Kids Choir Chaos

Two weeks ago at church…..or maybe it was last week. I don’t know. It was a Sunday. via GIPHY My six year old participated in a small choir group at church. We’re new to this church so there was a lot I didn’t know, like where he was supposed to meet the other kids before their performance. The instructions on […]

Stealing Spiderman

Last week my husband celebrated the second anniversary of his 21st birthday. Unlike his first celebration of this glorious occasion, this one wasn’t as exciting….depending on one’s definition of exciting. My husband didn’t want much for his birthday which is a good thing because…well..he didn’t get much. I mean I love him and stuff but he went and had his birthday […]

Scouts, Soccer, & Human Sacrifice

With the kids back to school, the craziness at our house is in full gear. The six year old is in an after school program at his elementary school and attends Cub Scouts with my husband who is the den leader for that age group. I think. I’m not sure if he’s called “Den Leader” or not. But he’s the […]

Was I too snarky?

I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. No particular reason. Just because I can. Dear Ellen, I was having a cranky, horrible, no-good, awful, bad day. The six year old threw a fit because I made him wear gray socks to school. No clue why this was so traumatizing to him but maybe some day he’ll be able to explain it […]

Moving Misadventures

Earlier this month, we moved from Maryland to back to our house in Georgia. As far as the drive with three small kids and two cranky cats went, I’d say it was pretty smooth. The only real glitch in our move was that the moving company decided after four months of promising to us that our furniture would be delivered […]

Memorial Day Memories – Part 2

Two weeks ago I wrote part one of  Memorial Day Memories. I ended it abruptly due to a suspicious smell. And now that the fire department has left, the smoke has cleared up and I’ve finished Feng Shuing the pantry, alphabetizing the spices, and cleaning the grout in the shower, I now have the time to finish writing this series. And […]

Memorial Day Memories

About two months ago I lost my website. Two years of writing was completely gone. The whole website had to be rebuilt. On top of that, I was also in the process of trying to get our house ready to sell and keep three small kids from trying to kill each other. And of course, when I have zero time […]
