The Scoop

So here's the scoop.

I left my computer on, sitting on a side table in our family room, with the Bell stick plugged in. It was sticking out past the edge of the table. Dumb move....YUP!!! Meanwhile our six year old son was busy playing a Hot Wheels game on the Wii.

A couple things to note about that...first of all, this Hot Wheels game does not require one to jump, move, swing, or make any big movements....secondly, JUMP, MOVE, SWING and make BIG movements is exactly what my darling son was doing. Thirdly, darling son is totally oblivious when jumping, moving, swinging, and making BIG movements in his game.

Result....
Darling son's backside met poor unsuspecting bell stick and in a brief little instant, my internet service was history :(

Of course our saga can't end there. Turns out that Bell stick meets little boy's butt is not covered under warranty. UGH!!

Sore little boy's butt, many days, and Much money later.....Yippee, internet service restored.

A New Year, A New Day, A New Blog!

A long time has past since my last post on Darkness to Life. That blog is special to me. It helped me find a place to be me. I could be honest about what I was feeling and get it out of my mind and off my heart. People often asked about the title and why I called it that. When I started that blog that was really how I felt. I felt like I was in the dark, struggling to find out who I was, and where my life was going.

Do I have that all figured out? Nope, but I don't feel like I am in the dark anymore. So many wonderful things have happen in the last year and a half. Has it been hard? Absolutely. Have there been amazing blessings? Unbelievably so. I am not in the same place in my head or my heart now and I want to show that.

With the start of this new year (yes I realize we are already in february lol) I wanted to give my blog a fresh look, and a new name. This is my journey. This is Me. I am Jess. So, this new blog is


"My Journey of Jess"

I welcome you. I thank you for coming to visit along my journey. I hope you will come back and visit again. Please share your thoughts with me.
I have so much I want to write about.....my 3 beautiful boys, my faith, our 'adventures' this past year, my struggles as a wife, a mom, a woman in her late 30's, my journey to get healthy and lose a 'bunch' of weight, ...and so much more.

I hope that you will find my story interesting. That it might make you laugh, make you cry, give you hope, maybe even inspire.

This is my life.
This is my journey.
Come walk a while with me.
