Post Christmas brain dump... the real Christmas post is still swirling inside my head.

This is my life.... That's why my blog is a haphazard mess of documented chaos.  It's graced with all kinds of good intentions... but I'm on a team of 2 against 6,  and it seems we are usually on the losing side of just about every issue.&n...

Thanksgiving Day 2013

I'm starting my New Years Resolutions early this year.  Maybe if it's not just a bunch of "set myself up to fail" declarations...  I can aim for more of  like, a lifestyle change?  I won't beat myself up so much if I miss the m...

The Boss...

Oh Leo.You ARE the boss! You tell us what to do, and how to do it... but you are such a commander in chief when you boss us around, so that somehow, you end up getting away with it.  You were the most ornery of all of my babies, and things alway...

The Walking Dead | Senoia Georgia Detour

We were making good time on our way back home from Florida when we started thinking about  dinner.  We started seeing signs for Atlanta on the exit signs, and whenever I think of Atlanta... I always think of my favorite t.v. series, The W...

Aunt Valerie and Uncle Dale: The vacation post that was not so easy to write...

It's been 18 years since I've been back, and not in dog years either.  If it were... it would be a lot less shameful.  My Aunt Valerie and Uncle Dale moved to Sarasota FL the year I started kindergarten.  That takes us back quite a few...

My first book report in over 18 years.... Press Here.

We love books.  Just like finding an amazing new musical artist... there is a certain sort of snobbery that comes from discovery the next bigbook!Oh, how I used to love to read.  Um, yeah... before I had kids.  (I would kill for the fr...

All in a days work.

My crazy sister likes to ask my kids over for sleepovers every now and then.  She has 3 girls of her own, so when you add even a "few" of my kids into the mix, you have yourself an instant party.  She has the "Harlem Shake" video to prove i...

An "impressive" case of thrush. Ain't nobody got time for that!

No photos for this blog post.  They would need a disclaimer in the gross department.  Poor Eliza has thrush.  Apparently according to our nurse practioner, Laurie, who saw her today... it's pretty impressive.  I'm pretty sure that...

Biggest brother... Littlest Sister

A few weeks ago I had to take Mark to the doctor after he got hit in the leg with a baseball at one of his last games of the fall ball season.  He got to miss a bit of school in the morning, and I treated him to lunch.  Sometimes being inju...

Finding Contentment

It's hard to find that sweet spot between enjoying the things you have, and striving for more.  Not material things more, but more from what's in store.  More from what the future holds.  Sometimes it's hard to remember to to find peac...

I remember knowing what it's like to "know it all"...

Mark starts high school on Thursday... and I'm getting a little bit of all those "joys" of motherhood my own mother promised me.  You know, the moody, crabby, angsty teenager that was going to be twice... no, THREE times worse than me?Yeah. ...
