(Microsoft Publisher 2007) I have been going through a rough few years and this last week, I took a leap of faith and did something to hopefully put my life on a better course. Unfortunately, that leap of faith didn’t “fix” everything. I have struggled to KNOW who I am, KNOW what I believe, and… Read More Having a Hard Day!
Thank you everyone for your helpful feedback! I went today from carpooling 4 kids down to 2. Though it took a lot of bravery, to potentially disappoint people, I made the best choice for me and my family. I worked things out and I think everyone is happy with the outcome. I will be carpooling… Read More Carpool problem solved!
The last few days have been more than difficult. They have been EXHAUSTING! I don’t know if it is jet lag, or Paul’s flu bug from Costa Rica, or something I might have caught on the plane. But all I know is that if I don’t keep myself balanced, I am going to lose it!… Read More The Art of BALANCE . . .
I did it! Yes, I did it! I made it through the 1st day of school! I honestly didn’t think I was going to make it, and still functioning (somewhat) too! I have tried to prepare my oldest for his 1st day of Junior High. Doesn’t E look just THRILLED to go? I’ll be honest,… Read More 1st Day of School
I LOVE Sunday! I always have. It is my favorite day of the week. Even as a child I loved Sunday.

Paul and I… Read More I LOVE Sunday!

I just couldn’t sleep any longer. I don’t know if it was L coming to bed with us, first time in Costa Rica, in the middle of the night or the fact I needed to use the restroom at 4 a.m., first time for me as well. But I just couldn’t sleep. I lay… Read More Coming Home!
I am so grateful to be home! I am still in a bit of a fog, jet lag and sleep deprivation I think. But boy does this feel GREAT! The kids were SO CUTE last night, when we FINALLY arrived home. They walked around the house, at 1:00 a.m., looking at everything they had taken… Read More Feels GOOD to be home!
I can’t believe I am doing this, AGAIN! I have to say goodbye to Costa Rica and I just can’t bare to do it. Just LOOK at this place! (While I was driving on the freeway, E was my daredevil and took this picture out the window for me. I took the risk of losing… Read More Temptations!
