Simple Musings

I am kinda sad we are going to be moving away from this lovely town home in Redmond 🙁 It is always so peaceful on the balcony, even the cats love watching the kids run back and forth.   However, it is time for us to be on our way to the next series in our lives together, Mark and I. We are getting a lovely house together! We are really excited to decorate, tend to, and make it ours…

Being a “Step”

Being a “Step”

I have to say one of the biggest struggles I have had in my recent years has been being a “step parent”. I do not want to be the kid’s mother, I do not want to take their mother’s place… honestly, I am not even sure I want to ever give birth to a child and ever be a “mother”.  But having these lovely kids in and out of my life has proven to be very emotionally challenging.  I love them…

Life, kids, and the future husband of my world :)

Life, kids, and the future husband of my world :)

Recently I have been around children a lot, working a lot, and just all over living life a lot. You see, Mark and I are getting a house, we have his kids every other weekend (plus other BONUS weekends that I LOVE with them), we do things with just us the other weekends, and I am now working day shift (Which is AWESOME). I love being home with him and the kids while they are here in the evenings. We…

Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Trying something new… soy protein powder.

Today at Trader Joe’s I broke down and just bought the HUGE container of soy protein powder. I have been looking for a while for something to help boost protein, but I just think all protein supplement things are NASTY and weird and gross and the texture is just HORRID!! BLEEGGGCCCKKK!!! I usually buy those single use packets of the non-dairy protein powder first before trying the WHOLE thing. That’s why it was hard to buy the whole thing… I…

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Face mask, face wash, body scrub and a cat named River.

Hello all! (listening to Mode by Bingo Players…. I REALLY LIKE THIS SONG!) The birds are awakening and I have yet to sleep. 🙁 I’m anxious, thinking too much, stressed out, freaking out over life and my job, and I was just unable to fall asleep much to the dismay of River and friends. 🙁  So what do I do at this hour of night when I can’t sleep? I find recipes or create them for face things. Tonight we…

Things to do :)

Things to do :)

Bulk grocery list. Since I’m starting a real nursing job I have been having a lot of ideas go through my brain about budgeting, things I want, things I am excited to start paying off, how I would like to see my life in the next year, and other adultish things. I just ate a huge bowl of oatmeal with peaches in it though.. so maybe all the healthiness of the oatmeal has mucked up my brain with ideas of…

Magnaminty, Scrubs, and generic life things

Magnaminty, Scrubs, and generic life things

Well, today has so far been a fun day 🙂 Woke up in a great mood, snuggled with River a bit, then went off to the gym. I finally brought my printer in. Hahahaha, I just have to find all the cords for it now because I need to scan items and send them into different organizations for name changes and such. Le sigh. On other news, I need my usual LUSH face mask today… Mask of Magnaminty 🙂 Everytime…
