Changes ~ My Journey Continues

My Journey Continues

I imagine that hearing from me after so long might be perplexing, so let me explain. For several years I blogged regularly – I had so many things I wanted to write about – homeschooling, country life, gardening, my spiritual journey… but my blog became neglected and somewhat forgotten. If you’ve been a subscriber since …

A Fork in the Road

To blog or not to blog I started this blog nearly three years ago on my 53rd birthday. My husband and I were beginning our transition into the empty nest and I had no idea what life held next. The blog was a way of sharing that transition with others, as well as working through …

Drifting in the Doldrums

I find this empty nest stage of life rather amusing. For so many years our lives revolved around our kids’ needs and schedules, but now that they’ve both grown up, my husband and I are like a ship without an anchor. There are many options available to us, but we’re drifting in the Doldrums waiting …

On a More Personal Note

On a More Personal Note

Blogging has been a personal journey for me. I started because I enjoyed writing and sharing my home and hobbies, and also because I wanted to become more “techy.” Can an old dog learn new tricks? Well, sure she can! (And who are you calling an old dog?! LOL!) At the point of my life …

Rockport Revisited ~ Rebuilding from Disaster

Rockport Revisited ~ Rebuilding from Disaster

How does a community survive a direct hit from a class 4 hurricane such as Harvey? How long does it take to rebuild and restore? The day after Hurricane Harvey made landfall, my husband left our home in Missouri to go to Rockport, Texas, to check on our business. He didn’t know what he would …

Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

My husband and I are still adjusting to the changes brought on by emptynesthood but I think we’ve made good progress. We don’t seem to be as depressed and worried. Our evenings are usually pretty quiet, and since its just the two of us, every night seems like date night. We recently went on a …

Learning How to Learn…And Loving It!

Learning How to Learn...And Loving It!

When I retired as Homeschool Teacher, I started blogging because I enjoyed writing and wanted to learn more about using the internet. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising, but that was right before the internet came to be, so my education didn’t include anything about it. I haven’t always enjoyed writing, either. I went to …

Comfort Zones

I could have named my blog something about leaving my comfort zone, because it seems like I’ve been doing a lot of that. In The Birth of Curren Christian Academy, I shared how we began homeschooling. That was a big leap out of my comfort zone. My biggest fear in homeschooling was that I wouldn’t do a …

Welcome to My World ~ Transitions

Hi, I’m Michelle. I just celebrated my 53rd birthday and I’m transitioning into the empty nest phase. After spending fourteen years homeschooling my two children, I feel both excited and uneasy about what the future holds. I enjoy writing and I think I lead a fairly interesting life, so I thought I’d try sharing some …
