2nd year in the tradition

As our family continues to grow and our needs/wants start to change, it becomes more and more difficult to buy for everyone for Christmas.  We haven't ever thought that we'd do a drawing and whoever you get is who you buy for, we just make lists.  We write down things that we'd like or have interest in and it's up to everyone else to figure out who buys what.  We don't get everything on our list, or at least sometimes that happens and sometimes it doesn't.  We are happy to receive anything!  {As I write this I can hear myself seeming selfish and that's not where I'm going with this.} It's just meant to be a guide.

So, to start this year off with a few things that I would like, without forgetting about them before it's time to make my list, I thought I'd post them here.

1. A Flat Iron.  I don't have a preference, I just want one.  I had one YEARS ago.  Loved it.  But dropped it on the ground and it split in 1/2.   I haven't ever replaced it but have gotten to a point that I need one.  Everyone always questions me when I ask for one because I do have rediculously straight hair but this will only help me style it better.  My round brush can only do so much and when it's done I'll have to use this...

2. A running watch.  I didn't think that I wanted one at first because I was always running the same distance around my neighborhood and I knew about how long it took me to do it.  Well, that's sort of changed and I want to know more.  I want to not only know my time, but the distance and my heart rate while I'm running.  It's not asking too much and I believe this watch will take care of those things for me!  {Oh and it doesn't have to be pink.  I actually would rather it be ANY color aside from pink.  It was just the image that I found.}

I think a running watch would be a great gift! Maybe I'll put that on my own list.
I have a plain old Remmington flat iron from Kohl's. I love it! Great choice on the watch. I may steal that from ya and put it on my wishlists.

This is funny. I was going to post today about my Christmas wish list, which contains a hair dryer and a watch. My husband told me those are not "gifts". He thinks I should pick things that are more fun. But, I really want them! ;-) haha.
I want a flat iron but I don't even know how to use it!?!

I love my running watch! I have a NIKE and it was well worth the money

Ooooh, I like both and have neither!

I have a flat iron too and you know how straight my hair is! It just helps with the styling, like you said. You'll love one, again!

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 …
