How life changes

As I was sitting here bored, I started contemplating on what I should write about. Since it's a weekday, it's been the same redundant routine at the Martin household. David gets home around 7:00 am and goes straight to bed and I usually get up around 10:00 with Shayna, feed her and make sure she's content until about noon, I then lay her down for a nap and have some time to myself which usually means the ever exciting household tasks of loading/unloading the dishwasher, laundry, and overall cleaning and David wakes up around 1:00pm and then does whatever else needs to be done outside. So, that's a typical weekday in this house; weekends however, are something very chaotic and different.

Which brings me to the point of this entry today. I was sitting here watching a re-run of Full House (sad, I know) and started thinking about my life as it is now vs. just about 2 years ago. About two years ago I was in yet another failing relationship when I met my husband. I was lonely, depressed, and I longed for what most of my friends had- a relationship and a child. I thought my situation was hopeless and I would forever feel forsaken and unhappy. Then I met David and my life changed forever. I managed to find one of the truly few good men that are left and we got married and had our beautiful daughter, but had you known me 2-3 yrs ago, you wouldn't think I was the same person. I just wanted to take some time to reflect on my past and write about how much I love life now. I have to cut this short because Shayna is waking up from her nap, but there's always more to come from the crazy times at the Martin household.
