Cows & Chows

Now that the kids are back in school, it is time for me to head back to the gym and out on the roads. I am trying to reorganize my life around the nine hours I have free five days a week. A couple of days a week I go to the gym and swim, the other three days I walk...with my dog...he needs the exercise more than me. Huey has lounged around…

Four Minutes is Better for Me

It’s that time of year again, kids out the door with a backpack full of “I don’t know what” inside. For years, we have had problems with Elliott stashing things in her backpack and taking them to school. Part of that was caused by her RAD, but there was another part that was just doing what every other…

A Perfect Last Sunday

A few weeks ago I saw a flier for our county fair. I have always loved the county fair...roasted corn on the cob, cotton candy, funnel cake, livestock barns, and ferris wheels. They make me happy...but also sad.…

Pedaling Justice

We used to live in a pretty hoity-toity neighborhood...Real Housewives of Orange County hoity-toity. The town was built along a series of creeks with the county planning, building, and maintaining a lot of green space. Once you entered the bike trails, you could walk, run, or bike for miles...halfway across the county and never leave the… Continue

You KNow She's a Girl...Right?

Dear bloggers...I have been lying to you. Well, not exactly lying as much as just not telling the whole truth. I have finally decided to come clean and confess that Elle and Bunny are not my daughter’s...names. They are actually nicknames. When I started writing my blog, I wasn’t sure how much of myself to reveal. In the last eight months of… Continue

"I Managed to Lose the Accent"

Elle started 6th grade this week…middle school. She has a new school, new bus and a different way of attending school. Rather than one classroom with one teacher and one desk, Elle has graduated to different classrooms for every subject, multiple teachers and a hall locker. This is the big time.… Continue

Just Call Me a Bag Whore

It is true. I am a bag whore. My name is Lanita and I am a pursaholic. I love purses. Big tote bags, backpacks, clutch purses, in black, purple, orange and in leather, feathers, beads or plastic.… Continue

Losing Control of What Your Child Eats

I took Elle and Bunny to the doctor the other day for their annual back to school physicals. Both girls are healthy and Bunny spent 20 minutes entertaining her pediatrician with her unique style, all the while lounging on the exam table with a paper gown draped around her like a sarong...this by the way has never happened before, I have never… Continue

A Helmet of Protection

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know my BFF, Brenda, is a psychic. If you’ve missed it, you can read about her here. I have known Brenda since kindergarten, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that we reconnected and… Continue

An End of an Era

Today marks an end of an era...or the beginning of an era...depending if you are a “glass is half empty or have full” kind of person. Today, both of my children climbed on a school bus and for nine hours I will have total peace and quiet.… Continue

Does No One See the Cat Shit on the Floor?

I am not a neat freak. I have written about this before, and I can tolerate a fair amount of mess around the house, but when there have been dishes sitting in the sink for four days and everyone has been walking by them as if they don’t exist...when it wasn’t my job to clean them up in the first…

The Countdown to School

Author's Note: I wrote this post a few days ago and I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to post it...let alone to tired to stay up at night and post. So sorry for my absence this week. It is almost over. With that said, enjoy.

It looks like I am entering…

By the end of most Fridays, Colby and I are beat. Between work and kids and the everyday responsibilities that plague us during the week, when Friday rolls around we don’t have must gas left in the tank.… Continue

A Rare Wordless Wednesday

Don't hate me, but the kids are running me ragged. Only two more weeks until school starts.

Picklemeister Meister Picklemacker

A strange thing has happened to me this summer, I have stepped back into time and become my mother, my grandmother and my great-grandmother. When I planted my garden in the spring all I wanted was to watch the garden grow, eat fresh vegetables and commune with my late grandfather. I have been able to do all of these things, but I have started… Continue
