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, …

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 …

taking more precautions

Well, it’s officially happened.  The swine flu has taken its first Texan, and I believe, first American (at least on record).  The victim was a 23 month old toddler… which just hits a leeeettle bit too close to home for me.  I myself have a 19 month old child, and one who is almost 3.  …

trapped by the swine flu…

Had another Pampered Chef show last night.  It was a smaller one, which I kinda like.  Seems like the fewer the people, the more I actually get to interact with the party-goers.  So, this one was at my SIL’s house.  We made the Mexican Chicken “Lasagna” in the Deep Covered Baker for dinner, and then …

Reply with love

Ever had anyone do something, or say something to you that really just hurt?  Please.  If you haven’t, then, really, you need to remove yourself from the bubble you live in.  We all have.  It’s just part of human nature.  Sometimes the other person does/says something intentional that hurts us, and they mean for it to hurt.  …

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 …

a treatise

Okay.  So this actually isn’t a “treatise” on anything.  I just felt like using the word.  The last time I read anything with that word in the title was in high school.  I wanted to take a nap after about 1 paragraph.  Hopefully this will not bring on similar results… I’m a TLC junkie.  Yep.  …
