Focus…

26. December 2013 Family 0
The past three days have been Facebook free.  And man…  No more can I complain that I don’t have downtime.  The problem is, I go to check in on FB for “a few minutes” and I’m lost. It’s a time-warp. So I need focus. Wish me luck. Have a few minutes to kill? Why not ...

Stuff…
  Everywhere I look I see stuff. Kids’ stuff, my stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff.  And in this over-commercialized season there is more stuff trying to get me to buy it. But you know what?  I don’t want more stuff. See, my days are spent taking care of stuff.  Stuff that no one even likes.  Stuff that serves no purpose. ...

I’m back!!!
Nothing like a dead computer to bring the blogging to a screeching halt, right? But, it is fixed! And so much more awesome than before.  So expect to be hearing more from me! Have a few minutes to kill? Why not read these too? Anyone got a cement truck?

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 ...

Slow down…
It has been a whirlwind past few weeks.  I’m wearing many hats right now and it seems everything needed to happen at the same time.  There are to-do lists, deadlines, and piles of unfolded laundry for proof.  Top it off with a nasty head/chest cold and something had to give. Unfortunately it was writing.  By ...

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 ...

A day in the life of a Flexi Clip
Happy Sunday! I was inspired by a fellow Lilla Rose consultant and decided to do a “day in the life” showing just how versatile a Flexi clip is.  So I wore the same clip all day, from Mass then back home. Upper left is a photo of a half-up with the flexi under my chapel ...

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, ...
