New Year Survey 2019

1. What did you do in 2019 that you’d never done before? Was a mom of 2. Worked in an open office space. 2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Last year I wanted to do some learning. I did take a reinforcement learning class during […]

I don’t remember the last time I blogged, so I guess it’s been a while. Between work and the kids I don’t get much time to do anything. I still need to finish this year’s photo book, but I have no idea when that will happen.Work has been busy, but fun. The open space isn’t […]

A Day in the Life of Lissy 2019

Sunday August 4th, 2019 and Monday August 5th, 2019 Since maternity leave affords me more free time and the morning of the fourth wasn’t stellar, I expanded this to two days in the Life of Lissy

Enjoying The Littles

Things have been much easier the last few weeks. Glenn hasn’t had any bouts of uncontrolled crying… with me anyway. He’s gotten very good at communicating. He has different cries for different needs which makes it easier to decipher what’s wrong. He’s super social and loves “talking” to us. He’ll even sit and listen to […]

Owen Says Part 6

Welcome Baby Glenn

I had a really lousy couple of weeks pain wise. Between round ligament pain and gas pain that had me in tears, I was pretty miserable. Lucky me, I went into early labor Thursday evening with irregular contractions. Didn’t sleep all night. Pain was awful, though still not as bad as the gas pain. Friday […]

Owen Says Part 5

Feeling a bit less angry at the world now that I’ve recovered from the stomach bug. I did have fun last weekend at our girls’ getaway despite sinus issues. Nice catching up with everyone and eating yummy things :) Onto some silly Owenisms Owen: (quoting his book) I want to be an engineer when I […]

Rant Ahead

Week 25 of misery. I look back at how badly I wanted to get pregnant and I feel like that was a different person. Now I’m just a sack incubating this thing that will come out and pee and poop and cry and keep us up all night. Ok, I had a particularly bad week. […]
