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 [...]


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 [...]


Yup, I’m a Bitch. And Proud of It.

9th May 2012 | Closed

My husband is in the military, which makes me a “military spouse.”  Sometimes I’m cool with the title, but honestly there are a lot of times when I wish I could just say “my husband is a mechanic” and leave it at that.  Today has been one of those days. Good ole Facebook brought me [...]


Two v. One, or How I Love My Children Equally, But More so When They Arrive One at a Time

4th May 2012 | Closed

I’m not up for Mother of the Year anyway, so here goes. I have a set of twins who will be SEVEN tomorrow.  This is mind boggling to me.   One might say the twins were  a bit of an accident.  As in “Doctor, or so you call yourself, I’ve been taking these pills that [...]


Updated Picture Post

28th April 2012 | Closed

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 [...]


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 [...]


Birthdays Suck

18th November 2010 | Closed

I’m sure I must have bitched about my birthday being a week before Christmas before, but honestly, who gets tired of bitching?  Not me, I have a vagina. So yesterday I almost had a melt-down in front of 23 Kindergarteners. And their parents.  And my husband.  It would be mildly embarrassing except I don’t care. [...]


Joe’s Conversations. (Don’t read this one, Mom.)

5th October 2010 | Closed

Joe likes to make up situations in his head.  Ya know, as a “wouldn’t it be funny if this happened” kinda deal. So today I asked him if he could meet me at the clinic for an upcoming ob/gyn appointment.  He asked why and I told him that the doctor is a man and I [...]
