I’m feeling totally blessed today

It's been a good day so far. Gavin's doing him best to drive me crazy with his incessant talking but I'm hanging in there. lol The boys are having a pretty good day as well. School went well and Elliott's excited because his class is going to see a movie tomorrow. That's pretty awesome for him. He even did his homework at school to get it out of the way.. Awesome job Elliott. ☺ Lizze was able to rest for a few hours while I was putting together a basic area when I can record my unboxing videos. As I get better at this, I'll get better equipment but for now, I can still get the job done. Two more sponsors have jumped on board today and I received about…


Awesome News

We received confirmation that everything will be up and running, if not now, in short order. Legoland is the main thing Gavin wished for and I was worried that might prove to be a problem. The only place I don't know about for sure is Kennedy Space Center. It would be awesome to go there but if it's not a huge deal. It's probably just the nerd in me that was really excited to see that place. 😁 We are officially a go for the end of the month and I know I'm excited. ☺ This trip is going to be so much fun for all of us. The only issue we still have to work out is how to keep Lemme, our genius ferret from being able to escape…


It really has been positive 

It's really been a positive day. My writings been on hold but I'm working on that. I felt amazing after walking this morning. I didn't plan on taking a nap today but Gavin went for his nap and I decided to take a power nap before having to get the boys from school.  I'm not sure what our plans are for the rest of the day, but we'll figure something out. 


I received some really awesome news tonight

I wanted to share some really amazing news. If you recall, I submitted my very first article to a company that hired me to write. This was basically a trial run and if all goes well, this could lead to more articles.  This is a big deal because this is really good money and great exposure for my blog.  I was really nervous because I really wasn't given much restriction and I wasn't sure what to expect.  As luck would have it, they absolutely loved my article and after one round of editing, it appears to be good to go. This is a pretty big company and it seems that I'm a good fit thus far.  When this article goes live, I'll be sharing the link and asking you all…

I have good news and bad news tonight

Today has been one of those days were it's truly been a mix bag. We've been blessed with some really positive events today. At the same time, there's some bad news as well. I think that's how life sorta balances everything out.  In fairness though, life has a pretty shitty track record for balancing things out for us, and a lot of other families.  I want to begin with the good news because it's a pretty big deal.  I had been talking about how things being tight this month and how we are adjusting to a significantly reduced grocery budget. This has had me really stressed out and scrambling to figure out our options. Last night, or rather very early this morning, my new advertising deal came through. I hadn't…


Here’s some GOOD NEWS

While yesterday was a trying day, there was some really awesome news. We got our car back from the shop. My brother was able to get the ignition removed and replaced but it wasn't easy. The new ignition works like a charm and I'm so grateful for his help. I also was to say a huge thank you to my parents as well. They were a huge help as well and Lizze and I are both very grateful for that... My triumphant return to the driving world comes in the nick of time because we have to get all the kids to the doctors in the late morning. This is one of those out of town trips that will take us all day and this wouldn't have been possible without…

Thank God for mornings like this

Yesterday was a tough day for me on many levels. I experienced intense feelings of fear, panic, disbelief, frustration, exhaustion, anger, resentment and lots of guilt.  The long day turned into a long night because Elliott woke up in pain and I'm pretty sure it was the result of the way he was sleeping.  He felt better after moving to the couch and falling asleep while I played with his hair.  Having barely survived that, I was so incredibly thankful for how well the morning went.  The boys were slow to get moving but once they did, the morning went well.  Emmett did his crocs and socks without much problem because he knew that once he got to school he could put on the super fuzzy slippers I bought him…


I have awesome news you’ll want to read

It's been a long day but there's been some positive things that have occurred and I'm happy to share them with all of you.  For starters, Emmett went to school without much hassle. He ended up having to wear in flip flops in weather that's far too cold but he went to school. We packed his socks and slippers, should he need them and he was only outside for a few seconds.  On the way home, it was colder than this morning and Emmett wore his slippers for me, without any issues.  Awesome sauce.. ☺  It's also important to note that while Elliott still gets unkind words thrown in his direction at school, there's been no further physical assaults. The significance of this cannot be overstated.  This is major good…
