How Quickly Life can Change

You may have noticed that 2014 hasn’t gotten off to the start I was anticipating. Still injured, and our house has been sick for what seems like an eternity. It’s been a slow start to the year and admittedly, it feels like we’ve been in 2014 for a lot longer than we have. I’ve feltContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Day Dates, Tummy Issues and (another) Blizzard

Happy St. Patty’s day! No green beer for this Mama this year. I woke up with a flaming tummy today. Mis-er-a-ble. I think it has something to do with dinner out last night. My IL’s had gift cards to the Keg they needed to use so we all went there. Being that it’s a steakContinue Reading

Mayhem…Wednesday? Taking an unplanned internet hiatus

I’m back!! We had a minor snafu with our internet last week. We had made the decision to get rid of cable to focus more on quality time and less time on mindless couch-denting. We had also decided to switch our land line (yes…we still have one of those) to network into our cell networkContinue Reading

Never a dull moment when you’re a Boy Mom

Last week, I managed 2Continue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Birthday and Olympic Withdrawal

Another week has come and gone. Last week was a short week because we had a holiday on Monday. Add that to my day off on Wednesday and a 3-day work-week isn’t too shabby. The downside is that 5 days worth of work still needs to be done. I was definitely ready for the weekend.Continue Reading

Happy Birthday Fit Boy!

For those keeping score, I did indeed just write a birthday post for my littlest kidlet’s 2nd birthday. Two days later, we are celebrating the oldest. Really want me to blow your mind? My boys were born on the exact same Sunday, 2 years apart. Boom… Dear Fit Boy, Today is possibly your most excitingContinue Reading
