Another Day Off

January 21, 2014

Let me start by promising I won’t mention our water situation today. You’re welcome! Instead, I thought we might discuss the SNOW situation. Y’all. My boys have been to school for a total of three days since December 19th, and one of those days was a two-hour delay. (Not that I’m complaining, because I have […]

My Mudroom Is Finished!

January 6, 2014

There is always a project in progress up in here. For instance, we are in the planning stages of a new back deck. Not because we want a larger one, or a better one, rather, because the boards are rotting and I am fearful that one of us will end up in the back yard […]

Designing My Mudroom

October 20, 2013

For more than a year, McDaddy and I have been making plans to turn our fifth bedroom into a mudroom. The room is off of the garage, but when we moved into our home, there was no door connecting the room to the garage because apparently the people who owned the house before us were crazy […]

Decorating For Fall

October 9, 2013

It’s hard to welcome Fall with open arms when it’s 90-some degrees every other day. I am waiting patiently to cook up a crock-pot of chili or a big ol bucket of vegetable soup on a cold, crisp day. Although I’ve been burning Pumpkin Cupcake and Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candles for more than a month, it has taken me a […]

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 […]

You Capture – The Letter L

February 23, 2011

It’s another one of those weeks where I’m living by a list, which translates into I’M SLAMMED THIS WEEK. The PTA is kicking off a cookie-dough fundraiser today. The book-fair is this week. There are popcorn popping duties on Thursday. The laundry overfloweth. I am hoping to travel with McDaddy next week on business, which requires […]

Beauty and The Beast

January 21, 2011

The weather guy, in his infinate wisdom has predicted that we will get between two and six inches of snow by Friday morning. Two. And six. That’s quite a difference, but if I’m being honest, the two might as well be six when it comes to my driving in it, because I am a chicken. […]

Stuff and Things

December 10, 2010

It’s been a hectic week around here at the McResidence but I won’t go into all that because I am not one to whine or complain. Ahem! Some days the blog fodder rolls right off of my fingertips and other days, I sit here on the big, blue, bloggy couch watching some sort of reality […]

A Little Sit-uation

November 2, 2010

If you’re a regular visitor ’round these parts, you know that I spent about four weeks of my life shopping for living room furniture. I shopped frantically and often. I went a little crazier crazy. We purchased our previous furniture immediately after moving into our home eight years ago. When I first saw it on the […]

I Hate To Wait

September 26, 2010

When we bought our house seven years ago, we also purchased living room furniture. The couch and loveseat was absolutely perfect for our country-themed great-room. It was big and puffy and blue and came complete with 214 pillows. Before sitting on the furniture, it is necessary to move the pillows or else there isn’t a […]
