Even when its hard to move,

take small steps forward.

Because every step will lead you

farther away from where you

were yesterday.




My teen is heading out of state.  He’s never been so far away from home before.  I’ll admit, I am a bit nervous, but super excited for him to experience things without me hovering about.  I remember my church retreats growing up.  I had so much fun with my friends away from my parents.  I hope he has a blast. ❤

Playing Catch up

No Matter how hard I try to keep up, I am always falling behind.  There is just not enough hours in a day.  And maybe I’m a bit lazy and really enjoy my relaxation time, but I always come to regret not having finished or continued as I had planned.






So far behind…

So seeing as I will never catch up, I figure that I will restart fresh in March with me CY365.  In the meantime despite the snow and ice last night, it crept up to a mere 50 degrees this afternoon.  Felt almost like a heat wave since we have been so used to 11 degree weather so far this winter.

Here is National Harbor in DC.  Its a cute little place that has expensive shops and restaurants.  The scenery overlooks the Poo-tomac River (filthy it is) but the structures are really neat to see.  And there is a ferris wheel that you can ride for $15 a person that gives you a fantastic view of DC and probably Maryland.

So, not playing catch up, but enjoy the view!
