Autumn and Harry Potter

One of my husband’s favorite things to do as Autumn really starts to set in is watch all the Harry Potter movies. We have been making our way through them with the girls the past two weeks. Since we have given our kids such an early bedtime (because it takes them forever to settle forContinue reading “Autumn and Harry Potter”

Sometimes You Can’t Keep the Peace

I was hoping to make a bit more progress than this today. The finished mitt is the rough draft I made a couple days ago. The unfinished one only needed a few more rows. Sadly, my mother-in-law took up most of my energy this morning. We have been having an increasingly strained relationship over theContinue reading “Sometimes You Can’t Keep the Peace”

Well, That Was an Adventure

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”

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”
