Another Edition of Thursday Thirteen

November 30, 2012

I attended a Christmas Card addressing party on Wednesday, and my friend Becky asked if I had given any thought to reviving Thursday Thirteen (through the alphabet) during the six months McDaddy will be deployed like I did last time. Actually, I have thought about it, and I’ve decided I probably will do it because […]

Another Clever Christmas Letter

November 28, 2012

If you happen to be on our annual McFamily Christmas card list, this would be a great time for you to click that little red “X” up there in the corner of your screen. Otherwise, you might ruin the mystery and suspense that surrounds our annual Christmas letter when it arrives in your mailbox.  Either way. Your […]

What I Learned This Week

November 27, 2012

The last time I checked in here, I gave you a list of things I was thankful for. I should have included electricity on that list. At 8:42 AM on Thanksgiving morning, I woke up to discover that our electric was off. The turkey had been cooking in the oven since 6:00 AM, and I […]

I’m So Thankful

November 22, 2012

I have cooked all evening. Well actually, I have cleaned all evening. For the past several years, it has been a day-before-Thanksgiving-tradition that my parents come over to our house, and we spend the evening preparing a lot of the food for our Thanksgiving feast. Tonight, we made most of the desserts, the turkey, the dressing, […]

Christmas Letters

November 21, 2012

I am one of those people. And if I’m being honest, I have contemplated not being one of them this year. As best I can calculate, I’ve been one of them for the past thirteen years. And after thirteen years, I think you have to ask, is it time?  Is it time to ax the McFamily […]

What I Learned This Week

November 20, 2012

I’ve had a very productive day. In fact, I feel like I’ve conquered the world. In reality though, all I’ve done was cleaned out every kitchen and bathroom closet and tackled the hall closet. Two bags of trash, plus a garbage bag of donations for the Goodwill, and I fell like I’ve really done something. I […]

Cheap Entertainment and So Much More

November 19, 2012

I feel like its been a sweet forever since I last posted here on the blog. Sometimes life happens, and it’s necessary to back away from the computer and do some laundry. Or get caught up on the DVR. Whatever. Anyway, during my brief hiatus, here’s whats been happening in this neck of the woods. 1. As PTA treasurer […]

Letters To Crazy People

November 16, 2012

It’s been way too long since I last wrote letters to crazy people. Dear Little Old Lady: You don’t know me. You almost swerved right into the side of my beautiful little chili-pepper red Saturn Sky, but you don’t know me. As you changed lanes yesterday, you did so without looking, or signalling, or paying […]

What I Learned This Week

November 13, 2012

Y’all. It has been a great day. Early this morning, my iPhone dinged alerting me that an item I had posted on eBay had sold. It’s been years since I bought or sold anything on eBay, but I heard from a reliable source that things were going well over there. I was tickled to death […]

Humbled

November 12, 2012

I woke up to several posts on my Facebook wall thanking McDaddy for his service to our country. I was humbled to think that several of those posts came from blog readers I have never met. If you knew McDaddy in real life, you would know that recognition or attention is the last thing that […]
