A Bright Idea

I confess that I don't often come up with bright ideas, but when I do...I must admit I get very happy and dance for joy.  I think I need to write them down so I can keep track of how many have.  Maybe two a year. 

I confess...
That because of this great idea I was able to kick back this morning.  It felt good.  Yes, kick back...on a school morning.  It felt good.  I could have danced.  It wouldn't have been pretty, but I sure could have done it.

I confess..
I can keep better track of the days of the week when school is in session and when fall TV is on.  For instance, yesterday was Thursday because it was Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.  And today is Friday because it is the weekend and tomorrow is sleep in day!  Woot!  And who doesn't love that???

I confess...
I have been spending a lot of time on Pintrest.  It's my new guilty pleasure.  I can see it quickly becoming a time hog. 

What do you have to confess of?  Come on and link up with Mamarazzi!

Proud Mommy Pictures

Cool fingernail design that Kristin painted by herself.  She saw it online and copied it. She used fine tipped brushes and a lot of time. Anytime that these two get along is a proud moment Finding this in my camera roll on my phone.  It's just the beginning of yet another family photographer.

These are just few gems I came up with this week for Proud Mommy Moments with Emmy and KMama.  Have you got a moment of glory or shame to share?  Link up today.

DWTS--Story Time

It's story time.  This week each of the celebrities will tell of time in their lives that was of great significance to them and put it to music and dance it out.  Sounds simple right?  It's always an emotional night.

 Rob and Cheryl 1-800-868-3402
Tonight Rob is honoring his father who died in 2003 of esophageal cancer.  I saw a different side of Rob as he spoke of his father.  If he could be more like this guy, I might grow to like him.  Their dance is the Foxtrot to the tune of "Fly Me To The Moon"  He is improving, and it was indeed a sweet tribute, but he just doesn't have IT. 

Len told him that he put the "dash" into Kardashian. He said his  footwork was good , his  holds were good and that he hoped his dad  was looking down, and saying you did good cause he did good! (better...improved)  Bruno said that Rob the man is getting the upper hand and that the dancing kind of reminded him of Guys and Dolls.
Carrie Ann said she likes watching him because…

Happiness Is....

You all know who Mamarazzi is right?  I usually link up with her to confess of things weighing heavy on my mind.  But that is not all she does.  She also has the "Happy List" where you can chat it up about what it is that is making you happy.  It could be anything from a card in the mail to just a really good day.  Here are some of things that make me happy.

What is making me happy?  I think I already said this, but it bears repeating...not having 100+ temps.  Yeah yeah sure it is a dry heat, but it is a suffocating heat.  You feel as though you are baking from the ground up.  And having lived back East for six years and suffered humidity I still prefer the "dry heat."  That humidity is awful.  So yes, I am very happy that I don't feel like I am baking at 10 in the morning.

It makes me smile when I buy a silly something for my kids.  I enjoy shopping for their birthdays and knowing when I have scored!  Maybe that is wrong on my part, but I can't help it.  …

Drop Off

I want to gripe talk a little about "drop off" at school.  Particularly at the elementary level.  I don't like to brag, but I like to think of myself as a semi-professional at this drop off thing.  Let's look at the the words ... drop me this implies dropping off.  All too often what I am seeing is parents who drop their child off and watch and wait and wait as their child walks and makes their way all the way inside the school.  Okay, I get it.  This is your child.  She/he is your baby.  Blah blah blah!  If you really want to treasure and cherish each moment, park the car and walk with the child.  I have another child who goes to another school two miles away and on three days a week a husband who needs to get to work.  I do not have time to watch you make sure Baby Boo gets inside okay.  If that is priority one for you, then park it and walk! 

I know I sound heartless, but I have been at this for 9 years now.  And even watching my own baby bound out of the…
