wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

hooray! summer is officially here...i went to work today; was finished by NOON!  terrific!  came home, had a little lunch...the boys took a nap, i went for a walk and discovered that i had something wrong w/ my foot.  all day long i've been so worried about a stupid plantar wart...i knew i had one.  i KNEW it.  finally, this evening, i discovered it was....a blister.  now, to my credit, it was a DEEP blister that didn't look ANYTHING like a blister.  but it is, or was a blister.

sawyer refuses to poop in the potty.  or in his pants. he's like on a poop strike.  instead he just runs around in the squatted position screaming and crying "POOP!" tonight he even asked me to pray that his tummy would feel better (all the while, squatting and screaming....) . The child just holds it. forever. his daddy said he wasn't praying for that b/c it was sawyer's fault he wouldn't poop.  so mommy said a prayer that sawyer would be able to poop.  but he hasn't, and he won't, and it isn't b/c he CAN'T.  he just WON'T.

sawyer will be 3 in a week.  unbelievable.  we are having his party this saturday and i am super excited...we are having a monkey theme.  in the past we've had a cowboy party, and last year we had a race car party.  i LOVE making the cakes, cupcakes, and ice cream. it's so fun to me.  i'd do it for a living if people would hire me.  birthday parties are one of the best parts, so far, of being a mom.  we're getting him a trampoline (well, not just us, family is chipping in)...the turnout will be great- a lot of family and friends, and i even have some  (at least one!) of my college friends coming to see me (okay, ridge).  I'm so excited!  i love getting to see my Ouachita "sisters."  

I thought I'd post a pic or two of the last two year's cakes...not that i'm ace of cakes or whatever, i'm so not. but i think both of my cakes are cute.  this year's is even better.

and i'm proud of my blogging ability so far. i'm going to lose readers if i keep posting every day though, so i will try to BACK OFF.
