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 […]

You Capture – Light

December 15, 2011

Earlier this week, we spent a few days with McDaddy’s parents and his sister’s family at a ski resort. It’s our annual ski extravaganza. Except, I don’t ski. Because I am a klutz. And because I can barely walk without tripping over my own feet, so I have no desire to clamp some three-feet long, […]

Off To The Races

June 27, 2011

Another summer weekend has come and gone and I am so sad because that means that June is almost a memory. Summer is racing by. The weekend temperature here in West Virginia wouldn’t have been any better if I could have handpicked a temperature because it was approximately 80 degrees (my IDEAL temperature) with very little humidity. I’ll […]

I’m a little teapot, short and stout

March 28, 2011

here is my handle, here is my spout. I remember singing that song in my nursery school class. Or maybe it was Kindergarten. At any rate, I couldn’t help but think of that song when I saw this cute little teapot, also known as the neti pot. I’ve responded to several e-mail inquiries regarding the neti pot. And before […]

A Hot Mess

January 19, 2011

Just in case you were wondering, I still have a hacking cough. I haven’t coughed up a lung, but I still might. As of this writing, my lungs are still intact as far as I can tell, but I’ll keep you posted on that because the way I’m hacking, things could change in a hot minute. […]

A Whole Lot Of Nothing

September 9, 2010

It’s one of those mornings where I would welcome genuine adult conversation. McDaddy left on a business trip to Canton, Ohio before I ever even rolled over, Stevie is at school, and Alex is busy playing with McDaddy’s vintage Hot Wheels service center. I am in my big, blue, bloggy chair watching Dr. Phil. Yes, I said, […]

What I Learned This Week – Baseball Edition

August 2, 2010

Last weekend while we were in Florida, Stevie and I accompanied two brothers-in-law to a Major League Baseball game. As far as baseball goes, it was a biggie. Or so I was told. Because me? I know nothing of baseball unless you count the fact that I’ve thought Derek Jeter was a hottie ever since […]

365 Days

August 1, 2010

I am sitting in my big, blue, bloggy chair watching Big Brother. It has been a long day spent mostly on the road from South Carolina to our home in West Virginia. I spent the day thinking about what I was doing one year ago today. There was the little matter of deployment and on […]
