Bats friend or foe?

My son woke me up in the middle of the night said he had a BAT in his room!!! Wait,! What!!!! We put a towel under the door since my husband is not home and my son was on the couch.

This morning I walk into the other room and my cats are playing with a bat on the stairs!!

I don’t know if it’s the same bat or not but it is winter time here in Maine!! They should be hibernating!

Do I have a colony in my house???

I’m freaking out here friends!

my thoughts, Parents

2 years and a huge win

I have talked about my husband, his kids and ex wife before. Horrible human being, major parental alienation, narcissistic alcoholic, daddy money spoiled like crazy, that about sums that up, now that you are caught up,

I started helping my husband stand up to her when we met, when we went to court to ask for more time with them it was decided he should do therapy with them to see about fixing his relationship with them. His younger son actually is great, no fixing needed but his older boy hates him cause of mom. She refused to allow him in with the therapist alone, he is 15. Every one step forward and mom brought him two steps back.

With child support changes they were in and out of court and finally my husband put his foot down and said I have asked for two years and I want it done. We had to go to trial because she refused everything. He told the judge, we have shared custody but she makes all the rules, I see my son 54 out of 365 days a year!

We got everything we asked for!! We won! We had to wait a week for it to come by mail but we WON!! She had a lawyer even , we did not. We didn’t get to use all the parental alienation proof we had but we still won.

Christmas came early!!!

Bless all the children

making a business, my thoughts, organized, photography


My first paid project was a sign for a friends growing business, I am so glad it is finally done! Never have I been so stressed out and made so many mistakes!

The font she chose was a writing font not a cutting font and after being blown up it looked horrible.

She wanted to get rid of the blotchiness and I had to delete each little piece individually! Then it didn’t have capital letters so I made those, I had to wait for my husband to get the wood ready and first he wanted me to use a white plastic type wood that wood last very well, but it had lines on the other side and I needed both sides so we went back to plywood. The words are curved and working with a lot larger of an area than I am used to , I put it on crooked the first time! Ugh! After using less sticky contact paper and another set of hands I got the other side on straight. I adjusted the size of cameras to compensate for it being more spread out than the original design. Now I realize it’s not straight on but , can you tell the difference?

my thoughts

Fuzz in my lens???

I had to upgrade my phone , only to an iPhone 7 , and being the cheapskate that I am I bought off EBay. For less than 200 it was worth it , till I noticed fuzz or hair in my camera lens.

Messaging back and forth with the seller and it was clear they would not send me a new one till they got this one back which would mean about a week with out a phone. That didn’t work for me and then it had been 30 days and bla bla bla. I didn’t have another 200 to buy a new one first then be reimbursed, so now I am left with hoping I can get a reasonable price to have someone open it and clean out the fuzz.

my thoughts, Parents

It does exist

True Love, Perfect connection, Knowing he or she is the One! They do exist.

After 3 years together I am still in the honeymoon phase!! I don’t see it ever ending, we love to be together- have gone a week of every minute together and it was great! We value each other’s opinion and strengths as much as faults. He is strong where I am weak. We do not fight, and barely argue. We both have been abused and treated badly in our past so we appreciate everything about each other. We tell each other everything, he is my other half.

People say marriage is work and maybe someday it will be but for now, living him is the easiest thing I have ever done.

I believe it can exist for everyone.

my thoughts


We loose power a lot and it makes you realize how dependent we have become. When I first get up I need to move slow, I make my coffee , take my handful of meds and then sit for a bit to wait for it all to kick in. I play games on my tablet or watch tv until I can move with out straining. When the power goes out it’s not just that we loose electricity but we loose water and heat as well, I am so unprepared!! We don’t have jugs of water around so it’s not just me but my animals going with out this morning.

I feel like a horrible fur baby mom!!!

Inventory? Sell?

Trying to make things to sell is not the easiest thing with my constant self doubt and need for perfection! I have decided to turn my front porch into a for sale area for the winter, I can put my lawn sale things out to mix in with the things I make and buy to resell. It’s not a huge space and it’s not heated but gets full sun all day and is recently completely insulated!

Could this be the start of a small local business? I don’t know but I guess I have to start somewhere!
