If he were here

I often wonder what life would be like if he were here today. What would be different? What would be the same? Would we still have Liam? Would we have Evie? Would we have four living children instead of three? I think he’d be in the second grade. What would...

The thing about breastfeeding

I know this may seem as though it’s coming out of left field seeing as how I stopped breastfeeding forever over 2 years ago.  But I have a good deal of peers still in the Baby Trenches and through them on Pinterest and Facebook, I see breastfeeding and the public...

Just a little Woe

For the record, this last month or so that I have been back on some good thyroid meds I’ve been feeling SO MUCH better.  As in, better than I’ve felt in years, practically.  I didn’t realize how far down I was all this time.  I mean, I knew I wasn’t...

I’m only a little ashamed to admit this

This is a safe place, right? And you all aren’t going to judge me too harshly because we’re all friends here, right? Good. Because I have something that I need to fess up to here. It’s not pretty, and a few of you may be quite dismayed to learn this...

Getting rid of stuff

We have too much STUFF.  I know a lot of people out there like STUFF.  Are constantly in search of more STUFF.  And love their STUFF.  We do this to some extent ourselves as no one is perfect.  But STUFF does not make me happy.  And having it laying around...

Lucky Girl

Even when there’s plenty to complain about (and let’s face it: in blogland, there is always something to complain about), I still know just how lucky I am.  In fact, I think I could be luckier than most. I’m lucky that all of my kids like to sleep.  On the...

So Friendly

Now that it’s over, I find myself searching out the Tweets and Facebook statuses and posts about BlogHer.  I want to see what I missed, I guess.  I haven’t seen much, yet.   But what I have seen makes me both sad all over again that I missed it and happy...

Flake

I’ve been a big time, grade A, first class blog flake lately. Not exactly news for anyone who has been keeping track of my update schedule over here, to be sure.  But I’ve also been a flake in keeping up at my friends’ blogs.  Now THAT is pretty sad.  This...

Days of Grace – Day 12

This should be easy, seeing as how it’s a Friday and all… The weekend.  The blessed, blessed weekend.  Hallelujah.  The taste of peppermint schanpps in hot cocoa.   Finishing my very first knitting project (pictures to follow tomorrow!) How clean and warm I feel after taking a shower.  Long phone...

What I am not

I am not domestically inclined.  I hate doing housework, I’m not a very inventive cook and I couldn’t organize to save my life.  My home reflects this about me.  I would like a clean house, dinner on the table and a more organized lifestyle but I am at a loss...
