I'm finally ready to write about the Coronavirus. It's been on my mind since things got crazy but my mind was too hectic to express my feelings through words. I've been going through the necessary motions and to be honest I've been mostly scared out of my mind. My girlfriends and I went to Mardi… Continue reading Since the world has shut down
Saturday my biggest boy turned NINE. The time has flown by so fast... I don't really know how to feel about it. He's maturing right in front of me. He counted down almost the whole month until his birthday in typical BJ fashion and he wanted to know if "everyone will know it's his birthday"… Continue reading Chapter 9
Things I wish I could tell you…on your birthday
I miss you. Life has moved forward so much because it had to and sometimes I feel guilty for not standing still... for forgetting the way you smelled. I used to be able to feel your presence when you walked in a room. I loved seeing you walk into a room. I wish I'd known… Continue reading Things I wish I could tell you…on your birthday
Dear Boys, It's been a while since I've written you a letter, so today (Good Friday) I thought I should. BJ...my growing, handsome, strong and resilient boy.... how I love you.

They may be little…but they are so great
I went to Canada a couple of weeks ago and the trip required two layovers and quite a bit of time in the airport. Fun fact about me is I almost always get sick after I travel. This trip was no different. I arrived home on a Monday and was coughing by Tuesday afternoon. By… Continue reading They may be little…but they are so great

The Anxiety Effect
I'm going to be 100% real with you... I suffer from anxiety/depression. It's only affected my life for the past 2 years or so. I'm amazing at masking it but found it harder and harder to do for the past couple of years. The changes were subtle. So subtle that I didn't really realize what… Continue reading The Anxiety Effect
We pray every night. We ask God to cover all that is special to us, we thank him for all of our blessings, and in those prayers we thank God for each other. I can't begin to thank God enough for the blessings that are the both of you. The night before last B2, you… Continue reading My boys
Switching jobs, doing a little dating and celebrating anniversaries… been busy.
Work... I found out about two months ago that my job was going to be moving me to another position. It was a semi lateral move due to a change the company is going through but according to everyone I work with this was going to be the best move for me. My nerves were… Continue reading Switching jobs, doing a little dating and celebrating anniversaries… been busy.
