I usually don’t follow politics that closely.  Typically politicians will vote the way they want, and we find a way to make life work with the decisions they make.  Right now there are protests going on every day at the state capitol.  Gov. Scott Walker has introduced a bill that will strip unions of all […]



Busy Day!

I was more productive today at home than I have been in the last few weeks.  I finally got tired of the house looking as bad as it was.  I loved having it clean and picked up all the time.  It took effort to maintain, but not nearly as much to do the full clean […]




Before I get into Silverlicious, I’ll back up and recap Friday and the doctor appointments.  I was feeling fine Friday morning.  I called and cancelled my appointment since I felt it would have been a waste of time for the doctor to look at me.  Warren’s ears were still a bit cloudy.  We changed him […]



The Post without a Title

I was feeling pretty good yesterday.  Today is the opposite.  This afternoon my ears and throat started hurting.  As I type, it hurts to swallow.  Coughing also hurts.  I may take my special cough syrup tonight.  Part of me is wondering if I haven’t picked up strep somewhere. It was really challenging tonight.  Robert and […]

Quick Post

I wanted to stay on track of my frequent posting.  I am tried and it is time for bed, so this will be short.  I spent most of today dealing with a whiny, clingy, sick boy.  He’s had a cold for about 2 weeks and started running a fever this weekend.  I took him into […]



A Much Needed Day

Today was very much needed.  In the interest of full disclosure, I wasn’t looking forward to it yesterday.  I was still feeling pretty miserable and wasn’t sure how I would be feeling.  It is hard enough to take care of kids when you are sick.  Add in a sick little boy, and today wasn’t looking […]



Interesting Tidbit

Every night before bed, Laura says the Lord’s prayer and then does blessings for people.  Without fail, her blessings start with “Mommy, and Daddy, and Warren, and me.”  She will add in other people in her life as she thinks about them.  The past few nights she has started adding in Helen, Sammy, Sammy’s mom, […]
