just breathe….

i have to remind myself to breathe. i’m getting that worked up feeling where i’m feeling out of control with stress. after 3 years of having our house in chaos because of the big rm being out of commission and crap piled up in various areas of our house and shed and inaccessible for the most part…we are finally seeing […]

very frustrated

i need to get these fliers out about “move it, dig it, do it”, and usually i ask the moms on the local moms groups to help me, and they usually come through like gang busters. but i’ve not had a single mom pick any up yet, or even say they would. 🙁 and normally i would say, ok, no […]

the drama of our lives

we have only 1 credit card…which i’m quite proud of (we paid off the others when we remortgaged our home and took cash out to pay off a bunch of stuff). and we rarely use it. recently we’ve had to use it, unfortunately, but we are paying it off as soon as adam gets some more money in from jobs […]

hard to focus

this is a stressful week. babyfest is day after tomorrow and i have a ton of things to do still…and stressed over that already…then what did i go and do? i scheduled my son’s appt to have his teeth worked on today. what was i thinking? of course it didn’t go well…its a bad week all around. he wouldn’t even […]

simplifying life

i have no idea how to do this. really, i don’t. i can’t, or i won’t or something, i don’t know…i just seem to be incapable of it. *sigh* and right now i’m really desiring to figure it out. i always have tons of projects i’m working on but right now i actually am unhappy with how much i’m involved […]

learning patience

i’ve been working on practicing patience lately. its been just a tiny step so far, but i’m pretty proud of myself and felt i wanted to write about it. i’m not a patient person…never really have been…although i used to be a LOT more patient in regards to other people’s children. teaching, i had an immense amount of patience in […]


ok, things could be worse. i KNOW that people have it worse out there…but i have found that i tend to feel better about bad situations once i vent about them…so here goes… *sigh*DEEP BREATH ok so i mentioned before how adam got a 10% pay cut, right? well, now here’s the thing…its kinda confusing, so bear with me here… […]

i suck at housework

i have so much that needs to be done (always), and so of course i’m procrastinating and blogging instead. i really need a maid. 🙂 my kids are singing “happy birthday to you” right now because i just said that it was my friend beckie‘s birthday. and now they are arguing over how to sing it cuz tyr decided to […]
