Five years ago today I became a mommy for the last time :) Its hard to believe she was born 5 years ago, she still seems so little to me. She is my baby! Today James and I took her out for lunch, and then after school she opened the rest of her presents. Today was fairly low-key as we did the bulk of her birthday stuff yesterday because she had her party. I didn't have as much of a hard time with her turning 5 as I thought I would, but I am sure that when she starts kindergarten I will.
In other news, I am extremely excited to announce I am going to Camp Widow this August in San Diego. I heard about it through twitter, and my friends on there, and also through the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation. It is a weekend long conference for Widows and Widowers alike, and I am ecstatic!! Four days all by myself with people who have been through the exact same thing I have been. This is the first time I will go away by myself as an adult on a plane. I've never been on vacation, never left the kids with anyone...it will be awesome. James will be watching the kids for me too.
sorry if my writing seems disjointed...i just don't have it in me today. I should have written more for A's birthday, but we've had a busy couple days and I couldn't put my thoughts down on paper.
