If anyone has any imput on this situation, I'd LOVE to hear it.

So, I was driving to Walgreens to get the pregnancy tests, right?  I got back to the office, shoved my purchase into my purse and started to roll up my window when I saw that my window sill of my car had freshly made bird poop on it.  At first, I was like, "what the hell? how did that happen and i didn't see it?"  Well, it happened and I don't have a clue where or when but at least it was fresh. 

I leave my car unlocked, walk into the office and then notice that I actually have some over-spray on my jean jacket sleeve!  I was pissed.  While it wasn't a lot, it still happened and this was my FIRST encounter with bird poop.

So, I scrub my sleeve, grab some spray to clean my car off and come back in to do the test.

You know the rest of this day...

So, I'm talking to Mr. Hope later and mention how pissed I was about the bird poop.  He says, "Well, you know it's actually pee and poop at the same time so you really have a right to be pissed"... bahhhaaaaaaahhhhhh...

Anyway, he goes on and tells me that he was actually pooped on today too!  It was actually on a basketball that he was holding in front of him when it happened.  Can you believe it!?!!?  He was standing in the gym of his school where there happen to be two robins that somehow got into the building.  Same sort of thing though, this was his FIRST encounter with bird poop too.

My initial (crazy) thought was... MAYBE that means that we're having twins!

His response... Or a bird.

Have any suggestions as to why this would've happened to us and what it might mean?

Even if you don't, you have to agree that this is a little weird, right?

Humm, I think that the birds just knew they could get away with *pissing* you off without much flack since it was such a good day for you.
It's an old wives tale that being pooped on by a bird is suppose to be good luck :)

I got pooped on for the first time in Italian woman told me it was good luck.

I say it's double good luck for you guys! I do know 6 couples having twins right now...crrrr-azy!
My sister in law, who is 13 weeks pregnant with her first, saw storks (not common where we live in CA) THREE times the day she thought she was pregnant and went to buy a test. I have heard good luck too....

It was good luck poop! Either that or they are trying to prepare you for all the poop you will be encountering once your little one arrives. :)

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 …
