A Rough Start to the New Year

The new year brought along a bit of a rough spell for us. Not only did Lord Tyrneathem have to deal with the kidney stones, but I came down with a really nasty cold. Today is the first I have been out of bed in over four days. The Prince picked it up too…...

Ringing in 2014 in the ER

We began our New Year’s Eve with plans of driving to see a group of friends that we hadn’t spent time with in quite awhile. After the Prince was born, we pretty much stuck close to home unless he was with us. It was kind of a big deal for us to leave him...

Our Christmas ~ Christmas Day 2013

Santa arrived overnight and we started our day opening gifts from the big guy in red. The Prince was spoiled with a ton of train toys including a wooden rail set with Thomas trains, a Duplo motorized train set, and a Strider bike. He was a bit startled by the big...

Our Christmas ~ Christmas Eve 2013

We had a nice Christmas with our families this year. Our Christmas Eve was a small gathering of my mom, Lord Tyrneathem, the Prince, and myself. We had our traditional dinner of polish sausage and cinnamon rolls. It’s a strange combination, yet it always hits...

Merry Christmas!

I am taking the next two days to spend time with my family and share in the holiday with those that I love. I may pop in if I find I have some downtime, but family is the priority this next couple of days. I leave you with my first gingerbread house… which I...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Home

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....

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Family

If you’ve been around here awhile, you know that I struggle with some of the members of my family. If you also come from a family with a long history of mental illness, you probably understand… sometimes it’s best for your own sanity to just walk...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Health

In honor of the month of Thanksgiving, I have decided to write about one thing I’m thankful for each day of this month. I encourage other bloggers to join in with me and for readers to comment below with their own reasons to give thanks. As I’m sitting...

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...

History of Games

Board games have a long history. We can presume that the first games were created when human life became settled enough to enjoy leisure time and not focus entirely on survival. Games also serve a purpose beyond entertainment: they are a great way to teach and learn,...

Message to My Teenager

A friend of mine recently shared this to her profile on Facebook. Though my son is nowhere near a teenager just yet, I thought it was worth sharing for those who are already there. There’s some great… and sometimes humorous… advice in this list. 1....

What should you keep in mind before moving?

I remember the weekend my husband and I moved into our house. The two of us were moving from our two separate apartments into one house. We moved my belongings on one day and all of his on the next. It was chaos! Though we had both thought ourselves prepared, we ran...
