Hi, remember me, that person who used to blog here? I am obviously having a liiiiiittle bit of a hard time balancing the many moving pieces of my life right now. I sit down most days to write a post and the next thing I know, 87 different things have to be dealt with OMG…

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! Mike and the kids woke me up with breakfast in bed (smoked salmon eggs benedict, nice work, Mike!) and gave me presents and lots of love. Today is always a mixed bag of emotions for me and anyone missing a child, a mom, a grandma, or a mother figure. The only…

The regular softball season has ended. I just loved the girls I had on my team this year. They were all so sweet and funny, and they got along with each other SO well. You never know what you’re going to get with a bunch of seven and eight-year-olds, but this group was great. I’m…

The last six weeks have really been a blur. April is always so crappy. The grief this month brings always takes an emotional and physical toll. And life doesn’t stop just because I want it to. My kids had softball, baseball, the science fair, chorus performances, dental and eye exams, birthday parties, playdates, etc, and…

Thank you, everyone, for the love last week. It’s been very hard for me to wrap my head around Maddie being gone for nine years. Grief is so emotionally and physically¬†taxing…I kept myself very busy last weekend, which was what I needed to do. But I’ve been paying the price this week, physically. It’s amazing…
