Christmas Break: What to do, what to do…

The assignments were graded, the assessments were scored.  The out of office response said ‘NO’!

Look on the Bright Side

With all that is going on in our world today, finding the good in each day proves difficult for me on many days.

Short on Time? Two Simple Recipes that can be Prepped in Advance!

My oldest is a joiner.  FREQUENTLY. She has dipped her toe into many organizations and sports over the last several years.  This year is no different. On any given day she can be found building pinewood derby cars (a glittery blue truck?) for cub scouts, learning about the Bible at her PSR class through our… Continue reading Short on Time?

For me, getting strong was my first goal.  So, I started with the authority on building strength, Mark Rippetoe.
