Birthday or Birthdays?

We survived the coldest I’ve ever seen in Chicago. We pretty much just stayed inside and did nothing outside. It worked. Hi guys. Sorry I haven’t been updating much. A lot has happened.

The twins are having another birthday bash coming up soon. We are going with the construction/fireman theme. That’s what they wanted. I’m fine with that because it’s easy to find things for it. The invitations have all been sent out, the party treats have been ordered and the cake is going to be amazing. I’m going with a non-vegan cake for everyone to enjoy. The boys will be getting a smaller version all vegan. I’m pretty happy with how it’s all coming together. I swear it gets easier every year. I am going to go through this whole thing with a positive attitude and do my best to keep my mind off the fact that Talon can’t be with us. I still am not ready to talk about his passing. You know, maybe I never will be. Either way I’m going to do my best to focus on the boys and how much I love them. My daughter has been helping too. She is getting so big. It’s unreal how much my life has changed.

We did get into a truck accident last week. It looked worse than it was. I want to thank the makers of the Cadillac Escalade for making your vehicles so safe. My kids and I were hit twice and we all came away with small bruises. It was scary af. I almost had a heart attack. Okay not really but it felt like my heart was coming out of my chest. It was a reason to go get a new Escalade. Thank you State Farm Insurance. You guys are also the best. Made it a lot easier to deal with things. I have no idea what the rule is about pulling car seats out of an accident and re-using them in the new vehicle but I bought all new ones. I did not want to deal with it. I thank God we are all okay and no one else involved was seriously injured.

I just uploaded a lot of photos to our Family Facebook page. Including the photos from the accident. Well I should say of the truck after the accident. It was pretty crunched up, completely totaled. The new one is better and a lot stronger. I love it. I’m already having fun playing with all of the bells and whistles.

Let me think, the boys school is going okay. They could be more focused but it has a lot of play time and they can’t help themselves. The pre-pre-k school ends at the end of April so that will be fun. I think putting them into a school environment early was the best move. They need to learn how to share and how to follow instructions better. We are working on that. Things are going to get easier in the fall I’m sure.

Jesse and I are still dating. She’s pretty awesome. We are still not serious but we are both monogamous. We see each other about twice a week. It’s nice hanging out with an adult some times. My kids enjoy her. She loves to play with them while I cook and then after supper we sit and visit while the kids go crazy with their toys.

Guys I’ve settled into the good part of my life. It’s quiet, it’s no drama. Things couldn’t be better. I’m so busy taking care of my kids I don’t think to update this as often. I will try to do a much better job. I hope you all are doing well. I hope this is one of the few places online you can go to avoid all of the political crappola happening other places. I don’t support Trump at all but I also don’t feel the need to bellyache over him much. He is who he is and I don’t like him. That’s all I know.

It’s Sunday. Enjoy your last weekend day! Love ya’ll!
