About 6 months ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table, eating my breakfast, checking Facebook on my Kindle when a lightbulb went off in my head.

For a week or so prior to this moment, I had been lamenting in my head how uncomfortable it was to sit up in my bed to watch TV at night.  My husband had also been suffering from allergies, and I was contemplating how to help him breath better at night.

Believe it or not, my lightbulb moment was from my kindle!  My kindle case has a folding cover which allows me to view my kindle at two different angles by using a tri-fold cover.

Once I had the idea, it was just a matter of lots and lots and lots of trial and error!

It has been one of those weeks where it feels that my entire day is made up of repairing/cleaning/fixing all the things that my children have broken and destroyed.

Obviously, that is not completely true – part of my day is making meals and then cleaning up after the meals.  🙂

Well, one of the things that I fixed this week was a crossbow one of  my boys got as a Christmas gift.   My husband accidentally broke it by stepping on it.
