FOCUS : Word of the Year 2018

The time of year is upon me when I need to choose my “word of the year“. I’ve been doing it for a few years, and the one year it worked well for me was when I chose “happy”. I almost went with it again for 2018, but instead I chose “FOCUS“.

I’m excited for this year!

My main direction for “FOCUS” will be the second definition. directed attention. I think it’s going to be a good year. I’m ready for something big and new to happen. I know that I am going to have to make it happen, but I am ready to FOCUS on me, on life, on all the things!

Goals for 2018:


  • Focus and finish a fitness program
  • Drink me some Shakeology
  • Get back to the Gym


  • Make memories
  • Share love
  • Be present


  • Write the novel I originally started planning for November
  • Win NaNoWriMo 2018

Have you chosen a word? How are you going to use it to help you set your goals for 2018?

Scare of my life

My heart is still racing, even though who it happened with is calm as a cucumber.

What happened? My son almost literally passed out. He held his breath so much that he couldn’t get it back. His eyes started to roll back in his head and his mouth was starting to foam. He literally scared the bejeezus out of me. He scared himself though too. I could see the terror in his eyes when he couldn’t stand, and when he realized he couldn’t take a breath.

This was the result of a fit. I wasn’t getting him what he wanted when he wanted. Anyone ever experience that with their kids, and have any advice on how to either stop the holding of the breath, or something? Ethan’s three, if that makes a difference. My brother did the same, but man, that’s scary crap!!
