So, recently, a friend posted a Secret Sister invite on her facebook page. Like many others, I was enticed by the idea of 6-36 presents. I'm not gonna lie, I am pro-present. I absolutely love getting presents. Now to be fair, I also love giving presents so it's not that I'm selfish or anything like … Continue reading No Secret Sisters For Me!
I want to be happy. I want to feel fulfilled. I want to figure out what my passion is and follow it. But, I'm not. And, I haven't (yet). A couple of months ago, I started working. It's not because I wanted to. It's not because I thought I needed time away from my kids. But, I … Continue reading Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing
I always loved watching those shows where people reconnect with their birth families. It's so amazing to see it when families are back together. But, then I adopted kids. I don't know if I could be like those moms on tv. I don't know if I could give my blessing. Well, I don't know if … Continue reading Do I Love My Kids Enough To Let Them Go?
So, Lizzie and I got to make lip balm! Candy of geekmamas gave us a "do it yourself" lip balm kit from Kiss Naturals. It comes in an adorable package and has everything you need to make your very own lip balm. 🙂 I have to admit I had the kit for several days before we finally … Continue reading A DIY Kit That Even I Can Handle
I don't generally like change. Or change that doesn't involve chocolate or a new pet, anyway. But, the last couple of weeks have been full of change. After a lot of soul searching and discussing (some might say that I nagged), we made the decision to send William to a very small k12 private school. … Continue reading My Son Wasn’t Happy To Change Schools
Like every family, we have many different tastes. We range from Lizzie and Brian who like most things and me and Antwan who dislike most things. William and Kaleb are in the middle. But, in my determination to get an honest review of my latest product, I didn't explain to the youngest three what they were … Continue reading The Almond Company’s Almonds. It’s Like A Treat Bag For Humans!
When Candy from geekmamas gave me some Adagio Tea to try, I was definitely on board. Not just because I like tea but I also like geeky tea like the tea from Adagio fandom signature blends. There are so many fun options that cover countless fandoms and you can even purchase samplers of some of the blends to get an idea … Continue reading Adagio Tea Adds The Geek
It's no secret that we have been struggling with William. It seems like the last few weeks, months, years...it's been one thing after the other. Recently, he robbed me of my first ever mom break when he got himself kicked out of camp. I won't go into the details but I will say that it … Continue reading My Son Wants Me To Forget His History
Brian is a man who needs a hobby. When he comes home from work after a day of dealing with customers who are often less than polite, he wants to be mentally stimulated. I guess he needs to know that he is something besides Brian the store manager. Now me, after a day of momming and … Continue reading A Geeky House Makeover
I feel the need to write about Kaleb. He came into my life at a point when I wasn’t ready for a teenager. (To be fair, I don’t think anyone is ever ready for a teenager. ) I did however think I was ready and I did think I knew what I was getting into. … Continue reading Becoming Kaleb’s Friend
