One Year Ago…

One Year Ago…

One year ago, at about this time actually, I was on hands and knees with my first real contractions, yelling at my frantic husband who was running around in his rather comical boxers asking me what to do. “Before you do anything I need for you to put on some clothes so I can take […]

To Be Known

To Be Known

“Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I […]

Do It Anyway

Do It Anyway

I couldn’t really think of anything to say today. When that happens, there is usually something that someone else has said that needs to be said again, and I should stop rambling–kind of like the whole “80-20 Rule“. (Get used to me saying redundant things like that, because I love it.) Most of you have […]

Letting Go

Letting Go

When you first decide to have a baby (or even if it was a surprise), I think we all have this lovely idea of trips to the zoo, cuddling on the couch, and still being able to get all of our normal chores done (which we couldn’t even find the time or motivation to get […]

Singin’ in the Rain

Singin’ in the Rain

Oh, it’s been one of those weeks. Baby girl is doing better, though still not enough to warrant normal life. It’s been difficult to study, and even more difficult to take her to the doctor. I have a very high respect for those parents who have to do that with their children often, for whatever […]

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

1. Even though I’m in medical school, I still panic like any other mom. I think I might panic even more because I know all of the horrible one-in-a-bagillion chance things that can go wrong or that it “could be”. No fun. No fair. 2. School isn’t that important to me. Don’t get me wrong. […]

We All Have a Cause…

We All Have a Cause…

This post does have rules. (It’s my blog. I can do what I want.) 1. If you break it you buy it. If you read it, you interact with it. 2. If you don’t plan to participate, do not continue reading, do no pass go, do not collect $200. We all have a cause. We […]

All Things Easter

All Things Easter

Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”. So why not Easter? Easter is pretty much a BIG deal. And it’s all about Life…especially the life that we can have through Jesus. (Warning: Lots of Clicking […]

Baby Steps, Bob!

Baby Steps, Bob!

When change happens TO me- it seems to happen suddenly. Last January there was one business week that went something like this. 1. Michael’s interview at The Church. 2. We found out that we were having an “Abigail”. 3. I had my medical school interview. 4. We closed on our first house. Talk about change. […]

Productive

Productive

If you’re one of those “go with the flow”, “glass is half-full”, “I’ll get it done tomorrow” kind of people, you may not understand this. Opposite people (like me) will understand this completely. I hate not being productive. Yes, I do my fair share of slacking off and socializing…now. Believe it or not, that was […]
