My Arch Nemesis: The Moving Box

This week has been a strange mixture of busyness that can only come from being overbooked, and laziness that can only come from being overworked with a side of toddlers to keep the stress flowing. My husband, Aaron, came home from Korea last Saturday night, and our little family of five had a sweet reunionContinue reading “My Arch Nemesis: The Moving Box”

Welcome, Introductions, & All That Jazz

If you’ve stumbled upon my site you’ve likely read the “About” section, so you know some basic information about me. I’m a mom, housewife, I like yarn, and blah blah blah.

“Miscellaneous” – A category introduction

I have a lot going on in my life that can fit into neat categories, and I’ve tried to structure my website and blog to have clear-cut categories. But not everything in my life needs a major category, even if it is a major undertaking. This isn’t a fitness blog, or a food blog, soContinue reading ““Miscellaneous” – A category introduction”
