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 […]

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 […]

In a line, in the rain, waiting for nothing.

November 29, 2010

I’m sitting on the love-seat next to McDaddy. I am writing today’s blog post and he appears to be looking at a forum, probably something to do with automotives. Desperate Housewives is a bust because it is a rerun from a few weeks back which is an aggravation. I put the smack down on Housewives about ten minutes in and […]

You Capture – Togetherness

September 29, 2010

Nothing makes me happier than being with my fellas, so, I was pretty excited when I heard that this week’s challenge would be togetherness. McDaddy and I are pretty fortunate that our boys get along very well (most days) and when Stevie is at school, Alex is like a lost ball in a field of […]

Not Me And Not My Quirks.

June 20, 2010

Are you feeling guilty because you forgot your child’s dentist appointment? Have you ever been overcome with embarrassment because your child made a grand announcement in a public restroom that “you stink when you use the potty?” If so, then you are in the perfect place for Not Me! Monday. A blog carnival that was “created […]

Thursday Thirteen – Thirteen Things [and folks] I’m Thankful For!

November 26, 2009

What better day to tell you thirteen things I’m thankful for than today on this Thanksgiving holiday. I love Thanksgiving. I have fond memories of waking up very early on Thanksgiving morning to the smell of turkey and pumpkin pie baking in the oven. And, no Thanksgiving is complete without the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  So, […]

Not A Creature Was Stirring Except For The Mouse

July 15, 2009

Before we left for our two-week vacation in New Hampshire, I thought it would be a good idea to wash my kitchen cabinets and counter tops off. I was armed with Clorox Kitchen cleaner, a magic eraser, and motivation. The latter always makes a job like that more thrilling. As I was wiping, swiping and […]

McDaddy and My Daddy

June 21, 2009

Today is Father’s Day. Fathers everywhere will be honored and celebrated. When I married McDaddy, I married him for the kind, gentle, loving person that I knew he was. What I didn’t know at that time is that he would be the best daddy our boys could want. He is so patient and loving. I am so […]

Thursday Thirteen – The Letter S

June 18, 2009

Last night I crossed another thing off of my “things I want to do sometime” list. It was quite an evening and one I will never forget. Unfortunately, today is Thursday and I know that my loyal blog fans are looking forward to reading all about the letter “S.” So, I’ll save that post for […]

Thursday Thirteen – The Letter N

May 14, 2009

It’s Thursday and I’d be lying if I said this post is getting my full attention. The truth is I’m watching American Idol – The Results, and I’m hoping like heck my boys, Danny and Kris make it to the finals. It will be a long shot given The Screecher and his fine following, but […]
