New Product Review: Petratools Battery Sling Sprayer

If you’ve followed the blog for any amount of time, you know we live in a farming town in Central Florida. While we are not farmers ourselves (well, except for my experimental garden that continues to surprise me) we are literally surrounded by farmland. If you were to come sit on my front porch with me right now, you would smell the sweet sweet aroma of strawberries from fields across the road from us, behind us, and just down the street from us. And these days you would even be able to see the pickers dashing up and down the rows of fruit, snatching up the best options from each plant. Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself not to take this life for granted; it really is amazing.

However, with the somewhat warmer weather, a bit of rain, and wide open spaces come a few issues. Mainly mice, frogs, mosquitos and ants.

Granted, the circle of life is alive and well out in these parts. The hawks and other large birds don’t let too many mice or frogs get away, and the frogs are huge fans of dining on mosquitos. However, when the mice DO get through, they come in our garage and wreak havoc. When the frogs DO get through they pile up behind the wreath on our front door and PEE everywhere. And the ANTS. Oh my word at the ants.

So we try to stay on top of our pest control around here. As soon as we notice an issue, you can find my hubby outside with his trusty sprayer, barricading our abode with his secret pest control mix. (I seriously have no idea what he puts in there.) And typically to do that he uses a small pump sprayer that he picked up at our local hardware store.

New Product Review: Spray Away Toilet Brush

Sometimes I think about you, reader. And I think that, no matter who you are or what you do or what you’re like…we can all agree that what I have just experienced in my life in no way, shape or form has been…FUN.

Allow me to share with all of you that I believe we are FINALLY at the end of POTTY TRAINING. Potty training TWINS. (I’m still shuddering thinking about it. I’m also waiting on some kind of huge regression to happen because, well, that WOULD be my luck.)

But if there’s one thing I’ve learned about potty training, it’s that potty training is MESSY. Oh my goodness. Is it ever MESSY.

New Additions

Okay, you guys know the drill…

As we get more and more settled in our new home (is it still new if we’ve been here for 9 months now?), I pick up things in my free time (HA! What the heck is FREE TIME?!) and add them to our house. Now begins another post to share  those with y’all! Maybe you’ll get some good ideas, and maybe you can give me some good ideas, too! Note: I don’t bring things into the house unless I LOVE them. I don’t see a point in being surrounded by “stuff”, much less stuff that I think is “just okay”.

1. Desk in Home Office

You can see that we’re still working on getting this one settled, but we were gifted a brand new desk at Christmas for our home office! Now we can both sit in the same room and work at the same desk! The one before barely accommodated one person!

Welcome to the NEW Blog!

Hello, all!

Whether you are brand new to this blog or have come over from the old blog, welcome! I’m excited that you’re here to enjoy the Road to Domestication along with me!

So, why are we here? (I mean, why are we over at WordPress now instead of Blogger?) The more research I did on blogging platforms, the more I discovered that WordPress offers a greater flexibility and potential for advancement than Blogger – so I decided to migrate this way. I’ve got a LOT to learn on this platform now, but I’m up for the challenge! And I’m excited about it, and about what’s coming!!!
