Is anyone really reading this?

Happy Valentines Day.  I felt like it just kept coming. Last night I got new earrings from Dave. This morning Dave threw a pile of new clothes on top of me - a skirt and two sweaters.  As a family we went to breakfast, the girls got their nails done, we got ice cream, topped it off with pizza for dinner.  While we were gone, we had out house cleaned.  I think everyone should have someone clean their house at some point. It's great to spend the day together as a family and come home to a clean house.

One of my best friends moved away this week. I'm already missing her and her family.

Luke went to astro camp this week, and he absolutely loved it. He was gone for three days and two nights. Ella kept trying to sleep in his bed while he was gone because she missed him so much. I think I missed him the most though. He's such a good boy. He's home now and all is well (well, he never did talk to his crush).

Lastly, we sold our van. It was such a good car for us. I was kind of sad to see it go. It's funny how sentimental a car can be.

Until next time...

Back and better than ever

Okay, here we go...feeling like myself again, for the first time in years. Trying to be a better mom and a better friend. Trying to get stronger and trying to put the past where it belongs - in the past.  I will never forget what's important, which is my life and the life of my kids.  Yesterday we said goodbye to an old friend, our Honda Odyssey. Today I met a new friend, the one in the cute blanket above. Her name is Claire, and she's making me very baby hungry. In fact, I'm starving. One day I will have a baby. When I set my mind to something, I usually get it.

The picture above is of me and my dear friend Kelly, who has been there for me when other's haven't. She's a true friend and I'll be forever grateful for her.

Need to get to bed. It's been a long day. Thank you for reading.

Today started off on a sad note: Ella threw up at school and had to come home. She threw up a few more times and had a fever all day. The house was pretty quiet with her in bed most of the day.

Dave had his interview today with Harvey Mudd for the full-time position today. It was a Skype interview, which was sort of weird, he said (especially since his office is down the hall from the room they Skyped from). Now we have to wait. I hate waiting.

Olivia had a fun playdate with her sweet friend Sophia. Ella was supposed to go too, but couldn't. Her best friend, Annabelle, is Sophia's older sister. They love playing with them.

Charlotte was such a great helper today: Dave put together a bookcase and Charlotte was there every step of the way handing him tools, parts, and whatever she could do to help.

Tomorrow I have a neurology appointment and PT.  Stay tuned for a post about our recent Utah trip, Christmas, New Years, etc.
