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!

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 withContinue reading “Crazy Things We Do”

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,Continue reading “Long Time Gone”

Happiness

Waiting on people to validate you and what you are to make you happy is nonsense. Look around at the people closest to you. Are you sharing love, laughs and smiles? Then you are doing just fine. Be who you are and make no apologies. Don’t wait for accolades and praise. Be comfortable with yourselfContinue reading “Happiness”

My Best Friends

What are the odds that my 2 very best friends in this entire world were born on the same day.  A number of years apart, but on the very same day.  There must be something written somewhere that I can’t find, that says someone born on August 17th will do well with people who areContinue reading “My Best Friends”

One week in

We are 1 week past the new year here.  Depending on what you started, finished, took on or resolved you may already be able to see some changes. This morning I woke up and did my Yoga for the 8th day in a row.  I weighed and measured myself.  We will keep those numbers private,Continue reading “One week in”
