funny -

I just looked at my Google Reader's suggested items to read. 

Guess who showed up?


Sometimes I wonder what these people on Google and Facebook are doing when they make their search engine logarithms.

TTC Tuesdays - An Opener

This is a new series for a new blog of mine that will post on all or most Tuesdays -
Trying to Conceive Tuesdays -TTC Tuesdays for short.

It will ramble through the many questions, frustrations, irony, and sarcastic/dry/dark/light/ridiculous humor that comes with living in the world of infertility.

Today's topic - An Opener

If you have told your family, friends, and
maybe the world
                (if you blog)
that you are trying to have a baby,
then any announcement comes with an assumption of
"You're pregnant!

So, when you have been going through infertility and
start a conversation with a friend by saying "I've got some news -"
be sure to say "and I'm not pregnant" as
quickly as you can.  

No need to have your friend to spread
fake news,
false hope,
or fantasy-ful ideas about how to get an in on the middle name of your future kid.

This is a re-post from the trial version of this blog.  If you're read it before, thanks for checking back in. :)

The land.

It's an interesting thing,
having grown up in a small town that was
very much tied to the country
                       (that is, rural-land-country)
being brought up by parents
who were from a town of less than 300,
my entire sense of balance is completely off when
it just isn't quite right -
"it" being "the land."

It wasn't until snow came back this past month that
I started to feel any sense of normalcy with
how the weather has been.

When global warming was the pre-climate change
and people actually were a little ok with
El Nino
making winters tolerable
and early March balmy,
it didn't bother me that the snow
wasn't falling and the
robins came back earlier.

But this past winter, where we've received almost
no snow
and the drought that started two years ago
kept going
and the ground was dusty from brown dirt
instead of
white snow...
it felt wrong.

Yes, I hate how winter drags on, and
yes, I much, much prefer spring to fall
                                  (sorry, but autumn is a distinct #2 on my list),
but if there isn't snow in winter,
then it's just not right.

So thankfully I now have some snow.
And it will be gone (mostly) with tomorrow's sun, and
back (mostly) with
the next five day's predicted snowfall.

I feel right, now,
that I can be officially and
sick of
and that's because
it's a little bit more right
the land.

Welcome [again]

Welcome [again]:

I'm a
warrior in christ
and a warrior's wife
and a warrior, who's a wife.

My name, Laura, means victory.

I am victorious in Christ, and hope to,
                                                         be victorious in life. 

Here is a blog that I'm [re-]starting, which will be about many, many things,
but I hope it can be both a place just to write and,
primarily, an encouragement to those out there who are
and non-Christians,
people just trying to fight the good fight.

Welcome to
                   The Warrior Wife.
