A Very Long Week
I spent this week in student conferences for my 1301 classes.  Some sixty students later, I'm tired!  We've been over their papers, checked in to see how things are going, and once again, I find myself shaking my head at some of the things these students ha...

Back to Work
My girl is eight weeks old today, and it's amazing to me how much she changes each day.  She's learned to mimic people somewhat; if you stick your tongue out at her, she'll stick hers out in return.  She's gotten much stronger in the last week, lifting her ...

I've been having weird dreams in the short spans of hours that I sleep at night.  I've had weird dreams fora while, since before KC came along--probably starting in my second trimester.  They've continued since, often with some reoccurring themes.  (A tunne...

A Weekend of Home
My parents were finally able to come in this weekend to meet KC for the first time.  Mom's medication has been really putting her through the wringer, but for all the side effects, it seems to be working somewhat--well enough that she and Dad flew down Frid...

Mama Life
It's not that I haven't had time to write a blog post.  KC sleeps a good bit, being not quite a month old (and how she's almost a month old, I have no idea.), but when she's asleep, I spend my time either asleep myself, doing some basic housework, reading, ...

The last few weeks have been eventful and interesting.  My summer session finished two weeks ago, and to be honest, I was sad to see that class go.  There were only six people in it by the time we finished, but they were a great group of guys who worked rea...

Summer: 31 weeks and counting
Not a lot has been happening lately, so I've taken a break from the blog, but things are starting to kick back up a bit, so here I am. The house did not work.  The inspection report came back with way too much that needed fixed--I'm sure the owners were hor...

Summer Week 4: Old House, New House
I missed last week's blog post, but it has been a very busy couple of weeks here, thanks to house hunting.  Last weekend, Dear Husband's parents came down, which was delightful.  We'd both hit the serious doldrums of missing our families, and having MIL and...

Summer: Week 2
Church yesterday was a solemn affair.  The church was more full than it usually is--a lot of people showed up, partly for comfort and partly in a show of support for those who are still missing.  This week has been very hard for our church family.  Michelle...
