Why I Am Running

People always ask me how I can run.  It’s so boring, they say.  It’s not for me.  Honestly, it gives me time alone with my own thoughts.  Time to pray, daydream, plan for my day and mainly just relax.  Time truly for myself. I start and end each run thinking of the same thing~ a […]

With the sound of a whistle and the call of adult swim, summer is officially over.  We spent the afternoon swimming, rushed through showers, made pizzas, read books and prayed.  Kids in bed by 9:30.  Lance’s goal was 8:15~ no clue what he was thinking.  Snax didn’t fall asleep until after 10.  Tomorrow is going […]

As I’m getting ready to celebrate another anniversary, I was thinking of my life before marriage.  I hit the jackpot. I think back on my childhood, and it was great.  There were after school activities, vacations, I Love You’s all the time, hugs, baking time and favorite meals.  The only thing missing was that coveted […]

Sure, I know it’s past the Christmas season, but I started this post way back when I thought I might find the time to finish a post. So just a word or two on Santa and that effing elf. First, yes, I believed in Santa, and so do my kids.  That said, almost every single […]

:: It’s Friday.  What does this mean?  My husband comes home tonight!  We’re pretty pathetic about time apart from each other.  I know I am very blessed to have a husband that would rather be with me than anyone else.  While Radio Row is hardly real competition, I know he’d feel the same way no […]

On the feast of St. Nicholas

The kids woke up to gold coins at breakfast to signify St. Nicholas’ generosity and new pj’s.  And of course, books. I used to buy the boys matching pj’s, but it appears those years have passed.  In fact, I could only find pj pants this year for Goose, Baby Hulk and Squirt.  Squirt scored big […]

A Birthday Wish

Happy Birthday to my amazing mom.  I was thinking of St. Martin of Tours, today being his feast day, and the story about him slicing his coat in two to give to the beggar.  That’s how my mom gives.  Over and over.  To me and my family.  I know just how lucky I am to […]

I made cookies yesterday.  Bomb ass cookies.  I make cookies for one reason.  Cookie dough.  I was in a hurry, so I didn’t let anyone help.  Snax sat by the stove staring at the entire process.  When I started eating the dough, he asked if I liked it.  I told him that I liked the […]

The Facebook Dilemma

In the world of Facebook or Twitter, I’m a Twitter kind of person.  Someone retweeted something like “Facebook makes you hate the people you know while Twitter makes you love people you don’t.”  I couldn’t agree more. Regardless, I do have a Facebook account.  I don’t post anything ever, but every once in a while […]
