I realize this post is quite a bit after my hospital stay, but I thought it would be a good idea to reflect on my hospital packing list for my delivery. I read a lot of articles on what to pack in your labor and delivery suitcase and many of them were repetitive, and some had some great ideas that I haven’t though of. So here is what I packed, and my discussion on whether I used the items or not.

I cannot be the only one...whose family is not known for being list makers, no to do list, no grocery list, and absolutely, positively no Christmas lists. I know this sounds silly, how could we possibly expect to receive any gifts we really love if we don't let people know what it is we want, but we never take the time to sit and put pencil to paper to create a list. My family's aversive attitude towards holiday wish list is going to have to change because I have somehow become the PR…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who has realized that the end of another week in December only means seven days closer to Christmas, and that thought is making me break out in a cold sweat. I don't know about the rest of you, but my normal chores don't cease in the name of Christmas, meaning I haven't wrangled up any extra time to spend getting this holiday thing under control.…Continue

He was a lonely inmate, I was just trying to sell some crap on Etsy... and now some creep has my personal info. A cautionary tale, with of course a bit of humor.
Let's just say, I won't be doing Etsy anytime soon, and if I do I'll be following my rules.

When I put my husband in charge of getting the kids somewhere, I can generally expect for at least a handful of important things to be completely forgotten. Try as he might, he just doesn't run through any sort of mental checklist before he races out the door. In fact, he's done this ever since the twins were little tiny babies, often leaving the house without so much as a…Continue

A few days ago I did a fun blog game post, I Play Well With Others... See? One of the questions I answered really got me thinking. M's question #6 was "How do you do it all?" My answer was simple; sleep deprivation and lots of coffee. But, is it really that simple?
Heck no, it's not.
I'm definitely no Super Mom. I strive to be (I've posted several times about my deep…
