I've decided people should bring back the Love Note. I am a big fan of writing my feeling down, or typing them I should say... and I think most women are in agreement that it's easier to get things down than to say them outloud sometimes. You can tell someone you love them all day long, but to see words written, just for you, that share those emotions, is a great feeling. I think for me and some other women I know, the act of saying things outloud is sometimes intimidating. I know in my past, it was almost impossible for me to bring up any subject, have an opinion on any particular thing, without it being slammed down or turned around in a different way. So I became silent and it was just easier not to share anything. Now I have all these feelings to share and sometimes it's physically hard for me to get them out. I don't know if I'm scared of a reaction or non reaction, or if I'm scared that I'm going to not be able to get out my true feelings so that the other person understands them in the way I want them to. Whatever it is, it's getting better, but I still think the good ol' fashioned Love Note is romantic and sweet. Long live Love Notes... everyone should go send one to someone they love, even if it's just to your best friend! Everyone needs romantic gestures, it just makes you feel good!

So I really don't have anything fabulous to blog about but since I'm at work, avoiding work, I'll think of something. Let's start with the weekend. Friday night my sweet guy showed up after work to spend the evening with me. We ended up at a down home cookin' resturaunt that had great apple pie. After eating dinner and even dessert (which I never order) we ended up with our jaws on the floor at the waitress's insistance that they did not accept plastic of any kind. Seriously? What year is this? So we ended up leaving on trust. I guess there are other people who live in the Land Of The Golden Rule besides just me. I love that.
Saturday I worked. Then went to watch the Pats play at Frankies with Chris, Heather, his family and some other great friends. I drank too much, partied too hard and had a really great time.
Sunday I spent the afternoon with Lisa at the movie theater. Then I went home and did a few home things until the boys finally arrived. I missed them this weekend.
I'm still searching for an at home daycare for Ryan. I have a few people to interview on Wednesday and Thursday. I really wish this would just go away and fix itself.

Sweet Baby Ryan. That's what we called him for the first year of his life. He was so quiet, so calm, so easy peasy. Just a sweeeeeet giant sized baby. (9 lbs at birth, 2 feet tall). Oh my how things change. Ryan is in the process of getting kicked out of daycare. Kicked out. Seriously. Like expelled... for being MEAN. He's a biter and a scratcher and a pincher. He does it out of meanness and frusteration. Ryan still isn't talking much, so it is believed that his speech delay is causing his Chuck Norris Complex to get a little out of control. I'm in the process of finding a home care place for him or something of that sort. I'm also waiting for Babies Can't Wait to get off their tales and get our evaluation process started so we can begin therapy for him. Ryan is about 6 months behind developmentally and it's getting to the point where he needs to catch up, or he's going to slip further and further. These are important milestones we're missing out on here. And no, I'm not judging from Andrew's performance as a toddler, because let's face it, that was out of control advanced. I'm evaluating him based on the general milestones all kids his age should be reaching. So I'll let BCW see what they think and hopefully we'll get him some help soon. I don't want to be in the dark on all this and be that parent that thinks her kid is perfect when really he should be wearing a helmet.
Suprisingly enough, I'm not stressing!!! I'm praying alot. A LOT. I am carrying my crosses and I haven't had to stop to take a breath yet, so as long as I can keep up I'll be A-OK.

I did my Keith Urban Review below and I have spent the evening going thru my favorite Brad Paisley songs, so I'm posting one just to share more (country) music that I love. Every girl wants to be loved like that.
She's Everything -
Well December has come and gone. Please wait as I wipe my brow. December held 3 birthday parties for Andrew, shopping more than necessary, a handful of Holiday events, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and finally New Years eve... It was busy to say the least.
It was also so incrediably wonderful in a magical way. I have learned so much about my self this past month. I've learned that my heart isn't as broken as I thought it was. I can be a woman seperate from being a mom and there are amazing guys out there that doesn't mind me being both. I learned that love isn't something that's only out there for everyone but me. I learned that sometimes, even if things seem to be happening so fast, it's worth just letting go of fear and letting things happen. Wow, have things happened!
I'll load pics and get Christmas posted about. Right now it's New Years Evening and I'm exhausted from last night, so I'm going to bed. Sorry I haven't updated much, I've been busy falling head over heels!
