This post is a rant....sorry

2012.....what a year. It was one of my hardest years, hands down. I hate to be vague on the ole blog, cuz boring, right?  But you'll just have to trust me when I say, it sucked. Hence the  minimal postings on the blog. I just couldn't get it together.  Too much was going on.
At the end of every year we have to deal with flu season, ER trips and the holidays. It makes for a stressful time. I think my family was more sick this year then we have ever been. Mainly me. I have been terribly sick for too long. I am just now coming out of it.
 Then comes the first of the year, I hold my breath, wondering what is going to change on our health insurance. Every year it goes up and changes are made. This year, we had a DRASTIC leap in the cost of Davy's nightly shot. Like I gulped and put it on my credit card, drastic. It's so sad to me. I know there are so many people in the same boat as us. I mean, If a person can die with out a certain medication, shouldn't that be the one medication that's free? Not to mention the overall premium went up another $200. Health care is our largest monthly bill by far and that is not right.
Could someone please explain the whole Obama care to me? Is it even in effect? Who is it helping? I think if the President could just meet Davy, he would maybe put her on his insurance plan so she could be fully covered. I bet his health insurance is awesome.
I realize i never talk politics to you, that's because I hate politics. So I am not up for a political debate here, I'm just angry. OK....enough of this crap, I'm gonna turn this around......

You know the "when life hands you lemons" saying, well I was handed a a whole grove it seems. So it's now time to mass produce this lemonade stuff. Maybe i can sell it and pay for my Insurance?

 Not to sound like a total brat, I must acknowledge the blessings that were giving to me this year as well. I know there were many.
First, my Davy is alive and well. We had a close call this year that will permanently be ingrained in my mind. I know that each day with Davy is a blessing, even when I am exhausted and she's being naughty. After having our little scare, I called up our dear cousin, Amelia, and said, we need family pictures asap. It's been too long and i don't want to regret not having pictures of my beautiful girl. So here are a couple(more like a ton) of her beautiful images she took. 

Oh Max....

I am so glad i got this picture with my davygirl

 Second, we bought a house!!! I didn't think it was going to happen. The market completely changed after we sold our house. We found a perfect home that was meant to be ours. The previous owners had a special needs son, so we made an instant connection and they chose us to buy their beautiful home. It is so nice to not live in a small box. we have plenty of room. I even have a closet that is empty......for now anyway. Once we get things all fixed up. I'll show you some before and after shots. but for now i leave you with these.
                                           If you love Amelia's pictures as much as I do, go to her( blog )right now. She may be giving away a photo shoot for donations to help out a family you might know. Plus you can spend hours looking at her blog. It's candy for the eyes. 
 I'll try not to be a stranger this time.
