BethI've been married to Chris since April of 2004. We have 3 young children and another on the way; Anthony Nathaniel who was born August 2004, Anastasia Fae who was born August 2006, David Cillian who was born July 2008, and Baby Charlie Vincent who is due May 2010. Chris is currently serving the United States Air Force and I'm a stay at home mom. Eventually I plan to go back to school and become an IBCLC. In October 2008 I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder, and have been battling that since. Every day is a struggle but with my family by my side, and my friends to lean on I make it through.

Baby is a little troublemaker!

The reason I haven’t posted is I didn’t want to relay bad news. On July 4th, I went to the ER after three days of light pink bleeding. On the 4th, it picked up a bit and became clots, but was still light pink in color or brown – no bright red, thank goodness! But…

Exhausted

It’s amazing how quickly this pregnancy is taking the life out of me. I’ve never been tired this early before. I guess your body reacts quicker when you’ve had so many kids. I know I promised a blog post about the desk, and I will deliver sometime this week/weekend. Today the clinic confirmed the pregnancy….

And Baby Makes 5!

Thats right! We are pregnant again! I’m due between March 3rd and March 7th, making me 3 weeks 4 days to 4 weeks 1 day pregnant – so still very early. I am very excited but also quite calm this time around. We let Anthony read the test to the kids, and he was so…

On my wall

Tomorrow, I shall reveal my nearly complete office space. I love it, it’s a place all my own. It still needs paint, but that won’t happen for a while, so it is what it is until then. I have this poem hanging on the wall, and I love it. I need it to remind me…

Laying it all out

I am the mother of a child with Aspergers and a Mood Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (NOS). I have hesitated to post anything about this. Thus far, I have only shared this with family (so they can have medical history for their children) and close close friends. I have this rule where I don’t post…

Vacation!

The reason I haven’t been posting on here is we went on a week long vacation trip to the Black Hills! It was our first family vacation, the first time I’ve been camping and the second time I’ve been to the Black Hills. The first time I was only 8 so I have very vague…

Tortillas

For years, I’ve been trying over and over to make homemade tortillas with very little success. They always turned out like a big cracker. It was quite depressing, as tortillas are my all time favorite comfort food. I remember eating my nana’s homemade tortillas as a young child. So delicious. Then my friend Elaine sent…

Gratitude

I have found myself being more negative than I like lately. We have a small (large?) family crisis situation that we are dealing with that is too personal to put out there on the internet, and it’s wearing me down. I have this rule where I will never speak ill of my husband or my…

Kitchen switch-a-roo

Today I completely switched around my kitchen, also known as “driving my husband completely banana’s”. Chris HATES change and complains about it incessantly. However, the next time I change it around he’ll complain that he wants it back the way before – which he also complained about. My kitchen appears to have a bit of…

I got my Mixer!

For years, I have been lusting after a KitchenAid Mixer. I tried, for a long time, to be as self sufficient as possible. Then I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and I had to stop doing a lot of self reliant activities – such as bread making. I loved making bread, and I was really…
