I'm still here lovelies! Life has just been a whirlwind of everything hitting at once. I don't even know where to begin with this post considering it has been such a long time since I've posted. Well, to begin the apartment is absolutely fantastic! Ally is loving having her own room and for the most part is keeping up with cleaning it. We finally have everything unpacked and I owe you guys pictures. I just feel like there isn't much to show at the moment so I may hold off.
Ally is doing great in school. Her areas of struggle are advanced for her so for right now she is right on target. I can't believe she's about to be wrapping up her first year of school. She has her moments but she is definitely my sweetheart. She has really enjoyed having her own personal space.
Work continues to exhaust me. I pulled 63 hours last week and this week I'll wrap up around 55 to 60. It sucks having to work so much but I have a great support system. I am so grateful for my friends and family. They're ongoing support is truly a blessing.
I have cut my ex-husband out once and for all. I have also cut ties with anyone in contact with him other than my MIL at the moment. I know I've said before that I was done with him but after our last conversation I realized it was the healthiest decision to cut him and his ties off altogether. He would rather sign off his rights to his daughter than put in the actual effort to be there.
This honestly isn't a big deal to me though because I can't even remember the last time he put any effort towards seeing Ally. I refuse to be like Kris and shell out money for him to come see. I feel like if he wants the time with her, he would do what was necessary to be apart of her life. Instead he continues to be a coward.
We have a secret trip planned for Ally this summer and I really hope my days off get approved. This summer is definitely going to be a fun one for Ally!
I am just shy of a month into a new relationship. S definitely shows me everything I thought I had found in R. He was there everyday when I messed up my hip. He has cooked, cleaned, spent time with, and all around been there for me. The sleepovers are fantastic and having my friend be there for me is amazing. I definitely have found happiness and I am loving this bliss.
Today after getting some much needed rest will be a family day. We'll start the day with me surprising everyone with breakfast. Pancakes and Bacon! We're gonna pick up my brother and head out to the Botanical Gardens to get pictures and enjoy a day out of the house. Then it'll be home for S to make dinner. Chicken fried steak! I have been craving it for days and so glad to have a day off so we can actually cook.
Hopefully we'll get Ally to bed early tonight and I'll be able to upload some new pics for you guys! Enjoy a wonderful Saturday lovelies. Time to curl up next to S before Ally comes to wake me up demanding pancakes.
