DAILY DOSE OF MAMA

It won't be daily and I'm not your Mama. Get over it.

Forty and FABULOUS…?

Last night was one of those nights. You know the kind. The kind where you wake up around 2 or 3am, and ALLLLL the things that could possibly be wrong in your life are rolling around your head. You second guess every conversation you had the previous day. You worry about all the mistakes you may be making in your life, your kids’ lives, your marriage–you name it. You lie there feeling like everything is just […]

DRIVING ME CRAZY

I have read several times over the years that the most common thing for couples to fight about is money. I have not found that to be the case in our years of marital bliss. Whether we have had a little extra money to spare or none at all, money is not what my husband and I fight about. You know what we fight about? Food. Each other’s driving. His disgusting caveman-like habits. My “inability” […]

FOURTEEN POUNDS…AND COUNTING

Today I went to doctor for my annual check-up. Last year I was feeling pretty good at my physical. I had been great about cutting carbs and sugar out of my diet. I was experimenting with intermittent fasting. I had dropped down to my lowest weight I had experienced since before I had kids. I walked around the supermarket feeling pret-ty darn awesome and superior. “Look at all these people hooked on sugar with their […]

17 Seconds to Anywhere

I feel overwhelmed in this moment.  I am sitting across from my newly married 23 year-old son at what we have appropriately named “the game table.” My 13 year-old son sits next to him—they are discussing a computer game they are playing together. Another son, 16 years old, is just a room away, also playing the game. They are all connected by earphones, headphones and the like. To a person from my generation, they look […]

THE LIES THAT INCITE AND DIVIDE

Are we really all done talking about what just happened in Canada? We are just going to move on? We all just lived it, but let’s take a little walk down memory lane that happened less than one month ago. Seems like a distant memory… In February as the Canadian convoy gained momentum and attention as it drew closer to Ottawa, Justin Trudeau chose to call the movement representative of a “small, fringe minority.” Video […]

Alex Berenson’s Huge Mistake

Was the Vaccine Mandate Actually Defeated? Are We Really Free?

  Yesterday, I was in the woods bringing in firewood with two of my sons when my husband emerged from the back door and shouted,  “The Supreme Court knocked down the OSHA mandate!!” “What??” I shouted, half processing what he said, half not sure I heard him right.  “The Supreme Court knocked down the OSHA mandate!!” “NO WAY!!!” I shouted back. Could it be true?? It was hard to take in. The world has not […]

This is not the blog I wanted to write

I don’t want to start off with so much preamble and whining–but I do need to explain a few things. First of all, I was not planning to write this kind of blog–and I certainly was not planning to put it out there just yet. This should be fairly obvious from the fact that if you are reading this on a cell phone, you can see that I can’t even figure out how to get the word […]
