Embracing The Car Payment

Being a grown up is hard. When Brent and I first got married, I drove a 1980 Volkswagen Rabbit.  I loved that car but it wasn’t very practical.  It had a leak in the back and possibly extremely toxic and hazardous mushrooms grew on the floor in the back seat.  One day Brent and I […]

Welcome Summer

School is finally over and summer break has arrived!!  I am pretty sure that I am more excited about it than my children are.  Welcome Summer!! Isaac made it through his first year at school.  I almost feel sorry for him that Kindergarten is over.  It’s kind of downhill from there.  Next year he will […]

Isaac’s Sixth Birthday Party!

I know I am a little late posting this.  Sometimes brain fog can really hamper one’s function, especially when it comes to computering and writing and doing…details. Isaac is now six.  A big whopping six.  It’s really weird that he’s getting so old.  I remember I used to walk into his room when he woke […]

Growing

It’s been a while – I haven’t been in the greatest of moods lately and I just feel like I don’t know what to say that’s uplifting and fantastic.  The elephant hasn’t lifted off my chest quite yet.  I still get moments where I miss him so much that I feel like I can’t breathe.  […]

Grow Out of Autism?

There’s this thing I’ve been reading about.  Seeing articles shared.  Hearing people say “well I hear now that kids can grow out of autism”. These things are angering me.  ANGERING ME. I don’t know if Silas would have an autism diagnosis if he were reassessed.  I’m going to say he wouldn’t, I think it would […]

Not Giving Up!

I am trying really hard to get my body back into shape.  My weight had crept up the last few years.  I’m not sure exactly what happened here though. About three years ago I decided to eat breakfast every day instead of just drinking coffee.  Because then I hardly ate anything all day.  So since […]

My Last Day of My Twenties

Today is my last day of my twenties.  I felt like I should finish it with doing something completely immature but then I realized that already happened last week with two of my friends a “few” tequila shots.  SO I’m glad that’s over with and I can treat today like any other day. Turning 30 […]

When Pinterest Goes Wrong

Pinterest is inspiring, addicting, educational, thought provoking, self esteem ruining, self esteem helping, amazing and sometimes even a total disaster. I’ve been a part of Pinterest for a while and go through phases of pinning and complete avoidance.  I find that it can be very shallow on there.  I get annoyed at some of the […]

Beam Me Up

I apologize.  Some days I just don’t have much else to say.  All I want to do is whine and complain and scream about how much I miss my baby. I don’t want to bring people down. I’ve been listening to this song a lot and I’m even learning to play it on the guitar.  […]

Turning Thirty

I’m turning thirty next week.  Dirty dirty thirty. It’s crazy what happens in life in a year.  The last year has had it’s up and downs but I dare say that it was one of the happiest years of my life.  Quite a few things happened that I never mentioned here but they were significant […]

Who’s The Crazy One?

I have this memory that when I was in Cuba swimming in the ocean with one of my besties (@courtenaymomma).  Her and I swam really far out in this crystal clear water and then we stopped for a minute and were talking then we looked down and saw two sharks swimming below us.  We yelled […]

Transformations and Hurdles

It’s very weird how different I am since losing Jonah.  It flipped a switch in my brain and, honestly, I hope it stays flipped.  I just wish I could have had the switched flipped by other means – you know…like being fed up with myself or something.  I hope this stays, I really do. I […]

How am I?

Still hard to figure out what to write these days.  I don’t want to be all doom and gloom.  I don’t want to always make people sad with my story.  I just have so many feelings I want to get out. It aches.  It aches really bad.  Thankfully I am easily distracted but so many […]

Jonah’s Story: Part 2

Click here for part 1 Brent and I decided together that we would take the night and in the morning we would head to the hospital.  We needed our rest, I needed a moment to gather my thoughts.  That night we slept more peacefully than we had in months.  All was quiet.  That began the […]
