Munchkins and Chores

Since I’m on this whole making tons of changes kick, one thing I am trying to work on is our little cleaning routine.  Most days, I am constantly going over my “to-do” list in my head.  And I can often get really, really, really overwhelmed.  Me and overwhelmed…do not do that whole coexisting thing very well.

No More “Trying”

So these past few days, I have been all over the place, emotionally.  And today, I was super distracted with all the things going on with our youngest twin.  (For those that don’t know we just found out that she has a peanut allergy.)  And yeah, I know it could be worse and that it isn’t […]
