I don't understand people in this world we live in. Yesterday two St Pete police officers were killed by a crazy man. They went to his house to serve him with a warrant and he opened fire! This happened at 8ish in the morning and they finally went back into the house around 2:30 in the afternoon to find the gunman dead inside the house.
I can't even imagine the pain that the officers families are going through. To know that they will never get to see their husband/father again is unbelievable! My heart really goes out to them.
It's things like this that make me really stop and think about my life. Am I living every day to the fullest? Am I doing the best I can to raise my children? Have I made all of the right decisions for them? The answer is the same for all of them, I don't know......
I need to make some changes in my life, I need to live better.
Here is what I plan to do from here on out:
1. Spend as much time with my kids as possible, even if it's just reading a book, make every day count.
2. Start living healthier. I am far beyond being healthy and I need to change this, for my kids. I need to be around for a long time and the way I am living is not the way to do it.
3. Try and be a better person......not sure what I am going to do about this yet, but I am doing some thinking on this one...

Well next week I will be traveling to North Carolina for a work trip. At first I was unsure if I wanted to go, I haven't been away from my kids very much. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized yes I want to go. Even if it is for work, I am excited to just sleep in a bed by myself for 2 nights! No getting woken up for in the middle of the night potty runs, no husband hogging the blankets/bed! I can't wait! Even though it will only be 2 nights, it will be glorious. And maybe it will give my dear husband a better understanding of everything that I do to make our house run so smoothly(HA!) I haven't told the kids that I am going yet, there will be 8 million questions to go along with why they can't come, so I will tell them the day before I leave. Hopefully they won't be too dramatic(yeah right).

My husband and I decided that we would take a family vacation for a couple of days. We had received free tickets to Universal Studios of Orlando Florida and that seemed like the perfect vacation! We got a great deal on the hotel room, so away we went. We left on a Thursday and went to the parks on Friday. We had an excellent time! The kids love doing just about anything, as long as it involves mom and dad! We brought along my little sister, who is 17 so I guess that really doesn't classify her as little anymore! They run this program called "baby swap" which I think is fantastic. For the rides that the kids were too little to enjoy, you all just wait in line and when it is your turn, on person from your group goes to the "baby room" and waits for the other adults to get off the ride. When the ride is over you go meet up in the baby room and the person who waited can now go to the front of the line with another person from your group and ride the ride. It made the trip very easy. The kids especially loved all of the rides in Dr. Seuss Land! They were laughing at everything. I absolutely love to hear my kids laugh, it is the best sound in the world I think.

This is the first time I have ever sat down to write all the things that are running through my head. Who knows if anyone will ever read it, I don't think I much care if they do. I just need to get it all out. I have been married to my husband for 3 years now, though it seems like we have been together forever. We have two children, a daughter and a son, the perfect family(yeah right lol)! If you would have asked me 6 years ago if this is how my life would have turned out, I would have laughed in your face with a quick HELL NO! I was always the one who said they never wanted children, I am too selfish I used to tell myself. But now, here I am with two of the most amazing children a girl could ask for, and I couldn't be happier! My life may be crazy, living paycheck to paycheck, never sure if we have enough to make it the next week. And ya know what, I don't care! As long as I have my husband and my babies, that is all I need to make me smile. I work an insane amount of hours at my job and sometimes I wonder if it is worth it. I miss so many moments with my kids, but in the end I know it is inevitably all for them anyway. They will understand, won't they? I spend and insane amount of time with my family. My parents, my little sister, and my older sister with her husband and two kids (also a boy and a girl lol). My husband hates me for it, but ya what, I don't care about that either. I love them, and they are why I am who I am and I love spending time with them, even if they drive me crazy sometimes! I guess that is all I will say for now, gotta take the kids outside to run off some of this crazy energy they have.......
