Doctor Patches

I have come up with a new invention for humans to waste time and money on! There are patches for lots of different types of clubs out there, so how about we have patches for what we have survived thru? Instead of people having to ask about our health or knowledge, it could be right […]

Food Pits

By food pits, I’m referring to my dear children who consume large amounts of food on a daily basis. They don’t always consume large amounts. If they don’t like the taste so much, you end up with a ton of leftovers that they aren’t thrilled about re-heating the next day. which means the adults re-heat […]

Wind Chimes

I love wind chimes. It doesn’t matter if they are hollow pieces of bamboo clinking or strong metal pipes. They are beautiful. They tell me things when I am in the house. I can watch them move or hear them sing and dance. Their only job is to move with the unseen motion of the […]

Northwest

Trapped inside, forced to hide The grey is overwhelming The wet never ends, sun rarely begins and mold has found its heaven Beauty in green, a beautiful scene The rewards of the never ceasing rain The ocean is near, clouds shedding tears, I can taste the salt in the air The beaches are chilly, birds […]

The Incredibles – (at least in our own minds)

I have a magnet that says this: Remember we are a nice normal family. I love that magnet because it speaks truth for all of us! How many of us pretend we have no problems when we are around others? Or how many times do we wonder, is this normal? What is normal anyways? What […]

Our little imagination station

Sawyer is our youngest son. He is five now. He has all of his fathers “go getter” attitude with his mothers creative switch board. He is not an easy one to figure out. A very unique little fellow that doesn’t put up with anyone?s guff. He says what he thinks without thinking about it and […]

My Mental Miracle

I have had problems with depression and moodiness for as long as when I was a teenager maybe longer. I never realized I had an issue till I was about 23 years old. When I was at a doctors visit, my blood pressure reading was so bad, they had to re take it just to […]

Prudence’s Recipe for Legos

My kids like Legos. What kids don’t right? Legos are a pain in my heels. Literally. I find them everywhere and find myself just not wanting to get them out! Picking them up is a real trial on top of them being everywhere. Those little plastic pieces cost a lot of money and it’s good […]

Now That The Holidays are over…

I can relax. Holidays stress me out. Not so much Thanksgiving or New Years I guess, but Christmas. For me personally as a woman, I have a lot to be in charge of. Setting the mood for my nest, planning the menus, buying the food, making the food. Then there is who we want to […]

The Fridge Hold Up

I have always dreaded cleaning out the Fridge. I think I’ve finally figured out why. First of all, I’m always afraid of opening up something in a tupper-wear container and smelling something awful. (Like leaving it in there longer is going to petrify it so you can’t smell it any longer) You kind of just […]
