I honestly cannot believe I haven’t made a “real” post until now. I have too much going that I really have more than enough to post about but simply no time to. My apologies and I promise to keep my madness a little more updated.

Mark is on his way home in a couple of days for a couple of weeks of R&R. This really couldn’t be coming at a better time as I’m starting to feel like I could truly lose my mind. That and Raelyn’s birthday is coming up which I’m really happy he’s going to get to be here for. I, of course, have certain anxieties and fears over his coming home which is to be expected but all in all it will be a good thing.

Raelyn has been kicking some major butt in preschool. She comes home with a TON of artwork everytime and, despite some seperation issues when we bring her in, she always comes home telling me about what a good time she had. Somehow they get her to nap PRECISELY from 1-3PM. I’m not sure how but this alone makes her teachers freaking miracle workers. I can’t get her to nap anymore until at LEAST 4PM which is completely wearing me thin so this is something I’m going to be bringing up during my first parent/teacher conference(!) next week. Teach me teacher… I never claimed to know everything as a parent so anything they can give me is very much welcomed. I love her teachers. I would wish them upon anyone. I wish they would come to my house and entertain my little ray of sunshine so I can fold and put away laundry without getting the overwhelming urge to climb in the dresser drawer after them just for some peace and quiet. Such is life.

I’ve been trying to think of a proper way to kick off this new blog and I’ve decided that the best way to go about this would be to keep it short and sweet. There really isn’t too much going on anyhow other than it being a completely gorgeous day outside today. Why sit here in front of the computer when I should have all of the windows thrown open and then go outside to enjoy the day while my house airs out it’s musty winter feel to it? I honestly can’t think of a good enough reason not to so I apologize. Not only that but I’ve been suffering from a cold so my thoughts are a bit scattered to begin with. I’ll produce a better post when I’m a little less congested. 😉


Hello everyone. I'm Maryanne. I'm 26 years old. I've been engaged to my boyfriend of 5+ years, Mark, since December 2007. He's currently serving with Operation Iraqi Freedom. We have a very adored 3 year old daughter together. I'm currently a SAHM with a lot on my mind. I'm looking to use this blog as an outlet in a way. I feel as though I have about a thousand thoughts running through my head at any given moment and I'm hoping that by blogging what I feel I won't inevitably lose my mind! So go get yourself a cup of coffee or tea (your choice), put your feet up, and take a few minutes with me. I enjoy the company!

Also, I have set up an area for comments so please feel free to share any of your own thoughts, feelings, rants, etc. to what I post. Thank you for visiting!
