I’m Giving Grace for That!

So…we have been home for nearly 7 weeks now. I quit smoking on February 24th, like 2.5 weeks before the shut down.  What are the chances?  I don’t know what specifically made me choose that date, but it felt good so I did.  I’ll be honest and tell you that I have caved a couple […]

Staying At Home

We have now been home for 6.5 weeks.  Today starts week 7 of Homeschooling and the good news is, we have 7 weeks left!  We have made it about half way through. Last week my husband had Wednesday through Friday off of work.  Back in November he had requested the week off, because we were […]

A Good Tuesday

Tuesday’s are the day that I cry.  Well, for the last 5 weeks anyway.  In this Quarantine, Tuesday’s have seemed to be the hardest day for me. They are the day I am most worried, most anxious and get the bad news.  They are the days that I am emotional, exhausted and never feel like […]

Week 5 of Quarantine

As of today, we have been home for 5 full weeks.  5 weeks that my kids haven’t been at school, seen their friends and just gone out to do their normal things.  5 weeks that I haven’t worked as a substitute teacher.  5 weeks since the older 3 kids have been to our house. 5 […]

Words to Live by Wednesday 4/8 #40in2020

We are here in some uncharted territory.  Finding ourselves navigating the day to day, but we aren’t even sure how.  Asking questions of why and when. Faith is the answer to all of my questions.  Having faith that the choices I am making are the right ones.  Having faith that we will know when this […]

Helpers

Having the ability to stay at home with my children is one of the biggest blessings of my life. However, being forced to STAY HOME with my children, well that is another story. Lol! My husband goes off to work every day, Monday through Friday. That I definitely do not envy. While he is gone, […]

Hardest day so far!

I cried a lot of tears on Saturday. I mean technically it started before I even went to bed on Friday night. It was after midnight though, so I am saying Saturday was the rough day. I needed to yell and to scream. Permission to be crazy, act vulnerable and admit that this is all […]

Crazy Things We Do

For a few months now I have been thinking about getting a second dog.  I hadn’t really said much out loud because the last time we had two dogs, it didn’t turn out well. Read about that here Ten Minutes: Yesterday… Anyhow, after everything started shutting down due to COVID-19 my feed was flooded with […]

Long Time Gone

I haven’t written in nearly 3 months now. Things get busy, the to-do list starts piling up and inevitably something gets lost in the shuffle. Well, more often than not it is my writing. It has been crazy here over the last few weeks. For those of you who don’t know me in real life, […]
