Still surviving….

I’ve decided to change the theme of the blog slightly. It’s still about my life as a housewife, but I’m also going to talk about being a caretaker to my husband, who is battling chronic pain. My husband came up with the phrase “survival in paradise.” It accurately describes our situation. We live in a […]

In late 1996, I was 21 and about to drop out of college to move in with my soul mate. He made it clear that he had no desire to become a father. He was 34, so I knew he was not going to change his mind. Instead of feeling sad, I felt relieved. Ten […]

Been doing the caretaker thing for my husband, who has some health issues. I didn’t expect to do this after 9 years of marriage. I thought I had 20 years before I’d have to go through this. Tough sometimes, but it’s all a part of what I signed up for when I got married.

Solar Power on a Shoestring

(or, “Gee, it’s great being married to a nerd!”) This is our first attempt at a small scale solar power system. We can use this to power things like our computers, lights, the TV, and the stereo. You can also use this as a car battery charger, if your car battery dies and the electricity’s […]

My neighbor has some beautiful lilacs, and she brought me some cuttings. I put them in 3 different places, and we’ll see if they decide to grow. 🙂 The Spring Ant Wars have been a bit easier this year. I do a lot more spraying when there’s an invasion than I used to. I know […]
