Bad Day

This week is a bad week for me as it is.  I am just a hormonal/emotional wreck this week.  I knew it was coming.  Today is just a bad day for me.  I feel like I am on the verge of tears.  Robert has asked if he should come home at noon.  By that time, […]



Weekend Marriage

I have decided that I am not a fan of weekend marriages.  At least not being in one.  May 10-13 Robert was in Green Bay for training.  He came home Thursday night.  We had the weekend together, then I left for DeForest for a week.  I left Monday morning and came back Friday afternoon.  It […]



Life in Fast-Forward

Life seems to be moving in fast forward right now.  In the time span of just over a week, Warren learned to sleep through the night (sorta, but more on that later), eat solids, crawl, popped through tooth #5, stand totally on his own for a few seconds at a time, and drinks 6-8 oz […]




I am having my own “getaway” this week.  I left Monday for DeForest and will be returning home on Friday.  It’s not totally a getaway since I do have the kids with me.  So far they are doing well.  Yesterday was the day of adjustment for Warren.  Laura adjusted pretty much right away.  Monday night […]



Heart Melted

My heart just melted. Laura was playing. I was reading something on my computer. She comes up to me, “Mommy, I love you. I bring you a present.” Then she proceeds to give me a hug. Yep, heart is melted.



The Final Countdown!

Well, I am down to counting minutes before Robert gets home.  Current guess is that he’ll be home in the next 40 minutes or so.  Well, he just called and is about 25 minutes away at this point.  :D  I am so excited to see him! Tonight went pretty well.  I am trying to get […]



3 Days Down

I have made it three days.  Yesterday/evening wasn’t bad.  I didn’t feel like cooking, so Laura had chicken nuggets and I had chicken patty sandwich.  Last night got to be a true challenge and test for me.  Warren was up 3 times.  The first was from 11-11;50, then 1-1:40, then 3-5 this morning.  By 4am […]




This is the first time Robert has really traveled for work.  It is 3:45 in the afternoon.  He wouldn’t even be home yet on a normal work day.  However, I am missing him like crazy already.  I am crying anytime I think about him being gone.  I am not normally like this.  I have no […]



Where Does the Time Go?

Today is my 4th Mother’s Day.  I count my first as when I was pregnant with Laura.  If she would have come then, she would have had a great chance of survival.  It never ceases to amaze me how fast time seems to go where the kids are involved.  I have a hard time believing […]
