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 […]

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 […]

Back to school!

School has kicked off for the older kids, and the husband has returned to work.  Being the stay at home wife to a professor means that I get to spend my summers with the entire family home home as well.  Let me tell you- it’s both great and terrible. 

I celebrate because I love.


So close…

It is the last few days of freedom for the kids, as school grows closer to beginning. In all honestly, I can’t wait. I love my kids, but my older kids love school and learning. Them heading to school is going to mean more time for me to get things done, though I’ll still have […]

Life lessons

We had a bit of a pet family tragedy on Monday. I consider myself a nice person, so when something like a dog with tags comes strolling into my yard, I feel obligated to find the owners.  If I didn’t, and later saw the dog hit by a car, I’d be really angry with myself. […]



Summer seems to be going by incredibly fast.  My birthday is in a few days, and that’s always the midpoint of summer in my mind.  It’s been a rather interesting summer.  Our area has been hit with some really hard storms, with a few nearby areas getting hit with tornadoes and microbursts.  Lots […]


Who needs a dryer? Apparently me since it’s been mostly rainy and cold making it impossible to keep up with laundry for 5.

I have a new dryer.  It seems crazy silly how excited I am to have a new dryer but my old dryer was from the 1960’s.  I kid you not.  The […]

Rinse. Repeat.

It’s been a rather hectic two weeks, with this weekend promising to be even worse.  The kids were home on Easter vacation, though my husband still had work himself.  Having the kids home is a blessing and a curse, particularly with the weather we’ve had.  Mother Nature can’t make up her mind.  We’ve fluctuated as […]

In which I return

Mr. Resetti says no, I can’t reset the week. Such a meanie.

What a crazy week.  That was probably the worst stomach virus I ever had.  And to add to the fun, one by one the kids were struck down as well, except Lilia (fingers crossed.)  I’d like to restart the week, but only […]

Not allowed.

What was supposed to be a nice week has turned into something else.  Of course I’m sick.  I think I’ve caught whatever flu the husband had last week.  Of course, there’s no “sick days” for mom.  Thank goodness the other two can take care of themselves.  How does one manage to take care of a […]
