Wednesday Wanderings

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re all doing well. We’re still battling the plague. {less of a biblical plague and more of a medieval plague} It’s a looong cruel beast that leaves you utterly wrecked with ear, nose, throat and lung ailments. Not exactly sure what virus has taken us down, but where going on a month with someone consistently sick.…

currently reading

I read…A LOT. Especially when I’m stressed. I spent the last half of September stressed (and the first half of October for that matter)  so I read even more than I usually would. I thought I’d give you a list of what I’m currently reading and what I’ve plowed through recently. Currently reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Insurgent is a followup…

on finally figuring myself out

Just over a month ago I had one of those rare light bulb moments that ends up being life-altering. I figured out that I am in fact an introvert. I’m assuming most people are fully aware if they are introverts or extroverts. My Soldier is a text book introvert. That man lives in his head. Outwardly, My Soldier and I…

quiet spaces

My Soldier has been gone for 3 weeks. I talked to him for the 1st time today. I got to wish him a ‘Happy Veteran’s Day.’ It made my heart happy. I’ve spent 3 weeks not really talking, doing my best impersonation of a recluse. {a recluse with a caffeine addiction and short temper.} In all of my time hiding…

random thoughts on where i am now

Nothing profound, motivating, or inspirational today. Today I kind of just needed to vent to the vague world of the Blogosphere. So just some random thoughts on where I am now. Stuff that I’ve been thinking about for a while. My Soldier leaves in just under 2 weeks for 7 weeks. We’ve been spoiled to have a ridiculous amount of…

7 years

09.24.05 That’s the date I married My Soldier. He wasn’t a soldier then. He was just the boy who stole my ♥. Today is our 7th anniversary. 7 years ago I put on this dress… and took a few pictures… and saw this boy for the first time… and he took me for a walk… and told me for the…

my favorite baby gear

Which ever company first capitalized on paranoid first time mothers has likely made billions. Seriously, there are entire stores filled with stuff you need for the 1st 2 years of life alone. {shaking my head} I am kind of thankful that we’ve been either too poor or too seasoned to fall victim to the madness. When we found out we…

on mothering my 3rd

The Peanut will be 2 months old tomorrow. I feel like I should get his newborn photos up here on the ol bligity blog before he’s headed to kindergarten. Everyone warned me of the chaos and work that is adding a 3rd child. They warned of multiple siblings lashing out and struggling to adjust. They warned me of how detrimental…

ill

All of my packing strategies will have to wait. The Peanut and I are sick with a head cold. He can’t really sleep so is up crying all night and I can’t take anything for my symptoms because I am nursing. Soooo…my head feels fuzzy and I am super sleep deprived. My in-laws will be in town this weekend. I’ll…

a wee little break

Happy Thanksgiving Week! Thanksgiving is one of my FAVORITE holidays. That’s likely because it surrounds food and fellowship which are in my top 10 most favorite things. This is my first year hosting. Just a small group of friends from church. I am really excited about it. I’m going to have to take a wee blogging break for the holiday.…
