My Girl Blogs is my way to tell my story. I was a daddy’s girl growing up and my dad sang ‘My girl’ by the Temptations to me all the time. I now sing it to my daughter (and sometimes my son, only saying my guy). I did get mad at my dad growing up as he was an alcoholic and not always the nicest person. I now think he was manic-depressive also. He passed away in 2004 from a brain tumor. Sometimes I miss him so much it hurts and sometimes I wonder if we’d still be talking (a common theme in our family). I am very close to my mom, don’t know how she put up with him as long as she did. I don’t know what I’d do without her. She is remarried now but we live only a few miles apart.
I have been married for 15 years. We have had our struggles but he is my best friend and I love him very much. He makes me laugh and I love to hear his laugh too. Being silly together is the best.
I also have 13-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. My son was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 6. He is still on daily medication but is doing well with it both in school and socially. My daughter was my healthy, happy child until shortly after Christmas 2013 when it seems like she was getting one infection after another. She lost over 12 lbs and I didn’t realize it since she was getting taller (thought she was just thinning out during her growth spurt). After multiple trips to her doctor, we finally insisted on blood work. On Monday April 21, 2014 she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She is doing well but this is life-changing and will always be a part of her life now.
This blog is a way for me to deal with these things, talk, share, grow.
I work full-time too. I am hoping to do weekly updates at the least, hopefully more. I am also a christian and believe that prayers and following Jesus make life more livable.
