Disaster in the Washer!!!

So it is safe to say it has been a crazy couple of days. I’m stressed out, not sleeping well and the thought of food makes me nauseous. Because of this I have been in a half fog for probably the last 24 hours.

The house work was slacking and my daughter was being clingy which wasn’t helping. I had called my mom to see if she could come over to help play with the kids… A.k.a deal with my daughters neediness while I tried to clean the floors.

In the meantime the plan was to bust through a few loads of laundry since it only took a minute to throw it from machine to machine, then I could fold it while Giada took her nap and I got Nicholas to sit down and watch a movie.

I started with the kids laundry. I threw the first 1/2 of it in and went back to the kids. An hour later I went to toss it in the dryer when I opened the door to the horror that would last me the good part of the rest of the day… Continue reading

What to expect…

Whats the point? The reason(s) I’m here talking for all to see…

I will talk about my kids A LOT! The happy times and stressful times. You’ll get it all.

Cooking- I am Gluten Intolerant and on a Gluten Free diet. My daughter Giada has an intolerance to dairy. For that reason and others I will get into later I have her on a Gluten Free and Casein Free diet. I plan to share favorite recipes and products. With dietary restrictions like this I know there will be times I will try something that doesn’t work. Ill share that too.

Organization- with a busy life, organization is the key. I use to call myself the most unorganized organized person ever but over the years and after the birth of each of my children my type A personality has little by little gone into overdrive. And dare I say it is my OCD side and anal retentive side that keeps my home in 1 piece.

Cleaning- having 2 kids (ages 3.5 and 1.5), a husband and a dog cleaning is an every hour thing.

Being Crafty- since becoming a Stay at Home Mom I have started to try and reach the crafty side of my personality… Making tutus for my daughter, projects for my son, DYI for the house and so on.

Weight loss- I have recently lost a bunch of weight. 51 lbs in the last few months, 60 lbs from my all time high. I will continue to document my weight loss here and Twitter.

And much much more.
