I have always hated the idea of calling a divorced family "broken". I recognize that not every child gets a fairly calm experience when their parents divorce, but I did. I do not remember my parents ever being married. Never have I felt unloved by my mother or father. I have never felt like a… Continue reading Me With My Family
If you ask me who I am, I would tell you that I am an all or nothing kind of person. When I love, I keep loving until there is nothing left of me. I will drop everything for a person I care about. You need money? Look at that, I got you. You need… Continue reading Safety Nets

I'm going to see my in-laws soon! This is going to be a fun time because Bug really hasn't gotten to meet that side of the family yet. Most of my siblings and my parents live in this state with me.

It's been a while since I've written a blog post that isn't a review and is just a simple update of my life. Not that my life is anything exciting. It isn't. Well, I've been going through therapy every two weeks to battle my anxiety and obviously it's been doing well. I'm still alive and… Continue reading Reading, Writing, And Bug… A Boring Update
Everyone knows what it means to be potty trained. It's a symbol of growth; a kind of gateway to the bigger things. When the diapers come off and the big boy or girl pants come on, you are officially a kid going to adulthood. My little boy is starting to be interested in the potty.… Continue reading It is Okay.
Hello, all! I wish that I could say that today has been a very eventful day, but it's kind of hard to place doing the dishes and reading as "eventful". However, something great has happened. My little boy is conjuring up sentences! I was giving a choice of shirts for him to wear and he… Continue reading “That One”

But, really, I'll blame that I was going through Husband Withdrawl (luckily, it wasn't the catatonic annoying withdraw that Bella had when Edward… Continue reading Five Days And Counting!
Our little one year old is a lover of books. Every time he's at his toy chest, the first thing he pulls out isn't a toy; it's a book. His two favorites? HOOPER HUMPERDINK? NOT HIM, and FIVE BUSY DUCKLINGS. I think it has to do with the rhyming. To be honest, they are my… Continue reading Buggy is a Bookworm
I haven't blogged in a while, but I thought it'd be great to give you a mini-update of my life. Well, my husband is deployed. It's just me and Bug right now, but all is good. The missing isn't as great anymore. I still miss William, it's just not as debilitating. It's probably because I've… Continue reading It’s Been A While
