I have to admit, I've been pretty run down the past week. From the moment I first subbed in March, to getting the interview and demos at the new gym that I was just hired at - add Crossfit on top of that mix and WHOA.I''ll be honest, I'm just tired with a dash of … Continue reading Run Down.
Last week we went exploring Osgood Pond.It's a small park area in my town where the kids can go for a walk, play soccer in the field and such.You can also fish in the pond, but we are not at that level - yet.;-)Lately, the weather has been gorgeous.We've been spending as much time outside … Continue reading Osgood Pond.
I didn't think there would be a part three to this post, but here we are. A couple of days before the final divorce hearing, my ex came back to me asking for another chance. If I'm being honest, it would have probably been our firth or sixth "try again" at this point? His answer … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. III
When I was about to have my first, the thought of being a stay at home mom was awful. But the thought of being a full-time working mom was awful too. I knew both "full-time" roles weren't for me - I wanted to do both part-time. With my first, I went back to work at … Continue reading Life As A Stay At Home Mom.
I've been thinking a lot about boundaries. Even since my cousin passed away in mid December (and then my grandmother in January), I let go of most boundaries with my children's father. I was pretty much a hot mess. I needed all the help I could get and I am very grateful that he was … Continue reading Boundaries.
The new documentary film Less is Now, is finally out on Netflix. If you would have told me that I'd be outside for a hike in January, I would have laughed in your face. No really, I would have.I was one to take the kids to the library, indoor park and so forth. But you'd … Continue reading Less Is NOW.
I debated on writing this post, but my mind has been racing. During the last three weeks of December, so much happened; my brother go into a car accident, I had a family member pass away, my grandmother ended up back in the hospital and my ex and I finally re-filed for divorce on December … Continue reading To New Beginnings.
I'm not going to lie, I've been dragging the past week. Ever since Thanksgiving, my mindset has plummeted. I had this same feeling last year when I had my first "separated" Thanksgiving and Christmas from my children's father.While it makes me happy to see others happy, it the pit of my stomach I feel angry. … Continue reading Celebrating Holidays Separately.
One night a few weeks ago when I was putting my oldest to bed and I started rubbing her back. It just hit me that her back was "massive." She no longer was the little 22 month old when she first asked me to rub her back. At that time, my hand could cover most … Continue reading Mom Guilt.
I put "day off" in quotations because let's be real, a mom's brain never just shuts off. On these days, you'll find me spending a good chunk of the time cleaning the kids room, doing laundry and just trying to do things that just take too long with the kiddos around. Each "day off" varies, … Continue reading Day In The Life: Mom “Day Off.”
