About Me

My photo
45 year old partnered with the love of my life, with a 28 year old daughter, 23 year old step-son, 19 year old step-son, 16 year old step-daughter, a 9 year old step-son and a 4 1/2 year old son. I now have 5 male cats and 1 female bunny that I adore. I had to rehome 2 kitties last September and 2 kitties passed away in November so things have been sad this past year. I love contests as I'm sure you can tell. I also love tattoos, looking at other peoples' and getting my own (I've had 17). I met the man of my dreams, living right next door! We plan to get married this year and to homestead within the next 2 years.

School Days

Well, another summer has come and gone...where does the time go? I swear, time goes by faster with each passing year. Remember when you were a child and the summer seemed to last forever? Now, it seems like they just get out of school and they're back in again. School clothes, school books, school bags, lunches, homework...the list goes on. My oldest daughter is out of school but all my step-children are still attending...lots to buy for and the cost really adds up. It doesn't just stop with the materials and clothes at the beginning of the year either...the school always needs money for one thing or another and then there are the extra-curricular activities...it can all be a little overwhelming. I always said that my child was the most expensive thing in my life...and with the way the economy is today, it's so true but at least they make it all worthwhile.
