Mama needs the doctor too….


Well, after a VERY long week, I am home. Turns out, when you have a fever for two weeks and antibiotics aren’t making a difference, you really should go to the doctor. I do so solemnly swear that in the future when I am sicker than seems normal, I will go to the doctor. Here’s the saga…. brace yourself. It’s long.  Read the rest of this entry

More news in our world! We welcomed our second son, Jensen Luke, into the world on his due date! How often does that happen?! While his birth also did not go as planned, it was 100% better experience than we had last time.  Let’s start at the beginning.   Read the rest of this entry

Clean eating, part 2


Part two, written a few days ago.
I finished the clean eating challenge and lost about 6 pounds. I feel so much better! Overall, the recipes were good, and I will keep a lot of them.

HA!   Suffice it to say, both my husband and I have learned so much about life and love and how to live with each other.  It’s hard to be married, but definitely worth it. I’ve been incredibly blessed.

Let’s talk about something controversial, shall we? Read the rest of this entry

Hi, how are you? Fine…..not really.


“Hi, how are you?”

                            “Fine, how are you?”


Are we really?

Wedding Bells and Insurance


Seems I have forgotten about my blog….

I have now finished my course work for the Alternative Teaching Certification and passed the content exam. I’ll take the pedagogy exam on January 28, then look for an internship starting in August.  The reason for waiting until August is because a number of things have happened since my last blog!
