Is This Thing On?

23rd November 2013 | Closed

First, we are all still alive.  The oldest two are 8 now, Josh just turned 2 and Baby #4 is due to make an appearance in about 2.5 months.  Yes, Baby #4.  You read that correctly, no need to adjust your screen.    Something I had wanted to blog about, in the get-it-off-my-chest kind of way, [...]

Christmas Gifts for Mom (AKA Nothing)

10th December 2012 | Closed

We all know Christmas isn’t about gifts.  Except that it pretty much is, good luck convincing yourself otherwise.  Let’s be honest, if you actually went an entire Christmas season without receiving one gift, you’d either cry or someone calls you “mom” and you go “oh right…”   Because mom does all the shopping.  And night [...]

Another Four Years

28th September 2012 | Closed

(I don’t know why this isn’t posting the actual post title I typed in which is: Another Four Years.) The husband finally re-enlisted today.  So he is officially doing four more years in the Corps and we are tagging along for the ride.    I say “finally” because the paperwork has been going around tables [...]

More Ridiculous Holidays

11th May 2012 | Closed

There are some holidays that I consider Hallmark Holidays; mostly made up by commercialism to get people to buy shit.  These Hallmark Holidays include, but are not limited to: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, Secretaries Day (think they changed the name of that one, though), etc.  Today is one of them, [...]

Our 5 Year Plan

27th April 2012 | Closed

I have had friends who’ve had 5 year plans.  Graduate from college, get a career job, get married, have a baby, etc.   I guess I had a five year plan at some point, but the college part alone took 4 years and I already had babies by then and was divorced soo..  my five [...]

I Have A Blog?

5th April 2012 | Closed

Holy crap, this is still here? One might say I’ve “forgotten” to blog.  One might also say I’ve been busy.  I’ll go with option two. Let’s see, since my last entry in November of 2010 I turned 30.  And by 30 I mean 22 again of course.  Then 2011 was busy; we got busy and [...]

Six Months Ago

28th August 2010 | 1 Comment

Six months ago today I lost one of my best friends.  I had misplaced Derek in California with one of my other best friends, April.  And then six months ago today, she called me crying.   Twelve or thirteen years ago Derek’s father barely survived an aortic aneurysm.  At least, I think that’s what it [...]

Our awesome webmaster is doing some updates!  So in honor of website updates and the fact that I haven’t updated the old site in ooooh.. six months or so, here’s some update from us: The twins are four and a half. They are in school. They LOVE school. They got their first report cards recently [...]

Boasting About my Husband

4th April 2009 | Closed

I think I’ve posted once or twice about the wonderfulness that is my husband, but really those incidences are just the tip of the iceberg.  I think this is going to require bullet points. When he comes to bed, he brings up my slippers and lays them on my side of the bed. If he [...]

“Roses are red, Violets are blue, I promise next year, I’ll hand these to you.” All together now:  aaaaaaaaaaaaawww.
