I Love That I Suck

Today’s Monday Listicles’ topic is 10 THINGS THAT I AM RUBBISH AT. I am totally using Stasha’s words there, because I never say rubbish. However, I’m starting to think I might put it into my verbal rotation. It really is a perfectly good word that is tragically underused by us American folk. Okay, okay, I…

New Digs!

Welcome! I’m so glad you made it here. I’m still getting used to everything so please be patient with me as I get my bearings. A special thank you to Booyah’s Momma for her patience with me through the seemingly endless process of redesign and transfer. I love what she’s done and can’t recommend her…

Soundtrack Of My Life

Today’s topic is ten songs that would make up my life’s soundtrack. 1. Absolutely (Story of a Girl) – Nine Days Because if we’re going to start my life off with a theme, it might as well be one of tears. Yes, I was a girl tortured by being perpetually in the friend zone. As…

What I Am

I am a mother.  I keep laundry and faces clean. I oversee homework, appointments, and activities, read stories and correct grammar. I make imaginary meals during tea parties and pack lunches for school. I ward off nightmares and kiss boo boos, wipe noses and bottoms. I am the first in the morning and the last…

Trust

I am an introvert. I do well in small groups, with people I already know and feel comfortable around. I can fake it, if necessary, but not for long, and with varying results. When I meet new people I usually smile, say hello, and then either stay and listen to their conversation, or move on….

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…

Best. Posts. Ever.

I am thrilled to link up some of my favorite posts from this past year for Mama Kat’s! I’m not going to do twelve though. Partly because I don’t have twelve favorite posts, and partly because the ones I’m linking to, I really want people to read. With so many amazing bloggers linking up, I…

Marchin On

Today’s Monday Listicles comes from Amanda at Lilahbility. She asked us to talk about our hometowns. Since I don’t really have any ONE specific hometown, I thought I’d make a list of ten places I’ve lived throughout my life. Feel free to chime in if any of these places are familiar to you. image source…

All I Want For Christmas Is…

I’m back again with Monday Listicles! It took me a while to get this up because I’ve been sleeping all day, but you still have time to make my Christmas wishes come true. 1. The perfect pair of brown leather boots. 2. A clean bathroom. 3. A ginormous TV over the mantle so I can…
