About Me

I am a lot of things, wife, sister, friend, and aunt but most of all I am a grieving mother of a lost baby girl taken too soon.  This blog is my way of venting and surviving.  I'm trying to find my way back to funny, sarcastic, and happy but it's quite a journey.

Microblog Mondays

This weekend was a great weekend for me.  First, I was proud of myself.  I drove for the very first time to the airport.  This may seem like something dumb to be proud of but for me its a big friggin deal!!! I have only had my licence for about 2 years.  Yes (I was way older then I should have been getting my license) But, for a long time I was always nervous about it.  I hate to drive.  I avoid it.  I drive pretty much only if absolutely necessary.  I would rather walk 10 miles, in the rain, up hill, than drive! So driving to the airport was a huge accomplishment.  In fact, Kevin should take this as a compliment because he is the reason I drove there.  I wanted him home, and if driving to the airport was how I was going to accomplish that, than so be it, it had to happen.   He's home and not I can sleep at night. 

Second, I got to see 2 of my favorite people in the entire world.  My 2 longest friends.  We don't see each other nearly as often as we should but after seeing them for 5 seconds it's like we never missed a beat.  They get me.  Out of all of my friends they are in the same life situation as I am, but in completely different ways.  I won't air out their laundry here but it makes me feel better to know that between the 2 of them I have someone that understands pretty much all of my life situations.  It helps that I know that both are completely honest and do not handle me with care.  They handle me as they should.  A friend that sometimes needs to hear she is wrong, being a pain in the ass, or just needs help.  I like that about them. 

And last but not least I got a date night out with Kevin.  We went out for a few drinks and hung out talking about the week that we missed together.  So today, I feel just a little more normal than I did all last week. 


  1. I am so glad to read you are feeling good and had a good weekend!
    Did you drive to Logan? I really really dislike driving to Logan. I always get confused about when to turn in to the cell phone lot, and then have to park in a garage. Whenever I have a choice I try to fly out of Providence, it's so much more driver friendly!
    And I'm so glad you have friends that you were able to open up to and can rely upon. So very important. Hugs hun!

  2. Yeah I drove to Logan but I wouldnt go until Kevin had already arrived so I didn't even need to go into the cell phone lot. I just drove right up and pulled over and picked him up.

    I have good friends and the ones that dont understand try really hard to listen and get it. I know that they are trying and thats important to me too. My two friends that I hung out with this weekend have had their own experiences that relate to what I'm going through so with them its definitely easier to talk to.

  3. Glad you got a good weekend in there. That you got that time with friends who understand.

  4. Sounds like a lovely weekend - an accomplishment you can be proud of, the return of someone loved, friends who get it, and a night out. Perfect.
