Okay. I feel so out of touch. I've been told several times in the last weeks Problem is, I have no idea what to say. I thought about building a tent in one of the kids rooms and taking pictures to show what we do on rainy days. I thought about doing a photo blog. I thought about just rambling. I thought about talking about the orphanage we're trying to help overseas. I've thought about just asking for ideas to blog about. Because lets face it, I am at a loss for words. When am I ever at a loss? Ever.
Well... hmm oh yeah here's something funny for you to laugh at. I'm on my hubby's computer bc mine won't work. Here's the deal. For about six months the battery on my computer hasn't worked. The computer has to be plugged up or it's a no go. Several weeks ago the computer started acting hinky. I would get error messages while trying to boot up, etc. Then yesterday my computer completely stopped working. I booted it up and got a blue screen. It gave me instructions to start in safe mode, and every time I do the thing freezes up. So, tonight I decided to give it another go, and I got the blue screen. Sigh. Instead of holding down the power button, I just pulled the cord so it would turn off. And it didn't. It stayed running. It was fine. Are you kidding me?!?!?!? My windows stops working altogether, and my battery decides it's going to join us in the land of the living. Karma.
Anyhow. Seriously, not a lot to talk about. Doing a newborn photo shoot Sunday. If you have any good ideas, you could let me know. Wow this is about the worst post I've ever posted. I don't have the emotional energy to go into life, so this is what you're getting :) I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive, I mean, for those of you who didn't already know that. Now.. for those of you who have been on my back about blogging.. shush. I did. And I told you it would be boring. Nothing to say :)
I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
I'm here to use my voice. So many people can't. In a world of darkness, I just want to help God's light to shine through. I pray that my words are His, and my love is His, as well. This is my journey through the darkness. To start are the beginning of the story, click here.
