Porta Potty Pandemonium (The Mistake I Won't Make Twice)!

Do you ever do something embarrassing but no one else was around...so you are the only one who knows, but it is so unbelievably funny....you decide to share anyway? (And can it still be embarrassing even if no one else saw....hmmm...I guess it can be embarrassing for yourself about yourself. hahaha)  I gotta start at the beginning for the story to make sense. (Yes, I am sharing an embarrassing story...that I could have totally kept anyone from ever knowing, but it was really too funny not to share....so I shared with Ben, and of course he thought I should share...

Ain't No Time For the Summertime...Colds?

It’s summer. Finally summer. As per my blog post last week I love the beach. I love summer, I love the heat (except when I am trying to sleep…hahaha).  Unfortunately, I have not been able to enjoy this past week’s weather. Our house got sick. Ugh. It has been over two years since a cold has gone through our house…thanks to basically not going anywhere. And I am glad things have opened up and we are back at craft fairs and such…but along with that comes the opportunity to contact sickness. It is not Covid…just so everyone knows…not this time...

No More Crappy Baths!!

This week something amazing happened. You may think I am exaggerating but I assure you, I am not.

Now, not all of my readers will understand my excitement, but I know I cannot be the only parent who celebrates these milestones.  I will explain by stating that after over 26 years of parenting, there have been lots of firsts and lasts over the years. Some are welcomed with smiles and others grieved with tears and I can guarantee some have been missed...

Ever After Acres, Our Home!

We live in the country, but on a busy road. It is not exactly what we were looking for in placement of our land and house. But the land and house were worth the sacrifice of living on a busy road. The house is far back enough that we have a good sized front yard, with a ditch to help our dogs and kids (although they are all old enough now to not go near the road) know the boundaries of the lawn.  Even the noise of the cars going by lessens the longer we live here, not because of...
