    Friday Goal Day – August 25, 2017

    Overall, this has been a good week.  My biggest goal for the week was to write consistently and I definitely achieved that goal.  However, I didn’t even really think about my weight loss goal, and I am not planning to work on driving until September when Ryan is back in school.  I feel happy with my writing, but it is clear that I need to tweak my goals a little bit. For writing, I blogged every day except Thursday and also outlined the chapters of a book and wrote half of the first chapter.  I have a lot of ideas in my head, but I don’t have nearly enough time…

    My first #MicroBlogMonday

    In looking at different types of blog link-ups, I stumbled across this idea of microblogging and Microblog Mondays.  The basic idea is to just take something that is on your mind, write up a quick paragraph on it and publish it.  #MicroblogMondays is a link-up that was created by Melissa at Stirrup Queens.  You can read more about the ideas behind Microblog Mondays here: What is #MicroblogMondays. As soon as I came across this idea, I knew I wanted to participate.  I have started so many blog posts that I just couldn’t finish and had writer’s block so many times.  The idea of just writing whatever is on my mind, similar…

    Friday Goal Day

    Right now this blog is all over the place and really just something that I update whenever I have a spare moment.  At the moment, I am only blogging for me.  However, I would love to eventually use this blog as a possible way to connect with others and maybe build a community.  In order to do that, first I need to get myself back to blogging consistently.  To help me do that, I have been brainstorming about a content schedule a lot over the past few days. One thing that is really helpful to me, would be to have a set day to check in about and refine my…

    Panic Wednesday

    I was supposed to blog on Wednesday, but I did not.  I sat down many times throughout the day, and attempted to blog, but I just couldn’t finish.  Wednesday was a panic day for me. There wasn’t anything that I was consciously worried about, and yet my entire body felt trapped in a state of panic. My heart and my thoughts were racing all day.  It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest, making it difficult to breathe.  I could not think straight, and I wanted nothing more than to curl up in some dark corner until those feelings went away (which of course I couldn’t do, because…

    Welcome

    Welcome to my blog! I have blogged before and stopped over time for one reason or another.  I could pick up writing at my previous blog, but I’ve decided that this blog needs a fresh start.  This blog is meant to be a blog about parenthood and self-improvement, with a heavy dose of anxiety, autism and love. About the characters  I am a quasi-crunchy, anxiety-filled, stay-at-home mom to two kids.  Ryan (age 6) is about to finish first grade.  He is autistic, happy, and just an all around awesome kid.  Saoirse (age 2 months) is our newest addition.  She is a happy little baby who likes bouncing on exercise balls…
