I assure you I am most definitely adult-worthy if we're referring to trips around the sun. Lately, though, I realize that I've lost some skills in the ten-plus year span of birthing and raising children. A lot has happened in ten years. Currently, I'm attempting to make sense of some seemingly basic stuff that I … Continue reading Will I Ever Be a Grown-up?
Moments That Matter
Sometimes I find myself full of advice. I have these sparks of wisdom, though it's rare that I share them for fear of looking like a know-it-all. I SO don't know it all. Occasionally, though, words fly out of my mouth before I'm able to hit the pause button and self-edit...and it's a good thing. … Continue reading Moments That Matter
Serious Ponderings…Though it Might be the Worst Idea Ever
Perhaps I should start posting on Friday and call it the Friday Rant. Who am I kidding...it would have to be the Weekly Rant because I can't seem to commit to a particular day... _______________________________________________________________ I'm still in a bit of a state. Shortly after my last post, I felt worlds better. (Thank you to … Continue reading Serious Ponderings…Though it Might be the Worst Idea Ever

But I was having trouble focusing on anything … Continue reading Know Thyself: The PTA Volunteer Dilemma
Nothing’s Going Well Tuesday
Moving might just do me in, y'all. I'm as crabby as they come. Apparently, Gil, in his get-it-done mindset, told our children to pack their stuff... then beebopped off to his office. Can I punch him, please? Guess what? They inherited their packing skills from their father. They open a box and … Continue reading Nothing’s Going Well Tuesday
Still Plugging Away . . .
I've wanted to post an update, but I've been doing my best to stay focused on my work the past two days. I'll try to sum up the highpoints. The Good: -- I've gotten up every day this week at 5:30 and exercised. This is huge for me -- not so much the exercising but … Continue reading Still Plugging Away . . .
Of Course You Can Always Be a Superhero
I began this morning excited about hunkering down once the kids were off to school and working on the numerous writing projects that I have in my head. My excitement quickly faded once I realized that a two-year-old's attention span is better developed than mine. So what did I decide to do? You're looking at … Continue reading Of Course You Can Always Be a Superhero
