Ahh that's awesome! Because yes they always ask "What's for dinner!?" I only plan dinners, not enough time or energy to plan out every single meal! Hahaha!!

I hate to do this because it honestly makes me feel terribly guilty, however, with 3 craft fairs on the horizon I need to focus on getting my work done & not replying to messages which are "needs & wants" from others. My sewing isn't a "hobby", it's a real... Continue reading

I am insanely & crazy busy over the next couple of months, and to be quite honest, it's all I can do to keep my own head above water some days. I have a life that doesn't allow me to be at everyone's beck & call. So please don't take... Continue reading

Today was one of those days where I didn’t feel like I was “enough”. Not as a wife, as a mother, as anything really... I don’t know why, but it just was. I hate days like this, and I’m determined to end it on a good note, so I’ll post... Continue reading

Hope things are going well with your FT position this month! Definitely switch out your jewelry, better than buying clothes you don't need or won't wear much!

I was afraid they'd butcher poor Beatrix Potters books... :(

Those movies are always great & fast moving! We usually opt to stay in as well, but once in a while I get cabin fever and need to get out! LOL! I snuck in grapes for my snack this time... LOL!!

Haven't seen hardly any movies it seems, but I do *REALLY* want to see the Shape of Water. I think it did well at the award ceremonies...

*** My cats woke me up at 5:30 this morning, so once again, I had a lovely make 4 1/2 hours of sleep? I should probably just accept, and make peace with the fact that I will never again actually get a good, full nights rest. It's cold, again, sitting... Continue reading
