It’s been almost seven years since we moved into our house. Sometimes it still feels like yesterday.
It sure doesn’t look like yesterday, though!
Before Christmas I deep cleaned all the kids’ rooms. And I noticed something.
The curtains in every single room were faded and worn. Ugh. New curtains can be expensive.
But they don’t have to be.
I’ve been thinking. Sometimes that’s a scary thing.
Ever since the day that inspired my post, “Ladies, Let’s Get Real,” I’ve been thinking about community. About how easy it is to feel alone in a crowd these days.
I’ll admit, I’m a professional loner, Oh, I connect sometimes…on my own terms.
I’ll admit I’ve succumbed to stay at home mom syndrome. You know what I’m talking about.
I wear jeans and t-shirts. Every day. I’d love to look cute, but comfort is far more important when you have a four year old to chase around.
Preteen boys eat. A lot.
Ever since my twelve year old hit his last growth spurt, he’s been eating everything in sight. He comes home from school famished and could easily eat mounds of junk food….if I let him.
But I don’t.
Lynnae would never yell at her kids.
My mouth dropped open in shock as my friend told me that’s what she thought.
