This week, +Matthew H​ went out of town for work for the first time. The day he left, the baby got sick. Then Logan got a cold too. Keller was not adjusting well and had his worst meltdown ever at school and destroyed the classroom, which resulted in him getting suspended until today. Yesterday Dylan woke me up with a horrible pain in her stomach and then it moved to her right side and she was in so much pain she was in tears and I spent last night in the ER with her, where they determined she just has really bad gas stuck right there. So thankful to my friend for coming over to watch the other kids with no notice, and to my dad for driving us all the way to Doernbechers... And then home almost 4 hours later.
And now Matthew is safely in Portland and on his way home and I gotta say... I am always grateful to him, and I say thanks when he helps me with things and stuff... But I never quite realized just HOW much he is such a very important part of this household in so many ways... I am so, so beat, and his presence was missed so dearly by everyone. So much. I would be, and often was this week, completely overwhelmed and lost without him here. I'm pretty tough and I survived, but that's it. I just survived. Barely. I don't ever want to have to do that again. I'm sure I'll have to at some point, but holy moly. I'm so glad and grateful for him. He is so much a huge part of how our family works. Our family doesn't work nearly as well without you, Matthew. You are definitely an amazing part of it and we are so glad to have you back. Welcome home. <3

This evening, all sorts of things went... Awry... Didn't get to see the band I REALLY wanted to see tonight, but we ended up having an okay night anyway. On our way home now, and in the end, I'm glad Matthew was by my side during this unusual adventure, as usual. <3

5 years ago today, my dear friend +Matthew H​ and I hung out together without our kids or other friends for the first time, on a date that wasn't called a date because both of us were scared to call it that even though we both knew what it was. 5 years ago today, I already knew I loved him but wouldn't have told him at the time. 5 years ago today, I would never have imagined that when our kids played house and always decided we were the mom and dad and they were brother and sister, that it would become our lives. 5 years ago today, my life changed forever, and through every challenge, through every trouble, through every happy moment, I am so lucky to have looked no more than a few feet and seen his face and have shared everything with him. He's been the world under my clumsy feet, and I've been there to remind him that it's okay to dream. We have shared our hearts, our home, our children, and grown together in these 5 years, and I look forward to many, many more. I love you more than anything, Matthew. Thanks for changing my life and being my world. Happy anniversary, pinguino.

My besties brother, Johnnie Nammavong, went fishing at Blue Creek Boat Ramp at COWLITZ RIVER in TOLEDO, WA, THURSDAY Jan. 26 and his last contact he had with friends was FRIDAY Jan. 27 2017.

His fishing pole, fishing chair, tackle box, and backpack were all found still sitting at his fishing spot. Sheriff has not found where he may have gone, but his car is still parked in same spot, as well.

He is 45 y/o of Laotian heritage; 5' 8" tall, 175 lbs, brown eyes, black hair.

If anyone knows any info on his whereabouts please contact:
Lewis County Sheriff Deputy Andrew Scrivner, with case # 17L1072.

Thank you! PLEASE SHARE

Okay... Our living room is starting to diminish in size; we are at gift capacity. I discovered a few things this year:
A) butcher paper is amazing and less expensive than wrapping paper
B) our kids have very generous long-distance grandparents on all sides but man that was a lot of wrapping gifts and I'm kind of a pro now :-D
and C) my favorite part is that I really enjoyed making gifts that are specially crafted for people I love. Way more fun than trying to wade through crowds at a mall.
Happy holidays to everyone <3
