If you make it, will they eat?
Sometimes I'm not sure if there is a light at the end of the tunnel....but silly (and determined) me, I keep moving forward and searching it out.

Good Day to anyone taking the time to read...I'm feeling pleased today.

March Blog - the beginning, hear me roar!
Every story has a beginning, middle and end. At this point, I know I'm in the middle of my story for life, but I want it to be the beginning of a new me. I've encouraged others to write their goals for March down in blog fashion so they could ... Read more
Taking some time
As the big football weekend approaches, I decided to invite the family and a few friends over to catch the game. Being the only ones with small kids, it makes sense to just be home and toss the kiddos into bed at the half. By making the decisi... Read more
January Wrap-up and February Goals

Overcoming life challenges with life changes
Looking back, I have struggled with certain obstacles both mentally and physically. I was falling into the trap of "yeah so I messed up, who cares." I didn't give me enough credit to say, I care. I finally recognized the challenges I face are... Read more
I had a great weekend and I'm so ready for this week....bring it on.

Just another manic Monday....
Although I can say for certain, I do NOT wish it was Sunday....yesterday was exhausting. I'm almost ashamed to say the day was spent around the house....doing housework of course....to the point when it was time for bed, I had to jump in the sh... Read more
Monday Morning Blues
Ok, so I got up this morning thinking..."today is the start of the rest of my life..." and then I heard it raining and by the time I was half-way into my morning routine, I was 10 minutes behind. Then the kids got up early and needed my attenti... Read more
Guess who's back....
