This blog will be written by a stay at home mom/student. I am trying to enjoy every minute of life I get and raise my children to be happy with what we have been given. Anything written here will be by me, for my well being and piece of mind. I want to open other peoples eyes, and let them see that we can make it on less.

Update on life.

I had absolutely no idea how hard college classes would be. I am constantly in a struggle between homework and housework. I am blessed to have a Mother In Law who loves my children. You rock Rosemary!!! I am also blessed to have a best friend whom I trust with my Little Prissy Princess. Thanks Chastity!!! I have many other people whom I love and have been so supportive. I am a very lucky woman. I am ashamed to admit that lately I haven't been budgeting very well, I haven't gone into debt or anything, but I haven't been watching my grocery budget either. I even broke down and bought dryer sheets! That's right you read correctly I Mrs Hate to pollute the earth with all these used dryer sheets has bought some. They smell like lavender and vanilla, and I must admit that I quite enjoy not having static. The dryer balls did not rid my laundry of static so before you go and buy some thinking that they are sooo cool I want you to think about the amount of static in your laundry. If you have a lot of static I do not recommend that you purchase dryer balls. Hope everyone is good and healthy.
