This Week

*My husband is working odd hours, so the days seem LONG. I don't know how military or single parents do it.

*Dear Amy is still teething. Two teeth in one week means that she is a busy girl. She also wet all over our bed yesterday and exploded her diaper all over the rug today. She had her first taste of food this week (oatmeal cereal) and loved it (that may also be the reason of the diaper explosion)
*I'm hoping to find the new Yankee candle scent "Happy Halloween" somewhere local. The smell of black licorice? Yes, please!

*I'm having a bad week with up and down emotions. Enough said.

*I slept 10 hours last night (not straight through, mind you), it felt delicious. I think I could sleep 10 more though.

*I took my energy out on the laundry room and carpeting on the steps this past weekend. Two bags of junk gone and clean carpeting made me feel better, for a few seconds anyway.


  1. Teething is awful! Thank goodness for some sleep, finally, for you.

  2. Odd hours are the normal in our house and it's never easy. I get used to the routine. Hang in there and keep purging. Cleaning house makes me feel better!

  3. I am sorry beyond words. I lost my mother Feb. 25 and her last words to me on Feb 24 were "I'll see you tomorrow." We had agreed a long time ago when I was ill that if something happened to either of us, we would visit each other in out dreams and we would know it was us communicating because the dream would have a white horse somewhere in the dream. She comes to see me in my dreams and there is always a white horse: sometimes a playground toy, a carousel, a snow globe, but always a white horse. The dreams have always been pleasant, but the worst ones are when I see her face in detail. That's when it saddens me. I guess I can handle it in the abstract but not when it gets personal. I am so sorry. You and your family have been in my prayers more times than I can count. I just couldn't write because I didn't know what to say. I am sorry. I know you miss him but my mom's white horse proves to me that they never really leave as long as they are in our hearts. I am sorry.

  4. Amy is adorable! I am glad that you got some sleep, even if it wasn't straight through. Cleaning and de-cluttering can do wonders for clearing your mind.
