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.

Dusting Off the Ol' Blog

I couldn't let a whole two months go by...so I'm dusting off the keyboard and my brain. I've gotten quite a few spam comments on my last post, which is annoyingly hilarious. I'm thinking of turning back on the comment verification stuff again, even though it's not my favorite.

The last while has been incredibly busy. It just has. With the holidays, the kind of- sort of- moving in, the paperwork, and family life... the last few months have been insane.

Today I lost my iPhone in the house. I'm pretty sure it was in my sweatshirt pocket this morning in the car when I took the kids to the drop-off spot, and now I can't find it anywhere. And I really want to check the weather forecast. Lame, yes?

I have secret projects going on. I will reveal later. Maybe. My fingers are itching to type... but my lips are sealed for now. I feel like this spring will be a very productive time for me.

Did I mention that for church, I have a whole bunch of callings? I am Will's cub scout den leader (and he's the only one, so this doesn't really count), I still teach once a month in Relief Society (love it), and I for the past month I have not had to do the programs every week. In October I was put in the Stake Young Women presidency as the secretary, since I live so far from the "hub" of town and have the little kids still at home. I was surprised. I like the ladies I work with a lot. I try to just say things like, "I don't know..I'm just the secretary and I take notes and stuff..." but that doesn't always work. Luckily, because of distancee and the kids, I don't have to be to every event.

I have a picture of me and Ryan together. I hate my picture taken, generally. But I realized it's almost as if I don't exist. No photographic evidence of my existence, except as a child. Almost like the Sasquatch... there will be evidence of my existence, but it could all be questioned as a hoax unless there is some concrete evidence of my existence. Proof. I will get that picture off my camera and post it, so in the future my kids will remember what I looked like in my 30's. I'm half way done with that decade already. I'm not scared to get old, by the way. I look forward to it. Being young is overrated.

A list of things to remember to write about:

Christmas 2012
Music Class
Why Facebook is where I blog in mini...
Why I love my new oven/stove
The best white sandwich bread recipe...

And any other bits of randomness that come to my brain. I seriously got a full nights sleep last night, and now I can't think straight. I've learned to live in sleep deprivation mode (and I don't even have babies anymore!) and when I sleep good, I do things like lose my phone in my house. And I can't call it, because I don't have cell reception. I'm trying to figure out how to find it.


  1. Secret projects and a productive spring, hmm... I'm glad you ended up finding your phone.

  2. We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme
    in our community. Your site offered us with valuable info to work
    on. You have done an impressive job and our entire community will be thankful to
    My website > car insurance quote

  3. I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have
    something to contribute to the discussion. It is a result of the
    fire displayed in the post I read. And on this article "Dusting Off the Ol' Blog".
    I was excited enough to post a thought :-P I actually do have some questions for you if you
    don't mind. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of the responses appear like written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I'd like
    to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your public sites
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
