Life has been busy, but I am currently on vacation which has been wonderfully lazy. I’ve spent most of the week listening to books, loafing and doing some crochet. Been nice to not have to work or rush around. The weather has been crappy. The ice has been evil, makes the roads crappy to drive on. Luckily I haven’t really had to go anywhere. Well, done some travelling but has been local. Read the rest of this entry


For the Love of Dragon

On this day, a little Dragon hatched out and came into our lives. From the first, she was an amazing and beautiful creature. Over the years, she has grown into a fierce wyrmling that I am proud to know; even prouder to call my daughter. Thank you, Dragon, for being all that you are.

Piggie Update 100115

Happy Birthday, Frog! I love you and I hope your house has stopped leaking.

Well, I saw the doctor about my swollen lymph nodes.  Well, he doesn’t think that is the cause of my abdomen pain either. Sigh. It’s always something else. He thinks it is either the IBS or that I have food allergies. I’m not sure how it could be the IBS when I haven’t had an attack in a while. You’d think the (more…)

Piggie Update 042615

Things have been as busy as ever. I had this week off from work and L had it off from school. Didn’t get to spend as much time with her as I would like since I had appointments every day. Seems like I am never home. But that isn’t true. I have been home and have been able to spend time with both Eric and L. We’ve been playing Alien: Isolation for the PlayStation 4. I’ve really been loving it. Read the rest of this entry

Not all the things to get done, but the being awake during the day and then working on nights. Swinging back and forth between days and nights can be really hard. Ok, enough whining.

Alright, so it’s my birthday. And that makes me 34. No promises on how the posting will go the next few days. I have no idea what the family has planned. I am at their mercy. Which may or may not leave time for writing… Read the rest of this entry

Monkey’s Birthday

I’d like to take a few minutes to celebrate the blessings that have come into my life through the amazing man that I have the benefit of being married to. He tends to be a quiet man that can easily blend into the background, but he is amazing. His is a life that is worth modeling your own after. A life of kindness, compassion and love.

Not sure when I wrote my last update, but it seems that it has been a while…

So, my kid has turned 15. How the fuck does that happen? I’m sure I’m not old enough for her to be 15 already. Sigh. Where does time go? Despite time being a bandit, I am blessed. We have a beautiful daughter that is smart, funny and has a good heart. There really isn’t much more a parent could want from a kid. Read the rest of this entry
