After visiting with family a few times recently, I’ve come to discover something. Somehow it’s new every year, but… I’m just NOT like the rest of my family… or my husband’s. Just not. While tackling the mountain of dirty dishes that has accumulated over the last couple of days of good home cooking (and family […]
Okay, so there are a ton of good things about being a stay at home mom (hello, no stuffy work wardrobe), but there is one truly great thing. I noticed yesterday (New year’s woohoo!) that my 16 month old ‘covered her sneeze’, that’s awesome, right?
The very same day my 4 year old ran to give […]
I had a kind of realization a week ago, as I was dragging myself off to bed. I’d just stood and cried, apologizing profusely to the county officer that had been dragged out of his shift to check on us, because the baby dialed 911. I still have no idea how she did it. My […]
Thankfully, nothing happened. I’m really glad my husband gave me permission to just NOT worry for 2 days. I would have been much crankier with the kids and everything in general. Instead I laughed at their silliness, pulled stuff from the freezer, let them watch movies, listen to music, and read books. We went to […]
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 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, […]

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 […]
I was chatting with a blog friend on facebook today and it brought to mind an interview I did with a person named Sam. Sam wore a baggy tshirt and jeans (and was a student so was forgiven for this). Sam had a short spiky styled haircut. No obvious chest. and was thin as a […]
This was originally set to post in April as a running dialogue of the last 9 months and was titled “Baby #3’s Journey into life”. The last 2 weeks have been unreal and I’m now going through the ‘loss’ process, so forgive me if I’m not posting as much in the next little bit. I’ve […]
