General Life

Been Lazy.

I’ve obviously been neglecting this blog lately. I apologize. Life has actually been pretty quiet and uneventful so I’ve just sat back and enjoyed the brief pause and taken full advantage of it. This month (May) will be a full one. Gab has quite a few school events going on….2 field days and 2 field trips. Paul’s birthday is at the end so we...

Interesting News.

Recently a painting that’s pretty well thought to be done by Hitler sold for $143,358 at an auction. It’s not a great painting, but obviously, the painter is infamous. I’ve often thought about his work, what it would sell for and who would buy it. To have it is hold just a piece of history. A very ugly, brutal, sickening history, but history none...

Earth Day Today!

Today is the day we’re supposed to be aware of our earth. We’re supposed to give back (plant trees), not take away (recycle), and go easy on our resources (gas, electricity). So what am I gonna do?

Good stuff 😀 One of my friends on Facebook recently wrote his parents sent him some (he’s out of state, too). Now I’ve been craving the stuff for days!...

Entirely Too Busy.

A couple days ago I posted writing was getting dry. Life, however, has been so busy. Yesterday I had to take dh an hour away to a doctor…minor thing, but he was in the hospital (to get the procedure done) from 7:45 to noon. We left the house at 6:15 am. We grabbed lunch on the way home (he wasn’t supposed to eat before...

Just One Trick Today.

Naturally, it being April Fool’s Day, I had to do something to somebody. My dd and I were discussing this last night so it was on her mind this morning. So she was out. And the boys are too little. And my mom’s in Florida for a week so she was out. That left my dh. So I played it cool and mild. “Hey,...

Redneck Friday

Sadly (or funnily) some of these apply to my family though I won’t go into detail. You take a load to the dump and bring back more than you took.  dad You ever cut your grass and found a car. dad The Halloween pumpkin on your front porch has more teeth than your wife. You think taking a bubble bath starts with eating beans...
