So many changes..

First I cant believe it has been over a year since I wrote. And ALOT has happened. For starters, around this time last year, December 2 to be exact, we found out we were pregnant with our now 6 month old. Talk about a shock! I was on the pill, but apparently failed to take them like I was supposed to, bad memory and life getting in the way. Six months later he was born. He was 6 weeks early, but healthy as can be. Things were going good.... then came August. We made a trip home, and on the way back, the husband wrecked his motorcycle. So between getting him healed up, Little Man getting bigger, and the 7 year old.... being a 7 year old. Things have been busy. In future posts, I will go into more detail about Little Mans birth as well as the husbands accident, but for now, I am back, and will try to remain current on here, as much as possible.

Short update and idea

So due to some unforseen circumstances, I am a little "off the grid" for a while. However, I am going to try to still post  updates as I can. Today I post a question. If you were to design a planner for Pagans, or a reorganizable BOS, what would you include? This is something that came up in a Facebook group that I follow. Would you make it very general, so that all could use it, or would you make it more specific. Personally, I would like to see something that was more flexible to suit everyone without having labels. This might be something I will have to revisit later.

Planner Addict Day 3

So today's photo is Fountain of Pens. As you can see, I don't have a large collection, but still have quite a few. These are also the pens that I use when working in my BOS. I am working on getting something to be able to keep them all together easier. Once its set up, Ill post an update. Short, but that's all for today.

Planner Addicts Photo Challenge Day 1 and 2

So over at A Bowl Full of Lemons, Toni is hosting a Photo a Day Challenge to post photos of planners. Today is day two, and so far, I am SOOO inspired and impressed. Normally I am not a very organized person, but I am working on it. So on top of posting to the Facebook Group and Instagram, I have decided to use this as inspiration for here. It keeps me accountable for the Challenge, and allows me to go into more detail. So without further adu, I give you Day 1 and Day 2

So the challenge for day 1 was to post a photo of the cover of your planner. Mine is an Erin Condren Life Planner. If you haven't checked them out, go over here, and check it out. I went with one of the pre-done covers that she had a choice from, and added my name and year. So far, I am liking this planner, but after looking at some of the others that have been posted, I may look into a different one. 

Today's challenge, was "In the Bag." This is a picture of my planner in my purse that I carry when I am not at work. When I am in uniform, I carry a simple black back pack. Nothing spectacular, but works for me.

So, to everyone who does read, what do you use for a planner, and how do you use it?
Also if you are so inclined, go over to Toni's blog and take a look.

Finally State Side

OK, so the title might be a little misleading, since my family and I have actually been back in the states since about the 12th of July, but if any of you have ever moved, you know how stressful it can be. First, there was the additional 3 hour layover in New Jersey, for a total of 6 hours, then there was the truck breaking down on the Kansas Turn-pike (luckily) it was just a battery, and we were able to get a tow thanks to roadside assistance. Then there is getting things unpacked, restocking the house, and trying to get settled in.
On the plus side, when we only had to stay in the lodge for one night since we had already found a place, and only had to stay in the new house for, I think 2 nights, without anything. The downside of our house is that it is a townhouse, so we are connected, but we have an end unit so only on one side.
So this is from the top of the stairs looking down to the front door straight ahead, with the door to the garage on the right.

At the top is the half bath and then the kitchen with a built in desk. Just to the left is a coat closet. The white door leads to the porch (YAY!)

Here is the kitchen. It has an island that you can see with cabinets underneath. Yes the microwave came with the house. As did a double door fridge with ice and water (YAY!)

This is the porch. It may be hard to tell but the living area would technically be considered a second floor since the garage is the first. Its not much of a view, but still nice to have. Below is a door that comes from the bonus room in the garage.

Excuse the mess, but this is the living room. Not a ton of space but works with the set up we have. Actually have room for a coffee table to once.

First pic is the first portion of the stairs leading up followed by the second after the turn. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. No pics at this time due to all the boxes. 

What I am happiest about right now is that I finally have a room to use as my own. Granted I have to share it with the book case, and modem, but it is still "my space." I finally tonight got my altar area set up, and will post pictures in a future post.

So that should bring it up to speed. Hopefully, I will be able to do a better job of keeping this updated. 

Only time will tell.

Crazy Times Ahead

So for those of you who don't know me. Let me start off by saying, while I love the fact that I got the opportunity to live in Germany, I am happy to finally be heading back to the states. That being said, we now know when and where we are going. We will be leaving Germany in July and heading to.... Ft. Riley, KS. I know, its in the middle of no where, but at this point, I welcome that. I am looking forward to some open space for once.
That being said, now begins the process of PCS'ing and moving. What does that mean. Scheduling Household Goods and Unaccompanied Baggage (DONE), cleaning quarters (IN PROCESS), looking for a new place (IN PROCESS) and clearing out of country (NOT STARTED). It is going to be a rough a trying couple of months, but I know that it is well worth it to get back to the states.

Fox News at it again!

So unless you have been living under a rock, you have already heard about the Fox News story about Missouri State University adding Wiccan holidays to their calender (YAY!), so I'm not going not going to go into much detail about it, other than to say, this is yet another reason why I CANT STAND FOX NEWS! But if you haven't seen it, or heard about it, here is the link to it on YouTube. What I will say, is this is not the first time this has happened, check out this video straight from the Fox News website. What are you thoughts on this?
Also if you like, please take the time to sign the petition.
