Goin through the big "D"

Goin through the big "D" and don't mean Dallas, I can't believe what the judge had to tell us!!... I can't remember who sings that song but I found it playing over and over in my head while I sat in Courtroom 208 in the Supreme Court of Nanaimo. I Chelsea Dawn am officially divorced!! I have been going through an erruption of emotions all day sad,mad, elated,angry, happy, confused. At the end of it all I finally have peace. We have been in a courtroom battle since our separation two years ago, set aside the "brief encounter, producing twins"-as my lawyer put it!! All in all I have my children, and my hair, which on many different occasions could have been pulled out! So if any of you know any good looking millionaires send them my way!! Just kidding, I am loving my happy peacefull home with just me and the kids and I am looking forward to the next stage of my life...Hint-Hint:
I will be returning to work at my Salon in November, but I will e going back to school. I am going to be a Lawyer! I have always known and wanted to finish my education but I couldn't pinpoint a career, and by witnessing the Canadian Justice System over these past two years I have seen the ins and outs and I want to be a part of it!

The following pictures are some happy, peacefull shots of Ty and Rylie!!

As if I needed another reminder that I am a overtly emotional hormonal being... The OLYMPICS are back!! Yes you read that correctly the Olympics make me ball like a the a water buffalo. I have always loved the Olympics and for some strange reason when I watch the Parade of Nations I cry to the extent where I cannot talk, as if I had just lost my right arm, which by the way is still MIA. I was looking for him last night to help me with Olivia and he was no where to be found. So I got the kids all dressed for our important family moment - Parade of Nations - They loved it! they sat through the entire two hours, it was so cool to explain to them, in a muffled voice due to too much crying, how this is when people from all over the world come together to compete. It is where race, creed, color, political bull crap and all other nonsense are put aside and people are just that people. I absolutely love what the Olympics stand for and I have always wanted to be in them despite my inability to play sports! If child rearing became a sport I feel I would have a fair shot at the podium. So here are some pics of the kids in their Canadian Grub. Rylie would not pose with the other three but her single shot is pretty cute!

Olivia, Ty and Oliver


When it was time for China to walk around the track with their flag, I completely lost it when Yao Ming and a little Chinese boy carried out the flag, Ty put his arm around me and said "momma it's ok someone will win. Please don't cry!" I tried to explain to him that I was crying because it is such a cool thing that despite all the bad that goes on people can all come together and compete. He looked at me and said " then why aren't you acting cool?"
