I like to think we are just a normal everyday family. Don’t we all?
It’s that bit of not normal that’s unique to every family that gives us the differences that are worth sharing, the differences that help us learn from one another, and sometimes its the differences that make us the same.
My difference is the way my youngest is helping me look at the world a rethink how to homeschool middle and high school even though I’ve been at this teacher-as-mom gig for over 20 years. My difference is learning to be healthier so I will be alive for the important moments for my children. My difference is to be honest about my weight, unhealthy habits, and the ups and downs of balancing life, stress, and fitness. My difference is to sometimes be random, if I’ve dug into a serious topic I might want to share, so then I do.
I also would like to bring a lighthearted difference in not taking my actual house too seriously. There are so many things to buy and projects to work on in a house. So many times our plan gets downgraded by time and money, but you know what? It’s almost always nice, certainly always nicer than it was to begin with, sometimes better than expected, and every once in awhile it’s adequate and nothing to brag about. You can read these and laugh with or at me (either one, I don’t mind), you can try some things yourself, maybe get inspired, and maybe just do it better. If you do please send me pics.
Throw in a little travel and then you have a good idea of who I am.
Just a person kinda like you, sharing my interest, and trying to be good enough to be Wonder Woman, but not quite.
