my hope

Election Day! I actually voted about a week ago, but today I’m feeling the Election Day nerves set in.  Like I posted on a friend’s Facebook status earlier, I have always wanted “my” candidate to win, but this year I feel more of a sense of desperation about it. I honestly don’t see how another …

a week to remember

This week will be a week to remember.  First, Eli (my middle baby) has run out of Pull.Ups.  Last night was his last.  Since he has been staying completely dry for a while now, Matt and I have decided to not purchase any more for him.  TONIGHT is the first Pull.Up-free night for Eli!  I’m excited …
