The Lenten Luck of a Serious Diagnosis

, ,

Between waiting for calls, taking calls, sending messages, checking for responses, and general stewing our Tuesday was pretty much consumed by a black cloud of bleh. Not sure what I mean?  Let me bring you up to speed. Cee had an MRI on Friday, and the results aren’t great.  The aren’t even good.  Or so-so. […]

A Flock of Questions

  I’ve talked before about our pickle jar of conversation question starters that we use at dinner time.  That discussion is usually my favorite part of the day.  It’s a super easy way to stay connected as a family, and it’s been both silly and insightful. Take for example, a question from a couple weeks […]

She will not get better.

,

Cee’s illness impacts everything. Worries about what the future holds are overwhelming.  I’ve enjoyed being able to escape all that by writing about fluffy topics lately.  Library books.  Clothes.  Fluff.  It’s all fluff.

Escaping the Dreaded Mom Style Rut

From my earlier post, My Style Journey: From high school on, I developed the mentality that it’s not what on the outside that counts.  I can rock inside stuff like being kind and helpful, but I can’t rock the outside stuff.  So I’ve pretty much given up trying any harder than “presentable.”  Clothes were designed to […]

SQT:  Friday Funnies

7 Quick Friday Funnies   It’s been a topsy-turvy week of getting behinder and behinder with another trip to Mayo, getting my stitches out, and swim therapy.  So here are some quick funnies from life with the kiddos.       1.  Some questions are best left unanswered.

I am Monet:  Exhaustion and Doubt in Motherhood

, ,

    Today we did another up-and-back to Mayo for Cee.  That makes two trips in eight days.  We returned home with more questions than answers and an MRI to get scheduled.  David and I are exhausted in every sense of the word.  It’s hard.  It’s really hard. Given all this, when I read a […]
