All About Me

Happy 2012! I’m still in shock over how quickly the last year has flown by.  What did you accomplish in 2011?  More importantly, what are you GOING to accomplish in 2012?  I for one, have big plans, like always! 🙂   As you know, I had some deeply personal issues/struggles that needed to be dealt with over the last couple of months.  I took a hiatus from this blog, as well as from much of my life.  Ironically, around the […]

Forgive me for getting a little “religious” on you today, but oh me oh my, I had an epiphany last night.   It wasn’t actually last night.  It was this morning.  Between the lovely hours of 1:00 and 4:00 am.     But then, I’ve never been very good with timing.   Okay, so it all started last night.  I put the kids to bed, helped them say their prayers, and then hopped into the sack myself.  I said my […]
