Still Breathing… A Little Easier, Actually

Posted By on September 22, 2013


Still alive, my friends. Living in Mishawaka where I grew up, near my mother. Chasing my kids around, trying to keep clothes on the three-year-old, running the older ones to and from jobs, trying to keep up with the housework, pay the bills, keep the weight off, eat healthy, mold young minds, hold hearts, and figuring out how to do it all and get a job, now as a single mom.
But most of that hasn’t changed much in 25 years.
Except the jobs. And the married part.

As I said, I’m very much the same, but different.

I haven’t kept my blog up, mainly, because most of my ‘blogging’ is done on FaceBook, because they just make it so much easier, and I don’t have to worry about the stalkers…. too much…. But I hope I am finding time to change that now. So now’s the time to ditch my Feed if you aren’t prepared for the non-religious, feminist, anti-bullshit, home school, healthy, not-trying-to-please-anyone-anymore person that I am. Though I hope if we are friends, we will remain friends.

Happy that life has come full-circle, so to speak, and I can breeeaathe…
Hope you are healthy and well.
Let me know you stopped by.


Namaste, peace and health to you

    Hi Jacque,
    I have followed your blog for years and have rejoiced and wept with u from afar. You & your family have taught me many things. I have been concerned since before ya’ll left Costa Rica. I don’t know what happened between u & Matt, it’s none of my business, but I saddened by the pain endured and the costs. I wanted to explain why I unsubscribed, since we have emailed one another. My family is still walking with YHWH and find your turning from Him deeply troubling. We can see that you & your family have been deeply wounded by the trials you endured. Because I have not been through your journey, I dare not offer my advice. But, i hope my empathy is definitely felt. I am praying Adonai will heal your brokenness and grant you shalom. I hope your children will heal and return to His paths for their lives. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. I will miss your interesting & entertaining blog posts. I miss Jocelyn’s too. Goodbye, my friend.

    Thanks for the thought and the explanation, though it wasn’t necessary. :)

    I never really spoke of me and Matt, keeping much to myself and always trying to be positive, but actually, nothing ‘happened’ between me and Matt. It is as it has been for a very long time.

    I wish you the best in your walk and hope the best for your family!

    HUGS back.

Welcome. I'd like to say that I'm first a 40-ish yr old woman with all of my likes and dislikes, but let's face it, Firstly, I'm a mom to 9 wonderful people, young and old, from ages 23 down to 3. That's my main life: loving, walking with, learning with, teaching, and being driven crazy by my kids and their antics and also being amazed by their capacity to keep loving a person like myself. So, I'm a 40-ish home school mom - teacher of the last 6 of my 9 kids, hoping I don't screw them up too badly, but knowing that they are probably all so awesome they will turn out much better people than I am. For which I am very GRATEFUL. Namaste.
