Well...I caved at sleepy time this evening. It was really hard all day
for everyone. We usually watch the 5-6:30 news while making dinner, and
I missed that too. The TV spent the entire day off until 7:45. When
afternoon sleepy time for nap time came, Bree fussed and kicked up a
storm, but I read twice as many stories and eventually she went to
sleep. Bree tried when she woke from her afternoon nap to coherce me to
put Dora on, but I stood firm. We played hopscotch… Continue

You’ve heard those jokes before. The jokes that start out with religious leaders walking into a bar and end in some off-color punchline revolving around body parts or selling hair, right? O.K., maybe those aren’t the most common punchlines, but it’s not like I’m really listening anyway, since I can never get past the idea of religious clerics [often of, at times, estranged religions] spending cocktail hour together. Because wouldn’t it be world altering if religious leaders… Continue

*welcome to my first post added to MBC...I hope you enjoy it!
So, I have mommy swagger...I bee-bop around, generally, with a bounce in my step...my Hubby says I glow. Somedays, I'm sure I give off I-am-woman-hear-me-roar vibes. I can see how this fronting could give the impression that I can handle anything,…

Friday's around here are like parties. I have two kids in school, two out. If the school kids had a great week, they get to pick dinner and we pretty much party it out with music, games, and anything that we don't do daily. It can also be really loud as ,again four kids, they have a mind of their own.This one hates that song, that one doesn't like the game, that one over there eats the dice, and that one over there just wants to flick it across the table. The movie is rotten, the popcorn is… Continue

My three children were not born on September 11, 2001. They were not even conceived or though of. In fact, I had not even met their father. That would be a year or so away.
I was a stockbroker in a large firm on my phone with the trading desk, placing an order, calculating my commission, wondering if it was enough to buy that new Kate Spade purse I wanted. The trader on Wall Street took my order and then called back a few minutes later. "There is some craziness here. Something has… Continue

Hearing about someone's most embarrassing moments, is a great way to get to know and understand them. So, if you are going to get to know me, I suppose I should share one of my "moments."
So... It was the summer of 1992. A very "cool" group of people invited me out for lunch one afternoon. I was so surprised and excited to be included, they were the well-to-do, hip young crowd that everyone wanted to hang with. The "life of the party" types.
Until recently, I was broke and… Continue

Dancing With The Stars
will see yet another season. Aren’t
we all getting a little sick of this show yet? I have to admit I have
seen episodes here and there, but have never watched a season in its
entirety. If you are having trouble counting how many seasons this
makes, that’s because you have now run out of fingers. Yes, that’s
right, this will make the 11th season.
Don’t worry, I won’t hold you in anticipation any longer. Here is your cast according… Continue

I’ve been thinking a lot about religion lately. Having grown up in Massachusetts, most of my friends in school were “Catholic.” I give the quotations there because they said they were Catholic, but they were as Catholic as a tomato is fruity. What I mean is, they say they’re Catholic but they don’t smell or taste like a real Catholic would. I was always jealous of their First
Communions and Confirmations. It was like another birthday.…

“You’re Fired.” Besides Donald Trump and every angry boss in a
movie, who really says that? By the way, it may just be a rumor, but I
heard that The Donald tried to trademark the phrase, but that idea
didn’t go over too well. There are so many other ways to tell someone
they will not be working for you anymore and most people do not actually
choose “you’re fired.” Have you ever been told that? I didn’t think
so. So, if not many people are actually saying it, why is… Continue

Mosquito Bites! As I sit here scratching mine, I’m wondering what
makes them so itchy? I know that this is something I have learned
before, but it’s obvious that it is something I must learn again. Some
say mosquito’s have been around for 30 million years. That sounds like
plenty of time to get their genetics perfected. In fact, there are over
2700 different mosquito species throughout the world (according to
howstuffworks.com) and they also describe, in detail,… Continue

Lacrosse. A foreign sport to me. This is something I have never
played, but was always interested in. Maybe if my high school has a
girls lacrosse team I might have played. After all, this seems like a
good old contact sport and I find myself drawn to that, or at least I
did years ago. What little I do know about lacrosse is that it involves
sticks and a ball and some nets, equipment similar to many sports, but
Lacrosse started with the… Continue

Wonderful natural & non-toxic recipes can be made right in your own kitchen.
I learned years ago that homemade beauty products are the treatments of choice for people (like me) with sensitive skin because they are free of artificial dyes, fragrances, and preservatives that can cause irritation. Since you control exactly what goes into your products, you can be sure that only fresh organic ingredients touch your skin & hair (o:… Continue

Me: 'OK, lights out, school in the morning.'
Her: "You're lucky. You don't have to get up early in the morning. You don't have a job."
Now, upon hearing this from my 12 year old daughter many, many feelings came over me.
I feel great pride in not lashing out with a booming scream 'Oh Yeah?!? Oh REALLY
?!?!? Well shall I list all of the "jobs" I supposedly DON'T
do??? Shall I????????

So I am on a stash busting mission. My crafting table is overflowing with unused fabric. So before I buy any new fabric...I need to bust through this stash!
This dress is still a bit big for my little girl. But super cute. The colors are really bright and it's not really a fabric you'd typically see on a little girl. Which is kind of why I like it so much. It's very unique.
We had an impromptu photo shoot in the castle in my daughter's room (yes my daughter has a tent… Continue
