Owls. They’re a hoot.

May 5, 2008

First off, we have a big bird problem. Um…not so much a Big Bird problem. More like a big ass bird problem. The end of our driveway sits under a huge tree. We were initially excited about this, as our cars would be shaded and cool in the hot summer months. Turns out, that shade […]

I think I spend 75% of my life on my knees.

May 3, 2008

Scrubbing, diapering, tying shoes, kissing hurt knees, kissing…other things. And, it is this realization that brings me to this post. There is a portion of my birthday that I haven’t discussed yet. I needed to let enough time pass for the wounds to heal before I thrust the issue out for public fodder. My gorgeous […]

A tourniquet and a mango smoothie

May 2, 2008

I think, as a rule, hemophiliacs should not be allowed to work with mangos. Besides being absolutely delicious and healthy…mangos are slippery. Like, jello wrestling slippery (ahhh…college). And, even though I had been warned of this, by pretty much everyone I spoke to, I still underestimated the potential danger of a slick fruit and a […]

A true story about mangos and John Tesh.

April 29, 2008

I ran out of milk today, which is a no no when you have toddlers running around, so I had to make a run up to the local “financially rape you because there isn’t anyone else for another 20 miles” super market. Being that I am still a bit sicky, and in need of some […]

Birthday Weekend: Closing Ceremonies, cough cough

April 29, 2008

Well, how fun, another birthday has come and gone. Thanks everyone for the cards, gifts, flowers and phone calls! It was great to feel so special! Sadly, because I was bound and determined to grill for the past two days, despite the wind…rain…hail…it seems I have become quite sick. I mean, I will still grill […]

Birthday Weekend Part Two

April 28, 2008

Day two of the festivities started out with massive amounts of cleaning. Hubby invited people over that night in a birthday party capacity, so that meant picking up 800 leggos, turning over kool-aid stained couch cushions, and moving the contents of my “fun” drawer to another, much safer location (I have some snoopers in my […]

Birthday Weekend Part One

April 26, 2008

It’s here, folks. Today is part one of the three day carnival that is, my birthday weekend. And, I know I am not 10 any more, and the days of clowns and pin the tail on the donkey have long since passed, but, deep down, I think everyone wants to feel extra special on their […]

Put down your Nintendo controller and ship my new cell phone, ya douche bag! I am sure you are riiggghhhtt in the middle of a kick ass game of Duckhunt (The kids still play that, right? I am so out of touch), but I paid you a week ago, and my current cell phone is […]

Worms in our bellies

April 22, 2008

“Ma! Derf een moof. DERF EEN MOOF!” Translation: “Mommy, don’t look now, but there is literally two fist fulls of dirt and other organic material in my mouth. Probably a bug or two as well. And I am eating it. Would you like to eat some too?” Gee’s, while it looks yummy sweetie, mommy is […]

Not for everyone, but perfect for me.

April 21, 2008

Today was a good day. Lately, I find myself with so many obligations. Appointments, lunch dates, mounds of house work, and general rushing around. I always told myself I wouldn’t get caught up in things of that nature, but I’ve spent too many days staring out the window at a beautiful day I could not […]
