Every year it's the same thing. Try to find something I won't suck at and make it my resolution for the coming year. Over the years it's gone something like this: I promise to lose weight, to fit into size 8 jeans again, give up chocolate, try not to drink so much Diet Coke, and make millions. And thus by continually putting myself in these positions I am always setting myself up for painful failure. The kind of failure that makes my teeth hurt.
Even when I was young and understood…Continue

Tonight the boys have been playing and fighting on & off. One minute they're playing quietly and the next moment the younger two have been
running to me and complaining about their older brother.
There is no doubt my oldest is my baddest and most…

In the spirit of the holidays, today's Blog entry focuses on PLAY. Many of us struggle during this season with children whose sensory issues can not take in all the activities, noises and smells of the season. In short, they seem to find it difficult to play.
A while back, Melitsa from Play-Activities contacted me about her site. I checked it out and…Continue

Damn the holidays. My yo-yo weight is cycling downward once again, but it's not happening nearly fast enough. I can only get my cute velvet party pants up to my knees, which spells Christmas trouble with a capital T. Christmas is not the same without my party pants. Last week I was finally reduced to purchasing a fluffy black turtleneck from the Gap to hide my gigantic ass. My self-esteem is spiraling downward at a rapid clip which sounds much like BB gun fired right at my eye.

My son's teacher, and our good friend, suffered a major stroke earlier in the school year. His recovery is slow but steady. He's an amazing man. His wife is an inspiration to all of us as we individually deal with our own challenges. Almost every day, Judy writes on her husband's Care Page, letting all of their family and friends know what major or minor progress Kim made since the last time she posted. Today, at the bottom of her update, Judy…Continue

Being a single mom living with my parents is wearing on me. I know I will get used to it but I get lonely, especially when i am PMSing. (which duh, is normal anway) This is not how I dreamed it. i wanted to have a baby with a man who would love me until the end of time. i wanted to put the baby down at night and stay up watching movies and cuddling with my hubby. I miss sleeping with someone at night, i miss the warmth. I feel like the dating scene will be so much more…Continue
This is the first time I can remember in 100 years when we went to get a Christmas tree and it was easy. We hadn't really picked a time to go get one this year. We usually do it around the first week of December, "around" being a loose term for "when mommy and daddy feel up to it." There have been some years when the snow has been 17 feet high and we can barely make out the tree branches, which are usually stuck together in a circular mess, needles frozen to heaven and other years where it…Continue

...a poem to kick off my very first post. I think this blog will do wonders for my insanity. Being able to vent without paying a stranger one-hundred dollars makes me smile. I will just vent to one-hundred perfect strangers for FREE!
my journal is lined with pages of my past, my present, and hopes of my future.
everyday writing my story page by page, line by line
days go by, i go on living, weeks go by, i still keep breathing,
years go by my heart…

My husband and I watched the Colts/Jaguars football game Sunday afternoon. (big Peyton Manning fan here!) During the first quarter there were three challenges to the officials’ calls. Most games don’t even have one, but three during the first quarter seemed unusual.
A challenge can be made if the coach disagrees with a call. If the call is reversed, then it’s good for the challengers. If it stands, the challenging coach loses a time out in addition to whatever disadvantage the call…Continue
