Happy New Year

Nothing much planned in the way of a New Year’s celebration. Hubby works late and I don’t like to party anyway. I plan on having a Meg Ryan movie fest once the kids are in bed. Hope you all have a good one and stay safe.

Where I’m From

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

(Originally published by Nattie on December 30, 2003)
I followed a rabbit trail today. I read Stacey’s Blog which took my to Naomi’s Blog, which took me to this site and this site.
Now I will attempt to define Where I’m From

I am from ink,
from motor oil and coffee black.
I am from Hoosier stock
raised in captivity in the warm California sun and replanted in the soil of my birth.


My next 30 years

I wrote this a few weeks ago and meant to post it before now. I am 30 now, but the sentiment is still the same.
My Next 30 Years
I don’t know why the fact that I’m turning 30 in a few weeks is bothering me so much. Thirty is just a number. It is all relative, right? Maybe it is because I feel older. I’ve gained weight. I’m not as active and the last three years have aged me. I’ve fought one of the hardest battles of my life these last three years–chronic depression.


Yes, I think I feel some sparkle coming back

I was telling my friends that I felt like I’d lost my sparkle. I am not a sparkly person to begin with but I do have a smidge of glitter. Maybe just a glimmer, but I felt like this latest bout of medication changes totally wiped my sparkle away. I think it is coming back. Or it could be the Mountain Dew.


Some of my Christmas Toys

I got spoiled this Christmas. So did the kids. They got so spoiled that I don’t think I could even list what all they got.
Anna’s favorite toy so far is a cheap little toy cell phone with faux fur case that I got at the dollar store for her stocking. She carries it everywhere and even sleeps with it.
Jonathan is enjoying robots, dragons, dinosaurs and legos. Wes is gazing fondly at his Tony Stewart car and playing the “Lord of the Rings” Xbox game.


Santa came early

My uncle was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident when I was a little girl. He is paralyzed on his right side, unable to work and on disability. His wife left him a few years ago. So he is on the top of some local churches’ charity list.


A mother’s lesson in futility

Friday, June 20th, 2008

(Originally published by Nattie on December 23, 2003)

Don’t touch my baby.
I gave birth to her.
I craddled her in my womb for nine months. I prayed daily, and often hourly, for her safe delivery.

I nursed her.
I rocked her when she was colicky.
I changed her diapers.
I picked out her pretty pink clothes.

I watched her roll over.
I watched her crawl.
I stood anxiously by as she took her first step.

I’ve invested all my heart in her.
Keep your dirty paws off her.
She cut her first tooth gnawing on my fingers. She ate her first solid food from the spoon I held.
She spoke her first word while sitting on my knee.
She is not yours.

You cannot have her.
I am her guardian angel.
Until God sees fit to call her home,
No devil disguised as placenta previa,
or a nuchal cord,
or a heart murmur can have her.
She is mine.

Others may think they have a claim to her and I might relenquish care to them for a moment. But when they are through,
I am here waiting.

I’ll be the one chewing my nails as she goes to kindergarten,
And rides the bus for the first time.
I’ll be the one gripping my chair
when she learns to drive.

I’ll be the one taking pictures of her in a prom dress, cap and gown, and wedding garb.
I may not be giving her away,
But I’ll be the one who gives her “something old”
To hold as she walks down the aisle.

Keep your hands off.
You can’t have her yet.
God is the only one who is allowed to have her…
And I haven’t told him it is okay, yet.

Back from the Doctor

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

(Originally published by Nattie on December 22, 2003)
The official diagnosis: Anna has a cold. Well, I knew that, but the fever worried me. The diagnosis that stopped my heart–heart murmur.
The doctor has never heard one on her before. He wants to recheck her after she is over her cold. I did some checking and some heart murmurs can be caused by fever so I’m feeling a little better. Time will tell. If you think about it, say a prayer for my little doll.
