Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies

These past few days have been a bit of an eye opener for me. I felt alone and cried over some stupid things. I felt like a failure as a mother because my daughter keeps having stomach issues, but after realizing that IF she has Celiac… I am not to blame. I know people who have it and contamination happens. Today I spoke to … Read More Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies

Adjusting to a 2 dog household

It’s not as hard as I thought it would be. But it’s also not easy. It’s like having an extra child…. Who pees outside. Ranger is a good dog. That I am 100% sure of. Why his owner had to get rid of 3 dogs…. I don’t know. But I’m glad we found Ranger. He is older than the shelter said he was… They … Read More Adjusting to a 2 dog household

We went to Yellowstone!

Well our vacation is officially over. My family and I went to Yellowstone and the Grand Teton! We stayed in Island Park, Idaho for 10 days, and traveled up to the West Yellowstone entrance less than 30 minutes away. We had fun in the snow (yes winter hit early), and we had fun sight seeing! This was my first trip up north to those … Read More We went to Yellowstone!

Regret

I don’t have many fears. I am not afraid of heights, or going too fast. But I fear regretting something for the rest of my life. Making a decision that will live with me forever… you can’t turn back time. I don’t regret many things I have done. I don’t regret meeting my ex…my son’s father. With out meeting him, with out his lies… … Read More Regret

Lillian is 18 months old!

Time flies when you are having fun being a mom. My daughter turned 18 months old yesterday and I still cannot believe how fast time is going by. I really do feel like she was born only a few months ago, but she is in fact a toddler now. She is almost walking (some of you know about her occupational therapy she gets a … Read More Lillian is 18 months old!

Custody arrangements

I have my son 11 months out of the year, which is amazing. But this month is the one month of the year that he visits his father in Indiana. (We live in New Mexico, so it’s pretty far.) It’s always hard to send my child off to see his father. I appreciate the fact that his father does see him in the summers … Read More Custody arrangements

Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

It’s irritating when people try to bring you down. It’s even more irritating when you realize you have been letting certain people make a negative impact in your life for far too long, with out speaking up for yourself, or the ones you love. I make it fairly obvious that I suffer from MDD (major depressive disorder) and a social anxiety disorder. Don’t let … Read More Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

What’s up?

Yes I have been gone for a few weeks. I know, I know. But I had good reason for this. First of all – if you read my past posts you will have seen that we had two deaths in the family, first my husband’s grandmother passed away suddenly, and then my own grandmother passed away less than two weeks later. In the midst … Read More What’s up?

Death and Funerals

While it has only been two weeks since my husband’s grandmother passed away, my own grandmother has also passed away as well a few days ago. I was told a week ago that my father’s mother had broken her hip, and working in healthcare, I knew at her age that she may not have long to live. So rest in peace grandma, her pain … Read More Death and Funerals

Dealing with Depression

This past month has been full of ups and downs. This past year has been full of a lot of joy, but also some losses as well. Last year we lost my husband’s uncle, and this year we lost his grandma. I am dealing with switching my son over to home schooling, and changes in my work. I work less than part time now … Read More Dealing with Depression

Losing a loved one today

Last week I made a post about having to deal with family stuff, and today things came to an end. My husband’s grandmother passed away at the hospital today. She was one of the first people to welcome me into this family and I am feeling a great loss here. Not only is my friend gone, but my children’s great grandmother is gone from … Read More Losing a loved one today

That’s life -quick post

This week has been a bit emotional for my family. My husband’s grandmother has been in the hospital for a few weeks and things went south last night when she had a reaction to something the hospital gave her and they had to do CPR on her. Later in the day she was unresponsive. A bit ago, I heard from my MIL that she … Read More That’s life -quick post
