Feeling fat? Go on a thought diet.



So I’m feeling fat, and I’m pretty sure the shoes I’m wearing make my butt look big. I usually don’t mention when I have The Fat Feeling since it makes me sound like I swallowed Kim Kardashian and burped up her vanity, however, I’m pretty consumed by The Fat Feeling right now. It's not that I'm o.k. with giving up so much of my brain’s real estate to The Fat Feeling, but The Fat Feeling hired an aggressive real estate agent behind on her car… Continue

Mama needs her straight-jacket straps tightened



Friday afternoon, I took care of some long over due errands. Along with me were my three girls, plus one of Lexi’s friends. You know, back before the babies were born and it was just Lexi, adding a friend to the mix meant 1 kid + another kid = 2 kids. Now it’s 3 kids + 1 more kid = 5,734 kids. Mothers out there with three plus kids, I can’t decide whether I should admire you or send in the US Army Reserves to aid you between nap-times.…

Sparkly: I wore it Saturday night



Last week ended on a tense note, so Ben and I snuck out for a quick drink and a few moments alone on Saturday night. We deserved this time together. Actually, if we’re going to be fair about it, we deserved a trip to Europe but I’m grateful for anytime alone.



We didn’t go anywhere fancy. Still, I wanted to take it up a notch so I wore this necklace, which had belonged to my Granny Bea.… Continue

Pretty, petite sociopaths bullied me...Thanks for the memories "ladies" {snort}



I was bullied and run out of school when I was 11 years old. It was horrible. So horrible that I’ve made a conscientious effort to stuff my feelings good and down ever since. Then the recent stories about kids and online/offline bullying and the tragic consequences began running rampant through the media, and all those suppressed feelings resurfaced. That’s just great. Twenty-five, perfectly good years of denying my feelings, and…

I say we quit keeping dental floss on the piano. WHO'S WITH ME?



Years ago when I was just a girl, my dad bought a grand piano. A BRAND NEW GRAND PIANO. We’re talking about a man who has dental work done without the benefit of Novocain just to save a few bucks. I imagine the first time he passed on the the analgesic, the dentist nodded understandingly, opened up my dad's medical file, and then scratched FREAK across his patient information form.… Continue

Burial plots...you don’t buy a starter plot and then trade up to a larger plot located in a better school district.



A couple weekends ago, we went to my cousin’s house for his son’s second birthday party. They served us a nice lunch buffet, and I have to tell you when we first walked into the house, the BBQ aroma from the kitchen felt like a big, welcoming pork hug. If they made them, I’d buy a meat-scent Glade Air Freshener. I don’t usually use air fresheners, but a Glade ‘meat’ Pluggin? I could totally get with that.… Continue

These were the photos before...



I’m going to try something new every month and show you the “before” pictures I use in my monthly banners [I may come to regret those words]. It’s fairly obvious these banner photos are retouched, dipped in varnish remover and then spray-coated, but just the same, you’ll get a gauge of Photoshop's capabilities. Mkay, here we go… Continue

IKEA hangover



We ditched most of our kitchen stuff before we moved to Mexico, and have been eating off of mismatched plates and drinking out of plastic cups since we got back. A year ago. I know, the horror, right?



So yesterday, I decided to drag the kids to IKEA and pick-up some basic white plates and other random stuff. Since I’ve lost my grip at IKEA before and have ended up with a trunk full of EKBY GRUVAN shelves [which never made it out of the… Continue
