Goodbye 2009....

Wow, what a year, what a year!!!!!

This year my baby turned ten, my baby boy became a teenager, my oldest is in his senior year in high school! ugh it's too much, where did the time go!

Overall I can say it was a pretty good year!

I moved into a nice house, in a GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD! It's bliss!

I didn't want to go into the new year without sharing some pics ....
so enjoy!
As usual , she was typical jaree! She asks for a billion things, get them all, and zooms in and one thing. This year, it was her ipod NANO! oh and the i-dog, but that is just because it goes to the ipod. She asked for some games for her nintendo dsi, she got 5! Disney Friends, My Baby Girl First Steps, World of Zoo, Two Guitar Hero games, she got the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery, and some Moxie Girls (the new bratz)! And it's been all about the ipod! LOL She does play her games though! So I guess I can't complain tooooo much! LOL

As for Jariel he loved his laptop, even if he does look dead!

Bee got money, he was goooood! LOL

My babies are getting big yall!

and I am crying.

Peace, love and hair grease in 2010!

I hate feeling this way......

Some of you know that I suffer from Depression! I was diagnosed in the 8th grade with clinical depression. It was a scary time because I didn't know what was wrong with me. I would have uncontrollable crying spells, days where I didn't want to get out of the bed, labored breathing, aching bones, it was just crazy! So crazy I had to be hospitalized and medicated. That is a time in my life I try to forget, but It has made me a stronger person!

The holidays are happy and sad for me all at the same time. I don't know why? yesterday was one of those days! Where I cried my eyes out, for no apparent reason! I haven't had any bouts this year with depression and felt I was on a roll! But then bang!

I have learned so many ways to cope with it! I have not been medicated since I was 14 years old. I learned to pray! and pray hard!!!!!

Today I am feeling less anxious! I don't feel that weight on my chest!
It comes it goes......
I am thankful to God Almighty that it was a quick bout!

I have been laid up for days because of it!
I am so thankful to have such a supportive family!

i am the the only that has it in my family or maybe I should say I am the only one who was diagnosed with it!

I think my brother suffers from it too!

When I was young I used to question Why me????

But, I think having this has made me a better person!
A stronger person...
It definitely made me closer to God!

I am so nervous. My dad came over last night and told me they found a suspicious mass on his lung! I am beyond nervous. I love my daddy sooooooooooooo much! and No I am not claiming anything, but it just choked me up! He goes to the doctor on tomorrow, so I am asking for your prayers please! My mom was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in 2005 and that BLEW ME!!!!! That was a very hard time for us, but thank God my mom is Cancer free now! I guess one of the reasons I am kind of scared is because my uncle Marion passed away 2 years ago from Lung Cancer! So it just makes me a little weary!
I had my GOOD CRY! and I am done! I am going to be strong for my parents!
I will keep you posted as soon as I hear something!

Having a mommy moment......

When I look at Christmases over the past, I notice a lot has changed. No more midnight runs to Toys R us, trying to find that special toy, it just seems surreal my kids are growing up! Even my 10 year old is not asking for a whole lot of toys! It kinda makes me sad. Now my oldest got toys all the way up into he was 13 years old, then he started asking for the high tech stuff.....

It's sad to think I don't have any babies anymore! I love the hustle and bustle of Christmas. I love shopping! My mom said I should be glad I don't have to get all those toys but it makes me sad! Now this was Jaree's Christmas in 2006. I KNOW RIDICULOUS!!!!!!

She wanted them damn talking bratz twins. I had to go to 6 different toys r us until I found it!!!!!!

Click here for Christmas 2007: Jaree's Christmas, you will see it was just slightly smaller! Very slight! LOL

Then Christmas 2008 Considerably less toys more games and gadgets, same this year!!!! I just want to cry!!!!!!!

I hate to see my kids grow up! I mean I hate it!!!!!!

When I see other parents buying their kids toys and dolls and hot wheels cars, and nerf guns, racing tracks, it makes me miss those days!!!!

I don't know call me crazy! But it just makes me sad!!!!!!!!

You can click on the pics to make them bigger!

Does anyone else with older kids feel this way????? Or is it just me?

I am about to go cry now, until next time!!!
