Me and Manny November 16,2004. He was @ work, at the time, a bartender @ cue D\'s, pool hall. I\'ve been there before with friends, noticed him, but i thought to myself, there was no way he could be single! Then i asked my friends about them being they always go there, and to my surprise they told me he wasn\'t. SO... in order to approach him, i had to take drinks, get buzzed, for i had NO balls to approach him, (i never approach guys!) but i felt something in me, that was forcing my towards it, as if it was meant to be! And it was! I introduced myself, first thing he asked, \'how old are you?\' it was too funny, but atleast hes cautious! But i did lie, told him i was 18, but truth be told, i wasnt turning 18 til 5 months later!! But after we went out, the first dinner date,i told him the truth. He was upset, but he accepted. We were togethr since! He purposed after a month of being together. Things were in Puppy-Love mode! Got our own house5 months later. But as all things come to an end, so did we. We lost our huse, our jobs, forced to move in with his parents. And have been since. We were struggling, then doing good. Everytime we push ourselves up again, it seems as if something comes along to knock us right back down. We got the good news of me expecting our first child in May of 2006, and thimgs got brighter since. Our son was born that october, and to our surprise, i got pregnant again right after. Our daughter was born that next october of 2007. So both in the same month, but different dates. My son is the eldest. I was a stay at home mom for 2 years, until manny got laid-off right before Christmas of 2008, and i was forced to find a job, which didnt bother me at all. i was immediately hired @ Olive Garden. And Manny was a stay at home dad for a year! Since then, we stepped up a bit, Manny got a great paying job now. It takes him away from us, working 14 hours a day, but we struggle to make ends meet, and they do! Im not working no more, im attending college to Be in the Nursing industry, making a better and stable career for my family\'s future. We\'ve gone thru alot, more bad then good, but at the end of the day, we still have each other, and thats the BEST it can get and nothing else feels better!
