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.

I'm feeling better


So I've calmed down. 

I worked six hours today on my day off.   Not too bad actually.  I have a new classroom and it feels so nice.  Now I just have to do bulletin boards on Monday during naptime and it will feel much better.  The room I am in is twice the size of my old room.  It feels really nice. (I know I keep repeating myself.  I can't help it.  It feels really nice.)

I've made dinner for myself.  Tomatoes and mozzarella with balsamic vinegar and italian dressing, bagels, and proscuitto.  If I keep this up I may very well end up weighing 400 lbs.  I am very much an emotional eater.  I need to feel like I am pampering myself and this dinner will do the trick.  My kiddos won't eat this so it is my duty, my calling to consume this. 

Ok.  I think I may be getting slap-happy.  I'm thinking all that extra work may have done it.

I really know how to live things up on a Saturday night, don't I??
