Hello everyone... not much to update you all on really. Other than I am kinda nervous to drive to work tomorrow if it is supposed to be icy. But I guess we will see.

I'm still working at Dollar Tree. HA... imagine that. This is the longest job I have ever held so in a way I am proud of myself. But in another way I want to do something I love. To be REAL honest, I wanna get married and have babies. But those of you who are close to me already knew that.

Speaking of babies I got to spend the night and all day today with my baby nephew Zach. I know I have lot of nieces and nephews and it may lead you to ask why was seeing Zach so different from my normal family routines? WELL... let me tell you.

You see I have a brother who has had a VERY hard life. Not due to anyone but himself and the choices he made. He has problems with drugs and alcohol but is doing SOOOO good and getting his life back together. We have all seen such positive changes recently. Maybe due to the whole topic of this story and that's his son Zach. Zach was born addicted to drugs. When he was born he was only four pounds and slowly lost weight. Because he was no longer getting any drugs in his system he experienced withdrawls which resulted in him having to be on a morphin drip to help with the pain.... Honestly I didn't really know what to expect. Whether he would live or not... be completely healthy or not. He had trouble eating and had to have a feeding tube and all. It was really sad. As for his mom, I have nothing nice to say so I won't say anything at all.

I keep trying to look at the positive side of this whole thing. I only saw Zach one time in the hospital cause my family wasn't allowed. Thing is, the last couple of days Jessie has let Jacob take him and I have been SOAKING it up! I took some pictures so here they are. He is a healthy baby and I can't wait to spend more precious moments with his sweet spirit!

I'm completely addicted to him and his cute little personality! Oh and he is ALMOST five months!

So here I am! I know it's been awhile but here I am! Things have been crazy in my life so forgive me. (not that anyone really reads this anyway) I am concluding it's mostly for me. Just to vent and stuff. Well WILL be anyway!

I am still working at Dollar Tree. WOO HOO. We have been pretty slow lately but that's definately ok with me!

I got to go snowboarding for the first time THIS season today and it was a lot of fun. I went with Brandon and his Uncle and his family. I haven't been to SkiBowl in a LONG time so it was nice to get to go again. I ended up getting really cold because I being the nice girlfriend I am decided to help Brandon. Let's just say he is MUCH better at skiing than snowboarding! Finally something I am a little better than him at!

I also just got my new laptop and I am SO very excited about it! I have been spending probably too much time playing around with it but that comes with it I guess RIGHT?! Well that's about it for now. I will be back another day. But I won't wait so long next time!
