i won't be the one....

I've been very lucky through this entire pregnancy with feeling great!  I also haven't had an awful case of the sicknesses, the tired spells or anything else.  It's been really slick and I'm completely thankful for those things.

With all of that said, we've also (while typically very social people) have cut back a little on our social calendars.  I like to think that it's mostly because it's winter and sometimes it just hard to rally the troops together, but I also think it has something to do with the fact that I'm not encouraging the gatherings and setting up wine or beer nights with our friends.  Plus, let's be honest... no one likes the sober pregnant girl at the party when you're getting your drink on, I get it.

But, what I have been saying all along is, I won't be the one to ruin your fun. 

What do I mean by this?  Well we went to a birthday party at a bar the other weekend.  We carpooled down with our neighbor friends to save on gas and because the party didn't start until 8pm!  It worked out great.  They could all get their drink on and I could drive them around safely.  It was perfect!

When we were there, I was amongst about 5 pregnant girls and while we did occupy a corner of the bar for some time, I was feeling great and doing great.  I had the waters coming steadily and the bathroom wasn't bad either.  I didn't have any complaints.

A couple of times through the night, my husband was checking on me to make sure I was okay and same with our friends because they didn't want me to be having a miserable time while they were having a blast... but that wasn't the case at all.  I wasn't tired, I was feeling good and I wasn't going to be the one to stop the party.

With that, I wanted to make sure that it was known that I'm happy to be your DD and I won't make you leave unless it's time. 

I'm very lucky to feel this good and I know that I'm still in the early stages of pregnancy, but still.  20 weeks and staying at a bar until 12am was great.  I had a good time, the drunks were tolerable and our group had a good time.

Just goes to show that even when you're pregnant you can still have a good time!

It is nice to have a PD (pregnant driver) however, I would never abuse the privelege. I like sober activities as well :)

I was impressed I made it until 11:00 :)

Hello! I was scrolling through Faces of Loss Blogroll when I came across yours. My husband and I lost our second daughter at 36-weeks January 2010. We called her “Spud”. So I felt a connection when I saw you called your baby Spud. I am so sorry for your loss. I briefly browsed a few posts and it is odd, we have a few similarities. My husband was a teacher, now a principal. But the oddest similarity is calling your second child “Sprout”. We called our first daughter Sprout. Hoping and prayer your Sprout arrives safely!
:) That is awesome. Brings back memories of when we went to Bourbon street in New Orleans when I was 8 months and I got hit on. LOL! I was like "Dude, I am 8 months pregnant!" But it made me feel good. I am so glad that you had fun and felt great and I hope it stays that way. You deserve it! :)

What do you mean no one likes the sober pregnant girl at the party? I was that girl! j/k. I didn't mind being the dd either. I would rather have everyone be safe. I can enjoy myself without having to drink. :)
I am glad you had a fun evening with your friends!

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 …
