My Political Plan

It’s that time again – election season in a Presidential year. Oh my, how I hate it! As a young girl, I experienced my first heart palpitations while listening to preachers proclaim the evil-incarnate that was Bill Clinton. They told us to go home and kiss our religious liberties goodbye, because Clinton was on a… Continue reading My Political Plan

A Rough Week

Sickness, dental appointments, homeschooling, and more sickness. That’s what my week has consisted of. That is also the reason for my absence from my blog. On Monday, Matt came down with a terrible stomach virus. It took him a full two days to get over it. Tuesday, Leslie and Laci had milder versions of it.… Continue reading A Rough Week

Happy May! {And Other Things}

I intended to post this yesterday, on the first day of May, but alas, I ran out of time! It’s hard to believe it’s May already! Of course, by the weather, it feels like February! We are having lots of strong gusts of wind and extremely low highs today – in the 40s! Weird. We… Continue reading Happy May! {And Other Things}


My Favorite Moving Tips

When Terry and I were shopping for bubble wrap and packing tape, he picked up a new item: shrink wrap! He tossed it into the cart without pause. I said, “What’s that for?” He said, “I don’t know, you never know when it will come in handy.” I said nothing, but was thinking, “This will… Continue reading My Favorite Moving Tips

My friend, Ava, is always so good about sharing interesting or helpful blog posts that she finds on the web. She has a regular meme called “Blog Post Roundup”. Usually, I’m not able to find the little gems that she does, but I have found a few, so I thought I’d pass them along. 🙂… Continue reading Interesting Blog Posts
