I have been SO busy....

Life needs to just slow down a tad..

The girls are awesome.. beautiful, sweet, stubborn... :) Daniel is good.. I am good.. TIRED! ::)

The store is going great..I am so blessed..

I just started running last week.. I ran 2.5 miles today for the first time in my life.. I walked another 2.5 miles.. I am really getting the hang of it now I think... my breathing is my only issue, I know it will get better though... WHOOT!

We head to Disney this coming weekend.. crap, I need to start packing.. :)

Hello to all~

I know I have been MIA.. I am truly sorry.. Life has me... let's say... BUSY!
The girls are amazing.. Hayley is now walking and Maddy has the mind of a 10 year old it seems most days (Lord help me)... Daniel and I now have 2 home businesses (www.prototypeprofessionals.com and www.missmonkeysboutique.com) plus he works fulltime and I am a fulltime stay at home Mom/Work at home Mom.. Whewwwwwwwwwwwwww!

I am opening my new store in 2 weeks. I havent had time to share with you all my dream... well, it is coming true and I have worked REALLY hard to make it all happen.. Many sleepless nights... Months of research about to pay off (I pray). I am opening an Organic & Natural living store.. It is focused mainly Moms & Children. I wnated to have a one stop shop for Mom's & Dad's so they could see everything.. touch it and not have to pay shipping...

I am currenlty the only vendor in NC selling Amber Teething Necklaces. The power of Amber is AMAZING.. I sell Adult Amber Necklaces (for headaches, neck injury), bracelets for babes and adults (helps with Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel). I am really proud to share my discovery with my friends/community... I spent months researching to find a vendor who I trusted and only sells me the TOP grade Amber. We all wear Amber as much as we can it not only stops my headaches.. teething with Hayley is a breeze (shocking I know). Maddy calls hers, "her HAPPY NECKLACE"! Check it out on my site..

11:31 am - Poor Daniel!
My poor Daniel.. so, I know you all must know about the American Airlines crap.. well, Daniel was to fly out on them yesterday from Dallas.. well, his plane was still one time.. oddly enough.. they swithced planes on them last minute.. they said,, "it just passed all of the regulations, etc"... so, on the plane they went.. about 2 hours late, but it was taking off.. well, 30 minutes into the flight the pilot got on and announced.. we have to turn around because the cabin will not pressurize... BUT,... we have to fly around for 2 hours to burn off fuel.. they have some fuel regulation where you cant land with X amount of fuel in the plane.. WTH??? So, they land.. and they say.. everyone stay seated.. we think this will be a quick fix... 1 hour later.. they unload all the passangers.. granted.. it is 1:30am and all of the baggage handlers have gonw home until the am.. Daniel gets off.. pissed of.. then he hears the announcent over the ENTIRE airport.. Due to flight cancelations.. there will be no more avaible open flight for "3 DAYS".. OMG!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!! So, my sweet amazing babe is driving home from Dallas Texas.. he has been driving all night and is almost in GA now.. my poor love.. he has a big suprise day for me planned tomorrow with 3 of my friends and he doesnt want me to miss it.. I told him to just cancel it.. but nooooooooooooooo!! he is THE most amazing man/person I know.. he is SO unselfish.. SIGH!! I dont know what I did to deserve him, but I thank God for him.. he should be home later tonight.. poor thing.. no sleep.. no clean clothes...

Off to call and check on him!

08:08 pm - My sweet Brutus!
Photobucket
Photobucket

This morning Daniel and I sat down with Maddy.. and explained to her that Brutus was very sick and that he may not be coming back home today.. It was beyond heart wrenching.. she said, "I love you Brutus... Good bye"... I sobbed.. and sobbed.. Then I went to CVS to have his ultrasound and to meet with Dr. LeGrange. She and her staff are BEYOND amazing and I can not say enough praise about them all.. I am SO thankful that she is the Dr that we met with today... and her assistant... they both are the most amazing people..

Well, the reason my sweet Brutus was so sick is because he had stomach cancer and had a very large mass as well.. His stomach lining was so abnormally large, the Dr told me she had never seen this before.. we talked.. about options.. what she thought I should do.. and there were no options.. he was very ill... he held on for a long time... for us... and I think he would keep holding on as long as he could.. but it just wasnt fair to him... he was in bad shape and would get in much worse shape very quickly...

Today, I lost yet another part of my soul... My sweet angel does not have to suffer anymore.. This all happened so fast and it is so damn hard to say goodbye to my dear friend/child who has been my shadow for 12 years.. I thank God for bringing him into my life... even if it was for a little while.. I know he was not mine to keep... I loved him enough today to let him go.. but I wont lie and say that I didnt think about how could we fight this? We couldnt... the battle was already lost... I am at peace with my decision.. as hard as it was... I was with him to the bitter end.. I know he is now with Chinno in Heaven.. no longer in pain.. he was truly an amazing soul...

RIP my sweet baby.. I love you so much! You will never know how much you will be missed!

Sir Brutus Newton
