That’s It. I’m Throwing it On the Lawn and Setting It On Fire!


I really feel like I could do that. I do. But I won’t. We still have quite a lot of stuff. In Marie Kondo’s book, she stresses that you should not declutter your family’s things, just yours. Kondo says that even a three-year-old child will get the decluttering bug if you’re setting a good example and they see how happy…

Hunter Turned 6 Years Old!


Hunter turned 6 years old on Friday, January 20th. My children turning one year older is not something I take for granted, as I used to. Hunter’s birthday was full of joy tinged with sadness.

Well, we made it to the end of the week! It has been freezing cold here and my kids have been going a little stir crazy.

My Son’s Friend Died and Nothing is the Same.


It has been a hard week. We found out that my son’s six-year-old classmate died. Yes, you read that right. We were shocked too. Shocked is not the right word, it sounds too innocent and not bulging with the feeling of what we are actually experiencing. There are no words. She was the most robust and beautiful soul. A more…

Izzy Heals A Head Wound Which Motivates me to Workout Again


I kicked it back in gear this week and started getting up for my morning workout routine, after I stopped. It felt like starting over again! It is the first week I have given it my all since we went on vacation in March. It was tiring and hard to get up but in the end I was happy that…

Being Sick and Parenting


Last week I had to pretend I had super powers. Being very sick and feeling like a zombie, I lurched myself through the week in a daze. Twice I nearly fell asleep in my lunch, and Hunter had to ask me what I was doing, and if I was looking at my lunch “real close”. LOL. But I survived it…

A Wondrous Weekend: Atwood and Penner


Good morning! I hope your last week was as busy but as fantastic as mine was. Now I just need a week entirely alone to curl up and process it all. (Seriously).   The beginning of the week was the long weekend, but our week really kicked off for us on Wednesday, when we got to see Fred Penner live.…
