I had an early brunch with a dear, dear friend of mine this morning. As we sat in her sweet little breakfast nook with tea, boiled eggs, and stollen, we chatted about how the year was going and she asked me what I was doing to nurture myself. Honestly y'all, I babbled out an answer … Continue reading Nurturing Oneself
RA/fibro flare up today. This is how bad it is: my husband is going to the music store to buy a bugle mouthpiece. Nick. In a music store. Buying a mouthpiece. Just picture it. If I weren't hurting so much I'd be laughing my butt off.
One crazy night! Started off at Greg's school for dinner from a taco truck and then headed over to Ree's school for Parent Marcher Night and then headed back to Greg's school to finish out Meet the Teacher with him and Nick. At one point I was talking to a teacher and completely forgot the … Continue reading One Crazy Night!
This afternoon I am tearing up because of this: David got a call from one of his former freshmen in band today. The kid didn't have anyone to come to Parent Marcher night for him and he called and asked David to be his person. Of course he said yes.
We're a little loopy after March-a-thon, so we're singing new verses of "What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor," and Ree is all "Your PTA ladies are going to be soooooo confused because it isn't even the "Day of the Irish!" WHAT?! 'Umm, "4 Leaf Clover Day?" "Pot of Gold Day?" "Leprechaun Day?" "GREEN … Continue reading Fun Day!

I have a little teapot that I make chai tea in, filling it half full of hothot … Continue reading Little rituals

I also spent a day cleaning the garage and doing this: (organizing the garage & making a pegboard full of tools) And (Organizing the food related magazines & putting them into labeled holders) I also spent two days … Continue reading Back to normal, sort of
I promised more organizing for the next day's post and many days have gone by and I can't remember any more what I organized, so I'm looking through my pictures to help me remember: Honestly, I've gotten nothing else done since then, except a tiny bit in my makeup & hair boxes. Steph and I … Continue reading More organizing
Last Wednesday we didn't have a lot going on, which was good, as I was still recovering from Icky Tummy. Greg had a short playdate with his friend Kya. We were late, then they needed to leave early, but they had fun in the backyard! Lots of climbing on the jungle gym the way it … Continue reading All I do is rush around and read
I was thinking the other day about resolutions and what mine should be this year. I think mine from last year are still on the fridge, actually, but rather than look at the past, let’s look to the future, shall we? This year I plan on losing 50 pounds. Yes, fifty. 2011 was the … Continue reading Happy New Year!
