My Kitchen Drawers Need These


A couple of my kitchen drawers need these heavy duty drawer slides. They’re the 2 drawers below the coffee maker counter top. It’s a bit tricky to open them right now. You open it too quickly and it’ll drop down fast. You do it slow and it’ll feel heavy and would make an irritating sound. The fingernails running through a chalkboard kind of sound. It just have to be the right push or pull to get the friction from the slides on point. We might end up replacing the cabinets and drawers someday though. We’re just slowly doing our home projects one at a time. Perhaps, when I win the next Powerball my kitchen will get a complete overhaul. Or move to another house, we shall see, HAH!

Mirror Mirror On The Wall…..


So, I’ve decided that I want a mirror wall gallery in my dining room. I’ve thought about this a lot after I regrammed a picture from Home Decorators on Instagram 9 weeks ago. I originally didn’t want to put anything on the dining room wall because I don’t want to distract the beautiful textured floral wallpaper but somehow I’ve convinced myself that there should be things hanging there. I don’t want anything too dramatic like a huge floral painting though. With my affinity for gallery walls, I figured mirrors would be perfect. I hope so anyway.

I created this mock up of my dining room using mirrors from Dot & Bo. They’re not exactly favorable to my price range but just for an inspiration, this is how I would style the mirror wall gallery in the dining room. My plan is to somehow recreate this look with mirrors that I would hopefully find from thrift stores.

My Own Version Of “Scrapbox”


Holidays are over so I was finally able to organize all my scrapbooking and crafty stuff inside my own scrapbox which I made from a non-functioning cabinet that was just collecting dust in our master’s bedroom. I’ve moved the cabinet in the mini-library area of the living room and it’s been serving as my crafty area as well as Emma’s painting corner. But it was a mess until last week though.


Now everything is neatly put away in their own little sections.


I’ve recycled some of my shoeboxes as containers for scrapbook and craft supplies. They are pretty printed boxes before but I’ve decided to cover them up with the leftover brown paper wrapper that I’ve used for Christmas gifts last year. It just looks uniformed that way.


I’m so glad I’ve invested in a Cricut years ago. I only have 2 cartridges but I’m happy with them. They’re serving me well with what I need.

#Autism: Winning Over Homework


HOMEWORK, I can say a lot about this but I don’t want to be stressed out. Once I let myself get into that hole it will affect my child’s mood and we don’t want that. No Way No How! So we deal. We do it and get it over with. This first week of back-to-school after the holiday break has been pretty good. Doing homework hasn’t been stressful for Emma at all. I’d hate to jinx it but it’s been really good in that department.

Yesterday was a breeze despite having too much homework. I was quite impressed with how Emma did it without getting anxious or anything. She did 2 math, 1 spelling word, 1 Q & A book report, and her daily reading log. That’s 5 homework. It took us longer than usual that Scott and Caine had to wait for dinner patiently. I helped her work through all of her homework and she finished them all LIKE A BOSS!


One Quick Thought On #MakingAMurderer & The “Affluenza” Kid


I waited until after the holidays to get into this Netflix phenomenon, Making A Murderer. I started it yesterday and I am now on episode 6. Just like everyone else who’ve binge watched the documentary, I was left infuriated after each episode. I’m not going to talk about the whole thing of course since I really think people should watch it if they haven’t. Or not, whatever, your prerogative. I happen to like watching real life crime dramas like 48Hours, Dateline, and 20/20 so this was on top of my list to watch on Netflix.

It’s not my intention to give away spoilers but there’s one particular line that struck me and made me immediately think of that “Affluenza” kid, Ethan Couch.

In one of the episodes which I can’t remember now, after Steven Avery was put in custody for the murder of Teresa Halbach, Steven was on the phone with his mother. Steven gave himself 2 weeks because there he was in jail, again. Anyway in the course of his chat with his mother, Steven said, “Poor People Lose.” If you’re not familiar with Steven Avery at this point, he went to prison for sexual assault and attempted murder, maintained his innocence the whole time and after 18 years in prison thanks to DNA testing, was exonerated and got out but found himself as suspect to a murder while in the middle of a $36million lawsuit against Manitowoc County.

While I was processing those words I also immediately thought of Ethan Couch aka the “Affluenza” kid who got away from killing 4 people(and all his other shenanigans before the tragic incident that killed 4 people happened). HOW? His parents are filthy rich.

“Poor people lose.” “Affluenza” Kid. Justice System.

#Autism: How My Daughter Views Santa Claus


We all know how Santa Claus looks like. He wears his red and white suit and he has a beard and sometimes he wears glasses. How he goes from one place to another in one day is of course beyond any of our knowledge but it is what it is, *AHEM*. Now, when you have a child who has autism and views everything in different colors well then, Santa is going to get a major makeover.


There you go. True to her love for rainbows and viewing everything in prism, this is how Santa looks like according to Emma. Give her the freedom to explore her artistic side and she will color your world as bright as you can imagine.
