Inject Some Creative Vision Into Your Humble Abode

As we come to the end of another year, it’s only natural that we begin to look at the changes we can make to ourselves and the environment around us ready for the new year. As our nearest and dearest start to focus on losing weight, heading back to the gym or saving...

A Fun Family Day

Our Saturday was one of my favorite days in some time. It was so nice to spend a day just being a family. Karate Our day started off with a mock tournament at Xander's karate school. The school had heard many comments from parents like ourselves. Many of us were...

Summer Days

I really need to get better about watching the weather forecasts. I had no idea it was going to be such an amazing couple of days outside! Luckily, we had a chance to take advantage of them. The weather has been sunny without the typical mugginess of this time of...

Dancing in the Rain

I remember playing in the rain all the time when I was a kid. I loved when we would get that perfect combination of hot weather, pouring rain, and no thunder. I could spend an hour just running around in circles or splashing in the puddles as they formed. There was a...

Oldies & Car Games

I saw today's Wordpress blog prompt, lollipop, and immediately began singing in my head. Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly, lolly...  That song makes me think of my dad and summer nights driving around town with the oldies channel blasting on the speakers. We used to play...

I’ve Been a Grumpy Gal

I have been so grumpy for the past several days and with no reason to be. It seemed like everything was irritating me. My son got up relatively quickly the last couple days instead of the usual last-minute, but I was still annoyed that I had to try a couple times...

Is That What You’re Wearing?

"Is that what you're wearing?" is what my six-year-old son asked me as we were getting ready to head out for his summer program today. Really?! Okay, so I admit that I was wearing an outfit that looked a lot like what I typically sleep in, but still. My husband has...

Back to Reality

I can't believe my husband's vacation is nearly over. It's been a mostly fun two weeks. On Monday, he'll be back to work and our son will be back to his summer program. An extended vacation like this usually drives me completely crazy because of the constant mess and...

One of Those Days

It has definitely been one of those days. I went to bed late last night and woke up far too early this morning. I couldn't get back to sleep because my husband had a serious case of gas. It's not really his fault (except that he eats complete crap) but it wasn't any...

What a Trip!

Ahhh... summer... time for the yearly road trip! Once again, Ross did most of the planning. He really enjoys the thrill of planning out these trips. He plots out maps and creates detailed itineraries... basically the polar opposite of my road trip personality. It's...

Catching Up on Life

It feels like it has been so long since I wrote a journal-ly post about my "real life." The last several months have been relatively drama-free. There was some ruckus around Christmastime, but that is pretty much a given these days. Every year is the same story... Mom...
