Life can be hectic and finding balance between work, children and home can sometimes feel impossible. I believe that life is like a fairground ride. Some people are riding a roller coaster with extreme highs and extreme lows, but all that motion can leave you sick and dizzy. Other people are on a slow boat ride, still enjoying themselves but not appearing to get anywhere very fast.
I strive to live my life like a carousel. Finding the balance between the highs and the lows, while enjoying the beauty all around me.
Finding the way to a balanced life is not always easy though.
Who am I?
Hi, I’m Sasha, mom to 3 children. I work (more than) full time as a Math teacher at a drop-out prevention high school. I have a wonderfully supportive partner, who has stepped up to the role of “Step-Dad” very well!
This website has become my passion that fills the majority of my free time (free time? What’s that?!). When not being mom, blogger or teacher, I love spending time with my pets.
I have 3 dogs and 4 cats. Animals have always been an important part of my life. At one time I had a small farm (a homestead) with 35+ animals and pets – each with their own name and personality! I’ve owned cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, parrots, chickens, cows, donkeys, ducks, pigs…. the list goes on!
I’ve had quite a diverse life. I was born and raised in England, about one hour outside of London. I moved to the USA (Florida) with my husband (now ex-husband!) when I was 22 years old. I’ve run my own businesses, been a stay-at-home mom (with a farm!), a single working mom on a very tight budget and now I’m a teacher. I’ve learned a lot over the years and know I will keep learning throughout my whole life.
Sometimes it feels like the world is moving too fast and I will never catch up. Other times it feels like things are moving too slowly and never likely to change.
The purpose of this blog is to chart the progress from a hectic to a balanced life.
