Mondays should hold peace, not dread. They should be an optimistic look forward at all that’s in store for the week, rather than a reluctant look downward at my shoes as I muster the wherewithal to just get through the coming days. I want my days full of joy and hope, moments of solitude andContinue reading “Peace, Not Dread”

Can’t Blame Myself
I’m the poster child for thinking of ways to blame myself when something “goes wrong” with my kids…if they acted irresponsibly, after they said something disrespectful, or best yet, when they got a mental health diagnosis. After the discovery of clinical OCD, general anxiety disorder, a math disorder, and ADHD in my daughter, I didContinue reading “Can’t Blame Myself”
Tell me I’m not the only one who gets up and makes up the bed, then stands there and does a quick calculation of the time that must pass until you get to get back in it again. And yeah, I’m one of those “million pillows on the bed” chicks.
Sorry I’m Late…
“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”
Counting The Minutes
I’m tired. Really tired. Are y’all? I never want to wish my life away at all, and I try not to want time to hurry up, but I’m ready for this break. There will be no girlbossing starting Friday.

It’s more than just coffee!
When I come into the kitchen in the morning, my coffee is already made. Keith fixes up the pot while he makes his espresso in his machine. Although sort of a tiny thing, it feels peaceful. I feel loved. The day to come may be filled with absolute madness, but in that moment, all isContinue reading “It’s more than just coffee!”

I’m just not a morning person. When I have to wake up early, I feel scrunchy, and I just want to cuss. I don’t wake up all sing-songy and pleasant. Nope. Wish I did. Instead, I want to be quiet, move slowly…and bite people. And here I am taking this child to the horse barnContinue reading “Ugggg. Mornings.”
It’s a beautiful day, and I’m thankful for a whole lot of stuff. What about y’all? I’ve got coffee…and a few groceries. I think we’re having chili for supper, because I’ve got the stuff to make that. My hubs is the freaking cutest. He’s smart and kind, too, and a good kisser. He’s hard workingContinue reading “Thankful today.”
