My computer crashed and burned - literally. I was writing a hot, steamy blog and smelled something burning.
No, it wasn't me burning with desire, it was my computer. The motherboard to be exact. So, for the moment, I'm down and out in Palm Desert unless I can take my lunchbreak at work and blog.
In the meantime, life is hopping with Baby Boo in the house. I can't imagine life without her being a part of it now. Years ago, my then husband, now ex and I had tried and tried for another baby. Yet, it wasn't happening. We went to an infertility doctor and tried various procedures. It wasn't to be, although I had such a deep yearning to be a mommy again. That yearning was squashed when I found out that my husband was cheating. Together, we made the choice to work at our marriage in spite of it. It took hard work on both of our parts but mainly, he had to rebuild my trust in him and the relationship again. Years later and after many years of counseling, we made our marriage work. Worked so well, that we were voted the high desert sweethearts and a write-up was done in our local newspaper.
Then, 9 years later, the affair of all affairs and the lies stacked upon lies. It demolished what had been rebuilt. I knew that it was over. I would never trust him again. There also went my dream to have another baby.
Now, fast forward…when I met Boo, I had no idea that there was a Baby Boo. I fell in love with him and Baby Boo was an added blessing. When she is spending time with us, I am in heaven again. No matter how ornery she can be, I remember how often I prayed to have a little one in my life again. Yes, she has a mommy but when she's here with us, I am her Momo and together, we have a ball.
I'm reminded that joy comes in ways that are unexpected. In this case, she came from falling in love with my Boo. He brought love, laughter and smiles once again and as a special bonus, came Baby Boo.
