Kids, Cats, and a Christmas Tree

Kids, Cats, and a Christmas Tree

We are on day eight of the 12 Days of Christmas I had no clue how I was going to write about for the Christmas decor in my home.   I live in a very small town home and I am not an interior designer by any means.  My house is usually a total disaster and […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!  By now many of you will be stuffed to the gills with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.  My family and I will be having the traditional meal tomorrow because we took our kids to our families favorite restaurant and then spent the night in an extended stay […]

Celebrating Their Life – Pregnancy Loss Awareness

Celebrating Their Life - Pregnancy Loss Awareness

I have tried to write this post for quite a while, but the timing did not seem right.  I have written in my journal about it, but those pages are much to raw and sad for everyone to read.  I never understood the journey once a woman loses a baby.  I was always sad for […]

Time to Take Care of You – Special Needs Mom Support!

Time to Take Care of You - Special Needs Mom Support!

When I signed up to be a mom I dreamed it would be magical and everything lovely. It was magical, but also very rough. My first baby, a boy named Tristan was born unhealthy and I struggled to keep him alive his first year of life. You can read more here about my son at […]

Special Needs Mommy Meltdown

Special Needs Mommy Meltdown

Being a special needs parent is hard physically, emotionally, and it is draining.  Being that we are a military family and move a lot we do not have the support of close family or friends, so a majority of my son’s care has fallen on my shoulders. Sometimes I will admit I wish I was […]

Work Hard to Dream Big

Work Hard Dream Big Stay Focused

My journey with this blog Inspired Housewife has taken me on some wild rides and I have met some wonderful people because of it.  What started out as a way to put my son’s story online so I could easily give people a link, has grown into something that helps people daily.  I know my […]

Gift of Life

Gift of Life

A few days ago on my personal Facebook timeline I shared something very personal.  I was at my computer and happened to look at the date and the time.  I realized it was the anniversary to my near death experience.  I always get a bit emotional on this day because I really feel I was […]

One Big Family

One Big Family

This morning after a doctor’s appointment I sat four cars back from a red stop light.  It was pouring rain and there standing at the curb was this mom and a little girl.  They were holding hands, as the little girl shivered while crying.  She was soaked head to toe like a little drowned rat.   […]

My P90X3 Journey

My P90X3 Journey

My entire life I have struggled with how my body looked.  I was never fat growing up, but I was also not thin.  You could say I was “thick.”  I remember vividly being 18 years old in a JC Penny’s changing room sobbing as I sat in the corner against the blue striped wall.  My […]
