Stalled Out But Still Busy!

We’re at a lull in the adoption process for the moment. We’re waiting on our 2nd (and final) home study visit which will be in a couple weeks.

But life still goes on! My husband’s grandma died last week, so he’s going to Wisconsin for the funeral this week.

Next week Gab heads out to […]

New Topics.

Thanks to those who commented in my venting the last couple days. It’s great to hear what others have had to say.

Yesterday I had an extremely wicked migraine, one I just couldn’t shake, despite a cocktail of Excedrine Migr, extra strength Tylenol and my favorite, Percoset. Hopefully it’ll clear up today.

I hope any […]

Economic Scare(y).

The rumor is Washington Mutual went under because of a run on the bank yesterday. Word on the ‘net is that there have been a few other runs around the country. Sound familiar?

I’m Cheap.

We decided to par down our grocery bill lately. This can be difficult for me, since I like to make a wide variety of foods and they’re not usually boring or repetitive. I like the challenge of cooking complexly. So I came up with a menu for the week and thought I’d share, just in […]

I’ve done the bit of politics (that’s as far as I get!), the animal posts (LOVE animals), the kid post (Halloween)….

So I guess I’ll just ramble for a bit. Hope you don’t get bored!

I love this season. I love the […]

Palin vs. the “Can’t Do All” Dems

So now in the political realm there’s a big stink about Sarah Palin running because she has kids.

Since when did the Democrats think women should stay at home all the time?? They’ve held a strong point of women being able to work and raise a family. It’s typically Repubs that have the conservative view […]

Headaches, Anyone?

So everyone knows I have chronic headaches with a few migraines sprinkled in there for fun. Sometimes it feels like no one really gets what an impact these have on my day-to-day life. Every day, my choice is to feel miserable and in pain, or take a few Excedrine Migr. and feel miserable and drugged. […]

Are Big Families Fading?

A recent report on FOXNews states that “In the last 30 years, the number of women age 40 to 44 with no children has doubled, from 10 percent to 20 percent. And those who are mothers have an average of 1.9 children each, more than one child fewer than women of the same age in […]
