Making the connection

Sometimes all it takes to inspire me to continue on is making a connection with someone else. Even if it's as simple as saying "Hey you live in the same geographical area as I do, how cool is that?!" See the new "I'm a New England Blogger" button on the side bar for proof ;-)

Life is moving on outside my window, Summer is winding down. Labor Day weekend is 5 days away and it's my DH birthday to boot. Lots to celebrate or at least distract me from this downward spiral of depression and stress I find myself in. Still no progress being made on the pregnancy front. Once again the medical giant Blue Cross Blue Shield has proven that they will try at every turn to screw the subscriber over until I am so frustrated with the lack of progress that I am reduced to a quivering ball of stress, oozing on the floor.


  1. Hey JD! John from Young House Love here dropping in to make sure you got my email asking for your paint choices and address in our Valspar giveaway. Maybe my email got snagged in your spam folder. Could you shoot me a note at so we can get your prize headed your way? Thanks!


  2. Happy New Year, New England Bloggers!

    Our 1-year anniversary is coming up Jan 27. To mark the occasion I am going to put up a Mr. Linky on the evening of Mon, Jan 25. If you'd like to write a post about living in NE, your favorite places to visit, funny stories and stereotypes, recipes, photos of our gorgeous landscape, anything, it would be great if you would link in. I'd also like a little idea of # of participants, if you could just send me a reply.
    I apologize if you are getting this twice. Many people haven't given me emails so I have to leave it in the comments.
