One year ago today

We found out our lives were never going to be the same again. And thank God. We were in Chicago to visit my sister and friends when I woke up early Friday 11.5.04 to pee. But this was no ordinary pee. This was THE pee that told us little J was on his way.

It was the best weekend. We were on vacation, we found out we were having a baby and it was our 5 year dating-anniversary. Life couldn't get better.

November 5th will always be a very important day to me. But, I can't help being a little depressed today. We normally celebrate our anniversary by going away but because of dietary reasons we were forced to stay home. We couldn't even go out to eat or order a pizza. We did have our fun moments today but over all it was pretty darn stressful. The house is torn apart, literally, because of an all-important TV. And when projects like this go on here, things don't always go smoothly. Incase you haven't noticed, we're not very lucky. The most random shit seems to happen just to kick us when were down. So things break, endless curse words are said and buttons are pushed. Plus I'm still running on no sleep, no food but enough worry to keep me awake for days which makes me one big bitch.

Not quite what I envisioned for this day but surprisingly I wouldn't have it any other way. I love this messed up family of mine.

Happy Anniversary! It's not always like the movies, but it's LIFE, it's real, it's ours.....
Here's hoping that things start getting better little by little, that you GET SOME SLEEP SOON! and that you soon get to eat a plate of what you're most missing....

Good luck!

Very sweet story. You might not get all that you want this anniversary but there is hope for the next one! J will be much more familiar with solid foods and you'll get back to celebrating with good eats.

btw, your personal favorite curse word string is also one of mine. Big surprise!

Happy Anniversary!!! Wish it would have been better food wise. Most things do kick you while you are down. Least it does us.

I remember crying on the couch (after three hours of LB screaming) "will we EVER GO OUT FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY AGAIN?"

You will. I promise. And you'll look at this year and think, "How did we do it?" and you just do. Because that's who you are. Amazing and strong.

Happy Anniversary (late) !!
