"life is a culmination of small moments, making up an incredible story"

  The answer to the question “How to blog about all the different aspects of my life, in a clean and strategic way.” appears to be not at all. Obviously, the only way I can do anything is perfectly, or not at all.  The irony is that in guiding our children, our team and our […]

Monday Minute : do it scared

January 9, 2023

What a week. Have you seen that tik tok? The one that says “whoo! what a week!” then someone else responds with “It’s Tuesday…”  That’s totally how I felt this week.  (side bar: should I be admitting how much time I spend on tik tok on the blog? Who knows.)   We got back at […]

Monday Minute : “See I’m doing a new thing!”

They say to not ever start your blog post with about how it’s been a long time since you blogged last, but I feel like it’s worth noting that I last blogged in March of 2020. Now we’re here in November of 2020, and it seems like March is a world away. Tomorrow will be […]

Monday Minute; Almost there.

I’m forcing myself to just write. How to start with the words is always the most difficult part, because it sets the tone for what I want to say in this blog post. I’m not sure yet what I want to say, so… maybe I need a format or something. It’s interesting being an adult. […]

Monday Minute : Phase Yellow.

This week has been a roller coaster. Some days I think we’re killing it, have it down and may even be thriving. Then other days I’m chugging coffee and yelling at the dogs before 8am and my patience is just gone and I want to quit before we’ve even started the day. Some ways we’re […]

Monday Minute : Stay at home…still.

It’s Wednesday morning ( just checked… afternoon) when I’m finally sitting down to write this. I’ve struggled for months and months about where to blog my Monday minutes, and I have absolutely used that as an excuse to not do it at all. Last week I watched a you tube video from a photographer I […]

Stay at home… Monday Minute

You’re not supposed to start a blog post talking about how long it’s been since you blogged before. Supposedly, no one notices that when scrolling through your blog posts. I think it’s probably OK for me to mention that it’s been a long time since I jumped in for a Monday minute, because at the […]

Monday Minute : Last Monday of the DECADE.

It’s the end of February! I’m excited to say that I’ve blogged consistently almost every Monday this year! I gave myself a pass last week, but I may go back and do something to make up for it this week. I had it planned, it just didn’t happen. On to March! I love the start […]

E turned four this week! It’s hard to believe that the little girl who had me on bedrest for three months is here in the world and big enough to love unicorns. This was our first official birthday at The Farm, and we had such a blast decorating and enjoying the time with friends. We’ve […]

Monday Minute : E turns 4

It’s dark and cold outside. We are all getting a bit of cabin fever, and our fuses are getting a bit short. I don’t even want to open my computer. I don’t want to leave my bed. This moment got me today. Jenny had lost her temper, and then immediately starting crying. Jenny has these […]

I almost always bite off more than I can chew. At this point last year I was running 5 different businesses and trying to manage our household with one little one in Kindergarten and one in Preschool. Most of the time I can handle this, but I also struggle a bit with depression. What this […]

Week Three : Jeanette has it all together.

I’m hoping this will get easier as we go. Maybe the last Monday of 2019 I’ll be typing up a storm and have my entire life together. Seems possible. For today though, I had no idea what I wanted to blog about. Do I write about the projects we’re working on at The Farm? I […]

Week Two : What to do.

Happy New year! It’s the very first Monday of the year! I don’t know about you, but Monday’s are actually my favorite day of the week. We protect our Sunday/Sabbath rest day for our family fiercely, so usually I feel really rested, and ready to take on the world the next day. I’m not one […]
