Uncategorized, What do you do?



My kid recently had his room repainted and just “made over”. I decided I wanted to do something special for him. Our lives are going to be changing forever soon and I want for all of our kids to feel important and loved. I like to make these small gestures from the heart. For me this is part of the way I show my love. I think they know that too. Last night when I gave it to him, I put it on his bed and had him come see. He quickly turned back the covers and said oooh nice. Can I go to bed now? He’s such a fun kid. I’m so honored to be his mother. If I could I’d give him the world. He’s the most amazing kid I’ve ever met. I’m so lucky!!!!

Anyway, I really wanted to show you what I had made. I’m wondering…what do you do in your free time?

Bathroom Remodel


We have been going through our house redoing different rooms of our home. I painted the walls and made the pretty sign I hung above the toilet. I was really pleased with how it turned out and I feel like it’s a bathroom we can be proud of. It’s the bathroom downstairs, so the kids use it and so do guests that come to visit. The only thing I wish I could do in the bathroom is figure out a way to have more storage space.

What do you do? Laundry Edition


I’ve had a bad day. It’s one of those days where I need to occupy my mind, because if I don’t, then I might scream and cry. See the problem is C is really struggling in school. It’s not learning that is the issue. He seems to struggle with his teacher. She’s a great woman. I like her in general, as a person. I just think C has some special needs. I’m not talking disabilities…I’m talking about behavioral needs. Even when C was a baby he always needed constant reassurance. He was always outgoing, never shy, but he seems unsure of himself. I’ve had him tested by a psychologist for Autism and ADHD. They’ve said he doesn’t have it. Now they are reevaluating him at 11. I think if he had ADHD he’d have been diagnosed WAY before now. No matter what though, I’m just wanting him to just be happy….healthy…and educated. I’m just really struggling today. What do I do when I struggle? I make stuff! Today I made laundry soap. I started making it years and years ago. It’s the best.
