Life: Just Livin’ It…

Frustrating. Amazing. Infuriating. Miraculous. Difficult. Beautiful. Unpredictable. Wonderful. Life — it’s all that and more. No two days are ever really the same. One morning everything can appear to be perfect and by mid-morning coffee the table has been turned and you’re starting all over again. There’s no way to tell from one moment to the next what’s going to be coming at you … most of the time. It definitely keeps it interesting, at least. As has become par for the course (and fairly necessary for the sake of what remains of my sanity!), I spent the weekend with

Day of Reflection – I’m Thankful for …

I’ve been a little absent, but thought I’d pop on and wish the internet world a Happy Thanksgiving! In the spirit of the holiday, it’s the opportune time for a bit of reflection and despite all the trials and tribulations of the year, I am most thankful for two things (okay, maybe it’s really four things!) — my three beautiful children and my amazing girlfriend. With their love and support, I’m finding that all things are possible, and I honestly have no idea how I would manage to do anything without any of them. <3 Loves of my life, all

Noooooo! Not the Toes!

Sweet blissful sleep. All wrapped up warm and cozy in my bed, with dreams of my love running through my head. Sweet, sweet, blissful sleep. Then all of a sudden there’s this odd sensation that tears me away from it all! Nooooo! Not the toes! Dang dog! Why on earth does she do that? It’s so gross. Oh, look! She left her foot out for me, I think I’ll just lay here and lick her toes until she wakes up!  I totally wanted to try to sleep in this morning. By sleep in, I mean until eight or nine. Didn’t

Election Day 2012

Today I’ll be gritting my teeth and heading out to my polling place. Gritting my teeth because I’m not fully behind either of the presidential candidates, but I’m more against one than the other, so that’s going to direct my vote. Not my preference, really, but at least there are lower level choices to be made that I can be a little more confident about. The kids had a mock election in school yesterday. When I got home last night, they asked if I was going to go vote today and I said yes.  I was a little floored by

Oh, Sandy! The Saga Continues

Day four without electric or cable utilities. About to start going insane! Grateful everyone I love and care about weathered the storm well. 🙂 Yesterday I ventured out in search of a store that was not only open and able to do credit/debit transactions, but also had milk on their shelves! That was a pretty interesting trip. In town was pretty much dead and not a single store was open. Traffic lights were all out and parking lots were vacant. We saw lots of downed trees, roots and all, and broken branches everywhere. Clearly, our area collected more damage from
