I’ve been struggling a lot lately. I was doing really well with posting daily, and getting my butt around to film and such for Youtube and then we got some pretty bad news and I’ve been spiraling ever since. I’ve been doing the bare minimum with cleaning the house because my boys spiked a fever two nights ago and John began throwing up the next day and today they seem to be better but there’s a nasty bug going around […]

30 Day Challenge Us What You Have!

I’m in this amazing planner group on Facebook called “Plan without Fear” and a friend of mine suggested a challenge to “use your shit”. If you’re a planner/craft/stationary/scrapbooking addict like I am you know the challenge of buying and never using or buying then getting so overwhelmed that it just sits there. So many others like myself, bounce between systems and they need a good stash for different brands, sizes styles etc. Others just want to destash and go to […]

Playtime with the boys.

We don’t have a park anymore that the kids can go play on since it was taken out by the flood. So we have a small side yard for the kids to play in and they love to run around and just have a ball just running around. The other day I managed to remember to take photos of them laughing and running around. It was actually fun.   I love the pure joy on their faces when we get these […]

Planner Peace University.

I have been in the planner community since 2014. It started out with family-based counseling suggesting a way to track my step son’s behavioral issues, and I became addicted. I’ve always loved stationery and pens. I grew up journalling and when I discovered that there was something called Junk Journalling and Bullet Journalling two things that I’ve been doing my entire life I kinda went for it. The problem is I am super picky about my set up and I […]

Because I couldn’t stop for death, he kindly stopped for me.

Here’s the thing. I died. Three times. I clinically died. My heart stopped and I was revived.  I beat death. I had the gastric bypass to lose the weight that was dangerous on my lungs, heart and everything else and while a complication nearly killed me, I didn’t let it beat me. I am still grieving for the person that I used to be. The person who wasn’t in pain all the time, who could clean the entire house in […]

Editing, storms and pain flares.

Today I lost it. Today I felt overwhelmed. Today I felt like a failure.  Today I lost it and cried to my husband about a photo I was editing and it wasn’t going right, the software crashed and I felt like a fraud. Today I felt alone. And I wanted to be. I need a break. I’ll never get one because I’m Mommy, but today I acknowledged through tear stained cheeks and hiccupped sobs that I need to rearrange the […]

Photoshoot, Apraxia, and fighting for my kids.

So my Aunt N isn’t doing well at all and upon the news that she’s on hospice I suggested that I do a family photoshoot so everyone has pictures before the time comes when we have to say goodbye. I haven’t known this woman long but she’s been kind to me and their family as pretty much welcomed me a lot better then my husbands own mother did at first. It made me realize how important family is. And how […]

I am writing again.

I’ve hit a bit of a dry spell or as some would call writers block. And I’ve had these ‘ideas’ loosely based on brilliance but have had zero drive to actually open up Word and just begin to write.  I thought about writing some Fanfiction again just to try to get things moving again and its been a really long since I’ve wrote anything Fanfiction oriented, even though I do want to finish the stories I have published on my […]
