September felt like THE longest month that also completely sped by at lightening speed. I don’t know how that is mathematically possible, but it probably has everything to do with all those common core shenanigans.
My hosting fees are due over here. I mean…like, I’m already on borrowed time and I’m conflicted about what to do.
When I’m trying to figure stuff out, I generally write about it. So here we go.
I like having my own space on the interwebs. Cap City Moms has my heart, but this place is just for, well…me. I’m completely lame over here. Precious few people make the trek over here because I don’t actually post over here much anymore. You would think that would make things easy. I don’t use it…I shouldn’t waste my money.
And yet…I haven’t been able to trash it all and walk away.
This was the first place where I was me. I was a closet blogger until I made the jump over here and owned my voice. A little. Mostly. I put myself out there more. Learned how to come out of my shell in the smallest of increments. I still have a looooooong way to go. Which is probably why I can’t seem to say goodbye to Life of Jill.
I don’t think I’m ready to give this up.
Is that silly? Frivilous? Maybe.
And now I’ve talked myself out of it again. Is it worth the money? Is it just one more thing on the to-do list and another something to make me feel guilty? I’m…just not sure. Ugh.
I think I’m more confused and conflicted than I was before I started this post.
So…apparently I’m still deciding. I’ll let you know.
It’s easy to celebrate this guy. It’s no secret, we were young and dumb when we got married. I have no idea how the two of us made it to the couple we are today. Of course hard work and … Continue reading
My kitchen table is covered in crown making materials for their senior rally tomorrow. I’m not entirely positive that I’m NOT high from all the spray paint smells. I honestly can’t be sure at this point. Mostly because I’m already … Continue reading
I actually starting writing about our trip on the drive home. I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t finish, but it is what it is. I know a lot of it has to do with feeling like I’m a broken … Continue reading
We have two graduating seniors in our family so we had a “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” party last night. Naturally.
I mean, it was really just a contest to see who could keep it together the longest but with presents for the grads, so…
This is all new territory in some ways. It’s pretty exciting and crazy and weird. It’s also hard.
But we’re getting there.
There’s a tradition for graduating seniors at the end of the season: jars are filled with the dirt or grass (or both) from the spot on the field where they played. So this is the dirt from the spot … Continue reading
April was INSANE. Awesome, but completely nuts. I have no idea how we crammed so much into one month. Birthdays, baby showers, more birthdays, Easter (remember Easter?) Sports-a-Rama, college trips…Einstein. Dude. And that’s not even the half of it.
Also, how is it almost May?! (Gulp)
I’ve been going to bed pretty late the last few days. Nothing about this surprises you, I’m sure. But it’s been especially late the last couple of nights as we’ve been helping the kids with some school things. Last night, … Continue reading
I’m a firm believer that being happy is a choice. Is it easy? Of course not. But happy things don’t just plop in your lap. You have to find the happy things. You have to work toward being happy. You … Continue reading
