SAHM’s never stay at home

I had that day where I only had one appointment on the calendar, but managed to have to be away from home all day long. Attended PTA Council meeting, signed up for Fit City Tyler, tried (without success) to join my husband's gym, got children necessary 2nd semester supplies, and finished my critique of a … Continue reading SAHM’s never stay at home

Four Things Make A Post

1. Wondering when Dry Shampoo became Not A Thing Anymore. It used to be everywhere when I didn't want it and now that I do, I can't find it. 2. Greg hates school. Nothing in particular, just going. How do I fix that?!?!?! 3. David called me because I was 7 minutes later coming home … Continue reading Four Things Make A Post

Living in the backyard

This morning Greg and I were snuggling on the couch and he tells me "I'm going to go live in the backyard soon." Which was totally unrelated to our conversation. I was puzzled, too, because it is winter and not really the best time of year to be in the elements. I asked him how … Continue reading Living in the backyard

Scouts trip to see the Lady Apaches

Last night while I was at work, Nick took the Tiger Cubs of Okee Tuklo Pack 369 to a Lady Apaches Basketball game at Tyler Junior College. The gym there is very nice and they let scouts in to the game for free. TJC Lady Apaches Basketball Go Apaches! Tiger Cubs watching the game (Greg … Continue reading Scouts trip to see the Lady Apaches

Everything is funny this morning

1. The sign says 5 days until visit the Popes. David says "We're going to see the Pope? More than one?" Me: "Yes, we're becoming Catholic. It's a big deal." (No, we aren't really. Yes, people have asked. No, just no.) 2. Picasa recognizes me in pictures regardless of what's on my head. (I apparently … Continue reading Everything is funny this morning

Is it International Night or Variety Show?! IT’S BOTH!

At Nick's church there is definitely a "more is better" philosophy going on when it comes to events. If a chili supper for the whole church is fun, adding a sing-a-long is better. If a potluck isn't quite enough, a game night makes it even better. So therefore if there's an International Dinner, a Variety Show … Continue reading Is it International Night or Variety Show?! IT’S BOTH!

The Heater Hates Me

So, no heat for us today. Or rather, we have replaced a part that will temporarily allow us a bit of heat, but at much lower temps than we are used to...because another part is broken, which made the "engine" (for lack of better word) of the heater overheat...and that could break any time now. … Continue reading The Heater Hates Me

Science ruins magic

Actual kid conversation at breakfast: B: "Sometimes being smart bums me out." Me: "For example?" B: "Rainbows. They're supposed to be all magic and cool, but I know they're really refracted light." D: "Yeah, science ruins magic." Me: "But sometimes science lets you see so far down into things that you find more magic!" Them: … Continue reading Science ruins magic

A dog’s life is never dull

Rose is addicted to Greg's green Monster's Inc. socks. Just like a kid with a thousand toys, she carries ordinary things around and tries to play with them.

David funny

I couldn't find my other shoe this morning (of any pair -- Rose keeps running off with them) and it's too cold for bare feet. David shouts to me from the other room "You only need one shoe to put the pedal to the metal, Mom!"
