The Year: 2010 – The Mission: Survive


Being 36, the older I get the faster time travels. Minutes suddenly go by in seconds…I am not sure how to scientifically explain that, but it’s true. Yesterday my child was crawling out of her crib (or as she called it, her cage) and today she is about to lose her 2nd tooth and playing Wii Bowling like a champ. Last week my stepdaughter was asking me if I was her mom and this week she is intent on reminding me that I am not. And it was only a year ago I wore that J.Crew bikini I loved so much and this past summer I was sizing up tents for beach wear. How does this happen?

Calendars lie and clocks deceive…and memories are becoming harder to retrieve.

In this nostalgic, nauseating doldrum, I think it is appropriate to take a look back on 2010. This post will be dedicated to the year in photos. I will write a separate one which promises to be far more boring with less visual effects, more tears and a shit load of bitching.

So many things that seem to never change, some I wish never would and others which do perpetually.

Ahhh…the balmy Wisconsin winters…nothing like snow bathin’

Why is there some resemblance? I swear I didn't fuck a snowman.


Two furry, one ferocious

Me with all my girls...Daughter, Stepdaughter and Nieces

Many summer days on the beach...or at least near it

Sunsets, goo and floating far, far away

Water = Fun (almost always)

About Heather Rayne

I am a mom, wife, writer, volunteer, eater of food, lover of animals and avid TV enthusiast. I am opinionated, honest, compassionate and sensitive. I can also be difficult, hard headed and emotional. I consider myself to have a great sense of humor and am very attracted to that in others. I am striving to live an authentic life. I am attempting to learn how to find happiness in the now. I always have hope to be a better person. That being said - I can be vulgar, negative and even a little bitchy at times. I say what I mean and my filter is often dysfunctional. With me, what you see is what you get. I have strong opinions and am quick to speak my mind. This can cause problems from time to time but I do not ever intend to hurt or offend anyone. With that - be warned. I do hope you enjoy my site. Thanks for visiting and have a swell day.
