Two Weeks In

So today marks the two week anniversary that M1, boytoy and Baby K moved in with me. Oh boy what a time it has been. No not all bad but so very chaotic it will take me a bit to get used to this new norm in the house. M2 has had the hardest go... Continue Reading →

Christmas Blues

I struggle a lot during the Christmas season and even when M1 is not off the wall it has always been hard to get through the holidays.
