Relaxing Summer? What’s That?

Summer is supposed to be about relaxing, right? Not for us! Yesterday's Summer Solstice may have been the official start to Summer, but I definitely didn't have a chance to slow down and relax. I never imagined I would be a newly homeschooling mother at the same time my home business would see huge growth. The hours have been long, but I'm hustling along, doing my best to stay organized and on track. June has been full of birthdays, including my own newly 4 year old, Father's Day, and graduations. I between all the events, I've split my time between our choice to begin homeschooling in June … [Read more...]

We’re Homeschooling! & A Free Learning Activity

School is coming to an end, and that entails a really big change for us. In 12 days we will officially become a homeschooling family. I will not go into detail right now about the issues we have faced this year, but we have been extremely unhappy with our daughter's educational experience. My husband was very resistant to homeschooling when I first brought it up before our daughter started school. That's a far cry from my husband who begged me to pull her out of the system weeks ago, but my daughter wanted to finish the year with her friends. I have spent the last few weeks preparing for … [Read more...]

Sorry Not Sorry & JennShuey Designs

Hello blog. I'm so sorry to have neglected you, but 2017 got off to a really busy start. I am a blogger, but blogging isn't my business. Blogging is my hobby. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes I want to walk away for a little while, but in the end, I find my way back to the blog. There's just something about putting words down that is a calming release no matter what the subject matter may be, but it doesn't pay the bills.

Hasbro Joy For All Companion Pets Provide Companions for the Elderly

Some of my favorite memories with my Papa from my childhood involve us sitting at the kitchen table playing board games. He introduced me to Monopoly and taught me how to manage money through the game. We spent hours playing Yahtzee, and Friday nights with my Grandparents and a Scrabble board extended my vocabulary. My Grandparents had a closet stacked full of Hasbro games, so there was always something to play with my Papa. Hasbro has a tradition of creating great play experiences, and the new Joy For All brand is a wonderful addition to the company. When we weren't playing board games, I … [Read more...]

Holiday Gift Guides, Threenager Mayhem, and the Frazzled Mama

I do believe my Keurig hates me right now. I have slept much too little this week, drank way too much coffee, and my accomplishments are waning. I have been in a rush to have Brainfoggles' 2016 Holiday Gift Guide & Giveaway Extravaganza ready to kick off on November 1. I have some really cool stuff I can't wait to share with you guy, and I'm giving away stuff, too! Of course, this is also the week both of my kids got their flu shots and subsequently, high fevers. Sick kids and busy work days don't mix well. Class Halloween party food had to be made (we won't even touch base on that … [Read more...]
