Time

At a crossroads again. I’ve decided this is what life is all about….decision making. It’s constant. I prefer deciding on what is for breakfast, rather than choosing major life decisions, especially when those decisions will effect  the children. I remember a handful of years when life was steady and secure, no major decisions to be…

Silver Linings

I’m still in shock. So often in my life, I have been on fire, ready to take on the world, and then BAM! It’s done. Excitement….gone. Big life change….gone. Discouragement….here.

It’s Just A New Kind Of Cool

If I was ever cool, I don’t remember it. This thought made me laugh as I put my vintage apron over my sweats and Aeropostale hoodie, so I could make chocolate chip cookies. There are silver linings everywhere. So I am getting older and maybe a little nervous about my fleeting “middle” years….BUT, I don’t…
