A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Out of the Blue


I haven’t posted in ions. My life has taken a different path once again. A good positive path.

I went in halves on a house with my ex-husband. The house is for my boys and I. I guess I can say it is definitely my dream home with a lot of work ahead of me but so worth it.

From time to time I am going post before and after pics of the reno.

 

The picture with the fake red brick was the kitchen before it was totally gutted. The cabinet doors are what my son and I stained to a darker color. No more drop ceiling yay! All these are basically of the kitchen. More to come!

Stop fearing and live your life


If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid.  Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?

My kids do just that for me.  Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am.  Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time.  I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid.  That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be??? 

I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire.  I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!

Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger.  You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.  

Staying motivated on days like this


It’s Friday and it’s been a long week. The kids are ready for a vacation and so are we.

I haven’t slept the past few nights because my mind has been going nonstop. I have taxes left to do besides our own. I’ve been subbing everyday and it snowed again last night lol.  Yes snow in upstate NY one more time.

It’s time to regroup and get with the program.  The key is to get back on track.  Stay focused and gave a purpose in life. Am I saying this for you or me? Today it’s a little bit of both.

Keep moving. If I can so can you.

I love Googling quotes and finding ones like this.   It’s simple and yet couldn’t be more true.  Love and appreciate the little things in life like your beating heart. Once you recognize this gift, everything else will come a little bit easier.
