We got a new table and chair set after a couple of chairs had broken from our kitchen set. It was from Pat's grandmother and I believe it was almost 50 years old. It's definitely served it's purpose. During quarantine, the kitchen table had become the hot spot for a million activities, including homeschooling.It was … Continue reading New Addition.

This week I experienced burnout; again. I experienced burnout last September going through all the motions with my husband. This time, it was between being down, lack of sleep, over caffeinating and working out too hard when I shouldn't have. Yes even I, the fitness instructor, am human.

Even though I had decluttered the kitchen earlier this year, … Continue reading Decluttering for the Holidays

I will admit I did buy a few "extra" things aside from Halloween items for next year and a few Christmas items for my kiddos.
