The Accidental Domestic Goddess
I swear I sat down every night ready to write a post, but it all just felt jumbled and forced. Life just kept coming at me faster and faster and I had no time to sort anything out. I did my workouts, I went to work, I cooked meals, I cleaned, I drove everyone toContinue reading “Well, That Was an Adventure”
I’m going to do it. I’m going to get back on track and start doing the things I need to do to take care of myself so I can be here, fully, for my crazy family. My body has been begging for so long it has entered into an aggressive strike against my ‘hibernate untilContinue reading “Bringing my Goddess Back”
What do you do when you have a bunch of ripe avocados and you’re the only person who really eats them in the house? I have one a day. While waiting for the girls and their dad to get home, I made myself a snack. I mixed up some chicken salad and topped it offContinue reading “A Bunch of Ripe Avocados”
This evening was a nice relaxing finish to a busy day. Our dentist called and could fit our middle one in today. So off we went and my daughter was amazing. She’s usually really anxious, but was fantastic through it all. Then home again to switch off kids with my husband so he could runContinue reading “Feel Good Dinner”
I went to the bookstore when I should not be buying books, but I had been left in such a fog after The Sun is Not the Only Star that I had to find something epic to follow it. After wandering among the shelves and picking up this book and that one, only to putContinue reading “The Three I’m Reading”
Ugh!!!! I’m so frustrated. It feels like every time I go to mow the lawn, something happens to the dang mower or me. One time I forgot how to do the choke and my husband’s explanation over the phone was no help. Another time I got smoke coming from the engine. It was just oilContinue reading “Fighting With the Lawnmower”
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”
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”
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”
I’m writing this from my phone because I’m letting our youngest play games while I rest a bit. It’s been busy. I mean to write a post and then stuff interrupts. 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”
