Yeah, I just bought this….


My Zombie Gnome needed the company…



So much going on…

and not enough time to write about it all in detail…

Work is great, I’m loving my new job. There are challenges to be sure but nothing I can’t handle.

Jack got a new job with a school district so finally he will be getting better benefits, PTO and more regular hours.

My 8 and 10 y.o. nephews are in town visiting from California and staying with us on the weekends. This has definitely been a roller coaster (more on this later).

In addition frying my computer I came home last Thursday and found out my fridge had pooped out, we went without a fridge for a week. But I now have a new shiny fridge 🙂 

School is kicking my butt

It seems like there was more but I can’t remember….


Jack and the Boys

My nephews are in town and I love to watch how awesome my husband is with them. He is so patient and kind and a huge favorite with them. He spent 30 min with one of my nephews today teaching him how electrical circuits worked, it made me a little weak in the knees. There was a time when watching this would have filled me with sadness about how he would have made an amazing father and that I took that away from him with my infertility but these days I honestly can say I’m quite pleased with how things ended up. I may not have given him children but I gave him nephews (his only niece is 26) and because he doesn’t have children it frees up his energy to pour into being a great uncle. He’s happy and the boys are happy… and that makes me happy.

Been Awhile

I have two good excuses for how long its been. One I’ve started school again and am currently working on my research proposal. Yikes! Also my computer died.. I may or may not have spilled an entire gin and tonic on it….. I’ve been borrowing my husbands computer for school work but haven’t had a lot of free computer time, I’ve been keeping up with your blogs on my phone. It does make commenting a challenge. I’ve got lots to write about starting with my nephews from California being in town but I’ll have to write more later. Miss you guys
