Au revoir, farewell, goodbye

Not that I'm very posty anymore, but after some thought and major life changes I'm shutting down this blog.  Well not really shutting down, I've just decided to get a fresh blog start elsewhere.  I will always be Barbie Girl but my life has changed.  It's different.  It's so much better.  And it deserves a place of it's own, away from my haunted past.

So if anyone still reads my blog, you can follow me to my new home:

Love to all.

Time flies when you're having fun.

Heck, I don't even know if anyone still reads my madness or not.  But here I am, posting again.   Let's see, since my last post Barbie Jr has officially become a teenager and Barbie Girl is a mother yet again.   A teenager and a newborn, should be interesting.   I've been off work several months due to pregnancy related health issues and just hope to have a job to return to.  As scary as becoming a mother again was, it has all come back to me.  My whole world is officially complete.  My life is better than I ever could have imagined.  I've come a long way. A really long way.


I don't post a whole lot.  Some because I'm too busy, some because I start and then draw a blank and mostly because I don't have a laptop and trying to type all my ramblings is nearly impossible from a smart phone.  (Edited to add that after typing that last sentence I searched the interwebs and found a bluetooth keyboard!! How did I not know this existed??)Right now I'm overwhelmed with life.  I'm pregnant, now unmedicated, trying to continue to grasp the million aspects of my new job, trying to get my house and my life in order in preparation of the baby, worried about my niece who is having health issues, and heartbroken over my father who has been diagnosed with vascular dementia.  Everything would be difficult while medicated but unmedicated I feel like a ticking timebomb.  And add to that my weight and age during this pregnancy and the worry of any possible health issues for the baby. I started this post yesterday so I don't really know where I was going …

Is it just me?

I know I'm alone in this one, I love the snow.  I freaking love it.  The minus degree temps, not so much, but I do, I love it.  Now don't get me wrong, if I lived in New England I have no doubt, I'd be quite over it by now.  But I don't live there, I live here, so damnit I'm going to enjoy it.

Which brings me to the reason for my post.  Apparently I am the only parent in the history of the world who never minded being stuck at home with my child.  I loved snow days.  I loved the snuggling and watching movies or cartoons all day.  And even now, I was a little sad I didn't have my Barbie Jr. with me the past few days.  She's with her dad this week and I've been snowed in.  She usually does her own thing when she's at home but I still missed her.

So when you start to complain, this kid is driving me crazy, or I must get away from him/her/them, remember, they grow up.  Life is short.  Enjoy them while you have them.  And most of all, count your blessing…
