My youngest had her first ER visit just this weekend. There was no accident or anything where you would look at her and see anything wrong. Constipation, my friends. It is a silent and can even turn deadly… like a fart. Bad joke? Moving on! We ended up struggling with...

Introducing Willow, Our New Dog!

Been a while since my last blog post, apologies! Been a lot of family drama, that I wish not to stir up anywhere. Sadly I wish it were the same for the other part in this diabolical, but what can you do? In the chaos of it all, I brought...

Pokemon Go Weekend!

I started playing Pokemon Go September 19, 2016. You would think I was WAY up in levels by now? NOPE! I have children who want to play and who do not have cellphones. They won’t for a VERY, VERY long time, so I allow them to use my phone. They...

Another Cat?

Double Birthday 2016!

Today my oldest turns 11. Hard to believe 11 years ago today I was induced to have our beautiful baby girl because of my high blood pressure. It was a blessing really, when she was born the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice. Doctor said we were lucky...
