A Quiet, Empty House

Today is a first in our lives: I am sitting home alone (except for LB of course), in a quiet, peaceful house, and all of the boys are at school. This is a memorable occasion. A happy occasion. A sad occasion. One I have been waiting for, but have been sad about too. Continue reading “A Quiet, Empty House”


Thoughts and Emotions All Over The Place

I will apologize now to anyone who reads this. It will probably be a jumbled mess of thoughts and rambling. This is not the type of post to go back over, edit, and fix. I am just strictly going with my thoughts on this one...

The last two weeks have kind of been a blur. I have gotten through them, but I am not so sure how present I really have been. There of course has been school, soccer games, baseball games, practices, and numerous trips to the hospital. Like really, it seems like only yesterday was the first day of school, but now we are already starting week four… Continue reading “Thoughts and Emotions All Over The Place”

Losing a Loved One

Well, if ever there was a time where I needed a safe place to let it all out, that time is now. Of course I have my Hubby to offer his constant support and without him I don’t know what I would do.

Death is not a topic I am really all that comfortable with. I know it is a part of life and that everyone experiences it. But quite honestly, it scares the crap out of me. Continue reading “Losing a Loved One”

Fixing Up Our House!!

I am a big fan of DIY. However, I really am not the craftiest person in the world, but Pinterest sure helps with that!! Hahaha. I have come a long way with my craftiness, because I would rather do something myself than spend the money to buy something already done! Last year we bought our first house and have been here for a year now. The house itself had promise, but definitely needed some love and updating. The list was lengthy, but hubby and I weren’t intimidated. That man can do anything, he truly amazes me! Continue reading “Fixing Up Our House!!”

Back to School!!

The first week of school is behind us!! Well, technically it was only 3 days of school, but still qualifies as the first week. I was thrown off by the fact that school was starting the week before Labor Day, now they will have a 3-day weekend and a 4-day school week, but hey, who am I to complain about school starting earlier than usual? It is always hard getting back into the school routine, but I think we all handled it pretty well.  Continue reading “Back to School!!”

Finding My Happy

A few days ago, I got around to watching a movie that had been on my watch list for a while now: Mom’s Night Out. It’s not a popular movie, I first saw the preview for it a couple of months back when hubby and I rented another random movie from Redbox. I thought it looked good. Then one of my friends posted on Facebook that she had just watched it and really enjoyed the message it had. Continue reading “Finding My Happy”
