While I do miss work dearly, I am trying to embrace a more "simpler" lifestyle.We've been doing more outdoor activities with the kids such as going to different state parks for swimming and hiking.Now that they are a bit older, they can manage walking longer distances.On one hike, my two "oldest" lasted over an hour.It … Continue reading Exploring Nature.
We've been spending a lot of time at that local "field." I honestly don't know we haven't before.It's only a two minute drive away. There's a pond, a soccer area and picnic benches. We've had meals there, played with kites and even just thrown rocks into the pond.They have a small "beach" area, that is … Continue reading Enjoying Simple Things.
Last Friday was a rough day. The kids were misbehaving and just bugging each other as per sibling usual. There were toys everywhere. I had asked them to clean up and they did. An hour later the house was a wreck again and they started misbehaving... again. Most parents threaten to take their kids favorite … Continue reading I Took My Kids’ Toys Away [And Gave Some Back].

I have to admit while I was finding my groove before with being at home, for some reason I have fallen off this weekend [and the past few days]. I just haven't had the motivation at night to work on my [entire] night routine. Instead, I've been focusing on making to-do lists first thing in … Continue reading Weekend Recap.
Hello May! This past weekend was amazing.I made it a point to wake up before the kids and it started my day on the right note. No to mention, the sun was shinning, the kiddos [mostly] behaved, I got to workout outside and even got to read.I wish every day was like this, but of … Continue reading Outer Order.
Thursday was a rough day. I went to a particular grocery store for the first time in three weeks and I just felt massive anxiety come over me. People were being rude, watching your every move. It just felt so odd. Walmart is the only place I can go in "peace." I go once a … Continue reading Anxiety.
This year's Easter baskets I kept more simple. I've had to use some stickers and treats sooner with during "social distancing." I've also given the kiddos their Easter pajamas early. These Anna dresses I spotted at Walmart over a month ago for only $3 from $16.00 a piece.Harry's pj's were $3.00 as well but they … Continue reading Easter Baskets [4.5 & 2 Year Olds]
