{SQT} Piano, Party, And School Prep Without Pep

Well, I had three potential topics for this week, NONE of which panned out the way I expected. All were going to be very exciting and WOW inducing and I’m feeling a bit of, “Why can I not get my life together since I’m almost forty?” Not having control over several big projects in my Read More

#sackclothandashes And Action

Today begins the #sackclothandashes campaign founded by my good friends Kendra and Bonnie. I invite you to join along with us for 40 days of fasting and prayer in reparation for the sins committed against the faithful of the Church by those who should have been leading it.   While it would be easy to Read More

{SQT} A Devotional, Some History, and a Book of Bricks

BOOK REVIEWS! Which means tons of affiliate links that generate tens, and tens of cents for me every time you click and buy a book, or pack of Clearblue Fertility Monitor test strips. 1. He Speaks to You, Sr. Helena Burns FSP (of Twitter renown) Since my newly discovered love of the Lectio Divina method, Read More

{SQT} August Is The Relaxing Month Of Worry

1. Since being sick earlier in the summer, I started watching ‘Parks and Recreation’. I have not followed a TV show since Tony and I rented seasons of the Sopranos from Blockbuster Video. It’s eating up too much of my time and I’ve made no progress in War and Peace. On the other hand, it’s Read More

How to Teach Your Kids About Kids Like Mine

It’s SMA awareness month! Time to spread some awareness. Some years I’m more motivated than others, and after several years of blogging about SMA and special needs parenting, I sometimes feel like I have nothing new to say. But, while driving in the car craving Sour Patch Kids, I tried to mentally think of any Read More

Enjoy a Spend Free Weekend

In an effort to stay on top of trends, I’m writing my version of a post I’ve seen all over Pinterest. The ‘Spend-Free’ weekend (or week, or month, or sometimes longer if you have a fully stocked pantry of beans). I’m not really to sure why someone would want to voluntarily undertake a spend-free amount Read More

{SQT} Deschooling, Girls’ Weekend, And Seriousness

Well, another week has gone by so I think it’s safe to say I will NOT be updating last Friday’s post. 1. Summer is kicking my butt. It’s all very lovely butt kicking mind you; filled with sun, surf, and tons of memories I hope no one will hold against me. But I’m exhausted. Even Read More

{SQT} Episode LATER

{SQT} The NyQuil Edition

Since last Friday I have: 1. Saturday: Hosted our annual Nativity of St. John the Baptist party. It was a record turnout with 129 people, mostly children, and I think the warmest temperatures yet. 2. Sunday: Hosted a tenth birthday party for Fulton and some of his friends complete with a scavenger hunt, water gun Read More

What Has Helped Me On My Journey As a Special Needs Mom

Yesterday Fulton turned 10. T! E! N! Or as he put it, “I’m all ten fingers now!” Every year in June, I can’t help but reflect on Fulton’s diagnosis and his first birthday (which fell a little over a week after we got the news). Addie was six when Fulton turned one. Having a ten-year Read More

{SQT} Atlantic City, Camp, And My Favorite People

What does a couple with five children do when all the kids are out-of-town? via GIPHY Okay, maybe just me literally, but inside Tony is also doing the mashed potato and rocking a sweet beehive. 1. The big kids went to my parents on Saturday after we all attended the vigil Mass. Sunday, Tony and Read More

{SQT} Midday Edition

1. Tuesday night I went to the last homeschool mom’s social of the year. Despite trying to leave several times, I arrived home way too late for my usual 5:30 a.m. alarm. It’s another sign of my approaching 40th birthday that it’s taking me all week to catch up from that one crazy evening out. Read More
