My name is Jill.

And I have an addiction to Target.

(Hi Jill.)

I'm not kidding.  I'm seriously a Target-holic.

People.  This is getting serious.  I used to go there on my lunch at least once per week for SOMETHING, sometimes nothing.  I'd just go.  And I'd always walk out of there and spent more money than I was hoping, but was done was done and for some reason, I'd still feel good about it.

Then.  They came out with the Target Debit Red Card and I had to have it.  I thought at first that it was bogus, but then after having the third associate approach me about it, I was sold.  Brought in my check, opened my account and waited patiently for my card to arrive.

Waiting for my red card, didn't stop me from going there and saving 5% each time.  Unfortunately, from the time I signed up, to the time my card arrived, I think I went 3 times in a week.

When my card arrived... I literally yelp with joy and jumped up and down a couple of times.  It felt so awesome to have a red card.

Now, I go there for everything.  We need milk, Target.  We need paper plates and deodorant, Target.  We need a card, Target.  We need snacks, Target. 

It's bad.

This week alone, I went there Monday for diapers for both kids, and hair stuff for S, Tuesday I went there for a handful of groceries because I forgot a coupon, and now Wednesday I went there for the rest of our groceries.  It's insane.

Maybe that's all part of the ploy... Get a red card and it only increases the trip which in turn increases their sales.  Genius.

My only complaint.

If Target wants to carry groceries and wants to have baggers bag the groceries, they better get to training them on how to bag groceries.  Because if I end up with deodorant with my mini breakfast muffins again, I'm going to be that crazy lady in line that flips out on the associate who doesn't do it right.

Watch me.

It's not that hard, people!

Don't worry, this won't stop me from going to Target.  I just will limit my trips and choose my bagging associates wisely.

I think Target should just charge me a cover charge. Like every time I walk in I give them a hundred bucks. Sometimes I'll use it, sometimes I don't, but we just call it even.

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 …
