My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

The Latest

In between commercials during the Oscars, I thought I would come down here and type a bit. I miss having Mom here to watch the Oscars with me. She would get as excited as I do about the dresses, etc. Even if we couldn't get together to watch we would watch while on the phone together. Just one of those odd moments when I really wish she was here.

I had a really good interview on Friday with a new preschool that is opening up in Norton Commons. They will allow me to bring the girls with and will have room for Megan in the summer. I think this will be a good place for us to be for awhile. I am going to call tomorrow and make sure that everything works out for the job. I'm still pretty sure I will be giving up the house though. the mortgage company is still willing to work we me but I don't know how much longer I can keep trying to keep this place. I'm hoping for a lottery win, Prince Charming, etc.....

The girls come back tomorrow from their Dad's and I can't wait. I miss them while they are gone! Megan finally has a full week of school. With all the yucky weather last week, they had a rather short school week. I think Megan does better when things are pretty organized and she has a set schedule. She is doing so well in school that it is scary. I always knew she was smart but it sure is nice to hear her teachers say the same thing. I registered the triplets at Field for next year as well. I can't believe they will be in Kindergarten. My babies. They are so excited that they will be at school with Megan. Field is such a good school and I like the teachers there so much. It's a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and the place I used to teach. I was working there when Megan came and when I had the triplets. So I feel like the teachers were there with me every step of the way. Everyone keeps such a great eye out for Megan. I know they will do the same for Abby, Brigie, and Caroline.

I'll update tomorrow when I find out about my job!
