Well, Here it is...My life. I'm not sure I'll have anything important or life changing to say, but I have always wanted a place to write down my thoughts and even part of my history.
I'm off to church right now. Hopefully when I get back, I'll have something to say.
Wife to Brian
Mom to: Brendan, Kyle & Carolyn
The most important people in my life are my children. So, today I'm going to write about how I met the man who gave me my children. My darling husband, Brian.
At the time, I was a senior in high school & had just broken up with my boyfriend of two years. To help me out, my best friend Jenna decided to have a party. Well at the time, she was dating a guy from Harrison High School and he decided to invite all of his friends too. I had an amazing time getting to know all of these new people. I couldn't believe how sheltered I had made myself over the past two years while dating my loser boyfriend. I guess you could say I was blinded by what I thought was love but was actually stupidity. Anyways, at the party I met a guy named Jason who I later found out was a womanizer. He swept me off my feet and told me everything I needed to hear to feel good about myself. He was definately what I needed at that moment, I just wish I wouldn't have let myself go as far as we did. So, it lasted about a week before he moved on to his next victim. I didn't let this relationship hurt me though...I just chalked it up to being "the rebound guy".
However, One good thing did come from this fling. I met my future husband Brian. Brian was (and still is) Jason's best friend. At the time, Brian & I just became really good friends. We partied together, hung out, & even ended up getting a job at the same place. And looking back on it, I am so thankful that I was able to marry someone who was a friend first...not a boyfriend.
Not long after we became friends, Brian bought a house. His father was a realtor, so he was able to get a really good deal. He fixed up the house really nice and I shortly moved in as his roommate when his other friend decided not to. It stayed very plutonic for about 6 months. We really were friends, however I was quickly falling in love.
I fell in love with his honesty, his integrity to himself & his job, his loyalty to his friends & his family, his ability to do so much with his life, & his faithfulness. I knew the man I was going to someday marry, was staring me right in the face. Thankfully, I found out that he felt the same way about me. We then started dating & very quickly became married.
This year we will be celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary. I am so very thankful to God for putting this man in my life. He is the very best husband & excellent role model to my sons. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him.
Today was the last day of school for Kyle. He had a wonderful day & a GREAT report card. All A's & B's...I'm so Proud of him. I let him take a camera to school today so he could take some pictures of his friends. Come to find out, most of the pictures he took were of him & his girlfriend. I thought that was very sweet, until I realized that I'm not old enough to have a son with a girlfriend.
Oh well, I guess I can just keep having kids so I continue to feel young. Just kidding!
Today I took the kids to the zoo & I learned a very valuable lesson...Anything more than an hour is TOO MUCH! After about an hour, Brendan got hungry, Kyle was tired & both were just about to drive me nuts.
We went to my mom's house this evening for her 47th birthday. lol, Dad thought he'd be funny and switch the numbers to 74. It was a really nice evening. My brother & his girlfriend were there. I really like her too, I wish he would just pop the question already!
Yesterday was Kyle's Birthday party. (Even though his birthday isn't until Monday). He had 6 friends over, 2 of which stayed the night. It was a great time & Kyle was spoiled rotten again!
Today Brian is working at "Thunder on the Ohio". I feel so bad for him being in the hot sun for 13 hours. Poor Guy. We actually have an ozone alert for today. Guess I'll keep the kids inside.
Well now that Brendan is almost 7 Months, I think I'm ready to start TTC again. I keep wondering whether or not God will allow us to have another. With all of our problems in the past, I'm really scared to even try. I just don't want to get myself depressed with the TTC journey.
Tomorrow I will start to write the story of my two little blessings, and how lucky we are to have them.
I'm feeling a bit down today. I think I may be getting a cold. My lymph nodes are a bit swollen and my throat hurts. I can't stand being sick!
I've still got to go to the grocery, pick up Kyle, feed the baby and finish the laundry. Whew! Maybe I'll get back on the net a bit later.
It's just another Manic Monday....whoa whoa

I was only 19 years old and unwed when I realized I was pregnant. Thankfully, I knew that Brian was the love of my life and that we would be married. (Yes I was 3 months pregnant when we married)
It was one of the three best days of my life the day Kyle was born. I had been in labor for 18 hours and thought I could not go on any longer. I finally felt the urge to push and was told that I was 10cm. My sweet little baby did not want to come out though. It took two entire hours of pushing and praying to God before he finally came out with the forceps. My beautiful “little” Kyle came out screaming and weighed 10lbs 5oz and was 21 inches long. He was so handsome minus the cone-head feature from pushing for so long. I just couldn’t believe that I made something this perfect.
Fast forward 10 years later...I still thank God everyday for allowing me to have such a blessing in my life. I am truly not worthy of this gift.
