Jake is currently mad at me. Let me start off this post by saying that he got to go with his grandparents and cousin yesterday to a local festival, and then his cousin got to stay the night. They had no bedtime and got to play tons of video games, watch tv, draw pictures, etc. … Continue reading Sometimes “Momming” is hard

My baby graduated!
Sahara graduated tonight! Sahara and Tyler
It's amazing how I can just pile up junk when I'm pressed for time or stressed. I also tend to go blind to the piles after walking by them for so long. It drives me nuts. I have been tackling a lot of decluttering projects over the past couple of weeks. I set my timer … Continue reading Cleaning up
Yep. I can grow a jungle!
Unfortunately, Ted has to deforest it once it starts taking over the flower bed and sidewalk! Poor guy... That project that started with the backhoe project last week is now in phase two, and once it's finished, it will cut his weedeater workload way down every weekend!

He stayed … Continue reading He’s adapting well…

Gramma Izzie’s noodles – video of Gramma!
Before we had any idea that Gramma was sick, I asked her to teach me how to make her famous noodles. She came up on July 28, 2017, after I bought the "good flour" (ie: Gold Medal All Purpose), and I photographed and recorded her as she did this, not realizing it would be the … Continue reading Gramma Izzie’s noodles – video of Gramma!
