7 years

I posted a quick witty update on my facebook this morning and then I found myself in tears because it's exactly how I feel.

"7 years ago, I married the funniest man around.  7 years later, he still has me laughing, daily.  I love you, S.  Happy Anniversary!"

I wouldn't say it any other way.

And, to celebrate we did a lot.  We're not huge on the whole jewelry smoochy mushy romantic stuff.  We just did what we like and we enjoyed every moment together.  As I begin to put this post together, I realize that we have turned into the stereo typical old married couple...

Yesterday, we started off our day with Lowe's for a return, Giant Eagle for some gift card purchases, Kohl's for some Red's onesies for our little guy, then we were off to PetCo for a new bone for Toby-dog, from there we went to Target to just browse... Then we went off to Mr. Sushi for a absolutely fabulous lunch and we cannot wait to go back!  Seriously, it was dreamy!  Then we walked around this old part of town going in a few shops and walking through a memorial park.  From there we went to Jeni's Ice Cream for some delicious Dark Chocolate & Brown Buttered Almond Brittle ice cream that was amazing.  

After all of that we met some of our friends that we haven't seen in about 3 years for some coffee and a walk to the play ground with their little family.  It was great to spend time with them and although there was a stiff breeze that came and went all too often, we had a great time seeing them and visiting with them.  Luckily, they'll be 7 hours away now by driving instead of (what they said was) a 7 hour flight!  Oh my!

And, if that weren't enough, we kept going.

We headed to Best Buy for our (my) PUSH PRESENT purchase!!!

We got it home, followed all the recommended instructions and then we tried it out.  This is what we came up with so far...

The put themselves in this position, we did not put them together like this...

The new bone, pictured above.

This one is not the best pictures, but it's post yawn for Toby... Hilarious!

So far, I'm pretty impressed.  Now, I just need to figure out how to make these pictures appear bigger in blogger.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I tried a couple of things, but it just didn't do what I thought it would and made the pictures distorted.


Happy Anniversary Babe, I love you and can't wait for what this year holds for us!  It's going to be a blast!

You have a pretty narrow column for your writing, so you might not be able to choose "large" for your picture width without the pics overlapping into your middle column. It's worth a shot though.

When I upload pics from my good Canon, I first resize them smaller (usually to around 600x800 - make sure you save them under a different name so you don't lose the large file) so they don't take up as much room in my blogger account, and so they load more quickly.

Then once you upload a picture and see it in your editor, if you mouse over the picture, some options come up (left - right - center, small - medium - large, caption, etc).

Choose a different size to see how it looks in your layout.

If you're still having issues, let me know in more detail what you're trying and I can try to toubleshoot for you.

Sounds like a wonderful anniversary!! :)

Happy Anniversary!

The pics look great! I hope you love the camera--I know I was really glad to be able to practice for a few months before baby arrived :) You'll love it!

Happy Anniversary!

(Your column for posts is fairly narrow, I'm not sure your photos will get much larger without overlapping into your badge column)

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 …
