Therapy Blogging....

My blog is a place of therapy for me.'s therapeutic for me.

So why the heck wouldn't I use this platform more often?

Does that mean...I've been having some good no need for "therapy blogging"?

I don't know...actually


Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. 

UP Michigan Christmas 2016

I decided to type today because I don't feel like going on Facebook and sharing my life because there is always so much stuff going on in my mind that some of my friends would :

unfriend me

love me more

hate me more

think I had the best life ever

roll their eyes

think I had serious issues

why don't I ever like their pics

she posts to many pics

why haven't I seen Chris lately

did she leave the church...

I like her...she's so sweet

She's not really that organized

She shares way to many posts....

I guess I could go on...but why really?  

This blog is my "neck of the woods" side of the place

our michigan vacation spot...daydreaming today

to vent


show off


share my struggles


praise life

share life...

I really should blog more often.  But you know...I do struggle with people knowing to much of my life.  Some may say...."Oh you shouldn't put all your dirty laundry out there?"

I agree...sometimes.  I literally did on Facebook one day....Posted a picture of my dirty laundry.

An awesome thing is that I got rid of so many of our clothing that I'm actually managing laundry way better now.  Yeah...celebrating that!! (OMG...did you think I was gonna say "I got rid of so many of our friends on FB" because they could not dare see dirty laundry on a floor.  hehe!)

Ok....back to what I was saying before....ummm... Wait....I forgot what I was typing?

I got distracted with life and laundry.  Usually happens here.

Oh...yeah...why the heck do we want to share crap on Facebook where it would make people gossip about us or think negatively of us?  Ok....Usually they celebrate with us.

Or why do we always just share the beautiful things in life acting like our life is lived in Pinterest.

Honestly though...The whole thing with being careful what you post on social media is a huge problem.  I'm not talking about showing our cleavage or butt, pun intended, BUT sharing struggles as well as our praises.  Its ok!! And I guess if you wanna show some cleavage you can...just beware of haters. 

Yeah...people can be nasty and rude and actually stop talking to you because you share crap on social media. 
There will always be HATERS who will just HATE for the heck of it.  Either they're jealous of your life or think you belong in a mental institute. Somebozo will always have opinions.  

And hasn't happened to me but who knows what people's secret opinions are of me. I tell myself and others....either stop doing it (sharing your junk on social media) or who the crap cares what they think or say!!

I'm personally a people pleaser...have been all my life.  I want people to like me.  Honestly though....

Don't we all have struggles?

Don't we all have dirty laundry?

Don't we all have friends to lose?

Don't we all have friends to make?

Don't we all feel "sexy" sometimes and share a million selfies?

Don't we have friends who will always LOVE us?

Don't we all have those that love our transparency because it makes them feel like:
"Wow I can relate. I'm not the only one with an imperfect life."


Come on people...don't hide!  
It is your prerogative
(how many of you thought of Bobby Brown just now? 
Come on you know you did...I did.)


I always wonder who reads this.  Yeah...I'll post it on my Facebook. 
Hello FB friends.  Welcome to my world. 
Keep up with my posts...goal is to post at least once a week.  


yeah...we'll see

oh and please don't get offended...

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
