So my husband has always wanted to start his own business. When we first started dating we talked about opening a store together.. a party store! We were going to name it Celebrations and it was going to be the best damn party store in the world! Well...

Don't get your panties in a twist, I'm not asking about *that* first! Who was your first favorite band/singer? What was your first favorite song? Do you remember? I listened to a lot of music with my mom in the late 80s/early 90s. I liked my mom's music a lot when I was little, and a lot of it I still really love (take Madonna, for example. Loved her music back then, but not her new stuff). It…Continue

So, Matt is in 1st grade and already he's getting teased by a few girls for believing in Santa Clause. Already? What happens in theses houses that the magic has been extinguished so soon? These aren't kids whose households just don't celebrate in that way. These are kids that say their moms…Continue

I'm in a much better mood today than I was yesterday. Eric got a chance to Facebook me before class and said that he *did* in fact try to wake me to get me to come to bed. I'm not sure if I believe him, but at least he was feeling bad about it. When he got home we relaxed…Continue

We've all heard the tragic stories: mom or dad forgets that a sleeping baby is in the back seat and they trudge off to work with baby in the car. They come back for lunch, or at the end of the day, and are faced with a dead child. It's heartbreaking, but it happens…Continue

Wooo! Lucas and I are home after seven days in the Sunshine State. We had such a great time, and seeing my mom again was like surfacing for air. It had been too long. It will always be too long. …Continue

On Friday Luke and Matt were eating apples. Matt said "Ow, my teeth hurt!"
Uh-oh, I thought, he's finally going to lose a tooth! As it turns out, BOTH bottom front teeth are loose and as I looked into his mouth I saw *gasp* that his big teeth are already growing in…

On Sunday a friend of mine from work showed me a house on her phone. It was $79,000 for three (small) bedrooms, a full basement, a decent sized yard (with swingset), storage shed, and central A/C. It got me thinking.
Eric and I have been together for 8 years. We've rented the entire time. Now, how are we supposed to…

I don't really have much to say today, and I don't have a lot of time to do it. Matt will be home from school any minute. I totally forget he has half days this week, so it's a good thing it's raining and I didn't decided to go out for a walk or anything! I was headed over to the laundry when the high school bus stopped, and if I hadn't seen…Continue

Wait.. not *that* kind of a cougar!
My son's school's mascot is a Cougar, and today was Cougar Day, basically a field day for the kids. Lucas acted up at every opportunity: running onto the field during crab soccer, stealing hula hoops from the girls, throwing tantrums when I picked him…

There he is, my little graduate! The kids all sang songs and Matt, of course, only participated in about half of it. He told me he was tired of them…Continue

Waaaaay back in the day when I was pregnant with Matt, my sister in law, Nicole (I know, weird, right?) gifted me with a Polaroid digital camera at my baby shower (a500 if you're technical and that means anything to you). I thought it was the coolest freakin' thing in the world! I'd never had a digital camera before. Yes, in 2006 I was still going to get film developed and praying…Continue
