Weekend Rewind, Baseball Edition

Weekend Rewind, Baseball Edition

How is it that, in our house at least, we are always more exhausted when the weekend is over than we were when it started?! Friday afternoon, my awesome friend Sam said that they had some extra tickets for the Braves game that night, and asked if we wanted to come with them.  Um, yes?! … Continue reading

April Wrap-Up

April Wrap-Up

Things I Did Well in April Laundry!  I was a laundry QUEEN this month.  I do at least two loads a day, plus every other day I wash the diapers.  If Avery’s diaper leaks overnight (he’s only daytime potty trained) then that’s two more loads. Decluttering.  I have two small children and a husband who’s … Continue reading

Let Them Eat Cake

Let Them Eat Cake

With the American Academy of Pediatrics changing their recommendations what seems like every other day, I really wasn’t sure when to introduce solid foods to Jackson.  When Avery was a baby, the recommendation was solidly four months.  By the time Avery was four months old, we were already done breastfeeding for good.  We had struggled … Continue reading

The Case for Going Paperless

The Case for Going Paperless

As I shared in my first cloth diaper review, I am not very green.  I cloth diaper because it is cheap.  I breastfeed because it’s free.  I wash all my clothes (except diapers) in cold water because it saves on the electricity bill–same with the CFL bulbs we have in every fixture.  I buy consignment … Continue reading

Worship Wednesdays

The verse that I’ve been hung up on this week, that keeps popping into my head as I move throughout my day, is Ecclesiastes 9:10.  I typically read The Message, but since this is a single verse and The Message doesn’t have verse numbers, I’m sharing with you the New International Version: “Whatever your hand … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind

We had a SUPER busy weekend that I’m still recovering from, trying to catch up on the laundry and clutter and such.  (How does a house get messy twice as much when you aren’t even home?!  My guess is the “come in, dump your stuff, grab more stuff, leave, repeat.”) Since we did so much, I’ll … Continue reading

Clean Sweep

Clean Sweep

I always try to clean the house right before we leave, especially if it’s for more than the day.  But, we had to housesit for my dad with little notice, so I had to leave the house as-is and let the junk pile up double when we got home. We got home today, and the … Continue reading
