Because Apparently Life Isn’t Complicated Enough

Hey mamas! I pray you all are still safe and thriving during this time. I am grateful to God that my family has still remained unaffected by the Coronavirus. Despite talk of reopening amongst government officials, I have kept vigilant with keeping the children inside and cleaning vigorously. However, we have still been affected by…

Untitled Book

Let me just say: I have always been against adults writing memoirs/biographies when they’re younger than 50. I know by that age we have TONS of life experience but in my mind, we still have so much more to live, it just doesn’t make sense to me to write a book about our lives when…

Up In Smoke Pt. 2

No man can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true- Hawthorne I saw this quote while watching The Sopranos believe it or not.

You May Quote…#10

I know that I should be enjoying my summer with Bubba and I really am but unfortunately summer won’t last always and when Bubba returns to school in September, I will be rotting at home. I lost my job as a cashier in March and its time to get back to the daily grind. I…
