Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Crazy Month

It has been... a crazy month. Ryan went back to work, got a medal of valor award, got hammered at work the next day with 4 major injury crashes (one ended up being a fatal)...and then there is the normal craziness that is house and kids. Real soon, really, really soon, I will be able to cross that "house" part off the list. Once we get something of a normal life with the house, even if it's not 100% done, I will stop talking about it so much. The trailer is emanating a noxious smell... like something died somewhere. Or some food product got into a place it shouldn't have, and it's awful.

Anyway, I will post more next week. We have the next couple of days to get through. My birthday is coming up. I think I'll celebrate by cleaning the house. Yay me!

Also, in my neurological psychosis that is me, I have pin pointed one reason that I keep giving up on getting back in shape. Drum roll, please..................................................................

It's because I don't believe that I will get back in shape. I've never been out of shape. Ever. (I don't count the four years being pregnant/post partum.) Even after each kid I bounced back into great shape. (Wish I would have appreciated it/known it then!) Then, I turned 32. The last two years have not been kind. Actually, I haven't been kind to myself. Anyway, I realized last night that I don't believe my love handles will shrink. It's weird. I'm going to put myself to the test and see if they do. Will they?

A Picture of Ed's Graduation

So, I was looking through my camera roll on my phone and came across this. Jessie took it, and I didn't know she did. I was HOPING she took a picture, but she had switched camera apps, so I didn't see this one. It's scary how fast a small fry picks up on the whole iPhone stuff.

Any way, here is the graduate! Next time he graduates he will be taller than me, I'm sure.

Funny from Jessie

I just remembered something funny that Jessie said on the Sunday Ryan got shot. She was excited to stay with Sarah. Sarah came in and told Jessie they were going to have pink pancakes for breakfast. Jessie says, "Oh- I'm a great hog pancaker!"

The next day she also ate a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger from Jack in the Box. The whole thing.
