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 […]Read More: Beauty Night
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 […]Read More: Be my Valentine
Food, glorious food
I’ve spent all darn day doing food-related things. I even took my Project365 photo while food shopping. I was up late last night coming up with a menu for the week – one that consisted of some new things, some healthy things, and some easy things. Lately I’ve been taking the easy way out as […]Read More: Food, glorious food
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. […]Read More: What’s that you say?

Honors, Favorites & Pudge
I think today instead of ending with my thankful thought, I will start with it. Guess what – Kim from Today’s Creative Blog featured me yesterday! Isn’t that cool? I encourage you to go check out Kim’s blog. I’ve had it on my must-read list for some time now. She has a knack for finding […]Read More: Honors, Favorites & Pudge
This is not one of those times
Some days when the boys are home from school, I get all domestic and get in the mood to take care of laundry, clean up the kitchen, maybe catch up on some business email. This is not one of those days. When it became clear to me that the guys were hunkering down for a […]Read More: This is not one of those times
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 […]Read More: The day the screens went silent
Greetings from the abyss
Hi. Remember me? I used to blog here. I got on this “organizational tear” for the last two days that completely consumed me. I’ll save you the gory details, but in a nutshell, I finally found an alternate calendar and a task management system to try so that I could stop using Outlook. I’ve been […]Read More: Greetings from the abyss
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 […]Read More: How much improvement can one girl take?
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 […]Read More: Going crazy. Wanna come?
