I have gone back and forth about making a resolution this year.

I have a very silly one that I'm going to try and follow through with and after this month so far, I think I need to step it up a little.

My {very silly} resolution is to stop saying fuck so much.  I say it so casually and A LOT that I need to just stop because it's becoming REALLY obnoxious.

But as for the other really resolutions, I just haven't made any because I haven't ever been good about following through with them.

And the funny thing is, now that I haven't made one about losing weight or exercising more or eating better or taking the dog on more walks or spending more time at home with my husband, etc....  I've done all of those things.  I worked out 4 times last week and it was great!  I've recorded some of those terribly dressed FitTV shows and we're doing them at home together.  It's really been nice!  And with all that snow and ice still on the streets, it's the best that we can do at this point...

Feels good!

Ha ha! That's a great resolution! I, too, swear like a sailor. It's probably terrible, but I just can't seem to help it. The "f-bomb" is also my's just so flexible. :)

Good luck with the F bomb. I used to say it all.the.time before I had Sophia. It was my mom resolution back then and it was soooo hard to stop doing. Half the time, I didn't even realize I said it.

I figured if I didn't start now, I may never stop and I don't want to end up with a baby that might have it's first word be fuck.

No, I'm not pregnant.

But I do have a friend whose child says, "oh fucking christ!" and in context. It's not right. Funny. But I'm not the parent and it's just not right.

I'm just saying....
That's a great resolution...I should make the same one.

Hilarious! That made me laugh. I am horrible about it. I've started to say "cuss" or "cussing" in the place of cuss words. Just having to pause myself to remember to say "cuss" instead of the actual word has made me realize just how bad my potty mouth is!

My DH is always saying that to me. I cursed like a sailor before we had a baby. He made me start practicing "clean" language before he arrived so our son's first word wouldn't be shit or fuck, lol.

So now I replaced the bad words with funny stuff like "fudge" or "shut the front door." I also like "son of a biscuit eater." People usually laugh at me but hey, whatever works, right?

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 …
