Nutrition for Emergencies Among Other Things – Milkman

Now, I have chatted about being prepared for emergencies before. I've talked about what to keep in an emergency kit in our basement and for us it is mostly games and toys and lights and for us, water (we have well water). I have never really touched on food though. Sure, I have some things canned. … [Read more...]

Memories and Security with Master Lock

Now that we have settled on our new home and are moving in, the realization that school time is fast approaching comes.

Three Weeks of a Dental Hygeine Challenge

I have spent the last three weeks in a "dental hygeine challenge" if you will. Honestly, this should NOT have been a challenge at all. It makes it sound like I am not one for teeth brushing or good dental hygeine. That is not the case at all. But I will say, I am not the best at remembering to floss … [Read more...]

Prom – Remember Those Days?

4 Tricky Signs of Sleep Deprivation and Tips that Will Help You Rest Soundly

So, here is how a normal night goes at our house: Kids go to bed around 8. We head to be by around 10:30 and chat, read, or work for a little longer.

How Do You Feel About The Dentist?

  I hate the dentist. Yes, I realize that hate is a strong word and I should probably say that I hate the idea of the dentist. I don't actually hate the person that is my dentist. You see, one time, I was 7 years old. I distincly remember going to a dentist with my mom. I had to get a … [Read more...]
