Currently...





Listening:  My girls are still asleep and hubby left for work.  It is just me and the new computer!

Loving:  Big Miss is home from college and we are having such a great time.  She was here for Christmas, went away with her boyfriend and his fam for New Year's, and is now snuggled in her bed here at home.

Thinking:  I love teaching almost as much as I love being a mom, but if I had the chance to stay home, I would jump on that chance.  I had a taste of it when my babies were babies and I wouldn't change those 7 years for anything in the world.

Wanting:  We have been bad credit card people for many years.  That and my student loans looms over us every single month, so 2013 is the year of less spending and getting rid of the debt that chains us down.

Needing:  Who doesn't need an extra week or two or three...

OLW:  Last year my word was release and I released as much as I could.  I wanted to keep the same word because I still have so much bottled up, but I think balance is a great sister word to release, so balance it will be.  I know that in order to balance out my life, I also have to release, so I have the best two little words to go by this year!  If you want to read my OLW post, it is on my mommy blog, it just might inspire you!  Click here:  BALANCE

  1. I stayed home with my babies for seven years too! I would never trade those years for anything. I miss it. Love teaching, but love my family more. I am totally with you on getting out of debt too. It is hard, but would be such a relief. I love your blog. So happy to find you through Currently. I am your newest follower.
