Don’t get me wrong I love hanging out and playing certain things with them but when it comes to things that involve imagination that’s where things get sketchy.

The First Journey- Part 2

The night after I had gone to the doctors started out uneventful. Relaxed for a bit and went to bed at 10 pm. I woke up an hour later and thought my water was leaking and I was cramping about every 5 minutes. I piddled around for about an hour while texting with my mom,… Continue reading The First Journey- Part 2
