Hello World.

So I feel a little bit like my world is out of control.  Do you ever feel that way?  For the last five weeks we have been going almost non-stop.  It has been a love/hate thing for me.  I have been the happiest I have been in a long time, but at the same time it seems like sanity is just out of my reach.  Oh well, I guess I will have plenty of time to rest when I am 80.  Bring on the insanity!!
This weekend was Elijah's birthday.  One whole year has gone by.  And what a year it has been.  We threw him a birthday party on Saturday, but I think I ended up getting the best present of all.  I haven't shared a lot about my family yet, but they mean everything to me.  They absolutely ground me.  If I could be immersed in them everyday I couldn't be happier.  Needless to say, living so far away from them has been horrible for me.  But, on Friday night around 10:30 we were sitting on the couch watching a movie with some friends that had come into town for the birthday party.  Then the door bells rings.  Our first reaction is anger, because if whatever jerk is on the other side of that door wakes up the baby, they are in for it.  So, Don-e goes to the door, and I went to the dvd player to pause the movie.  (We never know where the remotes are anymore.  Thanks 'Ligh!)
So anyway, just as I am starting to look up from the entertainment center my Mother walks into my living room.  Yes, my Mom, the one that lives some 2,ooo miles away.  She had found some plane tickets on sale and decided to surprise us!  I know, amazing, right?  And you want to know what the first thing out of my mouth is?  The first words I say to the woman that birthed me, that I hadn't seen since October?  

"Oh, shit."

Classy, huh?  What can I say.  I am awesome.  But, even after that wonderful reunion, we had a great weekend.  She only got to stay until Sunday evening, but we had a fun, relaxing weekend.  She spend way too much money spoiling my child, but he loved it.  His birthday party was almost as tiring as his birth (ha, I kid) but so much fun.  I will share pictures soon.  And, we are flying to Seattle for my cousin's wedding this weekend.  We leave Friday.  But, to all you robbers out there, don't even think about 'stopping by'.  Our friends that live in Fort Hood are coming to stay for the weekend to keep Hero company, and they are bringing their big dogs with them.  The big dogs that spent all last weekend beating up my pitbull.
                        
I leave you with a picture from the birthday party we went to last weekend.

From "The jerk on the other side of the door" who didn't wake up the baby, I have to say, how awesome it was to share Elijah's first birthday. It was such a great thing for me to be able to get to make the "even-tho-it-is-quick" trip to Texas. I had so much fun, and can hardly wait to go back. I miss you guys more than you can know.
