Seasons, They are a Changin’

The season is changing from summer to fall and the seasons of life for us are also changing. I recently wrote about the realtor asking me to share 10 things about our house that would help the new owners. Our house wasn't listed for 36 hours and it had 5 showings and two offers. The two offers were within dollars of each other. One offer stood out. They had written a letter. A letter saying…

I Was Part of the 47%

This is the post where I talk about being reformed Liberal. There was a time in my life where I needed help from the government. I ended up living at home with my two small boys.

The Sexting Generation

Before I begin, this is NOT currently a problem in our home, but it is a problem in their generation. We are on our second round of teenagers. I am finding this second round a bit more daunting than the first. Let me tell you why. Cell phones! Our older two had them. Old flip style phones with texting. I don't think their first phones even had cameras. To get cell service at home you…

Freezing Store Bought Tomato Sauce

Freezing store bought tomato sauce? You don't say. Yes, yes you can freeze store bought tomato sauce. I buy my tomato sauce for tacos, spaghetti, and chili ect. in the Costco #10 size can. Unless I am feeding an Army I don't use all of the sauce in one meal. I use Rubbermaid style containers to store the sauce. It would probably save space to use freezer bags. This is how much I got from…
