It's a Dog's Life...

Elsie and Fina stand at my bedroom door. They anxiously await the treat in the pantry, the treat that I give them each morning. They follow me downstairs into the kitchen prancing and voicing their excitement for the yummy morsels they are about to get. They beg, sit, then in a single bite their treats are gone. They stay underfoot as I prepare my morning coffee, hoping that perchance, I will show them mercy and give them one more treat. They stare at me with longing eyes.



Once they… Continue

Caffeinate Me!

"Medium mochajava, half-caf, soy, sugar-free, no foam, no whip, 115degree, latte - double-cupped and sleeved."



"Large caramel, skim, decaf, iced, upside down macchiato."



" Small drip. "



Isn't it amazing that there is a whole culture and language associated with coffee? This coffee culture looks and sounds something like this:



Inhabitants enter their caffeine habitat and form a long row, each facing the back of the next. They stand in silence,… Continue

The Baby Pooped on My Party Clothes!

Oh...It seems like yesterday.



We had just spent the summer with my parents. I couldn't wait to be back home with my husband whom I missed terribly. My girls, likewise missed their daddy and were anxious to be home with him.



We boarded the plane looking fresh and crisp in our nice white summer clothes. The girls were wearing matching white shirts with sweet little green frogs that I had just happened to find in all three sizes. I was wearing crisp white linen shirt and… Continue

Fill in the Blanks

Adjective: Gooey



Noun: Plunger



Part of the Body: Elbow



Liquid:......



Since moving here to Arizona, this is how many of our family dinners end. No, this is not a regional tradition or an activity mandated by some obscure state law. This is not out of observance of any religious activity. Nor is it because we have some strange vocabulary obsession. This is the result of a school book sale.



It all started about six years ago when my daughter… Continue

Let Them Eat Cake!!!

Now, I'm no ace of cakes.....but, I can make a pretty pastry if I do say so myself.



I've been making cakes for about 15 years now. It started with a class at an arts and crafts supply store and has become a long lasting hobby. Since my first cake ( a dalmatian cake for my daughter's third birthday) I've crated a litany of cakes. Wedding cakes, birthday cakes, shower cakes, baptism cakes....cakes with flowers, cakes with motorcycles, cakes with cartoon characters, cakes with… Continue

Is There Anything I Am Good At?

Boy! Some days I feel like I'm just not any good at anything!



This morning I woke up 45 minutes late. My kids in turn were running late to school. My house was (still is) a mess - didn't get the dishes unloaded last night or the laundry done or the miscellaneous clutter put away. As I picked up a friend to take to our Women's Group at church, I apologized profusely for the mess that my car was...and for being late. I over-scheduled my youngest daughter's activities for the weekend,… Continue

Patriotic American Hat

Today I choose to wear a patriotic American Hat.



If you were to ask people what that hat looked like, you would probably get a variety of different descriptions, maybe even none that were exactly the same. Some might say that the hat looked like marching in a parade that supported, celebrated or protested something. Some might say that it looked like standing up for a particular cause. Others might say it looked like speaking out against that same cause. To others it may look like… Continue

AZ Mom of Many Hats

Hello all!!! Like many of you, I am a mom that is in a transition period in life. My kids are getting older and don't need my hovering attention anymore. Motherhood is changing for me and I am moving in to a sub-phase of motherhood that I like to call me-hood. I have been so focused on mothering for so long, that I now feel the need to reconnect the neuro pathways in my brain that tell me who I am. I am hoping that through blogging, I can connect with other moms that may be in the same… Continue
