Dear July, don’t let the door hit ya…

I can’t say that I’m a bit sorry to see July go.  From the near impossibility of scheduling things with my clients to Brian’s in and out of the hospital and just the general rush of things has made me feel like standing at my front door...Show More Summary

12 Knitting hashtags for Instagram

Whenever I get PDD (project deficit disorder) with my knitting, I like to crawl instagram for ideas, inspiration and just to oogle other people’s yarn. Sing with me; “Oh instagram… How I love you, you are my favorite, my most favorite…”  Okay. Show More Summary

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. Three weeks ago he underwent a routine Arthoscopy to remove some scar tissue from the great deer […] The post School Administrators, Doctors and BS, Oh MY! appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

Not our first run around the {dog} park

When we first got Lily back in March, my Facebook feed was filled with other friends getting new puppies and navigating the journey of being a pet parent. For some of my friends this has been a first time experience and for others, it’s...Show More Summary

School Administrators, Doctors and Bullshit, Oh MY!

This crazy little (farm) life

Bug mowed the garden the other night. It was starting to look like a very mini wheat field and we decided it was time to mow it down. Unfortunately in the process we forgot to cut some of the garlic chives that had taken to seed a couple of years ago. Oh well, they’ll be […] The post This crazy little (farm) life appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

Understanding Seventy times Seven

From Kindergarten through part of the fifth grade I attended private school. I pretty much hated private school; I had few friends and I was picked on but the one thing I did like was learning about the Bible. I loved the bible stories and religion lessons. Show More Summary

Oh Alaska, I can’t quit you.

I don’t think I’ve traveled anywhere that has made me want and ache to return until this last month. At the end of April Brian and I took an impromptu trip to Anchorage, Alaska. Visiting Alaska has been a dream of his for a long time and with both of us in our last year […] The post Oh Alaska, I can’t quit you. appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

Because anniversary cake doesn’t travel well (a blog anniversary giveaway)

It’s easy to measure how far you’ve come or how time has passed when you’re a parent. You see the results in the eyes of your children. In their smiles and laughter. It’s easy to measure your age in the lines on your face and in the struggles you’ve overcome. Show More Summary

Five things to knit with sock yarn

I am not a {good} sock knitter. Don’t get me wrong, I love the concept of knitting my own socks and making crazy, brightly colored socks to wear throughout the winter and I know that Bebe {my crazy sock lover} would go GaGa over some wildly striped knee high socks but I just don’t have […] The post Five things to knit with sock yarn appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

Have “Thank You” notes gone the way of the dinosaur?

I used to get reader emails back when I was known as The Guilty Parent (and we used to call that Monday Morning Advice), but since the blog move, emails have been few and far between. I was happy to see this question show up in my email this weekend. Show More Summary

Mother’s Day in My Dreams with eBay mobile

Well, well, here you come again Mother’s Day. With your promise of a day off, breakfast in bed, flowers from children smelling of dirt from the flower garden where they dug up hand-picked your bouquet and the crafty presents from school that seems to get collected and stashed away like an episode of Hoarders.

A war to be waged against the big C

“Going to have a lump looked at tomorrow,” was the message I got through Facebook last week. There aren’t many conversations that you can start like that and have it turn out good. Immediately I felt like Wednesday had robbed me. Only...Show More Summary

Back in my driveway again

Diana Ross and the Supremes had a big hit with the song, Back in my arms again and this week, that song has been set on replay in my head. Sylvia has been sick, wounded. Dare I say, immobile. Last month she started to shake and shudder when I’d drive her and she was making […] The post Back in my driveway again appeared first on Chaos in the Country.

The hat (A love story)

Once upon a time there was a knitter. The knitter and her family lived out in the country where birds chirped and cows mooed. It was a quiet life. When she first learned to knit the knitter had dreams of filling her closets with many a knitted garment; scarves, cowls, blankets, afghans, table runners, washcloths, […]

Snow Selfies while roads are snow covered by Ohio Department of Transportation

I live on a state route in rural NE Ohio. It always feels like we are the last to be plowed by Ohio Department of Transportation. Sometimes we don’t see a snow plow or truck for a full day after a storm. I’ve posted numerous pictures this year of our snow via Instagram because this […]

I threw your pitch in the trash again today

I don’t ever want to give the impression that I’m somehow ungrateful for the wonderful opportunities I’ve received but the level of subpar pitches that are making their way into my inbox (and others’ from what I can wager) every day have reached an all-time high, forcing me to be the bad guy and tell […]

My #chocolatechallenge first week wrap up

It turns out that eating chocolate mindfully is harder than it looks. I’m glad to report that I survived my first week of the mindful eating chocolate challenge And I still have chocolate left. WOOT! For the first day or two whenever I chose to eat a piece of my chocolate, the only conscious decision I made was […]

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Knitters

Knitters get no respect. We are often seen as old ladies whiling away the hours in our rocking chairs knitting baby booties and afghans for the grandchildren. And while that’s partly correct, there are hundreds upon thousands of young and hip knitters out there. I like to think that I am one of them (pay […]

Say, Say, Say (What You Want…)

Last year, on the heels of summer’s end, I made the crazy decision to unbrand from The Guilty Parent and go back to Chaos in the Country. For those of you who don’t know, The Guilty Parent was not my first blog. I started this journey eight years ago with Chaos in the Country and […]
