She paraded right in front of me so many times that night. I was 6 or 7 rows up on the bleachers and she was on the front row down below. It was as if she was on display. I had my one dear husband to my right and three of our four [...]
I’m pretty sure I told you all in my very first post that I would most likely not be sharing recipes.
Well, I guess I lied.
But I think you will forgive me when you see what I have here for you tonight! I surprised my family after [...]
I can’t believe I’m typing this but here it goes…
I am becoming a morning person. (and all you see written there is, “I am becoming old.”) I am. Both are true. I like mornings and I am old.
I grew up with a “morning person” – my dad. [...]
Basketball season is pretty much over and so my boys are all in this “let’s work out twice a day, look at our muscles in the mirror, and then lift a few more” mode. The two oldest C’s had to wait until THE season was over because (get this – haha) lifting weights [...]
“Mom, where are you going?!?!?! NOT that way – THIS way!”, as he points to the FRONT of the store. “Mom, you’re like a tiger – the way you go through all the aisles looking at EVERY single thing.” says the other disgruntled shopper boy. Goodness – I didn’t realize tigers enjoyed shopping?

(“madly in love” meaning we used their names in our “MASH” games and we giggled uncontrollably when we would get within 100 feet [...]
It is Wednesday and I didn’t update the blog yesterday so it seems like today I should. I haven’t found the list of blogging rules yet, but keeping it updated seems like one of them.
However, I have nothing funny to share, nothing profound (what else is new), nothing exciting, and [...]
We celebrate President’s Day BIG.
The Holiday kicked off with what I thought was a drunken moose in the house at 3am. It was only Cameron. He had stumbled into his brother’s bedroom to look for a sleeping bag. He had the chills and wanted to move upstairs to our room. [...]
Next to labor and getting my eyebrows waxed by someone who doesn’t know enough to apply pressure on the area as soon as they rip off the cotton strip, yesterday from 4:45pm to 5:45pm was one of THE hardest things I’ve EVER endured ever. My two middle-school aged boys had a basketball play-off [...]
