Tuesday’s are the worst

I hadn’t noticed it before the stay at home order, but since it started, Tuesday’s seem to be the hardest day of the week.  Yesterday, was no different.  For some reason our emotions are always higher on Tuesday’s, but we look for the good. We always get out of the house on Tuesday’s for anContinue reading “Tuesday’s are the worst”

It is 2020 people!!!!

Last night my husband and I stood in the kitchen and talked as I was preparing dinner.  Then again while we were tidying up from dinner.  A conversation that was making my heart ache.  How could someone the on the outside seemed so much like me, think something so different?  Believe that this behavior wasContinue reading “It is 2020 people!!!!”

Endure & Let Go

I am a huge Survivor fan.  As I sit here and watch the latest episode, I am thinking about what we are currently going through here in Michigan.  One of the participants said that she needs 2 tattoos.  One on the left arm that says endure and one on the right that says let go. Continue reading “Endure & Let Go”

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 coupleContinue reading “I’m Giving Grace for That!”

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.

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 likeContinue reading “A Good Tuesday”

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. 5Continue reading “Week 5 of Quarantine”

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 thisContinue reading “Words to Live by Wednesday 4/8 #40in2020”

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,Continue reading “Helpers”

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 allContinue reading “Hardest day so far!”
