An anniversary, of sorts

July 31, 2013

1 year ago today, this happened. It’s very hard to describe what all has happened during this past year of me being out of full-time work, because I’ve experienced such a huge range of emotions.

They think I’m WAC-y!

May 6, 2013

Last night I attended the annual staff appreciation event the WAC holds, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. Ryan stayed home to watch the girls and at first I was very skeptical of going alone since I hate doing stuff like that by myself, but I’m glad I ended up going. […]

That’s how long I want to live. Longer, actually.

Lost

December 31, 2012

“I just don’t feel like ‘me’ anymore…” I’ve often heard people say things along those lines and could never really understand what they meant. What do you mean you don’t feel like you? That doesn’t make any sense. Until now. I just don’t feel like “me” anymore. I don’t feel like Jocelyn; I just feel […]

Here I sit at 9:30 on a Thursday night. Folding the last of the day’s laundry by the light of the Christmas tree, Lana drifting off to sleep on the couch beside me. Her snuffles and grunts on the pacifier are slowly becoming quieter the closer she gets to the night’s slumber. Not that folding […]
