Beauty Night

At some point tonight, while I was bustling around the kitchen, putting away the leftover food and wiping my gooey hands on my apron, the thought occurred to me that it’s been a while since I’ve had my eyebrows waxed. That thought was quickly followed by the realization that there is no convenient time to […]

Be my Valentine

I mentioned in passing a while back that I had made an agreement with myself that I would not make a single skirt until I’d lost 5 lbs? Admittedly, that’s an easier deal to make with oneself in the middle of winter when one would prefer to be bundled up in cozy sweatpants and would […]

What’s that you say? I was too busy daydreaming to hear you.

My 7-year-old has some issues with time management, and a friend suggested I do a little research on something known as Inattentive ADD. Well, after an hour or so of poking around, I don’t really know if my son has it, but I’m pretty sure that I do! Ack! Check out this list of symptoms. […]

The day the screens went silent

This morning I tried a new soap. One minute I was a 36-year-old woman taking a shower and the next I was five or six, in a movie theater with my grandparents watching Pete’s Dragon and eating butterscotch candies from Granny’s pocketbook. That’s some powerful soap. Ahem. Anyway. I’ve decided we spend too much time […]

How much improvement can one girl take?

This is everything I ate yesterday. Wait – what’s that sound? Why, it’s the collective gasp-in-horror from all of the motherly-types out there reading this. My own mother scolded me in the comments for this photo on flickr. She knows me pretty well – you’d think she’d have realized by now that I eat like […]

Going crazy. Wanna come?

To borrow a phrase from Aidan, “THAT’s it!” (It’s very important that there be much emphasis on the word “that’s” if you want to get the full effect.) There are parts of my house that are scary-messy. Not just messy. Scary-messy. So I’m getting back on the Flylady bandwagon. Well, not completely. I may just […]
