Thursday Updates 9/21/17

Let me explain this picture to you... This is my afternoon coffee, completely frozen, sitting inside a slightly larger cup that has hot water in it. I need to thaw the frozen coffee so that it is just refrigerated coffee and I can drink it. Earlier today, I put my leftover brew from this morning... Continue Reading →


Wednesday Updates 9/13/17

Yesterday marked the 6-year anniversary of my daughter's due date. That was a long, long day. I sat around our little house in South Bend extremely fat, tired, and depressed because "It's not gonna happen." And it didn't. She was 4 days late, and those 4 days were an eternity. Anywhoo. Currently: Editing: I've been working... Continue Reading →

Memes for a random Tuesday

It's Tuesday, y'all, and sometimes Tuesday is worse than Monday b/c you're already wiped out from Monday but still have basically the whole week to go. So, here are some memes: Seriously, I should start compiling a list of all the things I say during the day that I really shouldn't have to say.    ... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorites

The above image is of the rose bushes outside the dining room window. We had a morning of rain last week, and suddenly the bushes were in bloom once again.

Currently... Feeling: Weird. Over the past couple of days, I've caught myself feeling faint and/or extremely hungry. This is odd since I haven't changed my diet or anything like that. I actually went through the McDonald's Drive-Thru this morning and got a breakfast sandwich because I could tell I was going to start feeling dizzy... Continue Reading →

Let me start off by saying that I don't write this to step on anyone's toes. I write this post because there's an issue within homeschooling that is prevalent, inevitable, and potentially harmful. Whatever reason you name for the reason why you homeschool, there's no denying that homeschooling your children gives you more control over... Continue Reading →

Thursday Updates 8/24/17

I didn't feel like writing yesterday, so I didn't. Currently... Reading: I just finished The Prodigal God by Tim Keller and now I'm reading The Art of Neighboring by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon. Both are books that my pastor is encoring everyone to read as we plant a PCA church here in town, and I'm really hoping... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Updates 8/16/17

Currently, I am.. Trying: To get back into blogging more regularly now that summer travel is over 🙂 Thankful For: A good summer. It didn't flash past, nor did it drag. We traveled as a couple and as a family, but we didn't spend the entire summer gone, which is good. We had hot summer... Continue Reading →
