After reading my horoscope today (cheesy I know) it was centered around family and it got me to thinking.  Thinking of how truly blessed I am to have two beautiful boys. a loving husband, wonderful parents, terrific in-laws, fantastic brothers-in-law, sisters (in-law too), nephews, aunts, uncles and friends and the list goes on.  And while I used all kinds of words to describe them,  I am absolutely without a doubt very, very lucky to have each and every one of them in my life.  They have all touched my life in different ways but have all changed me for the better.  So I wanted to say thank you for being a special part of my life, you have made me a better person.

Superbowl Sunday

Even though it was a hard loss for the Steelers, we still had a wonderful time hanging out with friends.  We say this every time we get together but we do need to do it more often.

Just when I thought I was in the clear...

Well in case you are unaware the boys and I were in a car accident in December.  No one was seriously injured but we totalled my parents car (sorry guys!)  Other than being pretty sore and having cuts and bruises I was ok...or so I thought.  I have been having loads of pain in my neck and shoulders.  So I tried muscle relaxers, which I can't function on, so those quickly went out the door.  I have tried massage, which I thought would help, but unfortunately did not.  Went back to the doctors today only to learn that I more than likely have a pinched nerve caused by a herniated or bulging disk...yippee.  The doctor said next said that she could give me a shot in the muscle to help numb it and take some of the pain away, I said what the heck.  Well....she came in with the biggest stinking needle I have ever seen and proceeded to "stick" me 6 times.  I was breathing like I was in labor they hurt so bad.  Ethan said afterwards (when he finally looked up from his gameboy) "That sounded like it really hurt.  Are you okay?"  So just when I thought 2011 would be better then 2010 it is now a toss up.

Getting Started

So I have decided to give this blogging thing a try.  I figure if nothing else perhaps it will prove to be theraputic.  Trying to raise essentially 3 boys has proven to be very challenging, since I am coming from having no boys in my family (except my Dad, of course, but he knew when to run and when to bring chocolate!).  Sisters don't beat the crap out of each other, fart on each others head or think it's funny when the other one gets hurt.  This boy thing is still very foreign to me.  Each day is a new adventure and I am learning loads of stuff that I never thought would ever be useful, unless you are trying to raise boys.  Still I will have to say that most days I welcome the challenge. but most certainly fall more in love with them every single day.
