Will Work For Chickens

A couple of weeks ago, I started a new job. It was the perfect situation, just two days a week, nannying for two kids who were quite lovable. I was surprised that it happened because when the woman contacted me, she said that she needed a nanny for two full days and three partial days. … Continue reading Will Work For Chickens

I’m Not The Biological Mom And That’s Ok

I used to get so upset when people would prefer to my foster care adopted kids' biological mother as their mom; as evidenced by the many adoption blog and facebook posts, over the years. But, as time moved on, it has bothered me less and less. This is probably partly because it happens less since … Continue reading I’m Not The Biological Mom And That’s Ok

Joss Whedon And The Truth

Sexual harassment, hostile work environments, and sexual assault are just some of the words that we hear in regards to women's issues. We hear the words more and more now but not because the issues are new but because they are being acknowledged more and more. You only have to search #metoo to see many, … Continue reading Joss Whedon And The Truth

Love And Relationships:What We Wish We Knew

What is love? Why do some have it and some can't seem to figure it out? Man, I don't know. But, in honor of Valentine's Day, I decided to do a round-up post about love and relationships!

Riding Horses With My Son

So, I decided to drag William to my horse land. Originally, I was worried that it would be an issue because he has a tendency to toe-walk. This is an issue that has definitely worsened while staying safe at home for so long. Research showed that horseback riding could help with this, though. Ok, my … Continue reading Riding Horses With My Son

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 Hate Waking My Son Up

My 13 year old epitomizes the term "heavy sleeper." The worst part of my day has always been any time that I have to wake him up. Homeschool definitely makes that part easier because I can try to let him wake up naturally. Not always, though, because he has been known to sleep all day. … Continue reading I Hate Waking My Son Up

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

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
