A few days ago my husband and I were talking in bed before the start of a new day. The topic turned to that fear of not having control over things like the well being of your child or a loved ones safety. I told my husband how sometimes I’ll be dropping off our daughter… Continue reading Goodbye friend
This is probably one of the most unrestful nights I’ve had – although I’m sure more will follow that will make this one look pretty darn good in comparison. Today is the start of my 36th week of pregnancy. I went to bed at 10:30pm and then was awakened by discomfort and a full bladder… Continue reading Restless in Santa Ana

Plus making sure all… Continue reading When a difficult day ends really darn well
Last night was filled with singing, eating, dancing, and just plain wonderful fun as we gathered for our Staff Christmas party!! This year one of our awesome volunteers opened her home to us and invited us to celebrate our party at her beautiful home. I was in awe of the place as I walked in.… Continue reading Laughter, Memories, and Karaoke

All things considered, I think I’m a bit smaller this time around then I… Continue reading I’ve swallowed a wrecking ball
