I Forget About My Son’s ADHD

My son has ADHD and sometimes that just seems like a catch-all diagnosis. Through the years, there have been those who didn't completely think that ADHD was a "thing" and there have been those who thought it was as simple as taking away sugar. And there have been those who didn't think I should have … Continue reading I Forget About My Son’s ADHD

Trying To Catch My Chickens

I have reached a new level in my relationship with my chickens. I already felt pretty confident that they weren't afraid of me in any way but now they are comfortable enough to manipulate me! Yay! They are now like my human children. Ha! Well, I mean, they already manipulated me but like I said, … Continue reading Trying To Catch My Chickens

I Did It My Way….A Review

I recently switched to Myway! It's a pre-pay version of JEA (Jacksonville Electric Company). I was immediately skeptical when they pitched it to me as I visualized random disconnections because I was a dollar short in the account or running to my account every day to pay the piper. Oh, please don't turn off my … Continue reading I Did It My Way….A Review

When You Lose Your Cat

I have had cats all of my life. Sometimes a reasonable amount, sometimes not so much. But, I have always loved them. And, of course, there have been a few that were particularly special to me. One of these cats is Coulson. We had him since he was a baby in 2012. But, in April, … Continue reading When You Lose Your Cat

I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

I have been a chicken mama and Learning The Chicken Ropes for a couple of months now and they are still so dang cute. It has been really cool to learn about them and I'm definitely looking forward to the eggs. 😊 I always wanted chickens and I now get why chicken owners get obsessed cause … Continue reading I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

Learning How To Not Ride A Horse

So despite my slightly traumatic intro lesson, I officially signed up for horseback riding lessons! I was excited but nervous. I agonized about having to get on the horse again. I pumped myself up and despite the pit in my stomach, I headed out with my partner in crime, Paige, and her daughter. But, I … Continue reading Learning How To Not Ride A Horse

When Kids Take Care Of You

Sometimes, my kids surprise me. Well, not surprise, just impress. I already knew that William had a sensitive soul and that Lizzie has a huge heart but no idea how to express her emotions. (Because she doesn't like to admit that she has them.) Me, on the other hand, I'm a big ball of emotion. … Continue reading When Kids Take Care Of You

Horseback Riding For Dummies

So I started a thing! Horseback riding lessons! My friend, Paige, (the same one who encouraged my new chicken mama life) has been taking lessons. She offered to gift me an intro lesson and even though, I had serious concerns about my lack of flexibility/strength/coordination, I went for it. And bonus: you're pretty much guaranteed … Continue reading Horseback Riding For Dummies

Learning To Care For Chickens

I have chickens. I'm a chicken mama! I also feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. I have done my research but, I have chickens! Why do I have chickens? It's because I have a friend who tends to make things happen. Sometimes that's good, sometimes not as good. 🤣She's the kind of … Continue reading Learning To Care For Chickens

Homeschool, Houses, and Hamilton

I haven't blogged in a long time. It is a little ironic to me that the last time that I did post, we were officially in Covid life and, weeks and weeks later...we still are. For the most part, life has been boring. But, I'm not complaining as one alternative to boring could be illness … Continue reading Homeschool, Houses, and Hamilton
