Just for the heck of it let's pretend that I know what I am doing as a mother and that all the postings here didn't really happen.

I married McGyver
So we are heading out on our annual Priest Lake camping trip and wondering how do we keep our cell phones charged so people can get a hold of us or we get a hold of someone in emergency. Ben to the rescue. He made a 12 volt charger.
Taped two 6 volt batteries together, wired in a 12 volt car charger and TA DA!
I guess he used to do this a lot up in Alaska for camping and emergencies. I gotta tell the folks about this. Losing their cell phone charge is a big worry for them when the power goes out. You can charge anything you want as long as you have the proper AC adapter. AMAZING!
Seeing how a lot has happened since I started this blog 3 years ago, I figured I should update my "about me" In 2010 my huband of 15.5 years passed away very suddenly from illness. Just recently I have found myself married again to a wonderful man who loves me and my children for who we are. This is not to say I am not without my heartache, it just means I am no longer alone in it. It is such a blessing to have someone to hold me when I hurt and to rejoice with when I am happy and most of all to be a wonderful example and friend/ father to my children.
