National Delurking Week 2010

As most of you are aware, it's NATIONAL DELURKING WEEK 2010.

It's exciting because not only is it a National celebration but I get to learn and see more about who's reading my blog.

I know there are a lot of you out there that just stop by from time to time, others that stop by more often and a mixture of you that leave comments.  Either way, I appreciate your continued support, even if it's the silent kind.

Being that this week has once again come upon us, I wanted to reach out to you in hopes that I would once again find out more about you and maybe what you like most about my blog.

So, I have a question for you... Something simple that won't take much time to think about.  Something that should be easily shared publicly...

What's your best memory of 2009?  Somewhere you went, someone you met, a picture you took, a moment with your family, a purchase, a movie, a lipstick, etc....

And as always, tHaNk YoU fOr ReAdInG!!!

And if you don't want to respond to that question, you are more than welcome to ask me something about myself... I'd be happy to answer a question from my readers!!

Probably my son's first birthday party. 40 of our closest family and friends came to share in our big guys day and I thought it was so amazing!

My favorite memory of 2009 was when my husband and I started going to church regularly. We're going just about every other Sunday and sometimes every Sunday. It's something we've been really bad about doing.

My husband sang and played the guitar at a church in their contemporary service for about 5 or 7 years. We live almost an hour from that church now and it was just too hard to go there on a Sunday and not spend 5 hours of our day doing so...

We took a break and then we just couldn't decide where we wanted to go.

We're back on track now, for a while now and it feels good. Really good.

Thanks for asking me Leah!

I'm here! I just started reading your blog a few weeks ago. I found it through a link from another blog. The name is what struck me - I knew exactly what it meant before I even clicked. My husband and I have been trying since August 2006 so I know exactly what you're going through. It's nice to know we're not alone.

One special memory from 2009 was taking a family vacation, just the four of us. We went to a favorite place from my childhood, and watching my kids play in the same lake that I played in when I was their age was really cool.

That is an awesome memory!
Hola! My favorite memory? Lila.

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 …
