Adult Coloring Books

I admit it… I’m a sucker for anything that brings with it a feeling of nostalgia. Naturally, after seeing a coloring book marketed towards adults, I knew I’d eventually get one. I’d actually been wanting one since around January. I’d read that it’s super healthy for combating stress hormones in the brain. It helps you relax, lets your brain de-stress,… Read more →

Anxiety Attack

Has anyone ever had an anxiety attack? I think I may have had one last night. (I’ve never had one before, so I’m not sure what it feels like.) I was laying in bed, both my kids were asleep, and I was scrolling through my Netflix. I came across a movie called Mona Lisa Smile that had Julia Roberts and… Read more →

Soul Mates

When it comes to soul mates, there are so many theories that no one really agrees on. In fact, there are some that say soul mates aren’t even a real thing. For instance, some may say that love takes work. With all the people in the world, you’re compatible with more than one. Statistically speaking, they have to be right.… Read more →

Running Behind

I started out waking up at like 7am this morning. That’s about normal, if not a bit early for me.

I’ll be able to get a jump on… Read more →


So… maybe this is totally an old person hobby, but I really love puzzles.

Normally, with scenes, you can kind of sort the colors of… Read more →

It’s that time again…

Just as every day, I find myself struggling to keep working around this time in the afternoon. Why? It’s so frustrating, and I literally feel angry with myself. Why can’t I push myself to finish out the day? I’m not making  a massive amount of headway in my to-do list. I’ve done a bit of cleaning, and I’ve answered some… Read more →

That 3 o’clock Slump

Every day, it seems, I hit a wall around 3 o’clock. I’ve made progress on things that need to be done, and I am feeling positive. I usually have lunch around two, so it gives me a break. But, in trying to go back to work from that break, I struggle. Today, I’ve gotten so much done: emails, graded papers,… Read more →

Crossing Things Off My List

Each day, I write out a list of things I hope to get done. Usually, I aim to have it done by the time my husband gets home from work. That doesn’t always happen, and sometimes I work more after dinner together. Some days, I don’t even get close to finished everything. But, today is different. I’ve already managed to… Read more →
