A Taste of Spring!

The past few days’ has been awesome…just warm enough for a long-sleeve t-shirt instead of a coat or sweaters. Today’s supposed to be high 50’s-low 60’s with rain….which is way better than snow in my book. I notice on days like this I “wake up” a bit…I think I’ve always had a bit of seasonal depression, a condition during the winter when moods get...

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...

Daughter Drama.

We’re moved into the new master bedroom/closets now, 90% anyway…dh has to get his dresser down and we just have to clean up a bit. He got the curtains hung and they look great. So exciting! Now to my main thought… I’m really surprised how focused kids are at my dd’s age (11) on themselves and their small view of the world. Naturally, it’s...

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.

7 Years Ago…

Was when dh and I got married! Yep, today is our 7th year anniversary. 2-2-2002. We thought that would be an easy/fun date to remember. If the carpet comes today, we’ll be spending our evening moving into our new bedroom. If not, I guess it’ll be a regular day.  He is taking today and tomorrow off work just in case we want to go...

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!”...

Ornery Vent…

Our carpet was supposed to show up Thursday. Nothing. So we figured maybe Friday. Nothing. We were supposed to move our furniture into the new bedroom this weekend. Not anymore. Grrr! I really hate it when stuff like this happens. On the up side, dh and I went out and bought curtains last night!! Yay!! Can’t wait to get them up…except we have to...
