size matters

Monday, July 29th, 2013

When I first started dating Chris and visited his house, I mentioned how small his bedroom was. It was smaller than any bedroom I’d ever had and I only lived in apartments. When he and I got our first apartment together, it was rather large and we didn’t really have any problems fitting a crib […]

cautiously optimistic

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

We had a really, really good night with Daisy last night. And today was her best day yet. I won’t say she’s cured or even definitely on the road to recovery, but one good night and day makes me feel so much better about her. I relaxed today for the first time in weeks because […]

So today the hubby and I have been married for 17 years. As he said, there have been bad days, of course, but never because of our marriage. It’s the one thing in our life that we can always count on.
Celebrating this year has proved difficult because of a certain little one’s continuing illness. What […]

a new hope

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

I’d rather not keep blogging about my youngest child, but she took up the bulk of my day and I don’t want to skip a day of blogging if I can help it.
The quick version, thorough appointment with doctor where she even asked us a ton of questions like if there were changes at home, […]

Free beer tomorrow

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Tabitha came home from her weekend with the start of a cold which is fantastic timing, of course. Not that it’s ever a good time to be sick, but truly, 2013 will go down as the year of a million illnesses. I just don’t want Daisy to get it on top of her current ailment. […]

flowing days

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Days are kind of meaningless right now. Most of our regular activities have either stopped or been altered to the extent that we have no idea what day of the week it is around here.
The thing consuming much of my thoughts is Daisy’s mystery ailment which I don’t feel like jotting down here. She’s […]

typing quietly

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Still sharing the living room with Dee for sleeping so my blog time is gone since I type loudly. I’ll try to get some time in on Saturday.

panic (not at the disco)

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning I awoke with a lovely panic attack. Unlike this past spring, I at least know what caused it. But the main problem was I couldn’t go back to sleep so I had a mere 3.5 hours of sleep which is not nearly enough for me to be some […]

Bypassing Hallmark

Monday, July 15th, 2013

I have a friend who’s birthday is Friday and I thought it would be nice to make a card. I used to make all our Christmas cards with rubber stamps, but they were fairly generic since I had to do 50 of them. And I’ve certainly made birthday cards here and there, but for the […]

Whoosh! There went Sunday

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

Chris and I got out first thing this morning for our shopping trips as we had a deadline to be back home. Got home, ate lunch, Tabitha was taken to a birthday party and Daisy got dressed for our afternoon plans.
Thus begun the hunt of the dangly earrings.
When Daisy got her ears pierced, she was […]

excuse the typos

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Typing this on my phone, so we’ll see how it goes. Finally got it in my head this evening that I really wanted to update. I’d like to gain my readers back but there’s no guarantee I’ll keep this up.
Daisy has been ill and it has wreaked havoc on my sanity. Thursday I was so […]
