Random Friday

I am going to the grocery store today.  It's my least favorite chore. Actually it is in a dead heat with laundry.
Yesterday while I made lunch, Ryan told me he was going to write. I was all for it. I thought he would draw pictures and make scribbles. He wrote his name first, then his sisters. I helped him with some of the letters. I didn't know he had come so far.
Before my next thought, I apologize to teachers. I think you are awesome. That being said, homework totally sucks, and projects are sheer torture.

Exhibit A: A book report made into a filmstrip.   Well thank heaven for Emmy and her Time for Tots! Without her, it would have been an all nighter.
It's true, the weather out here has been grand. Take a few minutes to hate us. I will wait.
I do not take a nap in the morning on the couch. And it is not because I go to bed past midnight most nights.
My mom's aunt sent her this: Women are Angels. And when someone breaks our wings.... We simply continue to fly ......... On a broomstick... …

It's the Writer's Workshop with Mama Kat.  I chose prompt #2.

2.) Brea from Tomika’s Treasure Trove wants your advice: Quick question. I am new to the blogging world, having clocked up less than 2 weeks worth of posts, and I have just had an ‘Anonymous’ commenter slam me for blogging about my daughter, mentioning her by name, posting photos and up-to-date stories about her. I have not mentioned anywhere in my blog where we live, Country OR State, or what school she goes to. I have also seen, on several other blogs, that other parents do the same thing as me. Some even mention where they live. I was wondering, as a fellow blogger who posts about your family, what are your thoughts on the subject?

This is a great topic for discussion.  When I first started blogging, I was reluctant to post pictures online.  But then I realized I was being...well...paranoid.  I don't name my city, or even county.  I do reside in CA, but let's face it...CA is very big.    I also don't…

You Like Me! You Really Like Me!

I have been a very ungrateful bloggy friend.  I am ungrateful because I was awarded twice last week and I haven't done anything with them.  Last week was one of my crazier weeks filled with multiple doctor appointments, sick kids, yadda yadda yadda.  So now I will begin....*ahem*

The first award comes from Joy at The Practical Mom Guide. I enjoy her site very much. Go and visit her.    The award is the Happy 101 Award!

To accept the "Happy 101 Award" I need to:
1. Acknowledge the person who gave it to me
2. List ten items that make me happy, and
3. Award it to other bloggers.

10 Things That Make Me Happy:  In no particular order
1.Chocolate. 2.The beach 3. When my son grabs my cheeks and smushes my face. 4.When my eldest cracks a joke 5.When my little middle draws me a picture 6.When my hubby tells me that I do a good job 7. Shoes (There is no such thing as too many shoes.) 8.Floating in a pool, on my back, eyes closed.  9.warm homemade rolls with butter (Mmmmmm!) 10. Getting los…

Remembering Me.

When I was 16, I had it all figured out.  Of course I did.  Don't all 16-25 year old people have it all figured out.   It's that time in your life when you know more than your parents could ever dream or hope to know.  Yes, I had it planned out.  I was going to have a it be something good.  Something that makes me lots of money.  I will probably get married and IF I do have children, well then my husband will be the one to stay home with the kids.  I am not going to do all the homemaker junk!  I am woman hear me roar! 

I met my husband when I was 21.   We were married three weeks after I turned 23.  Then just 4 years later something happened that changed who I was forever.  When they first handed her to me, I thought she looked kind of funny.  Nobody ever told me that they don't come out looking like a cherub.  They actually are kind blotchy and wrinkly.  No matter, once I held her in my arms my life was forever changed.  For starters, I had no idea wh…
