November 21

Well. I made it almost a year. I’ve posted at least once every single day since November 21, 2014. But I’m slightly burned out. So here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m taking September off. Mr. Kelpie AND Little Miss have birthdays in September and there are going to be parties.

Plus the boys go back to school in a couple weeks and we’ll be settling in to that routine. So I’m taking a much needed break. But I promise I will resume-with added enthusiasm-on October 1.

:) Promise.

Plus, maybe the downtime will give me time to write. I still have my exchange fix to do. Eek! So I just wanted to give y’all a heads up.

Thanks for understanding lovelies!

Oh and I should mention that the Sunday and Wednesday posts are already scheduled until the end of September so you’ll have those at least. Gotta keep y’all entertained somehow, right?!?


EDIT: Okay so I planned to post this on September 1, but due to a few factors, I’m having to post this early.

Since I always try to be very transparent with y’all I’m gonna explain, so if you’re not interested just stop reading and I’ll see you in October.

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety this year. And it’s hit a peak in the last week. Last night I had a HUGE panic attack that took me hours to calm down from and has left me zapped of all energy today. And those are happening with more and more frequency.

Plus, my MiniHulk (the oldest kidlet, who’s 6 1/2) has a condition called Prader Willi syndrome. He was diagnosed with it’s sister syndrome when he was 2 weeks old and we’ve operated for years under the assumption that he had Angelman’s ¬†syndrome. So we knew all about that. However, his neurologists redid the genetic testing last fall and changed his diagnosis. Well-I’m just now getting around to really delving into the heavy duty research about this new condition and it’s stressing me the fuck out.

Seriously. No parent ever wants to think that their child is going to have a harder time than other kids and this struggle is particularly hard for me. The *HUGE* thing with Prader Willi is food-they are always always always hungry. If you’ve seen pics of the kidlets you’ll know he’s the bigger one and it’s a struggle. He’s gained 5 lbs in 6 months, which for kids should be an entire years worth of weight.

So I’m having to step back early. Thanks for understanding lovelies! I’ll be back and better than ever in October. :)

  1. I hope you get to feeling better soon. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate, and no one can fault you for that. Take the time you need. I’ve been there with the depression and anxiety, (and still struggle with it constantly) so I get it. Your health, happiness, and that of your family comes before everything. I can’t imagine what hearing a heartbreaking diagnosis feels like, but I know it can’t be easy. Hugs, thoughts, prayers, positive vibes, whatever you need, know that I am sending them your way!

    1. Thanks darlin. We came to terms with his first diagnosis easily. But now it feels like we’re behind and I’m failing him, which is what really is bothering me. I appreciate it darlin!

      1. I can see how you would feel that way, especially with a changed diagnosis. We always feel like we are failing our children at some point, no matter the circumstances. But, you’re there, and doing your best, so that’s not even close to failing. *more hugs*

  2. My best to you and your family. Do for you and know you have support and well wishes coming your way every day. Your humor on lovely pictures will be missed – won’t lie – but you certainly won’t be forgotten! All good things !

  3. Take your time and get yourself and your son as healthy as you can. We’ll still be here but he won’t be this young forever, take the time to spend it with him and the others, you won’t regret it.
    If you need a shoulder or ‘ear’ you know where to find me. Hugs to everybody and crossing fingers that you can get your depression and panic, and your son’s condition, under control sooner rather than later.
