Honest Scraps from my Award

Of course with every award comes 'rules', here's my 10 Honest Scraps:

1. I’m an only child and other than my parents, my husband and my boys I have no other family. And b/c of that I am fully aware that I will be ‘alone’ in this world someday, and it scares me.

2. I had M2 b/c I didn’t want M1 to have ever have the above feelings. There will also probably be an M3 for that same reason. (However these feeling DO NOT make me agree with Octomom, or what she has done, but that is for another post)

3. My husband’s family doesn’t like me, and therefore doesn’t see him or our boys very often. And when we do see them it is drama filled and traumatizing for us. We saw them 3 times in 2008. Early on in our NICU stay they were asked to leave and were not allowed back into the NICU. They didn’t see M2 again until he was 6 months old.

4. I am a Chi Omega, my husband is an Alpha Tau Omega, our brothers and sisters set us up at an ATO party. One minute there was a bunch of people in one of the guys’ rooms talking and the next minute we realized everyone had left and we were the only two still in the room. The rest is history.

5. When we were told M2 was going to need a trach before he could leave the NICU I was traumatized and terrified. I didn’t think I could handle taking care of it or him. I even put the surgery off for a week b/c I was so scared. Now I think I would have done it months sooner if it would have gotten him home sooner. It’s so easy to take care of and not a big deal at all. But I didn’t know that then.

6. I could laugh at my boys all day and all night. They are both so rotten and ornery; the only thing I can do is hug them and laugh at them.

7. I work full time and by time I get home, make dinner, bath and put the boys to bed I am so tired I can hardly see straight. Because of this my house is not as clean as I would like, projects don’t get done, and I get no sleep. I also don’t get to spend near as much time with my boys as I would like.

8. I would love to lose 10 pds but can’t seem to find the time to work out. Or eat right.

9.I’m addicted to Starbucks. I could go there 3 times a day and it wouldn’t be enough. If I have $4 left to my name I would probably spend it there.

10. I think I’m beginning to get HIGHLY addicted to blogging, yet don’t have as much time to do it as I would like.

How’s that for honesty??

Thanks so much! I think we must have been separated at birth, considering #6-10!

If you ever find yourself with only $4 left to your name, at least let me know so J. can give you a good Sbux discount. You might be able to swing *2* coffees!

Great post! What's ironic, I feel the exact same about #1 as I am an only child too!

Thank you for the award! I don't know HOW you work and do the two kid thing- hats off to you! No wonder you need Starbucks!
