Tis the Season to go Fishing, soon!

I have been a fisher since my early days of childhood, I was deemed my Dad’s fishing buddy. I swear I am no longer his fishing buddy simply because I always showed him up, usually catching a larger fish and so forth. Maybe it was just that time got busy, I grew older, we grew apart for a bit, I do not know. What I do know now is that my Dad is still a fisher and my sons wish to be! One year I bought a fishing license and so did my ex husband, we took them boys out […]

A Trip To the Pet Store

I am thankful that my children love animals so much but also understand the responsibility that comes when having a pet. You see, I took in pets in the past that I simply could not keep. Whether it was due to moving to a new place where pets were under no circumstances allowed or taking in a pure bred black lab puppy only to find out a puppy and two boys in diapers was not going to work out, I have learned that I will never again take in a pet without having the long term, life long commitment to […]

I Miss Card Games Before Bed Without Mood Switches

I have always been big on everyone sitting down to dinner together, it gives us time to discuss our days and really learn to communicate as a family but what do I do during bedtime routine when J is putting K down to sleep? Well that’s easy, Ki, Aj and I get together to play a game of cards. Recently we learned how to play Crazy Eights instead of our normal card games. For some reason, a card game has become one of the few things that Aj can play with us all that doesn’t send him into a throw […]

What Would You Grab If…

You had to leave your vehicle on the side of the road, not knowing if you would ever see it again? For me, it was all of my kids random toys, my $500 stroller {that I never use}, my umbrella stroller {again, that I never use}, the kids 3 booster seats and last but not least – my fishing license out of the glove-box. I thought grabbing my fishing license was a brilliant idea, after all if I never see this van again I may just want to go fishing to get over the fact that the transmission died going […]

CLOSED We Love Fish Tacos! Win a Vacation to Mexico & More Giveaway

I can honestly say I haven’t ever had a fish taco before I heard of this new campaign. Ortega and Gorton’s have become a perfect match for the “We Love Fish Tacos” contest. My family tried both the Crunchy Shrimp Tacos and the Crunchy Fish Tacos, why? Well because my daughter and I love shrimp and the “boys” of the house love their fish sticks.  I must say this was something interesting and brightened our culture a bit, because I guess the fish taco is a Mexican food and not one I have seen in our restaurants around here. I […]

FarmerDad is Taking Over

So as he strives to save the universe, OK, “FARM”, Farmerdad has taken many directions. Each and every one an adventure of it’s own! Some ideas seem to set flight while others just can’t be dragged to the launch pad. Those get put in a file….I mean “PILE” as notes, drawings and more! Then on those gloomy, rainy, snowy no fish biting days….hey, what’s this!? Well a couple of frozen days ago loading the family truckster wagon (a.k.a. the trooper) for to do a little fishing, managed to slip on the ice…crap! Yeah, that’s what I said, Sugar-Honey-Ice-Tea! That little […]

Tuna Is Healthy For You

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of HealthyTuna.com. All opinions are 100% mine. I asked my daughter today what her favorite dish that has healthy tuna in it was  and she stated Macaroni salad, and I have to agree. I call my macaroni salad “brain food” because I seem to play better at chess while eating it. No joke! It’s our household joke and I still think it’s hilarious! I make my macaroni salad with cooked elbow macaroni, tuna, onions and mayonnaise. My daughter doesn’t eat the onions in it but my three year old eats […]
