Crazy Week!!

I had intended to write more than I did this week, but it was a particularly busy week. I had some extra long days due to a PTA event, volunteering, and working on my relationship with my husband. Being separated isn't easy, but things are looking up for our future. I've also been making a lot of travel plans for the next month. Aside from going to New Orleans with my daughter during spring break in a week and a half, I'm also going to be meeting a friend of mine from Seattle in Houston for a couple of days, and my husband and I agreed to go away for a weekend to Fort Worth in April. During those three short trips, I'll be completing several of the items on my list and I'm so excited! I wish I had the time to do another item before spring break, but I don't see things slowing down before then. This coming week will be slightly calmer than this one, but just making preparations for some of the items on my list can take quite a bit of time. But it's something that I love to do, so I don't mind any of it!

Inspired to Write More Often!!

Until now, I hadn't really thought of writing posts unless it was about what I am going to do or what I had accomplished. But I'm currently reading an inspiring book by Gretchen Rubin titled The Happiness Project. I'm forever trying to learn more about how to get the word out about my blog and she writes six days a week and is really successful, so I'm going to try to write more often! At the moment, I can't imagine what I would write about to get to six days a week, but I'm willing to give it a shot! Check out her blog at

I'm so excited to be heading to New Orleans in two weeks!! My 16-year-old daughter and I have never taken a trip that was just the two of us, so this will be our first! We've always been with my mom, husband, a friend, or someone. And we can actually afford to go and have a really good time because we finally sold our RV!

Sponsoring a little girl from Ecuador

I have wanted to sign up to sponsor a child for years and it feels so good to finally be doing it! Angela is an adorable 7-year-old who likes to draw. I hope that what feels to me to be a small amount per month will make a big difference in her life! I have no idea how these things work, but I'm hoping to be able to write to her and maybe even meet her one day.
