The Missing Blogger

I thought I would take this blog to explain why I am spastic with my blog posts.  I have had several people compliment my writing style, and say they enjoy reading my blogs. One person even said I am her favourite blogger. (Awww....so sweet!). Now having this information, you might think this would make me more likely to try and be consistent and encourage me to write more. Unfortunately, my brain works opposite than "normal" when it comes to things like this.  Hearing these compliments actually makes writing blogs more stressful. If I wrote, assuming no one read or enjoyed,...

My Truth About Self Isolation

My Truth About Self Isolation

Please bear with me as I take you down the rabbit hole of my mind... For months now I have been exhausted...mentally, emotionally, physically...my soul has been tired. Several times I have told Ben I just needed a few weeks to slow down/stop life, I need to sleep when I was tired and relax when I am awake, if I felt I needed to.  I love my life, I really do...the business and the homeschooling and the dogs (I bring up dogs because one of ours has been very sick...so added stress)...I would not trade it for anyone else's set...

Oh Where, Is My Hairbrush

It has been one week since I have brushed/combed my hair. You may think I am doing this on purpose....but nope, I live in a house with 4 other females...and brushes/combs always get lost. I am not sure how, I use mine and put it back on the dresser where it belongs, until one of said other females "borrows" it and does not bring it back.  I swear we have at least 10 brushes in this house and way more combs....my hair does not care which I use...it doesn't not really care for my fingers (which is what I have...

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

I want to start off by saying I love my kids...I really do. I love them, I enjoy hanging with them (most of the time) I even love all their strengths and weaknesses....I love watching them grow and change and become more of who they are deep down.  But this blog post is about how much I enjoy when they are not around. lol This week is March Break here in New Brunswick. Usually we try and do something as a family, even just hanging at the house with movies and popcorn and homemade pizza, or sliding or skating. But...
