In a state of mourning

June 7, 2013

When my husband came home after his interview, he had an extra bounce in his step. He was excited in a way that I hadn’t seen in a long time. I felt a huge lump in the back of my throat, similar to the one I have today. This last week Adam stayed home, he is in between his old […]

The Third

May 29, 2013

It was bound to happen. I guess it could’ve been worse? It wasn’t like I forgot him in a hot car or something really dangerous. He was left in good hands, but it’s the fact that I totally 100% forgot! At Drew’s t-ball game, Gabby booked it to the park. Despite efforts to scream for her to stop, she continued […]

The Return of Snow Days

May 14, 2013

The worst part of Adam working so close to home, besides the difficulty in maintaining a “relationship” with the gardener ;), was that he never could have a snow day. You may remember how challenging I found our recent day stranded at home due to the snow. Adam is leaving his employment of seventeen years! He was contacted by a […]

A Picture Says a Million Words…part II

May 13, 2013

Girls Night Out

April 18, 2013

Gabby has always been my “right hand man,” or “left hand lady” as the case may be. She and I had an instant bond. Maybe it was because I was able to stay home with her at a young age. Maybe it’s because she’s a girl like me. Or maybe it’s because she has a more mild personality since she’s […]

The Voyage

April 1, 2013

I’m fermished. Fermished is Yiddish for mixed up or messed up, otherwise known as scattered. I keep talking about this redefined normal, also known as my life. It’s kinda like after you get married and you forget to change your name with everything. So all of a sudden you go to do something and it’s messed up because they have […]
