Remember these little ladies? Well, since late April, when this was taken, they grew up and now they look like this: Amazing right? So life with three full grown chickens is kind of funny. We don’t have names for them, because we can’t really tell them apart. Plus, the sad truth about
There’s something about the “life hack” articles that pop up on my Facebook feed that make my finger automatically click on them. I usually scroll through the whole list, and occasionally find a “wow” idea that I actually use. My favorite one so far is using a binder clip to keep my headphone wires from running amuck.
I am a cluttered person, there are no two ways about it. Everything in my life is kind of a mess: My bag is jammed with old receipts, gum wrappers, and enough crap to live on a desert island for a month. My room is piled high with clothes, old Amazon boxes, and other stuff,

On the morning of Saturday, May 6, 2017, Madison will get its annual spring beautification during May Day in Madison, thanks to the hard work of hundreds of volunteers and Madison’s Downtown Development Commission (DDC). For the fourth year in a row, my third grade Girl Scout troop and their families will be one of the groups
This is good. Really good. If you’ve ever struggled to keep everyone in clean clothes, and clean towels in the bathroom, and clean sheets on the bed (be honest) this is your luck day! Laundry Angels is here to help. The concept of Madison resident Michael Hoskam and his wife Nina Ratzrnan, Laundry Angels is
