The summer holidays are here.

It is now officially the start of the kids 6 week holidays! SIX long weeks, wow. What on earth can we do for six weeks? 

My middle child, Lewis has severe tonsilitis which he is suffering badly with so all he really wants to do is xuddle, sleep and cry. So thats me on full nurse duties already.

My eldest, Riley is 6 and all he wants to do is play games consoles, go crazy in the park or wind everyone up for not gerting what he wants.

My little princess, my smallest baby,…

Are You and Your Partner On the Same Financial Page?

Let’s face it, relationships are tough.  They require constant attention, great communication, and massive compromise.  And while the old adage of ‘opposites attract’ may make for an exciting, passionate relationship…it can also be the downfall of your financial dreams.  When committing to a major goal, like early retirement, it is crucial that you and your partner are on the same money page.

Frugality can be hard in our society, but add an uncooperative spouse into the mix, and it…

dear self

Hey girl what up!!! Do you remember yesterday when you stepped out of your car and walked onto a broom brush and the pole came and popped you in the ear? see I feel you practiced very good self control when you had the urge to kill your 8 year old from her belly laughing so hard.

Although you restrained yourself from that you didn't do so hot last night with your night…

The 5 Miseries of Commuting Pregnant

My days are long, and they aren't just spent in the office - about 4 hours of it is spent getting to where I have to go.  Which can be draining for the average human, let alone a pregnant woman.  There are so many things that make it a hassle - but being pregnant adds quite a few more issues to the list.

My mother

My emotions have been running rapid like a person who is a chicken and has its head cut off. (I've heard they run like super crazy and that's me)

This whole experience has scared the ever-living crap out of me.

My mother has not stepped foot in a hospital…

Cheap Board Games for Kids

Cheap Board Games for Kids

One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby. The plan was to find me a good book…

Danger of Fruits and Vegetables

Benefits and harms of fruits and vegetables sometimes are very close concepts. For example, let’s consider the apricot. If it will be eaten before a meal, it will digest hard and can cause indigestion. And if you eat apricots in 15-20 minutes after the main meal, the digestion will be easy and without difficulties.

Freshly picked grapes contain a lot of sugar and causes fermentation in the bowels. Therefore, it is recommended to eat grapes, not earlier than in 2 days…

According to our school calendar, we are solidly over the half-way mark for summer and this week, I started to feel the effects of trying to work from home while my kids are all basically home (with the exception of a few camps).

Vacations ≠ Work-Life Balance

As some of you already know, I recently returned from a “vacation” with my children and mother in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PV).  What a blessing to be able to do this and please know that I didn’t take one second of it for granted.
