"Mindful Birthing" - Nancy Bardacke CNM
4.5 / 5 stars

My friend runs a ministry in a near-by city. It is basically "Sunday School" (though on Wednesdays,) where she teaches unchurched kids from ROUGH homes and neighborhoods, about the love of Christ. Every year she takes the kids to a Christian Ad... Read more
I've been wanting to get started on my gardens at the new house basically since we moved in. There are a LOT of spaces to be worked on. (All of which were completely neglected by the previous homeowners so they are all in AWFUL condition.) I wil... Read more
Friday I worked my normal 9 hour shift, then was planning on heading to Hubby's band gig. I don't get to see them often, and this pub is typically quiet and not drunk-people-filled. I got ready to head out after work, hopped in my car and about ... Read more
Mother's Day has been rough for me for my whole adult life. Originally, I had been told I wouldn't ever naturally conceive. (Ha! guess God showed them!) So Mother's Day was always a painful reminder that I would never be a "mother." (Granted,... Read more

The weather is FINALLY warming up enough for me to get out walking and hiking. It was a LONG winter. Being preggo made me especially antsy to get out and walk, too, to stay healthy for baby and myself. The first nice day I did a 3 mile walk to t... Read more
Small backstory... I started seeing a therapist about 9 years ago when I was in a terribly abusive relationship (physically, sexually, but terribly emotionally.) My employer pays for 10 free sessions a year, so since then. if I'm having issues,... Read more
Well we finally got some nice weather~! 72 and sunny! Woohoo! Spent a few hours in the morning raking by Grandma and Grandpa's house. It is truly a blessing to be able to help them. They mean so much to me. (Plus, I just love being outside.) I s... Read more
Ok, so .... I feel like I NEED to blog, this has been holding my mind captive ALL DAY. (And as my status indicates, since it woke me up at 3:20 am and wouldn't let me go back to sleep.) However, I don't think it's 'safe' for me to blog right now... Read more
