White Moose

There’s been a lot going on in my head lately and that’s why I’ve been slacking on the blog/Entrecard lately. My dd sent me some cool pics so I thought I’d pop one up real quick until I get a chance to get more time on here.

What Do You Consider Large?

A couple nights ago dh and I were discussing our trip this summer. I had been doing hotel research and noticed that many hotels’ prices were for 2 adults, 2 kids. Any more was extra. We were saying we’re gonna have to get used to that kind of stuff, since we’re planning on having 4 kids. To us, that doesn’t really seem like a...

Are You Crunching Your Spending?

I know a lot of people who have had to take furloughs at work and are cutting back on their spending. One of my friends recently sent me a great web site and I wanted to share it. It’s  got good budgeting tips, recipes, coupons, and gift ideas with mixes for all kinds of recipes. I found homemade marshmallows, nutri-grain bars and granola bars...

We Mapped our Road Trip!

As I’ve mentioned before, we’re planning a road trip out to Wyoming and Utah this summer. The kids and I are really excited. Dh is stressing. We’ve got 2 stops overnight on the way out there, around Indianapolis/Danville then in Omaha. I’m looking for a way to cut expenses. Same with on the way back. So my idea is to see if we have...

I have a weakish stomach. Certain body fluids really make me cringe, gag, dry heave, etc. Like my husband or kids or anyone else blowing their nose. Or seeing someone spit. Bloody noses. If it’s my kid (a little one) it’s easier. But once they hit 3-4 yrs old, it’s over for me. And if it’s someone else’s kid, forget it. Pets really get...

Weird and We Have a Crawler!!

Ok, 2 things today. Last night, dh got an IM from someone he didn’t know. It said, “u gonna pick up a bottle i’m ready.” So we were coming up with things it could be about…his mind went to a baby. “You gonna pick up the bottle (I left downstairs) I’m ready (with the baby, he’s hungry)” I thought a romantic dinner. “You gonna...

I was depressed last night so I called Lifeline. I got a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal. They got excited. They asked me if I could drive a truck. 😀

I’m Loving This Weather!

Yesterday I took the boys out to play. I put Dean down on a blanket with some toys and opened Pierce’s sandbox. They played for an hour before Dean wanted to be picked up. That’s a long time for a 9-month old!! It was great. I did some more yard work (raked branches) and then dd got off the bus. After a bit, dh...

I’m SOOO Sore!

My upper legs/butt are so sore today! It’s been so long since I’ve been sore I almost forgot I had muscles down there. Last night dh and I did a short (30 min) Wii Fit session. I did lunges, squats, sit-ups, push-ups, some yoga, jogging, and a few others. It didn’t help that earlier in the day I did some yard work. We’ve had...

Dear Husband’s Boss…

I know he’s smart. I know he’s a valuable asset to your company. I know there’s quite a few things that only he can do there. And I know he’s working on a major project you have going on. And that there’s more than one he has to do. But don’t you think you could send him home once in a while?  His curfew...
