Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family. It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a… Continue

As a Power Mom intent on feeding and funding my family, I always make home cooked meals! Okay maybe not ALWAYS but that is my intent (on my best days and when I am in a good mood.) Anyway, I had just cleaned the house when my men returned from a summer morning fishing trip! I had lunch all prepared and was ready to set the table on a fresh table cloth when my husband walked into the kitchen and put not only his fishing pole and gear but his just returned from the gross lake shows on top of my… Continue

Two weeks ago, we went to the beach for a week, and my children would barely eat. We were busy swimming, boogie boarding, sight seeing, and golfing. Since we have been home, the weather has been pretty pitiful, so we have all been stuck inside. I hate the word bored, but they are bored! When they are bored, they tend to eat more. Kate is eating every 30 minutes, and claims she is starving! In addition, Cam has been sleeping in, so he wants to start the day with cereal or pancakes, even if… Continue

Vacation = Relaxation? I'm not so sure. We have been home from vacation for 5 days, and I still don't feel "caught up". I am really tired, still haven't put all of our laundry away, and haven't fixed my hair since we returned home. I am however, soooo happy to be home! It is always nice to get away, but by the end of vacation, I am always excited to return to the comfort of my own home, and ready to eat home cooked meals. This year, we headed to Myrtle Beach for a week. We had an… Continue

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.
I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…
