Role models...

It's Tuesday already...I'm really struggling getting back into my schedule because we have had no electricity since Sunday at about 2 p.m. REMC says it might be Wednesday before they can get to us...do you know how hard it is to get yourself and a 2 year old ready in the morning in total darkness? Let's just say that if you see me today or tomorrow, try to hold back the scream :)!!

This weekend was REALLY, REALLY great and I feel like I'm finally getting back to the "old me." The me who isn't down in the dumps, hurt, and broken. I have to pull my self up from the darkness for Max! I was watching Max this weekend with my dad and my brothers, Cole and Clay. I have been really worried about Max not having a positive "father figure" in his life, but then this weekend I realized that he has so many positive male role models in his life!! He is soooo lucky - he has my dad (who thinks the world revolves around Max and would do anything for him!), he has Uncle Cole (who is the protective Uncle, that tries to guide Max in the right direction and would never let him down), and he has Uncle Clay (who brings excitment to Max's life...who does all the "fun" stuff with him and never leaves him out of anything). I can't focus on what Max is missing out on, I have to focus on all that he is experiencing...and he is one lucky little man:)!



Ok, so I mentioned that my weekend was really great - we went camping at Boggs and had so much fun:) It was the last weekend before Regina Wagler and Stoogie (Jeremy Graber) get married, so we had a little party (ok, a big party) and let me just say...I'm WAY too old to be staying up till 4 a.m. Here are a few pictures from the weekend!

Max and Taylon Graber had a blast: fishing, jumping around on Doink's air mattress, and just being silly!
Me and Alyssa went on a sweet tea run to McDonalds...I think the workers thought we were really weird ordering like 10 sweet teas!!
Clay and I are enjoying karaoke night - and of course a golf cart ride on the harley, look at our peace signs...like sister, like brother:)!! ha ha

You just need to do what your heart tells you to do and what is best for you and your little man Max..You need to make everyday special for Max because they grow up to fast...If you ever need to talk just call or email...
