I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

I have been a chicken mama and Learning The ChickenĀ 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. šŸ˜Š I always wanted chickens and I now get why chicken owners get obsessed cause … Continue reading I’m being Manipulated By My Chickens

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

I’m Going To My First Comic Convention, The Book Review

They say to write what you know. And there aren't many people who know the costume and convention scene like Candy Keane from Geekmamas. Between her personal cosplays, her geeky blog, and her costume shop (to mention a few), she has kind of done it all. So, yeah, she wrote when she knows! Every caregiver … Continue reading I’m Going To My First Comic Convention, The Book Review

Dear Parents, This is Not Homeschooling

So due to the coronavirus pandemic, kids doing school at home has become a thing Some call it distance learning, virtual learning or online learning. Those all work. Call it what you want but don't call it homeschooling. Because it's not. What is homeschooling? Homeschooling is taking control of your child's education. It's finding a … Continue reading Dear Parents, This is Not Homeschooling

My Son Moved Back Home

So awhile ago, I wrote an angsty post about my oldest son moving out. Neither one of us handled it well and it caused a lot of hurt feelings on my end. It's all the proverbial water under the bridge now, though. And everything is just fine between us. I always figured that at some … Continue reading My Son Moved Back Home

Visualizing With My Vision Board

I was invited to a vision board party and I was immediately stoked. Admittedly, that was because I read the words "I'm keeping the invite list small." I made the cut! She likes me, she really likes me! šŸ˜‚ Then I realized that I had no idea what a vision board was or a party … Continue reading Visualizing With My Vision Board

My Thrive Experience

In a previous post, I mentioned that I have been using Thrive. So I thought I would use it as an excuse to write another review! I'm also very curious about others' experiences if anyone out there is also "thriving." I don't claim to be super knowledgable about Thrive. I just claim to like the … Continue reading My Thrive Experience

The Person That I Want To Be

I feel like I'm still figuring out who I am. I believe that I am inherently a good person but sometimes (ok, lots of times), I get reminders that I'm still a work in progress. I'm also a person who is obsessed lately with buying positive message shirts like these. So back to the reminders … Continue reading The Person That I Want To Be

My Son And His Room

As a mom, finding the balance between my expectations and what the kids can reasonably be expected to do is a constant struggle. Of course, this is not just a mom thing. It's a Dad thing or any kind of caregiver thing. Really, it's a thing for anyone who has to ever deal with other … Continue reading My Son And His Room

My Kids Are Miraculously Mine.

I saw this picture at the thrift store and I hesitated because, as I have mentioned before, I have read many posts about the "wrongness" of celebrating adoption. I have read about how it can be a tragedy for the biological connections. How adoption means loss because you're not where you were "supposed" to be. … Continue reading My Kids Are Miraculously Mine.
