Fun New Fact

Aidan is terrified of trash bags.

Yeah, I don't understand it either.

As always, lolcats have managed to make me snort something out my nose.

Prayers please

My good friend Mo has cancer. She's been battling it for a few years now, but the doctors have recently told her that nothing more can be done.

Mo and her family have stood by my side through some of my roughest times, and some of the best, and I love them dearly.

Even though you may not know her, any and all thoughts and prayers you could direct towards her would be really appreciated by me.

Thank you.

They come in 3s

This morning I called the vet and left word, Arrow is acting oddly.

Last night at some point there was a major water main break and we're now without water.

I don't know what the third thing is but I'm really hoping it can wait until Wednesday when Andy's back home again.

Dun Dun Duhhh

I'm off this weekend to my 10 year reunion...for college...How on earth did I get to be that old?

I'm very much looking forward to it though. St. Mary's is beautiful and I love getting down there to see it. I miss those sunsets!

There's going to be a homebrewing seminar with tasting, at 10:30 AM on Saturday. Ahhh! Good old St. Mary's. I wish I knew if anyone's kept up the "Easter Boh-nny" tradition? If it was closer to home I'd do it myself.

Most of my old friends won't be there unfortunately, but my best friend will be (Yay T!!!). And the two most important people in my life will be in the same car with me of course!

I really want to see Stuart's spot again, and show it to Aidan. It's always been such a nice spot for me and Andy and it's all the more meaningful now. It will be a good mix of happy and sad I think.

Is it odd I've missed the place almost as much as the people who used to fill it?

More to come on Monday, and Happy Father's Day y'all!

6 Months!!!

Aidan is half a year old today! It's so wonderful, I can barely stand it.

Yesterday, for the very first time he rolled from his back to his belly. The inspiration? Me laying on the floor saying "come get me." After he got it all figured out he just kept rolling back and forth, back and forth. And looking to me after every time, as if to say "Mommy, this is a fun new game! Why didn't you tell me before?"

We also tried our very first vegetable yesterday. Sweet peas. I'm not a fan of peas unless it's split pea soup, and really then you're just eating ham that the peas sort of walked by. Aidan seems to share my point of view.

More than anything I imagined being a mom is incredibly hard. It's so much harder than I thought it would be, on me, on our relationship, on our poor dog, and I knew it would be hard. On the job training is never easy.

But I can't imagine doing anything else. Aidan fills me with such joy every day. He's filled mine and Andy's life with love, and laughter and it's only going to get more and more rewarding. I know we're all going to make it through the rough places and come out on the other side loving each other all the more for it. That's the best part of my new job.

The perks rock.
