About Time


I broke my cellphone, so I ordered a new one. Ridiculously, my password to WordPress would not work. After 12 days…voilá! Here I am!

Well, I have been minimizing like it’s nobody’s business. Two more bags of clothes out the door! How good it feels. Less stuff in the house. 

The biggest freedom has been the baby clothes…I saved evething from my first child, from newborn to 2T. My second wore it and received more of his own clothes, which I also kept.

They say 3rd time’s a charm. As soon as i notice that the clothes are not fitting, I wash them and put them in the bag. Off to Church where some other baby can look comfy cozy. It feels good to get rid of it and knowing that it will be helping someone else.

So grateful to be able to do so… So, this is my victory blog for tonight after almost 2 weeks of wanting to kill my WP account.

Sweet dreams my people!

Great 2017 Start?


I started this new year with a cold…I beat it, so all’s good. Baby has it, but Mama will take care of it and all will be well. 

Then we received some news… Apparently, our State found some error with my Hubs and his co-workers promotions. Hense, they are now considered temporary positions. Meanwhile, if they are to be demoted, they will lose seniority from their prior positions. While in their current position, they are not gaining any Seniority and those promoted after them will have greater seniority regardless of their lack of experience. But I’m positive it will all be resolved, right?

Following that, presents I ordered for 3 Kings Day, never showed up. So I had to trick the boys into thinking they come tomorrow morning so I could spend today shopping. At least we got it covered. 

Most current but not least stressful, while starting a fire in our fireplace, the vent must have been frozen shut, so smoke started coming inside the house and so did the flames. After the fire went out, I tried to open our windows, it broke. And although the fire died out before it caused real damage, there are scorched items, soot, and smoke smell in our home. Upside: the house is in one piece and so are we.

So, I am still going to say, it’s a great start to the year because we are healthy, we have each other and we have full bellies and shelter.

God is good! 

To a Good Year!!!

Get Rid of it 2017!!!


The weather outside is frightful… The south towns got slammed with snow. We have a lot of chills and winds. So, we stayed in, we stayed in, we stayed in…

We seemlessly did school work today (miracle),  the boys played with remote control cars (for hours) they received from Grandma and Papa. Then watched Scooby-Doo and Harry Potter. I forget how long the movie is, but I couldn’t back out after I absentmindedly said yes

So…I did what I have been doing (but not blogging)… Getting rid of things!!! 

So… For those who have not read before, I had posted Get Rid Of It!!! For a whole year, I aimed to get rid of something every day to get rid of clutter. Now…***GOOD WARNING*** IT GETS ADDICTING. 

Although, I didn’t get a chance to do it every single day (I have somewhat of a life you know😉). Some days I went through closets and drawers and was able to get rid of boxes of things, making up for lost time plus more.

So, sometimes I just need to do certain things… For example, the cabinet next to the bathroom. It was so cluttered and really, I had cleared it up a year or two ago, so it was driving me crazy. It doesn’t seem like much, but I got rid of two bags full of stuff. 

That is the second one… I thought, I can post this (I’m brilliant). Notice… Those are tickets to Disney on Ice that we went to last January. Reminds me that I should do that this year. We really enjoyed it. 

Then while my mind is going nuts about how I want to get rid of more and more and more. I turned into our freshly washed (not) laundry baskets. 

ONE LARGE BAG OF CLOTHES!!! OFF TO DONATION!!!

Yes, that is exciting! I am no longer attached to 500 baby items (must be a third baby over it type of thing). Plus bye-bye pregnancy clothes, plus bye clothes that I just bought but I lost more weight clothes. I feel accomplished.

I have to say, I’m a happy joy-joy person today. Which reminds me of Joyfully Mom who has the awesome blog Joyfull Inspirations. Check her out, her blog is full of recipies on Gluten Free goodness, healthy living and lots and lots of LOVE. I kid you NOT!!! You read her stuff even after a bad, horrible day and you wish you could grab her face and kiss it through the screen from her positivity dose.

Anyway, yeah…It is late and the man of the house shall be home soon, (I hope he brings some yummy food home cause he loves me lots).  So, I would love to give him my undivided attention and have a beer ready for him (because I love him lots).  

So, I’ll leave you with this…

Anything you do for anyone and yourself, do it with lots of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! 

L❤️VE…ME!

Something Sweet


For the first time in idk how long, I sat and drew. 

I was trying to draw a photo of my little guy, and I love it. I have always have had trouble drawing realistically, but I figured why not give it a try. At all, my notebook says…

And I love to draw. It felt great! I know it doesn’t look like my beautiful yummy boy, but I had fun drawing and I’ve been in a better mood all day. I think it’s because I did something for myself.
Here is the photo of my handsome boys… Soon to be 7, soon to be 5 and soon to be 1 in the next two months. Love their sweet faces.

Holiday Spending


To me, the holidays are stressful and full of unnecessary chaos. Every year I make a photo calendars and send cards because it’s the “polite thing to do”. I would have skipped them, but that wasn’t an option from my sweet husband who’s going to do them himself next time if he wants them done. 

We have people that we have to give to, but I am sick of going into debt during Christmas. It’s not the point of the holiday people. 

So we had to make a change. I decided to put the boys to work instead.

I usually buy ornaments $4 a piece. Instead, I had the boys make ornaments with popsicle sticks. I don’t even know how much we saved, but it was a lot.

We got the colored sticks and the boys even made some for Daddy, who was super excited.

They had fun, they put a lot of thought into them and even chose to whom they wanted to give them to. 

I also decided that instead of buying things, we would make coconut macaroons with chocolate inside. Everyone seemed to like them, so win-win, right?

Instead of spending money, I spent time with my boys, doing fun things for other people. Wether or not people really appreciate it, I don’t know. But I’m teaching the boys to do things for others rather than buy. When they get bigger, I will expand our ideas and do more. But for now, homemade cookies and ornament will be the thing. 

Any ideas you feel like sharing?

Local Draft


That is what my WP is full with. I have so many excuses as to why I haven’t been blogging, my main one being… Writer’s block, I start typing and blank. 

I have tons of things I can write about. I can log my weight loss, which really…I haven’t been losing because I’ve been stuffing my face and not exercising. I’m okay with it. Not complaining. 

I can write about the things I get rid of. Seriously, my house is a black whole. I get rid of a million things to make space, and my sweet husband brings a chair that covers half the house. But, I always forget to take photos, why? Because I don’t want to live with my phone in my hand. 

I can write about the food I’ve been making.. I made some awesome bruschetta and hummus with my new food processor that my wonderful guy got me for Christmas. But like I said, phone on hand.. Not lately. 

I can’t forget to mention that I keep just losing my phone for days on end. Why? Because I want freedom. I want to be beep free. Sometimes, I’d like a land line for old times sake. 

I can write about my children, but really, I’m just tired, comatose, exhausted. 

It’s all good though. Is 2017 now… HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE… I’m going to sleep. Sweet Dreams.
