No longer a hustle – Now a run

Posted on

As a “newbie” getting fit fanatic, I have a new appreciation for running. The few times I have actually jogged, (cause it’s really not “running” as I think of it) I see how many calories one can burn by doing this rather than just walking.  Even riding a bike burns less calories over the same […]




Week thirty of Fun & Crazy

Posted on

So week thirty started out in the Huntington Lake Campground (where we hope to stay again) and ended at home with a total of six-children in our house! We had a fantastic Cub-Scout camp at Huntington Lake where the boys earned a couple badges and worked on a hiking requirement. My oldest also earned his […]


The Newest Addition to Our Family

Posted on

No, I’m NOT pregnant.  And I’m VERY HAPPY to say that. This summer, our family became foster parents to two different furry-family members.

Catching Up with My Mom

Posted on

My mom has been in the hospital for four days since writing this post. I have had some of the best one-hour blocks of time that I have had in my recent memory with her.  No kids around to interrupt, no worries outside of the hospital bed and occasional interruption of a meal being delivered […]



Getting It Done, sort of…..

Posted on

I haven’t posted about my 30-days of hustle experience for quite some time, as Easter has taken its place. I got over the “dip” (a term I learned that happens when you are trying to accomplish a goal) in trying to finish my mother’s advanced directive. We actually read and filled out four pages! I […]
