Onward and Upward!

I got laid off Thursday. As my regular readers know, it wasn’t completely unexpected but it still stings. I wasn’t alone in the layoffs although I wish I was. Some of my dearest friends are leaving with me. One brought cupcakes Thursday because she knew it was coming, so we cried and laughed and ateContinue reading “Onward and Upward!”

Why I Share My Story

My two year blogging anniversary is rapidly approaching. It’s hard to believe that it’s been this long. I talked about writing a blog forever but it took a long time to muster up the courage to do it. We’ve come a long way since that first post. You can read it here. My second postContinue reading “Why I Share My Story”

MOMMA’S BACK!

After what feels like an eternity of not writing I’m finally back! Whew! Did you miss me?! I missed all of you! It’s after midnight on a Thursday and I’m exhausted and surrounded by art supplies while my Husband and the dogs snore. I’ve been working hard on my submission for The Sketchbook Project. BackContinue reading “MOMMA’S BACK!”

Sometimes…

Sometimes… Sometimes even in the midst of chaos, When the world is bleak and scary and too much, When I question everything and doubt myself , Sometimes… Sometimes there are moments, Brief moments that make my heart slow down it’s pace, That still the noise in my head, That fill me with peace, Sometimes… SometimesContinue reading “Sometimes…”

Morning Whispers

They’re in our bed again. What I hate in the night I love in the morning. I wrap myself in it like a big snuggly blanket, Soak up their sleeping faces and cute tiny toes. I tickle her feet and snuggle up next to her. She pushes her feet back against me and whispers softly…..Continue reading “Morning Whispers”

Love Everyone.

Today’s post is going to be a little different. I don’t normally post here about my faith or morality. I started out writing to create a safe place for people to come and read and laugh about the weird life I lead. It’s become so much more than that. I’ve kept relatively quiet about myContinue reading “Love Everyone.”

Good News!

It’s been too long since I’ve written. Life seems to be going 1000 miles an hour lately and there never seems to be enough time in the day. It’s not bad busy. It’s actually pretty exciting. I’ve been trying new recipes, making kits and lots of soap, and trying to make my house look lessContinue reading “Good News!”

Self Quarantine Day 76: The Final Quarantine Log

Our quarantine has come to a close. While social distancing is still the norm and we’re not going all over the place, work is ramping back up and the Twins go back to daycare today. I’m more upset about it than I thought I’d be. There are so many unknowns still but I know thatContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 76: The Final Quarantine Log”

Self Quarantine Day 59: My Pawpaw

I woke up yesterday with a heaviness in my heart. It didn’t take long to realize that it was the four year anniversary of the last time I saw my Pawpaw. It is a memory that’s like a Polaroid. Crystal clear in spots but fuzzy round the edges. He was tired and weak but happy.Continue reading “Self Quarantine Day 59: My Pawpaw”
