Hi, I'm Susan!

You've found the musings of a messy mama, who is bumbling through the seasons of life. I'm a veteran homeschooler yet I feel like a newbie. I'm a mama to many young adults and also a toddler. We are a blended family who are living an ex-nomadic lifestyle in a rural country town. Join me as I muse my way through marriage, motherhood, homeschooling, health, nutrition and anything else that gives me cause to tap on the keyboard.

Typical Meals in my Home

I'm a creature of habit and convenience. I'm a Drive Thru Sue with Purist ideals. This is a typical week's worth of meals in my home. I don't like shakes or smoothies and I'm quite conservative with my drinks. I'll try about 3 shakes or smoothies per year and gag every time. It's just not my thing. Coffee is though. Hmm coffee.
