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

FRIDAY! I love Fridays. The whole weekend home with all my loves. I love Saturdays even more. Wanna know why?? GARAGE SALES! Yup, we are one of those families that try to hit up garage sales every weekend. Sadly our state is not one where we are allotted mild weather all year-long. So once May hits and those garage sale ads start hitting Facebook and the newspaper I’m just itching to go.  Read more

Well yesterday kicked off the first real week of summer vacation. It also kicked off me starting my summer daycare. Luckily as of yesterday all of our yard work is complete and the hazard area should hopefully be completely eliminated. Do you know what its like to have to make sure your kids don’t go in certain areas in your yard because of work being done? Especially when you are trying to do daycare, yeah it sucks.  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
