Seriously, we're still alive...

I feel badly that I've been neglecting the blog these past weeks. First it started with my being horribly sick. Fortunately that's finally coming to an end, and thankfully, somehow, I was the only one who caught it.
Lately it's more just things happening here at home. Nothing too new really, and nothing with V or the immediate family, but with the extended family we share our property with.
Sadly, as much as I would love to vent and ask for some advice, I just can't bring myself to write about it. It's something I never though we would have to deal with and something that throws me completely out of my element.
My biggest priority of late has been to keep the kids from being affected by it and that will continue to be my struggle until we somehow get this resolved. Ultimately if we can't put an end to this it will mean that we are going to have to leave the home where Carmen spent his childhood behind, possibly for good.
The "how" is our conscern with very little, other than unemployment income. Needless to say it's been a pretty stressful time. This has been brewing for a while and sadly we were wrong in the hopes that those with the power would put things right.
I know I'm ranting about a subject I refuse to even write about.. thanks for putting up with it...

As for us, I honestly haven't even uploaded our Christmas or New Years pictures yet. I've been slacking.
I do plan to do it soon and when I do I promise I'll share. Thanks for staying with us and hopefully it will all be worth the wait. We did manage to have a happy holiday and the kids had a blast!
God Bless.


  1. Hope something works out for you and it all gets resolved. Whatever it is, it sounds stressful. Take care

  2. I'm glad your feeling better, but have this new crap to deal with. Family stuff is the worst, and I hope it gets resolved soon.

  3. And do I ever know about extended family issues!Situation may be slightly different but in the end,the stress it puts on day to day living acan be more then a little over whelming.Hang tight Stand firm and things will work out.they always seem to,don't they.Praying for resolution.

    thank you for your words of encouragement.More then disgusted with my own family stuff.

  4. We used to live on Merritt Island. Tomas was born at Winnie and lived in their NICU and then spent way too much time at Arnold before we moved. We have some friends who live in Geneva. Such a small, small world. The only town we're visiting without a close children's hospital is Punta Gorda. Tomas and your son look like they share a lot of the same issues. I am going to try to read back on your blog. I hope whatever issues you're dealing with right now work out. Geneva is so beautiful, I do hope you can stay.
