Just Days after my surrogacy babies were born!

A 6 week group coaching group will be offered for people having trouble conceiving, who want to bring their baby home through surrogacy.

The group will begin on July 14th, 2015 and continue for five consecutive weeks.  The group will be held on Tuesdays at 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM.  People will gather on a Bridgeline over the phone.  The Dial In Number and Meeting ID will be provided once you have registered.  Group members will be able to communicate with one another between calls through a Forum called Surrogacy Rocks here on the blog site.  Materials for the group will be available through a box.  Details as to how to gain access to the box will be made known once you have signed up for the group.  Be prepared to complete Action Steps between calls!

Make arrangements soon, because space is limited.  I hope to meet you in the group coaching group.

Gift to Self: A Composter!

My birthday was Wednesday and I turned 55.  I don’t know what the typical 55 year old wants for their birthday, if there even is such a thing, but I do know what I wanted and what I got!  I have been eyeing composters for about 5 years now.  I even wanted to start a composting pile a number of years back.  I just was stumped by how I was going to mix the compost pile.  Just looks like back breaking work.  It wasn’t until I found one of these upright ones, which sets on a stand, well off the ground and can be spun by the handles on the side, that I figured out how to bypass the back breaking limitations that kept giving me so much pause.  So when my birthday was coming around this year, I knew just what I wanted!  I wanted the Rolls Royce of composters, of course!   Fortunately, the boxes, shipped through Amazon’s prime, arrived the day before my birthday, in time for me to arrange to have John, our handy man, put it together.  I was so happy having John out back assembling the darn thing, while the boys buzzed about.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ME!

You see it all fits in with my core value that you have to give back to the earth and you must actively work at in the spring and the fall.  What is cool about the Composter is that it will allow me to pursue this purpose and passion throughout the entire year.  I will be working on creating “black gold” year round.  The more black gold I help to create, the greater my bounty from my own garden.  And not for nothin, the produce will be more nutritious for my family too!

Does a mother ever get to fully sleep?


Cousin Brycie Reading to the Boys before Bed

My 5 year old twins are away for the weekend with my little brother Will and his family.  This weekend was supposed to be my chance to get a break and focus just on me, while I am recovering from spinal surgery.  I had big plans too.  I was supposed to go out for breakfast with my brother, Charlie, and a childhood friend, Dianne, was coming in from Kent for the afternoon.  But everything got dashed by the darn flu!  Bummer!  Now I tell you what, Recovery meets Flu meets Fibro is a complete pain in the neck!

This weekend is the first time the boys and I have been separated, without anyone being in the hospital, in more than five years.  What I’ve noticed before I got sick is that I’ve slept like a log.  The sleep was just been of a deeper quality than I can generally possibly attain.  Maybe there is something to that old wives’ tale that a mother sleeps with one eye open!
