    Not Gonna Do It...

    I never shop on Black Friday because I used to work retail. It's a horror show!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    This was me yesterday. No joke.

    It's Not Difficult...

    I am so glad my son keeps his room spotless. My three girls are a different story.

    Yep. Pretty accurate.

    If you can't smile, then at least be the reason someone else does.

    Job Title...

    Queen of Snark sounds like a great job title for me.

    Children of the Bookworm...

    That would be me.
    My kids will treasure my books as much as I did.

    Weight of the World...

    Use it to get stronger. Easier said than done.

    Sunday, November 15, 2015


    This is beautiful.

    Saturday, November 14, 2015


    It's a fair question to ask.

    Friday, November 13, 2015


    It's part of the job.

    Thursday, November 12, 2015


    This is so true it's pathetic.

    Bedtime Stories...

    Jack loves reading bedtime stories to his little sisters.
    Times like these make me so grateful they have each other.

    What a cool way to teach kids about the skeletal system!
    Perfect for visual learners!

    Trust the universe, I guess.

    Friday, November 06, 2015


    It's important for you to take time for yourself.
    If you don't, you'll be no good to anyone else. 

    Thursday, November 05, 2015


    Yes. This.

    Wednesday, November 04, 2015

    Three years ago today, my Dad left this world.
    This was the last picture of mine that he "liked" on Facebook
    before he fell asleep that night.
    We never spoke again because he died in his sleep.
    I miss him terribly and wish he could see how big all of my babies
    have gotten and how smart they are.  He'd be proud of them...and me.

    Sigh. I miss my Dad.

    My Fitbit Charge fell apart. It still works, but I had to use electrical tape to put the band back on it. I contacted Fitbit yesterday and they're sending me a new one free of charge. It'll be here tomorrow. The customer service I received was exceptional!
