For Today…Sunday, May 29, 2011 Outside my window…it’s dark, hot, the sprinkler is running.  Our poor grass shows signs of the heat.  We aren’t the best yard people so the fact that we are watering the yard is a big deal. I am wearing…a cool shirt, Snoopy boxers and flip flops.  Half of me is […]

Today is Squirt’s birthday.  He is sixteen now.  Yes, I have a sixteen year old boy.  And no, I can’t believe it.  When did this happen? Squirt, you are now closer to being a man than a boy.  And while overall I like what I see, you have no idea how it scares me to […]

After nonstop play-dates, Friday was finally going to be mine, and it is.  I just happen to feel like dirt.  And I’m not blaming it on the three glasses of wine I had last night.  I started feeling sick midway through.  I am feeling so badly that I skipped the gym so I could come […]

Yesterday was a calm day for us.  We slept in until 8:20, the first time in months and had a lazy day ending with Mass for the family. Lance asked each boy what they loved about me, their favorite thing to do with me and their favorite food I make. Squirt: that I am caring, […]

I just typed my Daybook for today and it was long and wonderful…and despite realizing that it probably wasn’t saved, I went to another screen.  I hate when that happens.  So until I find time to write again, go check out what I had to say about the end of Big Love.  I was sad […]

The other day I decided that I needed to make myself look good. Presentable. I ran into a friend from the swim club at Costco and there I was: hair up, still in my gym clothes. And I was embarrassed. Because I always look like that. This lady has never seen me look good. So […]

Am I a Grinch about certain Christmas traditions? Maybe a bit. Let’s just say I’m over Elf on the Shelf and it’s only day one for him in our house. I decorated yesterday, and out he came to watch over the kids so he could report their behavior to Santa. Cute idea, I guess, but […]

For Today…May 31, 2010 Outside my window…Did I mention I live in Texas? Houston to be exact? Everyone thinks Austin has much nicer weather. I went to school there, I remember, it doesn’t. Humid and Hot is still Humid and Hot no matter where you are. Austin has so much we want to do outdoors […]

Have I mentioned that I joined Facebook? My excuse is Chelsea. 🙂 It’s the best way to spy on her, I mean, keep up with her while she’s away at college. Not really, she has me on limited access. Because you know, I was an angel while at college. I can’t imagine what she is […]

I have finally fallen for Starbucks. So much so that I may be giving up Starbucks for Lent next year. I’ve graduated from medium to large coffee, and sometimes a cranberry orange scone. Twice a day. I used to bribe the kids with the Horizons milk they sell until I realized how much sugar it […]
