The Tough Get Going

Holy cow, life have been insane lately.

These last 3 weeks of work have been easily the most stressful weeks of my life. Thank goodness I absolutely love my job, because geez! We can't seem to catch a break in our office!

Our team is really struggling right now, but it's still early so hopefully things will turn around this Friday for our homecoming game. We are currently 0-4, a few of which we were either leading or closely trailing our opponent only to lose momentum after halftime. It's heart wrenching to watch our boys fight and come up short week after week. But like I said, we have a big game Friday so *fingerscrossed* we can quickly turn this season around!

As I stated in an earlier post, my grandmother isn't doing so well. We finally got her to Houston last Saturday so hopefully they can find and fix whatever is going on. Upon her arrive, she fell really ill and was rushed to an ER. My grandfather is now sick with a stomach flu also, so that's just lovely :/. My Aunt Nene did fly into Houston today, and I'm heading down tomorrow afternoon so it'll be nice to see everyone.

On a hugely positive note, we are also currently in the process of looking into purchasing a home! Talk about exciting! We've been looking for a couple weeks, but after sitting down with our mortgage dude, we are well on our way to finding our home! We have given ourselves about 2 months to find something, so go ahead and cross your fingers for that as well.

It seems like just overall, Coach and I have been a little on edge lately. Maybe it's a mix of all the above listed reasons, maybe it's because we aren't getting enough sleep, or maybe it's because our 5 year old dog continues to pee all over the house (anyone want this little schmuck?!). It's a good thing he's cute and gives the best high fives because he's be long gone by now.

I guess we don't have too much to complain about, honestly. We are both in professions that we love, we are blessed to be able to purchase a home and have a fantastic support system to lean on when times get tough. But seriously, hit me up about the dog ;)

A Note to My Littlest Love

Tomorrow, you turn two. It seems silly to write you this note, but I'm not sure how else to express how blessed we are that you are our baby.

I hope you know how much you're loved. I hope you know how hard your Daddy and I work to make sure you have a wonderful life, even if it's a bit of a different life than most families.

Sometimes, our dinners only have one parent present, but never doubt that we both want to be there.

Sometimes, you'll be up well past your bedtime, watching a game just to spend 15 minutes with your Daddy on the field.

Sometimes, there will be days that you go without seeing Daddy. Those days are hard, it breaks his heart more than you could ever imagine.

Sometimes, there will be dance recitals or games that Daddy will miss. But know, there's no bigger cheerleader than him, despite your mother being embarrassingly boisterous.

Sometimes, we have hotdogs three nights a week, and I don't really have a defense for that other than they're ea…

Well, Hello!

My goodness, it's been too long. About 4 years to be exact. Ready for a speedy update?

We're still in our sweet, little home. Best decision we've made. We've met the best people in our neighborhood and have created this wonderful family with the most incredible friends (think I need more adjectives?!).

We're still at Lone Star H.S. (Go Rangers!). Coach is now the Co-DC and I still sit by the end zone. Since I wrote last, we've had three playoff appearances, including a State final in 2015 - which, sadly, we lost. But what a ride, let me tell ya!

Speaking of that 2015 season, I found out I was pregnant round 3 of playoffs so between morning sickness (read: all day sickness) and playoff nerves, it was really stressful. Round 5, we went into triple OT. I was so sick, I spent half of the game with my head between my legs. I told Coach he can never do that to me again. I'm sure I'll get into all of that one of these days..

So here we are, first day of footba…

Knock, Knock

Football has started. I had a whole post written up about pre-season thoughts and feelings, and here we are in it. Oh well.

I *always* struggle with this time of year. I get used to having Coach home, having dinner together every day, leaning on him to help with A. Then that all comes to a screeching halt. That may be a tiny bit dramatic, considering we know what happens every year as August rolls around, but you know what I'm saying.

I tend to find myself in a funk the first month or so. Getting re-accustomed to the season, it takes me bit. Coach knows it too, we talk about it as July starts creeping in and we know what's about to happen. Coach also does a really great job of making sure he tells me I'm appreciated, he will stop for a Topo Chico or a bottle of wine on his way home. He really just gets me. And this is also the time, that I don't see his kindness because I can get too stuck in my head.

This is me basically sugarcoating that I usually turn into a total n…
