Hi! How is everyone doing? I haven't blogged in a while. It amazes me how much things have changed in the past year. Though it's just after midnight, I can now say that it's been 9 months today since my mom passed.

I don't remember what I've blogged about so some of this might be a repeat. Just about a year ago my mother-in-law moved in. A year ago the daycare was almost finished being built. I won't get into the daycare stuff here but it's been one heck of a year with just that subject alone. Last spring, my oldest daughter had a car accident and miraculously didn't hurt herself or anyone else, thank God. Not long after that my mother went into the hospital for surgery, after several weeks in the hospital, she died a week before my birthday, and 5 days after my oldest graduated high school. All she wanted was for mom to be here for her graduation, it was a bittersweet day when she graduated. My birthday, for the record, sucked. A lot. The year prior all I wanted for my birthday was for my mom to be here. Little did I know it would be the last time I ever saw her again. I didn't take a single picture of her and I together either, I have rarely done that my whole adult life. I have found only 3, and 2 of them are from far away with others in the picture. I won't make that mistake with anyone else. Sadly, on my birthday that last time she was here I had pictures taken with myself and each of my kids and hubby but she was closer to the castle (in a rider thing) and my son was with her while we sat further away. So, I didn't have our pics taken. I'm off on a tangent again. Sorry. So, anyway. My oldest started college in the fall, that made 3 of us in college at the same time. My other two started their last year in middle school and elementary school. Wow!
Then, my oldest announced that she had a girlfriend. Fast forward. Oldest and girlfriend are now living together in an apartment. I was surprised I never got sad and teary and stuff over her moving out. I would just go on another tangent if I started getting into all of that.
So, currently we are moving things around in our house again and doing some major spring cleaning. It feels good to get these things done. I am on a mini break between classes too. I may even take a few days off work during my kid's spring break. I may be seeing a cousin after 20+ years when she comes this way this month. I may even see my brother and his wife, which would be great.
I've been trying to get into all of the specialists my doctor sends me to, as best as I can. Some of them are just irritating me. I don't want to go to a specialist for every little thing. I am going to actually sign up for and go to the pool I found out is by my work, I'm looking forward to that.
Well, enough for now. I hope everyone is well. What is everyone else up to this spring?
