Happy New Year!

January 2, 2014

We rang in the New Year here at the McResidence with McDaddy’s two brothers, his sister and their families. In all, there were 19 of us sleeping in this house last night. Twelve of those people were under the age of 11. We partied like rock-stars until well after midnight. Or something like that. This is my […]

Trix Or Treats

October 31, 2013

I did something today that I have never done in my adult life. I purchased a box of Trix cereal. I have serious issues with the Trix Rabbit because years ago, “Trix Rabbit” was my nickname. Before orthodontic intervention, my teeth were a hot mess. Because of that, a couple of boys in my Jr. High (now […]

Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History

What I didn’t count on was the friends I would make along the way. When I first made the decision to author From Inmates To Playdates […]

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 […]

What I Learned This Week

February 11, 2013

I had a glorious day. And by glorious, I mean there was no school today which means NO STUPID ALARM CLOCK FOR ME thankyouverymuch! And since there was no school, that also means I didn’t have to check any math homework. But, just in case you were wondering, Stevie did receive the requirements for yet another […]

Just Some More Of My Crazy

February 6, 2013

It is Tuesday evening and I am watching Dance Moms. It is that time of the month and I would knock a joker flat-out right now for a chocolate cake donut connection donut. Folks, 39-year-old hormones do not play. Especially when they’ve been on a  five-week biggest loser quest. Phew. It feels good to get that off of my […]

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 […]

The Shoes That Bind

January 21, 2013

Do you have shoes in your closet that you haven’t worn for years, but refuse to get rid of? If so, you will absolutely love this story. McDaddy participated in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at our church this weekend. The teams were formed by drawing names from a hat. McDaddy was on a team with our friend Shawn, and […]
