The Best Regift Ever…

The Best Regift Ever…

Online shopping works pretty well for me. This time of year, I have boxes being dropped at our front door a few times a week. I usually snatch them up and move them to my closet so no one else in the family has time to discern where the box is from and what is inside. Today […]

Can “good” ever be good enough?

2 Clogged Toilets and a Rotted Mailbox

This past Sunday afternoon our entire family was past the point of exhaustion. The previous week Chris had been out of town.

Last week my daughter announced that her […]

Mental Gymnastics…

Mental Gymnastics…

Do you ever play mental games with yourself?  As women, we are especially good at this when it comes to our appearance. Maybe you only allow yourself to have that special dessert when you do a certain workout or hit a certain number on the scale. Having an eating disorder in my past, I steer […]
