I am surrounded by boys!

When Sarah and James were smaller, I was surrounded by girls.  My bestest good friend, Cricket, had 4 girls and James was usually the only boy when we were together.  I like girls, well for the most part anyway.  I mean, I’m a girl.  I can relate to girls.  There were Barbi’s and Cabbage Patch…

Office gossip: he’s just not into it

The end of my contract last week has launched David and I into a bit of unknown territory. For the first time in our marriage, we’re both self-employed. This means there’s no steady pay-check, we’re both working from home and we’re churning through coffee like it’s going out of style. We’re still working through some…

A Backup on the Halloween Highway

Having three of the five kids home sick for nearly a week really put a halt on household productivity.  As a result, things are still moving at a slow crawl as I attempt to steer this bus back into the fast lane. With only 4 days to go until Halloween, 2 of the kids are…

Pumpkin Land

Well despite our fear that we would not make it to any of our usual fall activities this year, we did manage to find the time and energy (and good weather too I suppose) to make it out to Whittamore’s Farm to visit their pumpkin land! We have been going to Whittamore’s farm for 5…

It’s a common scene these days, Danny sitting in his chair…

I’ve started spotting

Just before going to the toilet this morning, I thought to myself “I was this far along when I miscarried in 2005″… I wiped – and realised I had started spotting.  Naturally I freaked out, burst into tears – I told Jason what was happening and he was wonderful, held me while I cried, talked…

Missing my girl

Several weeks ago Sarah decided that she wanted to stay with her boyfriend.  She has gradually moved most of her things out of the house.  Little by little it’s gone and her room looks like, well not her room.  And she’s not here.  At first it was sort of nice.  Sarah is very temperamental and can…

Selective reduction…hmmmm.

I just finished reading some HORRIBLE comments on a blog. H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E. Absolutely evil. How can people be so cruel when a family is grieving the loss of their children? I just don’t get it. No parent should ever lose a child. This is coming from someone that came *THIS CLOSE* to losing her son. (DISCLAIMER:…
