house in the 'hood

I can't believe this year is coming to a close.
What a year it has been!
If you've been around here for a while you'll know
2016 was a HUGE year of changes for me,
both personal and professional.
I've worked hard at it from both angles,
I've learned a lot,
and I have to say
I'm excited to do more of both in 2017.
Thank you for sticking with me through this rollercoaster of life.
I appreciate you more than words can say.
Now back to regular programming...

gifts that keep on giving

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
We definitely did.
The biggest hit was a snap circuit toy for my youngest...
all the boys fell in love with it and have spent hours building new inventions.
Its the gift that keeps on giving.
Today they built a working radio.
Maybe one will go into engineering.
You can tell that I'm trying really hard
to let go of my old ocd perfectionist ways...
all their new gear is piled up on the sofas and all over the floor.
I told myself it could stay until the weekend.
Whenever I feel anxious about the mess
I remind myself that
one day I'm going to miss the mess.
The memories are in the mess making.

regifting Christmas

Growing up I remember being told
that certain things you don't talk about
in polite conversation...
religion and politics being the big two.
Fair warning...I might just mention both today.
Click away if you must.
I wish you well and have a great day.
If not, let's see where this thought takes us.

words I live by

I shared this story on instagram last week
so if you follow me there
sorry for the repeat.
To me it's worth the re-run
in case someone needs this like I once did...

words to live by...courtesy of target

It's me.
Are you still there?
I'm here.
It's been nearly a month since I checked in.
Not that I haven't logged in to post.
I'd just stare at the screen,
not sure what to say,
but having a whole host of things I want to share.
Lots of stuff going on...I'm sure with you too.
I wasn't sure how to dive back in.
Here goes...
