40 lessons learned from 40 years of life.

1. You can’t make someone love you let alone like you. And in the long run, you should not be seeking the approval of men, although it’s a nice thing to have. All that matters is that you not just know but fully grasp that God loves you. 2. You should never buy a used […]

Six Notes on Life as a Parent

Kids are a necessity to life and a gift from God, even if they do wear us down to a nubbins! A few things I am learning and have learned about parenting! 1. I must hide while on the phone for longer then 2min. What I have found, is that pointing to the phone and […]

One Hour Shoes

I like shoes. Why do I like shoes? I have no idea. Why do some dogs like bouncing balls? Yea, I can’t answer that either. I have always liked shoes. Not so much handbags, I like those, but I am content with the bags I have for years as long as they hold up! But, […]

Exploring My Child Side – A Ridiculous Idea

Here is a ridiculous idea. (One of many I drum up) I know dear readers, you are all grown and expect grown up speech and thought from grown up peoples online journals. But, we all need to take a stab of fun imagination to keep our minds pliable and soft. So, here is a little […]

Tales of Cars and Driving Them

I think between My husband and I, we have owned 30+ cars. This count is starting when he was 16. I currently drive a 25 year old land cruiser. I have about three things I want in a car. Working windows aren’t completely necessary, but enjoyable. Its going to be fun to get pulled over by a […]

Tiny Tots, with their eyes all aglow…

  You know the tune well. Christmas. What would you say about this word if you had to sum it up in one sentence? To me, Christmas is about showing love and bringing Joy and hope to others. Its not about me. Its about decorating my house to be a little more magical for my […]

Forget the HAM, let’s have Lasagna!

I think if there was a competition for the States worst communicator complemented by stubbornness, I might be 4th or 5th in the ranking. The Higher winners medals would go to (and I say this lovingly) a few of my immediate family members. I don’t know how many dumb arguments could have been prevented by […]

A Pet Friendly House

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” -Anatole France My family had pets growing up. I’m not so sure that mom could have done without them. She didn’t have too many animals growing up, I think they had a siamese cat once… She didn’t come from an animal family. […]

Live and Laugh About It

“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.” ~Bill Cosby I love to Laugh. And I find the silliest, simplest, unnoticeable things funny! Everyone finds something hilarious at some point in their life, […]

Putting Kids thru the car wash

I am often listening to my kids chatter as we do errands and go places. I say I “often” listen because, I can’t “always” listen, I have to drive and pay attention to whats going on around us for safety reasons and such. But, I often find something really amusing when I do listen to […]

Little Book of Your Children’s Funniest Moments…

Chris and I were given a little book from an older lady years ago. She said that we were to write in it all the cute things our kids said and did, because, while we always say we will remember, we don’t. So we have been writing in what we call “the book”. Here are […]

The Day I Stopped Traffic

I was driving home just today alone. All my children allocated to various other trusted souls, and I was remembering a day I wish never happened. It was 15 minuets of fright and heartbeats beating at a high rate of speed. The month was September. The day was cloudy with high wind gusts. The year […]

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 […]

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 […]

Scent my attitude

I have always been effected by smell. Yea, I know, it effects everyone, but smell for me? Well, it literally will change my attitude! Or I allow it to anyways. I can be talking to someone with halitosis and I will literally envision my skin melting off my face. Its like they have a dead […]
