The Water Here

9th July 2012 | Closed

Our whole family is enjoying the beautiful water along the Emerald Coast of Florida.  There’s no waiting until August when the water is warm enough to go in.  There’s no timing your entry (and exit!) into the water with the waves so you don’t get pummeled into the sand.    We have been swimming in [...]

Since it has been so soooo long since I’ve posted here, I should probably update with some pictures of my adorable & smart sons.


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 [...]


Birthdays and Rain and Shots, Oh My!

9th May 2009 | Closed

The twins’ fourth birthday has come and gone, along with their party and a seemingly never ending rainstorm.  We were lucky enough to have excellent weather the day of their party, but then it rained for 6 days straight.  The weather finally broke yesterday and seems to be sunny once again today. The weather did [...]


VDay – 0, USMC – 2 & Updatery

11th February 2009 | Closed

Joe and I are coming up on our second Valentine’s Day together.  And by “together” I, of course, mean apart.  I suppose there’s always next year, right?  If all goes as planned, there will be about 50 more V-Day’s, the Marine Corps can’t possibly take ALL of them.  And no, USMC, that is not a [...]

Joe Gets a Lesson

24th January 2009 | 1 Comment

Nick’s 3 3/4 year old brain seems to think it can control his level of hunger.  As in “Even though I refuse to eat my dinner, I won’t be hungry later.”  Joe, in his infinite wisdom, tried to explain to Nick that getting hungry is kinda like going to the bathroom, you can’t control the [...]


Nick’s Opinion of Democracy

21st January 2009 | Closed

I turned on the inauguration coverage yesterday to watch history.  To finally watch a man I voted for take the oath of office.  Finally.  As the chills swept over me, I excitedly said to Nick “we’re getting a new president today!” “Can I open the present?” “No no, not present.  Pres-ah-dent.” “ooooh.  Can I open [...]


Nick Knows What I Like

2nd January 2009 | Closed

I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned it before, but Nick has his favorite Yellow Blankie.  Yellow Blankie is with him almost all the time.  He doesn’t carry it from store to store, but sometimes Yellow Blankie will come along for the car ride, sometimes she stays home.  Yes, she.  I have been corrected sevaral times [...]


I Need To Write Stuff Down

19th December 2008 | 2 Comments

The twins always do cute, funny stuff and I think “oh I could blog that, that was funny.”  But alas, 4 1/2 minutes later they are fighting about something and I forget that they were ever cute or funny. Here’s one I do remember though.  One day last week I told the twins that we [...]
