SuperBowl XXXLLI (That’s Their Bra Size)

29th January 2009 | 2 Comments

So my favorite other twin mom has asked us womenz to blog about the upcoming superbowl for another blog she writes for.  Or something.  Whatever, I do what she says. I don’t blog about sports, obviously, but the truth is, I am a couch jumping, screaming at the TV football fan.  Not many people see [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

They burp. They fart. Their farts make you leave the room. They play video games. They stick their hands down their pants. They sniff their hands.

A New Friend and The Hair Salon

12th January 2009 | Closed

Last month, an old friend from high school called me to wish me a happy birthday.  During that conversation, I told him (again) that we had moved.  He mentioned to me that he knew someone in my area, a girl a few years younger that had worked with him at his current job.  He was [...]

My Two Favorite Things

10th January 2009 | Closed

My two favorite things have been happily combined on a blog.  I found the blog via the 2008 Weblog awards, where I daily vote for my absolute favorite blog, Looky Daddy!  Everyone reading this needs to go here and vote for Looky Daddy! right now.  Go ahead, I’ll wait. But while voting for him for [...]

I Have No Job

And whoever says “but you’re a mom!” next is going to get smacked. Before we moved I was working 2 jobs and going to college part time.  Then we moved.  No work, no school so far.  I am hoping to go back in the summer or the fall at the latest.  But for now: nada.  [...]
