31 days to clean?!

Ok so i started doing the 'Frumps to Pumps' right?! well i was going to re-start! haha so i went over to Sarah Mae to read up and get ready, well she is actually starting to do her "31 days to clean" ebook again! I am so excited because even though i have the ebook, i still havent done it. Now I have the chance to do it along with her, the author! How great is that?! Since I can't do two books at once "Frumps to Pumps" will have to wait til July!

It will be starting June 4th, Sarah Mae will be posting new challenges every morning Monday through Friday!

If you would like to join in and have a "Martha house the Mary way" you can buy her book here

Can't wait to get started next week!


My heart aches so bad some days. I miss her tremendously. I know she is in a magnificent place, but I still miss her. I miss talking to her, going to see her, going shopping with (for her for the last year or two), looking at crochet patterns, finding new recipes and using old ones, and taking her to the doctors. I miss her hugs, her kisses, her joy, her smell, her love. I miss my Grandma. I miss everything about her. I can't imagine how my mom feels. I don't want to.

I still cry when I pass the bank she used, or when I sit in her room, or when I try to teach myself to crochet. I cry because my mom no longer has her momma to hug and kiss and love on.

However, my Grandma can now breathe without wearing oxygen, she can smell, she can run and jump. She is walking streets of gold and singing with the angels.

She was such a wonderful woman. Always wore a smile even when she didn't feel well. She loved everyone and tried to always send you home with food! She loved children and opened her home to them her whole life. My cousins had just moved in with her and papaw before she passed.

I miss her but I am glad she isn't in pain anymore. I thank God she got to know Zoey (and that Zoey got to know her) and that her and Jaxson got to meet.

I will always miss her.

I've been thinking

I wanted to sit back for a while and decide on what I really wanted this blog to be. I also wanted to grieve, to love my Momma through this, to love on my little boy before he grows up to fast like his sister, and to get through the PostPartum junk. Oh the postpartum junk! Am I doing this blog because I have to or because I want to? What content did I really want on here? What did I really want to include? I do want to be doing this, i need to do it honestly. I need to write this stuff down. I've been a writer my whole life and I got too far away from it. Way too far away from it. To the point where it doesn't feel comfortable sometimes. ( so please excuse all grammar, punctuation and just plain silly mistakes) I miss how therapeutic it was. How happy it made me feel even if I was writing wasn't happy. So that's what I'm doing. I'm writing. Writing what I feel. Sharing my life. My life with an amazing hubby, a 3 year old little girl, a 3 month old little boy, a husky/chow doggy, 2 turtles. And that's just the beginning. I have so much in my life to be thankful for. So be expecting more updates...lots more and on a regular basis! God Bless
