It Feels Good To Come Home

My husband left with the children this morning to go to Ohio to visit his family.  I was very sad to kiss them goodbye, letting him take them 8 hours away, but they were excited.  I am happy they get to see their family, most of them haven't even seen the baby since he was first born.

I felt anxious and had a hard time waiting for them to arrive safe and sound but...

Exhaustion and Four Kids Don’t Go Together!

Energy has evaded me in a big way the last couple of days.  The baby finally decided to start sleeping through the night a couple weeks ago and I figured once he did I could find my energy.  I was wrong.

My 6 year old said to me yesterday when I laid down for my noontime nap, "mommy, why do you always have to lay down?"  It made me extremely sad but...

I’m Just Wandering Around, Looking For Answers

Lately I have not really had much focus, and my goals seem foggy.  I am sort of distant from many things around me, and feel kind of aloof.  I'm not sure why and it's pretty irritating, but overall I'm not doing badly.

My relationship with my husband has been excellent.  In fact it has been beyond excellent, and I have been enjoying my time with him tremendously.  We aren't missing anything at all between...

Opinions: Everyone Has One

I recently had someone I love speak her opinion very strongly to me.  It was almost like she was trying to influence a decision I had made - I had to remind myself that everyone has an opinion, and that's part of what makes us human.  Sometimes, even though we don't ask for them, people still share their opinions.  The thing is, an opinion is simply just an opinion.

A long time ago when I had my first son, I...
