  Today is a sick day for Hunter. What are your kids like when they are sick? Hunter is alternating between needing a lot of snuggles and being extremely cranky….like you would expect. You know your kids are not feeling well when you suggest a nap and they don’t even fight you on it! If he isn’t better tomorrow, off…

Gratitude


In the past, I was never one to make a gratitude journal. I’m weird and always tried to start one when I was in a funk or very depressed. It’s hard to write what you do have when you are in a mood that makes you reflect on what others don’t have.  You think, “Sure. I have that but it…

Almost Two Months Since We Moved.


It has been almost two months since we moved from the other side of the city. I didn’t think it would feel very different, but it has, and that has shocked all of us. It is different in a lot of good ways. Our street is quieter, for one. Before, we lived on a very major road that everyone seemed…

Why Do We Have To Go To School?


Every morning for my kids is a struggle. Hunter and Isabella are resistant to go to their new school. Isabella worries that her classmates secretly don’t fully accept her, even though she is extremely happy with her teacher and the school itself.

We are now officially moved into our townhouse across the city. Built in 1981 and coming in at around 870 square feet of finished living space, it is…

Monday Feels


Today feels like….   We had such a busy weekend that I’m having trouble getting back into the groove. I hope everyone had a happy Father’s Day weekend, whether it was celebrating with one or in memory of one. Our family had a great time. We went to The Hangar Flight Museum all day Saturday and then Heritage Park on…

The Gut Makeover


I’m almost finished this book: I’m impressed with it so far and ready to try it in June. I am sick of always feeling crampy and bloated after meals. I feel tired, have horrible acne and sore joints. There are a lot of other symptoms, as well, that cross the line from “discomfort” in to “chronic illness”. I have leaky…
