When I Grow Up

I finally know what I want to be when I grow up!

Awesome, right?!

Except.... well except it's kinda too late. Not hopelessly too late, but, well, most days it feels that way.


Some people totally know from the get go, they want to be a teacher or a nurse or a scientist or whatever. And so they do. I so admire my many friends who have done exactly what they set out to do.

I'm going to rest and take a day or two to recharge ~ much love to you all!

It's Alright

How do y'all feel about a once a week on Saturday post?

I sit here, it's 7:43 am on Tuesday. By my alarm I am 13 minutes late to my bi-weekly blog post writing. {Yes, I actually have an alarm set on my phone.... otherwise it's too easy to get lost in the ether.....}

I am late and feeling guilty.

Touch Me

I have a new design I am thrilled to share with you!

I was looking for one of those arm bands you stick your phone in so I could wear my phone while walking, but all the arm bands I looked at were big, bulky, neoprene {yuck!!} and, say, just how exactly do you wear them in the winter? Inside your coat? Outside? {I walk outdoors}.

Blessed and Busy

We made it, fairly well even, through the first week of school.

Despite the completely unnecessary mandatory orientation sessions every morning {both kids online in different "classrooms" at the same time}, we got all our lessons done AND there were no melt downs! {from me or the kids}


Back to School

Today we start homeschooling again, wish me luck, pray, cross your fingers.

I need all the help I can get!

This will be middle dude's 2nd grade year, and youngest dude's 1st grade year.

{The Eldest Dude is in a charter school he loves, and is in 11th grade. Yes. No, really! And taking one college course Wednesday evenings.}
