Cooking Chicken

Alright so this is embarrassing as hell but I’m almost thirty and have never cooked a whole chicken before tonight. I hate raw meat and the idea of handling a whole raw chicken seemed gross and unnecessary for any recipe that looked appealing to me. Also, whole chicken takes longer to cook than I canContinue reading “Cooking Chicken”

Hindsight In 2020

Well, my life as a housewife was blessedly and painfully short lived. Haha! While I did enjoy getting a lot done around the house and watching TV and relaxing, my bank account wasn’t pleased with the new arrangement. I’m pretty sure I was getting on my Husband’s nerves too. By the grace of God aContinue reading “Hindsight In 2020”

Unemployment Day 1: Housewife

I’ve decided to give myself a couple days to breathe and take care of some stuff around the house. On Monday the job application festivities begin. Before then I’ve got a big soap order to make and I’ll be cleaning the house some too. Oh and we may get hit by a hurricane. I didn’tContinue reading “Unemployment Day 1: Housewife”

Why I Share My Story

My two year blogging anniversary is rapidly approaching. It’s hard to believe that it’s been this long.

My second postContinue reading “Why I Share My Story”

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!”

Sometimes…

Sometimes… Sometimes even in the midst of chaos, When the world is bleak and scary and too much, When I question everything and doubt myself , Sometimes… Sometimes there are moments, Brief moments that make my heart slow down it’s pace, That still the noise in my head, That fill me with peace, Sometimes… SometimesContinue reading “Sometimes…”

Soap Galore!

After weeks of dragging my feet and doubting myself and chickening out, I’ve finally made a Facebook page for my soap company so I can start selling to more than my friends. I’m so appreciative of those of you who’ve reached out with encouragement along the way. I couldn’t have done it without you cheeringContinue reading “Soap Galore!”

Watermelon Explosion!

Alright so obviously I haven’t written much lately about my family’s crazy antics. Life has been hectic and weird. We’ve definitely been on a weird ride though. The good news is, this time I can actually SHOW you what we did. The Hubs has been working hard to build his YouTube channel Donny Duct TapeContinue reading “Watermelon Explosion!”

Love Everyone.

Today’s post is going to be a little different. I don’t normally post here about my faith or morality. I started out writing to create a safe place for people to come and read and laugh about the weird life I lead. It’s become so much more than that. I’ve kept relatively quiet about myContinue reading “Love Everyone.”
