Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

P8210045

25 years ago, Dad married Mom. She’s not biologically my mother, but she’s the one who saw me through puberty, who took the brunt of my abuse when I was dealing with hormone-induced bipolar.

She took on two children who were not her own. Her family took them on, no questions asked. Even after the birth, and loss, of Joshua, and the birth of Megan, never ONCE did I feel like I was second-best in their family. A child, who had felt abandoned by all that she knew, couldn’t have asked for a better family to be practically adopted into.

I never felt unloved or unwanted. Even through the scream-fests, after, and I’m sure she never knew this, I would cry myself to sleep knowing I was pushing away one person who loved me unconditionally and not knowing how to fix it.

I’m so thankful that the relationships have been rebuilt and that Mom and Dad have never given up on each other, themselves, or their family.

The pic I have used is from when Madi wasn’t even a year old. Mom and Dad had come down, with Daniel and Megan, during a Spring Break, or over the summer. She was either just a few months old, or nearly a year. Either way, this is one of the few photos I have of Mom and Dad together, but the smile on Mom’s face literally brings a tear to my eye, and the look on Madi’s face to Dad just makes me giggle. She’s still known for giving him those looks.

Anyways, Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. Dad, I’m so glad you found someone to love you as you deserve to be loved, someone who’ll push you to your brink, in more ways than one Winking smile, and will make you think, fight, and love. Everyone deserves that. Mom, thank you for taking in two children who were in desperate need of love and care, ones who hadn’t felt it in awhile (at no blame to Dad, so shut it everyone else). You healed two little hearts that didn’t even really know they were hurting until they’d felt that love.

Old picture, yes, but it’s definitely *ruined*

Now, to bring out *why* I’m using this picture. I’m working on trying to budget a savings plan for a new camera, but I need a replacement one like yesterday. My birthday is the 8th, and I’ve already told Mom and Dad that I would love a new camera for Christmas. Well, their budget isn’t big enough for my dream camera, though, so I’m looking at getting something maybe a little smaller, and cheaper.

A Twitter buddy and I were talking about the Ashton Kutcher commercials for the Nikon’s, and I wondered about those. I checked out the Nikon Coolpix S60, because of the awesomeness of the touchscreen but it was way out of the price range too. $300 for a camera is too much. 🙁 Ashton also advertised for the Nikon Coolpix S550, which I like. Something that can fit in my pocket is nice, but I’m leery of tiny. Tiny breaks on me, :lol:.

So, what’s your opinion?

The Death of Me …

it is a’comin’. The killer? Laundry. Lots of it.

I fell out of the habit of doing laundry after I came back from Mom and Dad’s. I’ve got loads upon loads. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate laundry? Yeah, I really hate to do laundry, :relieved:.

But, today, I’m turning over a new leaf. Okay, I’m just feeling motivated to actually do it, :loser:. I don’t get these motivations often, so when I do get them, I take full advantage of them :faint:.

Who’s with me, though, on finding someone to design us something to do the laundry for us? Come on, we’ve got someone to do the vacuuming for us, why not the laundry? Sounds reasonable, right?

Weekly Winners – July 13 – July 19

Also, please visit Sarcastic Mom, aka Lotus because she needs lots of love

Okay, yes, I haven’t done a Weekly Winners post in awhile, but I have good reasons: I’m LAZY 🙂 Well, not anymore. With the new phone, and with the hints of maybe a new camera for Christmas from Mom and Dad (ironic that they’re the one who’s purchased the two previous ones, :lol:), time to get to work on bettering my camera skills 😉

There are actually at least 7 more pictures I could have used, but I didn’t because I didn’t want the page to have to load for six days, :lol:.

Pictures taken with a Nikon Coolpix 4 and a Samsung BlackJackII.
