How do you know when it is the right time to throw in the towel on a relationship? No, I am not talking about marriage, I am talking about a family relationship that continues to disappoint and be stress that is not something I need in this already crazy life and the world.…
A disclaimer right from the start, these are my opinions and my situation, everyone has a different story to tell, this is simply mine.
I took a bit of a break from blogging because it was just the right time to step away and focus on a few things that needed tending to in our home. …
Something has been on my mind as of late and I felt it was time to share, in hopes that maybe someone else out there needs to hear it so they don’t think they are the only one thinking it….
I started thinking the last few weeks about what it was and why I began doing this whole blogging thing/share my entire life with complete strangers. Here is just a little bit of a back story as to WHY I decided to write this particular post….
So I thought since some weeks there is not a ton that goes on in our life, especially after a bit of sickness, a canceled trip to Napa, and just trying to get back to normalcy, I would start sharing a few of my Housewife Life For Better or Worse posts from the archives!

I seem to have this conversation regularly with my husband, “why does everyone else seem to have all their shit together, and I don’t?” Well, folks, I am here to tell you that it is all fake.
