No matter how many tickles or chases, they are always ready for more.

And much too quickly I was in bed.

Tempers were hot, we cooled off outside.

Mama?  You see those holes in my jeans?  I got them when I was Zombie hunting.

Me: Who is this a picture of?
Son: Ummm, Erik?
Me: No, it's a picture of Mama, it's me when I was little.
Son: Why were you a little boy?

Investing in Myself

I've been feeling a little bit burnt out lately.  I have a long list of crafts to make, and books to read, and dinners to plan, and... I haven't been thinking much about what I really need.  So in the midst of this,  these other wise ladies posted their thoughts:
Liz Lamoreux
Vivienne McMaster

Sometimes the hardest thing is to do nothing, to take a break and breathe.  I push myself to stay up late to finish projects, or bring them with me to work on during my lunch.  I need to invest in myself.  There is only one me, and I need to take care of myself so I can be a better caretaker for my family.  No one likes being grouchy, or losing their temper.  I will be gentle with myself, I will leave time to exhale, and I know a little investment in myself is the best thing for everyone. 

I am going to start a practice of slowing down, and being.  To allow myself to be the imperfect creature that I am.  To accept myself as the imperfect creature that I am.

Mama I love you more than ice cream and bears, and the same as glass cups.

Young Adult Fiction

I am a YA addict!  I read from many different genres, but YA is my favorite.  I have a new author obsession right now too: Ilsa J. Bick .  I just finished Ashes and have another novel of hers reserved at the library.  I read her blog today and think she has an amazing thought process.  As the year grows cooler, what books do you find yourself drawn too?
