My Tuesday Morning

The thing about birthdays is….sometimes you have to deal with issues like driver’s license renewal. My birthday is Friday, and I’ve been procrastinating the trip to the Department of Public Safety. Now I’m just days away from my license being expired. D’Oh! So, this morning my husband took the kids to school, and I headed …

It’s hard having to say No

It’s hard to say no to puppies. Especially when those puppies are 3 weeks old and right up in your face. Since my kids had Monday off from school, we drove to my Mother’s home (way out in the country) to visit with her, my Grandmother and 6 new puppies. Kids PLUS puppies equals LOVE …

Proof that household chores are evil

This is a real picture. I took it with my iPhone at a local grocery store a number of months ago. I’m prepping for surgery tomorrow morning. My CT scan showed a severely deviated septum and a bone spur in my nose. They believe this is causing the headaches I have been suffering from as …

The date-night that wasn’t~Project Marriage

My Project Marriage submission this month is not a normal submission. I am writing about the fact that I was not able to fulfill the challenge with a “away from home” date. This month’s challenge was Date Night. I have a confession to make, my husband and I don’t use (non-family) babysitters. We just don’t. …

One Hundred

This is my 100th post. I’ve thought and thought, trying to decide how to make my 100th post special. I received the award from a sweet BF (blogger friend) of mine. Chica Andaluza (Tanya) writes about living in Spain with her “big man”, gardening, building a new home, and cooking. I adore her blog. If …

He is the “Moons Over My Hammy”

I am participating in a wonderful blog project called Project Marriage. This month we have been asked to write about our love story. I’ve always been a fan of the all-night diner. I spent many an hour(or four) in high school and college sitting at Denny’s or IHOP drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes (no judgment please) …
