Twenty weeks ago today my whole world changed.  My worst nightmare came true and I am still trying to wrap my brain around that fact.  As a family we are healing and learning to live this new life without one of our members.  The hole left by Sophia is as obvious today as it was

Catching up and slowing down...hopefully

We had a really nice Easter weekend and it is at times like these that I am most thankful for M having the Sunday/Monday weekend schedule that he does. When everyone headed back to work today after a busy holiday yesterday, we were able to stay home, hang out, play, relax and enjoy being together

For the birds

Nearly another week has passed and at the end of each day as I collapse into bed I think, “What in the world happened to this day? It all just seems to go by so quickly! I know we accomplish something in there but the house seems to STILL be a mess, the laundry is
