It is a lovely evening here in Estacada. My husband is outside in our gorgeous back yard playing or I should say practicing golf. It is soooo nice to have a property big enough for that. My eldest son, Jonathan isn't that interested in golf, so he was just out there hanging with his Dad. My daughters have been enjoying climbing trees and picking the newly ripening cherries. I am so glad they ... Read the Post
My Little one is still sick, my goodness, goodness, goodness.
Where is my Energy?
I think the energy fairy came down and zapped me of all my energy. Well, I guess it didn't help that Braxton began his day at 5:15 am.And then after a messy diaper change, I searched the house and found out we were OUT of diapers! So, my poor little boy had to either be potty trained or improvise. He did potty his pants twice, during the day.....but luckily no messies! I got Braxton down for a ... Read the Post

The Storm has Ceased
I am so very glad the storm is over! There was a weather warning of thunder and lightning and a possible tornado in Oregon, and that was kind of scary. The sky did get dark, and the thunder was louder than I have ever heard it. The rain came down in sheets, but now everything is calm out there.My husband took our sons to his parents house right before the storm, so that gave me a chance to do ... Read the Post
I have bouts of Depression and Insomnia
It seems that ever since I got home from camping last week, I have been in a terrible funk. I think the camping trip wore me out physically and mentally, because it just isn't my thing. Plus having to fetch my sun from the lakeshore and his terrible tantrums were so very exhausting. The good thing, however is that I lost five pounds by chasing after Braxton and never, I mean, never having time ... Read the Post
