** If I ever turn up missing, a vineyard in Sonoma is most likely where you'll find me.
** My daughter thinks I was born in 1818. Seriously, she asked if that was my birth year. WTF?!
** Entirely too many people think they have the right of way.

Don't you just love how candid kids can be? Especially when it comes at your own personal expense? Just think how awesome it would be if, as adults, we could say exactly what we think and have people chuckle and say how darn cute we are. Unfortunately, however, we'd most likely end up getting our asses kicked and be unfriended by every single person we know on Facebook.
Luckily, for my daughter, it's still pretty hilarious when she asks me why my boobs aren't "as big as…Continue

Parenthood, we have a problem. My sweet baby girl has gone off the deep end. Even though she's only eight years old, I'm seriously considering enrolling her in Maury Povich's boot camp. Or a chain gang. Or both. Cause seriously? This shit's gotta stop. The kid has been sent to the principal's office not once but TWICE in one week, and one of those times was on…Continue

Ok, so on Saturday I had the opportunity to be a judge at the Inland Northwest Qualifier (3 States were represented) for the National Christian Forensics & Communications Association (NCFCA). Since both of my…Continue

I took on a volunteer position with one of my kids' schools this year and have been doing a pretty good job (if I say so myself).
Then I got sick. That was three weeks ago and I'm just now working on getting rid of my second (or is this one my third?) sickness. I hesitate to say "cold" too loudly because if it hears me, it might come running and lick me on the mouth. Again.

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.
** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid. And tired.
** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

In some ways, I hope my son is just like me. In most ways, I hope he isn’t.
I was an ok kid who liked to run around naked. Front yard nudity is quite harmless when white-tailed deer and turkeys are the only ones to see it. It is, however, a little embarrassing when family friends remember you for it.
The only trouble I really ever caused was behaving inappropriately during inappropriate situations (ie: laughing when my parents were being serious). My sister was usually the one…Continue

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies. We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…Continue

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household? Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…Continue

Don't ya just hate it when you go through an entire day thinking it's a day later than it actually is? This is exactly what happened to me on Tuesday of this week. I could've sworn it was the last day of November and, therefore, convinced myself that it was, indeed, time to switch into that holy-shit-mode of the holiday season trying to get everything done that needs to get…Continue

Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!" Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose. I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway). The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.
It all started with our annual adults-only costume party, which…Continue

We have all heard about UNICEF, an acronym for the United Nations Children’s Fund (the I for International and the E for Emergency were dropped in 1953).UNICEF has been around since the 1940′s and was initially created to provide for children in countries that had been devastated by WWII. Today, UNICEF operates in more than 150 countries and provide humanitarian relief to focus on saving children’s…Continue

I think we've all learned by now that I am THE queen of embarrassing moments. Lord knows I've certainly had way more than my fair share of 'em. And if I hadn't figured out how to laugh at myself a long, long time ago, well, I'd sure as hell be living in a ditch somewhere with a bag over my head by now. Luckily, though, I just dust myself off and move on with the show,…Continue

** Recovery time from the weekend is much much longer than it used to be.
** I should just hand out money to trick-or-treaters as much as candy costs these days.
** School pick up in the rain is about as much fun as filing your nails with a chain saw.
** It's impossible to get the smell of dead snail off your hands. Don't ask…Continue

So lately, our dog has really been pressing his luck around here. Just when I think I might actually kinda like the big ol' doofus, he goes and does something SO incredibly naughty that I wanna open the front door and allow him to become a street dog. And unfortunately for my mother-in-law, his latest incredibly naughty "something" just so happened to…Continue
