The Way We Remember

After I posted 50 Facts, a friend mentioned to me that she didn't know if she could write one herself. And it got me thinking in tangents about things I thought about writing here a while back when I had little time to blog but plenty of inner-chatter to chat out, if you know what I mean.



I explained to her that truthfully, that list of 50 took me a few years to complete. A little idea jumping out here and there on occasion, and…

The childhood memories that fade

My son is telling me a story. It is a story about a day he spent just with me because Daddy was on a motorcycle trip. He tells me about the fun that we had during the day, including doing yoga together, making some blueberry oatmeal bars, cleaning the house, playing some board games together and then reading a new book together.



There was nothing special about the day - it was just a normal Saturday, but here's the thing: It's accurate. All the events he describes to me were…

Uploading history to the family cloud (Or, that didn't happen to you, honey)

My husband and I have been together for 17 years. And during that time, we've shared a wonderful son, a collection of amazing travel photos and a series of shared memories. We share those memories even when we don't mean to.…

I'm afraid to leave this room

So, I am afraid to leave this room before I finish writing up this blog post. I am afraid that leaving the room will make me forget what I am writing about. But more on that in a moment.…

** Cramps and mammograms are just two of the many perks (*ahem*)  of being a woman.

Things I've Learned This Week

** Judging from Beyonce, Manti T'eo, and Lance Armstrong, fake things apparently happen in threes.

** Women supposedly look their ugliest at 3:30 PM on Wednesdays.

** The people who…

The True Meaning of Christmas

As a kid, it's hard to see the big, wide world outside your own tiny bubble of existence.  (Heck, it's not easy even as an adult sometimes!)  That's why I've made it my mission to try to teach my kids to help out people in need.  And one of my favorite holiday traditions for our family is to help fulfill the Christmas wish list of a child in need.

For the past…

Snake in the Grass

I took Henry to our family farm this weekend so Dada could have some

"quiet-time" and so Papa could have some time with his grandson. Two birds with

one stone. Excellent.



The truth is, I love to see Henry, decked out in

his ripped & torn "barn jeans" and John Deere-green hat that says "Future

Farmer," trudging down the lane between the farmhouses or stalking across the

hayfields.

He's just so determined to "help" on the farm and I love how he…

Hey You, Whoever You Are....





As I've said before, I'm convinced that motherhood kills your brain cells.  It's certainly done a number on my memory cause I can't seem to get anybody's name straight in my household.  I don't know how the hell that Duggar family does it when I can't even keep track of the four of us!

Back when I was a teacher, I was…

In Memory of My Mother I am Going to Plant a Tree

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…

the problem with memory loss

at least for me, is not only can't i remember what i'm supposed to do, i forget what i've already done! so i have difficulty remembering whether i told the kids to clean up the kitchen (although it NEVER hurts to remind them) and i cant remember which blogs i've visited or commented on today. so...if i forget to comment or if i comment twice (or thrice) bear with me. and i cant usually remember to cook dinner until my stomach reminds me that i'm hungry.

help, help, help!!!!

Good evening, or early morning everyone! When you get a chance, will you please stop by my blog and let me know your opinion on my items? Especially my memory boards. My husband and I are working on pricing lists for the boards and I wanted to know if anyone makes these or buys them, what do you think a fair price would be? I have an idea in mind, just need some feedback.



Also, does anyone have web-hosting for their blog or just use free sites like Blogger? I am going to register my… Continue

My First True Love: A Letter to my Teenage Son

Dedicated to my oldest son, Brandon



We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.



I knew… Continue
