finally, some actual relaxation!

As mentioned in the previous post, our lives the past few weeks have been a tad bit on the crazy side.  I have a feeling this craziness is about to make itself the norm, especially as the kids get older and become more involved in activities and the such. Today I drew the line.  Well, …

random bits and pieces

*  Sweet Rachel was very whiny this morning.  She wanted the blue plate, and she had the green.  Of course.  Seems like a perfectly good reason to pitch a fit to me… how ’bout you?  After informing her that her attitude was not pleasing to God, she cried a bit more, but eventually ate, even …

it’s good that I can already see some good

Wow.  The best Wednesday of my life:  the Wednesday my son was born.  The worst Wednesday of my life, last Wednesday, April 29th.  On this particular Wednesday immediate  family (parents, siblings)  was shaken with some news that while not completely surprising, was still devastating.  One of those things looking back, it’s easy to see the bread-crumb …

who/what is more spoiled?

Me??? OR all of the food in my now broken refridgerator?  I’m going to go with…. both. So, Tuesday night my observant husband noticed that the fridge/freezer (we have the side-by-side style) was making a strange “whiiiirrrr-click” noise.  Didn’t have time to check in amidst the chaos of bathtime/storytime/bedtime… so it was probably about 9PM …

oh yeah!

Go ahead and ask… “who saved $45 dollars last night?”  Go ahead, ask, ask, ask! Okay, answer:  ME!!!  Yes, I did.  Matt cut his own hair with the clippers, I cut Eli’s hair with the clippers, and then… the grand finale (drumroll, please)  I cut Rachel’s hair!  Yes I did!!!  So, between the 3 of …

nothing much

I don’t have anything interesting to say today. I have been productive though… and so here’s my list of things I’ve accomplished so far. *  washed sheets/remade bed *  cut kids fingernails/toenails then vacuumed the clippings (no, I didn’t leave the nasty clippings on the carpet.  Yuck.) *  made phone calls I needed to make …

Busy day in South Carolina…

My family all lives in South Carolina.  Today is a really busy day on all fronts for them. 1.  My grandmother is having her past hip replacement surgery re-done.  It has degenerated to the point that it slipped out of socket and is causing her great pain.  Even though she is already wheelchair bound, the …

the fish will live another day

We have a beta fish.  Don’t get me started on “why”.  I know, I know, a 2 year old and a 1 year old are not capable of taking care of a fish… it was an impulse buy. So, lately I have been becoming weary of caring for “fishie”.  Not that she takes a whole …

naked vs. nekkid

So, an interesting conversation that just happened (and we’re about to leave to go over to some friend’s house…) Me (to Matt):  why are you walking around in your underwear? Matt:  this is what I’m wearing. Me:  well, I’m not going then. Matt:  okay, I’ll eat your share of bbq. Me:  fine, take your nekkid …
