Depressed Mom: Desire vs. Ability

I talked a bit on this in my last post. How depression affects my ability to accomplish the tasks in life I want to accomplish. I've talked before about being a dreamer. I'm am a great idea generator. Let me clarify. I am great at generating ideas. I like to be a problem solver. I... Continue Reading →

Depressed Mom: Holding a Household

Welcome back to my "Depressed Mom" series. If you haven't read the intro, I urge you to do so HERE! As I started planning for and writing these posts, I had no idea that the first one would post on World Suicide Prevention Day. This was a complete coincidence.

Life Long Friends

People come into our lives everyday. Some stay for a few moments, some a few years. And some we can't get rid of, even if we tried. I feel we often group friends into time periods of our lives.

Back-to-School Tradition

Last year, my oldest started school. This Momma was feeling a bit overwhelmed by how fast her babies were growing. I decided that this was time to start a new tradition for our family.

New Year, New Routines

Well, it's started. The 2018-2019 school year! This year we have a kindergartner and a preschooler. Josiah was not completely thrilled to be going back, and Charlotte was over-the-moon excited. Eli was very disappointed that he didn't get to ride the bus and kept asking, "Why they leave me?!?," distraught over his siblings going off... Continue Reading →

Hobnob & Hogwash

I have many childhood memories of impromptu block party grill outs and playing night games with the neighborhood kids until long after the street lights came on. I loved summer time with friends. I still do love summer time with friends, but my neighbors live further away and impromptu isn't a very regular thing. Last... Continue Reading →
