Sprout | 4 days

Okay, I say for 4 days, but in all honesty I really hope it's less than that.  If it's not, that's fine.  I just hope for less.  And it's 4 days until my due date... not until his birthday.  We don't know when that will be just yet, but it is coming along.

Also, I had a BUSY busy weekend.  So busy in fact that while I might have slept an additional 5 hours during the day yesterday, I still feel like I haven't slept a wink and my body hates me for it.  I don't know what's going on but I can only hope that it's just preparing for labor and making things a little more uncomfortable as I go.

Because I was so busy and not really well rested, I'm also in a foul mood today.  Not to mention that I think I cried for an hour straight on Sunday night after everything was said and done.  I'm just not a happy camper and I've really tried to be the whole way through...

So with that... I'll leave you with 2 pictures and let you know that I'm seeing my dr. this afternoon and I'm hoping for SOME sort of update that will put a smile on my face.  So far, when she's checked me it hasn't really made me that excited.  I had thought that last time I wouldn't have her check me, but then I was there and couldn't resist.

On with the pictures (and grumpy face).......

Hang in there! The final days are the worst...just uncomfortable.

Try your best to relax and take it all in. ...and if you really want to get him out, laugh. ;) Laugh really really hard. Worked for me both times. ;)

I'm so excited for you!

You just let yourself be grumpy. These last days are rough. I remember crying to my husband every day when I got out of bed at the end of my first pregnancy. I felt like I just could not do it one more day, and that was after taking drugs to get pregnant and shooting myself with lov.enox and hep.arin every day. Hang in there!!!

Getting here wasn't easy and I knew there'd be a day when it would be uncomfortable to be here. Not mentally so much as physically. I'm reaching that point.

Whether I had 4 years of drugs or not... I'm happy to be here... pain and all! :)

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 …
