The calm after the storm

My house is quiet now, almost too quiet.  After 3 days of having 4 of our kids in the house and my niece for a night, just 2 of us are home.   The 3 year old is taking his first nap since Wednesday.  He must be feeling the post holiday let down.  All thisContinue reading “The calm after the storm”

Living the Life you Want

There are 24 hrs in a day, some say that’s not enough.  There are 7 days in a week, 365 days in a year…again it never seems like enough.  If we are lucky we get that first 24 hrs, we go to bed and we wake up with a whole other 24 hours to live.Continue reading “Living the Life you Want”
