I know a lot of wheat/gluten free people; I've noticed that a lot of them eat all the gluten-free substitutes (GF bread, GF cookies, etc). The problem with that? Those gluten-free substitutes are packed with sugar.… Continue

Ok I know it's supposed to be Wordless Wednesday...but I wanted to announce that the Little Monster fit all those shapes himself!! We have worked for hours on this puzzle, over several days. Today he got all those ones you can see above!! I did place them beside the holes, but he put them in! He was so proud. I was so… Continue

The Little Monster had blood tests today.
...pretty much the most heart-breaking experience of my life.
I put numbing patches on his arms so the needle wouldn't hurt...but that wasn't the problem. The problem today was fear. From the moment we stepped foot into the hospital he started screaming. He dug into me like a… Continue

After last week's crushing blow about the Little Monster's development delays, I made a list and went shopping. The Early Intervention Consultant told me to go back to basics and start slowly. So to the basics I went...

This weekend was the Little Monster's 2nd Birthday. We had a Construction Themed party and he was blown away by it! "Wow!" and "Nice!" were the two most common words all weekend (I finally had to take down the decorations today to calm him down!).… Continue

I'm feeling a lot less stressed today...it's amazing what a good night sleep can do for a mind. I still haven't made any definite decisions, but the day started off great - my dad is over installing a digital programmable thermostat for me (the old one was impossible to read and it was always too hot or too cold in here).
Another great thing? It's Friday...which means… Continue

There are some days that seem to drag on forever.
Today* was like that for me.
It felt as if I was on the phone or in a meeting almost constantly from 3pm until now (11:42pm). My last meeting left my house just a short time ago and it left me with more questions than answers.

Let me tell you... dealing with a harassing ex-spouse (or in my case, not-so-ex spouse...since he won't sign the divorce papers) can be emotionally draining.
A year ago, I swore off dating forever. I swore off the opposite sex forever. The fact of the matter is that it just didn't last. Eventually, I realized it wasn't all men that I was trying to… Continue
