Tales From the Crypt

Okay, not really the crypt, but it does seem like I’ve been dead, doesn’t it? I’ve been getting complaints about being gone too long,so I thought I’d let you all know what’s up. What I forgot to tell you in my previous post is that I was going to be gone for a week, but it was going to take me a week to get ready as well. Ha ha ha. I’m sure you all understand…you know, clean the house, make sure hubby has food so he doesn’t starve, pack gobs and gobs of clothing and unnecessary items for yourself and your toddlers, etc. etc. So I actually left for my vacation on last Thursday and took two days to arrive. I will be leaving to come back on Saturday and will arrive back home on Sunday. Fortunately, my sister has a computer which enables me to write this right here. I’m sorry you’ve all been feeling neglected…
…but I’m having fun! So far we’ve been to IKEA, Cirque Du Soleil, the Science Museum, several malls, and today we’re going to the ZOO. This has just been one booked trip. We’ve also enjoyed, exploding ovaries, chairs falling on children, children falling on children, burst water lines, and a bit of sleep deprivation. I’m enjoying hanging with my sister, but I do miss my hubby a lot, and I am looking forward to coming back home. I hope to have some fun pictures for you all. I tried to take some at the Cirque Du Soleil last night, but I got busted…whoops! So that is all folks. I may check in again if I get the chance! Love, Sarah


Spring Break

I’m headed off to hang with my sister over what I used to remember as Spring Break. I guess this is a bit of a break for me. While I wont be leaving the boys behind, I’ll still have a lot of help and we’ll be doing a ton of fun stuff. Yippee!! So anyways…if I’m not around much for the next week and a half that is why.
Hope you are all enjoying your breaks (if you’re lucky enough to get one!)

Anniversary Date

Kev and I had a fabulous sixth anniversary. We left the boys with Papa and Gramma Summer, and went snowboarding for the day. Seeing that neither of us have been working out for the last, well, six years, we were a little beat at the end of the day, but
we had a lot of fun none the less and really enjoyed our time alone together. I realized that I felt like a teenager again, following my hubby through the trees and gliding through the powder together. I also noticed that my hubby was trying to impress me flying off jumps and speeding past me. After sore calves and bruised ankles and feet (from ill-fitting boots, new ones next year!), we decided to call it a day for the boarding.
Then we headed off to one of our favorite restaurants, Juicy Lucy’s. BEST.STEAKS.IN.THE.WORLD. We had the window seat and had fun watching various people walk by, and at one point were making faces at two little girls, who started it, of course!
Then we headed off to the Hot Springs Pool, to meet Gramma and Papa with the boys. A perfect cap to our perfect day. And since we were so exhausted, coupled with the soak in the pool, we slept rather nicely that night. Mmmmmmm. Good Day!

Happy Anniversary, My Love.

Six years ago, tomorrow, we got married on a clear blue day. The sun was shining, but it was still rather chilly. We chose to get married in March so we could go snowboarding on our honeymoon during my spring break from college. Consequently, I failed one of my classes that semester- I was too busy planning the wedding and swooning over my soon to be husband. We did go snowboarding on our honeymoon, four days of snowy bliss. It still remains our most memorable trip to date. Those were the days. For snowboarding, I mean. Since then, the snowboarding has declined quite a bit, (being pregnant two winters is very inconvenient) but our love has grown stronger and deeper. We appreciate and understand each other better with each passing year. We have fought for and forged so much in our marriage. We really are one. I just don’t feel like myself without you. You are my supporter, my motivational speaker, my soft shoulder to cry on, my rationality, my admirer, my can-do man, my masseuse, my swift kick in the rear, my best friend, the sharer of my dreams, my dreamer, my idea guy, my fix-it man, you are my stability, my goof-ball, my rockstar, my moody musician, my sensitive manly man, my dark and handsome, more than I ever dreamed, more than I need, more than I asked for. My life is so full, so blessed, so fun, so interesting, because of you. To the end of our days, my darling, I will love you, and I can’t wait to hit the slopes with you tomorrow. Love, Sarah

As far as these go, I’d say the ISFJ more accurately describes me, but the ISFP occasionally comes out, and is what I often wish I were, but anyway…


I was about to apologize to all of my readers for not having interesting enough posts, and then I thought, “what’s not interesting about a one year old diving into his birthday cake?” Then I thought, well I just don’t feel like my life has been very interesting lately. I’ve been having a hard time coming up with things to post. But then I realized that my life isn’t boring either. I’ve just haven’t wrote about what has been going on because it’s sensitive, and I don’t want to sound like a whiner either. I think I just need to get some things off my chest and be done with it. Truth be told, I’ve been having a pretty rough two weeks or months depending on how you look at it. I’ve been feeling rather depressed and I’m not sure what is the main cause, or if there even is one, but I can pinpoint a bunch of little triggers. Like the fact that I had two migraines last week and several lesser headaches between. I haven’t been sleeping well because I’ve had really active dreams, you know the kind where you wake up in a bad mood because of what happens in them. However, I can’t remember what any of them was about (which is probably a good thing.) I’ve had a lot of mental anguish, which I probably could write a whole post about by itself. Things in my life are changing, some good, some not so much. I know that sometimes changes, even good ones, can bring about anxiety. The whether has been super crappy. After what I thought was going to be spring, we had a real snowy week. I was happy about spring coming and then I was stuck indoors without much sunlight all last week. So I’ve been down in the dumps a bit, but I’m feeling a little better just letting it all out. I have to say that my husband has been an incredible support through all of this-he’s been letting me cry on his shoulder and letting me talk it all out which is really what I’ve needed. My life really is good and I have a million and one things to be thankful for and I know I just need to focus on those instead of the bad. It’s just hard sometimes. So that is all. I know things are going to get better and I’m not going to stay in this place. Adapting and adjusting are just parts of life.
