So what if its hard…
Being a mama and a wife and a homemaker is hard.  Like, really, really hard.  From the pregnancy itself to the rearing, it’s hard.  A couple of “you chose to have all those kids” comments on other people’s posts about their struggles has totally deterred me from voicing my own struggles as a mama.  Until ...

Odds and ends and randomness…

Odds and ends and randomness…
This is really hard.  Not only are we trying to re-do our entire budget, but we’re also doing some rearranging of the homestead too.  Prior to this weekend the kiddos all shared a bedroom that was roughly 100 sq feet.  So we made the ultimate parental sacrifice and switched rooms, meaning we need to sell ...

ramblings about faith and judgement

I had someone the other day say they were a “recovering Christian” in a facebook discussion.  I’ve heard that term more times than I can count and typically just brush it off and go about my day.  But this time it stuck with me, and kept popping up.  Why was it haunting me like that? ...

Week In review
Well, the week is drawing to a close.  It’s been eventful! Monday was Olivia’s birthday and the party was great!  So much fun and we got some great photos. Tuesday morning I realized the transfer cable for the camera is gone.  Can’t find it anywhere. Last weekend our dryer stopped drying.  Again.  So I went ...

To my friend on facebook….
I’ve been reading your updates and just wanted to say a few things. First, God is real. He is in and around each of us and wants us to be happy, as any parent wants for their child. Second, satan is real. He wants us to suffer with him. He is that one “friend” we ...

8 steps to finding balance
I have had this head cold for a week now.  And when I was saying goodnight to Jacob I learned that I’ve pretty much lost my voice in the last hour of coughing.  Am I the only one who talks more when I’m hoarse?  I think it sounds funny and at least I can get some ...

Daily anchors
I mentioned in my previous post that having a to-do list anchors me to the tasks I need to accomplish to keep the house running smooth-ish.  Visually I can see what has been done, and where to focus my energy. Daily “routines” are another anchor for me.  I use quotes because our routine is quite loose, ...
