I live in the Northwest. Rain is part of the package. In fact, it is 99% of the way we do life here. My daughter, Sydney, who is a native, has made it very clear to me that there is a difference between rain, drizzle, and a slight sprinkle. It’s pretty much all the same [...]

Okay, I started off writing this morning’s post about my one year blogging anniversary, which is tomorrow (quite a week for anniversaries!). However, after breaking up a few dozen sibling disputes over the course of an hour, my train of thought has been derailed, and I have found myself thinking about sisters. My sister, to be [...]
Late yesterday afternoon I called up my mom who was en route to D.C.. I think I may have started the conversation out with something like, “My give-away was a flop!” She laughed. I do believe I had prefaced the post with the possibility that it could either be divine inspiration or a HUMUNGOUS flop, [...]
Okay, let me preface this post with the fact that I am the most non-spontaneous person on the planet. Not kidding here. And what I have up my sleeve right now could quite possibly be divine inspiration or a HUMUNGOUS flop. I guess we’ll find out…
This morning Joel and I were talking at the kitchen [...]
I’m low on creativity today.
Brooklyn has the Chicken Pox.
Sydney is officially on spring break.
Jackson is in rare form.
My parents are flying in on Monday.
I’ve been cleaning my house like a mad woman.
To say this week has been “stressful” would be putting in mildly.
And it’s not even 10am…
I’m not one to whine and complain, and certainly [...]
It’s no secret that I have been dealing with severe moderate skin issues this past week. The zit on my chin turned out to be, in fact, a boil. It all came to a head (pardon the pun) last Saturday morning. I spent all day Friday bemoaning my skin dilemma and feeling terribly sorry for [...]
Sitting here at my computer this morning, I do so with a very squirmy three-year-old. Jackson has decided that simply being in the same room with me is not enough. He needs to be pressed up, hands and feet on my waist and in my face kind of close to me. Currently, he is leaning [...]
I find it somewhat ironic (and perhaps a teeny bit frightening) that I decided to make Friday my big day for dishing out advice, seeing that I am not an authority or leading expert on anything (except for my own personal dysfunction). I haven’t lived long enough nor have I collected nearly enough life experiences to [...]
And my Friday’s Free Advice for the day is…(drum roll please)…
Pursue your passions!
Yikes! What the heck does that mean? (Seriously, we could go in several different directions with this. Especially since I just got home from MomsConnect, and the topic of discussion was “ways to spice up your marriage”.)
Allow me to clarify: find out what [...]
Read a book.
That’s it. Read a book.
Oh…perhaps I should be a little more specific.
Read a good piece of fiction.
I like to read. In fact, I like to read a lot. Before I was married and had children, I was always reading something. I wouldn’t classify myself as a bookworm, but I definitely take great pleasure [...]
