Hi. I hope to find everyone well. I just wanted to drop in and apologize for my long and sudden absence. As you see in the title this year has not started off good in any way shape or form. and here is why....
Jan 1. Fell up the basement steps and bruised the crap outta my shin.
Jan 2. Big all but fists out fight with my husband. (Which oddly enough rarely happen anymore...)
Jan 23. Someone from the kids school turned us into DCFS for environmental neglect. Which the case worker said it was a waste of her time to even come out in investigate because our house is cluttered due to 7 people living here and waiting to get moved back into our regular house... but it was clean. (and we have been told your supposed to get some warning they are coming... Yeah right we had less than 5 minutes to explain to my older 2 what was going on before they showed up...)
Jan 24. Some &^%$er hit my car and took off. My dad was driving my kids to school because my husband had to work and he was going to take them to the Jazzy Dad's breakfast. Luckily no one was hurt but last fall when it broke down we pulled full coverage off of it. Well even though it was a hit and run it's not covered because we only have uninsured motorist.... So my car needs about $2500 worth of repairs and we can't get our freaking insurance company to cover it...
Jan 25. My niece is in a car accident because her friend misjudged traffic. Luckily she is ok too.
Jan 31. Find out Zander has croup. Poor little man has been sicker then hell.
Feb 1. Mom goes back to the hospital. She has pneumonia and 2 blood clots in her lung. She is not doing good at all. Every time they take her off of her Bi PAP machine her blood ox levels drop into the 70's.
Feb 1. Also we find out Jonathan has a really bad case of strep....
Feb 2. My sister called to tell me she had a miscarriage. The only good news we had all year was that I was gonna be an Auntie again... The bad thing is she is probably hemorrhaging. She called me to ask what is normal for a miscarriage since I had so many between Adryan and Zander. I feel so bad for her right now. I know what she's going through. That is something I wouldn't wish on anyone.
Some where in this mess of time was also me having Zander jump on my ribs and bruise them badly and me having a panic attack. Also my husband got bumped in the company vehicle at work and now they are trying to tell him he can't drive anymore and it may go on his driving record... (A bump mind you that wasn't even his fault. Some lady bumped his company vehicle...) So now his day job is in jeopardy.
On the plus side. Adryan has been doing better at home with his behavior. No meds yet but he's been so good lately. (Minus a few mishaps but he is really trying hard.) I swear if things don't start getting any better I am gonna end up in the mental ward.
Anyways. Sorry for my layout. I just had to get it all out right now, but this is why I have been absent from dA so much this last month. I am sick and have been spending all time I am not chasing kids or doing things that need to be done killing demons on Diablo 3 to de-stress. (and remarkably it helps sometimes.)
I am thinking about giving up my groups but more to be posted about that later. I am gonna mull it over a bit before I do anything I think I my regret later...
