So I Guess I’m a “Homeschool Mom” Now

  I have a secret and I have no idea why it's a secret. I am homeschooling Ella. I started over a week ago, and I haven't really told anyone outside of my circle (other than homeschool groups on Facebook, then breaking the news to my Instagram followers).

Hamsters Are Cool-You Should Get One

  You really should. I've noticed that since getting a hamster, I have been less stressed out, and just kind of even. Even, man. I do believe that our hamster Nibbles is directly responsible for this behavior. That and it's just good to have another living thing dependent on me I mean, Ella.

My Dreams Will Give You Nightmares

  A few months ago, I read somewhere that first thing in the morning you should write your dreams down on a piece of paper, in your phone, wherever, so that you could look at them when your mind is clearer.

Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two

    I mentioned in part one the traffic hell we experienced on the road to Destin. Just after the Alabama rooster incident, Ella got car sick and had "sick" all over her clothes. Thank God she had layers on (us Midwesterners, always ready), so we literally stripped her down in an abandoned parking lot, … Continue reading Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two
