A hearty home day

Today is what I would call a hearty home day. As most poeple know the weather in Western Washington in the winter time tends to be very grey and depressing, as such every once in a while its nice to do something to brighten the internal mood. So today my husband and I are tag teaming a hearty late breakfast for our crew (2 are still asleep), followed a few hours later by a hearty dinner. For dinner I am putting the leftover turkey to good use in a turkey noodle soup and making homemade…

Flying by

I know it’s been awhile but my life currently seems to be moving at the speed of light and I’m just standing in the way (or playing taxi – whichever is more convenient at the time). Since my last post I have successfully registered for my winter quarter classes, gotten approved for another funding source for school, applied for yet another one, gone to a great Special Olympics soccer tournament, attended my first high school wrestling meet and welcomed a new addition (and hopefully last) to…

Ultimate test of sickness

As everyone knows I'm sick. Unable to find a doctor I went for the best get well soon remedy I know. A jar of peppers. A quarter of a jar later I'm not feeling so bad. My throat is still irratated but no where near as sore as it was yesterday. I can breathe which is ALWAYS a good things so now on to more non sick activities. In just a bit I'm venturing out to get the super best in get well yourself, a coloring book. Yes, a coloring book. Having a good coloring book on hand is no different…

Bah Humbug

Today I find myself very angry. I've been dealing with this sickness of mine for a week or so now, it's annoying but I've been dealing today not so much. This morning I woke up to discover I was blazing hot and my throat felt like someone stuck a hot poker down it. It hurts to talk, it hurts to swallow, it hurts to do this stupid annoying cough I have and the best part is because I currently have no medical insurance I'm having a hard time finding a doctor who will see me. I'm in a very…

All that glitters

Is NOT a Cullen. Today was a beautiful wet day here in western Washington. While out running errands I started down a hill leading to a beach, on my decent I noticed that it was only cloudy and grey on this side of the Sound. My first thought? Its to cloudy for the Cullens to be out at least not in Forks. Later on my way home I noticed a shinny silver mercades weaving in and out of traffic as the car got closer to me it took off like a shot. My thought? All that glitters isn't a Cullen. Just…

This Mommys Stuff I can't do without (Winter Edition)

There are a lot of things I could write about or not as the case may be but I think with so many of my friends and family having babies here lately I should add my list of things we can't do without (having little people in the house) so here we go:

1) Outlet covers

2) Clean floors

3) Boogie wipes -these things are GREAT!!!!!! Gets all the nasty yuck, smells good and doesn't take the babys face off in the process

4) 2 diaper bags one that stays in the car one for taking…

Talk about diversity

Children never cease to amaze me.....for example, my oldest who is a freshman in high school has made a new best friend this year. The young man that my son has befriended is also in the D/HH program (this young man falls the HH category where as my son is in the D - that's Deaf/Hard of Hearing for those who don't know), he's a basketball player, an online zombie slayer and he also happens to be from the Middle East. My son is pretty much the only friend that this young guy has at their school.… Continue

I just had to laugh

For those of you who know my children you know that they can be VERY entertaining (then again most children are) especially SteveSteve. He's just a natural entertainer last night was no exception. I was dancing around the kitchen while cooking dinner and using my children as musical instruments and dance partners as these things go. SteveSteve who was my chosen guitar decided he had enough of this and decided that he was going to climb the fridge to get to the cream soda on the top. Yes I wrote… Continue

Community Property

For 11 years now my husband and I have made our room and our bed community property, we have seen many household wrestling events, fun times, birthday gifts, heartbreaks, and a whole host of other things in our "community" room. When I was growing up my families community room was the kitchen, not the diningroom or livingroom but the kitchen (for family gatherings it's still the place to be if you want in on the action lol) but here, in my home, it's our room.

For our children it…

Sitting Still

We've all heard it before - sometimes it's better to just be still. For me that has taken on all new meaning. I had full range of mobility just half an hour ago and then I stretched my arms above my head and now it is EXTREMELY painful to move my head, neck, arms or take a deep breath. What I could have possibly done to myself I have no clue but I do know this, I can only sit in one place and that is perfectly still. It's a hard thing to handle being sidelined especially if you get blindsided… Continue

Nothing special

It's been a busy 2 week (about) since my last blog. I have two sick little ones, the youngest one had his 2nd birthday, hubby had foot issues (to bad that wasn't the only problem), the teen is being a teen and the tween is being, yup a tween. It's been a busy, stressful time for me. Still first up last to bed and totally busy inbetween. This lack of sleep that I have is turning into an issue it's beginning to affect every part of me but yet I am expected to smile and act as if everything is… Continue

The fast approach

We are fast approaching my favorite time of year. I love holiday season, not that we do anything extra ordinary it's just the time of year and what it means. Caring, sharing, giving but more importantly for me at least it's the way it smells. I LOVE the smell of things baking (especially sweets) even if it's an artificial smell such as the pumpkin spice candles I always purchase around this time of year. I like the smell of wet leaves and snow. I like the smell of a fresh ceder fire burning…

My take on this

I took a small break for my birthday and then I got super busy. My husband surprised me with a 4 legged little girl so I've been busy getting her house trained, entertained and teaching her the general rules of the house as they apply to new 4 legged additions. My 10 year old has gotten super sick and I'm back to being super sleep deprived but I've had lots of time to think. Being a stay at home mom isn't for everyone. My home in it's current state won't be featured in a housing magazine, there… Continue

Something Special

I have been so richly blessed in my life that at times I take the blessings for granted. I figure because it's something I have done or experienced that it's been the same for everyone. Now I'm not saying that I've had what some would consider major blessings like I've never won the mega millions or anything like that but the things that I need are always supplied and most of the things that I want I've gotten those things too (maybe not when I was throwing a fit to get them but at some…
