Howdy Folks

Well hi there!

How's it going for you all out there? It's going over here I guess, nothing too exciting on my end. Can you believe that I have no pictures for you? No, really I don't. I won a contest from another blogger and received my goods- and forgot to take a picture. I had some tasty soup yesterday- and forgot to take a picture of it. I found a GREAT new snack at the store last night, ate it this morning and forgot to take a picture of it. I went for a run at lunch today in the gorgeous sunshine, and yet- no snapshots.

Can you handle a wordy post?

I haven't been up to snuff commenting lately, end of quarter smack down at work is starting! So I get my few minutes to surf the web and then I hurry back to doing other things, so if it seems like I'm ignoring you, it's not intentional!

So to answer some of your questions/comments about the baby. YES. It was difficult to sit there and wonder if that could have been me. I was devasted after that happened last year and when I thought about telling my friends about it, I thought it might be ok to let the people close to me in on that grief with me. But then when my friend told us that she was pregnant, I zipped my lip and never said anything. They still don't know about it- and I intend to keep it that way. I held baby Brooklyn and wondered to myself, could this have been me? Fawning over my own son or daughter? Having the Peanut be a big sister already? I cried a little when I left her house, but I think I'm ok now. I'm happy for my friend, she is just how I pictured her as a mom.

To also talk a little bit more about the OAS, YES- OMG IT SUCKS! I hate it! I love fresh fruit!!! And I miss it dearly, but the lip burning and swelling and itchiness, I don't love, so I stay away. And did only Jessie get my joke about being my free pass for other things. I have a one track mind I guess! Haha!

Hopefully on Saturday I will have some time to actually get into the kitchen, but depending on how NICE it is out, I may be out bike riding or something, sooooooo that might not happen.

I will be catching up on everyone's lives ASAP! I swear! *hugs to all*


  1. Miss you love!!!!!!!!!!

    I have days where I forget to take photos too, you are not a bad blogger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hope you are great! Muah!!!!!!!!

  2. aw hang in there, it must be a tough mix of feelings to be around your friend and her new baby, but i am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason!!

  3. Hey there! **hugs** I know it must have been so hard to see that baby and I think you are so brave and caring to have not said anything. But also know that it's ok to open up and let people know you're hurting if you need to. The Peanut is going to be an amazing big sister one day, and she is so lucky to have you as a mom.

    Don't feel bad about the pictures. I never have pictures...

    And I guess I have the same track mind lol! The gutter track mind maybe... Oh, well, what can you do ;)

  4. Awwww, girl...
    Don´t feel bad!
    This is just another example of how good are your posts, even without any pics!
    You go, girl!
    Have a terrific weekend!

  5. Girl... there are about 10 million women who are going to start claiming OAS (not me though... hahaha).
