Welcome to My Corner of the World

I hope you find humor, inspiration and something worthwhile on this blog. I plan to be as candid as possible. Life is hard. I know, I've overcome a lot (and still have a way to go).
It doesn't help others if the rough things are glossed over.

I will no doubt fill this blog with stories of my achievements as a mom as well as my personal struggles.

I have an incredible husband whom I call "my sanity." I have two great kids with strong personalities. I struggle with anxiety and depression and I have had a colorful childhood.

I also have an addiction to Gilmore Girls, A&W Cream Soda, and Starbucks peppermint mocha.
I have recently added biking to my list of hobbies and also love to read, knit, and play tennis.

Welcome to my little corner of the world!

Hello Monday!!

  Ok, so technically today is Tuesday.  I must admit, I forgot about posting yesterday.  Oops!
  But I'm only one day off, so I thought I'd go ahead and post for the weekly segment =)

  This week I am saying Hello!! to:

  • Getting the ball rolling on taking care of A's cross bite, even though it's not going to be an easy process for her (or us...).
  • Making some potentially hard personal discoveries that will help take care of these anxiety-induced chest pains.
  • My birthday.
  • Doing some more spring cleaning and organizing.
  • Crocheting.  I have a fun project I've been working on for the kiddos in my life and am looking forward to Finishing it!
  What are You saying Hello!! to this week?

Hello Monday!

  Good morning!
  I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are, but it snowed and sleeted here.  Again.  It's done that enough this winter that even A is ready to see the snow go!
  But in keeping with the optimism of this segment,  I shall focus on the positives of this week (even the snow has it perks).

  Here is what I am looking forward to this week:

  • Playing in the snow with the kids
  • Crocheting a few small projects
  • Tapping into my creativity to make some changes our master bedroom
  • Taking care of some more de-cluttering
  • Getting into a good home-schooling groove 

  What are You saying hello to today?
