Whole30: Day 05 – Calm in the Midst of Chaos

Whole30: Day 05 – Calm

One of the problems plaguing me over the last year is poor sleep. I have craved sleep, and while I fall asleep easily, I toss and turn all.night.long. The evidence is my bed. I wake up exhausted, often with a headache, with sheets twisted around one leg and blankets spilling onto the floor. Poor Jeff.

More often than not, I stare at the ceiling for a split second before my mind begins reeling with everything I need to accomplish; it is frequently overwhelming and even debilitating as the burden of the day’s load smothers me before I even rise.

Here and Now

Posted in: Everything Else, Kids and Parenting

Here and Now

The kids are now 17, 13, and 11. In fact, Meredith will be 14 in exactly one month; suffice it to say they aren’t “little” kids anymore.

This all happened bit by bit, under my radar. One day I was spending an entire afternoon tracking down babysitters so Jeff and I could get away for …

Here’s what luck looks like.

Here's what luck looks like.

Like many of us in the South, on New Year’s Day I chowed-down on black-eyed peas and cornbread. This was in large part due to my momma because in all honesty, if she had not invited us over, it is a tradition I might very well have forgotten.

After the meal, she packed-up much of …

The end of a long, hard day

The end of a long, hard day.

Today was long–really long. Nothing went horribly wrong, and the kids pretty much completed what was asked of them, but still the day lagged. It reminded me a bit of my childhood dreams where I would fall, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not get …

Hands-on Multiples of Nine

Ditch the flash cards and pull out your phalanges people because we are fixin’ to get our COUNT ON UP IN HERE.

(Holy crap my Grammarly account is going to self-combust when I run this post through.)

Today’s blog includes the whole family – or rather, the whole family’s hands. Emelie’s hands weren’t featured because …
