This Week

Has been chaotic.
The kids returned to school. New month,new year. 
    My foster kiddos returned To their bio mom Friday.  It's amazing how much stuff one accumulates in such a short period of time. I'm glad I picked up boxes from work. I hope that bio mom does what she needs to- these kuds are so sweet. It's sad because the older boys want their mom to BE a mom. Not take off and be gone all night partying.
   I have been working on cleaning out each section of the house. I had one large load that the boys and I took to the thrift store. I was so focused on getting the foster kiddos stuff together, I didn't do as much as I wanted. New week, so I can begin to focus on these tasks again.
   I am already planning my garden. I will start my seeds in a couple weeks. I am going to make a removable green house cover to protect the seedlings once I transplant them. I know I am going to start lettuce,spinach,onions, and beets. I may try turnips as well.
  I have several projects planned. I am planning on making hooded sweatshirts for the kids. I am also working on wood shim pallets as decorations. I have most the shims glued, I just have to begin painting.
  I need to touch up the walls in the living room. I have the paint, I just need to do it!


  1. It sounds like you've got a lot planned! Good luck with all of it. :D I love that you're starting seeds soon. I so want a garden and can't wait until we live in a house so that I can plant one.

    1. I am excited to begin to garden. The hoop houses look super easy to construct. I picked up beet and parsley seeds today. I already have lettuce and carrots.
