July 16th 2008

Yowza...10 days! Like I said before time is passing super fast...which is a good thing with a deployed husband, but there is a lot of things to do rest for the wicked, right?

Well here I am about to go to TX for my 30th birthday in a couple of weeks. I am so excited to have company, and have a hand with the kids. AND I CANNOT WAIT to see my brothers! If I have never written about them before, I have 2 brothers, Bill and Tom. Bill is 10 years older than me, and Tom is 9 years older than me. Yes, I am the baby and the only girl, and only dropped out of my princess syndrome, when my dad started viewing me as a mom versus a sweetheart. Any way, I love my brother dearly! And because they are men we rarely talk other than when we are visiting.

Also I have some updates on my daughter Ryann. After 2 years of fighting her to get her to poop in the potty and not in her pants, I can safely say, she is COMPLETELY potty trained. No accidents in 6 weeks! She did well at this last summer, when Scott was away, and then reverted when he got back...lets home 6 months is long enough to make it stick! She has also begun to take showers and swings herself on a swing....she is a big girl now. I am so proud. She is such an amazing girl. She is sweet, beautiful, mischievous, and adorable! I am so in love with her. I cross my fingers daily, that as she gets older we continue to stay close.

Ethan is doing pretty good at therapy, and LOVES his teachers there. He gets a ton of attention there, and all the staff seem to be in love with him. This is so important since he is used to always being the one in trouble, or the "bad kid". He has found a place for acceptance.

BIG NEWS! Well Bubba & Rye, now has a subsidiary...Lilac Ave. I opened up a candle shop..full of soy candles with cool containers. It has been 6 days and I have had 2 sales, many hearts, and many views! I had the best critique ever on Etsy, when a poster said, "you are destined for greatness"...lets hope that holds water.

So if you are interested:

1. This upcoming trip to Texas.
2. A great relationship with my family.
3. A truly incredible daughter.
4. Finding a place where Ethan can feel included and loved, and fulfilled in spirit.
5. Loving every minute of my business!

Lyrics for Scott:
"I won't go, I won't sleep, I can't breathe, until you're resting here with me.
I won't leave, I can't hide, I cannot be until you're resting here with me"- Dido
