The other day, my best friend and I were talking about her impending 40th birthday –which happens to be today – and we were discussing how her husband didn’t know what to buy her as a gift. He went as far as to tell her that he’d been to 3 stores and left with nothing. As the person that should know her most (aside from me of course), she was frustrated to say the least.

I had to laugh, because in that conversation she said, “I’m not even one of those girls that are all “Don’t buy me anything for the house! BY ALL MEANS BUY STUFF FOR THE FREAKIN HOUSE! Lol” My reply went something like, “I totally agree, I just don’t want cleaning stuff, but buying wine glasses or a Keurig would be perfectly acceptable.” And she further agreed by saying, “A nice hot cup of coffee in the morning as opposed to drinking the cold coffee her husband left from the pot at 4 am would be nice. I’M NOT DIFFICULT!” ha! This all came about because we decided he couldn’t go buy her crystals (something she loves because it would overwhelm him and he would need a lavender bath to relax after).  Ah, how we grow, 20 years ago getting a gift for the house would have been a bad, very bad choice for him to make! But these days, please! [click to continue…]

Over the  years its been through many changes. But as of late,  I can’t seem to find my voice on here and I’m stuck. Should I delete all the posts and start fresh? I definitely don’t feel like the voice I use conveys who I am as a mom or small business owner. But maybe that’s a good thing and I’m sparing everyone.

I’m not sure what I’m even trying to say other than I’m stuck. Really, this blog is quite old. It was my very first blog and it started on BlogSpot. My oh my does was that so long ago now! I can still see the design in my head. Maybe that’s the answer, a complete overhaul in design…. Ack.

Being a parent and a dog owner and a business owner is exhausting! The easier things are around here, the happier I am in every department. Some solutions are easier than others such as buying a crockpot is cheaper than buying new flooring but it’s about that time and desperately overdue. What a strange comparison yet the situation I’m in.

Between the four kids and multiple pets that have been raised in this home over the years, I can honestly tell you that the carpet is trashed and I don’t even want to look at it anymore. So I narrowed down my choices to cork, laminate flooring or tile. Although I like the look of wood, I dismissed the idea long ago because it felt like it would be too much work and that’s the last thing I need – more work. [click to continue…]
