A little less "hot mess" this school year...

I'd love to be just a little less "hot mess" this school year (if that's even possible).  I mean, I know I'm never going to dodge it completely....I'm married, have 3 children, 9 farm animals, a retail store and website so obviously it's just not in the cards for my life to have it together all of the time and that's ok with me.  However, being proactive sure does make life sail a little smoother!       My 2 favorite words are the secret to solving several of our first world mom problems... 1.  Organization and 2.  Efficiency    ...

You can get their address from the bottom of this blog post if you're up for an eye opening experience or just trying to avoid doing paperwork like I was (hind sign 20/20 I don't remember ever fearing for my life while doing paperwork, so maybe it's not so bad afterall).  I drive past this facility often and have taken my kids there to sell scrap metal and cans during...

3 legged find

3 legged find

For weeks I've been driving by and seeing these legs in a field on the way to my house . They caught my eye from the very first day it was put out there!   Are they throwing it out?
