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…

Hangin' With Miss Frizzle & the Magic Schoolbus at Impression 5

I was pretty darned excited when I heard that The Magic Schoolbus exhibit was at the Impression 5 science museum for kids in Lansing, Michigan.



My children grew up with Miss Frizzle and her insanely over-the-top field trip adventures into the curious and mysterious world of science.



We packed into my Magic Yukon and departed for the capital of Michigan, with (as my…

Never Too Old for the Playground

After the nutty shaving cream fight on Saturday, Sunday was not measuring up on the fun scale.



I really didn't have anything planned but my kids' half sister, Gracie, was getting antsy as all first graders do.



The sun was out so I grabbed my camera and we loaded into the Yukon for a mini field trip to Ithaca's Woodland Park.  They have an updated safer play area towards the back of the park but I still…
