Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing

I want to be happy. I want to feel fulfilled. I want to figure out what my passion is and follow it. But, I'm not. And, I haven't (yet). A couple of months ago, I started working. It's not because I wanted to. It's not because I thought I needed time away from my kids. But, I … Continue reading Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing

Do I Love My Kids Enough To Let Them Go?

I always loved watching those shows where people reconnect with their birth families. It's so amazing to see it when families are back together. But, then I adopted kids. I don't know if I could be like those moms on tv. I don't know if I could give my blessing. Well, I don't know if … Continue reading Do I Love My Kids Enough To Let Them Go?

A DIY Kit That Even I Can Handle

So, Lizzie and I got to make lip balm! Candy of geekmamas gave us a "do it yourself" lip balm kit from Kiss Naturals.  It comes in an adorable package and has everything you need to make your very own lip balm. 🙂 I have to admit I had the kit for several days before we finally … Continue reading A DIY Kit That Even I Can Handle

My Son Wasn’t Happy To Change Schools

I don't generally like change. Or change that doesn't involve chocolate or a new pet, anyway. But, the last couple of weeks have been full of change. After a lot of soul searching and discussing (some might say that I nagged), we made the decision to send William to a very small k12 private school. … Continue reading My Son Wasn’t Happy To Change Schools

Adagio Tea Adds The Geek

When Candy from geekmamas gave me some Adagio Tea to try, I was definitely on board. Not just because I like tea but I also like geeky tea like the tea from Adagio fandom signature blends. There are so many fun options that cover countless fandoms and you can even purchase samplers of some of the blends to get an idea … Continue reading Adagio Tea Adds The Geek

My Son Wants Me To Forget His History

It's no secret that we have been struggling with William. It seems like the last few weeks, months, years...it's been one thing after the other. Recently, he robbed me of my first ever mom break when he got himself kicked out of camp. I won't go into the details but I will say that it … Continue reading My Son Wants Me To Forget His History

A Geeky House Makeover

Brian is a man who needs a hobby. When he comes home from work after a day of dealing with customers who are often less than polite, he wants to be mentally stimulated. I guess he needs to know that he is something besides Brian the store manager. Now me, after a day of momming and … Continue reading A Geeky House Makeover

Becoming Kaleb’s Friend

I feel the need to write about Kaleb. He came into my life at a point when I wasn’t ready for a teenager.  (To be fair, I don’t think anyone is ever ready for a teenager. ) I did however think I was ready and I did think I knew what I was getting into. … Continue reading Becoming Kaleb’s Friend

Lizzie Creates Random Recipes And They Are Good

Lizzie loves to cook. She also loves the idea of creating her own recipes. This hasn't always ended well in the past. But, sometimes it does! She also has spent the last several months taking a cooking class at our homeschool co-op. She has learned a lot but I think she also has impressed them with … Continue reading Lizzie Creates Random Recipes And They Are Good

I Feel Like I’m failing My Son

I'm going through it with William. I've wanted to write about it but the unfortunate reality is that he's fifteen and doing so violates his privacy to a certain extent. But, still all these words are inside me, my fingers ache to type them and my brain aches to get them out of my head. … Continue reading I Feel Like I’m failing My Son
