Well, in our house it was me today but the kids are pretty good about making lunch on most days which helps out a lot.
Social media can be a tough place to hang out.
Not only is there a way too much division right now, but even just seeing other moms trying to be positive and sharing the great things their kids are doing tends to make lots of people feel less than adequate.
“Comparisonitis” isn’t good for anyone’s mental health, and today I want to challenge you to take inspiration from what others are doing instead.

How are y’all doing?
I’ve started feeling a tad bit better this week… not having constant nausea like I previously had although it still hits and still knocks me down from time to time. I have managed to make all of our ‘normal’ breakfasts for the week… yay! The kids were happy to have French Toast and Pancakes again. I had cheated and bought quite a bit of cereal over the past few weeks… they like cereal but they missed their hot meals.
I had used up all of my freezer meals and was forced to cook this week… dinner was not always on the table at the usual time but it did get made. Sometimes dinner didn’t quite make sense as I was just pulling things out of the cabinets in the order I found them… lol.

First off I want to say that my family and I have been extremely BLESSED in so many ways so I don’t want anyone to think that we don’t feel that way but sometimes those blessings can also cause quite a bit of FRUSTRATION.
For example, to say that this house buying process has been fun would not be quite truthful. Honestly, I’ve never imagined it would have been such a frustrating and stressful thing. If I had known this, from the beginning, I may not have felt the same way about the house. Continue reading “Friday Frustrations”
This post actually started out as a different post but it got so long that I broke it down and decided to share this part of it with you today!
Things have been SO CRAZY BUSY here lately… I can’t tell you about everything we’ve been up to but I will let you know about a few things we have been doing down below. We are so excited about EVERYTHING that is going on and we just can’t wait to SPILL THE BEANS with EVERYONE!
For now, though I’ll tell you about some of our latest adventures here in our little cabin.
A trip to the movies
We took them ALL to see the new Lion King and it was so GOOD! My oldest son was a HUGE Lion King fan when he was little… and I believe he may still be very partial to the original but my younger kids only knew about the new Disney version of the series.
Here’s a trailer for it if you haven’t seen it yet:

Oh my goodness, what a day I’ve had and it isn’t even been lunchtime yet. I actually went to bed early last night as I was just so exhausted. Mr. Awesome had a meeting and wouldn’t be home until late so I made the most of the evening.
The kids helped me make Chili Dog Casserole for dinner. We made it a little bit different as we just put the hotdogs into hotdog buns, instead of tortillas, and then spread the chili sauce on top and sprinkled with cheese before baking.
Mr. Awesome is not crazy about the tortilla version so we decided to give it a try this way and it was a WINNER! Continue reading “Oh, What a day! Freezer meals, Pinterest Suspension, and No Toilet Paper”
This is a recipe that I have adapted from the Real Mom Cookbook. I love mushrooms and I love these. I usually saute the rest of the mushrooms from the pack and serve them with dinner. You could probably use canned mushrooms but I prefer to buy fresh ones.
The original recipe also has a sauce that goes with it but my kids don’t like the sauce and prefer to eat with their hands whenever they can. These are also great to make for parties or get-togethers. Continue reading “Chicken Pillows”
We all know how it is to be working really intently on a project only to get distracted by something or someone. I know my kids never seem to need anything until I am working on bills, my blog, paperwork, or if I get a phone call. A phone call in itself can be a major distraction depending on the timing of it. Continue reading “If it’s not the kids, it’s the cat…”
This was an old blog post from my previous blog where I talk about our homeschool journey and our routines that help me keep my sanity! Just reading over this has given me a little inspiration for changing a few things that aren’t working right now.

It’s ‘Summer Break
’ at our house… more like ‘Wedding Break
’ as I had originally planned on schooling
through the year. We took a break off to finish up big sister’s wedding
and then we were scheduled to start back today. That’s not happening though as I am exhausted.

Original Blog Post-April 21, 2016
Its 9:00 am and I’m sitting on my bed feeling overwhelmed already. I was determined I would make it through the day without crying or feeling sad but that’s not the case.
Something my husband said the other day still haunts me and it saddens my heart for him, our children, and for what the future holds if he doesn’t change the path he is on. I know he says he is happy but I can’t help but feel sad when I think of how he will feel when the day comes and he realizes what he gave up on and what he missed out on.
