I've been trying to work on building my wardrobe back up lately, buying things here & there, even though I feel totally guilty when doing so. Which is pretty much pointless because I don't plan on being able to fit into anything remotely close to my current size for very long. I just feel so awful about the way I look now-a-days. Definitely not anywhere close to feeling "hot" or "sexy". I want my sexy back dang it! ;)
Ugh...okay before this get anymore

A parade of women came to the stage to call out their names, how long they have been cancer free, in treatment, or recently diagnosed. As these women, some so young, gave just a little glimpse into their battles, I was in the audience tearing up, my big sunglasses the only thing hiding my emotions. I thought about how I would handle somehting like this, how I would tell my family or even worse, leaving my beautiful boy in this big world without me to guide him. He needs me, I'm his mommy & these women's families need them too! They are all so amazingly strong & brave having dealt/dealing with having cancer while still caring & providing for their families.
I'm so proud to have been part of this event & will continue to walk for a cure every year as long as there are still mommies being taken away from their babies ( no matter how old those "babies" are), you should too!

Taking advantage of a 76 degree fall day, we took Carson for his first walk in the park yesterday. Carson of course fell asleep like he does on most of our walks, only to wake up as we are heading towards the car. But I'd like to believe he enjoyed the weather at the very least. The leaves are starting to change colors & the air was crisp. There were others enjoying a walk in the park & kids practicing football. Chipmunks & squirrels ran across the crackling leaves then up into the trees.
Paul & I strolled down a paved path through the woods with our sleeping boy in tow, talking about what our days had entailed and our plans for the next. I cherish the times that we get to have these "adult" conversations now nore than ever, instead of talking about how much Carson ate or how many poops he had done. Our evenings usually consist of dinner for all of us, dishes, diapering, playing, bathing, & bedtime. It seems like we have no time for each other anymore. I miss it being so easy to focus solely on one another.
But I know we are just going to have to plan time to spend together & also be able to work "Us Time" into "Family time". Because "Us = party of three" now.
