The new neighbor

Our neighborhood is changing… Earlier this year, both of my neighbors had life altering events… One passed away, so her house went up for sale. And my other neighbor had dementia and was moved to a safer place of living. The first house sold to a lovely woman and her two children. The other house is being redone – to be rented out eventually. … Read More The new neighbor

Regret

I don’t have many fears. I am not afraid of heights, or going too fast. But I fear regretting something for the rest of my life. Making a decision that will live with me forever… you can’t turn back time. I don’t regret many things I have done. I don’t regret meeting my ex…my son’s father. With out meeting him, with out his lies… … Read More Regret

Custody arrangements

I have my son 11 months out of the year, which is amazing. But this month is the one month of the year that he visits his father in Indiana. (We live in New Mexico, so it’s pretty far.) It’s always hard to send my child off to see his father. I appreciate the fact that his father does see him in the summers … Read More Custody arrangements

Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

It’s irritating when people try to bring you down. It’s even more irritating when you realize you have been letting certain people make a negative impact in your life for far too long, with out speaking up for yourself, or the ones you love. I make it fairly obvious that I suffer from MDD (major depressive disorder) and a social anxiety disorder. Don’t let … Read More Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

My Top 10 Favorite Audible Books

At the beginning of each month I get a friendly notification that I have 1 audible credit, ready for me to use at the beginning of the month. Sometimes, I have a book I have been waiting on, and purchase it immediately, but other months I have to search the audible website for something new to listen to. I tweet out to my followers … Read More My Top 10 Favorite Audible Books

Making Shio Ramen – for the first time!

I made Shio Ramen, from a cook book! That cook book is “Simply Ramen” and you can buy it on amazon by clicking this link https://amzn.to/2VN4qeT. The book Simply Ramen was written by Amy Kimoto-Kahn. I am loving this cook book and it really is helping me understand how to make delicious Japanese Ramen, in my own home! So here we go! I will … Read More Making Shio Ramen – for the first time!

Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Well today is Valentine’s Day. My husband loved his gifts, as far as I can tell (I bought him some cool candles – don’t worry he likes candles) and I got him a blue tooth meat thermometer – yes he loved it! And I got him chocolates too! I got a waffle iron (YES I did want this, I actually asked for one), and … Read More Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Diet – Low Carb / Low sugar

Almost everyone has heard of the Keto diet – and how fast you can lose weight on it. And there are many misconceptions about how “healthy” or “not healthy” it is. I have tried Keto and I did lose weight but I had a very hard time finding foods I could eat since I do not eat certain meats, and I dislike certain foods. … Read More Diet – Low Carb / Low sugar

Bribing children to be good

I don’t bribe my son very often to be good, not with money or toys, but this week we tried some very cheap bribery. My son saw a cool $1.48 bath bomb at target and wanted it. He’s only 10, so a bath bomb would make taking a bath fun and he promised to be good at school. As you can see from previous … Read More Bribing children to be good

Daily life – Daily food logs for the baby

Well, it finally happened… I have decided to make a daily food log for my smallest child, Lily. She is the one I write about having FPIES (the food allergy) and I have kept mental notes of all the foods she can’t have but this past week she has had skin related allergy symptoms. This is new to us, because usually her food allergies … Read More Daily life – Daily food logs for the baby

Food Trialing… again

I am trying to expand my daughter’s food options. Every time I go to the baby food section of the store there are so many types of mixed baby foods for her to try, the problem is…she is allergic to so many different ingredients. Here is what she can’t have: Oats, Wheat, Rice, Broccoli, Pineapple, Turkey and Corn. (so far) Now I am looking … Read More Food Trialing… again
