Camp Swinging

Good afternoon!!  I am going to start recording our newer hiking and camping experiences as we venture and branch out with trying  more intense camping with the girls. Today is shaping up to be a cloudy, humid day that awaits for bursts of rain to drain from the clouds.   Since we are stuck inside…

Running Waters

Hello!! It has been a bit of time, but I have been quite busy, plus a little avoidance of actually sitting down at my computer.  My internet has been all over the place for some odd reason.  I have yet to determine fully if it is the browser I am using or if something else…

Fresh Strawberries

We have had an extremely busy week.  This past week was the Strawberry Festival!  In this small town everything stops and pauses for nine days around this event.  The festival has food trucks, parades, eating contests, pageants, live music, crafts, kid events, contests, games and a carnival.  Each day of the week offers something new…

Summer Planning

I have done it again.  I fell off the side of the road and been letting the wind blow away all my thought bubbles of writing to you.  I have been occupied family wise. The weather has been insane.  Nice days and rainy days, but now that the weather is starting to warm up we are…

Monkeying Around

So the AC fix turned out to be a lie.  The next day when it was running after being fixed the house still managed to reach 75 degrees on the inside.  When I went outside to take a look at the unit I discovered that it was completely frozen over.  I decided to turn it…

Heating Topics

I believe we are in the clear of our previous pesky situation.   Nine days after my discovery of those nasty creepy crawlers the school issued a letter home speaking to numerous outbreaks throughout different classrooms.  They also started sending the nurse to each class to do head checks.  I guess late is better than…

An Open Letter to all Parents (and to be)…

Dear Parents and Future Parents, Please have enough sense and respect to not send your child to school when they have an illness or other annoying, pesky ailment like lice.  I understand that many of you work and “can’t afford” to keep your kids home from school, but some situations demand you to do so.…

Lights Out

We have been having a rough week as far as the weather goes. It has been cold, the winds shake the house, the rain turns to ice and then snow and then back to rain again, all while the power struggles to stay on.  Losing power for hours at a time is a whole other…

Snow Birds

I have been experiencing an extreme overwhelming feeling of insecurity and self doubt.  I guess that they are both one in the same, but I can not explain how this feeling has crept up on me or even why.  I can think of a few changes in my life that have occurred over the past few…

Baking Guns

Good morning, or should I say afternoon?  Our long Valentine’s weekend has ended and the girls are finally back in school.  Last night brought down rains that melted away a large amount of snow clearing the roads for early morning driving.  We had a fun, game filled, relaxed weekend.  We were unable to do our…
