I have been so tired – blogging, Reading blogs and commenting, homeschooling, trying to play with the kids, trying to get time in for sewing, breastfeeding, making doctors appointments and homeschool coop meetings, make it to the gym to work out…and on and on and on.  I just haven’t been getting any sleep.  I would Read the full article…

The Still Small Voice

Have you ever listened to your inner voice, and, as a result taken a leap of faith?  Maybe you delved into something so outside of your comfort zone that nobody really understood.  Maybe it was something you have been thinking about for some time.

Showing Appreciation

The Site of Armageddon after clean up!  I was awakened by my 8 year old at 2 AM this morning.  He said he had thrown up and was running around (like a chicken with his head cut off) complaining that his mouth was burning.      Anyway, I calmed him down and laid him on the Read the full article…
