set back, maybe...

I decided (over the weekend) that I'm going to go through with my endometriosis laparoscopy. I was timid at first because I've mentally told myself, "I can do this on my own (with the help of dh, of course) and it will happen this month!" Unfortunately, I've said that for the last 18 months and it's just not working for us. I didn't want to loose hope. I wanted to crank through this month and REALLY give this month our BEST try ever. Not that this month is any different than the last 22 months, but in my mind, something was going to click sometime and I wanted it to be this month. Just had a feeling... (but again, no different than any other feeling that I've had throughout this process)...

After much discussion, I've come to the conclusion that at this rate, what's another month? And, if this surgery can only help me in the end, then why not? I'm not 100% ready for it but I have to (again) stay positive. I'm anxious to find out if there is something there, but at the same time, I'm frightened about being put under. I guess as you get older you do get freaked out about going under more and more.

So I have my meeting with my doctor in 2 weeks, then a week following I have my surgery. I'll keep you posted on my feelings/questions and maybe some of your input will help me.

On the upside: I've heard a number of stories about endo and the lap. Most have a really positive turn around on becoming pregnant following the surgery. So my fingers will remain crossed, for hope that it has the same effect on me!

So, stay tuned for more to come...

I had mine done about 2 months ago to remove my endo and I've never regretted removing them.

If you'd like to hear more of it, you can email me

Don't be scared by what I am to tell you but yes, itt will hurt so ask for lots of painkillers and make sure that your DH is by your side for the first few days.

I've got fingers crossed for you too!!!!

Keep us posted!!! (((((Hugs)))))

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 …
