A New Year, A New Word

Goals, resolutions, word of the year, and new beginnings flood websites and the general environment come January 1st. For most, it’s just another day. Even after the proclamations of change, a few weeks later, most people are the same as they were on December 31st. For those who continue,  it’s a push-pull of old and […]

A Letter to My Younger Self: Keep Going

Normally, I don’t write a letter to my younger self or consider thinking about “what if” or “regret” posts. Rarely do I feel like the grass is greener.

My Little Minions

Evidence surrounds us that school is back in session. My son is gone all day, and is considering which athletic teams he would like to join, I’m homeschooling my daughters and more than anything, my mommy friends don’t have children at home to visit. No more pool trips, alone at the beach and visits to […]

The Best is Yet to Come

Clouds roll in and sprinkle the city with warm rain as I sit here at my computer alone.

Getting used to the quiet is difficult, spending my days with three loud and rambunctious children hardly lends […]

The Last Three Beeps

I wonder if I can ever hear that sound again and not have tears rush from my eyes like Niagara Falls. Beep, beep, beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee… Those last three beeps. Last night, I was watching Grey’s Anatomy. SPOILER ALERT.  Honestly, I wasn’t watching Grey’s Anatomy, I was watching something else On Demand. That show ended five minutes before […]

An Unusual Week of Feeling Accomplished

At the end of my world, I want to know I did something, affected someone, completed something. The days I hate most are the ones that I feel like nothing got done, including spending time with my children. I have days like that. Days where I do “stuff” all day long, but by the time […]

Thankfully, It’s Friday #TToT #FTSF

I awoke Tuesday morning ready to take on the day as usual… trying to balance mommying, working and housework. The day didn’t start out as normal though. One thing was off. Well, more specifically, one little one. Butterfly was not fluttering around as she typically does. Breakfast was light, a Cheerio or two was all […]

Will #EpicFail Go Away? #FTSF

Follow my blog with Bloglovin When I think of the term “Epic Fail”, I think of a new sprung industry of nonsense. At first, there were interesting pictures of a night of cooking gone awry to burning down a house… then it turned to a constant barrage of fixing grammar and random accidents. Granted I can […]
