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.

No, it's not what you think.  It's never that.  I have my air conditoning back on! Wahooo!!!  It went out yesterday around 6:30.  And it was HOT in here.  Or should I say I was hot.  bwhaahhaha.  And a hot me is not a happy me.  I can do without a lot.  But I can't be hot.  Perhaps that is my problem.  By the end of the evening all four girls had migrated downstairs to sleep on the couch, loveseat, and floor in the living room.  Megan ended up in bed with me.  To cuddle.  When it was 85 degrees in here.  By the morning I was worn out from being so hot. I waited until 9 a.m. and called maintenance.  Can I tell you how much I love that I can call maintenance and THEY COME AND FIX MY AIR?  FOR FREE.  I'm not sure I will ever look at homeownership again.  It didn't cost me a thing to have the repair done.  By the time I got home from work my apartment was a nice, cool oasis.  A beautiful puddle of coolness. 

Have I told you how much I hate to be hot?
