About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Summer Chore Charts

So my job has me working weird hours.  I currently have two shifts 530 am-0900 am and then again from 2:30 pm -5:00 pm - so I have a friend watching her during those hours and I'll pick her up and she will be with me from the inbetween time (which when she is at school is when I get most of the household chores done).  I don't want her to sit around and watch TV that whole time (which is honestly what she would prefer).  I have been trying to come up with things that she can do to help and to keep her busy and her mind not turning to mush!  In the process of trying to come up with some more idea's to put on her chore list (that I'm creating) I found this cool sight that has several pre-made character charts where all you have to do is type in what chore you would like them to complete.  If they had a character either of my children liked I would totally be using this chart as well!  Here is the link that you can follow if you are wanting to partake in this FREE chart!
