Totally Random Nonsense

February 27, 2013

It is with regret that I announce that I shot my wad on the SLIMpossible diet today. While at the hospital for most of the day, I found myself with about six minutes to scarf down some “lunch”. I made a quick trip to the hospital snack bar and settled on a bag of Doritos […]

Pep In My Step

January 29, 2013

It was a beautiful day in our neighborhood. The good news is, it was a wonderful, beautiful, perfect for January 70 degrees. The bad news is, this… As much as I love have the JEEP in the garage on cold January mornings, I miss having the SKY here at the house for rare 70 degree days in […]

My New Pal

January 23, 2013

I cleaned like a crazy person today. Actually, I cleaned and danced like a crazy person today. I had some clutter to put away, three week’s worth of mail to sort through, and some decor to change out. I linked up my iPhone with the bluetooth wireless speaker that McDaddy got for Christmas, blasted some Third Day, Toby Mac, and Selah and I […]

Works For Me Wednesday – Christmas Card Party

December 13, 2012

I am blessed to have lots of great girlfriends. It is not uncommon for me to receive an e-mail that says something like, “Thinking of taking an overnight road trip in two weeks. I’ve got four seats open. Let me know if you wanna go.” Or one that says, “Going to breakfast on Friday. Who’s in?” […]

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 […]

Teacher Survival Kit

August 29, 2012

School started here in our district two weeks ago. We are almost back in the up early-homework as soon as you get home – early to bed routine. Though, for the record I HATE getting up early. My ideal school day would start at 9:00 AM, but unfortunately I didn’t get to vote. But alas, I […]

I’ve Never Been Good At Following Directions….

June 19, 2012

As a child, I was never good at following directions. Funny thing is, I’m still not. A week or so ago, I made a trip to the Wal Mart. It’s not often that I get to leisurely walk around the store and actually shop without kids begging to go look at toys, anxiously needing to pee […]

A Sweet Treat

May 22, 2012

One day while snooping around on Pinterest I found a neat teacher appreciation gift. I am proud to announce that with two days left in the school year, our three teacher appreciation gifts are ready to give. Here’s what I purchased today. The three cans are actually clear paint-type cans that I purchased at Michael’s. As […]

Going Bananas

May 2, 2012

If you were around here on Monday, (or if you follow FITP on the Facebook) you might remember me mentioning that Stevie and McDaddy won first place in the father/son cub-scout bake-off. This win marks their third trophy in three years, but their FIRST first place award. I’d say these two make a pretty good culinary pair, […]

My Latest Culinary Endeavor

April 24, 2012

I know at least one person who’s happy about my sudden interest in Pinterest. It ‘d be the one who benefits from all the recipes I’ve tried since becoming hooked. I’m always nervous when I ask McDaddy his opinion on my latest culinary endeavor. Last week, I tried a new pork chop recipe. I typically […]
