People, let me tell you ’bout my best pen!

Let’s lay it all down. I love stationary. I always have. No kid really looks forward to the end of summer, but when a whole paper grocery bag of brand new school supplies were coming my way, I maybe didn’t mind so much. I remember being 8 and falling in love with a particular perforated […]

Muscle Memory

Five below is selling cat’s cradle strings. In rainbow colors, of course. When the Princess and I went to pick up a few things for our upcoming beach vacation they were at the register and, of course, I impulse purchased one. A few years ago the Princess and I tried to teach the girl scout […]

Happy July, Ya’ll!

When you last heard from me, we were in depths of snow days with April looming ahead. In the past three months, Big Daddy has had an employment change, the Princess graduated high school (I know. Our baby!), Littlebit finished fifth grade with all A’s and Baby Bee managed to hit the honor roll for […]

Reducing Screen time–and the menu plan!

I have a love/hate relationship with my iphone. I love that little monster like woah.  I love having the world at my fingers.  Literally.  There’s no song I can’t listen to, no book I can’t read, no directions I can’t find.  As someone who loves information, there’s something magical about having all of time and […]

These Kids Today

I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. I do that sometimes. Sometimes I’m too far in my feelings for something to make sense. Sometimes I’m trying to describe a bunch of feelings that you can’t easily put words to. Sometimes, I’m not sure if I’m ready to post something I know could be […]

February Reads

Soooo, I planned on doing a January reads post and I didn’t.  Sorry.   I only had one five star book in January Big Little Lies by Laine Moriarty and, honestly, by this time everyone has probably either read it, watched the mini series or heard of it.  It was still an excellent read and I’ve […]

Like a Friggin’ Lion–AND the Menu Plan

Happy Monday! I am happy to report that we did not end up in Oz after it got “really windy for Ohio” at our house.  I know a lot of the Northeast and Midwest are in way worse shape than us.  No snow.  No power loss.  Just a creepy moaning wind noise.  We didn’t even […]

February BuJo (a little late)

I spent one million years on this F…. I also purchased a hand lettering book last month, but I wasn’t impressed with it.  It wasn’t what I was looking for, so I may move on to Craftsy.com or something for an actual class.  That is my actual shitty handwriting.  I’m working on it. I really […]

The One Where I Get Another Crazy Idea

On the best days, I’m agnostic. Big Daddy says humanist is less polarizing, so I’m considering that. You’d think as an atheist/agnostic I probably wouldn’t pay much notice to Lent, but you’d be wrong. Probably the best thing about not subscribing to a religion is that I get to pick and choose which rituals I […]

That Time Big Daddy was Right–and the Menu Plan

A couple of times a year, I freak out about menu planning and grocery shopping. I rant. I rave. I tell other people YOU can do it (and then don’t like how they do it and throw up my hands and say that I’ll do it anyhow). This happened recently. Poor Big Daddy.  I’m high […]
