You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Super Fast Savory & Sweet Stir Fry Sauce

At least once or twice a week, I have some variation of fish, brown rice, and steamed or roasted vegetables. Thrilling isn’t it?

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Fast Shrimp Scampi-ish Dinner

So the dog’s been sick.  I don’t know.  He probably ate something ridiculously wretched at the Park. . .or in our house.  Anyway, he’s not deathly ill.  Just ill enough to leave glorious messes in the house at night while we sleep. . .And his flatulence is toxic.  I’m certain.  If it continues, I’m forcing the Husband to bring home

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Another 30 Minute Curtain Project

Remember when I said in a post about a ga-zillion months ago I’d share with you what I did with the curtain on the back main floor window? No? Don’t worry, I likely would not have remembered either except for the fact that the curtain was making me positively nuts for months. In fact, that whole “area” was making me

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Last Minute Gift Idea

I’m officially on the naughty list. I didn’t do a very good job planning a great gift for my Husband. Even worse?  I didn’t do a very good job planning a great gift idea for my Husband from our Son.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Custom Onesie

Have I done this post before?   It doesn’t appear I have but I certainly do this project frequently because it’s SUPER simple, fast, not expensive and fun.  Older children can definitely help. . .In fact, they could probably make their own custom shirts, if you’re up to it.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Wall Art Revamp

A few weeks back, Chris’ Mother very kindly offered me some wall art she no longer wanted. It was a modestly sized gold frame containing to signed watercolor prints of chickadees.  You guys know I’m a sucker for the birds. . .

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: FASTEST Dinner Salad EVER

It’s about 70 degrees out today.  It’s sunny.  Birds are happy. There’s no way in hell, I’m messing around for too long in the kitchen.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Simple Advent Calendar

It’s that time of year again. ALREADY!!!!I I’m not mentally ready, but the holidays are coming regardless, so Saturday night I decided I might as well knock back a few and start making this house look like the holidays barfed all over it.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Super Food Soup

Here’s another riveting post about what we ate. This is a very hearty vegetable soup.  (Although, you could easily add meat to the mix if you have some serious carnivores in your home). It’s based on a Winter Lentil Soup recipe I found in a Real Simple magazine years ago. Here’s How: 1.  Measure out approximately 1/2 a cup of

Way back ’round Labor Day or was it the (Fourth of July?), I had an itch to make a tee-pee for Mac. Ok, you’ve got me, I wanted a tee-pee for Me that Mac would also hopefully like.
