Teeth & Valentine’s Day.

Yeah, odd combination of words, I know. But it’s 2 topics. I couldn’t pick just one. Our baby cut his first tooth yesterday! We were anxiously awaiting this milestone…he’s been a slow teether. The other bottom front one should arrive soon 😀 Now for V-Day. I’m crossing my fingers for this one…every other occasion this year (dd’s bday, my bday, our anniversary) has been...

10 Ways to Order Pizza

Again, courtesy of my dd’s email. Change your accent every 3 seconds. Ask to rent a pizza. Order 2 toppings, then change your mind and say, “No, they’ll start fighting. Just one topping.” Ask if the pizza is organically grown. Demand to keep the pizza box and make a big deal out of it. Crack your knuckles into the receiver. Speak quieter as the...

I sent an email to the Chris LeDoux fan club, asking him how much he thinks the shirt would be worth. Not that I intend to sell it, just curious. He wrote back and told me he thought it would be “priceless…” Huh?? How does that help? There’s a few  things that could mean. He was being condescending. “Oh, yes, your precious shirt is...

LeDoux Shirt!

Since we’ve moved into our new closets, I figured now would be a good time to toss the old clothes we don’t wear…we’ve got 2 boxes! Now I’ve got to get them out of the living room. Sigh. Always something. My dd was in my closet yesterday and said, “You’ve got a flame shirt?” It’s a button-down shirt with black at the bottom and...

We have carpet! Hooray! Hopefully we’ll be able to get the majority of stuff moved in today! Can’t wait. Too bad dh is sick.

10 Things to do in an Elevator

My dd sent me an email that had 40 fun things to do in an elevator…and it was so funny I thought I’d pass it along. But I’m gonna just stick with my top 10. Whistle the first 7 notes of “It’s a Small World” over and over again. Stare, grinning, at other passengers for awhile. Then announce excitedly, “I’ve got new socks on!”...

10 Reasons Why I Need a Free Weekend Get-away!

And if you’re looking for someone to give one to, let me tell you why I’m right for you! I’ve had one child with croup and another with the flu. At the same time. It’s been 8 months since I’ve had a night without a kid in arm’s reach. I’ve had construction going on for 3 months. Half of the time of the construction,...

10 Things I’ve Figured Out.

The person who coined with the phrase “sleep like a baby” didn’t have kids and/or was a complete idiot. Boys like peeing everywhere…on walls outside, in mud puddles, on bugs, in buckets, in the bathtub… Matchbox vehicles somehow reproduce at night. It’s amazing how moms can do so much and get so little rest. Especially when one kid gets sick right after another gets...

Yay Me! and a Tag.

Today’s my birthday! Yay me 😀 How old am I? I’m 30. Yep, the big 3-0. No more 20’s. I’m on my way now to 40! Terrifying thought 😉 Dad to Two tagged me with  Random Things, and I figured today would be a good day to do it. He had 2 given to him, a 7 and an 8. I’m gonna stick to...

Living Room Pics

Here’s the before and after! The wood on the wall to the left is where the hall to the addition is. Of course, this is what was under the wood paneling and ceiling tiles. The space behind the couches was where 2 windows were (where the addition is now). Left wall is opposite to previous shot. Here’s the after! Wall opposite to previous shot....
