Meal Planning Makes Cooking Possible

We still have a lot of setting up to do in the kitchen and some key furniture pieces to get to really have a functioning space. There just isn’t really anywhere to keep our dry foods and flatware and cups in the actual kitchen. We knew it was small, and I’m really enjoying a smallerContinue reading “Meal Planning Makes Cooking Possible”

Family Bonding and the Soothing Magic of Puzzles

I don’t really seem to have much to say these days. I’ve picked up more hours at work to try to make ends meet while my husband is still looking for work. That’s been keeping me busy and I’m actually enjoying it more than I thought I would. I love what I do, but itContinue reading “Family Bonding and the Soothing Magic of Puzzles”

Presenting, Our Yard

It’s finally done. Well, mostly. As you can see we still have some grass piles to clean up and some edging to do. The garden beds definitely need weeding, but we’re getting there. We had about three weeks of slowly moving stuff in with no time to manage the yard. Then finding time between boutsContinue reading “Presenting, Our Yard”

Lately it’s been my mood getting in the way, but I’m coming out of the muck and getting things done. This book was aContinue reading “Book Review Time”

More Stormy Weather

Still no real news on the job front, but more tough stuff has arrived. Our oldest just got suspended for the rest of the school year. There may be charges, but we’re hopeful they see the struggle she’s in and take her young age and clean record into account. I need to schedule her someContinue reading “More Stormy Weather”

Finding the Tweezers

I packed the tweezers two weeks ago. By some magic of genetics, I inherited the excessive hair gene. I have nothing against body hair in general, but the chin whiskers, overgrown eyebrows, and stray lip hairs are starting to bother me every time I touch my face. Boxes are everywhere and finding things is aContinue reading “Finding the Tweezers”

The Mess of Moving

This corner has been seeing a rotating variation of boxes and totes as I fill them up and then transfer them over to the new house. This particular stack has most of our holiday decorations. That’s one more closet empty. As areas of the apartment become emptied of their important items, what remains are theContinue reading “The Mess of Moving”

A Day of Rest is a Day of Knitting

We had big plans for moving more stuff over to the house today. I even woke up at 7 feeling pretty good about the day. Sunday’s are one of the only days our kids get to really play video games or use my tablet to play games. This morning was like any other Sunday morning,Continue reading “A Day of Rest is a Day of Knitting”
