Tonight as I put my 3 year old to bed, I realized that I do not have to rock him to sleep anymore. How did that happen smoothly?! As I finished my little happy dance, I was overcome with a bitter sweet…

Johnathan is five months old now and we have just successfully completed the transition into baby food. We were so excited to begin this next milestone a few weeks ago and ran into a bit of trouble at first. We went to an organic grocery store and purchased apples, pears, sweet potato, bananas and Karo syrup for some sweetness. We came home and began preparing....only to find out baby Johnathan was not as excited as we were. After a talk with his Dr., he recommended we try… Continue

Last week, Lexi had an assignment which required a poster-board. Actually, it didn’t require a poster-board, notepad paper would have worked too, but it seems like the new generation of teachers prefer everything from a haiku to a spelling assignment completed on poster-board.

‘Tis the season for vendor events. I went to a couple of craft shows
this weekend. It’s always good to keep up on what the competition is
doing; plus I might see some treasures I have to have. Some of the
vendors stated that things were “a little slow” (translate: they weren’t
selling much of anything). Sure we can blame the economy and I will
acknowledge that may have some bearing on it, but I venture to
guess that those most… Continue

I've been struggling with this quitting smoking thing for a few months now. I'll do really good one week, just to completely fall off the wagon the next. I'm at the point where I'll try just about anything.

After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to
give it a try - again.

If you ask your spouse to do something and it's not done yet, do it yourself. It's not worth the time and energy complaining or nagging to get the job done. Not doing the job because of the "principle of the thing" is a great way to put a crack in the bedrock of your marriage. This doesn't mean you have to be a doormat - just don't spend your time and energy on negative feelings, like stress or frustration that something isn't done. If you can't do it yourself without whining and… Continue

I have the desire to clean up my life.
My house. My car. My bills. My self.
I want to finish the laundry and get it all put away. Lysol every toy and surface in this house. Open the windows and let mother nature show Febreze how it is done. I want to mop the floors, clean the toilets, scrub the showers and tubs, and wash the windows.
I want to steam clean the carpets, reorganize the cabinets, dust the cobwebs out of the corners. I want to wash the area rugs and… Continue

My kid asked me the other day “Mom, Sara’s mom says that being organized
is a trait that passes through generations genetically. Are you
organized?” Fortunately, I didn’t have to think long on that question.
Quoting Grandma and myself as exemplary examples, I assured her that
these things are known to miss a couple of generations.
