Lobster Shadows and Flying Waffles

Kids grow up so fast these days, I know that it’s just a matter of time before I’m “lame mom.” I used to be a lot of fun. I used to have fun riding 4-wheelers, playing softball and going out with friends.  My husband and I had a mechanical bull at our wedding reception, so … Read more

Moms Can’t Dream.

Have you ever stood alone over the trash can in the kitchen, slowly eating pieces of leftover Halloween candy, and woefully think to yourself Why did I have kids? An endless loop of video game music plays in the next room along with requests for snacks, and I can see the baby crawling towards the … Read more

How I Maximize My Grocery Savings in the Kitchen

I maximize those savings at home by using my supplies efficiently, and “stretching” the meats I buy into multiple recipes.  One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that meat doesn’t have to be the main feature for … Read more

How I Save Big at the Grocery Store Without Coupons

I am a self-reformed label snob when it comes to groceries.  Back when my husband and I were first married, we went shopping at the store and he reached for a can of vegetables that were off-brand.  I wrinkled up my nose and told him that I didn’t want to eat anything with an ugly … Read more

Quality Time with the Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaner belts see me coming and immediately throw themselves to the ground in surrender.  I have never considered myself an “agressive vacuumer” but I always buy extra belts when I get a new sweeper because they are no match for my apparent wrath. I admit that I never changed the belts myself, I always … Read more

SNIP!

With a quick snip and a bag of frozen peas, we have eliminated the possibility of having more children.

Precious Vandalism

When our kids are quiet we always have to investigate why don’t we? Yesterday afternoon, my six year old son Timothy went to his room to “take a nap” (which has yet to actually turn into taking a nap) while I was putting the baby down for a nap in the crib. I stepped into … Read more
