The Long Lonely Ride
Published on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 by You can call me Queen of the Tide, if you like. Because that is what I have been for the last few weeks. I knew it was coming to this… I just didn’t know when. For this month, much to my dismay, my first minivan died and I now have to take the light rail. In the meantime, my good friend’s car AND her son’s car both died during the same period of time. It wasn...
Spring Cleaning
Published on Monday, May 26, 2014 by Sometimes you just have to put everything aside and take care of business.  Like the internet and blog posts and everything else you enjoy.  And that is what I have been doing… taking care of business.  The benefits far outweigh what I have pushed myself through, but boy oh boy what a few weeks I have had. Today my “third son” arrived along with his girlfr...
Iphone Randomness
Published on Monday, April 14, 2014 by Much to the dismay of my children, I take random pictures of EVERYTHING with my phone.  “Mom… do you REALLY have to take a picture of that?”  I thought it would be fun to flip through my phone’s album and post a few pictures of things that momentarily caught my eye. 1.  This Little Tykes blue car is still in my back yard and is still used by my children. ...
If Only The Dead Could Whisper
Published on Thursday, March 20, 2014 by My daughter and I recently attended a graveside funeral.  After the service, she and I drove around the cemetery to look at the old and beautiful grave stones. “Look Mom!  That one isn’t in English!” She and I had come across a section that contained several Chinese headstones.  We pulled over in order to see them close-up. These stones were breathtaking...
40 Bags, 40 Days
Published on Sunday, March 16, 2014 by Three kids.  No time.  Small House.  It all leads to C-L-U-T-T-E-R.  I just can’t keep up.  But I can’t stand it either.  This is why I decided to join the “40 Bags in 40 Days” challenge that has been floating around the internet. I don’t even know who started this Lenten Monstrosity.  But just as I mumble my curses to writing challenge hosts (I love...
I’m Back!
Published on Sunday, January 26, 2014 by Katherine, Katherine, where have you been?  I’ll tell you where… I’ve been in NO COMPUTER LAND!  MY LAPTOP DIED! Hear me whine, “I haven’t been able to read blogs!  I haven’t been able to comment!  Everyone thinks I don’t care about their blogs anymore!”  OK… whining over.  Being a hardware tech, you would think I could have gotten something...
I’m a Bundle of Nerves
Published on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by *I am interrupting my normally silly, happy and unpredictable blog to spill my guts.  Better out than in, I pray. I’m a bundle of nerves, literally. It seems the minute I turned the calendar to November 1 my stomach tied in to a knot and refuses to be untied.  And trust me everyone, I have tried vodka! Of course it begins with a huge decrease in sunshine, the...
The Slowly Aging Tightrope of Motherhood
Published on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 by I will never forget the feeling.  A tiny hand nestled in my own.  Small, sweaty and so familiar.  I can’t remember the age you are no longer allowed to hold your child’s hand.  Certainly by two or three you hear firm demands that there will be no hand holding as you both cross the street.  Being older and much bigger, this merely makes you smile as you reac...
What’s Up, Buttercup?
Published on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 by Imagine we are sitting together for lunch… perhaps at Chipotle.  We haven’t seen each other in a week or so.  We begin to talk about what has been happening in our lives.  What are the things I would tell you?   Yesterday my son called to say there was a big water leak in the bunkroom of the beach house.  As he went to turn off the light, he got sh...
Does a Bear… or is it When a Tree?
Published on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 by If a blogger misses her regular postings, can you hear her poop in the woods when she falls down?  I don’t know, something like that. Rather than give you a clever story or embarrassing moment, I’m just going to tell you where I’ve been!  Jail?  Nope.  Hospital?  Nah.  Life has been changing, and my blog temporarily became the poor stepchild. My oldest...
Can a Blog Roll Hurt Your Google Rank?
Published on Saturday, December 29, 2012 by It’s something I’ve wondered for quite some time.  After all, Google wants “some” external links but not a “lot” of external links.  So if you have a long blogroll, would it not hurt your Google rankings? How many times have I not put something on one of my sites because I was afraid of what Google might do.  Too many.  After all, Google rules the i...
Is Christmas Over Yet?
Published on Sunday, December 23, 2012 by Wait a minute.  I have a BLOG?! One would think it was Christmas or something.  I can hardly remember to eat much less write a blog post these days.  AND THE NEW WORDPRESS UPDATE BROKE MY THEME.  Is Christmas over yet?   [caption id="attachment_8276" align="alignnone" width="500"] Standing for 45 minutes in line at Burlington Coat Factory for the PERFECT...
