I am excited for what will be happening starting in December here on the blog. For some time I have just felt like I have lost myself and the focus on this blog. Hopefully I am going to be getting that back and my MOJO for writing is gonna return. I can’t wait to share with you all that will be happening.
Today I sit here at my computer and I just realize how hectic life has gotten for me. It is something that I never thought I would allow to happen, but it has. When life gets like this, all I can dream of doing is taking a step back.
Because of the hecticness of this lifestyle I am living, I crave for just drawing back and doing nothing — no social media, no computers, no television. Just me, my family, and the things I love to do like reading, crocheting, and cooking.
You may have noticed that I did not post anything over the last couple of days. The reason is that I was gone with my husband to check out Myrtle Beach Christian Retreat for our youth group. I had to take a moment from blogging this weekend to try coming up for air for once.
Last night and all day yesterday, my daughter and I celebrated her best friend’s birthday. My kitchen pretty much stayed messy all day. For me, that is pretty rare. I am one of those raving lunatic mothers who cannot stand for anything to be out of place. But something happened to me when I went to Type-A. I learned a valuable lesson about messy lives, and it kind of stuck with me. I’m trying to learn to be an imperfect mom and just enjoy my life.
This week is definitely going to be one of a blur. Type A is coming up on Thursday, so I have to haul butt to get some posts scheduled, recipes made, and get them all photographed and blogged before I leave. It is going to be one crazy week!
Just in case your week has been crazy too and you have missed any of the posts on my site, I decided to start doing a Sunday roundup — to have them all in one central place.
Today I woke up with this feeling of dread in my neck. You know those days when it seems like you have the entire world on your shoulders? Yep — that is exactly what I felt when I opened my eyes this morning.

Today’s Prompt: In Between
Today, I am in between breaths. I am finding it hard to breathe again. Every single time I think I know what I want to do with my life, things suck me back and I feel stuck again.
Yesterday was an utter fail for me. I mean UTTER FAIL. As a stay at home mom, I pride myself on that. The whole entire reason I wanted to be a work at home mom is so that I could be available to my kids when they want to go do something fun — like swimming. Imagine my surprise yesterday when my daughter blurted out at me — “I just wish you would FOR ONCE mom go do something fun with me instead of working. All you ever tell me is you have a million things you need to get done.”
Hey y’all! Happy Saturday This week has been a doozy with so many things on my mind. I’m linking up today with Kris from Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers for Weekly Wrap Up. This is a great way for me to look back at my week and see exactly how things went.
