MOMMA’S BACK!

After what feels like an eternity of not writing I’m finally back! Whew! Did you miss me?! I missed all of you! It’s after midnight on a Thursday and I’m exhausted and surrounded by art supplies while my Husband and the dogs snore. I’ve been working hard on my submission for The Sketchbook Project. BackContinue reading “MOMMA’S BACK!”

Good News!

It’s been too long since I’ve written. Life seems to be going 1000 miles an hour lately and there never seems to be enough time in the day. It’s not bad busy. It’s actually pretty exciting. I’ve been trying new recipes, making kits and lots of soap, and trying to make my house look lessContinue reading “Good News!”

Sausage and Mustard Green Soup

I found some awesome mustard greens at the farmer’s market the other day and bought them on impulse. It was a great idea until I realized that I had no idea what to do with them. After realizing I didn’t have the ingredients for a traditional batch of greens, I found a great recipe onlineContinue reading “Sausage and Mustard Green Soup”

Self Quarantine Day 68: Be Brave

It’s been too long since I’ve blogged but I’ve had a lot on my mind and my plate. I wanted to share some of my current journey with you though. I am a firm believer that all life has value and a greater place in the divine plan. That “The Universe”, God, quantum physics, whateverContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 68: Be Brave”

Self Quarantine Day 31: Reset

Tonight I am doing nothing. Well, not quite nothing. I’m obviously allowing myself to blog but I’ve set a timer. Fifteen minutes is all I get. Then it’s reset time. I’ve been working non-stop for days. I wake up and clock in. I work for 8 hours, sometimes more. All while juggling the needs ofContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 31: Reset”

Self Quarantine Day 27: Easter Done Differently

Here goes Rona, making life strange again. This Easter is the most odd one that I’ve ever had. I’d even go so far as to say the weirdest Easter most of us have had. This morning I watched Mass via Facebook. The Hubs was happy because he didn’t have to get dressed up and go.Continue reading “Self Quarantine Day 27: Easter Done Differently”

Self Quarantine Log Day 26: Washing Away Stress

Being a working Mom takes up almost every waking moment. If I’m not at work I’m thinking about work. If I’m not at work or thinking about work I’m taking care of my kids or thinking about them. Sometimes I’m doing it all at once. Working from home since the quarantine started has largely eliminatedContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 26: Washing Away Stress”

Self Quarantine Day 12: Escape

The Hubs and I ventured out today. We’re trying to do as little of this as possible but his project to fix the drainage in the yard has gotten out of hand and we needed groceries. His Mom watched the kids for us so that we wouldn’t expose them to anyone else. Between The BoyContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 12: Escape”

Finger Painting

I got a wild idea Saturday to paint with The Conqueror and The Hun. The idea was made even wilder by the fact that we were also trying to do the 48 hour potty training method where you let them run around without pants all day. If you’re already cleaning up pee on the floorContinue reading “Finger Painting”

Learning from My Son

Sunday was “date” day in our house. I don’t mean romantic date though. I mean special time with the big kids. We split up and each take a kid to do something together. Sometimes we have to bring The Twins along but whatever we do, we make sure the focus is on whichever kiddo isContinue reading “Learning from My Son”
