I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Slugs in my Dryer and Between my Toes

I can’t think of many things more disgusting than slugs. Some might not consider the Shenandoah Valley to be “The South” but this Damn Yankee sure does! There are very few days when slugs are not sliming around my yard. Winter, spring, summer and fall, slugs can be found. I hate slugs. Hate is...

Oh The Things I Do

For the majority of the past month, our house has been a sick one, and I don’t think it is going to end anytime soon. I think it actually started just over a month ago when Wee Nut got croup again and E Nut was home sick. E Nut ended up with strep a...

The Story of the 2nd November Surprise, and She Nut’s 4 Month Check Up

Last week I took She Nut in for her 4 month well baby visit. I can’t believe that she is 4 months old already! Her excessive drooling makes me wonder if she is teething already and she is ready to start trying out a bit of rice cereal mixed with breast milk. Yumm! She...

Things like orange and pink sun sets and streaks of colorful clouds. Things like cinnamon in my coffee and nuts in my ice cream. Things like my DVR...

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

This week has been full of ups and downs. I had a hard time being Thankful today, but I am pulling myself together and looking at the light at the end of the tunnel and not the muck on the bottom of my shoes that has been holding me down. On a sad note,...

Wondering

When I find disposable diapers in the laundry, I wonder if I threw the diaper in the laundry and the clothes in the garbage…or if I am so used to cloth diapers that I just head for the laundry room no matter what? As E Nut got caught trying to take a lightsaber to...

A great way to condition your furniture and keep it free of dust at the same time is to make your own Furniture Polish. I didn’t like the harsh chemical smell of the store bought furniture polish, so for years, I used only soap and water to clean the dust off of my furniture,...
