The Kid & the Kindle

We were finally able to replace our Kindle a few weeks ago and it made all three of us very happy! I didn't realize how much I missed reading my books on it and how convenient it was for doing quick online tasks. The Prince loves to play with a variety of fun apps....

Battle of the Garages

  I became very thankful for owning our own home today. While watching my mom struggle with the ridiculously inept management at her apartment, I truly began to appreciate how lucky we are to no longer deal with the whims of others when it comes to our home....

A Sick Day

I swear that we seem to pick up something every time Xander has his check-up with the doctor! Now we've spent the last two days feeling completely lousy. Not a great time for me to get sick, because I have a ton of product reviews to get ready for you all.... so many...

New Furniture

This post is long overdue... not because I took it a long time ago and forgot to post, but because it is something we have needed for about six years and we finally got it. New furniture! A local company that has been around for many, many years is going out of...

Biking in the Leaves

The leaves were falling off the trees so much today that it looked like it was snowing leaves. Despite the breeze, it wasn't terribly cold out, so Xander and I ventured out to play for a bit. He decided to bike down the little ditch in our yard while I panicked over...

A Video for a Change

Yep, there I go breaking my Photo A Day rules again! I'm posting a video. Tsk tsk. I published it to my YouTube page first, but I know I have  very few subscribers there compared to readers here. This one is funny enough to share a few times. You're going to love it!...

Xander’s Third Birthday

This past weekend we had a few family members over for a simple cake and ice cream gathering. I was aiming for one of those informal, no-fuss type of gatherings. I can't do no fuss... Originally, it was going to be Friday evening on Xander's actual birthday, but we...

Our Day of Big Savings!

Yesterday was one of those days that made me understand the exhilaration felt by extreme couponers. We have a shopping strategy that centers around finding the best deals... and having all our city's major stores within a couple blocks of each other makes it very...

My First 5K!

My friend Gretchen asked me to join her team for a local Walk for Suicide Awareness in our hometown. A few of our team members couldn't make it, so we ended up with Gretchen, her husband, my mom, Xander, and me... team Step Into Love. This year was the fourth-annual...

Our Minty Bathroom Touch-Up

I followed through with my Labor Day plans and dealt with (most) of our bathroom. There's not a lot of extra money, because we are saving up to replace our carpeting... so I mixed together the leftovers of the two shades of minty green used in our office/ playroom...

The Finger

This thing with my skin is so frustrating sometimes. It's just my hands... and in many ways, I'm fortunate for that... but it can be so dang inconvenient! A lot of people act like it's no big deal, but they don't understand the day to day struggle to avoid irritants...

Mugging

We were recently at A&W for lunch with Xander's Nana (my mom). We went often when we were growing up... until A&W began to fade from existence around here. We were really excitedwhen they started t make a comeback. They have the best root beer! It's all about...

{Interviews With the Prince} Colors

Today begins a new segment on Tyrneathem. Much like my Interviews With Myself segment, Interviews With the Prince will include a random get to know you type of question or journal prompt. In this case the response will be typed by the Prince himself. For the record,...

Fever

We ended up taking Xander into the emergency room last night. He was warm to the touch, despite a normal reading on the thermometer. He was sleeping and we couldn't wake him up. His heart felt like it was beating out of his chest. They ran a half dozen tests that all...

Water Baby

We've been on vacation! It was definitely interesting trying to maintain this blog while I was away. My phone service was really sketchy and I found I had far less time to turn on the computer than I expected... not so much "leisure" time. We visited Wisconsin Dells...

Our Furbaby Is In Surgery

This afternoon, we had to take our younger cat Selune in to the local emergency pet clinic. She had been a bit under the weather for about two days, but I attributed it to a bad case of hairballs. The weather has been crazy and both cats have been shedding up a storm....

Chalk

For those who follow me on Instagram, this is a repeat. Xander and I were outside playing in the driveaway. We started out drawing with chalk, but Xander got bored with it faster than I did... so he decided to grab his trike and drive over...

Rediscovering My Spark

Anyone following me for even a short time likely knows at least a little about my struggle with weight. After 10 years of fighting the effects of prednisone, I struggle to maintain motivation and keep fighting the fight against fat. I'm always creating "challenges"...

Unplugged ~ The Aftermath

We survived an "unplugged" day... though we were not quite as unplugged as I'd promised myself we would be. I did check in here to tackle a few questions and concerns. I popped in on Facebook to help a friend. My husband played on his computer. I forgot Wednesdays are...
