I am joining Five Minute Friday again this week. This week's prompt is "excuse". Here goes: This seems like a particularly meaningful prompt this week. I have had a rough couple of weeks. Really, a rough couple of months. Although many things have gone well, other things have gone off the rails. And for each… Continue reading Five Minute Friday – Excuse
Life is an oxymoron. In my case, the stress is on the moron end of things right now. I am realizing that another year is almost gone and I have not changed much in my life in these 315 or so days. And then I realized that much of that is because I don't even… Continue reading I want…less, but I also want more.
Tomorrow is the first day of Fall 2017 for me and my DD. We each begin in new classes, with new faces (some familiar, but many new) and for me, at least, a new focus. This summer, I used #summeroffun2017 on my photos and as a reminder of what I wanted this summer to be… Continue reading Fall 2017 – Semester of Less…and More
I feel like I'm suffering massive mood shifts this week. I'm not sure what is up, but here are some of the feelings I'm having: Exhaustion. I don't know why. I have been sleeping plenty. But, I don't think I'm sleeping well. I am scheduled for an MRI on my shoulder on Thursday for a… Continue reading Tuesday Truth: Exhausted, Inspired and Lost – Can I be them all?
I'm back with another Ultimate Bundle Challenge Check-in! This time, I'm reviewing my experience with "Stretched Too Thin" an online e-course from Jessica Turner who wrote The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You (which is on my reading list, but ironically, I haven't had time to read it). This is a 10-day course that focuses on… Continue reading Ultimate Bundle Challenge Check-in #2 – Stretched Too Thin Pt. 1
Well, here I am to check in on how my Ultimate Bundle Challenge is going. This being my first check-in, I am obviously still feeling pretty enthusiastic about the whole thing. To bring you up to speed, I chose one ebook (actually turned out to be a podcast instead, but I will get to that… Continue reading Ultimate Bundle Challenge Check-in Number One – Momming Through Tough Times
If you're online reading blogs or belong to any email newsletters that have to do with homemaking, parenting, faith, or organizing, you've probably seen the advertisements for The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle for 2017. Let me start by saying I am not an affiliate. I am simply a desperate homemaker, mom, faith-seeker, organizationally challenged reader who… Continue reading The Year of Living the Ultimate Bundle
Affiliate links included. They give me a little back if you find something you like! I have not lived life on a straight line. Heck, I don't think I was always moving the same direction. But, I've realized that, despite the mistakes I've made (which have been many) and the struggles I've had (many brought… Continue reading Be More…Accepting: When Life Goes Wrong or So You Think…
I said I was going to start this two weeks ago and missed both the last Mondays. Sad, but true. But, here I am posting just before Monday ends. But, the linkup will be open all week and I hope that some of you will join up this first week. I'm sure it will be… Continue reading More Followers Monday #1 – Join Up!
I'm back with another in the Be More series of posts. Today, I want to discuss the idea of "money leaks," although I think in our case, the term should be money floods. I think of money leaks as those places where you don't really think about how much money you're spending until you sit… Continue reading Be More: Financial – Plugging up money leaks
