We’re here.

And, it’s not so bad. They did quite a few renovations since I moved out last year, and so far I haven’t had any problems with neighbors or anything. We moved in last Friday, and are still unpacking the last few things. 740 square feet doesn’t stretch very far. Oh well. It’s liveable, and it’s cheap. Things could be worse! D and I have been talking a little lately, and he’s making all his usual promises to start sending child support. I’d love to believe it, but I have to have cash in hand first. Until then…we’ll see. Kids are doing well, they like the new place and their new room. They are on spring break this week, and once school starts up again next Tuesday, we’ll have a little extra walk to get to the bus stop (different school zone now, but they can still finish out the year at the old school), but even that is not so bad. Overall, life is good at the moment.

Ugh, how I wish I had a digital camera right now! My mama’s birthday is tomorrow, and I whipped her up an art bag from scratch. Cool retro print canvas, hand stitched denim applique spelling out “art” on the front, blue cotton lining with a wicked pocket, and a cool purple leather handle. It’s for her to carry her supplies to her classes and such. I can’t even begin to describe how cool it is! Maybe I’ll get mom to snap a picture so I can share. I’m so proud of it 🙂 Oh yeah, in case you didn’t know, my mom is an artist!  She and I just had a really great time at Clay Day at Artists Oasis , and made several really cool pendants. One of the ones I made is going into a swap package for a buddy over on Craftster. I’m so excited to be into swaps again…this one is Fairytales and Folklore, and I’m having an absolute blast.

 So see, I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Pulling myself out of the crushing depression of a few months ago. Living my life to the best of my ability, and enjoying my kiddos every day. Life is good 🙂

One year

365 days.

Natalie’s 4th birthday.

Gabe’s first day of school.

Jack’s birth.

Gabe’s 6th birthday.

Thanksgiving.

Trips to the science museum.

Jack rolling over for the first time.

Christmas.

Gabe’s first loose tooth.

New Years.

Valentines Day.

Saturday picnics at the park.

Easter.

Jack crawling.

Jack walking.

Gabe’s last day of kindergarten.

Jacks first word.

And these are just the highlights. There are so so many more little things that make up the joy that is having children. You missed them all. Your choice. No phone calls. No presents. Nothing. Actions speak louder than words. So much louder. What are they supposed to think now? One year later? Still nothing?

So sad.

A good place to be.

Every so often I hear something about The Jerk and one or two of his girlfriends. Not sure if all of them are kissy kissy girlfriends, or hey-I-happen-to-have-a-vagina girlfriends, but it doesn’t really matter. Some of them have had the nerve to email me on Myspace, some of them continue to call my cell phone and send me cutesy little “oops I thought this was D’s number” text messages. In the beginining, it made me sad and upset. A couple of months ago, it made me mad. Hell, a few weeks ago it still pissed me off. But you know what I realized with today’s message? It really doesn’t bother me anymore. I sat back from my computer screen, and asked myself what I honestly felt. Mostly- it was pity for these girls for a) feeling the need to be nasty to me, when I mostly have no idea who they are and b) being with him in the first place. It honest to God doesn’t upset me anymore, and this is a nice place to be.
