    I’m Leaving Blogger

    This is a somewhat official announcement of my departure from Blogger.  I’ve mulled over this idea for the last two years, never taking the leap for this reason or that, but usually my reasons were due to finances and a lack of experience on my end with coding.  However, I think it is time to move on.  Blogger has served as an awesome beginner platform, but I’m ready to move on and leave the quirks that come with Blogger behind.  I don’t have a specific date for when this move will actually happen, but expect it to be very soon!  As in within the next month or even week.  If…

    …Weekend…

    …Gardening.  It happens every year around this time; I become antsy with planting my vegetable garden.  I’ve started my herbs again , using the paper bag method.  It was successful last year with all my herbs and tomatoes!  I’m also using another DIY seed starter that I’ll post about later.  I still need to purchase some of the seed starters from the store though.  I want to jump start most of my seeds indoors this year in order to extend my harvest period.  … Donuts.  We had a rare, sweet treat this weekend!  I say rare, not because we are sugar prudes, no no, we are quite the opposite.  I…

    In The Throes

    Bubba is in the throes of his academics, and like every semester, we are exhausted, slightly bitter, and testy with each other.  We have a running countdown until his graduation, and I am the first to tell you that we cannot wait.  In fact, I have a countdown app on my phone and it says we have 1,042 days left of this craziness.  That’s a whole lot of days’.  He attends summer classes, too.  This is a year round thing for us.   I find myself miffed about the level of self-sacrifice between Bubba and me.  Obviously I feel that my sacrifices are higher than his.  I had to ask him…

    Preparing

    We have three rainy days forecasted this week, making this the scene in my house for the next three days.  One day isn’t bad, but three days trapped inside a house with multiple toddlers is going to be crazy!  In preparation of the gloomy days ahead, they are getting extra playtime outside today while it is a warm 64 degrees & sunny.  What is your favorite thing to do when it’s constantly raining?  I could use the ideas!

    Hooray, Snow!

      Hello, polar vortex!  The cold temperatures finally graced the south for  a couple of days, and you can bet that the kids took full advantage of it.  I stayed inside, because baby, it was cold!  The snow has pretty much completely melted since the temps have risen back to 58 degrees today, but Scout, as it turns out, loves that white powder.  He has been belly aching, wanting to play in more snow.   Other than that, Bubba and I took advantage of our new vision insurance and had our eyes checked.  I still have 20/20 vision.  Booyah!! But, I still need to use my reader glasses when my eyes…
