Saturday Randomness

I’m rapidly approaching the 3rd week since surgery. I can’t believe it has been 3 weeks already! I think back and remember the intense anxiety I had, just 3 weeks ago. Now, it’s all behind me. I still have some tenderness, I’m still easily fatigued, no heavy lifting, etc. But, I really am on the […]

An Apology

I’m sorry I haven’t been reading, commenting, posting much, etc. I didn’t realize just how much this surgery would whip my butt. I feel tired, to the point of laziness. I have no energy to even get online most of the time. Believe it, it’s true! Or if I do, I just read email and […]

Parents.com Toy and Product Recall Finder

The one hobby (if you can call it that) that I enjoy more than surfing the internet is reading. As a mom, I often find that I’m short on time, so reading a novel or other lengthy book isn’t always in my schedule. (unless I’m on bedrest following surgery! I’ve completed two books and numerous […]

Netbooks, anyone?

I’m looking into buying one of those mini laptops called a netbook. Do any of you have one? Or do you know someone who does? What do you think about it? Should I spend the money on something like that? I appreciate any and all comments regarding this subject!

As ok as I am with that…I’m not ok with this….

Why do I struggle with the medical treatment Hope needs? From braces to therapies, I feel like when faced with each new development, I want to grab her and run and hide. I want to yell at all the doctors that her CP isn’t THAT bad, what are they doing? Don’t they see that she […]

I think I’m going to make it….thoughts post op

Seriously. I may actually be able to survive. My surgery was blissfully uneventful. I had everyone involved a complete and total nervous wreck. I basically died when I had Jonathan and the doctors brought me back with CPR. I knew why I almost died. I have a very difficult time being intubated. So, we planned […]

Honest Scrap

Dana over at From Chaos to Grace tagged me for this award. (I was tagged before but forgot to put the award on my page, whoops!) So rather than cutting and pasting the answers I gave before, I figured I’d just do it again. I may repeat myself, but I also may share more honest […]

A Busy Day Ahead

I have a brief moment while I’m sitting here listening to Hope quote a Dora episode WORD FOR WORD, to briefly put my Sunday plans down so my head isn’t so jumbled. 🙂 Jenna and I went to the mall yesterday and spent over 5 hours just walking around, talking, visiting with one another and […]

Fun Program for Little Ones

As many of you may know, I plan to homeschool my youngest, Hope. Hope is only 2.5 now, but she is already SO smart. Yes, I realize parents say that about their children, and I’m biased, but others have mentioned this too. While her expressive speech is delayed, her receptive is advanced. Her understanding is […]
