LTML26: A Diversion

First, I can’t believe that we are now in week 26 of the year, and I’m in week 26 of my project 52.  Things didn’t turn out the way that I expected, but that’s okay.  Since Linus is out of commission, I don’t mind sharing places that I have gone to with the family. Since it is July, that means home school has started for us.  If you haven’t noticed, I’ve not been that active on the web lately (I’m sure you noticed, because you DO care about me *stares at the screen*)....

LTML25: Seriously Serious

So…Mr. C and I have been talking about getting something new for LittleZ. You see, when your in the home of an older sister, you sometimes are surrounded by girl toys…a a lot. So we wanted to get something special for him. This special gift had special requirements. we didn’t want batteries for it, and we wanted to make sure that he couldn’t choke on it if it broke. We wanted an action figure in all of it’s action-ness (yes, I just made that word up) and we wanted something that he could love. Of course it had to...

5 Things To Do To Move Forward

We’ve heard it said before that we cannot let our past hold us back.  We should look forward, always, and keep our eyes on the prize.  But what about forgiving yourself for your past so that you can move forward? We’ve all made mistakes.  There are things that we’re not proud of, and things that we wished never happened.  Yet, at our moments of weakness and fear, these mistakes creep up and sometimes paralyze us. Ask any parent, we’ve all done something that we wish we didn’t do, or in a...

Sunday Reflection: Difficulties on Focussing on Prayer

Sunday Reflection: Difficulties on Focussing on Prayer

“For your heart will always be where your riches are.” – Mathew 6:21 I’ve done this, day after day. I’ve sat myself down, and began to pray, but something always popped in my head. There was always something to do, always something to take care of instead of just praying. So, in my dedicated time to pray, I found myself fighting off the temptation to focus on anything else but my prayers. Praying seems to be the easiest and yet hardest thing for us to do these days. In an age where we want everything now, some of us...

LTML24: Becoming One With The Herd

Almost a year ago, I convinced Mr. C that we should get a wildlife conservation society membership.  I love the idea being part of a bigger picture, and showing my kids that they can do their part to help.  Well we got the membership, and aside from going to the Aquarium and the Prospect Park Zoo, I haven’t been using it much.  All that changed a few weeks ago when I drove to the Bronx Zoo!  Yup I drove there! From my home, it’s about an hour and change on the highway.  Now don’t laugh, but I’m...

Declining Drinks In Your 30s and Beyond

I would have never thought I would end up writing a post about this, but here it goes: I don’t like to drink alcohol.  Aside from the Sacramental wine at church, I don’t partake on the habit. This doesn’t mean that I’m judging you because you do.  I just hope that you don’t judge me too harshly because I don’t. Over the years, I have had my share of people who were “well intentioned” and wanted to make sure that I “fit in” by constantly pointing out that I don’t have an alcoholic beverage in my hand.  Of course these same...

Slow To Anger

Slow To Anger

He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly. (Proverbs 14:29 NASB) How often have I done this? How often had I been quick to get angry over something without understanding. Probably more than I would like to admit. But I have done it, as have you. We only need one time to remind us. Maybe it was something we assumed, or thought we knew the whole picture, but there are times that we allowed our emotions to take control and paid the price for it later. Either by apologizing, or by other means, we...

LTML23: Wishing You Well

This week has been a tough week. It’s not the work or things on my never ending todo list, it just so happened to be rough. LittleZ is in the throes of separation anxiety (which is normal) but being a stay at home mom, that means he really never leaves my side. So just doing something simple like taking a shower is emotional for us all. The good news is, I know he will grow out of it. Bad news, I’m just not sure when. Regardless of how rough this week has been, I wanted to share something that made me smile. Both my siblings...

I’ve Got A Secret…Shhhh

I’ve got a secret…a Victoria’s Secret secret! I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that I made the cut for the Victoria secret influensterVox box.  Since I’m writing this post from my phone, please excuse me.  Now on to the box! We have a sports bra, measuring tape, and VXS sports socks.  Sports Bra   First impression: The feel of the bra is amazing. It’s not like the typical sports bra that you buy from the sports store at all.  It has padding in the cup area to hide our...

LTML22: A Sweet Treat

This week, the kids are still under the weather. We’ve gone to the doctor and they have their meds, I’m just waiting until they begin to feel better. I have something awesome planned for them this weekend, so I hope that they will be well enough to go. For this Life Through My Lens Thursday, Mr. C brought home a very special treat from his Mom. I like to call it sticky rice. I’m sure there is a special name for it (a name that I have not let learned nor can I pronounce yet) but I’m working on it! I love his...
