First Camping Trip

I took the kids camping this weekend. We use to camp a lot but the last two years we sort of cut back because of all the nonsense I had to endure. I decided this year we would do it as it was time for the family to be a family WITHOUT electronics causing use... Continue Reading →

Visit From My Mom

So for Mother's day I bought my Mom tickets to see Riverdance. She is a huge fan but would never go on her own and if I bought her tickets near her she would not go with a friend. So that means she comes up here to my house. My kids laugh because they see... Continue Reading →

Belt Testing

This past Saturday the girls did their testing in TKD. It was happy and sad for me. Happy because I got to see them, sad because I was sidelined. I had been working hard too but it was not meant to be I guess. This was N's first test. Yikes so many things I did... Continue Reading →

While the struggle is very real and very hard I often lie to myself about how bad it really is living with it day in and out. Let me clarify On Monday I ask her where her homework is. She...

Mom 1 Defiant Teen 0
