Pursuing your Passions

What is your passion? Find your passion! Pursue your passion! I’ve been doing some thinking on my “passion” lately. It is a hot topic and gets a lot of air time these days, you know. If we could just find that elusive passion and pursue the heck out of it… we would surely be living…

Updated… Uptown Girl

What could be better than a two month “vacation” over Thanksgiving and Christmas, right? See Part 1 and Part 2 here. While the long vacation was nice, it unfortunately couldn’t last forever, wah! You know the saying, “It’s not WHAT you know. It’s WHO you know?” That once again proved true for me when someone…

Updated… Going Nuclear

When I walked away from teaching I had no other job lined up and ready.  (See part 1 here.)

Thankfully, the job did…

Updated

It has been a while. I know. I’ve been through a lot of life stages with this blog o’ mine in the past 8+ years. I don’t know if I can pinpoint one specific thing that has pushed blogging to the back burner. It seems that it was a collection of things… primarily the STRESS…

My Eyes

I have been in glasses since I was seven. I barely remember what life was like before my glasses dependence. Neither of my parents had to wear glasses, so it was a shock when I needed glasses so early and so badly. I remember riding home from getting that first pair being AMAZED that I…

Best Free Apps

I love my iPhone. It is a wonder how I functioned prior to its arrival in my life. I am a techy person and I love being connected to anything and everything I want to be… all in my little bitty phone. It’s awesome to have it through the school day too. I can grab…

How To Blog

I am NOT an expert on blogging.  BY ANY MEANS. Don’t worry. I DO know that.  But I HAVE been blogging several years.  In blogging years, more than 2 or 3 years really is an eternity, and in that time I have managed to glean a bloggy trick or two! {via} Ha!  Don’t you just love that??  It makes me…

Movin’ on up.

It’s true. Small spaces can make your family close. We have lived in our <1000 square feet house with our growing family for SIX years. When we found out that our third little crazy one was on the way, I was SURE, as in ABSOLUTELY positive, that we HAD to find something bigger. But then…
