Long December in 2017

I feel like I try to be honest with myself and others. Especially in the ‘blog world’....its a bit more candid than real life encounters. If I gathered a guess, much of my bloggings this year are...

Fa La Lousy in 2017

I refuse to open this text box again without writing anything substantial. This past Sunday Fiona, my mom, and I went to see Night Before Christmas. It was a cute spin directed toward a child aud...

Lets'ee in 2017

Type. Delete. Type. Delete. Some coherency would be great. I am a wordy person, yet I cant seem to get into the flow lately (anymore? I hope not!) Someone give me a crash course on posting photos...

Thankfully in 2017

Thanksgiving has come and gone. And in true fashion with other big dates, the anticipation of the holiday was much worse than the day itself. Im not always sure why the cloud of dread looms overh...

Mixed Bag in 2017

I’ve opened this browser far too many times without writing anything. Lots on my mind with not much to say for it. I’ve been busy around the house. Most recently, I painted a section of our rec r...

Oops in 2017

Busy day. My dad came over for lunch and to visit. He was signed up to be a Mystery Reader at Fiona’s school today. Its actually pretty cute. You sign up, pick a book, and are asked to dress lik...

Classroom Helper in 2017

This morning I got to visit my daughter’s classroom and help the teacher. I took students out one-by-one to count. Forwards from x-y, backwards from x-y. One at a time, we sat together at a desk ...

Ten Thirty-three in 2017

Just now I paused Orion’s show and told him he could finish it once he was dressed for the day. He rolled around on the couch a bit and I sat there waiting for him to dress. Currently, he’s aslee...

Edgy in 2017

My anxiety seems to be back up, no specific reason. The other day I had terrible painful back cramps. I thought for sure Aunt Flo was on her way. Nah. My back was screaming a bit earlier today. B...

Lake Effect Snow in 2017

Clear and dry here, but Matt works right off Lake Michigan and its already accumulating. I think snow is about the only redeeming thing about winter. Im not a cold weather kinda gal. But I love (...

No, thanks in 2017

A few people now have pulled to my attention that Facebook has a way to block certain dates or date ranges from your memories ‘on this day’. Something that I believe is indeed helpful to some los...

NJM 7 (Opposite Day) in 2017

Write about how 24 hours of your life using opposites. For example, if you’re a female, write about that day as a male. Today we were all up with the first alarm. Within minutes, the kids were ...

Word Waste in 2017

Snippets of the crazy in my head, mostly because getting it out usually quiets it down. I’m not the best version of myself. I’d say I’m better than MeCirca Late 2015…But I feel like its been a s...

Sushi on Sundays in 2017

No, not every Sunday (in fact, the last time we had sushi was months and months ago). But we both love sushi. Fiona, too. My mom called last night and kidnapped my kids for the afternoon. We’re d...

Fambly in 2017

Its been a busying sort of day today, mixed with the perfect amount of lounging. With daylight savings, we are letting the kids stay up for a while. Operation: hope they sleep in tomorrow. Fiona ...

#Prosebox (NJM2) in 2017

Gonna throw this out there now. We have teacher conferences tonight and I might not have time otherwise. It would be fab if prosebox had interest groups. Or hashtags. Or something similar that al...

NJM 1 in 2017

Five words I would use to describe myself: Critical Creative Stuck Stubborn Nurturing The first two words came easily, and I struggled with the last three. Also, my list would have looked very si...

Humbug in 2017

I’ve sat here for the better part of two weeks trying to formulate words to mark the closing of October. The end of infant loss awareness month. I’ve got nothing poignant. My baby is gone and it ...

Blue Raspberry Hair in 2017

I have blue raspberry hair. The topmost layers are a turquoise, and the bottom is fuchsia. The turq is a little more drab than I was hoping, but I also should have lifted the remaining (old) colo...

Untitled in 2017

Truth be told, I think about you a lot. More than I let on. Speak about. Write about. Every future occasion holiday and even the lazy do nothing days. I have to stop to catch my breath as each f...

Locomotion in 2017

I feel as if tides are shifting right now. I guess thats been one of the funny things about grief…I’ve had a few revelations and realizations, intermixed with chaos and darkness. Up and down. Ove...

Five Years in 2017

Five years ago we married. I walked down the aisle as tornado sirens went off outside. We were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony, but Mother Nature had other plans and (thankfully!) the venue ...

Need to Write in 2017

Well, Chicago weather has finally realized its fall. Its my favorite season. Colors, sweaters, bonfires, cocoa. Bring it on. Im not one of the pumpkin spice crazed people though. That, I could ta...

The More You Know in 2017

Fiona’s reading now, which is pretty cool to see. I’m pretty sure she’s had the tools to do it for a while now. But she needed the confidence to do it. Every day she brings a book from school to ...
