So much can happen in a year

It has been over a year since I posted on my blog so I thought it might be helpful for me to update and try to get back into writing. I'll try to keep this update short; May 2011 we were heading across country to move to Nevada. It was a long trip and we were looking forward to starting over and being near my family. Along the way Robert got me a dog for my birthday. We later had to take her to the shelter after she bit my daughter.

We made it to Nevada and got settled into our new house, it was nice to be out of apartments after 9 years. For the first time ever we have a yard and a garage, it was really nice. We went and got the kids all new beds and got another dog from CA. Living the dream.
My cousin went missing in August and was later determined to be dead although he was never found. It has taken a toll on the family and I have struggled with it a lot.

 Right before Christmas we were informed that Robert was being laid off. Not what you want to hear around the holidays but oh well. We had a nice Christmas and new year. I continued to struggle with everything and went through a bunch of meds trying to find something that works and all of them made me gain a ton of weight which in itself didn't help any. Finally my doctor gave up and sent me to a specialist and he diagnosed me with PTSD and Bipolar disorder. I have been on new meds and getting better.

Soon we will have to move again, I just hope we don't have to go too far away, I like being able to visit my family sooner than once every 3 years. So that is basically the last year. I would like to try and get into writing once a week
