Hello to the weekend! Do you all get those days where you simply don’t want to write anything but just want to share what you have created? Yeah, sometimes inspiration doesn’t strike. Writers block of sorts. More or less just want to bake instead. But I also have creators block.

So the garage sale is finally over. I’m not sure if I want to do that experience again. All I can say is that I’m completely exhausted. I don’t know how people could have one that lasted days and not just one. They must have more motivation that I do. I mean I was very motivated to sell things, now I’m just motivated to get rid of what was left over. Like I said before, clutter and I do not mix. Read more

I have finally came to the conclusion that I do not sleep enough. It has been an issue since I had my first-born 10 years ago. I literally can wake up to the sound of someone touching the door handle. It’s probably the natural motherly thing that happens but dang. I think I’m gonna be like this until they all reach the age of 18 and leave the nest. But knowing me then it will be too quiet and I’ll wake up to the sound of dust bunnies or something. For now, I think I’ll handle what I have.  Read more

You guys, I seriously need to get a ghost writer. Or get a more interesting life. I honestly never know what to write in my blog posts. I live one of those just normal every day lives. nothing real exciting happen to me. Like ever. I don’t have the best of luck so I can’t tell all these stories about winning the lottery or sweepstakes or heck just a drawing! I don’t have a cool high-tech career or am a spy or anything like that. Although, that would be awesome. I’m just your everyday run of the mill girl in her late 20’s! Read more

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Can I say I’m glad it’s over? Ugh, this weekend was nothing but bad luck it seemed for me. Today just didn’t start off on a good note. I went to Aldi to go grocery shopping and lo and behold, my check card is missing. Hmmmm, I wonder where that went to. Needless to say, my husband had to drive 20 miles, through a detour to bring my card since he doesn’t know how to put things back in their rightful place.  Read more

So it’s the first official weekend since school has been out. It honestly doesn’t feel any different. My boy’s are already telling me they are bored by 10:00 am. I have a feeling this is going to be a long summer. Thankfully last year we moved into town from the country! I know a lot of people who would kill to live out in the country, not this gal. Yes, the privacy is nice, and the quietness is awesome, but it’s almost too quiet. I’m the type of girl who likes to go, go, go. Country didn’t suit me well because there never really was anything to see or do. Now with the conveniences of town I have access to other moms, a gas station, a restaurant, a pool and a park. Have you noticed how I used these words in the singular? That’s right, they have one of each of these things. My town = population 800. Read more

OMG it’s almost Friday. I am so ready for the weekend. It’s my kids last day of school today as well. It’s about to get real busy around these parts. Luckily the weather here in Minnesota has finally started to perk up! It was 88 yesterday, so we spend the majority of the day outside. We have a few trees in our yard that are dead and have been in need of being cut down so I had the lovely opportunity to be on medial watch over my dad and his friend while they attempted to cut down our behemoth! Luckily no one was hurt, and the tree came down as expected. Now my yard looks barren and I have to get used to this open space and a nice big tree stump. If anyone has any ideas on how I can dress that eye sore up, let me hear them. Read more

I hope everyone had a relaxing, food filled Memorial Day weekend! I know that I did. And now I can almost guarantee that I’m going to be so lost on what day it is for the rest of the week. Being a stay at home mom I have a hard time keeping track already but throw in a holiday at the beginning of the week where my kids and husband are home and now you just disrupt my whole natural process. I’m sure I can’t be the only one who can say this! Read more
