excitement in c-bus...

While coming back from our lunch break we noticed that there were several people crowded around our office and all over the parks. While stopped at a stop light we asked one of the spectators what was going on... They stated that the Barnum & Bailey Circus animals were going to be marching through shortly on their way to Nationwide for their performance.

So what did any normal person do? Ran in, told the whole office and then lined up along the street to see the march.

Here are few pictures that were documented just 30 minutes ago during their march...






Here's the article from the C-bus Dispatch:

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus comes to town this week and is preceded by the animal walk Tuesday.

Elephants, horses and zebras will walk from the circus train to Nationwide Arena, where shows will be presented Thursday through Sunday.

The 3-mile walk begins at Goodale Boulevard and Grandview Avenue, continuing east on Goodale to Neil Avenue, south on Neil to Nationwide Boulevard and east on Nationwide to the arena.

The start time is expected to be 1:30 p.m., although a circus spokeswoman cautioned that that could change if the train is delayed. The animals return to the train using the same route about 3 p.m. Sunday, after the last show.

Five Ringling elephants also will be in the northwest parking lot of the arena on Friday to promote the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a Saturday fundraiser for breast-cancer research. The five will trot 100 feet to a finish line of fresh produce.

That event starts at 1:50 p.m. with circus clowns warming up the crowd.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
