Making Meditation a Daily Habit

So January is flying by. I’m still wrestling with pneumonia. It’s zapping my energy. But I’m also trying to stay healthy. Physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.

Tackling Home Organization

I have something to confess. My husband is into roleplaying. He likes to have me dress up as a maid and then clean up around the house. That is a joke I’ve been doing for years. But it is true. My husband is the clean one in our house. He was an only child. His […]

Thanks for the Memories, 2016!

I can’t believe it’s the end of 2016. Some years I can’t wait to be over. Even though I know that starting a new year is symbolic more than anything. Like ending one year and starting a new year doesn’t mean that everything is magically better. Still, there are some years that I couldn’t wait […]
