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.…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

Hal hates history class—it literally bores him to tears. But his father is a big history buff, and unless Hal gets a good grade this year, he’ll never get his own room. Sixth grade gets off to a horrible start when history teacher Mr. Tupkin gives the class an assignment to write journals that will be buried in a time capsule at the end of the year. Things get even…

Sanskrit meaning ‘cultured’ or ‘refined’ is believed to be the oldest and most systematic language in the world. The vastness and versatility of this Indian classical language can be endorsed by the fact that the various forms of earth can be described in as many as 65 words, water in 67 words and rainfall in over 250 words. Most ancient literary, religious, or philosophical documents of the Indian…Continue

Allergy season is here again, though for some it never left. Both my kids have horrible seasonal allergies. I guess they inherited it from me and my husband, but mostly from me. All day today I've been dealing with a major headache despite taking my Allegra. The allergies just drain you and hit hardest at the beginning…Continue
