Unthankful. 

Dose of honest this morning.  This morning I woke up anything but grateful…. Story, my six year old, had tried to nudge me out of bed for about an hour before I got up. I’m out of coffee and had to use the k cup thing and I like my coffee pot better. I checked…

Hei Hei the Plastic Chicken and the Fear of Death

Last night Story, my six year old,  had a little plastic chicken from the movie Moana in her mouth. (If you don’t have kids the chickens name is Hei Hei and he’s a character in the movie. Pronounced “Hey hey” and honestly this story just gets weirder so if that’s too much just stop there)….

A Giving Heart

Sunday morning I made the mistake of mentioning a haircut to my five year old. She decided to grow out her hair about two years ago and it’s past her shoulder blades. She wants, “Rapunzel hair”. Nevermind that Rapunzel is portrayed as taking care of that long mane without tears and there was never a…

Mommas Day

I started this tradition of buying my own Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and birthday gifts years ago. Just one gift for myself For each day that I knew would not disappoint. My husband has forgotten 1/3 of my birthdays since we have been together and to be honest he either does amazing with gifts or…

Easter Story 

Spring has hit our family like a sack of quarters in a tube sock.  Yard work begins, allergy season also begins, our children were gifted a trampoline which means loads of energy is extruded, the days have gotten longer and our kids are taking every advantage to use that time well. We are all tired…

Momma said there’d be days like this…

Last year the leather sectional couch we had insurance on was paid off and we had it inspected because it had a warranty and it was falling apart. We were told in March of 2016 it would be replaced. A big name brand couch that we paid a huge amount of money for was falling…

Life Gets in the Way

All day long I write things in my head.  I wake up. I slide out of bed before my alarm sounds. I make coffee. I get the older two kids up and make sure they are ready for school. After they leave I workout on gym days or enjoy the silence in my home. Somedays…

The Facebook Rules. 

I started a faux social media account years ago for reasons I won’t discuss here.  To be honest I found it fun but kind of silly. I wanted to scream at people, YOUR HUSBAND IS IN THE ROOM. TELL HIM YOU LOVE HIM NOT ALL OF FACEBOOK. I made a vow to never do a…

Bad Kitty 

When your oldest, rattiest, sickest, ugliest cat dies and you have (had) five cats the following happens: David, the husband- MIA as he is almost every single day that is golf worthy. I’m Wonder Woman and I deal with this. I sent him a text. He shows up four hours later and asks if he…

Life is Messy

The other day I forgot my wordpress password and did the whole forgotten password dance we all do. Lets face it, I do that dance very single time I log in anywhere ever and the only reason I let any website stay open on my iPad or computer is so I won’t have to remember…

Someone needs to teach me how to after Christmas.  I get in a mood to take down my tree the day after. It takes me a couple hours of packing each ornament into a box labeled with each kids name. We have found this is the easiest way to do this and although it’s time…
