Distractions and redeeming time

My little one squeaks for a bottle. I prepare the bottle, pick her up, wrap her in a blanket...and grab my phone... Why? Why have my phone. Well, since I am taking the time to sit down, I thought I should check my email, too. And Facebook. And maybe see if I have any moves ready on Words with Friends.So, Squeak drinks her bottle and falls asleep with a distracted mom. How sad. What a waste of time. Sickening.

Otherwise, we are staying so very busy with all these little ones added to the pot. Two 3 year olds, one 4 year old and one 5 year old Read More

Probably entirely useless ramblings….

Oh boy, do I have alot to say today! Guess I shouldn't have been silent all those days between postings First of all, I can't believe it! I got accepted into the TOS Marketing Class! Oh my goodness, I'm scared to death! I read Nancy Carter's blog post about when she was accepted into the class years ago. What an encouragement to know that she was so scared at first, too! So, the next month will be busy for me. Can I do it? I reckon I'll have to! It is exciting, but I hope I don't let anyone Read More
