Jinxed and shitty

So I jinxed us.  We were on a streak of healthy bodies and gainful employment and something that actually resembled a normal routine and then The Boy started complaining about his mouth hurting.

Awards and lists

I love award season.  There is something about all these people who are dedicated to their profession who get together and honor one another for a job well done.  I think that if it was a high fa-lutin’ it with the millions of dollars in jewelry and gowns that make poor Jennifer Lawrence fall down, it wouldn’t be so special.

Final Thoughts on Friday

Finally its here.   We made it.  I had my doubts but finally, after all this time, Friday is here.  I don't want to jinx anything or anything, but The Boy has been healthy for like four weeks straight, which means I have been working four weeks straight.

Scabs and Scars

Lets talk a bit about being vulnerable.  Based on its constant recurrence in my life it is apparently a theme I need to explore.

Books, books, and more books

There is an organization called the VNSA who have a annual book sale out at the county fair grounds.  Thankfully it is not the livestock building because that's where the Tattoo Expo was, obviously.

Final Thoughts on Friday

1.  Looking forward to my vacation from motherhood tomorrow.  Juanito has plans for him and The Boy starting tomorrow morning which will take him through to the end of his nap.  I'm very excited just to be able to run errands without thinking about how will he do in that store or how much driving around in the car can I subject a three-year old to before he falls asleep and I completely ruin nap.  So look out dry cleaning, Target, and thrift stores!  I'm coming for ya.

2. The Gallon challenge I started for Lent is killing my productivity at work.  I'm thinking of just taking my laptop into the bath and setting up shop in there.  On the plus side my ring move freely on my fingers these days so score one for flushing out the system.

3. Mares eat oats and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy.  Ewes eat ivy too, wouldn't you.  For how many who just read that is that little diddy stuck in your head?  You're welcome.

4. Spring is coming!  Spring is coming!  The sun is setting later and rising earlier.  The temperatures are rising too.  I want to update my wardrobe for the coming season but know that its a little to spendy.  But soon grasshopper.  Soon we will be better financially, sturdier?  Is that a concept?  If not I'm making it one.  I have mentally bought so many thing I can stand it!  I'm looking forward to really purchasing things and bringing them home.  Into my house!!

Love Stories

One of my favorite questions to ask people who have been with their partner for a long time is, “do you remember the moment when you knew you loved them?”  It’s not the grand story of how they met or even how they fell in love.  Those stories could go on and on and on.  Believe me, as a story teller I’m a wordy bitch who can take FOR.EVER to tell a story.  But this question is just a snap shot of the love story.  I love the randomness of different stories.

Final Thoughts on Friday

I have struggled this week with what to write about since I'm not focusing on the TTCing.  hence the slow-down in the posting.

Family Tree

I think that I have mentioned in the past that my dad comes from a large family.  He is the youngest of seven; six boys and one girl.

Final Thoughts on Friday

This is my 200th post!  Isn't that kinda exciting?

It takes the Internet....

I'm looking for some advice from the other parents out there.  Here's the issue....

We were on a break!

So I read through my post for the past few months and I realized that my posts have been heavy on the fertility and the doom and gloom.  Since we've decided to take a break from the medication, I will give you all a break from my bemoaning every little aspect of TTCing.  Its been a lonely trek and I appreciate this outlet.  Thank you! 

Commence the fun posts!
