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.
My DD asked me yesterday what it means to be "grounded" because her friend keeps telling her he is going to tell on her for things and she is going to get grounded. We don't ground her. When your six, I'm not even sure what that would entail. But, today, I'm grounding myself in a… Continue reading I’m Grounding Myself! My One Word 2016
So, last year we had a quiet night at home on New Year's Eve. My husband was leaving for a work trip early and so we went to bed early. This year, we're at my in-laws, but with my cold hitting the hardest today, I may be in bed early again. I slept on the… Continue reading 2014 – In with a whisper, out with a cough…
Well, I've missed a bit of the countdown. Yesterday we traveled to my in-laws and I started feeling a bit more sick (I think I mentioned I might be getting sick). Today I spent most of the day in dental offices with my husband, who needs a root canal. Ever tried to find a dentist,… Continue reading Countdown to 2015 – Two! One!
(This post contains affiliate links) That's right...three days left until 2015. I feel like I may be getting sick. I'm hoping it will pass, but we shall see.

Well, four days until 2015 now. So, as I said earlier, I thought I would choose a word or phrase for 2015. It is a popular notion nowadays. There is My One Word, One Word 365, as well as many one word challenges out there on blogs. I am not sure I like the idea… Continue reading Countdown to 2015 – FOUR!
Christmas crash and New Year anticipation! Yup...I'm one of those people who seems to crash a bit emotionally after Christmas. So much build up, so little Christmas day. But, I recover quickly as I anticipate a new year and all that comes with it. I do realize that the 31st and 1st are days… Continue reading Six Word Saturday – Post-Christmas, Pre-New Year’s Edition
Five days until 2015 rolls into town. It seems like the years go by in the blink of an eye. I know that is quite cliche, but it is true for the most part. I don't feel like I've lived five years since coming home from the hospital with Bean and her new heart, but… Continue reading Countdown to 2015 – FIVE!
Well, Five Minute Friday is on vacation for two weeks, so I'll be winging it alone today (but if you're looking for a good Friday meme for your blog, check out the link above and you can start to participate in the new year). I'm just going to write for the five minutes and not… Continue reading Five Minute Friday is on Vacation!
Starting over is always an option. I realize that the new year was only six short weeks ago, but I need a do over! So, instead of waiting for the start of another month or even another week, I'm starting over today. I'm not totally sure what this means other than I feel like I… Continue reading Six Word Saturday – Starting Over
