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.

Lightening strikes

Yes it does. And it did. My house. Fried my computer, phones and TVs. I'm using my brother's computer right now. So don't expect too many updates. I just had a job interview for a 2nd grade here in town at a Catholic school. Keep your fingers crossed! This sounds like a good opportunity. It's even on the way to the girls' school.

The girls are on their way to the dentist today. They are not too excited but they do love spending time at the Uncle's house. They got to swim and use the hot tub here. Too cute.

School starts on August 12 so we are frantically trying to get all the school supplies together. I showed my sister the list and her reply was"That's not so bad." Then I reminded her that the Kindergarten list has to be times 3. That it got overwhelming. lol

My foot is still in an air cast. At least I don't need the crutches so much anymore.

Megan went to a friend's b-day party on Sunday afternoon and the trio went to a triplet party at the same time. It figures. But they all had a great time.

Time to head out! Call me to visit as I have no internet service. I think that will kill me!!!
