So Much Good Stuff

You guys! There is so much stuff going on! I had been feeling overwhelmed, but now I’m just feeling blessed. I’ve been going through the most recent online IF:Equip study on the Spiritual Disciplines¬†and it’s been so magnificent. It has reminded me to slow down and lean into God instead of hyperventilating over my super…

A Change of Scenery

As you can see, I’ve changed the look of my blog. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m not in love with the new appearance, but the old look was, you know. Old. Time for a change of scenery. Speaking of a change of scenery, I’m headed down to Myrtle Beach on Monday.…

Regressing in Retirement

I have my first week of retirement under my belt. I would consider it a bit of a fail. I didn’t do 15 minutes of writing every day, nor did I do 15 minutes of decluttering or organizing a day. Do you know what I did do for 15 minutes a day? Nothing. Actually that’s…

The Beginning of the Beginning

Someday Never Comes

When I was young and would ask my mom or dad if we could do this or that, oftentimes the answer was, “Someday”. I finally wised up and (in what I’m sure was my whiniest of voices) countered with, “But ‘someday’ never comes!” As an adult I get it. I’ve put off a lot of…

I’m Still Around

Holiest of molies! Today marks the end of August and my last post was at the beginning of July. I promised myself I would never again go a whole calendar month without posting because, well, I don’t know why. But since I promised myself and I don’t like to go back on my promises, unless…

Spoons and Forks Only

I’m struggling a little bit with this phase of my life. For twenty years I’ve been a mom. That’s been my thing. And I’m a pretty good one, too. Not perfect. Not great. But pretty good. I mean, my kids have made it to 17 and 20 with a minimum of mental and/or emotional scarring…

Taylor is Driving (me crazy)

Since Thursday was his birthday I didn’t figure it would be very nice to tell on him. But now that we’ve moved passed the special day I can give you the scoop as it relates to him driving. In March he went to take his driving test. The first thing he had to do was…
