Why are kids such an afterthought to people. No one ever considers the children in their life decisions. Things like moving, divorce, re-marriage.Everyone just figures that children are resilient and that they will bounce back, but how resilient are they really? Why would they be any more able to bounce back than an adult? If anything they would be less able because they have got all the coping skills. Sure they will adapt, but that doesn'treally mean they are fine. You only have one chance to do things right so why do people treat their children like they are disposable?

Well that wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. Now if only I can figure out how to put pictures of my boys up. I took pictures of them in their halloween costumes. They look studly. LOL

William my oldest is going to be Harry Potter. James my 6 year old is going to be bob the builder. Otto, don't laugh it's a family name, is going to be a spider. So off I go to figure this out.

I didn't think I was ever going to get back into my journal. I have news I have been trying to post. It wasn't recognizing my password and for some reason it wasn't being mailed to me.

My mom had some amazing and rather shocking news. She is pregnant. She said she didn't even think about not having a period because since she has been going through meno-puause she will go months at a time without one. SO I a excited because I always wanted a brother or sister. It is strange to think that my boys will be the baby's nephews.

I am going to go figure out how to make private posts, because I need to talk about some stuff that I am not going to put on here.

Yippee!! Finally something good happened. I just paid my car insurance and it was way cheaper than I expected it to be. It was cheaper because my ex is the one who has had tickets and I only insured my car not his. I also still got the married discount because we are not divorced yet and haven't been seperated for a year. I was so happy. Maybe my bad spell is clearing up. I will hope it is anyway.

I am so depressed. I just feel like my whole life is going nuts. I have been bawling all day over everything and I am so tired. I feel like I haven't slept in years. I have so many things on my mind and all that thinking about them accomplishes is to confuse me more. I never solve the problems. I talked to my mother in law and apparently her mission in life is to fix my husband and I back up, so she won't leave me alone. God she is having a worse time about it then we did. I need a vacation

It's snowing. I love the snow. I hate the cold though. If only it could be 70 degrees and snowing I would be happy (I can dream can't I). The kids all want to make a snowman, but it hasn't snowed that much yet.

I realized today that Halloween is getting closer and I haven't even started to make the boys costumes. Ahhh...I don't even think they know what they want to be yet. Maybe I will force them to decide today so that I can get started. Maybe I will be lucky and they will all decide that they want to be something that Wal-mart sells the costumes for

I have been working double shifts the last couple days. I've made lots of overtime and it is all going to be for the holidays. I am really worried about the boys this year. This will be the first Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas that they are without their dad. We have always had huge celebrations on the holidays. We also have lots of traditions that we always did every year. Like, we always used to go to the pumpkin patch and so even though we will still be able to go, it isn't going to be the same.

My parents called and said they are coming for a visit. I am stressed though. My life is just so different than the life I grew up in. I don't know I guess I just don't feel like I belong anywhere right now. I feel like I don't fit in my own life. It's kind of hard to explain.

Speaking of parents. I got a call today from my MIL wanting to know what my soon to be ex wants for his birthday. Apparently he has neglected to mention to her that we are no longer together. What a wus!

It’s late and I can’t sleep. My oldest son is mad at me and he was giving me the silent treatment all night long. My two younger sons are happy with me though. You would think with it being two happy and only one sad it would balance out, but it doesn’t.

Anyway he is mad at me because I told them all that after Christmas they are going to start school. Right now they are home schooled. My two youngest are excited. They wanted to start today. My oldest said he NEVER wants to go to school. I just can’t afford to have a babysitter with them while I work. If they are in school then I won’t need to hire one. My husband and I have been separated for 6 months and my finances are really starting to get tight.

It’s times like this that I really hate my soon to be ex for putting us in this position.

Now I am going to try and get some sleep.

Subject:Moving stuff..
Security:Public

I hate having so much stuff to move. If I didn't have three children I think that my house would be completely empty except for furniture. I would love to just toss it all, of course that wouldn't make the kiddos very happy. So I am packing it all every last thing and I am almost done. I am down to the little stuff and I am just tossing it all in boxes toogether. I will sort it out when I am unpacking.

I have been trying to get all of our laundry washed before I go, but it has been raining for days and so I can't hang the clothes out to dry (my dryer dies last month). I tried hanging the clothes around the house to dry but even that is taking forever because of the humidity. i need to get a knew dryer because hanging the clothes out has been horrible for my sons allergies. All the clothes just pick up the pollen and stuff. He is allergic to just about everything.
