Have you ever buttoned up your shirt, and the buttons didn’t line up right, and then you could not figure out why the shirt did not feel right? To me that is how life feels right now…. like a weird-buttoned shirt that I can’t quite get to fit right.
How are you doing in all of this craziness? COVID19, “the virus”, Coronavirus…. it has taken on many names and we cringe at the sounds of these words. This virus has us feeling out of sorts and not even knowing what day of the week it is. I have friends who have told me that they have not showered for a few days, changed their clothes, and have almost become numb in their lives. This virus cannot take over our lives…. yes, we must live through this time and what is happening around us. Stores are on limited hours and supplies, schools are teaching differently, we cannot visit with friends for a while, but we can still LIVE!
Come and see how some simple routine things can change your numb life to a normal life. It might be a “new” normal….but it will help you reestablish a normal.

My husband and I have been talking more and more of late about having just a fresh start in life. So many times we get down, by the things we should’ve done, didn’t do or should do better. Attitude has a lot to do with how we perceive things and our attitude can drastically change our perspective.
So my husband and I have decided to sit down over the next 52 weeks and make some changes in our life. Nothing that drastic, nothing so miraculous that it will change the world… but what it will do is change our lives and how we look and view life.
The 52 week challenge of 2020 will be as simple as this. Each week on a Tuesday I will post here on the blog, also on Instagram and Facebook what our challenges are that we have chosen to do for that up-and-coming week. Feel free to take on the same challenges as us or come up with your own. We may not always meet that challenge… and that’s OK. The whole point of this is to make a difference in our lives. It’s to make a better you. It’s just a start fresh and recharge in life.
At the end of 52 weeks… We can look back and honestly tell ourselves that we tried new things, we face challenges, we set out to make a difference. Again whether all of those challenges were met exactly to perfection or not is not the point. But at the end of 52 weeks the point is that we are two better people because of having tried.
Our challenge for each other this week is called the “take 5”. We have challenged each other for this week to come up with five things over the next year we want to learn that we have been putting off for years. Graeme and I each need to come up with five different things that we want to either learn or experience. You might think five things are too simple… but when you add that to a full plate already …those five things will be a challenge in itself.
Come follow us on our journey as we begin the 52 week challenge as well as trying out five new things in this up-and-coming year.
Comment below if you dare to take the 52 week challenge 2020. Let me know what some of your challenges might be or if you’re going to follow along with the challenges that we put in front of ourselves. I would love to hear from you!

I have heard this saying many times….”KISS” and yet I need to be reminded of this simple quote on a daily basis. Have you heard of it?….”Keep it simple stupid”!
Well here I am starting over and getting my blog back up and running. I think for a long while I thought it had to be this “perfect” something, and of course I am not perfect and neither is my life. I envisioned it being… “WOW “…right from the start and WOW it is not….but WOW it can be down the road. I have a fear of failure and what will people think. What if it does not meet a certain standard ….what will your response be…and this list goes on.
For now…I need to “just start” and get it done, as my husband always tells me. He always talks about how most people talk and talk and just never start. Life can go on for days, months and even years and we never in the end start what we wanted too.
So for today….”Resume of a Mother”… is back on track. Blogs might be simple at times, fun and exciting at other times…but they have started again.
My goal is simply this….and it is also my personal mission statement, “to touch one life that will in turn touch another life”. My blog was and is designed to encourage moms at every level… to bring joy, wisdom… and information that will make you a better mom.
“Resume of Mother”…was founded with me being a wife and a mother who is living a different life than most. A Homeschool mom, special needs mom, adoptive mom, Autism, Epilepsy, full-time working mom, crafter, blogger, speaker, planner….and more….”I found my new normal and it is a moving target”. ..is my claim to fame.
Come join me again and follow me as I continue on this journey!
