Finding Joy Amongst Chaos

So, this last year has been nothing short of chaos. I started nursing school in August of 2023 and from that point on, I started losing my mind. I lived solely off of coffee, hugs and kisses, and tears. Lots and lots of tears. But, I am happy to say that I made it through my first year of nursing school! C's get degrees, right?? So, here I am at home with my babies once again and feeling alllll the pressure. Financial pressure, mom pressure, school pressure, wife pressure, just pressure. Thankfully I finally have some time to catch up on all the books that I have been hoarding in my book closet. I have a ton of books in there and its still not enough! I love to read and I don't just mean the material I have to read for school. I thoroughly enjoy reading for pleasure. It is what makes me happy. It is the joy that I find amongst all the chaos. My babies are getting older by the second and I am just not okay with it. We are having a pretty solid summer though. They swim with the neighbors all the daggum time, which means I have plenty of time to read. Someone has to be out there watching them. The pool is just getting to the temperature that I am comfortable with. My kids have been getting in since it was 62 degrees. Mama cannot do that. I truly believe these kids have zero nerve endings. Everyday is chaotic and I am finding myself beating myself up because I don't know if I am taking advantage of the time that I have. I want to get up super early and get a workout in, but then I also like sleep. I want to have a clean house. I still have a 4 and 6 year old, 2 dogs, and a husband. I know how truly blessed I am, and as the old saying goes, the grass is always greener on the other side. So, I guess for now, I will keep trying to get up at 5 am to get a workout in, kick back with a good cup of coffee and fall deep into a book. Happy Wednesday, all!

Some days are much harder than others

Have you ever looked at your children and wonder what makes them so mad so easily? Have you ever looked within yourself and wonder what makes YOU so mad? We are in the middle of 5 year old angst and

Is it March yet?

Moms, have you ever sat back, looked at your children and wondered, "well, how did I create these incredible tiny humans" while in the same breath going, "if I disappeared, would they notice?" I thin
