Flash back 2010

2010 Starts with...
...hope, my husband gets employed doing something he loves to do, Teach, and he calls it a blessing at the time, I called it a Curse. Now you must be asking, why? how ungrateful! well, a lot people did tell me I was ungrateful, even my husband still does.
Here is why!...
  1. This job required Brad to travel 80% out of the year, he left almost every sunday afternoon or morning and would come back every friday night or even saturday, in the 4th or 5th week he didn’t have to travel, but still needed to go to the office, leaving before 7am and back around 8pm, while he was gone I was left at home with a 18 month going on terrible twos, and a 3 year old,
  2. My beautiful Bella was such a hard baby, her curls really spices up her personality. I had to deal with her climbing out of the crib and not sleeping at night, (it took me over 3 months of trying every single technique out there to make her sleep on her own and staying on her bed/crib ( it took Gabi only 2 days!)),
  3. I also had to deal with potty training her, (if I didn't place her on the potty she would get her duty diaper and spread all over carpet, walls, sheets, etc. And trust me I did try everything I could to keep her diapers on. I wasn’t ready this time, but she didn’t give me a choice).
  4. I was so scared of sleeping alone, sleeping in a town home is so hard because of the noises next door, but besides that, the week Brad started traveling a Cop came to my house and told me that the was a lot of house burglary going on on the area, he checked my door and showed me that someone did try to break it in but was unsuccessful, but to be careful. My alarm did go off a couple different nights in the year and I did call the police in the middle of the night.
  5. My relationship with Brad wasn't the best anymore, it didn’t help that he was traveling all the time, staying in nice hotels, hanging out every night, eating out of restaurants, having different religious views, going to school every saturday for 4 hrs, and somehow finding time for band practice every week, and besides all that he was only making a little more than half of the salary that he was making before.

I called it a curse because I complained of the year past, it wasn't nearly as heard as this one, but somehow I survived, and the job got a little better, by the end of the year he didn’t have to travel as much, it was more like 3 weeks out of the month and a week home.

Now to the good memories...

2009 flash back.

2009 started by
  • My Dad staying hospitalized while they were in a middle of finding apartments and moving, I was had to deal with looking for a place for them to live, drive my mom back and forth to the hospital etc; 
  • My 2 year old (at the time) nephew Gil fall of a second story window to a concrete floor ( miraculous he was sent home after a few weeks with no scars);
  • My brother was taken to prison (after failing to sign left for longer than 3 seconds! long story)
  • I end in the hospital (hyperventilating, TOO much stress for me to handle I guess!)
  • And to add the cherry on top, my husband was unemployed for 6 month

This is my Bella she is so mischievous, Vaseline is the very worse thing to clean off ! And that wasn't the first time it happened!
on the side note its great for eczema, she had really bad eczema and after spending a lot of money in prescription and other expensive creams I found out that vaseline will smooth a rough skin in only a night! 

Once again getting messy!
