I can’t believe it’s almost June, this year is going by really fast. I will be 31 soon and I am not ready for it. I wish I could sometimes turn back the clock and avoid certain situations and experiences that have happened in my life. But I can’t. I suppose we learn from bad experiences and that’s all we can do. I do have to admit, I am happy to learn new things about myself. For example, recently an ex boyfriend attempted to see me and contacted me. Little did I know he was already with someone new. He treats her pretty badly and I feel sad for her, that she doesn’t see her value or worth and chooses to put up with his actions and how he treats her. I am thankful that I was able to get out of that relationship pretty quickly, even though he lied to me and forced me to do the breaking up. It’s really sad that sometimes we don’t see people’s true intentions until later on, but there is ALWAYS a lesson to be learned. For that, I am grateful.
My trip to Texas was really nice. It was good to visit Keri and have fun with my nieces and nephews. They’re so cute and fun to be around. I really wish Keri lived closer to family, I think it’d make her life a little easier. I might not agree with a few parenting techniques that Keri and Merrill use, but I honestly hope those cute kids don’t turn out to be rebellious when they get older. I won’t say too much but it does break my heart a little that I couldn’t spoil the kids when I was visiting. They are kept on a strict schedule and are kinda treated like little adults. But as much as it breaks my heart, I won’t say anything to Keri. She is their mother and I refuse to lose my sister to disagreeing on her method of parenting. The day before I left, my niece Eliana, asked me how I got so big (I don’t think I’m that big). She told me that watching too much TV can kill your brain cells and if you don’t take care of yourself, you get fat. I told her I’ve always been taller than Keri and have always had bigger hips, etc and that a few years back I went through some stuff and didn’t watch what I ate as much. Keri heard but didn’t say anything. It really hurt and I had to excuse myself into the bathroom so I could cry without the kids seeing. I’m not sure why Keri remained quiet, but if that had been my child, I would’ve told her it was very rude to ask someone that kind of question. Oh well, life goes on. Needless to say, I probably won’t go back to visit until I lose more weight. I also took some family photos for Keri, since they didn’t have any. I do love my sister very much, but I am a little disappointed in how she lives her life right now. She is so overworked and always looks exhausted. I am glad her husband helps her with the kids and grocery shopping, but I feel like he should also work like she does. Okay I shouldn’t say anything else. Overall, it was refreshing to see Keri and my cute nieces & nephews.
In other news, I love love love my new job at work! I think I’ll stay here a lot longer now! I am super excited to go visit Brian in Seattle in a few weeks, I can’t wait. It’ll be fun to see my brother and see Seattle for the first time! I also adopted a cute little puppy last month from the Utah Humane Society! His name is Kai, and he’s a Tibetan Spaniel Terrier mix!
Anyways, I hope everyone is having a good week so far!
