This hasn’t been the best week of my life, but it certainly could have been a lot worse. Let’s just say, a TON of family drama. I can’t lie, seeing the dynamic between other families makes me incredibly jealous because of what I didn't have. I try not to feel sorry for myself but I just can’t help but think about how much better my life would be if I had a good support system that always had something to positive to say to me when times get hard. Unfortunately, times get hard because it is the complete opposite.
This post from Megan, one of my favorite blogs, filled me with envy and made me think about the kind of relationship I missed out on because my father was anything but a doting and loving dad.
Oh well, I know now that nothing I do can change the past, or even the future. All I can do is provide that protection and support to my future children. Because, trust me, my household will be nothing like what my sister and I grew up in. I will always tell my children I love them, a million times a day. I will be there to listen to them and help them when they need it and I will never EVER call my terrible names. There is one positive to this whole situation and that is that I have been getting to wake up to my nephews adorable face every morning and everything we go through is worth it, because of him.
This is him last night before bed
He is such a blessing in my life :)
On a much lighter note...
Today is Izea Loco which is a fun filled day at a new location at the end of every quarter. This time it is at Dave and Busters. Translation-- games, food, beer & FUN! Really looking forward to having a happy ending to this week.
Where will I end my night? Downtown, home cuddled up with my mini man, Europe?
My shopping list for this weekend
Ok, ok-- I know, I have a
severe mild loulou obsession.
