another thing on hold...

Because of our house guests and all of the drama that comes along with having two people living in your house permanently/temporarily, we have been forced to put some major things on hold. 

One thing for sure is our furniture.  We had every intention of purchasing these pieces in the beginning of October/mid October but with our house guests still living with us and the wear and tear that they are already causing to our current items, we decided that we're going to hold off.  It's not the financial part that is standing in our way.  It's the fact that we want to enjoy them and because they are the ones who are home all day everyday enjoying our things, we want them to just live on what we have.  We'll take the furniture to the next step once they move out, whenever that might be...

I'm sort of bummed about this but it's just the way that it needs to be.  I'm not going to give them our nice things to ruin or wear down. 

It's just the way it has to be....

You will be happy in the end! Think of it as a prize to yourself for being so nice to your houseguests...
I agree with you. It's like when you buy a new shirt and someone asks to borrow it...well, hello! Let me wear it first!!! Sorry about having to wait.

I think this sounds like a great idea. I agree that if you spend your hard earned money on new furniture, it should be YOU enjoying it. Can't wait to see when you do!

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 …
