Busy Bee…

February is one of the busiest months in our family. My oldest is turning 16 and my husband, sister-in-law, and nephew all have birthdays too. My Grandparent’s are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on Valentine’s day and we are throwing them a party. With all of this added to the normal school stuff and family […]

Snow! Snow! Snow!

Here in Oklahoma, snow isn’t a guaranteed part of winter – especially in November. Today we woke up to huge, beautiful snow flakes falling from the sky. The kids were sure this meant that there would be no school, but their hopes were dashed. The ground is too warm for the snow to stick and […]

Whatcha Reading Wednesday

It’s finals week and my brain is mush. I haven’t read anything for fun in over a week and if I have to look at any more international economics reviews I might lose it. I’m very much looking forward to the summer when I can read what I want for at least three months! I […]

It’s my birthday!

Today is my 37th birthday. I had a final this morning in my human sexuality class and an eye doctor appointment – this is what happens on birthdays when you get older. My youngest has a performance at school tonight and then the family is taking me to dinner.  I also have to study for […]

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I hope everyone has a wonderful day full of family, chocolate and beautifully colored eggs. I’m making my first Easter lunch this year – ham, twice baked potato casserole, macaroni and cheese, and pig cake. In the past we’ve either gone to my grandparents or to my in-laws house. My mother-in-law passed away […]

I’m baaaaaack!

After taking a year off from blogging and writing I am back. I have settled into my office and will start a new book sometime in the next week. I’m going to start doing book reviews again too. I miss posting about what I love (and hate).  There will also be other kinds of posts […]

My new office!

For the last several months my husband has been working on a special project. He built me an office in the garage, complete with a/c, heat and a door that locks! (With three kids, a door that locks is the best part!) My office is my own space that I can decorate however I want […]

Manic Monday – 9/15/14

Ugh – today started off rocky. My oldest kid’s bus was over thirty minutes late and it was raining. I finally got a hold of the bus barn and the kids got picked up. Then tragedy struck! I ran out of coffee creamer before I even made one cup of coffee. It’s hard to get three […]
