Saying Goodbye

Friday was the first night I had been out without the boys and without dh in a very long time.
I got to go to a bar, have a few beers, and hang out with some friends... It should have been a lot of fun...but it wasnt. I should have had a good time....but I really didnt... I should have been happy to just be away...but I really wasnt.

It was my friends going away party.

The job market in MI sucks so bad that jobs just arent available. you can work at Target or Meijers part time...but no full time jobs... So, My friend had to take a job in Iowa.

Dont get me wrong... I am beyond happy for her! She deserves a good job. She will do great at this job!

Selfishly though... I'm hating the fact that she is moving away.

I dont have many friends... in fact I can count them on my hands... so...losing a friend is very difficult for me.

It is also going to be difficult for my she is their Auntie. She has spent a lot of time with them...she even went to Guatemala with us to visit K for Christmas 2 years ago.

She decorated our house when E came home.

She was there for their baby shower, their birthday parties, and to just hang out with us at the house.
Now... I know Iowa isnt on the other side of the world...but right now it might as well be.

Phone calls are is great.... but it doesnt make up for one on one... it doesnt make up for just dropping in... it doesnt make up for shopping trips.
I would have thought that by the time I was at this point in my life that I would handle these things better... unfortunately that isnt true. I am actually crying right now. It takes a bit for me to do that. I can only hope that we are able to maintain our friendship over the phone and over the Internet....and that we will be able to meet up in person sometimes.
I hope that my very good friend finds HUGE success in her new job!
I hope that her new house is the perfect house!
I hope she finds the man of her dreams!

Most of all.... I hope she doesnt forget us....

Getting there...slowly

Well we had a better day yesterday. The boys actually slept! Well ok...E had to come into my room about 2 am...but still...they took a nice long nap...and then wanted to go to bed.

Our secret weapon to MAKE them want to go to bed???


Yes...we went to family actitivity night...although they boys were pretty dissappointed... See they have hot wheel toys right now...and they were completely OUT of toys...
What??? OUT OF TOYS??? oh the tears that were shead last night!!!

The only thing that brought them back to happiness was ice cream. Yes... I hate to see my boys cry! So, we treated them (an us, of course) to some ice cream!

Well I am anxiously awaiting new pics of Lady L...and to see how much she has grown over the last month. Oh...and I wonder if she has some earings now??? I hope soo!!!!

We are still debating over a visit trip...but looks like if we do it, it would be in the beginning of Dec. Just wish I knew the right thing to do here....
Anyone have a crystal ball for me????

The croup is CRAP!

Yea....ever heard of Croup??

I hadnt either...but then again there are alot of things I didnt know about until I became a parent.

2 of my boys have the croup. Basically...they cough...and cough...and cough...and cough.
Oh...and then they throw up because they have coughed so much. Then they return to coughing.

This is the first day in 6 days that they have been able to sleep without me. does give me a great feeling to know that the boys want me to be near them...but it kinda dims the warm moment when they cough continuously in your face while you are trying to sleep.

I do feel sorry for the little buggers... it isnt their fault that they are so sick. They also dont understand yet that they will get better...they just sit there coughing and crying. It can wear ya down after awhile. But, at least K man is beginning to feel that is good...and they are sleeping on their own...and that is GREAT!!!!!

Maybe now I can get down to the business of writing my damm personal statement for my law school apps.... yea...that is what I need to do!!! should have already been done...but I'm a slacker. That is S-L-A-C-K-E-R. I seem to write much better under pressure...but not self inflicted pressure. So, I'm going to have to come up with a strategy on how to get some "pressure" to do this...way before the actuall date. People like me truly need to get their applications in early. I dont have the most attractive application as it I dont need to get it to them after they have had thousands of more attractive ones... I might look better the earlier they see my application. At least that is what I keep telling myself.
I had thought about just using an online profile for my statement...but then again I would actually like to go to law school...and not just waste the 80-100$$$ that it cost to apply to these schools. If it were free....hmmm...maybe.

New Pics K and F!

We finally had time to get new pics for K-man's 2nd birthday and to celebrate F-man joining our family!

I am so proud of my boys!!! They did GREAT during picture time!!! I'm soo happy that we were able to capture pictures that truly show off their personalities!

F-man's Baptism

On Wednesday October 10th, F was baptized into the Catholic Church!

Our friends Jesus and Cony came all the way up from Queretero Mexico to stand is as his Godparents! They were here from Monday till early Sunday Morning! We not only had a great visit, but I'm so happy they were able to celebrate with us and I'm so happy that F has two wonderful Madrinas and A wonderful Padrino!

We were very lucky that Deacon Raphel was at our mass on Wednesday morning so that he could do the baptism ceremony in Spanish so that Cony and Jesus could understand it more. IT was a lovely ceremony!
