I have GOT to simplify my life!

I cleaned out one of my kitchen cabinets today. And it scared me. Where did all this stuff come from? How on earth did I end up with 3 jars of Italian Seasoning, 2 jars of cinnamon, 2 cans of black pepper, etc. etc. etc. Why do I have a can of Fennel Seed? I …

In Which I Was Bribed.

My name is Audrey Lancho and I am inviting myself to write a guest post on my mother’s blog. You may know my mother as Debbie, Deb, that-crazy-lady-who-decided-to-have-more-kids, the alpaca farmer, or another of many alias. Yet, I know her first and foremost as Mom. Since Mom’s blog disproportionately represents her viewpoints almost every day, …

If he could send an e-mail AND write in complete sentences

If Wade (A.K.A “the hurricane” and/or “pint sized wrecking ball”) could send e-mails and write in complete sentences – it would go something like this: 9:03 AM From Wade: Hey dad! I hope U R having a good day! Hey listen…about your hammer. I’m really sorry about that. Moms making meatloaf for dinner tonight. 9:04 …

Random updates

A few updates and quick thoughts for this fine Saturday mornin’ FIRST: Notice my new blog design? Do you like it? I did this yesterday. Do you think I am Fickle? Did you know I got a comment awhile back telling me they like to come to my blog to see what I’ve changed this …

The Perfect Room verses Wrinkled Mommy style

I love looking at decorating photos. I do. They inspire me. But they also stress me out and make me not like my home anymore. Sometimes I feel defeated when I look at a perfect redone room someone has posted on their blog or on the Internet somewhere, and then look up at my room …

Just sharing some average home life stuff

I have been working outside helping David with the new dog lot. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate putting in posts? Well I do. My Internet modem crashed on Wednesday. I got so much done around the house – makes me wonder if I should limit my blogging and online presence because this …

Behind Closed Doors

If you are a busy mom, you already know the bathroom is a means to an escape. If only for just a minute or two. Or in my case when HUbunk is home, a time for him to take over and me to lock myself away and let him think I have “issues” when instead …

Being one with nature: I don’t like it!

This weekend confirmed why I am not the “outdoorsy” type. Because it may or may not have involved something like this. I have never been more thrilled to see one of these vehicles, either. 48 hours of no water. Not fun.

Alpaca Shearing: their day at the spa

Yesterday was quite an interesting day. A day I was looking forward to, because it was our first shearing experience with the Alpacas.  I could write a lot about this but think I’ll let the pictures do the story with maybe a blip here or there because I have trouble keeping my mouth shut. Oh …

Spring Break is to test your quality of parenting

Ahhhhhh, Spring Break. You gotta love it. Or not. Whoever came up with the idea of Spring Break any way? It HAD to be someone without kids. Now, let me defend that statement before I get labeled a child hater. I love my kids. Dearly. But come on! Spring Break? Why? I mean, we were …
