Hypnophobia

Powerlifting Meet circa 2014 I might be afraid of sleep. Or afraid of losing control of my time I’m awake, or maybe I’m just a whacko and let my mind spin in circles. I didn’t sleep much last night and I committed to being at the gym by 6. So, of course my restless legs […]

Journey Towards Joy: Body

And by tomorrow…I meant in a week. Ooops! So this brings me to how I wanted to start by saying…my work schedule has been very unpredictable. This is ok, but hard to plan things in advance. Sure does keep me on my toes and make me creative about scheduling laundry and working out and such. […]

Journey towards Joy: Spirit

It’s so interesting being in my 40′s. As I get older sometimes I think I was pretending at really living and now, I truly want to DIG in and LIVE. I’m cherishing friendships and excited to meet new people. I’m caring for my body, not just working out but really thinking about where I want […]

Monday Mom: Self Worth

Fearing Pirates, Trusting God

I’m a mom of 3 teenagers…17 year old son. 16 year old daughter and 13 year old son. I’ve posted a lot about them through the years- about 9 years blogging I think. A lot has happened over that time. We have moved about 3 times, the oldest had several surgeries and almost died once […]

Family Night: Art Project

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about family night. Honestly we got a little lax in our creativity. Also, stuff’s expensive so we had to set a budget for the night limiting us a bit. This week, I got the idea to do a craft when Emma asked to go to Michaels. Jackpot! So […]
