Over a Year!

Wow..it has really been a year since I've posted.

That's sad.

Well, that's also what happens when you have to live life!

First and formost, I hate to announce that my grandma had passed away June 1st, 2009. Then in February my uncle passed away suddenly in a car accident. All within 8 months, my mom lost her mom and her brother. God bless her, she's hanging in there.

Now on lighter notes:

Family updates:

Me- I started my first semester of school on June 1st of last summer. I've completed 7 classes so far within this year with a 4.0 (apparently I'm doing better than last time!!).
We became pregnant with our third son in July, had him on April 13th in my third c-section.
Introducing Nathan Todd. He was 6lbs 15oz, and 18 1/2 inches long

My friend Stacy took those adorable pictures of Nathan! *She also has been calling me out several times because I'm slacking on my blog!!

Carl is doing well. He has only fought in 2 fights within the last 2 years and is 1-1 (the 'loss' was by decision not a KO thank goodness). He has found a different employer, who is wonderful. Only problem is, is that he took a $3/hr pay cut which hurts a bit.

Owen is doing great. He's going to be 8years old July 25th! I know- I can't believe it either!! He completed 2nd grade, but we've decided to have him repeat 2nd grade due to his maturity level. He's definitely bright enough, it's the paying attention and not worrying about what everyone else is doing that's the problem! He just finished his 3rd season of baseball and is doing awesome. Owen decided to not play football this year and to wrestle instead, which with his small stature I think will be great for him

Cole is getting so big! He'll be 4 years old July 6th (just a couple weeks!) and will start preschool in the fall. *sniff* He's not my baby anymore!! He is definitely going to be my rough and tumble ladies man. He's a riot!

All in all, we're doing well. It was a rough transition coming home from the hospital for me though. My OB and I decided that I was to start on an antidepressant for PPD (postpartum depression) the last trimester of the pregnancy- which we did. I honestly thought that this would alleviate quite a bit of the depression.

It did not.

I went a holy mess at home with myself. I was fighting with myself on the quality of my care for the kids, my husband, and the house. I basically was beating the hell out of myself for stuff you really shouldn't worry about when you bring a newborn home.

My OB and I switched my antidepressant, and now I'm speaking with someone to help with the crazy talk in my head. I'm seeing someone for the fact that I don't want to be on antidepressants forever- but need to take care of the crazy talk in my head so it doesn't come back and bite me in the rear.

If you made it through all this jumble...good for you!! *You get a gold star!

I'm going to make more of an effort to continue this blog for purposes of my sanity!

*I'll get back to you on that star ;)
