  • Oh, Christmas Tree
    on Dec 12, 2016 in christmas Danny Plagiocephaly
    The tree is up. I wish I had something more fancy to say. That's all I've got.  If I manage to leave the house looking half human, with some form of makeup on, that's fancy too. I feel like a Walking Dead cast member most days.  Really, hav...
  • I'm exhausted
    on Dec 4, 2016 in Danny Plagiocephaly
    As the title suggests, I very literally feel defeated.  Lately scrounging the energy to do day to day things is just so entirely draining. I'm not sure what is going on with me. I think, personally, I am doing to much for one person, but at the...

    I haven't blogged much. What else is new? haha.  To be honest it was getting way too uncomfortable sitting at the trusty old desktop. My dad went out and got himself a new lap top, and gifted me his old one. SO MUCH BETTER!So, I guess I should p...

  • My BIG Move and BIGGER News..
    on Nov 4, 2015 in baby 3 new house pregnancy
    I haven't had access to a computer in a while, and I didn't feel I had the patience to update from my phone. (You know, the whole fat fingers typo syndrome - and let's face it, I'm not the best writer to begin with). :)July 28th was my last day at my...

  • Moving along...
    on Jul 23, 2015 in moving
    For a while, I've chose not to post the things and goings on of our "humble" abode, and mostly out of privacy or respect for my family.  But like most things in our generation, they don't last and crumble apart.  Eventually, you find some g...

    March 10th, 2015  Ten years ago, I was 22.  I was recovering from what I still say was the worst physical pain of my life.  I am ashamed to admit that after a failed 23 hour labor that ended in a c section, I was so out of it emotional...

  • I find a hard time balancing time.
    on Sep 13, 2014 in Personal Journaling
    Long gone, are the days of being a stay at home mom.  I always told myself, that as a mother, it was the hardest job I had ever had. Prior to my children, I had worked full time in both a real estate office and nights at a local restaurant. &nbs...
  • Obligatory Disney World Blog.I feel semi redundant when I say, "I rarely blog anymore". Because, truth be told, while I don't tend to graze over my own blog (or spell, or grammar check it for that matter) - I'm all too sure I've said that a time or two.  Between work and ki...
