Having a hard time [Jul. 22nd, 2007|12:26 am]
tatiannasmommy
I haven't posted in quite some time. Life has thrown me a major curve and I am struggling just to get through each day. Three weeks ago, I fell down the stair carrying a laundry basket. I miscarried my little boy; we named him Luke. I ended up getting an infection after the still birth and have been in and out of the hospital. It has been very stressful, lonely and depressing. My husband and daughter (and my extended family and friends) have been extremely loving and supportive but I am still struggling to get through each day. I have been praying a lot. Anyway, prayers would be appreciated if anyone reads this.

Update [Jun. 13th, 2007|01:57 pm]
tatiannasmommy
I thought I would update my journal, for posterity reasons, not because anyone else reads it. It has been a long, but exciting 3 months or so. I found out I was pregnant after trying for some time (and contemplating having another child for even longer). I had a difficult first pregnancy and a miscarriage, so this was hard. I am due in October and I weigh less than before I got pregnant, as I have been so sick. It seems to be getting better though.

Tatti is out of school and home every day! I can't believe she is actually done with 1st grade; where does time fly? We have been working on settling into a daily routine and trying to keep the TV off as much as possible. I am teaching her how to be responsible for some daily chores and making sure to do her reading everyday. She signed up for the library reading program last week.

I can't stand this hot weather; yuck!

I am having sick feelings about the response (or lack thereof) of my first friend from LJ. Many months ago, I apparently upset her and I apologized over and over. She removed me from her friends list, but every once in awhile a message pops up from her. I get so excited when I see this, as she was so kind to me. Anyway, when I contact her, she never responds and usually the message I could see disappears. I have read in the paper about cyber bullying by strangers. I know this isn't the case, but I feel so hurt. When you think you are "friends" with someone and make a little error in judgement, it is like a dark cloud hanging over when you can't resolve it. I know in my heart it is silly to worry about stuff like this, especially when I have so much to be thankful for. I guess this journal is a good place to vent about it. I know if I mentioned it to my husband he would think I was crazy to be fretting about a stranger I didn't know.

Anyway, I am off to help Tatti sort through some of her toys. We are going to give some things to charity.

Until next time; keep cool!

Applebees [Apr. 17th, 2007|10:28 pm]

I went to Applebees for dinner tonight. I haven't been there for some time. I didn't think it was anything special. I don't think I will be returning anytime soon. I want to go out for ice cream; the weather just feels like ice cream. I love feeling warmer weather again and the longer days; awesome. I am glad I don't live on the east coast right now.

Virgina Tech Shootings [Apr. 16th, 2007|02:15 pm]

How horrible what happened today at Virginia Tech; can you imagine how the families must be feeling. Extra prayers today for all involved. Let's hope there aren't any copycats out there.

Girl who killed her newborn baby/Minnesota Twins [Apr. 13th, 2007|08:15 am]
tatiannasmommy
I am feeling just sick about the thought of that young Oakdale woman killing her newborn baby by stabbing her 135 times. It is so tragic. I know so many people who would give anything to have a child. How could parents not see that their child is pregnant? That is beyond my thought process.

Oh, and on the baseball front; why oh why would the Twins build a baseball stadium in Minnesota without a tretractable roof? Hello, it is Minnesota where it snows in April! It looks like a nice plan, but the roof really should be on there.

Bull is home [Apr. 10th, 2007|05:29 pm]
tatiannasmommy
Thank you for the prayers and thoughts. Bull was found today about 1 mile from our home by a very nice couple out walking their dog this morning. They called me from the number on her collar, but I was out hanging up signs. I called when I got home and went to pick her up. She looked very ragged and like she had been in a fight or something. I took her right to the vet and everything is fine; I was told to bring her home and pamper her. We are definately thinking about getting her chipped and Tatti will no longer be allowed to let her out (for the time being), as she doesn't always remember to check the gate. I need a nice relaxing drink tonight after the day I have had. These precious animals are so wonderful; I can't imagine how someone would think to harm them (like has been in the news lately). Don't you sometimes wish you could talk to your animals to find out what goes through their minds when they leave home and what happened while they were gone?

Need Prayers for Bull [Apr. 10th, 2007|09:58 am]
tatiannasmommy
I need thoughts and prayers this morning. Last night my daughter let our dog out in the back yard and apparently the gate had been left open. We haven't seen her since 7:30 last night. This happened about 4 years ago and she came back within an hour or so, but it is now over 14 hours later and Bull hasn't returned. I am frantic. I am making up some flyers to hang and will go around the neighborhood to hang them. Please pray that she returns.

Back from vacation! [Apr. 7th, 2007|03:32 pm]

[Current Mood |relaxedrelaxed]

I am back from vacation; did anyone miss me? I don't know if anyone reads my posts (if you do, let me know!) Anyway, we left last Friday for Florida. My husband has family that lives down near Orlando and we were able to stay there for the week. We did all the Disney parks and beach; soaking up the Florida sunshine. I hear we missed some nice weather here in MN. I heard they got a foot of snow up near Duluth; yuck! I am not liking the cool weather since returning, but it is nice that there is sunshine (I heard there wasn't much of that either). It was so nice to just get away and be together as a family. It didn't hurt that I didn't have to cook or clean for a whole week. Yeah! My VCR messed up while gone (it moved ahead for daylight savings time on its own) and I missed a bunch of my favorite shows...major bummer, but I guess I will live.

Angelsmom, are you out there anymore? I have two questions for you and I have been unable to connect with you via email. I have a friend that moved up to Hugo and she is looking for someone close by to buy Tastefully Simple; do you still sell it? Also, I think my sister and I may finally get that video organized for our grandma; what is your sister in law's web site address again. For some reason I can't find it in my favorite links. I hope you get this!

Fantastic day! [Mar. 23rd, 2007|06:28 pm]

[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]

I had an incredible day today. All week I have been looking forward to a lunch with a big group of friends. We couldn't decide where to go, so it got down to three places. Cafe Latte on Grand Avenue, Bonfire in Woodbury or Cafe Cravings in White Bear. Now, most of us live in the southeast metro, so Bonfire seemed like the obvious choice (as it is so much closer than the other two choices), but we decided to go to Cafe Cravings because they offered more vegetarian choices (no meat today) and those great desserts. There was 8 of us and we had such a blast. We laughed and cackled there for 3 hours! I had a bread bowl with an incredible tomato soup; I love tomatoes...it was so fantastic. I also had a giant slice of german chocolate cake; heaven! I just wish that place was closer. Then, this is almost better than lunch; 4 of us went and walked around a lake that wasn't too far from there. One of the gals grew up on the east side of St. Paul and brought us to Lake Phalen. What a beautiful walk around an inner city lake; there were mobs of people out, but it was heavenly. We just barely made it home for the kids to be done from school.

We have a family birthday party on Sunday, otherwise getting ready for spring break is on my agenda for the weekend. I can't wait to get away!

Feelin in a funk [Mar. 20th, 2007|01:12 pm]

[Current Mood |blahblah]

Things haven't been going exactly great in my world. Tatti is driving me nuts and I feel like I have no one that understands how I feel. She has lost her school sweatshirt at school (her name was marked in it too) and we are on our second lunch box. Where do these things go? She is whiny and ill behaved. I am so ready to go on vacation and get away from all the sameness of each day.

I am feeling bad about LJ as I have tried to reach out to a few people in a couple of communities and haven't received any response back. After loosing angelsmom as a friend on LJ, there hasn't been anyone else I have really connected with. I don't know what is going on on the crock pot community; people are so catty to each other I am afraid to post.

Did anyone see Elliot Yamin on Regis and Kelly today? That was fun to see; his makeover looks good! Nice teeth.

Well, I am off to Kohls to spend some money. Shopping should make me feel better, right?
