Harvest Craft Fair

Hey guys,

You're the bestest!!! Thanks for all of your sweet comments and thoughts regarding my life at this point. I've taken them all into consideration and cherish every word.

On a happier note I have a question. Should I enter into our local Fall craft fair? I'm part of the local arts council now and I can be a vendor for only $50. Not sure if it would be a waste. I've never done a craft fair before so not sure how well I would do. There are going to be a lot of families though and I've been told my stuff is very kid friendly. I was thinking of doing smaller paintings and prints/bookmarks as well. What do you think? I need to let them know soon. It's a 2 day festival on the Oct. 11-12 weekend. Not sure what to do. Could use some YaYa power with my decision!!! Thanks!

UPDATE: Well I found out I missed the deadline and I would have needed my own tent! OH WELL!!! So I won't be doing it. Thanks for your thoughts Jo!

Life feels so blah right now

Well I wanted this post to be a honkey dorey one but life just isn't that way right now. Still dealing with a lot of unforeseen issues we have going on which were sparked by a few things. Buying our new car, the Duke turning 35, the housing market, having a toddler, things at work not going well for the Duke. We feel stuck. He feels like he's trapped and I feel alone. He's distant and it's just not working out well at the moment. I've spent the last 2 Saturday's in tears. I've done more crying in the last 2 months than I have in the last 2 years. We've lost our identity together. We're coexisting at the moment and it doesn't feel good. I have spurts where he seems like the old Duke and is back to normal but then it fades and life is blah again. It's a constant emotional roller coaster and I can't take much more of it. I'm trying to distance myself from it but it's hard. I've told him how I've felt but we are both hurting. I find myself saying and thinking hurtful things which isn't like me. I hate who I'm becoming right now. I'm trying to stay positive it's just so hard. I haven't really been talking to anyone about it because it's hard to pinpoint what's going on. We basically said Yes to God on our 9 year anniversary and it's been downhill since. I'm sure a lot of it is an attack on our marriage, this is so not fun. I just want to be who I'm supposed to be and do what I'm supposed to do but I'm not sure where we got lost. Please pray for us it doesn't seem to be getting better, only worse. I love you all.

Turning 31!

I am turning 31 this Sunday and not really feeling anything about it. Another year has passed and not much has happened socially for us. I am struggling with my 2 children, and feel like I don't know what I am doing. What was God thinking?! LOL! Actually this week has been much better, hopefully it's not a fluke. I have been doing much better about a quite time in the morning and God has really been speaking to me during that time. I start the morning with a smile and so do my children. I have also started to watch our neighbor's kids's 4 afternoon a week for 2-3 hrs. I am making a little bit of cash so there's that incentive, spending $$$$. During that time Audrie gets a lot of attention from the 10 yr old girl and she seems a lot more satisfied in general. Her temperment has really taken a turn for the best.
Allergies suck!!!! My nose is running and my tummy hurts from all the snot!!!! LOL! TMI?
So if the weather hold out we will go to the Harwich Cranberry festival on Sunday and Mark is taking us out to dinner to a restaurant on the water in Orleans. I think I am going to take my birthday $$$ and shop for some ya, ya sister worthy clothes, I need to keep up with the hip style of the 1 child moms.

Well let me be the first to start!

OK so this was my crazy idea, hopefully it will go over well and we'll all be sooooo super connected through this little bloggy thing. Blogging is easy it's basically like sending an email but you post it instead of sending it. We can do little bloggy lessons if need be.

I am so blessed to have such close best friends as you all are to me. I truly miss our girls night out we used to do, our silly cookie/gingerbread parties our moanings about our hubbies, you know we had those, our crazy beach trips and everything else that was fun that we did. You are all the best! One day we'll have to have a reunion trip just the girls, no kids, no hubbies just us and fun!!! Can we do it yesterday?????

Anyhoo! Off to my good news!

I have a plane ticket, I REPEAT, I have a plane ticket for FL!!! Princess Crazy Like A Fox sorry this doesn't have any bearing on you. :( At least we just had time together. OK so the wee one and I are flying in on Dec. 15 and staying till the 26th. The Duke will be flying in probably on the 18th or 19th and leaving with us on the 26th. I hope and pray the flight there will be fine with me and Wee and a DVD. HEE!!!! So fun will be had by most of the YaYa's if they are around! More to come!!

I added a slide show of my Flickr but we can take that off if you like on the side. Also youtube videos, I put in nice tags so no nasty ones should pop up but we can take those off as well. You give me feedback I change things!!!

Well I love you all and my eyes are bugging out, time for bed!
