Hi, and welcome to The Haphazard Homemaker.
My name is Debbie, and I am the voice behind the blog. What you will find here resembles one big junk drawer full of things that should be hauled off to Goodwill. Too hard on myself? Okay…What you will find here resembles one big junk drawer full of things that should be hauled off to an upper scale consignment shop. Better? Good!
A lot of times I’m goofy. Sometimes I’m creative. Sometimes I like to share homemaking stuff. Many times I talk about parenting. I love to write people. And I enjoy cooking really unhealthy foods. For a full list of all topics just take a look at my sidebar.
I have triplets. They are now seven years old. I also have a five year old, AND a 28 year old and a 25 year old.
I own 10 Alpacas. Oh! I should have included that above because I talk about them a lot. To sum it all up, between kids, marriage, life, and work, things aren’t always easy so I come here to write as a release from the stresses and demands of life.
(Just wondering if you’ve looked at my sidebar yet?)
A little bit about my family:
Our family believes in getting away from electronics as much as possible and getting outside in the fresh air and sunshine. We believe kids learn more valuable lessons in life by climbing trees and building forts with rocks and sticks than staring at a video monitor while fighting green monsters.
We believe in getting back to basics, cooking as much as possible from scratch, and pushing ourselves to slow down in a ridiculously fast paced world. We believe in buying organic when we can (afford it) and not worrying about it when we can’t. We believe chicken nuggets are delicious. We believe in God and salvation, and because of that we have peace for the future.
So, welcome to my little piece of the internet. I hope you find something to read that you enjoy.
I post new articles and blog updates on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google +. (Edited to add), I do not waste time on my Facebook fan page much, because of the changes made to basically kill off bloggers who can’t pay for ads. Facebook fan pages are turning into a place for businesses to advertise. If you want to connect via facebook, please go ahead and like my facebook page, but you can also click “follow” from my personal facebook account because I use that to also push out blog stuff and you have a better chance of catching it in your feed.
You may also want to subscribe via e-mail to get new news delivered straight to your in box.
All of these options are IN MY SIDE BAR!
And in closing, I am trying out a new monthly news letter thing. Below, you can subscribe and get a monthly re-cap of all the crazy (plus some added things not included on the blog)
Thanks for reading, and don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to hear from you.
