All That I Know

is that I'm breathing and I just want to be OK today.....

These lyrics from the album Be OK by Ingrid Michaelson have become the soundtrack to my life these last weeks.

I'm just going to put it out there. Life has been rough. There are days I just want to go hide in the closet so nothing more can be asked of me. But instead I take a big breath, pour myself a glass of wine & put a smile on my face. Ok so only sometimes I pour the glass of wine but there is always a big breath.

I have Halloween pictures to share and a 5 month post for Owen that I would love to get posted soon but the truth is I don't know when or if that will happen. So instead here are three little snapshots of life.

Traveling Tummy Time

Marathon Kids


Please know that we are doing well and the boys are great. I'm just having a really hard time getting a good grip on my life these days. Hopefully I'll get the wind under me pretty soon & I'll be back here on a regular basis.

{{hug}} I completely hear you Monica. I could have written your post myself.

If the two boys in the photos were mine, I would have thought that I wrote this post, except that would mean that I would actually have to sit down and blog and oh, that hasn't happened either. Sending you good thoughts!

Hang in there girl! It gets better...really, it does. I remember those days (after having my second) of feeling so overwhelmed. Everything will work out...I promise.
Is that artwork by your older son? AWESOME. You need to save it...look at Tall Grass Prairie's blog. She has a tutorial on using your child's artwork in quilting. In about ten years you can work on it :).....
take care and sending happy thought and wishes your way.

Missed you, Monica, but totally understand! It's hard going back to that baby stage. I hope things settle out for you soon. Adorable pics!

Thinking good thoughts for you Monica. Hang in there. You've gone through quite the adjustment.

Thanks for sharing the pics - love 'em. I think the first 2 years are SOOO AMAZING and SOOOO EXHAUSTING!!!!!!!!!

You are exactly where God wants you to be...just keep focusing that energy on the 3 McNeill men and take care of yourself. You will be fine. - and OH the memories, which you have a lifetime to recall.
