New Year’s Resolution ~ 2011

New Year’s Resolution ~ 2011

This past January I posted about New Year’s Resolutions.  I had pretty much forgotten about the post until I started searching my blog for all the things I had posted about Gone With the Wind.  In January of this year I made it my one mission for the year to read Gone With the Wind. (…)

365 Project

365 Project

As I was sitting around the other night trying to catch up on some of my blog reading, I stumbled upon something that caught my attention. Over at Weird Unsocialized Homeshcoolers, Kris posted about starting a new project for the year called 365 Project.  She was talking about how she had received a new fancy(…)

Over the past year we have taken to scanning all of my old photos and turning them into digital format.  I have photo album after photo album from my adolescent years!  Now that they are in our photo files they come up in the screen savers on all of our computers. A I recently came(…)

Thanksgiving Thankfuls

Thanksgiving Thankfuls

  Today I am thankful for my treadmill.  Seeing as I am in this endless struggle to lose and keep weight off, the treadmill can be quite a useful tool.  I have not used it all that much because I have lost the weight by greatly altering my diet instead of adding in exercise.  But(…)

Thanksgiving Thankfuls

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” -Buddha Today I am tired. (…)

“Just” A Stay-at-Home Mom?

Someone was recently thrown aback by a father who (not knowing her) made a statement in conversation about how he did not want his daughter to be “Just a stay-at-home Mom”.  So I ask you, why, we as a society do this to our “stay-at-home” Moms?  Why do we say “JUST” a stay-at-home Mom?  Why(…)

What About Socialization?

What About Socialization?

Socialization (according to Wikipedia)- “the developmental processes by which children acquire the behaviors, perceptions, values, and attitudes of an ethnic group.” Does it say anywhere in that definition that public school is a requirement of acquiring socialization? Or that being homeschooled means you cannot be properly socialized? I didn’t think so, but apparently many do,(…)

Negligence or Maybe Just Procrastination

My motivation to blog has waned recently and my feeling of guilt over it is rising!  During certain moments of the day I ponder the reasons why.  Here are a few that I have come up with: the weather is still nice, summer is still here, so I am making the most of it activities(…)

I ♥ Faces ~ Teens Only (I’m Going Old School!)

Over at I ♥ Faces this week it is Teens Only.  That means only teens ages 13-19 can enter the photo challenge this week.  I decided that even though I cannot enter the contest, I will still throw some photos up here on my blog.  BUT, I am going old school.  In honor of Teens(…)

Deeply Personal ~ Moments/People That Matter

Deeply Personal ~ Moments/People That Matter

I am reading a book called 13 Reasons Why (which I will post a review for in the next week or two).  It is about the big/little, known/unknown things that we do/say and how they affect people, or even start a chain of events and thus impact people.  The last Deeply Personal post I put(…)

Deeply Personal ~ Be You

Deeply Personal ~ Be You

As I sat in front of my computer watching a movie the other night, I was a bird sitting in a tree outside someone’s window.  What I mean by that is that I was witnessing (but not fully) a difficult struggle in another person’s life.  It made me sad.  None of the details are known(…)
