Indoor Herb Garden

Toddler boy, in a black t-shirt, outside on a sunny day, standing behind small potted plants, while stuffing food into his mouth. There is evidence of jam on his face and hands.
We put our little plant babies outside for more sun
(despite our efforts, the lettuce and basil didn’t survive)

Cats be damned. Gus Gus eats my spring onions and makes himself sick, and nibbles on my pea shoots. Stitch eats my garlic. And has destroyed my spider plant. Not to mention my toddler topples everything over. It is a trial and error situation with my little indoor herb garden. My thumb is brown but someday it will be green-ish.

UPDATE: the next basil I started got dumped by the toddler. 3rd time’s a charm?


New Floors. DIY or Hire a Pro?

Lately I’ve been staying up way too late researching vinyl plank flooring options for our home. Our whole home. All 1520sf of it. With a very busy little one wanting to help with EVERYTHING, do we DIY or hire a pro?


Work from Home with a Toddler. Possibility or Pipe Dream?

Insta-moms that work from home, all smiles and optimistic with inspirational quotes and accomplishments, are plastered all over #mompreneur. I hate them.

Thank God it’s Finally Spring!

What a crazy couple of months!

It’s been a bit of a shit show, really. The weather in February had been absolutely brutal. And sure kept Lu on her toes 24/7. Sleep was a luxury. Thank God it’s finally spring!

Ever want to wipe the slate clean and start over?

I inadvertently did that when I changed host companies. So here we are, back at the beginning.
