Remembering My Week?

Do you ever have a week that goes by and when it’s done you don’t remember most of it? That seems to be happening more and more to me. I’m not sure if it is age, having 2 little ones, being busy, or the effects of long-term sleep deprivation. I just know that when I sit down to write this post each week, I have a hard time remembering my week.

Any tornadoes touching down in November is almost unheard of. I’m so

One More Try

I have no life. No social life that is and neither do my daughters. I feel guilt over it. Lots of guilt. My daughters should be having play dates and have friends, especially my two-year-old, right? It just hasn’t been easy meeting other parents and little ones. It is especially difficult because I’m an older mom. I’m not in the same social circles as most moms in their 20s and 30s. That doesn’t mean I haven’t tried. I have.  I made my first effort not long after my oldest, Ginny, was born. I enrolled her in a music class called
