Shame on Fisher Price


I realize having to recall a pro duct can cost thousands or more dollars but for a business who is supposed to be about children it took Consumer Reports pushing and pushing before they finally recalled this product that cause 100 infant deaths!!!

Feelings of emptiness


I was lost when my oldest son left for school, it had been him, his brother and me against the world for so long. We had gone through so much together, homelessness, loss, stability, over whelming happiness, from one end to the other. My boys where my best friends, and when one of them left, oh man.

Thankfully that was the same month my now husband found me again after 20 years. I made him wait two months before I was willing to go out with him because I was trying to adjust to my son being gone, not just find someone else to fill that void.

Now it’s been 5 years, my son has lived about an hour away since then, he has come home for the summer first then got his own place. I love coming down stairs in the morning to find he had been home and was doing laundry or wanted a place to rest before driving home. He has been with a girl named Blake now for, well I am not sure, a year, two years, around two I believe, and we love her to pieces.

Blake is good to him and you can tell he is just head over heels for her. Blake has gotten a job offer from Ralf Lauren in New York and a place in Boston. I know my son will follow her which ever job she chooses.

Knowing my son, my baby, will be moving out of state takes my breath! I want what is best for him, I am so proud of him and , like I said, I love Blake. I am terrified though, the big city, him being miles away from home, thinking about it makes every hair on every place on my body stand straight up!

I know it is inevitable, he has his own company and can run it from anywhere, makes enough to survive off and pay his way through school, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy to except.

My first love, my son.

Wiggle fun


First time I bought a wiggle waggle ball they sent a cheap thin plastic that broke as soon as he looked at it!!!! At Home Depot I saw an original and had to get it! He loves that thing, hasn’t gotten a hole in it yet at all which is amazing with his chewing habit! He chases it around and throws it up in the air.

I highly recommend one for your dog!!! The noises change a lot depending on the directions it is going.

This is Atlas approved!!!

Angelique tulips!!


I have not had much experience with gardening till I bought this land and started giving it a try. Things I have learned,

Don’t take clumps of flowers from anyone unless they are good with weeding. My mother in law has given me lots of plants and while I appreciate it I also have learned with flowers come weeds!! I have two different kinds that came from her garden that have totally taken over!!!

Don’t make multiple gardens unless you are prepared to take care of them all!!!

Use lots of mulch!

Starting from seeds is hard, bulbs on the other hand are pretty simple
