    Adjusting to the New Normal

    Adjusting to anything new takes time. Some times it a few days sometimes it takes a few months. Between the move and the pandemic, there are many changes going on in our lives. We are not alone with a new way of life, nor our way life is alien to anyone. This is our new normal. It is a change that no one was truly prepared for – even though you have watched days worth of post-apocalyptic movies or read forest of novels. As the world around us might be falling apart, I am happy to announce that we are slowly settling into our new home. All my books are…

    In like a lion, out like a lamb…

    That’s how March is often described as; it’s how I grew up remembering it. I lived on the East coast and I would hear it a lot. Every March first, the teacher would change the hearts and set up the lions and lambs. Either way, March is almost always known to be a transitional month. Let’s just say that it is true for me this month! Last month was pretty busy for me. A lot of things had been going on. Doctor appointments, babysitting a little more, so many school events and birthdays. Somewhere I once I read that February was the least popular month for birthdays. I don’t think…

    Drawing up Blanks

    I’m drawing up blanks… It’s very rare that I can’t think of anything to blog about. I often can blink and come up with a new idea…. Not today, I’m drawing up blanks… Maybe it’s because I woke an hour earlier and I have been trying to get as much done before my daughter wakes up!

Today I am just drawing up blanks… My blog has been going so well this month and I am scared that it might not last… But I have felt like this before and it hasn’t brother much… Today I am drawing…
