How did you tell him?

(Still on May 10, 2010): So, even though I knew I had thought of 100 ideas on how to tell my husband, those all went to hell in a handbasket when I actually got those results.

This is how it went down, all by text, of course:


Me: "It worked! Two lines means YES!"

Him: "You are kidding! :) :) That is awesome! :) Did you make a drs appointment?"

Me: "I'm not! I'm a little in shock. I'm going to call the dr now. Omg..."

Him: "This is great. We need to make a plan tonight and discuss a timeline of things we need to do."

And that's how it happened.

No cute card.

No picture from etsy that I wanted to buy and give to him with a thoughtful note and the test results.


Just a positive pregnancy test and at this point, that is all we could ask for!

I haven't been to your blog lately but I've been following you for a while. This post caught my eye and I had to come tell you CONGRATS!!

LOL I had grand plans as well...I wanted to give him a card, take a picture...something.

But it ended in me yelling downstairs that I had something to show him. He didn't even know I was testing. We had guests downstairs that had no idea. I just told him to go look at the bathroom counter and he did. And he didn't believe me. He barely saw the two lines and hadn't heard the "a line is a line" over and over as I had. So he made me test again with a digital. And it came up Pregnant. And we hugged and cried. Then we went back downstairs as if nothing had happened.

I woke my Hubs at 5 a.m., told him I got two lines, that I'm pregnant. He didn't believe it! "It's a false positive," he said. "The second line is faint."

A second line is a second line, honey. The doctor confirmed later that day. That was THREE YEARS AGO! We can't believe how quickly time passed.

I'm so happy for you!

...and when it comes down to it, nothing means as much as two little lines (not a note, or a card, or a picture...). Excitement is excitement and joy is joy. I'm sure the text meant the WORLD to your hubby.

I'll admit I'm one of those "tell hubby in a cute way" kinda gals. But that is only because my husband works long hours and I had extra hours to scheme and be creative!

If I were you, I don't think I would have been able to wait one extra second to tell him the good news. You've waited long enough, hon ;)

I think all plans go out the window when you are so excited and unprepared. How fun though!!

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 …
