I cannot be the only one....whose household is not well equipped for home repairs, short of painting or hanging a picture, we are lost among the tools we have accumulated but don't use (or know how to use). Thanks to a home warranty this lack of skills for fixing a household problem usually only means waiting it out for a day or two until a repair man can stomp through our house in his work boots, avoiding all the spoken niceties the rest of us feel are necessary, and grumble their way…Continue

** I may or may not know something about the lack of Kit Kat's in our Halloween candy stash.
** Costumes should really be a part of every day.
In my house, the poop and the fan need no introduction. They are quite familiar with each other, especially when my husband is out of town. Because that's precisely the time that things tend to go very wrong. And usually, it's right at bedtime -- you know, when I've had just about all the fun I can take for one…Continue
** The reinforcements are apparently not showing up any time soon.

** Shamrock Shakes are 600+ calories of awesomeness.
** "Quiet" is most definitely NOT a word I'd use to describe my house.
** My son has apparently given up sleep for Lent. Lucky me.
** Sometimes when people say they don't need help, it's cause they're too overwhelmed to see that they do.

Oh my gosh! So this Valentine's Day was the sweetest, yet simplest for me. I think my husband secretly reads my blogs, because it's been a long time since he's actually took the time to plan something...he must've read my rant, right?
Anyhoo, Valentine's Day morning as I was getting the boys ready for school, he gave me my usually kiss and whispered that he had a spa day planned for me. For a normal girl, she would've probably jumped for joy. But me being an abnormal girl just…

Valentine’s Day is by far one of my favorite ‘holidays’ but I’m honestly not sure why. It could be because of all the $1 crap I get our 2 little boys that excites them beyond words. Or maybe it’s the excessive eating of chocolate all day that makes my tummy happy. Or maybe it’s that I get to turn everything…Continue

This post is dedicated to my husband, my enabler, not in the negative sense but in a way that encourages my growth and lifts me up when I am down... Read more here.

I don't know how it is in your household, but in mine, there's a WORLD of difference between when I get sick and when my husband gets sick. We're talking night and day contrast, people. You see, he turns into a 39 year-old baby when he's under the weather, whereas I must continue with life as normal, sniffles and aches, be damned!
It was just last week when my other…Continue
It's the weekend, and for many people a chance to catch up on things they have neglected. Maybe you would like to catch up with friends and family. Maybe you want to enjoy some extra time with the kids. Possibly you have the dreaded chore filled weekend. You might even just want to have an extended pajama party lolling around watching movies or taking a nap. The intentions are good, but how much of what you want to do gets done? What keeps you from making yourself the…Continue

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me. He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast. And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by. It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…Continue
