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 […]

Math Blaster – A Review

February 10, 2013

Recently, I received an e-mail asking if my boys (and I) would possibly want to check out the new features on the Math Blaster site. They were eager to get started because they really enjoyed the site the last time they were provided with a membership. Math Blaster is a fun arcade-style video game that incorporates math into its […]

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 […]

Sit A Spell

February 5, 2013

It’s that time again, folks, and I have a doozie for you this week. You remember that I’m doing this Biggest Loser thing, right? We are now in week five (of eight) and Tracy, our Biggest Loser Boss decided to kick things up a notch. Everyday (or almost every day) she assigns a virtual challenge, which we […]

We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby!

June 26, 2012

McDaddy and I graduated from the same high school in 1992. In a lot of ways, it seems like a lifetime ago. Despite the fact that we grew up just fifteen miles apart (and the fact that he lived less than a mile from my grandma), had it not been for a school closing and subsequent consolidation, […]

Who I Am

July 6, 2011

I am the girl who loves being involved. I am the girl who could get rich if talking was in high demand. I am the girl who loves summer. Mostly because it means I can sleep late. I am the girl who loves to laugh. And make people laugh. I am the girl in the front car of the […]

Speaking My Language

March 16, 2011

When I was deciding on a college major, I went through the course handbook like a crazy person on a search for the major that required the least amount of math. Psychology seemed to fit nicely into my self-imposed math requirement and it sounded like a lot of fun. When I finally settled on psychology as a […]

A girl should always have a back-up plan

January 25, 2011

If you’re a regular around here at FITP, Inc. I’ll go ahead and apologize for what you are about to read. You all know the story of the cute striped rocking chair. You may recall that I’ve whined about it two or three times over the past three months. What you don’t know is that finding that […]

Another Lesson Learned The Hard Way

November 16, 2010

While I will do my very best to keep this brief, it is possible that it could turn into another of my long windy tails. It all started with a cute little rocker chair that I found in a catalog at a furniture shop. Then, I found a custom fabric that I absolutely fell in love with […]

Hairs A Math Lesson

September 3, 2010

I fell off the wagon today. The curling iron wagon. A couple of months ago, I broke off a long, sometimes shaky relationship with my 3/4 inch barrel ConAir curling iron. My hair never seemed to hold the style anyway, and I felt like the curling iron only offered me the benefit of a decent hair style for about an […]
