It's been a while...

I know, I know...I can't expect my blog to grow if I never update it.  So what has kept me away? One word...life.  Life happens and there are only so many hours in the day to get things done.  So this blog gets neglected.  Starting next week (I need to be able to start on Sundays) I will have better things coming.  For now, let's do a little catching up.

Rex Allen turned one on September 7th!  I can't believe my tiny boy is now a 1 year old.
We had an UNO themed party that I saw on pinterest.  As soon as I saw it, I had to run with it.  My mom made the cakes, my sister made the Happy Birthday Banner, and I threw everything else together.  I'll do a separate post with all the pictures and details.

On May 30, we lost my Grandma, my Mom's Mom.  She fought a long and hard battle with Alzheimer's and dementia.  She suffered a massive stroke and heart attack that day, and though the decision was hard, we knew she was tired of fighting.  I still haven't been able to blog about her yet because the emotions are still so raw.

My pain is overwhelming.  On good days I can make it through half a day of work.  On really good days, I can make it all day.  On really bad days, I can't get out of bed.  Pre-Approval for Botox injections is still tied up with the insurance.  They have to approve it before I can get it done, because I can not pay out of pocket for it.  It's been over 2 months now that I have been waiting and given the run-around.  I'm about to give up on it all together.

For the most part work is ok.  There are obviously attendance issues because I miss A LOT of work due to pain.  But, I have been there long enough that I qualified for intermittent FMLA.  So many hours per year that I can use for my illness.  It protects me from getting fired for my attendance.  I'm not abusing it just because I have it.  My end goal is to work 40 hours a week.  There just are times when that can't happen.

Lexi started Pre-K in August.  She loves it.  But she has always loved doing school work.  She even gets to ride the school bus from her school to Daddy's office after school. 

The Christmas season is approaching and I still have no idea where the money is going to come from.  I'm going to be helping my mom out with some crafts, so she is going to give me a portion of the sales. 

So hang with me.  Share the blog with your friends.  'Cause there are going to be some great things coming up soon!
