    FOSTER CARE

    okay, let’s do this old school blogging

    I haven’t kept up with sharing our foster care journey here on the blog for the last while. Here’s the last six months in a nutshell: And one more to add to the list: R2 and BB8 are currently at our house for the weekend and maybe longer . . . Just when you think you know what is going on with fostering a curveball gets thrown. I’ll unpack this more in the future but just wanted to throw out a quick update. Here’s a look at our foster care timeline.

    an incomplete LIST of the 2023 READING CHALLENGES & READATHONS

    I highly doubt that most blogging gurus would suggest naming a list blog post an incomplete one, but I’m not going to lie, this list will not include all the 2023 reading challenges out there. That just seems like setting myself up for failure. Thus, an incomplete list. I do plan on coming back to this list throughout the year as I come across new challenges but if you know of some coming up that I am unaware of, I would love for you to leave a comment below and I’ll add it to the list! That all being said, I attempted to do this last year and completely failed.…

  • Merry Christmas!
    LIFE

    have yourself a merry little CHRISTMAS

    I just wanted to pop in with a quick little Christmas post today. We’re celebrating our family Christmas a day early due to other family get togethers so this morning is officially our Christmas. Last night the kids unwrapped a family gift (it’s always a board game but some how they always forget that) so we played the game after they unwrapped it and it was fun, I think it was a good pick. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, I’ll be back in a few days and will probably be 110% into goal setting mode (if past experience is any indicator). Merry Christmas!

  • Flow Puzzle
    LIFE

    rating all the PUZZLES I’ve done

    Last year I really started getting into puzzling. Not to the point where I am watching puzzle channels on YouTube (in case you are wondering, yes, they do exist). But, I’ve realized that winter is a great season for doing puzzles, since it’s chilly outside I can sit inside with a cup of my homemade hot cocoa and just work on a puzzle. For some reason I find them very relaxing and sometimes that’s just what I need. Earlier this week I came across someone who had a blog post of all their favorite puzzles. While I would like to write a post like that at some point, I don’t…

  • New Year - New Things!
    GOALS,  LIFE

    the beginning of 2023 goal setting

    I love the time between Christmas and New Years, it’s when I go hard on goal setting. But apparently I’ve started a little earlier this year because it’s not even Christmas and I feel like I have most of my goals for the year figured out. I’m not going to be sharing most of them today but just wanted to pop in and say that I will be back to using this space on a regular basis and it will be my main/only blog going forward! I’m not really sure who I am telling this because I haven’t used it much so there aren’t many people on the site these…
