It’s been really crazy and out there few months for me and my family. We are finally trying to find a new balance and fit a schedule that works for us. Its been hard but for the most part, everything seems to be going well.

I and my husband celebrated 10 years together. My goodness…It doesn’t really feel like 10 years. To me, it feels like I’ve known him all of my life. In relationships, this can go from good to bad to downright horrid to extremely awesome. Life in a marriage can go through its own crazed emotions and pitfalls. But just as long as you have trust, communication, and honesty, then really nothing can stop your relationship but you and your partner.

We also celebrated two birthdays this holiday season. My daughter Sophia (October 21st) turned six and my first born son Tito (November 17th) turned eight. Looking at them now I feel like time just flew by. One minute I’m wrapping them in their hospital blankets, the next thing I know they are all headbanging and singing to Fozzy’s “Judas”!

Things at times do seem to be bleak for me and my family. Since my husband’s job ended we’ve both been actively looking for work. The holidays are around the corner, but we both are trying to stay positive and keep motivated that we will find something. Also, my poetry book is due in December and I had hope that I would be able to pay for some promotional services for my book launch, but it doesn’t look like that will happen due to my bills and no income coming into the house at the moment…

“When life gives you lemons, just make a kick-ass lemonade…”

This is all I can do with any of my life situations I’m in. Good or bad, I just have to work with what I have. Eventually, after everything is said and done…I and my family always come out on top…
