Today I’m turning the blog over to cookbook author Francie Healey who recently launched her virtual book tour for Eat to Beat Alzheimer’s with WOW! Women on Writing (a publication for women for women writers that I’ve been a part of for years). Show More Summary
By now you know that kids (grown and young) have lost their minds over Pokémon Go, a Pokémon gaming app for smartphones and other devices. My oldest is one of those “lost his mind” people. Even though he’s 20 and living on his own, I’ve...Show More Summary
I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. Any jewelry I have isn’t for looks or fashion, it’s always about memories and people. This makes it hard sometimes to find the right kind of jewelry to pair with my day to day style. I like earrings and...Show More Summary
Full disclosure: I’m a huge Mindy Kaling fan. I could be her. Maybe. I mean, I want to. I wish I was. I at least wish I was as funny as she is. And so here is my conundrum: To tell you how much I loved this book and try to be as hilarious as […] The post Why Not Me by the laugh out loud funny Mindy Kaling (a review) appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
I’ve not done nearly as much knitting as I’d like to of late and it shows. I’m on edge and cranky. No one likes me when I’m cranky. I know without a doubt that it’s stress but right now I’m not sure I can change it. Sigh, what’s a knitter to do? I’ve kept up […] The post We Are Knitters Udon Blanket Kit Giveaway appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
When things strike a chord with me, I tend to be incapable of dropping it. This is one of those things. I’m not intending to offend – but if it happens then I have to think that the offended parties are such because what I say may strike...Show More Summary
Change is inevitable it seems. The only thing we are told is constant is death and taxes. These past nine months have been nothing short of stressful and heart wrenching. I still have passing moments where I want to throw in the towel. Show More Summary
What I have to say may or may not ruin some relationships here. Regardless, I’m about to take the road less traveled. What I’m hoping to accomplish is to offer another view point but not to insight more drama, hatred or fuel the fires that are already burning. Show More Summary
My parents always told me that when you break something you either fix it or pay for it. There was never a “you have to fix AND pay for it,” there was always just one or the other. I’m trying to do the fixing but I’m afraid that Peanut is the one paying. Two months into […] The post Broken appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
Sorry for that title. I was listening to Meghan Trainor’s “All about that Bass” and for some reason yarn just got stuck in my head (as it typically does). In my never-ending quest to find new and awesome yarns, designers and notionsShow More Summary
When I first announced that we were moving to Alaska, I got a ton of questions. At that time, I rounded up the most popular ones up and tried to answer all of those burning questions. But the questions haven’t really stopped; especially now that we’re here. Show More Summary
I remember when the kids were small – as soon as they could walk about, they were on the move! That new found mobility was a chance to get into everything. Corralling them became a challenge. (Especially when Bebe and Shorty were small;...Show More Summary
I have a lot of books ya’ll. Moving across the country hasn’t stopped me from buying, borrowing, or hoarding books (it’s an art form, don’t judge me). But my earlier confessed plans requires I actually do something with those plans.Show More Summary
Have you ever felt just really blah about cooking pork roast in the crockpot (or any kind of roast really)? To me it sometimes feels so very… been there, done that, own the coffee mug. I love my crockpot but sometimes I just feel like I’ve cooked just about everything I can in it. Recipes like […] The post Sweet and Tangy Pork Roast appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
You’ve probably read Sarah Anderson’s comics online and found yourself head nodding in agreement or giggling one minute and feeling all the feels the next over her too true to everyday life illustrations. If that’s the case then you’ll love Sarah Anderson’s first book, Adulthood is a Myth. Show More Summary
January is always a busy month for me; two boys, two birthdays, 20 days apart so I tend to let those “new year, new you” posts slip by the wayside until I get past the calamity that is January. It’s really a month of recovery and introspection and I use it to the fullest. Show More Summary
Today is the day you all get to kick me. I’ve fielded all the questions of “why” and the only thing I can tell you (which will make sense later on) is that I wasn’t thinking of myself. Monday did not turn out at all the way I wanted it to. I had a very […] The post Non Compliance and Conversation Pieces appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
This week I had to ground Peanut for reasons that aren’t important. I took away his tablet and ipod, laid down the no gaming, no tv, no digital anything laws. Like any good mom would, I supplied him with a list of things he could do while he was grounded, including a number of chores. […] The post Play out the boredom with Pley appeared first on Chaos in the Country.
If there were awards for the worst communicator in 2015, I think I’d probably be a shoe-in. I haven’t exactly held up my end of the bargain in regards to being personal and keeping people in the loop around here. However in my defense...Show More Summary
This christmas has been so different from past years that I don’t know where to begin. I was ready for Christmas in record time this year (which should’ve been my first red flag) – I wasn’t last minute shopping or picking up endless stocking stuffers. Show More Summary
