My Favorite Quote

This week has kind of gotten away from me somehow. I'm not even sure how it happened. I haven't had more than usual on the calendar, more errands to run, more responsibilities. Although, I did have some changes in the rules on Twitter and a few computer issues that kept me tied up for hours… Continue reading My Favorite Quote

My Proudest Moment

It's week 12 of my personal blog challenge, and this week's prompt is My Most Proud Moment. Goodness! How do you pick just one? Do I pick the moment I became a mom for the first time, or for the second? Do I pick the moment I turned from an ordinary mom into an Ooma… Continue reading My Proudest Moment

Piercings and Tattoos

As promised, I'm back with this week's exciting installment from my 31-week blog challenge. This week's topic is Piercings and Tattoos. I've been trying all week to think of something clever to say in this post, but I've got next to nothin'. I have no tattoos.

Hmmm... ¬†This is either going to be easy or extremely difficult. I can't decide in advance. Number 1 is, of course, my mom's… Continue reading 10 of My Favorite Foods


Yearnings & Gratitude

I miss going to the grandkids' birthday parties and showing up at the door with cake and ice cream for their… Continue reading Yearnings & Gratitude


Organizing 101. Or Maybe Just 01.

I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed lately. I can't tell you how many times in the course of a single day I stare at the wall or my computer screen and wonder how I'm going to even keep track of everything I need to get done. Photo from Unsplash I don't want to sound like I'm… Continue reading Organizing 101. Or Maybe Just 01.

Reviving the Blog

I haven't posted much lately. Or at all. I haven't had a lot to say. My health routine fell by the wayside, and I've been battling an almost crippling fatigue. Turns out, the two things are related. In a strange twist of events, the kind that only God can bring about, I got a trip… Continue reading Reviving the Blog
