With Sprout's arrival on the horizon and Spring quarter about to start, I had a big choice to make for this quarter.  To go back or to not go back? 

Basically, the only thing standing in my way was the fact that Spring quarter ends around June 11th and my due date is June 4th.  I feared that if I got a nasty professor (which I really haven't yet) that wouldn't let me finish early or at least let me have some flexibility on my due dates for projects and tasks, then I wasn't going to be able to complete this quarter. 

While I'm fully aware of how far along I am and how much I'm going to have to do to prepare for this baby, but what's one more thing in the grand scheme of things, right?


If I would've done that, I would've probably survived but then been super stressed about everything else that I wasn't making time to do.  Plus, I've been a A & B student since coming back to college and the last thing I'd want to do is to make my GPA suffer because I made a bad call.

So, I'm taking Spring quarter off and I plan to return for summer quarter.

Definitely seems like the right choice to me!
Smart decision. I think it's hard to absorb new information once you get to a certain point in your pregnancy. I had to stop my Spanish classes when I was 7-months pregnant because I just wasn't retaining ANYTHING. And, I was exhausted.

Smart move.

Hope you're feeling well!

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 …
