Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #316

Messy Messy Fail - Oh what a week - not because we are all stuck together inside together, or because I have to homeschool my students.  No no - not because I have to provide instruction to my students.  But because there is a steady stream of ants trying to march away with my Christmas cactus in the library room.  Legit.  But we don't want to go out and buy ant traps.  Doh!

Tidy Victory - Made some delicious meals and baked goods this week - check out these links for some quick meals!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #315

Messy Messy Fail - Well, we are now home for an undetermined amount of time.  This is CRAZY!  Never in my wildest dreams did I think our everyday lives would be changed in an instant due to a virus.  I can't call this my own personal messy messy fail but perhaps one for our country or even our planet!  Are you home from work due to this?

Tidy Victory - We've received many warnings about stocking up on essential items, food products etc.  I am happy to report that due to my typical shopping we were pretty ready to go and did not have to purchase much extra.   I can say with confidence that in combination with items in the pantry, freezer and fridge  I could feed my family for a month, no problem-o!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #314

Messy Messy Fail - I think my oldest may have left the plastic bag where I had all of my ColorStreets sealed open and they all rather dried out :(.  I put them in a bag in the freezer and that seemed to help a bit.  It also helped that I blasted them with my hair dryer after I put them on.  Lesson learned - keep those babies sealed up!

Tidy Victory - Thankfully, I always keep an economy size of toilet paper and paper towels in stock, therefore I am not in any need to hoard either paper product :D

The Best Gift: A Watch by Jord

Messy Messy Fail - I have found spiders on my clothes, crawling across the table in front of me, however never in my hair until a few days ago!  I did a story on my Instagram sharing my experience - the arachnid literally creeped from the back of my head to the front while I was brushing my teeth - I did let out a little scream!

Tidy Victory - I have successfully sat down and read for 15 minutes two times in the last week - that's two more times than the last two YEARS!  One of my goals this year was to read more, and slowly but surely I am!

Happiness is Homemade Link Party #312

Messy Messy Fail - My poor Ruby Red Grapefruit (my Honda Pilot) - hit by a deer a few weeks ago and then a small but still damaging fender bender last week.  Can't catch a break!

Tidy Victory - I scored some sweet tickets to take our boys to see Blueman Group in Buffalo next weekend - they are going to LOVE it!  I have seen the show on trips with school groups many times and I still love seeing it!  Have you ever seen Blue Man Group?
