I decided to join NaBloPoMo for the month of April, to see if I can really do it!  I've tried this before but I'm not always successful.  So to my new readers, I will apologize now.  I'll try to be timely about my posts and things but I can't promise anything.

To the newbies... WELCOME!

To give you a little background, I've been blogging since 2008, our quest is to become pregnant, but it hasn't happened yet.  We've gone through a number of procedures, only to find out that there isn't anything wrong with us.  Love that feeling.  "You're good but you're not going to be able to accomplish your goal.  Good luck!"

Meanwhile, I try to blog and think about things to distract me from trying to be SO focused on what we aren't able to acheive.  I like to keep it a little light a fluffy, so while you are here, I hope you enjoy!

For my lovely loyals.... HEADS UP!

There's going to be some different activity around here because of NaBloPoMo and I just wanted to let you know.  It's just for the month of April and the theme this month is "BIG", so I guess we're supposed to talk about big things, post big pictures and everything related to BIG!

For my first post on April 1st, also known as April Fools Day, my something BIG has to do with me and my professional career.  Also, just for a little peace of mind too!

Today starts my FIRST DAY BACK TO COLLEGE!!!

That's BIG, right?

I'm so stoked!  I got my book for my class 2 weeks ago and my school supplies for my class 3 weeks ago.  I keep touching them and moving them around our house.  I even started reading my book already just to see if I can get ahead.

I was never a strong student before and I hope to prove everyone wrong in the upcoming months/years!

So BIG and so freaking excited!

Congratulations on going back to school!!! What class are you taking this term?
Congratulations on your decision to go back to studying. I took it up in my thirties and never regretted it.

Good luck with the daily blogging. I signed up but I'm still negotiating my way around the site.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

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 …
