Oh gosh. The kids and I have been waiting all year for this day! SUMMER! Like I was telling you here, I am that mom, through and through. I want my children home. Like all the time.

I sat down at least 5 different times to type up this week’s post. And each time I highlighted the whole darn thing, hit delete and started over. Again. My brain can’t seem to focus on one complete thought. I’m not even sure if I can get through this post by only talking about my inability to focus. I might just start talking about something …

Our spring schedule is gearing up. Each morning Jason and I have a de-briefing on who’s running whom where and when. Some days are easier than others annnd, to be honest, not all the activities have started quite yet but so far so good! We’ve got this.

This Dance Battle Is ON!

Tammy Hiveley - April 5, 2017

Turns out I only like the idea of running but the actual execution is a struggle. Why is it so difficult to put on running shoes and go out the front door? Sounds easiest enough to me… It isn’t.

I love playing with my kids. For example, this weekend we played croquet, I punted the ball to my son in the yard, we went for a family walk, we’ve read together, and played games. But my kids are insatiable. “Mom, can you play such and such with me?” is a constant refrain around here. They can’t get enough of my time, and are always asking …

I’m Losing It.

Tammy Hiveley - March 23, 2017

Almost always, it feels like I’m losing it in more ways than one. This time though it’s not me losing my mind or my focus or even losing my way. This time I’m losing something completely different. The solid 10 pounds I’ve packed on this winter. ew. First off, I’m diving into a book a friend gave me over a year ago. Seems it takes awhile for …

All three of my kids celebrate their birthdays this week. It’s a bit crazy. Ok, it’s totally crazy. But it’s so much fun! While out shopping the other day for some of our birthday festivity food, the cashier happened to ask us what we had planned for the rest of the day. When I told her we were having a family party for all three …

Get Back Up Again

Tammy Hiveley - February 3, 2017

If you haven’t seen the trolls movie yet – you should. It’s pretty darn cute and has some catchy tunes. You never know when they’ll apply to your own life, so best to keep ’em tucked into your pocket for a day like I had yesterday. Nothing Earth shattering happened.
