Breaking up with Facebook
I decided that it’s time for me to kick Facebook to the curb.  I’ve toyed with the idea a few times before, but it never stuck.  I mean, I run a business so I need Facebook, right?  And my homeschool group has amazing resources.  And my team group!  Support is SOOO crucial!  And I’m an admin ...

Beef Gravy Over Rice

Beef Gravy Over Rice
There’s just no way to photograph this and make it look tasty, especially with photography skills as lacking as mine.  So you’ll just have to trust me that it’s super tasty!  It’s also really easy to make.  There were no leftovers, and the kids ended up eating more than hubby and I, so it’s totally kid-friendly ...

Slow down…
It has been a whirlwind past few weeks.  I’m wearing many hats right now and it seems everything needed to happen at the same time.  There are to-do lists, deadlines, and piles of unfolded laundry for proof.  Top it off with a nasty head/chest cold and something had to give.

Daily anchors
I mentioned in my previous post that having a to-do list anchors me to the tasks I need to accomplish to keep the house running smooth-ish.  Visually I can see what has been done, and where to focus my energy. Daily “routines” are another anchor for me.  I use quotes because our routine is quite loose, ...

To Do List

Quick Fixes
  I don’t know about you, but I have had zero free time lately.  On top of that, I have all of these projects that I want to do but they are involved – most need at least an hour, if not an afternoon, to complete.  So I’m sitting here, wallowing in the fact that my ...

Homestead Management
  One thing that I sorely lack is a natural ability to keep up the homestead, and it is often a struggle for me to maintain control.  Dishes start piling up and we’re living out of laundry baskets because I haven’t folded or put away anything.  Then what ends up happening is I go online ...
