E-Lo Travels

Friday morning I'm leaving on a jet plane. Well, Ryan and I are leaving. We're going to Seattle for a wedding and to visit friends - and we're leaving the kids home. What a strange sensation that will be. I've literally had this baby close to me every single day since February 2010. And now I'm traveling across the country. I feel like puking. The liberation makes me want to drink. A lot. Hopefully I won't be sick to my stomach the whole time because right now I feel a cold sweat coming on. I'm addicted to my children. Eeegh.

Lyric is also addicted to us. She gets a little tearful about us leaving, which sucks.

I'm looking at this as a well deserved break, and a chance for us to just be a married couple, and not just mom and dad. We need that. And I need a break. Did I mention that I deserve a break?

A year in hiding...

Well, almost. Give or take a month. But still.

So, I gave birth to another girl, Fallon Ann, almost 8 months ago. It was quick and painful, but I got this chubby little bundle out of it. She's awesome. Lyric is a great big sister, and we're a happy family of 4. Fallon is now crawling and has been working on her teeth since she was 2 months.

On April 15, I lost my job of almost 5 years. I strongly feel that had I not been pregnant and had a baby, I'd still have that job. I liked my job for the most part, but since being away from it I've had nightmares that I've had to go back. So... yeah, that tells me something about just how much I really liked my job.

So I'm rediscovering myself as a SAHM who collects unemployment. If only unemployment could last say, 5 years, cause that would be great.
