Speeches and Life

It has been one hell of a ride this month. 18 credit-hours is nothing to sneeze at. Add in the 45hr work weeks, 10hr of commuting each week, and trying to pack and get ready to move and I am ready to pull this hair out completely! Fortunately, my horrendous English class is almost over….

A Disney Valentines

Let me preface this with the knowledge that I am totally not a Valentine’s Day type of girl. I should be. It fits in my life and it is an important day for my husband and my history. However, I am just not. I am not a big holiday person anyway (except Halloween, which is…

Push Harder

  This have been a whirlwind of crazy around here. Plus, wordpress has been being a little bitch and making it difficult for me to log in. But, either way, we press on.   I have been back in the gym a lot lately, 4 times a week most weeks. I haven’t lost any weight,…

Thank You Sir, May I Have Another

It’s funny how life works. You are just trucking along, hunky-dory, feeling like things are coming together…and boom, semi-truck. Okay, well, proverbial semi-truck, because in this family you have to specify with those things. Chris and I were doing much better financially, things were looking up, we were paying stuff down, everything was moving forward…

2018, Still A Bitch

Last year, I set my sights super high. I don’t know why. I guess it was a faulted view of “shoot for the moon and land amongst the stars…” except I know how space works and it isn’t like that. This is the time of year that everyone gets all nostalgic and sappy and “I am…

2017 in Retrospect

I realized that the main reason I don’t post here a lot is because of my layout. I don’t always have a photo to go along with the blog, and the layout looks funny without a photo. So, maybe I will just have to work on changing that. 2017 was sort of a mess and…

Never Too Much

There is so much crazy in my house right now. All four of us are in school. All four of us. It is absolutely insane. The younger one just started 6th grade. The older one is starting her second year of college, working on an Associates in Early Childhood Education, with an end goal of…

Why Hello

I am totally astounded by the fact that I haven’t written since June 1st. I have like 30 blogs sitting in my draft folder that just need photos or to be scheduled.   My apologies. I do have a lot to write about, chronicling the trip to Paris, Venice, Rome, and Naples. I have a…

Big Plans

Things have been a little absolutely, absurdly crazy, hectic, and crappy in my life. But, as always, born in the strife is an amazing idea. I don’t know if it will pan out. I don’t know if it will even sort of work. But, I am determined to make it happen. I am excited, and…

Changing Lives

( featured image stolen from the LA Times ) I feel like everyone has this dream at some point in their lives that they want to make a difference and change lives. I also think that most of us eventually realize that while we can touch and change those around us, on a grand scale, […]…

Rockabilly Villians

This last weekend was a total blast. Saturday was spent cleaning, crocheting, sewing, and watching Netflix. On Saturday night, we took the kids to see A Dog’s Purpose. (Which will make you cry, and is really very good.) But, it was an excuse for me to get out of yoga pants and into something fun….

Too Cold to Ride

In case you’ve never met me, let me tell you an important fact about myself…I am a huge pansy when it comes to the cold. Seriously. If it is less than 75F outside, I am probably wearing at least a light jacket. And if it is less than 65F, I am complaining about how I…
