Today is a grass stain day. You may not have ever noticed my tagline on my blog… but the general idea is that you can’t bubble wrap life, that you just have to deal with the mess and the beauty the best way you can. Otherwise, you’re not really living. We’re just normal people. We […]
By now you’re either on your way to visiting family, or you’re haphazardly thawing a turkey in the sink, right? Don’t we all have a lot to be thankful for, though? I know I’ve been posting cutesy pictures and silly (but sentimental) things that I’m thankful for this year. I mean how many people put […]
I’ve talked about this before. THIS is what I made before kids. We’d take it to both our jobs and share. Chex mix, muddy buddies (aka puppy chow), 2 kinds of fudge, peanut butter kiss cookies, chocolate molds, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate dipped oreos, and on and on! I would make most of the this […]
Today I chose to find a writing prompt from the NaBloPoMo site. I think it’s a pretty good one: If you could instantly know any language in the world, which one would it be?
Now of course, the obvious choices would be something that would help you get a job as an interpreter or over the […]
We have this rule in our house that the oldest kid can’t be up before 7, or when it’s light out. You know, whichever is later. *shrug* Keeps momma happy! So when at 6:30 a.m. Friday I heard her door creak open and her annoying children’s music got louder upstairs, I let it play out […]
I recently finished the new release ‘the time keeper’ from Mitch Albom. If you’ve seen the movie or read ‘the 5 people you’ll meet in heaven’ or ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’, then you’re familiar with his work. If not, then go pick this book up. 2 strangers meet, in a strange place, time out of time, […]
Please comment with what one thing you would change about your life if you could!
Warning: this may be depressing, but if you’re a new reader, and want to get to know me, you might read on:
I’m doing NaBloPoMo again this year and I scrolled through the topics they suggest, one of them is the title […]
Can any of us really be labeled by our generation?
We’re strange in this house. We have the tech specs of Gen Y. We’re wired and see everyone as equals. We’re Gen X by birth… but we act way more like Boomers because we have morals and believe we should work for what we get, that […]
If you’re a parent, particularly one that has multiple children, you’ll know what I mean when I say how hard it is to find time for me. Not time to go have a weekend with ‘the girls’, not time to take a cruise with my husband, but just time for me. Ten minutes to shave […]
You know what I mean, right?
*stop getting into her face*
*you have to get your hair brushed because otherwise it looks like I’m not taking care of you*
*wipe you butt, wash your hands, and THEN you can go back and eat*
I added a new one tonight. A little background, my 3 year old (almost 4!) has […]
