[Quiet Thoughts] I Swear I Wasn’t Shopping!

Photo: The view out my window yesterday morning… it’s pretty, yes… but… it’s still a pain in the butt! This is a very late post for me… usually I get these posts done during nap time! I’m just now sitting in front of my computer and it’s after dinner! What?? And I know you’re thinking, “welp,…

This Integrated Life

What should I write to you today, dear reader? I was going to write about my menu for tomorrow… maybe speak to the things that I give thanks for. I was going to write, dear reader, about The Husband and his request for Boston Cream Pie and how ridiculous it was… I was going to…

The Gift of 24 Hours

Photo: Sitting in the command seat plottin’ menus and shopping lists and tasks to be done… you know I love that sort of stuff! Tis the season to stay organized!

I Need a Word to Describe my Current Feeling…

Photo: That’s my baby. He’s sitting on a chair, quietly waiting for the big transition before snack time. He helped set up the chairs then he found himself a seat. The first seat, of course. And then he waited.  I love much this child loves school.   These boys… Lord. These two boys… I just…

When You Know That You Should Feel Guilty, But…

Photo: Well look at that! DIY number 3 is in the books! All done! The dining room is put back together, I need to make some freaking curtains, and all we need now is some money to buy an actual table and some actual matching chairs so it looks like real people with class actually…
