    Happy Halloween!
    I don't think my kids will be out there too long tonight.
    It's wickedly cold outside and snow showers are expected. Gah!

    Snow on Halloween?! What the fuck?!

    So Much Love...

    I absolutely love this picture of my sister and her husband!
    There is so much love in that photo.

    Actually, exercise is better than therapy. 
    It feeds my soul.

    The Dash...

    Making the most of my dash, today and every day...

    Adjust Your Focus...

    It's the Law of Attraction. 

    Friday, October 24, 2014


    This is absolutely true.
    You have a choice; be positive or stay negative.
    I prefer the former.

    Leaving My Mark...

    From my veins to you...

    Wednesday, October 22, 2014


    It's an inside job.

    Tuesday, October 21, 2014


    In a strange way, this makes sense to me.

    A Special Talent...

    Hear That?...

    That's me howling.
    Some days I'm the wolf; other days I feel like the prey.
    Today, I am a wolf.

    Excuses Are Your Enemies...

    These excuses are the grown-up versions of "the dog ate my homework."
    Be stronger than your excuses.

    My Mind is Never Quiet...

    So many things... 

    Thursday, October 16, 2014

    Fuck Yeah!...

    I am not a circus animal or a house pet; therefore, I cannot be tamed.

    Sounds About Right...

    Spot on. Sigh...

    Sleeping Problem...

    One way to make sure you're never late for work is to have children
     who wake up before the sun rises.  If only they could shut that part of their
    brains off on weekends and holidays. Heh.

    These Boots...

    I took Liv to get the final piece of her Halloween costume.
    She LOVES these boots, especially the dangling peace sign on them! Yay!

    Sunday, October 12, 2014


    Sounds about right.

    Forever Haunted...

    It took me many years to talk, many years to learn to be quiet,
    and now I'm haunted by things I never said but should have.
    Go figure.

    Not Entirely Accurate...

    I would say I'm a little but of everything.
    This birth order chart does not describe me to a tee at all.
    I am definitely not financially irresponsible, nor do I really care about being pampered.
    What about you?

    Feeling Witchy...

    It's time to decorate this house for Halloween!
    I'm feeling quite witchy lately.

    I Don't Ever Go to Movies...

    I prefer to read.

    Sunday, October 05, 2014


    Never, ever sell out.
    Always stay true to what you believe in your heart.
    Go with your gut, not necessarily with the flow.

    Five So Soon...


    I can't believe my twins are five years old today.  It feels like they were born not that long ago.  Seriously.  Didn't I just bring them home from the hospital?  Didn't they just learn how to walk? Weren't they JUST potty trained?  Could time have gone by THAT quickly? 
    They will always be my babies.  We will always call them the "babies."
    What they have added to our family cannot be described with mere words.
    They are loved so much by everyone who knows them.
    My littlest girls.  My babies. 
    I made those hands, those feet, those smiles inside my own body.
    I love them with my whole heart and I always will.
    Happy 5th Birthday, Liesl and Leia!
    We love you so much!

    Someone tell this to my kids! Heh.

    Thinking Ahead...

    I guess it's time to start planning cool things to do with the kids for the holiday season.

    Hello, October!...

    I will always love October more than November.
    October has my favorite holiday.
    I really hate November.
    I wish we could just skip over November every year.
