Hey all, it’s been a while. We have had so much happen in the past… how long has it been since I last updated here? Too long, that’s for sure. Let me say first that everyone at home is doing wonderfully. We have all kept busy with new projects, including venturing into raising quail, ducks, […]Read More Spring has Given Us Some Uncomfortable New Lessons
I am admittedly behind on my resolutions. A Christmas Eve electrical fire at home while on a trip out of state followed by illness after you return will do that to you (the house is fine, but MANY electronics have to be replaced… that’s another story). Like I have mentioned, our lives just do not […]Read More My 2018 Resolutions
One of the things we did while visiting Utah was visiting my husband’s therapist from his teens years. I will refer to her as P. She is an expert in special needs children and adults with her own program that focuses on retraining the brain to pay attention, absorb information, and keep that information. She has taught […]Read More We Have Answers!
Most parents allow television time for their kids, to some extent. That’s totally fine. As someone who is frequently doing something- chores, sewing, rabbit work, baking, whatever- I totally understand the need to give your kids something to keep them out of your hair for a while. We get touched out, overstimulated, overwhelmed, exhausted. I […]Read More Why I Decided to Ban My Daughter From Her Tablet (But Not My Son From His)
Raising rabbits sounds fantastic- who wouldn’t want to spend all day playing with bunnies? The reality, though, is that you will experience more sad days than one would expect. This morning was an example. Every morning, I feed my kids, then go outside and refresh waters and feed in all the rabbit cages. I started […]Read More A Hard Lesson Learned
This has been a great weekend! Beautiful weather (completely gray and overcast with temperatures below 75; just what I need to thrive), sewing projects completed, connections made, new additions to the bun family, and valuable learning experiences. First, I’d love to mention that Radagast’s babies are thriving. We did have one interesting incident… the bunny […]Read More My First Rabbit Show Experience and New Additions
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAFHUERLFHULLHFLKGFHUEHEWIUQGFEKJFBVHGHDUOFHDIGLHDFIGHJDFSPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPBUTTBUTTPOOP That is how I feel right now. I bit off more than I can chew. I have a ton of sewing projects. I didn’t realize how many gift exchanges I signed up for, and of course, I signed up for them all before we made last-minute plans to go to Utah for Xmas. Whoops. […]Read More 50 Sewn Gift Ideas (So You Can Stop Panicking Like I am)
It doesn’t. Ever. Really, that is a good thing. Business prevents a dull life. This past couple of weeks have been so packed, so crazy, and so busy… we tooootally forgot that Thanksgiving is this week. Whoops. Why so busy? Bunnies, kids, birthdays, and sewing, of course. On top of practicing math and reading, we were […]Read More I Don’t Know Why I Expect Life to Slow Down…
Remember how I said life doesn’t always go as planned? This month has been a constant reminder. Calypso, the Champagne D’Argent doe, has proven to be a terrible mother. This was not her first litter, either. Her previous owner told us that Calypso’s first litter went terribly, and honestly, that can happen with first time […]Read More October Doesn’t Slow Down
Frequently, we have to tell people that we are play it by ear type people. We have basically learned to expect the unexpected. Just earlier this month, we were ready to leave the house to head to Phoenix for a Scorpions/Megadeath show- then discovered it was cancelled that day, for instance. This week brought other […]Read More Life Does Not Go as Planned.
