Yes, 2016 wasn’t the best year but I am so tired of the constant Facebook, Insta, Twitter, Snapchat, etc comments about how this has been the worst year ever. Let’s be real, people are saying that because Trump won. Regardless of my or anyone else’s feelings about him as President there is nothing we can… Continue reading Can We Stop the “2016” Bashing For a Bit?
It’s 9pm on the Saturday night, a week before Christmas. This is the weekend that people are out shopping, celebrating with friends/coworkers/extended family, decorating their house, etc etc. What am I doing? I (other than writing this blog) am laying in bed watching the SNL Christmas Special and perusing Facebook. Loser alert….. The past two… Continue reading The Emotional “Backpack”
This entry is for all of you who put a “3” next to the question on the doctor office questionnaire for “How many drinks do you have per week” when you know it should really be “15+.” You know who you are and know EXACTLY what I am talking about.

I have a love/hate relationship with reality tv. I watch it because my husband is gone half the time and I do enjoy some mindless nonsense at the end of the day. But I hate it when you know they blow some things out of proportion. As I was about to start IVF, a reality… Continue reading The IVF Buffet Line
There is one big thing I have learned through everything that has gone on over the past 2-3 years…and that is you can’t sit back and let the world pass by you. Moping around at home, living in a world purely of self pity, giving up on things because so much bad has already happened… Continue reading Leaning In
I have taken one psychology class in my life – AP Psychology my junior of high school (and I got a 3 on the test – I aim for mediocrity apparently). My point here is that I am by no means a psychologist but I remember learning all about the seven stages of emotional grief.… Continue reading Coping
Abortion. That is what my bill said. Let me back up but before I do I have to say there is a bit of irony and extreme sadness as I write this next blog. I had planned all along to sit down and write on this topic today after a busy week at work and… Continue reading Baby James
It is a well known fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It is a very much less known fact that it is also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance month. Who knew right? I only knew after I had lost 2 pregnancies (three now, but we will get to that later). After a quick… Continue reading Reality.
