So what have I been up to lately? Hmm… let’s see…
- The girls are both back in school. Addah went to school all summer but she was just swimming, playing, chilling… now she’s back to a real curriculum, 4k-style. Lakin is in 1st grade and we got an awesome teacher (not that they aren’t all awesome, just sayin’). She has two best friends, who by coincidence went to Addah’s school, so they all know each other. Lakin is going home with her best friends next Friday for her first unattended-by-Mama playdate and she’s extremely excited.
- I’m chairing a major fundraising committee for the school — the spring carnival. It’s not until May 2 but preparations and planning have commenced. I am in volunteer recruiting mode and trying not to become overwhelmed at whether or not I have what it takes to make this happen.
- I have been knitting like a madwoman trying to hold her sanity together with needles and yarn…. wait. Hmm. Okay, so maybe it’s not like that, it is that. Semantics. I’ve also taught myself how to crochet and have become somewhat addicted to making full-size amigurumi-style dolls. Here’s the first…. a blond girl who kind of screams LUNA at me. She’s also not 100% finished but Doll #2 overtook me so Doll #1 must wait a bit.
- I’m working! I know, holy shit, hold on to your hats and all that. I’m doing freelance web design, at home yes, but still, it’s work and it pays real actual cash money. It was rather nice to pay my rent for this month before it was late. Hell, our power bill is paid. It’s… an unusual but very nice feeling.

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
