The Year So Far… in Pictures

Another week... another blog prompt. I am admittedly getting a bit cheaty on these and picking and choosing the topics I want to do. 😛 I decided to take the idea of a photo post with very little wording. I will be doing a photo dump of recent photos I have taken with...

My Goals for March

I love the beginning of a month. It's a great day for new beginnings. It's time to look at my goals for the month. Fitness & Health I spent the better part of February getting back on track with my healthy lifestyle. It got me down another 10 pounds over the month......

What Would You Put in a Time Capsule?

If you were to bury a time capsule, what would you put in it? I remember when I went to a school in my hometown, they had done a bunch of remodeling in one of the years I was there. During the remodeling, they uncovered a time capsule left by the students over 50...

Intussusception

Nope... that's not a typo of interception. Intussusception is a genuine medical term. We had to hear the doctor say it about a dozen times before we knew what he was saying. Let me backtrack for a minute. On Thursday night, Xander started complaining of bad pain in...

Priorities, Places, & Actions

I got a bit sidetracked trying to complete the scarf I'm working on for Xander, so I fell behind a bit on the journal prompts. This is where I catch up. 😉 Top Three Priorities I would say this brings me right back to my three goals that I discussed earlier this...

A Trip You Want to Take This Year

Today the journal prompter has asked me to talk about... A Trip You Want to Take This Year Keeping it real, I will avoid the more obvious destinations like Hawaii and Disney and go with a place we could actually get to this year. I have lived my entire life (so far...

A Time You Don’t Want to Forget

I'm getting prompted through January. It's a great time to learn a bit more about me and to share your own thoughts. I hope you are enjoying the ride. 🙂 A Time You Don't Want to Forget This is a great topic. I like the positivity of focusing on something I want to...

Something to Look Forward To

We have come to our fourth day of journal prompts for the year. I always amaze myself when I stick to these challenges beyond two days. 😛 I have been quite busy revamping and reorganizing the site, so it's nice to take a break just to write. Something That You're...

Ten Words

Another day, another journal prompt. Today will be short, but challenging. Describe your day in ten words. Wake up. Chaos. Work. Clean. Feed people. More chaos. Sleep. How would you describe your day in ten...

Three Goals

As I mentioned in yesterday's blog post, I am working my way through another month of blogging prompts. It's a fun way to get myself writing on topics I may not normally discuss. I'd also love to read your own responses to the question... be sure to comment below with...

Looking Forward

I have decided to try to get through another month of blog prompts. Are you scared yet? 😛 I don't know why I torture myself... and you guys... with these weird challenges. I guess I find them fun in an odd way. Do you enjoy them? What are you most looking forward...

A Fun Family Day

Our Saturday was one of my favorite days in some time. It was so nice to spend a day just being a family. Karate Our day started off with a mock tournament at Xander's karate school. The school had heard many comments from parents like ourselves. Many of us were...

Summer Days

I really need to get better about watching the weather forecasts. I had no idea it was going to be such an amazing couple of days outside! Luckily, we had a chance to take advantage of them. The weather has been sunny without the typical mugginess of this time of...

Dancing in the Rain

I remember playing in the rain all the time when I was a kid. I loved when we would get that perfect combination of hot weather, pouring rain, and no thunder. I could spend an hour just running around in circles or splashing in the puddles as they formed. There was a...

Oldies & Car Games

I saw today's Wordpress blog prompt, lollipop, and immediately began singing in my head. Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly, lolly...  That song makes me think of my dad and summer nights driving around town with the oldies channel blasting on the speakers. We used to play...

I’ve Been a Grumpy Gal

I have been so grumpy for the past several days and with no reason to be. It seemed like everything was irritating me. My son got up relatively quickly the last couple days instead of the usual last-minute, but I was still annoyed that I had to try a couple times...

Is That What You’re Wearing?

"Is that what you're wearing?" is what my six-year-old son asked me as we were getting ready to head out for his summer program today. Really?! Okay, so I admit that I was wearing an outfit that looked a lot like what I typically sleep in, but still. My husband has...
