About Me

My photo
My name is Robin. I live to create - anything I can do with my hands and my head. I'm a messy creator - an imperfect creator who loves beauty and aesthetic with a real edge. This isn't a blog about perfection - its a blog about the beauty in real life - the small triumphs and epic failures - trying to get homework done with a tired 5 year old after a 12 hour day and still getting a smidge of weaving in before the crash. Figuring out what the dream is when you finally realize its not the house and the car. Its about not letting the years get the best of you and cherishing all that you love in life. Mostly its just a place for me to put all the things that I love and that inspire me.

Sad, excited, exhausted... geeze what a week!

Well, I had a feeling May would be more eventful! And it has started with a bang! First and foremost in my mind at the moment is that Brian and I have a meeting with a birth mother! We are so excited and nervous! I won't say more than that till after things progress a little, but I have barely been able to keep my head on straight since we got the call on Thursday.
Other news was not so good this week. One of our close co-workers who is very young was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer stage 4. This was very shocking to everyone and especially to Brian who worked very closely with her. The sadness has kind of permeated everything this week.
Work has been a basket case because we are down one TD so I have been frantic and I am exhausted tonight. Azra was sick last night and scared Ajda with some crazy projectile vomiting, Elvis - Ajda's husband just had surgery and can't move so she came over with Azra and I drove with her to the ER. Poor baby, Azra really did not look good at all, she was moaning and shaking. Anyway after being in the ER for awhile waiting for the doctor to see her she passed a big poot and fell asleep quite peacefully! So we got home about 11:00 and Ajda felt so bad for dragging me out but I told her that I am sure I will be calling her in the middle of the night when we have a baby frantic about something, I mean that's what friends are for right?
AND next Friday we leave for our little Boston mini vacation, flea market here I come! I will be knee deep in old buttons and Bakelite jewelry and chowder soon!
I think we will paint the baby room this weekend! Will post pics!


  1. I knew it would happen fast for you! :0) I will keep your friends in my prayers. It is difficult to have such good and exciting things happening at the same time as very difficult and sad stuff. Let me know if there is anything I can do!

  2. That brought happy tears to my eyes! I can't even imagine what my adoptive family was going through when they found out I had chosen to meet with them! :) I will keep you all in my prayers and can't wait to hear more from you about everything.

    I'm sorry to hear about all of the sad situations that have been going on around you all.

    The vacation sounds like a blast! :-)

  3. Robin! We are SO excited for you and Brian!!! You two will definitely be in our thoughts while you move forward with the meeting!!! Please keep us updated- you know so many people will be waiting to hear! Hope you have a wonderful vacation :)
