How Do You Stop Stressing?!?!

I am, by nature, a worrier, highly anxious, and continuously analyzing my surroundings. I always try to stay one step ahead of any situation. I want to be in control, because if I'm not, I fear that things will not be done right. I take on too much. Now, it seems, that this stress and … Continue reading How Do You Stop Stressing?!?!

What Was It All For?

I dropped my two youngest children off at school this morning, and cried all the way home. My heart aches because I feel like I have failed them. They are back into being thrown into the group, made to conform to what everyone else is doing. I failed at giving them their chance to grow … Continue reading What Was It All For?

Blackbirds And Broken Hearts

This song is one of my favorites. I love the simplicity of it, and the words are so meaningful if you really hear them. Today, after some pretty hurtful words were said to me, this song came into my head. I immediately began to sing this, as I sat alone in my room, and began … Continue reading Blackbirds And Broken Hearts

Martin Luther King Jr. And My Children

Today, as you know, was Martin Luther King Jr. day. I decided we should definitely incorporate the significance of this day into our lesson plans. After arriving back home from a dentist appointment, we had some breakfast and dove right in. We were first to watch the "I Have A Dream Speech."

It was a billion questions long, and, with the answers from these questions, the computer was going to tell us what professions would be right for us. The test was so painful to take! Each question was more grueling than … Continue reading You Be The Judge

Figuring Out About Me

The assignment for today was to make our About Me page captivating. I am not very good at talking about myself, never have been. I am never quite sure what to say. Too little information makes me seem boring, too much makes me seem like I'm bragging. I tend to steer towards the safe side … Continue reading Figuring Out About Me

Where’s My Fairy Godmother?

Parenting is tough sometimes. I love my kids, more than life itself, but man, I doubt myself so much when it comes to what is best for them. If self doubt was an Olympic sport, I would bring the USA gold in this event every four years. I wish that there was some kind of … Continue reading Where’s My Fairy Godmother?

We Will Meet Again Someday

Tonight I am somber and emotional. Tonight is the wake for my lovely childhood friend, Hilary, who passed away Christmas night, in Oklahoma. I see all of the wonderful tributes to her on her Facebook, and see how many lives she has truly touched over the years. I feel blessed, and honored, to have had her … Continue reading We Will Meet Again Someday
