Hi there! I missed you all last week. I was just way too busy! Hopefully things will be a tad calmer this week. Thanksgiving was very nice. It was great to spend time with family. Not a lot of family made it to dinner this year. We still had a ton of food - turkey,… Continue reading Happy Monday
Happy Monday! It was so cold this weekend! Saturday was in the 40's but with the wind blowing it felt like it was mid 30's. Saturday night the temperatures dropped down into the lower 20's. That is crazy for us here this time of year! It's normally in the 50's or lower 60's. I found… Continue reading Weekend Happenings
It's finally Halloween and I'm a little glad to see it come and go. My daughter is 11 this year and she's at that weird in-between age where she's too young for certain things and too old for certain things. She wanted to go trick-or-treating, so we will, but she's just not as excited about… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Recently my family and I were shopping when something on the other side of the aisle caught my eleven-year old daughter's eye. She rushed over to look at it and rushed back to tell me what it was. While on her way back she walked right in front of a lady who had to stop… Continue reading Excuse Me
Going to the grocery store is not exactly my favorite thing to do. Groceries are so expensive! I look for ways to save constantly. Since I am a stay-at-home homeschooling mom, I really have to stick to the budget. One of the ways I save money on groceries is by making a weekly menu. I… Continue reading Grocery Shopping on a Budget
I discovered an online dollar store a while back and decided to give it a try. I placed an order and waited. And waited. And waited. I was so disappointed that shipping was taking so long! Until I realized that it had been shipped. And delivered. To the wrong house! Our regular mailman retired and… Continue reading My Favorite Dollar Store
Our first week of Homeschool has been a huge success! I'm so glad I decided to take this path. Day one was a little bit crazy, which is normal for any school day. It started off with me burning the bacon. Thankfully I had more bacon. We started our school day and halfway… Continue reading Homeschool Week 1
I have mixed feelings today as many in my county start school today. (Yes already!) We have chosen to start homeschooling our daughter this year. She will be in sixth grade and while I look at the many pictures of her friends being shared all over Facebook, I'm not sure how I feel about it.… Continue reading Back to School!
Another holiday for us Americans has come and gone. I cannot believe we are already half-way through 2018! Where does the time go? We spent the last two days celebrating America's birthday. Tuesday night our local high school had a 4th of July event which included concerts, vendors, food, games, and raffles. It's usually way… Continue reading July 4th
This past week has been hot!! We had a few thunderstorms come through last night, which cooled things down tremendously, thank goodness. I do not like the heat and humidity at all. Mostly because when the humidity is high my hair starts looking like Monica hair (remember that episode of Friends?)! Last week… Continue reading Ahhh, Summer
