Last Part of the Freebie Kit is at the bottom of this post!

Hi my friends. Feels weird writing here, lol. I was thinking about it. I know people are reading this ( it shows up on the digiblogger thing), and it feels kind of...how do I put it...surreal....like am I really talking to anyone...or is it just me talking to myself...my journal....I have such a hard time not putting things down that I feel like typing. I def think it is time to start back with my personal journaling. There are things I would share here that I wouldn't have a problem sharing...but might not be P.C. enough for everyone. Isn't that so funny...to censor our thoughts and feelings....for me...when I start typing...so many things come out...and I end up going back and trying to find the spelling errors, too personal things, things that might not be taken right and fixing them.


So...our anniversary was pretty anti-climatic. Don't get me wrong...I am not feeling mad or cheated....I have a pretty great husband. He is such a babe (to me), he is accepting, understanding, funny, super smart, great with the boys. He does whatever I ask without hesitation...he reallllly tries to make me happy. But it gets so hard sometimes. I am such a happy, wordy, people, gabby kind of person...and so EMOTIONAL! and he so isn'''''''ttttttt. He is the epitome--the stereotype of ENGINEER,lol. Very analytical, unemotional...very here and now...lines and numbers. But he has just enough of humor, sexiness, desire etc to keep it together. But....sigh...sometimes I REALLY miss the romance and spark that comes with the fire of like minds.

We went to Chase's first t-ball game....it was so funny...more of the same....but totally adorable. Pics to follow soon.

Then we hung out together all day. We took the kiddos to Bran's sister's house so we could go to a yummy Italian Dinner then hit the sheets...no...not the way we should have as we were celebrating our anniversary *wink*. I had Hayden and he had Chase. Really need to either get over this co-sleeping issue with the boys or just break down and get a bigger bed.


Yesterday I got to finish a kit that I had made awhile ago...but I redid it...revamped it. It will be released tomorrow at digital freebies for 40% off then over at SDK. (Make sure you are signed up for both of their newsletters...I will be having a bonus in both)

I actually like it a lot, lol. I am so hard on my kits.




Ok...not sure if anyone remembers...at one point we considered adding on to this house so that my parents could move in with us. WAIT!!! Don't run in terror. My dad is retired and my mom will be in a few years (and she works graveyards). So....we wouldn't all be together all the time. Plus...I grew up in an extended household...from 8 till 16 I lived with my mom, aunt, grandparents and stepdad was added at 12. I turned out ok....lol. But...due to some concerns I had with things I won't go into...we have decided maybe they should just get a house in town (right now they live over 2hrs roundtrip....we are super close so this doesn't work). So..we are going to go look at a house for them tomorrow. I would really love them to live up here. The boys would love it too.

Missy just told me today that they have an actual date for leaving...May 24th...sigh..I am sooooooo sad about the whole thing. For so many reasons. Bran doesn't have many friends...and he and Greg get along so easily. The boys just love playing together. I have gotten soooooo attached to their boys...Missy called me today because Reide said my name for the first time and he said it to me and I silently let some tears fall. And I like having Missy to hang out with. I am an only child...much to my sadness. I am also a VERY social person. I love people...all sorts for all reasons. I love talking, sharing, exploring. When I worked this was just fine. But now that I am a SAHM my resources are a little limited (working on this, lol) So...the thought of someone I actually like, that the kiddos like and that lives just across the street leaving....really just makes me sad.

Totally off subject...I have an obsession....yummy yummy Pita Chips. OMG...I love love love them.




I can't have them around without almost eating the whole bag. sigh...no self-control.


Oh...and on my journey to self discovery...music really really has a strong affect on me...I love to sing, to hear music...to dance. When I can do any or all of those...life takes on a new glowing sparkle for me. Maybe that is why I am not as happy as I once was...I used to go dancing Everyyyyyy week. I lovedddd it! Now...just me and the boys getting our groove on once in awhile...I need to dance and immerse myself daily in music that makes me feel alive.


Ok...have lots more to say...but boys are calling to me, lol. Brandon is still working VERY long hours...so it is Supermom to the rescue 24/7.

Sounds like your human Tracy. It's in our nature to wish things were a little better then they are. I was thinking the same thing about my husband the other day. Then I thought about the few times I've seen what seemed to be the perfect husbands... found out later they were abusers or cheaters. Guess we'll just have to put up with less then perfect Lol!
Have a GREAT Day! TFS

yeah, I wonder who is reading my blog most of the time too- other than the few digiscrapping friends who make comments regularly (thanks!). I started it in large part for my family members to read, but they dont' leave comments at all- figures, huh?! My mother assures me that she and my Dad and my grandparents read it, so I guess it is worth the bother of doing. I too go back and edit stuff a lot because I think better of posting some things.

I don't think Mark and I have had a romantic anniversary in years- it seems like we are always on vacation driving across the country somewhere and sharing a tent or hotel room with 4 (now 5) kids. That doesn't help the romance department at all LOL He's a good man though, so I'll keep him.

Sorry to hear that Missy is moving away but they'll be in your heart and mind so think of them often and they'll be right there...take a lot of pictures before the 24th. I had to laugh when you said you hubby was the typical Engineer I'm sure mine says the same about me :-)

It's great your parents are moving closer that will be great for the boys and you and the hubby.

Thanks for the freebie off to read more of your blog.

Awww Tracy...I know how it is to be surrounded by engineers. My dad is one, brother-in-law is one, uncle is one and my best friend is one. And of course I'm like you...the creative, nutty, crazy one. It can get interesting. But I guess they always say opposites attract, right?

Thank you for the cute kit...I've got all the parts now, and can't wait to use them!

Lori said...

Thanks so much!

slkone said...

Tracy, I can relate. My DH is an engineer. In fact, I just read that passage about your husband to him (I hope you don't mind) because it's something I complain to him about a lot. Where's the ROMANCE?

PS--love the name of your favorite snack! Oh, and thanks for the lovely goodies!

mrs.S said...

OMGosh, Tracy, I soooo understand what you mean about our husbands being so unemotional! Looks like we're on the same boat, sweetz! LOL!!!
