real friends & FB friends

Last week, a girl I am an acquaintance of decided to log out of facebook for a while.  Her reasoning was that if people really cared about her, or what’s going on with her, they could call or email to talk to her.  There’s more to this story, and I fear it is a mostly …

the good and the bad

The Good:  yesterday I invested in a family pass to our local zoo.  It’s pretty nice, but not something I enjoy paying for every time out of pocket.  The kids can only take about 2 hours of it before they start whining… so “family pass” was the option I went for.  For a whopping $65 …

January 11th, and I am…

* thinking “O my, my 30th birthday is officially less than a month away” * sad to hear news that a high school friend’s little girl was diagnosed with a brain tumor * wishing that it was closer to March 3rd than it is * being somewhat productive when it comes to writing test questions * …

the pressure is killing me

I generally try to not be a whiny-baby sort of person.  I realize that while there are negative things that happen in life (sometimes, very negative), all in all, I’m blessed.  HOWEVER… today is a change from the norm.  I’m going to allow myself the time it takes to type this to feel pathetically sorry …

i can’t turn right!

So, Matt is out on the lawn mower, which for us, on our 2 acres, generally is a day-long process for him.  Between mowing, trimming etc… it just takes a while.  So, anyways, I have a Pampered Chef party to do tonight, and so I told him that I was going to come get him …

rain, rain, go away…

I am fully aware that since I live in South Central Texas… and area currently in the midst of a really bad drought… I should be thankful for the rain.  And don’t get me wrong.  I am.  Really, truly am. HOWEVER… Rain makes the days as a stay-at-home mom very crazy!  It’s like winter, only …

DAY TWO

Day two of Spring Cleaning Week is here.  Yesterday I finished things off by having Matt take the CR-V to a vacuum place and suck all of the crusted, crushed crackers and cheerios out of the floorboards.  Looks pretty darn good today.  I also took the carseats apart and washed the seat covers, which need …

disconnected

Yesterday was a weird day.  I just felt reallyreallyreally disconnected.  Like, I didn’t know what was going on anywhere outside of the walls of my house.  Oh yeah, I was.  Agggghhhh!!! So, the service that does our phone/internet sent out a polite little notice last week that they were going to be doing some work …

yes, my feet are still attached, but barely.

Tonight I decided to give myself a little home pedicure.  It’s hard to get out and do that these days, and what with the economy being in the tank and all, I think maybe wise to save the $30 it would cost for the pampering. So, I run the hot-but-not-too-hot water in the big tub, …
