I’m Still Here

I had planned on sitting down tonight and posting a nice lengthy catch-up entry. But it seems I get distracted so often these days that now all I can say is that.. a catch-up entry is coming. I’m still alive. November was a busy month. More soon. I promise.

Slacking Off

I’m actually at a loss for words today. It’s kind of hard to come up with new and interesting things to type about. Especially when things are pretty much routine and uneventful around here.

We did take the twins to Sears for their 3 month photo session. They did well for the most part. I can tell that they are going to be real home-bodies. They are never very comfortable anywhere else. Last Sunday we were all at my cousins for my niece’s birthday party. Neither Blake or Brady were comfortable with anyone holding them but myself, my mom or my aunt. Blake pretty much had this constant whine about him. Once we were home and they were out of their carseats, they were nothing but all smiles. They just like being at home, where it’s familiar. It was the same today.

I can’t believe I’m slacking on this NaBloPoMo stuff. Most of the time it’s just getting the time to sit down at the computer. Last night after my mom and I put the twins down for the night and then she went home, I had planned on catching up here. I ended up falling asleep on the couch. I woke up and it was almost 3am and I could hear one of the babies on the baby monitor so I had to head upstairs to tend to him and go to bed.

I really do love this quiet time of mine. It’s a few hours of the 24 hour day that I get to just be me. Ahh.~

NaBloPoMo

It’s that time of year again. I’m hoping to succeed this year. It’s National Blog Posting Month. I’ve joined the NaBloPoMo Community and vow to at least try and post every day this month. Last year I posted twice the entire month of November. One would think I did that to make a mockery of NaBloPoMo, but in all honesty, I was just a bad blogger. Now, I don’t really have a life outside if diaper changes and breastfeedings, so to sit at my computer each night and peek into the lives of other bloggers is like my own little vacation each night.

An End to Fumblings

As promised in my old blog, I’ll explain what happened and why I had to put an end to my Fumblings blog. It is unfortunate, but I had to do it.

Many years ago I met a guy. We went on a couple dates but ultimately remained just friends. We’ve always had this spiritual connection, it’s so hard to explain. My mom knows what I mean. It’s as if you’ve always known the person. As if you were connected somehow from another place. another time. another life. We’ve remained in contact with one another for about 11 years. He’s always been someone I respected and admired. He was polite, and soft hearted.

The past 6 months he hadn’t been returning my emails. I was beginning to worry. I sent him a couple text messages to his cell phone. Turns out they weren’t going to him anymore and his number wasn’t his number anymore. So anyway I was dumb founded that we’d completely lost touch for the first time in 11 years. I knew he had moved out to Arizona, so I looked him up. found his home number.

The last we chatted, he was getting engaged, so I wasn’t surprised to hear a female voice answer. Found out my friend was in Iraq, sub-contracted through the military. He’s a computer programmer. Her and I chatted for about 10 minutes. She seemed very sweet. Told her about the twins. She asked me to email her pictures. I told her "C" and I had been friends for a long time. She said she’d tell him I called.

Later that evening we get a "private call" some woman asking to speak to Dave. Dave said it was some chick asking that I not call her husband anymore. That she’s uncomfortable knowing that he and I used to date. It was just all so weird to me. Something wasn’t sitting right with me. Dave and I didn’t bring it up much with each other. I had emailed "C" after talking to her, telling him I found out he was in Iraq and that I hope he’s well.

Two days later I recieve a reply email back from him. Telling me to stay out of his life. He called me a disgusting pig and an embarassment to all women. That he only kept in touch all these years because he felt sorry for me, that he never really liked me. I was shocked and appauled!! I know he had to have BCC’d his wife to show her he sent it to me. I don’t know what happened. Don’t know when or how I became this negative person in his life. What happened to our friendship all these years? This woman he married changed him. He’s not the same person. not the same soul. I told Dave, my husband, how upset I was. I was hurt. He said I should just let him go. Regardless if he sent that for his wife’s eyes to see, it doesn’t change the fact that he hit that send button and said those horrible things.

Then the next day my MySpace, my photo albums, and my blog are all getting horrible comments and messages. I know it’s his wife acting like a child. She obtained the links through my email signature at the bottom of my original email to "C"  I told Dave what she was doing. Originally we were going to call her and tell her that if she leaves us alone, we’ll leave her alone. But then we thought why bother. So I’m letting him go. Who knows, maybe 5, 10 years from now, he will turn back into the "C" I knew and apologize. It’s hard losing a friend like that. Someone who I thought was very special and was a special part of my life. Those that knew of him (mom, my other friends) are all shocked.

So this is the new place. If you’re a regular reader, remember to change your blogroll with my new blag name and address. I still haven’t decorated the place. That’ll come in time. Thanks for following me over.
