Eli and I

Hanging out in the nursery... Eli was the only bigger baby / toddler so I just hung out with him. I honestly just don't feel very comfortable as a single mom in the couples home builders Sunday School class. I am out of sorts as a single mom.

Blessed to be a mom but lonely...















Mother Earth News

I just couldn't pass this up when I saw it in a check out line. I miss camping and really want to take the kids rough camping. Maybe somewhere with snow. We can bone up on our skills...

Happy Birthday Eliot

11 years old!! Birthday lunch with Granny. I have asked my mom to give the kids memories instead of presents. So, they usually get a sleepover, an outing. Or for Eliot it is always Panera Bread!

A country home visit

I still contract for the state for Early Intervention and have a small caseload. It is official Fall and Eliot wanted some goldenrod. So of course I stopped and picked some. And, it being Alabama and still a very racist yet proud simple place a home (not the one I visited) had a Confederate flag, an American flag, a an Alabama football (not state flag) flying....

Ugh, I need a new home....




You have to zoom in to see the flags. I was on a county road. I wasn't going to go on private property.

First day of Fall

A day to announce

I was married on the first day of Spring...

Only fitting to announce divorce on the first day of Fall....

Not a sad or happy day...

Just facts of two people not meant to be for specific reasons that won't change. I know people will day to work on it, marriage is a covenant not contract. But, we never had a religious ceremony with vows or anything. Just a civil paperwork driven meeting on my lunch break.

Maybe one day I will find someone who wants more than a legal contract. In fact I feel my ex never even really wanted that and I pressured him. We had 3 children before we were legally married. That speaks volumes...

3 peas in a pod...

Short hair and all, my cuties....



A stroll down memory lane...


At a home I lived at when I lived in Charleston,  SC... I hope all is OK there with the hurricane.


With Danny a few years later in Soith Carol8na in Naval Housing after a bath. Sunflowers were my thing... 

Visiting Granny with Danny. Yep, same shirt... He is as big as Eli and 8 months younger...

Church day and new beginnings







Evan was my photographer so we got a selfie before church. Eliot and Eli are at home. Eliot still refuses to get her hair cut and treated so home she stays...

Sad girl but I am sorry.

Library day

We went to the library yesterday. I meant to post before midnight. So I have to say yesterday when it still feels like today. Took the littles....

I wonder when Evan and Eliot will hate being called that. They all thoroughly enjoy the Hoover library. And everyone basically behaved. A win...
