If you or someone you know is playing medicine roulette, please read and share this post. Knowledge is power & if it hadn't been for another SPED momma, I would have never know this test existed!  I've mentioned before that we've been playing medicine roulette with QMonster. It hasn't been easy and we have found [...]

Vacation: A Hot Mess

Vacation: A Hot Mess

Every year, JHub and I jet off to Las Vegas for some fun-filled adult time. One would think since I am on vacation, I would escape the Hot Messiness of my life...but no...even when I am kidless, I am still a hot freaking mess... JHub and I have had this trip planned for a while [...]

An Elf & Her Grand Idea

**Before I get to the hot messiness of this story, I am going to tell you a back story** So this past Christmas Santa was struggling to get Q the perfect "big gift".

A Magic Wand In Pill Form

A Magic Wand In Pill Form

A happy pill a day keeps the crazy momma away. Literally. Not even kidding. I'll admit, I have been on and off anxiety/anti-depressant meds for most of my adult life. I have, on more than one occasion, found myself overwhelmed, sad, or anxious. I know that I am a worrier and a stresser. I was [...]

Planning The Chaos

Let me tell you a little bit about my family. I am text book definition Type A.  I like plans made in advance, calendars, and physical pen & paper to-do lists. JHub is more Type B. He is spontaneous, can function without his calendar, and keeps his to-dos in his head. We both are busy [...]

Because This Is 35

Because This Is 35

On October 19 1982 JHub graced the world with his presence. October 19 2017 JHub turned 35. Every year on JHub's birthday, things get a little chaotic for whatever reason but this year...this year....well...it was a hot freaking mess.... The morning of JHub's birthday, I put his present by the fireplace. I strung up the [...]

Paper or Plastic?

Paper or Plastic?

185 minutes --the average amount of time I spend per week in the carpool line. 30 minutes -- the length of QMonster's drum lesson each week. 60 minutes -- the amount of time I am guessing I spend waiting at various places each month for miscellaneous things. This adds up to serious idle time each [...]
