Do what you gotta do girl. Who cares what others say! I am so proud of you and L will come around. I saw huge differences in her when she was here so she is getting it. I promise you that.

Sorry for the drastic changes. I wanted to not pay as much so I am playing with the design a touch. Unfortunately cheaper means...not as pretty. We shall see how this works. Continue reading

I have waited for it and tried to force on her what I thought it should be....then she went and made one up on her own. One she has used for quite awhile and I just finally picked up on. She said, "Ne ne ne ne ne ne" as she follows me all over the house or cries at my feet. I scratched my head thinking, "Where did this come from?" Then I finally thought, "Duh, I have called it nursing since day one. " Saying, "Do you want to nurse?" or "Oh she wants to nurse". So it is... Continue reading

Ashley is one of those people that gets a cold and complains. I often remind her the snot will retreat, the coughs will hideaway and again you will forget what it is to live life without all those lovely symptoms. Add in there that she is highly allergic and Just a cold for her does mean she is more miserable, more susceptible to secondary infections and she gets taken down more easily than the rest of us. I have a cold and I am forced too (and often can) still function. I grab my box of Kleenexes and think of... Continue reading

It is amazing how easily you forget the worry of a sick baby. Wednesday was riddled with high fevers, late nights, sleeping in shifts and one very sad, cranky, not feeling so hot baby. I was worried. Not worried like I would have been with Ash because let's be honest; compared with Ash most things seem like a mild case of "whatever". But there is just something different about having a sick baby. They can't say, "My throat hurts" or "my tummy hurts". You have to read cues and everything is a guess and maybe you are right and maybe... Continue reading

Section # 1 ---> Here Section # 2 ---> Here ___________________________________________ I woke up a time later to a urine-like medicinal smell that has plagued hospitals for years. There were weird shades of green representing the many shades of my mood and they made me nauseous trying to figure out their patterns. The room reeked of something sickening and tragic making the tension in my back tighten even more. I looked for the scissors again wanting to thrust them into the pain reminding myself that I killed my little girl. I wanted to feel her pain in the only way... Continue reading

Man oh man! Annabelle's getting teeth and on the nursing Momma that is hard. Partially because I have no clue where the end in sight is and partially because I got spoiled for the one glorious week I got good sleep. I slept from 10-6 every night and got so spoiled. Gone are those days and now I stare at the clock again at 4AM and try and find compassion for my sweet adorable teething baby when all I really want to do is say, "Really? Again?" She can't help it. I feel bad for her. I hope those suckers... Continue reading

I am sorry Saturday was a bad day and I am sorry if I played a part in it. I am afraid my tired butt grumpiness is seeping into others lives. I am a little disturbed you like the bleach smell so much. You don't drink it do you? Giggles. It will get better...it always does. hugs

See Section # 1 -----> Here __________________________ “Ma’am, please! She is gone. Let this officer take you in the ambulance to the hospital. We need to check you out. There is still a chance she can be brought back but in order to do that you have to move!” I moved. They tried and tried and tried and nothing happened. I sat silent and in dismay of my own injuries insignificant to my daughters fleeting lifelessness. By now the crowd had swelled and was staring and they seemed confused at who it was they were looking at but I had... Continue reading

Abigail has established a name preference and said it really bothers her when people in public (her teachers) call her Abigail. So I am gonna make the rounds letting them know she prefers to be called Abigail. I did talk with though about how it was okay to just say, "You can call me Abbie. Everyone calls me that." She said, "It makes me feel like I am in trouble." Giggles. She dances this week here in town. She is so excited. That girl loves ballet! Continue reading

Anna has been weird. Not bad, not good: just weird. My sneaking suspicion is that we are finally in the tooth phase but only time will tell. She is more needy than usual. I feel bad for her. I have been letting her chew on cool washcloths and giving tylenol. Poor pumpkin. In order mouth related news Anna had her first full meal with no baby foods offered. She did so good. She had spaghetti with meat, corn and garlic bread. She loved it. Her favorite was gumming the garlic bread. She managed to eat quite a bit and then... Continue reading

Here I am sharing a story online when my profs specifically said, "No don't." However, I want to share this story. It is one I have worked on for years literally and I think the final polish could happen here in my blog. I may have shared it here before. It is inspired from a true story but I have very little details other than the basic part of the story. So this is me sharing my version of this story. Inside that Yellow Line There was a moment all my life’s mistakes came crashing literally into my lap. Sophie... Continue reading

I am not feeling all sentimental today like I have been the last few days. Instead I am just coasting. Enjoying my spring break with no homework looming largely over my head. I am enjoying healthy kids, warm weather and a happy home. I have had time to spend on decent dinners. I am doing my new workout routine that is guaranteed (we shall see) to have me running a 5K nonstop in 10 weeks. I will take it. My first night I felt like rubber and burned like heck. Yesterday though all that dissipated and I felt much better.... Continue reading

Well I have since found out the lady running not me mondays is somewhat of a fraud (I can't prove it but don't have time to waste figuring it out). So I quit doing it because I don't want to drum up much more business for that kind of person. That being said, "I didn't have Mexican for the third time straight today under the guise of letting my girlfriend get her fix since she has been on vacation. Nope not me." Continue reading

His name is Kyle. Not sure how but he found his way here. Considering I have been journaling in some form or another since 2000. It is amazing he has not found me yet. He did though and he was shocked to see all the nice things I said about him. I am kind of glad he did. I am not usually an openly affectionate person. However, I would never mistake my shyness about affection for lack of it. In private and when I trust people I am annoyingly affectionate. With my husband it comes and goes. With life, right?...

There is this amazing man who makes me laugh. He makes me laugh so much sometimes it makes my guts hurt. Sometimes with just one word I will be sent into a fit of giggles that make me lose my breath. 13 years ago I picked up the telephone and on the other end was a shy and quiet voice. A voice that has comforted me through some of the toughest times in my life and a voice that has cheered me on in the happiest. The voice that says, "Good Morning" (albeit slowly) in the morning and the voice... Continue reading

For this summer...to become the runner I know I already am. I have wanted to do this for awhile. Just never had the motivation to carry it out. Then again I never thought I had the motivation to lose 55lbs either and well here I am. So in following with the Women's Guide to Running I am on my way. I want to push my body to new limits. I must admit on my first outside run today it felt good. The sun on my face and the breeze quickly moving past my ears it all felt so good. My... Continue reading

When we started on this solids journey Anna would eat anything and everything. The only real problem was sweet potatoes that caused her some spit up issues. Enter a stomach virus that took us down. Me vomit and everything else lovely that a stomach virus causes and Anna the lovely ol' diaper issues that a stomach virus causes and now her tastes are perfected. Now I am not sure if there is correlation with the stomach bug or her tasted just refined. She will not eat(even a smidge)... Carrots, sweet potatoes, peaches, apricots She will tolerate to a point Squash... Continue reading

I don't do many things well in french. Usually I shoot for mediocre. However, speaking in front of people is a skill I just have. I am not sure how I got it or why I can do it. That isn't to say I love it. I still get jitters and stuff I just can handle it better than most. Add in a foreign language and I have a challenge on my hands. Last semester the speech I made bombed BAD. It was too long, a snoozer and I got too caught up in the fact that I was speaking... Continue reading
