act now!

November 29, 2011

Part of the thing that always sucks the fun out of the holidays for everyone is the commercialism. I hear it all the time. I see it all the time. BLACK FRIDAY! CYBER MONDAY! LIMITED TIME OFFER! ACT NOW! You know, you don’t have to act now. You can beat the commercialism. I know you […]

repost: late night shower in the dark

November 29, 2011

Here’s a great one, dedicated to parents everywhere who have taken care of a sick kid. God bless you. _____________ late night shower in the dark   Although the title sounds erotic and intriguing it’s not. Actually, erotic and intriguing got me into this whole parenting thing in the first place. It’s no fun when […]

thanksgiving decorations

November 21, 2011

Okay, I love Thanksgiving. Actually, putting aside the craziness (if you can), I love all the holidays this time of year. Fall, and pumpkins, and apple cider leading into cinnamon and cookies and turkey and thanksgiving–not to mention the absolute present-love-fest that is Christmas. Don’t think “GREED!” Think: love. We all love our people, and […]

to get to the other side

November 15, 2011

Someone who lives in Tokyo messaged me, and she said “you have lifted my spirits as a fellow mama.” It made me so happy. But it made me think, “Oh, okay. So does that mean I have to keep writing? Because I was just about to quit.” No, I wasn’t really. Although it gets tough […]

dahoo dores

November 15, 2011

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Or is it just me? Schoolwork is getting a little more serious this time of year. Everyone’s sick with a cold, a little sniffle, or something. It’s raining here, maybe snowing where you are, or just yucky end-of-year weather. It seems like things are just a little busier. Actually, just as […]

shopping

November 11, 2011

Christmas is coming up. And it reminds me of shopping. And I haaaate shopping. I always hated clothes shopping because I never like how things look on me. But I guess I never liked shopping, for one thing, because that’s what a girl is “supposed” to love. And I love to turn a stereotype upside-down! […]

-cough, cough-, sigh.

November 10, 2011

I’ve been sick this week. That’s one difference between staying at home and working outside. If I worked outside, I’d pretend I was going to work, drop the kids off, and COME BACK HERE, kick off my heels, and go to bed when I feel like this. But no, I don’t have any day care […]

boo boo bandaid

November 6, 2011

Lilly calls Band Aids “booboo bandaids.” Like it’s all one word. Since for her, it really is. If there is anything, and I am talking anything wrong with you, a booboo bandaid is going to fix it. Sometimes you don’t even have a boo boo–mommy checked!–but you still have a pain so great that you […]
