I'm not going into a long post today. This is just a quick announcement. If you look at the top of the website there is a new tab, "LaMaide Jewelry." This is a new venture I started to help pass the time and bring in a little extra cash. Primarily, it focuses on what I … Continue reading A New Adventure
I stepped away from this blog, unconsciously, just before Christmas. It later became less unconscious and more desperate. Over the past several months I got my first grader through first grade distance learning, I dealt with the queen of the temper tantrum (my 5 year old), and did a lot of thinking. Generally speaking, I … Continue reading Six Months Missing
Silver Bells I love this song. It’s was always a favorite of mine growing. This year, if we hear bells it’s probably a Charity related bell ringer. Please consider giving. So many people are in need this year.

My whole family could have regular appointments with doctors, dentists, and opticians. I left the job because the schedule I was working on was regularly changing and never in a way … Continue reading Health Only Comes With Wealth
Hi everyone! It's been so long since I posted, I wonder if I need to reintroduce myself. Instead, here is a link to post one: http://just-one-mom.com/2020/07/16/our-new-normal/. I turned 33 back at the end of September, and it was indeed the first birthday to bother me. I don't care about getting older. My hair has been … Continue reading Middle Aged Mom Life
First things first: I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post. I am currently fighting my way through the local school systems version of Distance Learning, and it is ridiculously time-consuming. It has been made clear that as parents, it's expected we alter our entire lives and adapt to whatever they dictate. They … Continue reading More Time Needed. Apply Within.
