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 need a hobby

So I'm back on here.  Being off FB is hard!!   Aaarrrggghhhh!  So with all this available time I'm searching the internet for various things.  Like Megan's birthMother.  I know I shouldn't.  I really shouldn't.  I should just respect her privacy.  But I want to see a picture.  Just one picture.  And see?  I used the word "but".  Dr. Phil says that when you use the word "but" you negate the words right before the word "but".  Like I know I'm fat BUT I love food.  I might as well just say I love food.  At this rate, I'll have an entire book written before Tuesday.  I told Ali this is what happens when I'm without kids for 3 days.  My brain gets working.  Sometimes for good.  Sometimes not so much.  I need my friend Michele S. to give me some pointers on how to search for someone.  I do pretty well on my own though. 
By the way, here is a recent picture of me.  I look rather snazzy here.  Not like a Mom of 4 kiddos.  At least I would like to think that.  One of the few decent pics of me.  Usually there are pictures of my feet in everything because I really don't like pics of myself posted anywhere.  BUT I needed a good pic for my account. 

<-----------------  Now who wouldn't want to date this?  It might have something to do with the fact that I am fat.  Or maybe it's the fact that I have 4 kids, 3 of whom are triplets.  I'm quite the catch don't you think?   I might have also mentioned that I like the Star Wars movies.  That might have been one detail too many.  I mean who wouldn't want to date a fat, Star Wars-loving gal like me?

I need a hobby.
