I need a tissue, I have daddy issues.....

A letter to my father......


I'm not really sure how to start this letter. I guess I'll just jump right in. It's been almost 10 years since I last had to write one of these letters and to be honest the fact that I've had to write to you about the same thing more than once is in fact a huge statement in and of itself.

I can not be your daughter anymore. I have no desire to be stepped on by any man in my life let alone my own father. From this point on I would prefer if you stayed out of my life. The flippant way you have of dealing with me and the way you take me for granted are crap and I refuse to be treated this way by you any longer.

You are my father, and I am your ONLY CHILD. I am the mother of your ONLY GRANDCHILDREN. How you could ever go over a month without contacting us is beyond me. I lived an hour and 30 minutes away and you couldn't be bothered to pick up a phone and wish me and the kids a happy Thanksgiving. In the last 4 weeks I have moved and bought a new house and no word from you, no offer to help, no request for a forwarding address.

I asked you if you wanted to participate in a gift for the kids for Christmas, a group gift so that no one set of grands got credit or had to carry the burden. You accepted and when it came time to pay up, you disappeared. I called you and gave you a chance to back out, I asked if you still wanted to be in on it and if not then we could figure something else out, you assured me that you were still in it, that you would get me the money soon. You called me TODAY on Christmas day to tell me that now you can't be in on it.....TODAY.

So here's where I say goodbye.

Don't call me any more. Don't bother my husband or my children. Don't ask your family about me. Leave me alone.

Thank you for your time,
Your Daughter

Blog VD strikes again....

I done got tagged! My new friend over at Copper's Fox has tagged me with a MeMe (otherwise known as Blog VD), and now I get to infect others.....Bwahahahahaaa

Before I get started with that though, a quick update on my move.....So far so good! We have the whole house 75% unpacked and have full use of the kitchen, both baths and all 3 bed rooms. I may not get my Christmas tree up this year but I will get some decorations up if it kills me!

okay now onto the VD.....

Here are the rules:

• Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules in your post.

• Share seven random/weird facts about yourself.

• Tag seven random people and link to their blogs.

• Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment in their blog.

SO.... HERE WE GO...

1. I have spent at least one night in 30 of the 50 states, I have attended school in 6 states.

2. I am swedish on my mother's side but our relatives immigrated from Cuba to the U.S. not Sweden.

3. My kids are only 11 months and 16 days apart (take that, Brittany Spears!! Ha ha) but people always swear that they are twins.

4. My mother is my best friend and I talk to her about everything....I mean EVERYTHING!

5. I have at least 3 best friends I have never met in person.

6. I have a Buddha collection.

7. I have an irrational fear of food with bones in it (ie: chicken, fish, pork chops, t-bone steaks).

Okay so who do I tag....hmmm...let's see......


Have fun ladies!!

Happy Birthday Winnie!

~ 4 months old~

My puppy Winifred turned 1 yesterday.

Is it still okay to call her a puppy?

She's such a funny little dog, I adore her when she's not trying to get me to kill her.

I just wish she and her "brother" Minot would get along better, she keeps trying to bite his balls and he hates her for it (as well he should). We decided to get her 'fixed' first, but now I'm wishing we had done Minot first.

She is constantly drinking water, you'd think she lives in the desert. Oh and she burps! Actual burps! In your face too, she doesn't mind at all....

She loves to chew and she loves to cuddle, she likes to run and she digs meeting new people.

Winnie is awesome and now she's 1......

Happy Birthday Winnie!!!

~ 1 year old~

Do you Believe??

My kids have finally gotten to the age where they know that Santa isn't real.....they still believe in the magic of Christmas they just don't buy the one guy theory.

I LOVE Christmas and all things Christmas so in our house I try to keep the spirit of the season, the "magic", going. We bake cookies and give them to neighbors, we donate money, time and items to various charities.....we do whatever we can to support the season of giving.

And of course we are writing our letters to Santa.....

Imagine how thrilled I was to find out that Macy's is collecting letters in a special Santa letterbox at all Macy’s stores. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They have a Believe O Meter to measure the amount of letter they receive and special displays in the stores.

Make-A-Wish is a wonderful foundation and I am so happy to be able to do something to support them!! So if you have some time please sit down with someone you love and write a couple of letters to Santa, and be sure to check out the banner I'm putting in the side bar through Christmas.....Thanks guys! And Merry Christmas to you all!!
