I've been homeschooling now for a few years and I still feel like every year I need a refresher course on what it means to homeschool. Take, for example, this instance. Right now I am at my wit's end and losing my patience, so I know that it is time to sit back, reflect, and… Continue reading Homeschooling 101
I've bought myself a food journal. It's really cool b/c it has cuss words in it. Like it tells me to "Keep F***ing Going." Who wouldn't love that? Well, there may be some... but, oh well. Anyway, I've been trying to track my food intake and I can't help but notice how much CARB LOADED… Continue reading Mindset
Now, I'm not one to endorse anything, but I have to say something about The Mirror. It's a workout/trainer thing that looks like a mirror, and you can see yourself in it, but there is a virtual trainer that shows up on it as well. What's cool is that you can choose from 15 min,… Continue reading The Mirror

If I'm being completely honest with myself, there is a HUGE reason why I haven't been keeping up with this blog... my book isn't doing so well, and I guess that I am embarrassed. I put my heart and soul into that book, and to have it flop is something that I didn't truly expect.… Continue reading Avoidance

August will be here before I know it (plus all the summer school stuff that we will be working on), so I have to make sure that my… Continue reading Been Busy
I'm starting to look at curriculum for the summer and next year. It's kinda hard b/c as he gets older, we are starting to enter into 7th grade and I've never taught middle school science or history or math. These things, I think, are going to be the toughest things that I have ever done… Continue reading It’s that time

As I said on my homepage, I am a mother, a quilter, and a homeschool teacher. I've been thinking about the mothering and teaching part quite a bit and have decided that maybe I need to showcase those things as well. Being an author is not the only thing that runs my life. Typically, that's… Continue reading Changing things up a bit
Willie B, on Denver's Rockin' The Rockies, promoted my book on "Do Ya Favor Tuesday" thanks to my wonderful husband who emailed them and set up the spot for "Bordering Shadows" to be promoted on air here from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs with Denver being in the middle! KBPI is one of the largest… Continue reading Made the radio (thx KBPI)!
