One of the things I appreciate about life is the ability to grow and change. When I started this blog I chose a name based on where I was at that time. ‘Survival of a Domestic Goddess’. I’m not quite sure how much of the goddess part was true, but the survival part was spot… Continue reading What’s in a name?
Yesterday was a rough day. The kids were taking turns being difficult (being cooped up in the house isn’t helping). I was trying to do the mom thing and make sure Cam had a great birthday. Then at dinner he flips out because we didn’t get him ALL the presents he asked for. Rob was… Continue reading Unexpected Joy & Snow Days
Money. We need it to survive. Some people have extra. Some people just scrape by. I’ve seen both sides of this personally. Times where I had $15 in my checking account. Times where I’ve been able to treat others knowing I would be okay. Here’s the thing though, I’ve always given. I’ve always felt that… Continue reading Going Dutch and the Best of Intentions
Grace. As a Christian this word is used often. I can't tell you how many times I've read of God's grace. This was my word for the year a couple of years back. I wanted to focus on giving and reviving grace. I did fairly well on the giving of grace. Giving of grace to… Continue reading Grace
Thank you @LETMESTART for letting me know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Well, that’s what it feels like anyways. As 2020 starts getting going, here comes the Coronavirus. Covid -19. Or as I call it, the Rona. (Sounds a little less scary that way) It’s a time where fears and anxieties are at an all time high. We are told to stay in and socially distance. We… Continue reading Self Distancing Day 54……
When I was younger my best friends family had this amazing tradition. They would get together for family/game night. Being a child of divorce this seemed like the most amazing thing I’d ever seen. Any extended family was invited. Including friends like myself. Everybody just had so much fun. They’d come together and laugh, eat,… Continue reading Sunday Night Dinners
I am a person who often comes up with random ideas (my husband said a hermit crab for my boys was not one of the better ones). Usually not much happens with them. Sometimes because I’m more more of an idea person vs a put it into action person. Sometimes it’s just because I think… Continue reading Project Sunshine Mail
Mr Blue Eyes is turning two. Where did the past two years go? I can’t imagine a time when he wasn’t here. The baby boy I longed for. If Muffin Man was the child who broke me, Mr Blue Eyes was the one who built me back up again. He was pure joy. I felt… Continue reading The Story of Mr Blue Eyes
Can less ever truly be more? We hear the expression ‘less is more’, but we don’t really see it in action. Think about it, how many ads, shows, magazines, even friends, are telling us that more is better? You NEED to have the newest 'fill in the blank here’. From beauty, to clothes, to household… Continue reading Less Is More: My January Task to Simplify Our Lives
