Hanging on a Moment

I have difficulty living in the moment. I don’t carpe diem very well. And I certainly struggle when asked to go with the flow. I’m much better at planning moments than I am at enjoying them. In fact, I think I’d actually prefer to plan things for other people to enjoy. I don’t know why…

Three Years of Amelia

Amelia turned three this month. It’s been a big year for her. She started school, got out of diapers, and discovered the Disney Princesses. She is a full blown girlie girl, preferring tutus to pants and requesting pedicures on a regular basis. She loves to shop and is responsible for picking out several pieces in…

Five Days

I have the next five days off. Five days to catch up on laundry and clean the bathrooms. Five days to redeem myself from last week’s dinners. Five days of parks, parties, sleepovers, and movie nights. Five days of bath time giggles and goodnight books. Five days to snuggle my kids in the morning and…

Guilty No More

I wasn’t sure I was going to get this list posted in time. It’s been a rough weekend and I’m still recovering from 24 hours of crazy ER shifts. Better late than never though, right? Here’s the list of my TOP 10 GUILTY PLEASURES! 1. Starbucks – I realize for some this is a staple,…

Sleeping Beauty

My parents separated when I was five years old. My mother left my four brothers and I with our father, who raised us as a single parent until he married eight years later. I don’t have many memories of living with my mother, but the ones I have are vivid. She spent a lot of…

My Girl Likes To…

…potty all the time! These photos have not been altered. It is in fact, our little ladybug, sitting on actual toilets, sans screaming. It only took three days and a bag of jelly beans to get this girl out of her diapers. I’m hoping this, combined with her love of Tramp Stamps, isn’t going to…

Treading Water

My house is a wreck. There are piles of toys, books and clothes all over the floors while papers, dirty dishes, and miscellaneous trinkets cover the shelves, counters and tables. My bed isn’t made. The kid’s rooms are just as bad and I haven’t the energy nor the desire to straighten or clean them. I…

Two Years In

My first post here was January 6, 2010. I started my blog for the sole purpose of putting things down. I wanted to start writing, to express my private thoughts and feelings. I wanted to use my blog as a way to remember and grow. I never considered having anybody, other than close friends and…

Promises, Promises

The first Monday Listicles topic of the year was submitted by A Mountain Momma and I love it! It’s a twist on the normal New Year’s Resolutions that we all feel obligated to make. Here is my list of 10 New Year’s Resolutions I will never keep: 1. Get more sleep. This is impossible. Aside…

My Broken Heart Blog

I woke up to a sad realization yesterday. After over a year of wonderful service, my blog has broken and I am unable to fix it. Mostly because I am too crazy busy with my life to spend any extra time diddling around ongoogle and taking night classes on code. Unfortunately, my knowledge of”all things…
