We survived the holidays. This time of year is the worst for me. I can’t help but think about Grandma and Grandpa and the many family holidays we spent together. I often wonder what they’d say if they could see me now.
To add to the stress of the holidays, Louie and I broke up. It’s not something I’d really like to get into. It was my decision, albeit not an easy one. It’s been an adjustment. And despite what other people see, it hurts me too. I just need to be strong for my boys and me.
It’s been a lot to deal with. The boys were sick for 2 weeks with that stomach bug that was going around. 24 hours of vomiting and 14 days of diarrhea. I didn’t get sick, thank goodness, but I was so exhausted. I’ve never done so much laundry in my life.
I never imagined my life here at 25, unmarried, with 2 boys, 1 with special needs. I’m so thankful though. My boys are the light of my life. They make me strive to be a better person. They saved my life in so many ways.
Next week, I start school. I have a few hurdles to get through in the next couple weeks but I know I can get through it.
Have a safe and happy new years. I’ll be glad when 2010 is officially over.
