There has been a bit of upheaval and stress going on here for the last month or so. I was doing good again until Friday night when my emotions got me after I dropped my kids off for an overnight with my mom and stepdad. (Our only local family.)

And then yesterday instead of meeting my mom, stepdad and kids for my birthday meal out it turned out to be a surprise party with my bestie and her family, my stepsister and her 5 kids who live about 3 hours away and 2 of my stepdad’s siblings who live 2 hours away. I don’t normally like a lot of attention like that but it was good.

And then my dad, stepmom and cousin with her family walked in. They live about 7 hours away so TOTAL shock. I bawled. Which I like doing publicly less than anything. But seriously!! Thankfully no one recorded!! 😅

The fact that my mom and DH pulled a surprise party wasn’t a full shock. But seeing my family?! That meant the world to me.:bawling::redheartpump:

Thank you all. I’ve had so many emotions in the last 48 hours I felt like I almost didn’t know what to feel at any one given moment. :rolleyes2::dizzy: My cousin had to go home the same day (Thats one major long day for people whose youngest is 2!! Seriously Rockstars!!) but I got to spend today with my Dad and his wife so that was nice. Plus we had leftover lasagna and things from the restaurant yesterday. (My favorite little Italian place.)
