How sick is too sick?

Yesterday morning, J asked me for orange juice for his cold. Boop! Boop! Warning bells sounding in my head. I asked if he felt sick and he said no. I checked his forehead and asked him again and he said he was fine. Despite all of the progress we have made the last few years, …

Back for another round of NABLOPOMO.

Have I lost my mind to go back to trying to write a blog every day for the next month after 5 months off? Probably. But with my little guy back in school full time 5 days a week I hope I might have a bit more time than last year when he was out at …

Happy Halloween is Over!

Did you miss me? I knew October was going to get crazy and something was going to have to go. And the winner (or was it loser?) was this blog. I had a bunch of ideas throughout the month, but there never seemed to be time to sit down and write. Besides my usual keeping up with the …

Give me boring routine any day.

This week has exhausted me. It wasn’t that we did anything overly taxing or that J kept us up more than usual. I finally came to the realization that it is because we have been completely thrown off our routine since Saturday. Instead of going to our normal local church we piled in the car …
