my list.... part III

My list, 36 to 50:

36. Playing dress up with my sister, friends and sometimes my brother.

37. Seeing New Kids on the Block from the spot light booth with my dad at the state fair.

38. Also watching the Bangles from the spot light booth too. Crazy view up there!

39. Hearing the story of my brother, who was riding his bike when a rain/sleet storm came on. He buckled down and petaled his butt of with his head down. He was just down the street and was trying to get home before it got too bad. Before he got to the drive way he hit a stopped car (like stopped in the middle of the lane because he couldn't see, stopped). Unfortunately my brother was sighted and had to pay for the damage to the car. How rude, IMO??!! He was biking in something that even the car couldn't drive in.

40. Piano lessons at Mrs. DeWitt's house in the basement.

41. Swinging on the tree swing at Sam and Jack's house, next door.

42. Picking out Oscar at the human society.

43. "Working" at Polaris with the Marketing dept. asking people to fill out surveys before concerts and then getting into the concert for free! The best time was when it was Jewel & Rusted Root, however the hippies that came late didn't realize that Rusted Root had opened for Jewel and not the other way around. They were all so pissed off and left. The show was pretty empty but still enjoyable on the lawn.

44. Meeting Mr. Hope for the first time!

45. Being back stage and meeting the cast of RENT.

46. Getting my red convertible car for my barbies. It was a hit! I was waiting for it through several birthdays and holidays, it seemed.

47. Sitting with my mom through her chemo treatments.

48. Swinging on the porch swing with my grandma and having her tell me time and time again, "Don't hit the wall!" I never listened... or maybe I did and I just couldn't help myself. It was fun. I was little and didn't know any better.

49. Going to Scotty MacBean's, drinking steamers and just taking in the surroundings OR talking about life and when we were going to do with ours once we were out of high school.

50. Going to the "castle park" at 9pm or later and talking or swinging.

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 …
