should I rent a dingy?

We're headed to PUT-IN-BAY!!! My mom just booked the trip last week and we are all very excited! Not only are we thrilled because it's a week long vacation but it's with my whole family (brother, sister, sister's boyfriend, mom, dad, my husband and our three dogs)! It will be a blast!

Remember last year we went to Lake Michigan, well it's basically going to be the same sort of trip. Really relaxing, lots of water/beach time, site seeing and lots of eating/drinking. The bars up there are supposed to be crazy and they never shut down so the party goes all day long. Honestly, as much as I would like to drink my arse off while I'm up there, I'm hoping I won't be able to because of being knocked up. We have to wait for the latter part to happen yet but we are hopeful.

It will be a great trip, unfortunately it's in July but we are still very much looking forward to it!!! We don't have a boat but I think you can rent one... We'll see how that works out! I'm just looking forward to a week long break!

If you've been, is there a place you would suggest for eating, drinking, shopping or rentals (boat, scooters, mo-peds or anything else) on the island?

LOVE me PIB!!! We go multiple times a year. SO MUCH FUN!!! I could go on and on about what to do there. Definitely hit up the Winery! Definitely hit up Frosty's! Rent a golf cart...they are so much fun and easy to get around the island. Not that expensive either. There are also really cool caves to explore, if you are up for that.

Since you've never been, be prepared. It's a WHOLE lot of drunkenness...24/7. Beads upon beads... you'll have A LOT of people watching to do. ;)

What weekend are you going? Maybe it's a weekend we are there and we could "introduce" ourselves over a drink?

I am so jealous!

BTW, July will be here before you know - time passes by WAY too quickly!

I would say drink and be merry, but I'm also hoping that you'll have a good lil' reason not to drink - you can still be merry, though. :)

Let's hope your 2WW flies by!

Wow, that is going to be a blast! My family has been trying to plan a trip like that, but we never seem to finalize it. We went maybe 14 years ago (so way before I was legal) but I remember this place that the adults drank lots and lots of wine (maybe it's the Winery that others have mentioned?) and it seemed like a ton of fun. I'm excited for you! I can't wait to hear all about it!

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 …
