Just dropping by...

I have been absent from my blog. I am so busy with my busy kindergartener. Admittidly, work messed with my computer and I no longer have access to log into my blogspot account from my work computer, which is where I did most of my blogging. I have been keeping up with you all though, because thankfully I can still view your blogs (except Karen, your blog shuts my system down completly, so I catch up with you when I'm not working). You all make my day go so much faster.

The holidays flew by, in fact, I'm still reeling from the fact that its no longer July, for some reason that is when time seemed to speed up.

I've been spending alot of time with my sister and her family. For those who have read previous posts, I had a serious falling out with my sister when my mom died. I decided that while I am deeply hurt by her actions, having her in mine and my Maddie's life is more important than focusing on something I cant change.

I simply cant believe my wonderful mom has been gone for three years. Fuck you Cancer.

My sister talked me into going with her to get my hair done...which I generally dont do anymore (long story, another post maybe). Since it was the day before the anniversary of my moms passing, it was easy to convince me to cut off 12 inches and donate it, once it was gone and layered, why not dye it? So thats what I did, it was very freeing and I feel like a new person!

My strong willed baby girl is still tearing up the Catholic school system and I think is trying to go for some sort of red light record. As much as I threatened, Santa was good to her anyway. I just couldnt help myself...

While she was home on Christmas break her beloved goldfish "goldie" died. Preceeded in his death were "swimmie" and "rocky". She took Goldies death pretty hard since she personally won him at the fair (I thought it was amazing he lasted as long as he did). I had to pinky swear to get her new fish. Came home from the pet store with 4 new fish and a puppy. I clearly have issues.

Meet Weasley. Maddie just calls him Weez. Mini hates him.

Don'tcha just hate it when you go to the store to buy a goldfsh and accidentally come home with a puppy? Glad to know I am not the only one that is super busy with a Kindergartener. Why was I not this busy during Pre-K?

Kudos to you for grabbing life by the horns and going for a whole new look! Hope you really love it! Your daughter is just growing up so fast! Why do they do that? Don't they know they are supposed to stay our little girls forever? Have a great week!

How did I miss this post? And is it me, Karen, whose blog messes you up at work? How awful!

I would love to see photos of your new 'do. Will you post some? Maybe Maddie can snap a few. She's adorable. As is your new pup.

It's so sad when those little fish die. We had that happen here, too.

I hope all is going well with "project sisterhood." It can be worth it, and it can NOT be worth it - only you know that, and I hope it is a blessing.

Cancer does suck. God bless you as you grieve for your beloved mother. I hope you have a happy Valentine's weekend!
