so it’s been a bit…

so it’s been a bit…

Yes, I sort of fell off the blogging wagon for a bit. Life got chaotic for awhile… work, writing, pain issues, and then an unexpected move on short notice with about five days to complete the move. The latter was super fun, I say sarcastically. It’s been a week and a half since we officially […]

It’s been a year…

It’s been a year…

It has been almost a year since I last blogged and so much has changed since then.  I haven’t posted about this since last October in this post, but that was really the beginning of it all.  My heart can’t take going through all of it right now, but read that post and you will […]

What’s really been going on with me…

What’s really been going on with me…

So, it has been pretty obvious that there has been some stuff going on with me for the last several months, especially if you follow me on Facebook.  It hasn’t been my story to tell so I had to deal on the down low, which hasn’t been easy.  It has also probably overburdened those I could tell. […]

Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living and Learning I am a big believer in trying to find a silver lining or lesson in everything that happens in life.  That’s my way of trying to make something good of situations and experiences that are often anything but good.  Sometimes those lessons are positive; sometimes they aren’t.  But there is always something to […]


Anniversaries  and Army life

Anniversaries and Army life

I think that Army marriages should have some kind alternative numbering system.  I wrote a status about our anniversary on Sunday, joking about how rarely we are together for it.  Counting this year, we have been together for exactly one half of our anniversaries.  The balance is starting to tip in our favor! I mapped […]

Saying goodbye…

Saying goodbye…

This weekend was pretty awful.  We had to say goodbye to our beloved Steer this weekend.  In January, he came down with something that no one could diagnose.  Extreme weight loss and what seemed to be rather extreme dementia and personality change.  In the last several days, it seemed as if his lungs had begun […]

When do I get to be excited?

When do I get to be excited?

This pregnancy hasn’t been as much fun as I would like it to be.  Unexpected, yes, but not as much fun.  I am happy about it, but not as excited as I would like to be.  I am finding it hard to really get excited, for a bunch of reasons.  And I really want that […]

The good and the bad…

The good and the bad…

The good… Well, the telling of the children went well!  I told Donovan who responded with a series of “OMG, OMG, OMG” before calming down.  For the younger three, Corey set the stick down on the table and acted like he found it in the trash and somebody was in trouble!  They sat in stunned silence […]
