Good Evening everyone! Gosh where do I begin? I am 30 now; married and have two little girls Tyler Rose (4) and Ryanne Lily (3). My husband is an officer for the Navy and just happens to be away for the moment. I sure do miss my younger, carefree days of refreshing this journal, but frankly I don't have the time right most days.
Just wanted to say Hello to the few of you that have stuck it out..Sincere Blessings for your heart..
xxoxox,
Mandy

Can't wait until this weekend arrives. Parents coming to see me on Friday, and to relieve me of some busy time so I may do some grrly stuff I have been wanting to do with husband. Need sleep for sure. My daughter has her first tooth; don't think she is happy about it yet, but I sure am. Glad to find out that even during pregnancy my husband still finds me mighty sexy, it is nice. Must clean house today and bake bread to go with the baked ziti that is on the menu tonight... loads to do.. but if you are nice you will take this quiz and leave it in my comments box (gives this house mom something to read.. show your love) and re-use it blank for your own journal.. stolen from A-ron. xx

Happy Belated! [Jan. 4th, 2006|05:27 pm]

Happy Belated New Year's everyone; j. and myself were out of town for almost two weeks, I hadn't the time to post. Everything is going fine as of late, I am nearly six months pregnant and my daughter is almost ten months. I can hardly believe how much my daughter seems to change while we are visiting family; it makes me wonder if I am not stimulating her enough at home, I sure hope this isn't the case. I would post pictures of our holidays but I forgot the camera cable at my mother's. I can't even begin to relate how boring New Year's is for a pregnant woman. This was my second year in a row that I have been pregnant; not that I am a heavy drinker, but I have started to feel like I have been pregnant forever. This will be the last one so I will hold tight.
Hope everyone's New Year's and Holidays were nice.. I gotta run for now enchiladas are in the oven.. xx

Gosh, it has seemed as of late even though I have time I find it more interesting to read entries of others rather than shed any light on my own life. I found out Friday that we will be welcoming another grrl into the world sometime around the first of May. We have decided to name her Ryane Lily...Likes? I was sort of depressed since I was really wanting to experience what raising a boy may be like. I totally love raising our daughter now and know that I will enjoy raising two girls in the future. My husband and I have decided this will be the last of our natural children but hope to adopt a baby boy in the future.
We decorated our fresh tree about a week ago and everytime my nine-month old sees it she points at it and then claps; she is growing up so fast, she is even starting to stand without support. If only she would finally sprout a tooth after all her teething moods she has had lately. Just thinking about having to fill her stocking this year and after wrapping her many presents I am finally realizing that I have assumed the role my mother once held for me (my mom still to this day fills my stocking full of junk..some of the same things that she did when I was a child). I am really a parent...wow! haha. You would think I would realize this since duh I have had a baby for 9 months now, but for some reason this holiday is really hitting it home for me. OOoOoOoO... I have to mention.. my daughter has begun to dance... it is hilarious anytime she hears that Kanye West song - Gold Digger she bounces or stands and bends her knees.. It is hilarous!
Anyhow.. J. and I will be spending christmas with my family and I can't wait to take many pictures of all the fun and excitement we shall have experiencing Christmas along side Tyler this year.
I best get going Happy Holidays to all that read this.. may love, hope, and happiness fill your hearts.

Gosh, it is so funny how out of touch I get with things I usually enjoy. I guess the many tasks I take upon myself as of late has left me neglecting many of the things I truly enjoy. Since I have gotten pregnant again I have stopped reading as avidly as I once did; I find myself completely drained around 6 p.m. I am very sad about missing my art and creativeness I once possessed. I am sure this isn't permanent, but it sure does puzzle me for the time being. I suppose being a mother of a young one takes up most of my time; as well as the many errands I must make during the week to accomplish things not only for myself but for my husband as well. This has left me feeling empty on some level. I no longer seek excitement but find comfort in the daily routine. I am sure like all things, this too will come to past.
I am very excited to spend the holidays with my family who I miss with all of my being. I trully can't wait until I move closer and may enjoy seeing them more often. J. and I have decided to move even closer than we had planned before; he has decided to commute so I may benefit from being close while he goes on his cruises for six plus months. This will come in handy when I have two young ones to care for. San Diego is such a nice place to live, but sometimes having people close to you out-weigh the luxuriousness of living near the coast. I can't wait!
This is the update for now.. I need to catch up on my friend's entries...

Already Lonely.. [Oct. 23rd, 2005|12:03 am]

[Current Music |-0-]

So here I am at midnight; I just arrived home from dropping J. off at the boat, I never realized how much I enjoy being with him until these times. He is my best friend, my protector, my true love. I know consciously I will see him in a few days, but right as I dropped him off I started to miss him. I can only imagine the next time he is gone for 6+ months how I will feel? Being with someone in the navy is difficult.. you never quite get use to their long hours and many departures, I don't care what people say. I guess I am not that strong.. some wives just get use to the idea of them being gone, and often have more problems when they are home... that just isn't me I guess. I am just not whole without him.
Goodnight xx
