Today while playing on Pinterest I accidentally ran across this little quip.

I laughed and then naturally Googled "misophonia." Jokingly I started reading the symptoms and discovered I have almost all of the symptoms except social repression. To my despair Michael diagnosed me with the disorder and informed me that blinking too loud is impossible, being annoyed by being awakened by the stirring of coffee is not normal, and that biting your fork when eating dinner is not the end of the world.

It is a sad day in the McIlroy house (for me at least) Michael is happy to know he has proof that I am crazy. We've always known we were a dangerous combination because he is deaf and LOUD and I have super sonic hearing and I like my quiet. Despite our 'disorders' we are probably still one o the most in love and happy couples you will meet.

There is no cure or treatment for misophonia. As of 5 minutes ago I informed Lacey that she and I will create the treatment and become well respected in the newly created field of misophonia. (he he he) Way to look at the glass half full right?!

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:

I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
