Sentence a Day : February 2018

Hello again! I want to thank everyone who gave me feedback and encouragement on my post about having trouble being motivated to blog. I took a few days off and found that I missed writing, so I’m back just in time for the Sentence a Day linkup!

  1. YAY! So glad to see this post. This roller coaster of life can be so tiresome but so much better than the alternative!!! Hope you will try and I earned $40 from my couch yesterday. Took a good chunk of time but I feel like it will get easier. Right? Hopefully!!!

    Also, we are gathering things for a garage sale. We have gadgets and gizmos and clothes we don’t use so as soon as the first sunny, warm Saturday presents itself…BAM!

    Would Char be ok with just a little QT (quiet time) in her crib/bed on no-nap days? We have to do that with both of my grands. They need that down time and so do the adults. Sometimes, it works into an unscheduled nap…bonus.

    Glad you joined up for SaD. Just write when you want. And let everything fall into place around that.

    • I always appreciate your encouragement! I have been wanting to try Rev…how do you like doing it now?

      Char may be okay in her crib alone if I turn on a little aquarium thing that’s attached to the side…and pray HA! She’s definitely spoiled (let’s call it “well-loved”) since she’s going to be our only child. We have been trying to work on routines more lately though. I’m so bad about consistency both with her and myself!
