Blogging is a second job, no question. I put in nearly full-time hours, between weeknights and weekends. The difference between this second job and your typical second job, is that I really love doing it.
I’m a yard sale junkie! I love going to them and I am so excited that winter is over and yard sale season has begun! We went to a bunch of yard and estate sales Saturday and found lots of treasures!
Around our house, handling chores has been a tricky thing. One, they’re never ending, and two, I was conflicted on how to handle them. I wanted to give our kids a way to earn money so they can learn how to save, give, and responsibly spend, but I didn’t want to just give them money for existing. (Though if someone wants to pay me for simply existing I’d be happy to oblige.) I also wanted some chores to be done without payment because they live here and should contribute to the family so I came up with this work for hire diy chore chart.
It’s spring! Or, it’s still chilly outside, but you’re wishfully imagining the birds singing and flowers blooming. Regardless of the weather outside, isn’t a bouquet better when it comes from your little love’s creative hands than from the overly-expensive florist in town? I mean, you can chop down your freshly sprung garden – but do you really want to look at ragged stems all summer? A few years ago I started making teeny tiny paper flowers. They were so sweetly delicate and made the perfect adornment to baby shower gift wrap or just about anything else that I could glue them on. Over-sizing the flowers (taking up a standard-sized piece of printer paper) makes for an easy kids’ craft that your child can turn into a Mother’s Day present or simply make just for art’s sake.

This past weekend was a weekend of ups and downs for our family. It was a typical, busy weekend just as most of our weekends are. Along with the hustle and bustle of life, sometimes we forget how truly blessed we are and to give thanks for the real blessings in life, our family, friends, health and wellness.
