don't cut me off... dammit.

Warning: If you are male and reading this thread, I must warn you. I will be talking about my period. My monthly cycle. Aunt Flow. I won't be talking about the blood, tampons, pads or midol... but I will be talking about the emotional side. Sory. But, if you are still reading this and feel that you would like to read on then, read on!

In true fashion, aunt flow showed yesterday as expected. No, I wasn't really expecting her but why would she let me down now? She's been so faithful to me over the years that why would this cycle be different, right?!

On a normal cycle, I’m usually a complete bitch the week prior and during my cycle. I don’t have control of those emotions or reactions until they are here and my dh tells me to back down. Usually I can sense that something is going on but aside from that I really don’t feel like my attitude is changing until it’s brought to my attention.

This week, however was a little different. I could tell that she was approaching because I was getting my normal cramping and also severe back pain on and off until she finally showed face yesterday. But my emotions this time around seem different. I haven’t really been a complete bitch this week. I’ve actually be an emotional wreck. I’ve found myself crying on a number of occasions over things that I would NEVER typically cry over.

To give you an example of something I normally cry over… Grey’s Anatomy. There is always a scene in that show that makes me cry… or at least tear up. Last night it was when the son came into the father’s room after Karev yelled at him for not caring. Or when McDreamy gave Meredith the liver in the jar and said thank you to her for her help with the clinical trial!

However, today I found myself crying at this asshole that cut me off on a merge where I was in the right of way and he didn’t even blink an eye! I started to tear up because of that this morning. This, my blog friends, is an example of something that would NEVER make me cry. I was pissed but it was so strange how it just turned into tears all of a sudden.

I can’t wait for moments when I cry for no reason while I’m a hormonal wreck during a future pregnancy. But for right now, I don’t know I can handle these random crying episodes. It’s very strange and so not like me.

Ugh…. Some days I just hate being a woman.

Love you LOTS. You're stronger than most people I know... and yet, we all falter, don't we? Let the feelings flow. Fighting them will only make it worse... you're amazing. HUGE hugs to you.

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 …
