February I hardly knew ye

February always seems to be a month that drags on, which is ironic because it has less days than any other month on the calendar. Maybe it’s because February knows it has a short life span so it tries to pack as much in as it can before succumbing to March’s lion vs. Show More Summary

What’s on the Needles? A Knitcrate Review

Not a Coincidence that #PARCC is CCRAP spelled backwards

This morning my third grade son’s teacher told me, “I feel like I’m on a leash. I just go in the direction that I’m being pulled.” I can’t even wrap my head around that statement. To be the person who is in charge of the education of...Show More Summary

2,015 Kisses

My husband may die of embarassment for telling you about this. At first it was just an excuse to get a kiss. He was engrossed in a movie and I was bored.

To NaNo or not to NaNo, that is the question

Every year I sign up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and every year I fail. In some way or another things, life, my own self doubt, gets in the way of me finishing my novel and seeing it in completion. If you’re not familar with NaNoWriMo, it’s a marathon writing event during November. Show More Summary

Sometimes Life is still like High School: Dramatic and Overrated.

ETA: there’s an update to this at the end (because just when I thought it was over, it’s clearly not). Where do I begin? That’s what any good writer asks before telling a story. The beginning is too far back. Right this minute doesn’t...Show More Summary

The wedding does not make the marriage

February 29th, 1996 started like any other day; I got up with Bug, who was just two months old, nursed him, played with him and dressed him. Brian ran out to handle a couple of errands.

We Tried it – Snackeez! (As seen on TV)

All summer long I was held prisoner to Peanut’s constant begging for everything he found on television (even the fake neck shelf commercial). Things caught his eye and he was immediately convinced that they would improve/change/or otherwise be a fun enhancement to his life. Show More Summary

Grabbing my parachute – Monday Motivation

I don’t believe that I was ever one to just jump into the unknown. I like to think that I had a little spark of impulsiveness in me but it’s mostly been in my temper. It wasn’t until I had kids that any kind of spontaneity I might have had died a fast painful death. […] The post Grabbing my parachute – Monday Motivation appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

School Administrators, Doctors and BS, Oh MY!

I am going to try and keep this fast and dirty but there’s so much on my mind that if I don’t get it off my mind, mah brain… it shall explode. Brian is back in the hospital.
