What Does Eat, Sleep, Love, Repeat Mean to Me?

When I started Eat, Sleep, Love, Repeat in 2014, 3 days before my 24th birthday, I didn't anticipate it would ever get to this point.  I had hoped it would, but the thought that I could actually get here was crazy. 4 years later, I realize that I have not really opened up about why I… Continue reading What Does Eat, Sleep, Love, Repeat Mean to Me?

Storytime – The Day That I Could Not

I feel like there is so much that happens in my life and I don't get to share it with you for various reasons.  I don't like to blog too much about my personal life because it involves so many people and sometimes they don't like to be in the light.  But, I got expressed… Continue reading Storytime – The Day That I Could Not

Things I’ve Learned in 2016

Okay, so I know we are on the second day of 2017, but something had occurred to me while I was taking the day off yesterday (by taking the day off I mean cleaning, doing laundry, and putting away Christmas stuff).  I realized that I have learned a lot this past year.  I mean, I think… Continue reading Things I’ve Learned in 2016


Never Ready to Go Back

I have had the pleasure of having a four day weekend.  Four days!  I have considered this a mini-vacation and even though I didn't do much of anything, it was nice to have some time off of work (even if I got cabin fever because I was trapped inside my house due to ice.) It… Continue reading Never Ready to Go Back

How to have free time with a busy schedule

So, sometimes I don't know how I do it.  Currently, I work full-time at my mother's daycare, go to college, write in my blog (okay so it's sporadic at times), help manage a house, and help to home school my nephew.  My life is one big juggling act.  Sometimes I wonder how in the world… Continue reading How to have free time with a busy schedule


Dear Parents (A letter from a daycare worker)

Parents, I read about the article where a young boy died because a daycare worker sat on him and suffocated.  This is a hard letter for me to write because, as a mother, this is something that I prayed would never happen to my daughter.  Let me assure you, it should never happen.  This seems… Continue reading Dear Parents (A letter from a daycare worker)


What NOT To Do When Moving

Recently the Brumbelcrew* moved from our tiny two-bedroom apartment to a new location.  The new location?  My mother's house.  That's right.  This husband and wife duo, plus one kid, plus one dog, and a cat moved into two bedrooms at my mother's house.  I mean, it's not exactly two daughter is living the high… Continue reading What NOT To Do When Moving

My Daughter’s First Boyfriend

My daughter announced to me on Valentine's Day that she has a boyfriend.  I was absolutely shocked because, for one, my daughter is one of the most innocent people I know.  The idea of her having a boyfriend was something I hadn't expected to deal with for a while.  For another thing, my daughter is six.… Continue reading My Daughter’s First Boyfriend

Dear “Failures” of the Future

My dearest failures of the past, the present, and the future, I am writing to you today as a fellow failure in life.  You see, I want you to know, you are not alone and, chances are, you are not a failure.  I guess that's why I started this blog, besides getting readers. You see, all my… Continue reading Dear “Failures” of the Future
