One of my husbands most favorite stories to tell about me is when we first moved into together after our wedding. Of course sleeping with each other wasn't uncommon but since we had never lived together, it was a little bit of an adjustment. It was within the first month of being married that in the middle of the night, I sprung up out of bed, sitting straight up, and I yelled, "WHERE'S MY DIVING BOARD?" as loud as I could. Only to freak the SHIT out of my husband. Of course I was dreaming and what about, well, aside from my diving board, I'm not sure. It was a sight, I'm sure and to this day you can still hear in his voice that I freak the SHIT out of him when I did it. He wasn't sure how to react. He said that his only response was, "I don't know, where is your diving board?" I, of course didn't respond. Just grunted and laid back down.

This wasn't the only time that this happened.

Another time, I didn't talk or yell anything. I simply sat up in bed and basically flair chopped my husband and then just went right back to sleep. Of course he screamed in fear but I was oblivious!

{I'm sitting here remembering him tell these stories and I'm dying with laughter. My cube mates, including the COO of the company, must think I'm loony.}

Okay, so this brings me to last night. I'm standing in the kitchen, making Sean's lunch. He comes in laughing as he's brushing his teeth and asks me if I remember what I was dreaming about last night. Of course, I was asleep and don't remember but clearly he does. I was dreaming about something and yelled, "NO JULIA, DON'T TAKE THAT!!!" right in his ear. Julia is my sister and why I was yelling at her, I'll never know. I just think it's funny that I have these random outburst. I just wish I knew why they didn't happen more often.

Too funny...

Do you do anything like this? Sleep walk, talk in your sleep? If so, do tell...

Oh my gosh, that is hysterical! I love it! I wish I did funny stuff like that in my sleep. I have awful allergies and just make this noise with my throat that sounds like a pig when I sleep. No joke. My husband is a lucky guy. ;) haha.

MY HUSBAND!!! Once (before we were married) I was stranded at church and I called him to come pick me up. He answered… sounded fine to me so I asked him to pick me up. HE TOLD ME NO!!! What the $%&$&$&#$&*^*$!!! Are you kidding me?!?!? I ended up calling my parents and they picked me up, but when I asked him about it in the morning he said he didn’t remember that conversation at all! Lol, now that I’m married to him I KNOW he does it! LOL!

I used to walk in my sleep, and laugh in my mom was always freaked by that.

I dated someone once that fell asleep in front of the TV, he bolted up and said "did you se that?" I thought i was having a heartattack....he was still asleep but I asked him what? he said a mouse, over there....and then laid back down....i never did see the mouse LOL

oh, and my husband throws elbows in his sleep, one day I know I will end up with a bloody nose.

Hi! Just got your comment, we actually stayed at my uncle's home at Lake Wylie, so I don't have any vacation information for you. Sorry!!

When my husband and I were first dating, like one of the first nights he stayed over at my place, I jumped up in bed and yelled "We're the world's local bank!" Which was the slogan for my then-employer (not that we ever used that slogan day-to-day) He still teases me about it and sometimes just calls it out :)

I sleep with arms above my head at night. I don't go to sleep that way but sometimes they end up above my head. (I've slept that way my whole life. My mom has several pictures of me sleeping when I was little and its the same way I sleep now. Must be comfortable, who knows?!?! I don't wake up like that.)Anyways, I seem to bonk my husband in the head with my elbows quite regularily when I bring my arms back down. Sometimes I remember doing it but am not awake enough to apologize but I usually remember in the morning and apologize then.

I've honked before in my sleep. Only once..that I know of. My husband was like "what the f>>> was that?"

J--remind me to get seperate hotel rooms if we ever do a girl trip. That would freak me out!

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 …
