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, [...]


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 [...]

Birthdays and Moving and Whatnot

17th December 2008 | 9 Comments

Today is my birthday!  It’s also Sarah’s birthday!  Because we are the two coolest twin-moms with the same birthday around. Joe made me a wonderful present, but it seems he left it in South Carolina when he moved out.  After almost two weeks of searching, he finally just told me what it was.  He’s still [...]


Goodbye November

1st December 2008 | 1 Comment

In years past, I have participated in the November Blog-a-thon.  I can’t remember what it’s actually called and don’t feel like looking it up, but it’s that thing where you blog every single day in November.  Well this year I completely forgot about it, and by the time I remembered it, November was more than [...]


Family Dynamics

4th September 2008 | 3 Comments

Nick is really into family dynamics and roles.  Which I suppose is a good thing considering he does come from a broken home. Everything has to have a mommie and a daddy.  We have the daddy Lightening McQueen racecar and the baby Ligtening McQueen racecar.  Or “Little Lightening” as Nick calls him.  Anything large is [...]
