Help The Hutchinson’s Fundraiser

Provided by CoolFundraisingIdeas.net As you know, we have been working hard to get into the house for several months now. As the move in date has been pushed back, we have been faced with a bit more expenses than had we moved in right away, (i.e. not being able to do the budget plan for…

I want to apologize first and foremost to both my readers and my future self / family for not updating this as often as I’d hoped. It has been well over a month since I last posted here on WordPress and while I have tried to get some traction on Facebook with a bunch of…

“Clutter is simply delayed decisions” Stage 1 minimalism

As I go through each box of randomness, some from as long ago as the summer before I turned 18, I become more and more convinced that this is true, clutter is simply delayed decisions. With an overwhelming amount of clutter going back to childhood, I’ve never given myself the chance to be fully free…

We got the house! Almost…

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind! Spring and the extra light Daylight Savings brings, always gives me a little boost of extra energy that is severely lacking during the long Maine winters. Of course, that means Spring is also the time of year that I tend to overextend myself the most and this…

Asking for prayers <3

Gluten Free Baked Haddock

Dealing with anxiety nearly my entire life, I have tried many forms of…

My Struggle to Allow my Son to Self Wean Despite IGT

Cloth diapers? You mean those fabric squares you fold a million times and try not to hurt your baby while they squirm as you attempt to put a very large safety pin through? Breastfeeding? But I failed miserably at that with Shawn, do I *really* want to go through the pain and devastation when I…

Gertrude’s back!

​ When I don’t have a vehicle, I feel like I lose my lifeline to the world, and I feel like I am not as good of a mother. Between not being able to get out to things, having no one visit me, and being so overwhelmed/exhausted that I get frustrated more easily, not having…

I wasn’t prepared for that…

I promised to come back yesterday and talk about what I did in my living room, but when I woke up, and I decided to poke around on Facebook for the first time in months, my heart dropped… A friend of mine, the most amazing mom I know, who was pregnant with her last child,…

Goodbye 2016

I hate to say it but I am so glad Christmas is over! This year nothing came together the way I’d hoped and I felt so guilty over not doing anything besides putting up the tree and countdown calendar. I had so many ideas for making the holidays more special but with my mind elsewhere,…
