The cost of having children…

I remember in school when they teach you about being an adult and having children they would always reference the “annual cost to have a child”. It’s usually around $275,842,012.03, give or take a few hundred depending on how needy your child is, roughly of course. I’ve come to realize it’s all a big scare…

Forgiveness and letting go…

So before I even begin, let me start by getting the obvious out of the way. I am a huge hypocrite. I can hold grudges until the end of days.I will remember the time you screwed up. I will throw it back in your face years and years down the road. But it’s time to…

Today I am struggling

It’s safe to say my schedule is officially catching up to me. This morning I finally woke up after hitting my snooze button one too many times (did you know that after an hour your alarm clock basically says ‘well I give up’ and stops going off?) and felt like I needed to grab the…

Music, an escape within myself.

In my last post I talked about my love for words. Today I’m going to talk about my love of music. “Aren’t they sort of the same topic?” Key words, sort of. In my introduction post I told you how I have an unusual taste in music. No I’m not into screaming music, hardcore rock,…

Parenting, and how somedays you just feel like a failure…

First things first, I love being a parent. It creates some of the strongest emotions I have ever had to deal with. Everyone wants to talk about the great times, the highs, when the world is going great. I’m not going to talk about those times. I’m going to talk about the moment I felt…

The “Unofficial-Official” start of Autumn

Yeah yeah, I know fall doesn’t “technically” start until September 22nd, but in my opinion, in the little world inside my head, today is the day. Summer is gently pushed aside to make way for the best months of the year. A sense of calm and peace rushed over me as I stepped outside this…
