A Stressful Start

Oh, what a stressful way to start the day. I woke up this morning to discover that my… ahem… lovely former site hosts had completely ignored the fact that I canceled months ago and went ahead and charged me for another year. The icing on the cake? It was...

Winter Wonderland?

We had some pretty wild thunderstorms last night. I was very impressed that Xander and Ross both slept straight through some of the cracks that I heard. Unfortunately, I was woken by Pandora. I guess we know where the phrase “scaredy cat” comes from. I...

Our Easter

We did something a little different this year and had Easter at my mom’s house instead of Ross’ dad’s house. I got up way too early yesterday and was sleepy, so it was nice staying closer to home and keeping things on a smaller scale. Ross and I...

Daylight Savings

No, this is not yet another reminder for you that it is Daylight Savings Time… though if you missed it, move the clocks up an hour and lament your lost hour of the day. This is more of a short-ish ramble on how it affected me this morning. I woke up to a very...

Happy Birthday, Ross!

I just had to send out a very special wish of a happy birthday to my dear husband. I have been very lucky that he found his way into my life and I hope we get another 41 years and then some together! I love you, Ross. Happy birthday! ...

Taking a Sick Day

As the title says, I am going to be taking a sick day today. The combination of bipolar Wisconsin weather, my husband’s 12-hour shifts, and my son waking at two every morning finally did me in. I’m not deathly ill or anything, but enough so that even...

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today was my mom’s… ummm… 39th birthday. I’m still trying to figure out how it is that I am getting closer to her age again. This same strange phenomenon occurred in my 20s… only then she was 29 for several years. You’d think she...

Away For the Day

Today my cousin Valerie is getting married! We will be making the trek to the Northwoods to attend what is sure to be a great event! This means that I will be away for the rest of today and into tomorrow. I am not exactly certain when I will return home, but it is...

Post-Holiday Wrap-Up

With the all of  the preparations and parties of the holiday season and my husband on vacation until the new year, my attention to my duties as blogger have been a bit slap-dash for the past several weeks. I’ve been missing a lot of my daily and meme...

First Snow

We finally had our first real snow here yesterday. Ross and I took Xander outside to play with the snow. This was really the first year he was truly old enough to appreciate the fun of it. He was just two months old for his first snow and had only been walking a short...

Traumatized by Santa

We took our son to see Santa last night. It left me wondering why we all torture our young kids with this childhood right of passage. What is it about a child crying on Santa’s lap that makes us both sympathetic and amused? Then I remembered that although I have...
