how many years young...

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

That's right, today is the day that I arrived into the world.

Through my 26 years, I'd like to say that I've learned a lot, loved a lot, hurt a lot and laughed a lot. My hurt has always been something that I can over come. I've learned from my hurt and from my love. I laugh only because it's the most enjoyable thing for me. I love to laugh! I also love to make people laugh, although that doesn't always come easy for me (that's why I married my dh)!

I've gained new friends, stayed in touch with old friends, lost touch with some friends and have got back in touch with other friends. You all play a major role in my life and sometimes I feel like I would have no where to turn if you weren't there to lend a shoulder or hand. Thank you for being who you are in my life!

My husband. The bestest friend of all! As a language arts teacher, he'll appreciate the spelling error in the last sentence. =) You are a main source of my laughter, everyday, and for that I love you. Even when I hate the world, you are still able to have me laugh about something. Most of the time it's as simple as a funny face, comment or maybe a fart. Either way, it's entertaining and I enjoy it! You are my rock, my love, my back bone, my motivation, my everything. I love you and I love all 8 years that we've been together!

My family. 4 (immediate) family members that really mean the world to me. Obviously, if it weren't for my parents I wouldn't be here, so thanks for that one! My dad, the ultimate handy man and keeper of all random things! He's always there to help and always has something to help with. He's a great dad and I hope some day Sean will pick up some more of his handy man tricks. My mom, our family rock. She keeps us all sane, she makes us laugh, she's innocent and quiet, yet funny and lovable. She's a fantastic mom! Lastly, my siblings, who are both great and major figures in my life. We have been through a lot as a family and it's great to be able to depend on them for things. I also look forward to spending my birthday evening with all of you!

I'll wrap up with a quote:

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Now go and celebrate my birthday!! Drink lots and lots of margaritas!!!!!!!!! =)

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 …
