  I dedicate this post to Bobbie, a blogging mentor, and all my other blogging friends and readers who want to strangle me for my writing errors. I am so thankful to have people who understand that is not simply laziness on my part that cause them. I do have learning disabilities in part due to vaccine […]

A Man Says 90% of Homeschoolers are Losers

Homeschooling_Real_Life

While I can not honestly say that I agree with everything Sandra Dodd says (And what a boring world it would be if we all always agreed) I happen to think there is a point in this cartoon that was worth sharing. There was an article I was reading just yesterday on how schooling and […]

Terrible Twos and Peaceful Parenting Fail

What do you do when your toddler is melting down and nothing seems to work? This was the question that fell on my home late last night, another hard night. My husband and I as of late have had a hard time with our 2.5 year old daughter. She has had hard tantrums ever since […]

When someone you love is dying.

What do you do when someone you love is dying? How do you deal with loss? How as a parent do you help your children deal with it? I wish I knew. Pounding this question late at night in the arms of my husband as he sleeps watching a candle flame dance I am left […]

No Mommy Sick Days!

It is ever more common with our internet societies that mothers are feeling the stress of perfection. So many people simply post the best on facebook, smiling faces, vacations, and of course good news. On blogs we see spotless homes and children in cloths that look like they had never been worn or washed before. […]

Parenting Fail Confession

 Too often blogging mothers online seem to be perfect, creative, organised, patient, and so well put together. Everything is beautiful and unicorn poop does not stink.  We all know though that nothing is so very clean and perfect, perfect would be death of course because nothing changes and grows unless it is challenged. So why […]

NaNoWriMo January Update!

    Sadly like other NaNoWriMo writers, I have left my novel behind. I am very sad about this and want to pick it up again but find it so very hard. My goal was to have something nice to publish mid-year and I am really not sure I am going to be able to […]

Metal Stamping Love

I have always loved seeing hand stamped jewelry on etsy. I didn’t understand though why so much of it was so costly. I understand now though and see them as worth every penny. I spent over $200 on the above kit, with a lot more on silver and things to make gifts. I am simply not […]

Dec 11th — Craft FAIL. Again.

  So we tried making string ornaments a few days ago and it failed. We changed a few supplies and went at it, again. This is what we started with: Simple enough right?  A balloon.  String 1 part white glue, 2 parts water.  Lots of mess.   Hang to dry.  Right?  -sigh-   So me and my 6 […]

October 10th — Fail Fail Fail

So I finally got my laptop back from Geek Squad. If you remember it went in for being 204F degrees. The repair note said heat sink was loose and it was repaired. Great! I turned it on and in three minutes it was up to 210F and threatening to burn my lap. What the heck […]

On the Kid Vacation my oldest daughter was busy trying to help Meme learn to crochet. It seems lots of people wish they could do it and what better time to learn than right now. I think when the wind turns cold we all get a whisper of something telling us to get ready. I […]

Day 157 – I hate cooking…

If you know me, you know I don’t call myself a cook, that I do it less than my husband does, and that my amazing friends cook far better than I do. I can’t even name them all. They inspire me to try harder. I am trying to get back to making bread, many reasons […]

Amateur photo Fail! My intention here was to get a photo of the deer we joke saying that they are trying to ninja kill us near our home. They love the area on post around our house, they also seem to have no fear of cars, however when we slow so I can get a […]

Day 63

365 FAIL DAY! Not all my photos will be listed on the day taken… simply put, reality bites. Much like my stormbaby! Not every day will lend itself to a moment for a photo or two. To make up for this, I will add photos from other days that I think are cute. You can […]
