Hello out there… anyone still here?  It’s a good thing that blogging isn’t my job because I’m not very good at it lately… This post has changed my life.  I stumbled across it last fall and asked for an Aeropress and a Milk Frother for Christmas and my sweet mother obliged.  Let me just tell you, […]

Welcome 2017!  I was ready for the new year.  The Fall of 2016 was not great for me… I had some growing pains as a parent, but in retrospect, my general bad attitude may have been attributed to my hormones being out of whack, so who knows.  2017 is here and I have new patches.  Whoop!  However, […]

My Sweet Grandma

So many good memories I have of Grandma place her in the kitchen.  I picture her standing at the counter stirring saccharine tablets into her tea with a long spoon and slightly shaking hands.  I picture her sitting around the table with “the cousins” playing Hand and Foot or Skipbo.  I picture her using the special […]

I was looking at sweet little baby pictures earlier and caught myself thinking, “Oh, I miss that!” And then I quickly came back to my senses.  But oh, how sweet are those newborns! We had to have a family conference just to figure out how we were all going to get to all the places […]

Oops.  It’s Tuesday.  I started this last night and fully intended on finishing.  Best laid plans. The first week of school was… for lack of a better term… dramatic.  #1 had relationship drama, #2 had “I-don’t-like-riding-the-bus” drama and #3 had to switch around her complete schedule on the second day of school which caused her to […]

So, as you know, I recently turned 40… and Mama Train turns 40 in just three short weeks.  What better way than to celebrate together?  I had a dear sweet friend who told me I couldn’t plan my own birthday party, and completely took over and did everything for us.  It was a great evening […]

Forty.

  So I turned 40 this week. 40. Wow. It doesn’t bother me.  Turning a new number.  It’s just that 40 seems so, well, grown-up.  I feel like I should have my life in order and have things together, whatever together means.  Instead, I still struggle. I struggle to raise Godly children who I want so […]

So sick today.  Sore throat and yuck.  But I had this post in the queue… so here are some musings: Because I need something else to take up my time, I decided to go in with some friends of mine to start a theatre.  There really is a need for something in our city for […]

In January of 2014 I joined “The Classics Club” and made a list of 50 classic books I wanted to read in the next 5 years.  It seems like this would be easy breezy, because for a long time, the classics were pretty much all I read.  I didn’t really enjoy contemporary literature – or […]
