A Hot Mess

I Love that phrase and lately I feel like it describes me quite well.  I think everyone has there own issues and things that they struggle with, but lately it seems like mine has come to the surface.  I am trying to figure out why and how to just be quiet and be still and truely be happy.  There are moments that I catch a glimpse of happiness and then theres another struggle. I guess thats life, you have to deal with all of the baggage that you bring from the past and learn how to let it go, thats what I am trying to figure out.  I love my family and I know that I am blessed, dont get me wrong, I just need to figure out myself.

Just a thought

Is it better to know the truth and be unhappy, or to live a lie and be happy?

Mi Familia

So, I thought I would tell you a little about my family:

 Dennis: We have been married for nearly 15 years. He works in the oil field and grew up in Baird TX.  He is super smart and loves history and old movies.  He is very old fashioned which is great at times, but we butt heads over that at times. He is a great husband and father and a very hard worker.

"Zeke": He is 16 and a really good kid, although of course he thinks he knows EVERYTHING. He is very smart, but struggling to figure out what he wants to do in this world.  I was single when he was born, he was and still is the light of  my life. He likes to play the drums, bass guitar and is a total video game nut. His nickname is Zeke, because when he was born I had a hard time naming him, so the nurses decided they had to call him something so they called him Zeke.

"Dozer": He is 9 and is a little comedian. He thinks everything is funny and loves to make people laugh. He is an athlete and loves baseball and football. He lives with his dad and spends the weekends with us. He is such a sweet boy with a big heart.

"Miss Priss": She is 3, and I do believe the nuttiest of all of our kiddos. She is very independent in some ways, but such a mommys girl. She loves to wrap her hands in my hair, that is her "security blanket".  She also loves her daddy, she gets so excited when he gets home from work. She was brought to us when she was 2 days old weighing only 4 lbs 14 oz. After a long battle we finally adopted her when she was 2 1/2.  She has alot of personality and is a rough and tumble girl. She loves gymnastics and horse back riding, and LOVES her big brothers.

Thats about all I can think of to tell you about my family!

All about ME!

I am a married to Dennis, we have three beautiful children. We will call them Zeke, Dozer, and Miss Priss.  Dennis works in the oil field and is gone alot, but when he is home he spends a lot of time with the kids and doing family stuff. I am a stay at home mom and that is currently exhausting. I think that blogging will (hopefully) be a good hobby for me.  We are foster parents and currently waiting for THE CALL, about another baby, which is exciting and terrifying at the same time. We have been fostering for a few years and have had some great and not so great experiences.  I really like to spend time with my kids, watch movies, shop, all of that normal mommy, girly stuff. So that is who I am...a mommy, wife, sister, and friend!
