Recently, while reacquainting myself with my little bloggy-blog I came across this post that for some reason only known to God and the Universe, I never published. Rather than dump it off as a missed opportunity to share I decided to include it as today’s blog post, the information still quite relevant. I threw this […]
Priorities, after all.
My son is a pagan. Or something along those lines. Recently, during one of my daily “breakdown of the school day” rap sessions with my little 2nd grader (a.k.a. behavior update and/or early planning for teacher Christmas payoffs) I discovered that Jack has recently had Santa Clause on his little brain. I shouldn’t be surprised. […]
The Blessed Weekend
And it’s Monday. I can’t believe how quickly the weekend goes. I remember backwhen I was a working girl (not THAT kind of working girl…gaw…although I totally would have been a Julia Roberts-typeand not her annoying co-prostitute/roommate, Kit). It seemed the week would creep along at a punishingly slow pace. I would gaze at the […]
Humiliation at the Dryer Door
On Wednesday I blogged about my 10 year-old blossoming pride and joy, Avery. In case you missed it, you can read up here. Basically, the gist of the story is that she’s growing up. Rapidly. Gone are the teeny tiny buns, andin their place slightly bigger tiny buns. She’s a burgeoning young lady in a […]
I mean, really… Who said she could grow up?!?
I’m a mother of a 10 year-old girl. Do you know what that means? I can justimagine all the mothers of girls out there raisingcollective sighs to the Universe right now. Ya get me? She’s a good girl. A really good girl, in fact. But I am starting to get glimpses into what will most […]
Let the Soccer Begin!
Picture it: Numerous sets of banged up knees running chaotically through a field of grass, the object of their one-track minded goal bouncing back and forth from ankle to ankle. The buzz of excitement over any potential contact with said object is palpable to those watching this familiar dance. And then picture this: On the […]
Hello friends! Can we send the kids back to school yet?
Hi there gang! So, it’s been approximately 72 years since my last post. Not much has changed. I’m still a stay-at-home mom. My kids are still lovely. My hubby is still all up in my biz and working from home. I still live in the suburbs. And I’m still just this side of looney bin-bound. […]
Costco (Where the Strong buy Batteries and the Weak buy…Everything?)
We’re all on a budget, right? These economic times have been rough on the lot of us and I’ve joined the ranks of the many trying to spend smarter/save wiser. Then why, oh why, would I continue to send my husband into that financial sinkhole more commonly known as Costco? Let me set the scene […]
Hanging my head in shame…
Hello friends. Am I still allowed to call you that? Do we need to go through that awkward ‘get to know each other’ phase again? I have been absent for a very long time. In fact, in blogger’s terms, you could say a lifetime has passed since my last post. Even truer, in Mindy’s terms […]
Snow…it’s about durned time!
I woke up this morning to a beautiful sight. And let me tell you in advance that the snoring man lying next to me with his opened mouth resting against my newly washed pillowcase was NOT it. Nay, I woke up to a tiny version of a Winter Wonderland. Delicate little ice crystals dancing in […]
