Reconciliation

November 8, 2010

A recent post by Kris over at Pretty All True really struck a chord with me… A rotten day.  One irritation after another, like fingernails on the chalkboard.  Hormonal?  Possibly.  Tired?  Probably.  In need of something I am not aware of?  Likely. This scenario is always the same. Experiencing and coping with my day...

Date Night

November 3, 2010

Scott sits down at the table with his coffee and cereal. We attempt a conversation, which consists of half-sentences broken up by Hayden’s demands for attention. “Read me this book, Mommy.” “I will, after I finish my cereal.” We exchange a few more words, mostly about his work, or the course of Hayden’s latest...

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

October 25, 2010

Okay, so there weren’t any bears.  Just lions and tigers.  Or maybe just lions.  Big ones, with strong shoulders and hungry jaws, all with a common mission to eat me.  This is a recurring dream I have, and it visited me again last night. In my dreams, I am always in a civilized setting-...

God Doesn’t Make Mistakes

God Doesn’t Make Mistakes

I am following in the footsteps of many and posting on something of utmost importance.  Although I have wanted to write openly about this for awhile, I am here with conflicting emotions. With a heavy heart, because I am saddened by the recent loss of five teenagers and by how the people of our...

And They Will Know Us By the Length Of Our Toes

October 6, 2010

After another failed attempt to feed my child refried beans and cheese, I think, “How can we possibly share the same genes?”  when we have so many differences. Like his fear of the swing, when I spent countless hours of my childhood swinging as high as the tree branches, and Scott thrives on flying...

With This Ring…

August 20, 2010
With This Ring…

It all began with a romance that was as giddy as it was contented.  They not only got each other, they understood each other.  Soon they were completing each others’ sentences, and it was no surprise to all who know them both that Sister Number One and Mr. C decided to get married. I...

A Sappy Speech, or a Room Full of Toeginas?

August 10, 2010

Here I sit, at my computer, writing to you all while I dry the tears from my face.   As The Matron, I will be giving a toast to my Sister Number One and her lucky fiancee at their rehearsal dinner this weekend.  I picked up my pen and paper to make some notes,...

The Recap

July 12, 2010

I want to thank you all for the kind words of understanding you sent after I went on and on about how unsettled I was about leaving town.  After my first trip away from my family, first time to host a bachelorette party, and first time in a long time to not barf on...

Just Go Back To Texas, Mommy

July 8, 2010

I have a few butterflies in my tummy today.  Butterflies that will turn to borderline nausea tomorrow when I have to fly across four states in a filthy, freezing, turbulent, claustrophobic airplane.  I hate flying.  I do it several times a year, but it never gets any easier.  I will deal. The good part...

Yeah… Like, So?

June 27, 2010

I’m all, “I have cramps I started my period and it’s all heavy.” Scott’s like, “Will you go get me a beer?” And I’m all,” Maybe you didn’t hear me.” But really I was like, “We only have two.” And he was all, “So.” And I’m all thinking maybe two won’t cut it. And...

Antics

Antics

Seven years.  This is how long I’ve been married.  There have been hurdles along the way, but as I sit here, on our seventh anniversary, I can’t really remember what they were.  Because life with my husband flows along so naturally- he is a patient, hardworking husband and father- and he likes to have...

Now, Hear This

May 8, 2010

My husband and I met, and fell in love, playing music together. While we don’t rock it out like we used to because Hayden gets jealous, we have tied to instill in him a love and appreciation for music. His choices sometimes humor me and sometimes annoy me (I can only listen to so...

The “Momover”… It’s Like 12 Step, Part 2

April 30, 2010

So, as I was saying, I seriously needed some therapy.  I have been in therapy before, during a completely different time in my life.  I really gained from it then and was looking forward to “the work.”  I found a great, female MFT who was recommended by one of my Yahoo mommy groups.  I...
