True Love

LAST night my husband proved himself truly lovely! He made dinner, cleaned up AND made cookies. I’m still not feeling well, yesterday was particularly bad. But, I’m glad I’ve got HIM in my court. He’s fantastic! (He even got a chick flick and laughed loudly along with me!) LAST  love, true love, great love forever love,…

There are other blogs out there?

Why yes there are! There is a great community of writers out there. The ones I like to follow tend to be women and are often Mommy’s. But, that’s where the similarities end. These women have all kinds of lives and histories, beliefs and hopes. And, it is such a joy to follow them on…

There’s been some work done here!

Can’t you tell? Well, there has. There has been some work done on my site. And, I didn’t do it all myself. I don’t have the html skills. And, though I might have good ideas and have a good eye, and may one day have some mad design skills, I don’t have them now…so I…

The Depression Monster

The depression monster has taken over my life. It is affecting everything! Such as; the kitchen, the laundry, my ability to refill my prescription, my blogging, my sleeping (which I could do almost all the time!) my ability to plan meals, my ability to leave the house. Some things do still get done. But, they…

TOP 10 LIST

*Make a top ten list of favorite things you haven’t done in over a year.* 1. Go to the beach! My husband and I met in Wilmington, NC. We were both living there at the time, and we haven’t been back for a visit in over a year! I’m so excited to go spend a…

IT’S A HAMBURGER!

IT’S A GIRL! IT’S A CLAIRE! (But, I won’t show you a picture for proof! I think that’s a little indecent, don’t you?) Anyway, could you take a minute and say hi to Claire. That’s what Lizzy-Jane did this morning when I got home from the doctor. I almost cried while telling her the good…

The Adventures of Lizzy-Jane: Part 2

                                GG wanted to go shopping on Saturday, so she called us to meet her half way at Concord Mills. We had a great time perusing a few kitchen stores and a couple children’s stores. GG wanted to buy a drying…

Right on Time

                      Lizzy-Jane was right on time! Actually she was a month early. But, that was good for me!! And, since I’m her Mom I was assigned the task of teaching her right from wrong. So, I started very early teaching her that she was WORTH…

I Will Overcome

There is a group called Celebrating Recovery, and sometimes I think I should join that group. Today is one of those days! I am in the midst of the longest string of *good* days that I have had in THREE YEARS! What has caused it? God. Definitely. Our move. Most certainly. An increased dosage of…

A Day Without Power

So, maybe you noticed, but we had  HUGE storm night before last. It was very loud. It actually woke me up. Apparently their was hail and a tornado nearby. But, really all I heard was wind, rain and thunder. The lightening lit up our whole room. At one point my husband said, “Was that lightening?”…

Easter Monologue

Hey guys! Well, I’m writing and performing a monologue for church Easter Sunday morning. I’m kind of excited about it. I hope it goes well! I haven’t acted in a while. I’m posting it here. I wrote it this morning while Lizzy-Jane watched the Veggie Tales video “God Made You Special” that we got from…

The Toddler’s in my EAR again!

Oh, how I love her let me count the ways… But, oh the repetitive questioning has begun to push me to the limits of SANITY. “Where are we going to, Mommy?” and “What I eat for dinner?” and “What he doing?” and “Where did he go?” and  “What I eat for dinner, Mommy?” It goes…
