Party Big or Stay Home

I don't mind big event celebrations. They can be fun and exciting. Experiences to remember. But I also like small celebrations too. Things done with just the people you love or care about. Those are just as important. The rest of my family is split. Two are like me and like going to the events... Continue Reading →

Mommy It Hurts

I've been wanting to write this for a week now. Almost to the day. On this day a week ago my son's beloved hamster died. He found the furry little guy in his cage already gone when he went to take him out to play. Ham Diggity was 2 1/2, which is a pretty good... Continue Reading →

Cleaning Up

I have some OCD tendencies.  I'll admit it.  I like things a certain way and it drives me mad when they aren't that way.  In fact I tend to hit a bit of a depression when I am overwhelmed by a messy and disorganized house, which was often the case when I would come home... Continue Reading →

My Boys

In some ways I think my boys are more demanding of my attention than my daughter.   My boys are very sweet little guys. At nine years old they are far more kind and caring than I could have hoped for. They don't wrestle with each other or hit. They adore their sister and idolize their... Continue Reading →

Join Them!

Video games are more popular than even and you'd be hard pressed to find a kid out there who hasn't played one. There's a lot of controversy and debate over the worth and problems that arise from our children being raised in a technical world, but honestly I believe it's like anything else, moderation is...

Winds of Change

I had a dream. Well truthfully I've had many many dreams, but let's start with this one; home ownership.  I had a dream to own my own home and just shy of two years ago we made this dream come true when we bought our little house. It was very very run down and in... Continue Reading →

Good or Poor Sport?

I'm an only child.  Growing up I had friends to play with and my mom always instilled in my the importance of sharing and playing fair.  We didn't have video games and hardly watched TV, so we played a lot of games. I can remember playing with my grandparents and how much I loved it.... Continue Reading →
