The Way We Work

I’ve been quiet. The more I tell myself to blog, the less I do. The more time I carve out for it, the less I feel like I have. And the more I want to say, the less I feel like I can. It hurts to write about something when you’re in it. It hurts…

Which Window Are You Looking Through?

Sometimes I think back to these funny Alfred Hitchcock movies my dad would sometimes watch with me.  I’ve never been a scary movie person so even the dated black and white ones would still scare me.  But dad loved scary movies and it was always something I wished I could share with him.  These movies…

The Receiver

Christmas when you’re a kid.  Most of us, and I’m sorry to those who don’t share this experience, were pretty excited.  Receiving gifts is awesome.  Whatever toy you may have been hoping for, whatever new game, whatever would make your life easier, some new clothes….it was all so awesome.  Then something changed for me around…

Single mom life

Don’t let the title fool you, and please don’t be offended real single moms. I’m only getting a taste of your life and here to justify how hard you work. Andy went away for work this week….again. It didn’t used to happen a lot but lately it’s seems like so much. He goes to Vancouver…

The Learning Curve

It’s been almost three months since baby girl warrior was born.  We’ve been home for two.  Since we walked through our doors we have been trying to find our new normal.  This isn’t unusual for new parents.  Adding another child to your home means a lot of changes and trying to get everyone on board…

Everly Jay: Miracle Baby

I have struggled with what to post/share and when.  Aside from this blog I try to keep most things pretty private.  But when a situation comes with so much information and there is an outpouring of love and support, the internet truly makes it possible to fill in everyone at the same time.  So here…

To the working moms, who are not 9-5…

When I scroll through my newsfeed some days I love what I see about parenting.  I see posts about moms letting their guard down, helping each other, unveiling the ugly truth that none of us know the answer or know if we are doing it right.  I see support for breastfeeding moms, bottle feeding moms,…

Why or Why Not…Me?

This post has been on my mind a while now.  Today is the day I see why and how my thoughts and what I’ve been trying to do with my mind and my life are put to the test.  There have been a few instances over the last month or two where this question keeps…

The monthly mourning

We’ve done the pills. We’ve done the oils. We tracked, we planned, we scheduled. We took meds, we took more meds, we went to doctors, made appointments, went to more doctors and went to more appointments. We did a few rounds of IUI. Turkey basting I like to call it because as soon as you get…

I guess, the beginning.

As I’ve said before, the reason for the start of this blog was to keep an online diary where I can remember my feelings. I’ve failed at the frequency of which I’ve wanted to document them because I constantly battle with if my current feelings deserve a blog post or if they are insignificant. I’m…
