#MMM Finally!

Manic Mommy Monday!

I'm joining in on a blog hop with The Gnome's Mom to share a little bit about the life I lead here. The Gnome's Mom is one of my favorite blogs to read and follow on a regular basis as well. If you're a blogger and would like to link up, feel free! And add us on Twitter with the hashtag #MMM

I won't know my scores for a couple weeks, however, I have submitted my transcription final. I am SO excited (and relieved) to have finally finished this course! I started it when Fuss was 5 months old. She is now 25 months. That means it took me 20 months to finish a course that should be able to be completed in 9 months. When I started, the advisor I had at the time told me that she knew of one person who finished in 6 months! A little too fast for my taste, but whatever floats your boat! Admittedly, I had some road blocks along the way. Fuss would cut a tooth or get sick; Hubby needed help immediately on a home project to make it safe for Fuss; computer glitches and crashes happened. Now, that it's done, I'm not sure where I'm going next. My hope is to be able to work from home and still take care of Fuss with the level of care and attention she needs (and expects). If I can't find a WAH job, I guess we'll take whatever steps are necessary to make it work, like we always do.

I, also, now have some tomato plants to put into "pots." We're actually using 5-gallon buckets for the moment. I can almost taste those nice, fresh, juicy tomatoes just thinking about it! In addition to that, I have the start of an herb garden that my MIL gave me for Mother's Day last year. It has rosemary and parsley still alive from last year, but I plan on adding some basil and a couple others soon. My MIL also just gave me a pot of oregano for Mother's Day! Since I have Beast, I have to be careful where I keep anything...he'll either eat it or pee on it. On the other hand, we have deer. Lots of 'em. And they eat EVERYTHING!! Apparently, they don't eat herbs, so I may be able to work with that. They will eat tomatoes. That means Hubby and I have to figure out a way to keep them at bay.

Naturally, Mother's Day was yesterday. We didn't do anything special. I made spaghetti for "dinner" and took a card and flower up to my MIL. Hubby got me a beautiful card, but he had to work so we didn't get to celebrate. I did get snuggles most of the day from Fuss though and that was really nice! I will be getting my mom her present sometime today since I didn't get to her yesterday.

That's it in a nutshell! 


  1. I have my first tomato on one of my plants, so exciting!

    1. You have no idea how bad I hate you right now! lol. Love fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes.
