New Year, Same Crazy

Posted January 10, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetSo it’s January 10, and most would write about resolutions on January 1st. I don’t “do” resolutions. It doesn’t really matter, because it’s the same each year: Organize something, paint, exercise, eat better, work on my blog (that one has been getting shoved to the side too much).  My “resolutions” happen usually when school is […]

#40Days, a time to change

Posted March 4, 2014 By dealinanddishin

TweetTomorrow is the start of Lent. Growing up Catholic, Lent was always about giving up something. One year my Mom and I gave up candy. Now we also had a loop hole, because Lent is 40 days only if you exclude the Sundays. I don’t know if this is a rule, but at home it […]

New Site for TV Fans

Posted August 5, 2013 By dealinanddishin

TweetI love writing on this site! I enjoy crafts, food, and doing the family movie night reviews. Dealin and Dishin is a family friendly site. It’s kind of like being Mom all day at home. I have to suppress my twisted humor and sarcasm though, and that is tough for me! I have a real love […]

TweetSaturday it was almost 60 degrees..WooHoo! Then came the rain and the winter storm advisory..Spring Break in Indiana.
