Catching Up On The Day To Day At Corntassle Cottage...

I have been so busy these last few days, that I am just now catching up on the day to day, so her I offer a few days worth of ramblings. Last Saturday, my bestie, our girls, and I went out to our local farmer's market to see if we could get any fresh goodies. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, there was not much left, other than some plants and a few Amish Goods. Plants I don't need at this point, but I happily grabbed several different jellies, since the hubby commented when we made our…

A Father's Day Tribute...Of Sorts

I have noticed all of the post's lately about the upcoming Father's day and of course that comes with a Father's day tribute. Father's day, is  really a day that I don't give a whole lot of thought to. Now that is not to say that I don't cook dinner for the hubby, and get him stuff from the kids, and maybe even a card from me. But otherwise, I don't really give it a lot of thought. This will probably be a hard post to write, only because it will be rather matter of fact, so here goes.…

Just Keep Going...

I swear sometimes I totally feel like the Energizer Bunny and I have to just keep going and going and going. LOL! The other night, as the rest of the house was in bed and it was just before one o'clock in the morning, I was sitting here at my computer with my headphones in and the melodic voice of Myles Kennedy blaring in my ears accompanied by either the guys in Alter Bridge or Slash and The Conspirators, finally with a few moments to wind down from the last few days. There is nothing…

Another Dollar Spent

A dollar spent, sure doesn’t mean what it used too. I cannot believe how expensive it is just to grocery shop for a family of five almost six…since Clevis is known to have a meal with us on occasion. But holy cow, another dollar spent is more like another couple of hundred dollars spent. I can remember when $40.00 a week would buy a cart full of groceries, now that won’t get you much. It is funny to watch those extreme coupon shows, and I do, but I for one am just not able to make that…

12 Things To Tell Your Child (reblogged)

Raising children is extremely hard! We moms (and dads) have our work cut out of us. Life with children is not easy, they get in trouble, they make messes, they’re dirty, but they also show us more love than any other person on the planet could. The truth is though, at certain times, we ALL can stand to be better parents. I have comprised a list of important things, I think we should remember to tell our children because we do get busy and even though they know we love them, we don’t always…

Is society controlling your life?

After getting the kiddos situation in the kitchen with an art project this morning I set off for the family room to fold clothes. Exciting I know!  While folding I turned on the TV and quickly found myself being pulled into a talk show. The topic was unconventional marriages.  The host was interviewing a traditional Orthodox Jewish marriage.  First I found it ironic that the topic was unconventional marriages and the couple was in a traditional marriage. My second thought was, when…

Holiday Weekend at Corntassle Cottage...

Well this holiday weekend at Corntassle Cottage was filled with various adventures. Most of the weekend was wrought with storms, and some of them included heavy rain and wind. We even had a few branches blown down onto the neighbor's house. Luckily they were not large enough to cause any real damage, just a scrap on the siding and a dent in the A/C casing, for which I am thoroughly grateful. We even managed to be able to grill out steak's for dinner on Monday evening; there is nothing better…

The Usual Chaos At Corntassle Cottage!

You would think that by now I would be used to the usual chaos at Corntassle Cottage; unfortunately, I am not much of one for chaos...then again I think I could get extremely bored without it! Though I suppose with a hubby and three, well actually four children I can't forget my son from another mother, chaos is a package deal. LOL! Each of them brings their own special brand of chaos into the family. Three of the four males are of course teens, 13, 19, 20, and there are days that they seem…

A Letter From Lil Miss

Well, yesterday I received a letter from Lil Miss, during her Language lesson, as a small bit of bonus work. Now, I did not even know that she was doing so, but we have been trying to work on her handwriting. Also, she has been working on comma's and punctuation in her Language "class". This is the rottenest lil monster and the sweetest lil angel, all wrapped into one, and I love her with all of my heart. The following letter was written and copied almost word for word...the only thing that…

13 Things I Want For You, My Son

Below is something I posted in April 2010, when my son was home from Korea just a year.  I recently came across this again and wanted to share it again today, since it's such a special day for my family.  This was written before my son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD….which makes it a bit more special to me,  knowing what I know now about the challenges he faces. …

10 Fun Family, Budget-Friendly Ideas for Celebrating Valentine's Day at Home!

I love Valentine's Day.  I  love going out.  I love good food.  I love romance.  I love chocolate.  The list goes on...

But sometimes the pressure of finding a babysitter for that one particular night, then heading out to an expensive restaurant only to find it will be a 1 1/2 hour wait time just  to eat, seems like more trouble than it's worth.  Last year, we decided to do something different - celebrate at home - family style!  We still went out, but just chose a different…

Finding the Right Kind of Replacement

     Ever since my autistic son's Orange Tabby Cat (named Orange) went missing three years ago, we have never stopped searching. We went to the shelter the other day think we had finally found him, but alas it was not him. We did see a lot of orange cats that looked a lot like the one that went missing ( we still suspect fowl play from the shady neighbor we had been living across the street from). I think my…

A Conversation with Children's Author Beverly Stowe McClure

When Beverly was a child she hated to read. Even though her eighth-grade teacher sent her poem “Stars” to a high school anthology and it was published in Young America Sings she hated to write. In spite of her rocky relationship with books, she managed to graduate from high school then attended Midwestern State…

Moving Forward By Backing Up

My laptop is on the fritz.  I am prepping myself for the day (probably soon) when I go to turn it on and it goes "poof".  Now I know there is probably some sort of technical fix to retrieve all my personal and business information but frankly hunting down a laptop will take all the extra energy and time I…

The Social Media Time Vacuum

I am totally guilty of getting sucked into Twitter.  And Facebook.  And now Pinterest.  It doesn't help that as a small business owner with a limited advertising budget, social media is a great way to meet new clients and advertise.  I may say I go on for my business, but I know I stay for the pleasure of social…

No Children Allowed, AKA THE BRAT BAN?!

I'm so rarely ahead of the curve however just last week some 28 yo friend of my youngest sister was hollering at me on Facebook about "my alleged parental indignation" over not being ALLOWED to take my kids to see a Harry Potter movie, at ten in the morning on a summer's day. My sister had gone to a movie theatre that had a bar and reserved seating and was gushing about drinking cocktails at ten am while watching Harry Potter with nary a kid in sight. Her friend chirped in, "I hate kids and…
