While at breakfast with a friend, the subject of the tween and teen years came up. What an awkward mess you are from age 12-16. Your body is wigging out, you can't figure out where you fit in, you're too... Continue reading

Last night I found myself assisting with a seventh grade social studies assignment. Constructing timelines, Warren was to find key events in his life, as well as three other family members. From there, he had to come up with two... Continue reading

Yesterday, we sent Warren off to a camp for kids with IBD - Crohn's and Colitis, mainly. Yesterday, I took my dad a late lunch. Neither of these things were my favorite things, to say the least. The people? Yes.... Continue reading

This week finds my dad in the hospital. Boo. He's been losing weight, nauseous, and exhausted. After some really great weeks and months, this set back occurs. And it's most likely just that - a set back. The suspicion is... Continue reading

I miss my kids. DO NOT tell them I said that. Yeah yeah, I acted like it was going to be ‘awesome’ to be without them for a week. But you know what? It’s strange. And they have only been... Continue reading

Today, Warren had his second infusion of a drug that is finally helping his Crohn's. Instead of taking a pill every day, he'll receive this drug through an IV every eight weeks (once we reach the maintenance dose level). While... Continue reading

This week I took Elaine and our neighbor (her friend) to a school sponsored evening at the local roller skating rink. As the girls laced up their skates (inline or roller? Roller, please.), they commented on how ugly the rental... Continue reading

1 – If Elaine doesn’t write it down on her paper, then it doesn’t exist. For example, she is working on memorizing 11 states and capitals from the Western region of the US. And on her map, she didn’t list... Continue reading

I'm going to go ahead and say, that as far as BIG DAYS go, meeting my dad's stem cell donor and family is on par with my wedding day and the birth of my kiddos. For real. It did not... Continue reading

January 16th marked the one year anniversary of my dad's successful stem cell transplant. On that day, one year ago, we anxiously awaited the arrival of stem cells from an anonymous donor. We'd wondered about him, prayed for him, hoped... Continue reading

I don't want to sound all, "when I was a kid I walked to school, up a hill, BOTH ways", but I have to for just a moment. I feel like it's kind of sucky that kids find out rather... Continue reading

We're rounding the bend to 2014, and I have to say, I'm welcoming it with open arms. Yes, 2014 is the year I turn forty. But I don't even care. Because 2013? It was a bit much of a roller... Continue reading

I'm still here! This managing life and work thing with two busy kids and a husband that travels frequently? Yeah... Also Christmas? Who has time for that? But rather than dwell on my worries - which I am oh so... Continue reading

I'd say that Elaine is one of the most exhausting children on the planet, but I'm sure there are several that could give her a serious run for the money. (What does that even mean, run for the money? Whatever.)... Continue reading

I know that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. But can you remind an old dog of the same old tricks she once knew? If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is around, does it... Continue reading

My life, just like yours I'm sure, can be quite chaotic at times. Right now is one of those times. Trying to keep hold of everything and prevent things from falling through the cracks is an exercise in futility. Something... Continue reading

I've mentioned that we've been trying to help the kids train for the Be The Match 5K Run/Walk. Well, the date is approaching RATHER quickly. And we did not factor our vacation week into our schedule nor did we include... Continue reading

My son, the one who does not care if his clothes match and he who hates to shower, attended his first mixer on Friday night. Yeah, process that, would you? His friend called to see if he’d be interested in... Continue reading

Please tell me you have lost your mind at some point while your children were sick. You haven't? Then we can't be friends, sorry. You have? I love you. For reals. If you don't have kids, but know you would... Continue reading

While I'm running... I alternate between feeling like a gazelle and a hippo. I feel as if I could run for miles and then as if I could not run one more step. I think of my to do list... Continue reading

W & E want to be able to run the Be The Match 5K in September. I may or may not have suggested it, but in all fairness, W had mentioned in the past that he wanted to run a... Continue reading

I want him to talk to me. And he does it less and less often, which I've been told, is 'typical' for an eleven year old boy. I don't like 'typical'. He used to talk to me. At one point... Continue reading

Last month, we were at one of Warren’s baseball games. Elaine, as usual, was playing with her gang of siblings on the playground. When the game ended, we collected Elaine and headed home. As usual, she began her questioning. E:... Continue reading

It’s been awhile since I’ve written and I miss it. But when life gets hectic, it’s one of the first things I ditch. You know, fam first and all that jazz. So, welcome (again), to my first day back. Recently,... Continue reading

This whole thing about getting older? Bah! Most days I don’t even think about my age. I think I’m pretty awesome! Other days? It’s brought directly to my attention as the most urgent matter almost like a child tugging on... Continue reading
