Do You Fight?

Over at Glue 4 Families, there was a good post on marrital conflict. It’s funny she put it up because this topic came up at our November Girl’s Night last night. We were playing a game where everyone is given a card with a different beginning of a sentence. Then each finishes the sentence and everyone else guesses if it’s true or false. It...

It’s All in the Parenting.

Robin has an interesting post that made me decide to write this one. His point is right on. My husband and I have always discussed getting a gun for the house. I grew up in Texas where everyone and their dog and the dog’s fleas have guns. Babies pack pistols in their diapers and toddlers shove a shotgun into their diaper bag. My dad...

Why, Thank You!!

Look what Dad to Two gave me!! It’s the Proximidade Award. He tells me that “This blog invests and believes, in ‘proximity’ [meaning, that blogging makes us ‘close’ – being close through proxy]. These blogs are all charming and they aim to show the marvels of friendship. Let’s give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to eight bloggers that in turn...

What Do You Think?

Ok, I’m going to post a topic I find interesting. But I want to say now, that immature and personally attacking comments will not be tolerated. This is meant to be an intelligent discussion, and if you can’t play like an adult, don’t try. I recently watched a show that talked about gender identity disorder. This is when a person, child in this case,...

My Eyebrows are Crooked…

Remember when I blew up hot eyebrow wax on my chest, neck and face? If you do, you’ll remember how it burned the heck out of me and I swore to not use the stuff again. I’m rethinking. I recently bought a Sally Hensen wax kit, not realizing until I got home it was the microwaveable kind. Oh, well, I figured, I need something,...

Today’s the Day!

Fellow Americans, today is the day to decide on the future of our country!! It’s an amazing  privilege to be able to vote and I encourage each of you to get ready and make your final decision.  If you’re still undecided, you better hurry! I think both candidates have something good to offer, and either way it goes, it’s really not going to be...

A few of you have commented that I’ve been having problems w/ seeing the blog or entrecard. Thank you for noticing, b/c it doesn’t always do it for me. Kinda like taking a noisy car to the mechanic, then it quits. I let dh know (he does the techy side of it) and he fixed the latest problem. So, thank you and always feel...

The Pastor’s Ass.

My mom sent me this in email, so I thought I’d share! The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and it won again. The local paper read: PASTOR’S ASS OUT FRONT The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another...

Our “Oh, so fun!” Weekend.

Friday started out good…Dh took me out to lunch at my fave restaurant. Then we had plans to get new blinds for our dd’s room (the one we redid). But we must have miscalculated the time because when we were done with lunch, I realized I had to rush to get to dd’s school. They were having their Halloween parade and party (costumes and...

Happy Halloween!

On this occasion, I thought I’d tell a couple true stories! When I was a teenager, we had 2 neighbors (yes, only 2…we lived out in the boonies…we all had roughly 15+ acres). Neighbor Jones was a great family; I used to babysit their 2 kids. They had lots of animals like we did and we all got along well. Neighbor Smith wasn’t quite...
