I haven't blogged since Fathers Day. I use to be really good about keeping up with it, but it just seems like life is so busy these days.

A few important dates have come and gone, and I havent blogged about any of it.

Mine and Nicks anniversary was June 26th. It came and went really fast. We had lunch on the Friday before. We havent gotten each other anything yet, and it is a month later. I decided I want a tattoo. I am not sure what he wants cant believe its been a whole year. It has gone by so fast. Not always as smooth as I had hoped for, but it has been so wonderful. I am truly blessed with him by my side.

Michael turned 13 on July 20th. He spent it with his dad, but I got to talk to him on the phone. It was hard for me not to be with him on that day. I cant believe I have been a mom for that long. He is such an amazing boy. Every day he amazes me. He is smart, funny, and so very brave. Most of you know he is Autistic. I am so proud of how far he has come. He is just beautiful inside, and out.

I was left in charge of the store for a whole week. The owners went on vacation, and I ran things while they were gone. I dont honestly know how well I did. I am sure I messed up alot, but it was my first time, and I did the best I could. I will be doing it again, this week. I am not so nervous about it this time around. There are still a few things I am not confident with, but I will do ok. It really makes me feel good that they trust me enough with that kind of responsibility.

We are having Michaels bday party this Saturday. He is really excited about it. We know what we want to get him, we just arent sure if we can afford it. Its something I planned for a long time, but money isnt working the way we had planned. I want this for him, but cash is tight for sure.

My van took a dump on me today. We dont know what is wrong with it exactly. Ive only had it for a year. Its old, and not worth the time or money to fix, but unfortunately we cant afford to get anything different. too many things revolve around
