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.

Sorry, no title for this one.  Sometimes I just can't come up with one. 

Here are some pictures I'm posting to show the before of our new townhome.  The girls bedrooms are set up, at least the beds.  Mine too.  This weekend becomes the first long weekend to really plow through everything.  Some days it's a good thing I don't have a spouse.  I know exactly (or almost) where everything is because I packed 99.9% of my boxes.  And while I'm on the subject, this being single thing really isn't that bad.  It's coming up on 5 years at the end of May.  Sure, I would love some companionship but I also enjoy making all the decisions.  Of course I've had many friends tell me that once you stop looking and are content with things that is when someone will pop into my(our) life.  So who knows.

Anyway, here are the pics!
The girls room.  Beds are already set up.  Thanks Aunt Cindy and Uncle Erik (mostly Cindy for putting up with Erik during the whole process.  jeez)
the living room/dining room

ugh.  the playroom.  could be weeks before I see the floor.

Megan's room (although her room is basically set up now)
