29 and holding. Plus 10.

So, I turned 39 today. I'm trying to feel positive about this and embrace the moment and all that jazz, but Ima keep it real and just say that it kind of sucks. I have a case of the birthday blues and feel pretty stupid and petty about it. And if anyone says "its better... Continue Reading →

girls be cray

There is a screaming contest happening on my back patio right now. The neighbors are probably going to call the cops or otherwise stage some sort of intervention. Kiddo had a birthday party at the house earlier today and is now embarking on that rite of passage known as her first slumber party...hosted by yours... Continue Reading →

summer storms

Kiddo is breathing heavy beside me, borderline snoring through the thunder and lightning. I love storms. At least those of the non-threatening, not gonna blow your house away kind. The snoring blond bundle turns six years old tomorrow. I'm not going to say the usual "I can't believe how big she's getting", or "She's growing... Continue Reading →

yeah, its been a minute…

...but people keep dying and getting sick on me. Since my last post two more grandmothers have passed, this time on The Accountant's side, and also within a few days of each other. Its been sad and exhausting. Four deaths within less than three months...too much. Kiddo has been sick with a stomach virus, then... Continue Reading →

for my brother

Happy Birthday! This sounds like us, doesn't it? It snowed last year too:  I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea. - Dylan Thomas Also, we need a more recent picture of us...we both look WAY cooler now. Love you!

saturday busyness

I'd love a nap but its already 4pm and that would just be bad news bears. Its been an extremely full day already. Kiddo had yet another birthday party to go to, this one all the way across town at one of her friend's homes. They had water slides and kiddie pools set up and... Continue Reading →

more than princesses

Five years ago today I endured hours of labor and came out of it looking pretty rough. (see photo evidence) I'll never do THAT again. Heh. No, I'm not kidding, seriously, I won't. One kid and done with that, so y'all can stop asking me when I'm having another. For real. Stop it. Right now.... Continue Reading →

party central

Today...kiddo's wild birthday party with some of her friends at "the bounce house place", as we call it. Whew. It was a hit but, whew. Kid was SO stinkin' excited. This is a really fun, if exhausting, age. Her actual birthday isn't until Wednesday so I guess we'll just consider this her birthday week since... Continue Reading →

time spent

Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi...
