About This Blog

For years my dad has tried to convince me that the heat in his beloved Southwest isn't all that bad. I was never falling for it. Really, dad? 120 degrees isn't all that bad? Ri-iiight. "But, Mandi," he would say, "It's a dry heat. And that makes a huge difference."

I could never comprehend how that could be true; I could never wrap my brain around it. And then one day someone asked me how I could function in a home with so many children, and all of them boys to boot. "Isn't it crazy?" I was asked. 

I grinned with sudden understanding. "Well yeah. It is a crazy life. But it's a CALM crazy."

And it really does make all the difference in the world.


Hi!  My name is Amanda and this is my blog.  It's not a mommy blog, although there's a lot of stuff about being a mom in here.  It's not a weight loss blog, although I will for sure be covering that too!  Nor is it a travel, military, photo, cooking, or craft blog...it's just my little corner of the internet.  Or interwebs.  Or whatever "they" are calling it these days.

What's the point of a blog without just one, well, point, you might ask.  I like to read blogs to get a feel for the lives of others.  Some of those "others" in question run lives similar to mine.  It's nice to see that I'm not the only one going through some of the stresses of being a military spouse and mom.  I'd like to think that I can be that same thing for others.  That other women can read about my thoughts and feelings and feel as though there is someone else out there just like them.  

I also love to read about those whose lives are completely different from mine.  Those blogs are a window, if you will, into another path through life.  To that end, I hope that my blog can be a window into my life for others.  I think it is important that we all try to have an understanding for each other, even (or maybe especially) for those with whom we seem to have no common ground.  I would love to think that something I write could help someone else see something from my point of view--even if they still don't agree with me.

Begin challenging your own assumptions.  Your assumptions are your windows on the world.  Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in.  ~Alan Alda
