I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

My photo
I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

They're Back

And the world is as it should be once again...

Mark and I went to the grocery store this morning to fill the fridge and pantry for the kids.

Jake and Sara both have a friend over today to spend the night.

We've been to blockbuster to rent movies and a game for xbox.

We've been to the dollar store to buy candy and old fashioned paper pop corn bags for the "movie marathon night" the kids are planning.

The fridge has been opened at least 20 times.

The screen door has slammed shut more than that.

The phone is ringing off the hook.

"MOM"! has been called down the stairs about 15 times so far.

GOD! It's good to have them home!

Yay! Glad to hear it. Mine is going to her dad's tonight, and her stepmother is out of town for the next two weekends. She's thrilled! lol

I'm so happy for you! The ones that still live at home are all home tonight and my 17 year old cooked dinner for everyone. I love it.

So glad for you to have your chaos back home!
