Random Summer Stuff

My life is starting to get back on track... we are going to be living in a brand new apartment at Jeremy's dad's house within the next month or so. I cannot WAIT to get back to stamping and card-making... I tear up a little every time I think of all my stuff sitting in a storage bin in California. LOL
Anyway - for now, here are some pics from the Summer. These first ones are from my birthday (August 6) - this is me, Missy, and Patty:

My friend Dave and me (we've been friends since we were about 15):

Me and Mis:

Me and Tanya:

Me and my guys - Jeremy, Dan, and Tim:

This was from another night out - Tracie, Kerry, me and Beth:

And these are my 2 sisters-in-law, Kelsey & Brittney - I just love them:

I will have more to share soon - although I am extremely grateful for all of the help we've received, I am REALLY looking forward to getting back to some normalcy and having my own place again.

First Day of School

No matter how miserable or depressed I am, no matter what else is going on in my world, this is what keeps me going, these kids right here:

This is Trevor (above), he's 17 and today is his first day of his SENIOR year. I'm so excited for him and proud of him. He's smart, handsome, and caring - he has a heart of gold. To me, that means a lot. He's the one who doesn't like to see me cry, so I try not to let him. He wants to fix all my problems, and that's a big burden for a kid - even an almost-grown-up-kid. :) I love him with all of my heart and he has really helped me get through the past few crappy months.
And these beauties are my daughters... LOL... Jamie and Cassidy. Cassidy is on the right, she's 15 and my "real" kid - Jamie is her BFF and my 2nd daughter, she'll be 15 in a couple of weeks.
They are both sophomores in high school this year:

They are my clowns, the ones who make me laugh when I feel like crying. Cassidy is at "that age" - she can be a wretched, rotten teenager one minute and a complete sweetheart the next. LOL But I wouldn't change a thing - she is my "mini me" and I don't know what I would do without her. I simply adore her.

I just dropped off Cassidy & Jamie and now I am off to bring Trev to school - then I am going to my friend Missy's house to lay in the sun by her pool for the next 6 glorious, quiet, kid-free hours! Peace.
