If you want something done right you have to do it yourself. In my case, if I want something done I have to do it myself. I have previously mentioned each of the Miracles of Christ are given a chore. This is their individual chore for two weeks. Normally, I find myself doing other peopleContinue reading “Laundry Quest”
Our T-ball season draws to a close. I am proud of the improvements my team made over this brief and unique season. If anything, I hope these troopers will take at least one thing they learned this year and apply it to their game as they grow as people and baseball players. There were plentyContinue reading “Heading for the Homestretch”
Drake wants Heineken and Jack Daniels. Taylor Swift wants Starbucks Grandes delivered to her before 11 a.m. Mariah Carey wanted bendy straws to go with her champagne. Every diva has their food demands when it comes to what it will take to get them to perform. They don’t even need to be an entertainer preparingContinue reading “Standard Fare”

We didn’t want to take the chance of the tree falling on our house, or worse, falling down on a child. We calledContinue reading “Larry the Tree”
I sing this to myself from time to time. A lot of pain could be avoided if the children could learn what “Close your eyes” means.
How are things at home? Here’s a little insight into our life.
Cleanliness is next to godliness. My children being clean are miracles of God. There are certain things the children here need to do. More often than not, whatever the task, I tell them the same thing: This can take 10 minutes or it can take three hours. Luckily, my children’s showers don’t take three hours.Continue reading “Water Torture”
