I miss…
thumbnail
This move to Texas has been tough. But I'm sure you already know that, if you talk to me at all. I mention it once every 30 seconds or so. There are days when things are peachy-keen. But sometimes there are days like today. Days when I feel like there's a hole where something important used to sit. And that hole feels different on different days. Some days I miss ...

Our family
thumbnail
So every time I've opened my blog I've tried to write a post, but nothing has come to me. My man and I have been busy but we weren't sharing all of our activities. But we've decided that we should share our journey. Now, before I get too far and you are all sitting there trying to figure out what I'm talking about, I'll just share it with you. We want ...

Bu-bye, 2012!
thumbnail
It's now January 9, 2013. I don't think I've posted since December 14th. Lots going on. We drove to Florida and spent an amazing week with my parents and my siblings and their families. Buddy and I got nasty colds. Buddy didn't sleep while we were in Florida. We left two weeks early due to sickness, weather, and lack of sleep. I thank God for the chance to see my ...

Black Friday
thumbnail
Was it just me or did Black Friday lack some of its luster this year? We weren't shopping for any big ticket items. I didn't see any great deals that got me out of bed early (or into bed late). As I did last year, when the kids woke me up I headed out to a few stores. I think it was 7:15 or so when I left the house. My ...

Goodbyes
thumbnail
I said goodbye to my parents today. They've been visiting for the last week. A whole, wonderful week. I hate goodbyes. Hate them! I always cry. And when my parents leave I spend the rest of the day close to tears; today is no exception. I love hosting family and friends. I enjoy having company during the day when my man is at work. My kids love having Nani and Papa ...

Pay it Forward
thumbnail
About a week ago Buddy grabbed my phone and held it under the faucet. He had just figured out how to turn on the faucet, so he was putting everything he could find under the water. Thankfully my Otterbox kept it pretty protected. But the next day I noticed that the sound wasn't quite right. My man figured out that the phone thought my headphones were plugged in all the ...

My Bucket List
thumbnail
My friend Vanessa posted her bucket list several years ago. She revisited it on her blog this weekend. Lately I've been thinking about making a list of my own. Alissa made a list to be completed in the next 1,000 days. I felt too much pressure to have a time limit. Haha! I took the list Vanessa found online (a random fun life list) and started with that. The things in ...

Super Powers
thumbnail
Here's a random question: If you could have a super power, which one would you have? Here are my thoughts on the matter: 1. Is never feeling tired a super power? Cause I'd pick that one! Buddy isn't sleeping well of late. (Please be molars, because I need to know it will end!) And I'm just TIRED! 2. Just in case #1 isn't a real super power, then I'd like to be two places ...

Adjustments
thumbnail
Posting around here has been fairly frequent, but the post I want to write most sits in my mind and on my heart. I'm not sure I can even write it accurately. My emotions are jumbled; my mind is racing. It's hard to clearly write what I'm thinking in this state of mind. I've been in Texas for almost two months. I left Vermont 3 months ago. Sometimes it seems ...

Emotions
thumbnail
Today is Buddy's 11 month birthday. I have a post mostly written, but right now I have so much running through my head. The best way to sort it all out? Write it down. So be prepared for rambling, confusing, but therapeutic writing! In a few short weeks I will leave New England for Texas. I am a New Englander through and through (well, except for my dislike of seafood). I ...
