Taking the Mountain

The Journey of a Mom in Motion

A Piece of Me

It’s been a while.

There’s really no other way to say it.


Because I’ve kind of lost my focus – myself – lately.

I guess the main thing that’s changed is that I now work part-time at Allie’s preschool. And while I only work Monday, Wednesday and Friday, it is so draining that it feels like more than what it is. More on this in a different post.

Do you ever get to a point where you’re just so broken down with day-to-day life that you just feel like you’re treading water? That’s basically how I feel right now. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love my babies. I LOVE my husband. I love this general phase of busyness. School. Baseball. Dance. Riding. Work.

But along the way, Katie has become less and less of a priority.

No, I’m not talking about a mani/pedi.

Although that would be nice.

No, I’m not even talking about a trip to the grocery alone.

That would be way too luxurious.

What I’m really talking about is space. Physically, mentally, emotionally.

This is not a “POOR ME” post, but rather a post to help me refocus on me just a little bit.

And one thing I realized that I missed was this little corner of my thoughts. Sometimes a girl just needs to vent — on a blog.

So here I am, working on me, piece by piece.


Right now I’m wondering what this morning will bring.

If I’m Honest

Sometimes I’m not really sure how honest/blunt/direct to be on here.

I mean, everything I write is obviously my opinion and I’m very sincere in those thoughts.

But today I’m going to be pretty direct.

Resolutions for 2018

It seems that people don’t really make resolutions.

It’s not cool.

Or they call them something else.

Like, “musings” or “thoughts.”

Well, not this girl.

I’m making official resolutions and sticking to them, by golly!

Horse Update

I hope this little space of mine doesn’t turn in to a blog just about postpartum depression and horses.

No promises.

Holiday Wrap Up

This is a little holiday wrap up from 2017.

No pun intended.

Ok, maybe just a little.

A Little Time

I’m taking my time this morning.  Or trying to.


It is currently a wind chill of 9 and lightly snowing.

RJ says there is a layer of ice on the road.

Am I driving my kids to school the day before Christmas break in 9 degrees and potential ice?

Maybe not.

Or where to begin.
