Join Our Daily Self Isolation Party

Hello world...everything right now is insane...for real. I honestly feel like we are living a movie/book, crazy stuff is happening....seriously I would not be the least bit surprised if zombies started walking the streets (too much Walking Dead?LOL) or if aliens arrived from the sky....but alas, that is not what this blog post is about. We have enough fear/bad news posts out there. I want this to be a happy/good news/making the best of a bad situation post.  Beginning today, Ever After Acres will be posting Days of the Year....(some will be international, others may not even be something Canada...

Oh Where, Is My Hairbrush

Oh Where, Is My Hairbrush

It has been one week since I have brushed/combed my hair. You may think I am doing this on purpose....but nope, I live in a house with 4 other females...and brushes/combs always get lost. I am not sure how, I use mine and put it back on the dresser where it belongs, until one of said other females "borrows" it and does not bring it back.  I swear we have at least 10 brushes in this house and way more combs....my hair does not care which I use...it doesn't not really care for my fingers (which is what I have...

Usually we try and do something as a family, even just hanging at the house with movies and popcorn and homemade pizza, or sliding or skating. But...

Why Is Friendship So Hard?

Why Is Friendship So Hard?

Do you remember being a kid and having friends? How did we ever get those friends? I remember walking down the street to the park, if there was a kid there and we said hi....now we are friends, it was that easy. None of this, do you like the same things? Do our personalities go together? We were just kids and did kid stuff and became friends.  As a child, I had different sets of friends....my parents friends had kids, we were friends....my neighbourhood had kids, we were friends....my school had kids, we were friends. As I got older more...

The Thing I Don't Talk About

The Thing I Don't Talk About

I have been very real with what I share on here....and today will be no different. It feels a little strange to be opening up about this on such a public forum....although I have never really kept it a secret, I just don't talk about it much.  I would say approximately 2 years ago I began my journey of trying to improve my quality of life (and those of my husband and children) when dealing with my PMDD. I tried supplements and some prescription drugs....at the time they did not seem to "fix" the problem, in fact some of those...
