milestones and memories

Because it's fun to learn more about the people that you read, I thought this was a more entertaining way of doing it.

Stolen from Busted's blog:

1. Who was your first prom date?
His name was Jon. I was a sophomore and he was a senior. His arm had a defect that had been that way since birth. He was a nice guy but I only went to prom with him.

2. Do you still talk to your first love?
Mushy, right... but I don't think I knew what love was until I met my husband.

3. What was your first alcoholic drink?
Rolling Rocks. It tasted fine after the first or second one. I don't remember too much from that night but I did I pee the bed. And it wasn't my bed.

4. What was your first job?
I worked at the local pool at the age of 14. I rode my bike to work.

5. What was your first car?
An '89 Honda Accord LXi, stick shift.

6. Who was the first person to text you today?
My husband. I won't repeat what he said. It's gross potty talk.

7. Who was the first person you thought of this morning?
My mom. It frustrates me when she's stressed and I can't help.

8. Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Harper. Loved her. Seriously one of my favorite teachers.

9. Where did you go on your first flight in a plane?
I think it was when I was 4 and I went to my uncle's graduation at the Naval Acadamey with my dad.

10. Who was your first best friend and do you still talk?
Jill.Sivinski. I'm friend's with her on facebook but outside of that I hadn't talked to her since I was 12 or something... We still don't talk much now. Sad.

11. Where was your first sleepover?
Probably with the girl scouts in our neighborhood. Those girls were always having sleepovers.

12. Who was the first person you talked to today?
My husband.

13. Whose wedding were you in for the first time?
Aside from my own, I was in my best friend's wedding in Atlanta. It was beautiful!

14. What was the first thing you did this morning?
Let Toby outside to go potty.

15. What was the first concert you went to?
I think it was the Bangels at the state fair. If I'm remembering correctly, I watched it from the spot light booth with my dad. He's a stagehand.

16. First tattoo?
Don't have one. I've thought about it but I've never done it.

17. First piercing?
My ears, with my mom for my 12th birthday party.

18. First foreign country you went to?
Does Canada count? How pathetic is that? I want to do more off this continent but haven't done it yet. :(

19. First movie you remember seeing?
I remember watching Dirty Dancing and having my mom fast-forward through parts of the movie that she didn't want us to see. Even the kissing.

20. What state (province) did you first live in?
I was born and raised in Ohio. Love that place.

21. Who was your first room mate?
My husband.

22. When was your first detention?
I got a detention when I got a bad grade and I didn't bring my report card back in with my parent's signature. I didn't want to show them and delaid it and then got in even more trouble with the dentention. Good thinking, right?

23. When was your first kiss?
In a pool in 1997.

24. What is one thing you would learn, given the chance?
I would like to learn/extend my vocabulary.

25. Who will be the next person to post this?
As Busted did, I'm going to leave it open. Go ahead, do it!


Thanks for commenting today and especially for the jazz hands (love those!!!). My first plane trip was by MYSELF at age 5 and my parents told me if I was bad, they would throw me off the plane!!!

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 …
