Limbo

I haven’t written in quite a bit. Jordan and I have been busy settling in to our new place. It was a risking decision, because it’s over our budget and I am still unemployed but so far it’s been worth it for the friends we’ve had over for conversation, dinner and fro-yo. It’s our first … Continue reading

One Week

[since you looked at me, cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry"] (Barenaked Ladies? Circe 1998? Anyone?) But seriously, a lot has changed in just this one week. Last week I left you all on a cliffhanger, since then the cliffhanger has disappeared because the circumstances have changed, however for the sake … Continue reading

Peace

Jordan and I are on the verge of a big change. I haven’t asked him if I can blog about it yet, but I will once he feels it’s okay. No I’m not pregnant. Normally the thought of this big of a change would give me severe anxiety. But I’m bizarrely peaceful, which only makes … Continue reading

Share

Thursday January 23rd was Jordan’s 24th birthday and because he’s such a hard worker he was…at work on a shoot. But we’re going to Block Island this weekend for a mini adventure to make up for it. I’m getting over a head cold so my mind could only concentrate on that and not whether or … Continue reading

Open

Last weekend was difficult. I’m not going to sugar coat it, because I’m tired of society sugar coating things, why can’t we be honest? Vulnerable even? I’m going to be open, so be gentle with me. Last weekend was difficult. Jordan was away on a shoot and I didn’t really have anything to do. Now, … Continue reading

Two Revelations

Monday the 6th was my official last day, and already I feel a change. I picked up per diem shifts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Bizarrely there was a vast difference in how I felt on Monday and how I felt on Tuesday. I was goofy with the girls, messing around with them, and felt entirely … Continue reading

Love

Jordan and I are looking at a place today to possibly move to. Is it insane for us to be thinking of moving while I’m out of work? Probably, but we’re still looking. Anyway, I made up a ‘rating sheet’ for apartments and I was searching for it when I came across a paper I … Continue reading

New Season

Jordan and I are about to embark in a new chapter in our marriage. My last day of full time work at the group home is Monday, January 6th. Am I staying on per diem? Yes, I couldn’t not. I have a permanent metaphorical umbilical cord to that place. Do I have another full time … Continue reading

The Good House: Halloween 2013

Since we’ve been married, Jordan and I have been unable to pass out Halloween candy together due to my work schedule. So it was such a treat (no pun intended) to realize that this year we were going to be able to. Naturally I immediately became over excited, bought a ton of candy, glow sticks … Continue reading
