Are you sitting down?

Because I scrapped!!! It's been like 15 months since I actually scrapped any pictures, and while they're not my own pictures right now, they're pictures on a page! WHOO HOO!

<---- this is the cover

this is the first page... I left a spot for journaling.
These are the next two pages, but below they are actually reversed from what they are in the book. So, these are the pages I've finished so far. :)

I love my family!

I really do. I know you're all waiting for the "but", aren't you? There isn't one! Surprise!! I really do love my family and my kids, and sometimes it surprises even me!! I just know I am doing what I am supposed to be doing, raising my kids... And working on doing it better every day.

There you have it. I was looking at my kids in the picture I posted on my blog and just realizing how great they are! Because they REALLY are... :) It makes me happy.

Here's a good lookin crew!

Check these guys out!!!

It's been a while since we had family pictures taken. A little over two years. So this year when we had all of Shad's brothers and sisters together, we all went to Catherine Albertson Park and had professional pictures taken. Here is the best one of our family! Check it out, everyone is looking and smiling, no one has their eyes closed.... It's amazing!!! I am surprised. The only unfortunate thing is there were no props for short kids, so there's a fat knee right in front next to my daughter's head... Oh well... last year at this time it would have been 20 lbs fatter, so....

Hopefully next year, it will be 20 lbs lighter still... hmmm... maybe another two weeks at my mom's is in order??? :)

That's what I felt when I found out I didn't get this job I interviewed for.

We finally found my crappy sperm donor ex husband. Well, at least his place of employment. And now what? you ask....

well, now NOTHING. Because I don't happen to have $3K lying around to retain the attorney.

Say nothing about the fact that he owes me about $25K in back child support. I'd gladly let the attorney have every penny of it if the court terminates his stupid rights.

I think Keanu Reeves' character put it best in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure when he said, "You have to have a license to fish. You have to have a license to drive a car. But they'll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father."

Ain't it the truth? Ain't it the truth....
