My husband and I live our lives together.  We're married.  That's what we do, right?

But we also have an understanding for our time away.  Whether it's out with our friends, drinks after work, babysitting, time with family, etc... whatever it is.  We do all of these things with ease.  We know that separation makes the heart grow fonder...

In the last few weeks or days, I've had this overwhelming feeling that when I'm not with my husband, I miss him dearly.  Like "brings tears to my eyes, just want to hug and kiss him" sort of missing him...

I told him that this morning because it was consuming all of my thoughts.  I mean, we're at work right now.  Something that we do every day and we've been doing for all of our lives.

I'd like to think that it's the follistim and hormones in my system that are making me all weepy...

Either way, I really do miss him.  I miss spending time with him.  I miss being close to him.  I miss his touch.  I miss his kisses, his jokes, his smile, his smell, his silly faces, the way the he talks to our animals, everything.  It's a strange feeling.  It's really strange.  He's here.  He's alive.  He loves me.  But I still miss him like crazy.

Awe, I completely understand. I have those same overwhelming emotions every Monday when my husband goes back to work after being home with us on the weekend.

I think it's a great means you have a strong connection.

I know what you mean. Now that I am forced into menopause it's been really hard on me emotionally. I hate being away from him.

I definitely know the feeling! I have totally been feeling that way lately, probably because I'm at home most of the day with just the baby... Also, I rarely comment, but I want you to know that I'm always reading! :)

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 …
