Let The Spring Sports Season Begin!

Soccer started this week for Cael, Cason, and Grace. They had their first game on Tuesday. It looks like they had a lot of fun. Below are some pictures that I took at the games. Cooper was so excited to see the twins and Uncle Brent! All during the game he kept asking if he could go say hi to the twins and Uncle Brent. It was pretty cute! Oh, by the way, I have added another widget to my side bar. It is to a blog called Chubby Cheeks Thinks. The blog was just started by my friend Kim. She has great reviews, recipes, coupons, giveaways and more! Go check out her blog and leave her some love!

Post Hysterectomy Depression?

***Disclaimer-This post is a woe is me. So, if you don't feel like reading it then don't. And if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all! :-) *******

I am just wondering if there is a post hysterectomy depression, kind of like post partum depression. I have been in such a funk lately. It seems like all I do is cry and usually over the stupidest things. I have been trying to get out of the house more and stay busy thinking that will help get me out of this funk. But, that isn't even working. I am still having a very hard time knowing that I cannot have anymore children. It makes me feel like such a failure, especially being LDS. Don't get me wrong, I know how lucky I am to have 2 healthy, beautiful children, but it is still very hard. I see baby clothes and just get so sad that I can't buy them anymore. We have 5 people in our family right now who are pregnant and although I am so very happy for all of them, it definitely makes me sad. So, if anyone has any thoughts as to how I can deal with all this, please let me know. I just ask that you be gentle.

Is It Spring Yet?

The weather has been absolutely beautiful the past several days! This is most definitely one of my favorite times of year. This winter has been so mild compared to the other winters that we have lived in Washington. I don't think that the groundhog got it right for us in the Columbia Basin. If this is what another 6 weeks of winter looks like, we will take it for sure!
