A foggy mess

That's what my brain feels like a good portion of my day -- just a foggy mess! It all started when I was about 10 weeks pregnant with the little one, and my mommy friends gently informed me that it was "Pregnancy Brain." That made me feel relieved and even slightly thrilled to have a "legitimate" excuse for almost anything. But I do have a problem...Pregnancy Brain seems to have lingered and morphed into "Mommy Brain" -- my friends did not forewarn me about this. And to top it off, I tend to think too much about almost everything, so even simple decisions can take up too much of my brain space and time.

All that to say, the fog has lifted every-so-slightly, and I need to thank Mom In Training and Tiffany@Wyatt Family Farm for giving me blog awards (and being patient as I'm foggy-brained -- I have only myself to blame for this!).

The Rules
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass this on to 12 other great bloggers you recently discovered
4. Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their awards

Here we go! Seven things about me...
  1. My faith and family brings me joy.
  2. I love my MOPS group and BSF.
  3. I get a kick out of seeing my percentage of savings at the bottom of grocery receipts -- the greater the savings, the greater my delight.
  4. Even though I now receive no salary, I'm finding more ways to give.
  5. I'm more thoughtful about healthy living and well-being -- and I'm excited to share more about this in the coming days!
  6. I like to search for all kinds of information online.
  7. I like reading with my little one!
12 Blogs That You Should Visit, You Won't Be Disappointed:


  1. Congrats on your awards!

    The fog I have heard is because as a mum we are conditioned to think of our little one first which leaves us little room to digest other information.

    I still have it now and my eldest is 16 and youngest is 3! Which is where I get the Dizzy in DizzyC from!


  2. CONGRATS. :) Good luck with the fog. *HUGS*

  3. Thanks for the award!! I love seeing these! I am amidst a HUGE remodeling project in my house (I'm not even supposed to be online!!) but I wanted to say a big thanks to you! :)
