and I've missed it!
Everything is good. Dh is amazing. Ds is more precious to me than anything in this world. My family is great and healthy! I'm doing well...still dieting and staying busy. Dh's mom is officially "outta there"! We are so happy. We're going to see her a few days after Christmas and are looking forward to a Tom-free visit! Yay! He's just never going to get a clue that he's not perfect!
Dh and his mom are talking more now than ever. Yes, he's her financial advisor and she's needing some investment help thru all of this, but at least they're talking. They used to go for weeks at a time w/o even speaking or emailing or anything! WOW! That's hard for me to understand. I talk and see my parents every single day. They are our best friends! MIL is just different: been thru some tough things in her life, very independant, and different in her political/religious beliefs than us. But, we feel our relationship w/ her is on the mends...b/c she's getting divorced! She seems very upbeat about this. We're still in shock! Oh, and we get her dog - which was dh's dog in high school. Sadie is great but we don't have a fence for her. She's an outside dog...we have an inside dog that is trained perfectly. Still debating if we should pay $2000+ for a fence or train her. As of right now...we're going to try to train her. Still trying to pay off the last of our credit card debt. It should be gone by March...still in awe of that...so we can build a fence in the Spring.
My brother and SIL have their house on the market in KY! They are moving home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are so happy!!!! They have 2 boys, so ds will LOVE growing up w/ his cousins. They're going to live w/ my parents for 6 months or so to get back on their feet financially (major credit card debt!) and will then buy a house no more than 1 mile from here. Life is great! My brother and I have drifted apart since he's been away for 8 years. We love eachother and get along...but we're just more distant now. SIL and I get along great and talk 5 times a week at least! I can't wait til they get here...in February! Yay for them! Yay for us!
Okay, gotta hop in the shower. Going to lunch w/ a friend. Yes, I'll eat right. A salad w/ shredded chicken (my fave!). Ds is napping so the shower time-slot is wide open!!!!
