Life and Breath and Writing

Sometimes I hesitate to post. I guess because when I read all of these online blogs and I see how fancy they are, and what great writing is out there, I start to doubt my own writing ability. But....I know I have to keep remembering that I am writing for myself only. To chronicle my life, my thoughts, my feelings. One doesn't have to be an exceptional writer or understand all the ins and outs of blogging in order to do that. One just has to have a heart to write. And I know I have that. Writing...

Exercise-or Lack Thereof

I did not do well on the exercising goal yesterday. Actually, I did no exercise at all. Quite the opposite actually. We ordered Thai Food for my daughter's 13th birthday (which was actually this past Monday) and we ate way too much. My 16 year old (who is a bake-a-holic) made lemon bars, blueberry muffins and a lemon pound cake all in one afternoon! Come on! What am I going to do? I HAD to taste it all, of course, to give her my opinion ya know But, I confess I didn't need to eat three pieces of... Sign in to see full entry.

A Beautiful Day...

It is a beautiful day. Still, warm, sunny. Every leaf on every tree so clear....But I sit here feeling like crying. Why? I have no big trials, the crisis with the economy has not affected us very much, all of my children are healthy.....Just WHAT is wrong with me? I guess I could try cleaning the shower again (see my post from last night). It just might put me in an energetic mood again. And boy would our shower be clean, clean, clean! Then again....maybe what I need is exercise. I am about 99%... Sign in to see full entry.

Stopping Sluggishness

I have a tendency to fall into a paralyzing sluggishness when I have no commitments that are on a time frame; comittments like work, or meetings, or appointments. And when I feel myself beginning to fall into that, it is so easy to just lay back and let it snowball. It sounds take a nap here and there, to read a book, to just hang around. But I can't seem to keep it that way. My mood begins to go downhill. Today, I fought it. I did something really simple to counteract it. I got up... Sign in to see full entry.

Ugh-40 Hours

I am a bit bummed that I have some intense work hours coming up. I know people work 40 hours a week all the time, but I would so much rather be home with my "babies". Working a day here and there is fine, but I have been bordering on full time all summer. Thankfully, my kids are homeschooled and so if we want to take a vacation in September, after I am done with all these hours, we can do so. My husband is a huge help. He has been arranging his hours to be here when I am gone, so that the kids... Sign in to see full entry.

The Little Things

Sometimes, the little things in life make all the difference. I have been searching for someone to cut my girls' hair...someone they are happy with. My girls are shy...they don't like to carry on long, intense discussions with the hair stylist. So to find someone who is proficient at cutting hair, but who also has a personality that puts my daughters at ease, has been quite a challenge. Today, on a whim, we stopped in at the new Supercuts that just went up around the corner. And we found an... Sign in to see full entry.

Wow-I had a productive day! Our church had a car wash, I caught a 2 hour nap after that, and then I attacked the basement. I threw out so much stuff! Set some bookshelves out by the street (they were snatched up within minutes), went through some of the kids old clothes and toys to donate to charity and now I am even on blogit! I wish every day could be like this! Sign in to see full entry.

A Perfect Day

It is a wonderful down day, of which I have had very few of lately. The sun is out, the temperature perfect....80 degress maybe. My 16 yr old daughter playing the piano while my 8 year old is giving the new puppy a bath. My son is in the backyard playing with a friend, my 13 yr old at an art class and my oldest is babysitting...meeting another babysitting friend at the park here in a few minutes. I want to sort through some paperwork, clean out a drawer or two, start organizing the basement. My... Sign in to see full entry.

Computers and Puppy Tales

Well, I was finally in the mood to start blogging again and then our computer died on us. A computer we have had for a year and a half has been in for problems 3 times! So, the good news....they gave us a brand new computer! The bad news...I have been off blogit for a whole 2 weeks when I was in the mood to blog. Anyway, I know there are worse problems. The biggest new news.....our brand new puppy! Here is a picture of my oldest daughter, Rachel, and our brand new baby boy, Russell. He was named... Sign in to see full entry.
