Hi! I’m Herchel Scruggs and yes I know I have a “boy’s name.” I live in Jacksonville, Fl with my husband and two kids. My son, Pork Chop, is 8 years old and bossed around by my 7 year old diva, Pea.
After years of being a military spouse then a government contractor’s wife, my husband is finally home “for good.”
Here at Gym Craft Laundry you’ll find mom hacks, homemaking tips, fitness, and easy crafts! Not a crafter? Don’t worry, we share the ideas and give you easy instructions so your children will never know.
When it comes to crafting, it doesn’t really matter what the project looks like. What matters are the memories your children will carry with them long after the paint is cleaned up and the scrapbook paper is put away.
You’ll also find a few projects that will make Mom’s busy life easier without breaking the bank.
Also, you can join me on my neverending journey towards fitness. I do my best to fit time to workout into my busy mom life.
I love lifting weights! You’ll find me smiling at the squat rack or crying over cardio at least five times a week.
Who says that we moms can’t have it all? I know many moms who balance health, fitness, and family fun with finesse. We’ll get there too! All it takes is focusing on what really matters in life and streamlining everything else.
After fifteen years working in sales management, and six years as a full time working mom, I took the plunge and left the workforce to stay at home. Being a stay at home mom is completely different from what I expected but we are loving every minute of it.
When you visit our little corner of the internet, you can expect to find crafts and activities for kids, sure. But you will also a find a community of parents that share their experiences. This is a place where we can talk about raising kids and taking care of ourselves. You may read about miscarriage, fertility, dealing with a child in chronic pain, learn more about Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, find educational apps and book recommendations, and maybe even some interview tips for moms looking to re-enter the work force because these are the things we deal with in our lives.
I will also occasionally share some of the fun things we do here in North Florida!
Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.
You contact me at [email protected]. I would love to hear from you!
