I was just waiting … waiting for my husband to finally come around to a mini van rather than an SUV.  He researched which SUV we were going to get.  Figured out our possible monthly payments.  Decided which dealership we’d buy from –  and I supported his hard work.  I thought – I could do […]

Good news from the Hansen household!  There’s going to be a new addition.  Roman Frederick will be Everett’s little brother and his ETA is August 28th.  Now that I’m of ‘Advanced Maternal Age’ things are a little more achey and I’m a little slower, but I’m so happy and feel very blessed to be able […]

Last Friday was like any other sort of day.  Got done with work, headed home to see my son and then we went downstairs to play.  That’s where our sweet kitty, Piper, lives.  She’s finally given up on trying to pretend that she likes the dogs and chooses to claim the entire basement as her […]

Consignment sale shopping is about some of the best advice I ever got.  Yes orginally when you found out you were going to be a parent, you hit the internet and the stores so that your precious little cherub gets everything bright, shiny and new.  But then you wise up.  Consignment Sale shopping is an […]

There are few events in your life where you remember EVERYTHING.  One of those rare times for me was when my nephew Carter was born.  It was five years ago on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day.  I remember what I was wearing.  I remember the 24-hours leading up to it.  I remember what the air smelled […]

I will never take for granted my little seven-minute drive to work I used to have.  We moved a year and a half ago to the east side of Madison, so now I’m a beltline commuter.  These are the things that I’ve all too many times seen, watched and witnessed that just baffle me … […]

                                   Yep, we’re on the hunt for a new vehicle.  My sweet, wonderful 2001 Jetta, Brigetta, has seen her better days.  She’s got hail damage, a banged up passenger-side headlight from a fender bender and the ‘check engine’ light […]

There’s an author who once said something that has stuck with me for years.  “Please be responsible for the energy you bring into this space.”  I love that and think of it often.  So, I’m well aware that I’m about to bring negative energy into this space, but this winter can kiss my butt!  Oh […]

Loss and grief are two powerful, powerful forces.  They can grip your gut and take you down in a moment’s notice.  And it doesn’t matter if your loss was 10 days ago or 10 years ago.  Grief has a way of sticking around to haunt you in your lonliest times,  but it can also empower you to do […]

Everett started Toddler Time at Monona Grove Nursery School (same place that my siblings and I went.)  We finally got the dang carpets cleaned. Two dogs and a cat that we’ve managed to keep healthy and happy.  My brother and Julie got married! My grandma Hansen  turned 92! The furnace and both our cars pooped out on […]
