Wow, I've been negligent
So, school is out. I bused my buns to finish last semester with a decent GPA. It was very hard and I know that I let other areas fall way behind. My spark was smothered with Stats. So, I looked at myself at semesters end and about cried. All tha... Read more
I have a problem.
To understand what I'm going to write here, I need to lay down some back ground. When I was growing up we didn't have a lot of food. Mostly, we had soda. I remember even if we didn't have milk, or even the fixings for PB&Js, we had Pepsi. Being ... Read more
So its been a long time since I've blogged. Life was hectic and things fell apart, including myself. All that hard work was lost. Now I'm picking up some of the pieces and starting over. I'm so tired all the time. I don't even want to eat becaus... Read more
So, I went to bed last night cuddling my Buggy. He pretty much always sleeps with me. I'm ok with it for now. I have no idea what woke me up. Could it have been the smells? Was it the person talking on her cell phone saying "Wow that tree is on ... Read more
So since my MRI, I've had a migraine and daily head aches. I'm not talking a little pain behind the eyes. I'm talking "Oh dear Lord, please turn down the sun." headaches complete with tears, nausea, and vomiting. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I aid... Read more
Meds, Class, and a Kid
So, I went into for an eye exam on Thursday. It was finished a lot quicker than I thought so I bopped on down to where my neurologist is located. After finding out that he wasn't in, I explained some of the problems I've been having to her. The ... Read more

What the ...
So, there has been a lot going on in my life this last month or so.
First, my son has begun acting oddly. His behavior has changed rather dramatically. Enough so that I took him to his doctor for a behavioral work up. She spent almost 45 m... Read more

Where to start?
I seem to have so many little things going that I can't focus on one. I've got my financial aid, scholarship hunting, my math class, dr,s appointments, food prep, cooking. It just feels like a lot. I keep trying to write myself notes to keep tra... Read more
A question of waste
I have a bit of a moral dilemma I would love some help with.
there are times when I go to a local food bank to get some extra food for my son and I. At the moment we have a 200$ budget for food monthly. We routinely are taking money out of... Read more

Today has been a damn good day.
Today started off like any other day when we don't have school. Ronan brings all of the toys he can find and starts putting them all over my room as I sleep. He then proceeds to make as much noise as he possibly can in order to wake me up, inclu... Read more
