Summer Vacation

Yes, it’s been like…ages! I’m still here, but it’s not big surprise that life takes over and blogging frankly gets put on the back burner. I’m not one of those super awesome bloggers that get paid! I did however, change the theme and look of the blog, did a few updates here and there, and […]

Gaming and Anime talk

It’s been a bit since I’ve been able to talk FFXIV.  Yes, I still play, and that playing is still almost nightly after the kids are in bed.  The husband and I have almost completely stopped watching TV.  With the exception of making sure we finished Jessica Jones (which I looooved by the way.) I […]


Anna doll that I’m so psyched to give to Mei.

I ordered a cute Anna from Frozen doll for Mei, as well as a stuffed Sven.  I even picked up a Kristoff doll for the son of one of my friends.  And the best part?  The dolls were on sale, on top of me […]

Sugar Coma

It’s the day after Halloween, and that feeling of another holiday done and survived.  We aren’t really in a sugar coma- believe it or not, my kids are pretty practical when it comes to candy.  They both know stomachaches suck, and vomiting is worse.  Not to say they ate a lot more candy than I […]

Halloween semi-DIY

Today starts the series of costume wearing for three days for the kids.  Liam has a costume party with his karate class tonight, and then the kids have their classroom Halloween party.  Then there’s Halloween itself.  Today should be super busy- I’m making Halloween cookie cut outs for their classroom party, and that’s time consuming.  […]

Musical fun times

Ah, it’s so good to have my two older kids back at school.  It’s back to quieter mornings, just mom and Mei.

My kids are really into “Teen Titans, go!” at the moment.  It think it’s a kid thing, because I recall my sister doing the same, and I probably did as well, but man…kids […]

Hoppy Easter

The eggs…not as geeky as last year, but I like them.

This year turned into a fairly relaxed easter.  We did the usual Easter Eggs, and while I wanted to do natural dyes, I didn’t have the time to commit, and stuck to the usual dyes. The kids don’t really care, they just like […]


This is so true.  I’d say Mei does most of this still. Though I save time by not putting dry clothes in the dryer.  It’s a time saver.  Sometimes I just don’t take clothes out of the dryer at all.  Sometimes I don’t take them out of the washer…that’s not a time saver though. […]

Vacation time!

It’s President’s Day week, which means no school for my kids for an entire week.  This isn’t too bad.  The two older ones just want to play minecraft all day, and Mei just likes having them home to pester and play with.  The only annoyance is more whenever the kids touch anything that Mei had/wanted/saw…you […]

O Christmas Tree, part 2

Mei was amused by the ornaments.

Sunday was a fun day of relaxing, and putting ornaments on the tree.  All the kids were upstairs when I brought the box out, but I swear, it was as if they had some sort of Christmas Tree senses and they tingled the moment I opened a box. […]
