Dear Readers: I have neglected you. Maybe you don’t know that I have, but I FEEL like I have. It seems I’ve been rather pre-occupied with a new gig I have. Yes, I’m a working girl now. I alluded to it in a post the other day. Maybe you saw it. So far it’s included […]

Pep Pep PEPPY!!

I’m a morning person. I’d much rather be up at 6am than stay up past 9:30. I know. I’m an old lady. I’m good with that! Being room mom (yay me) for Henry’s class, I was invited to the PEP RALLY (use jazz hands, please) to kick off their big fundraiser, the Boosterthon. If y’all […]

Monday night was Curriculum Night at Henry’s school. I was nervous about it this year because I am *drum roll* a ROOM MOM. Don’t ask me what made me sign up to do it other than I’ve obviously lost my mind or I thought for some reason I’d be good at it. I don’t know. […]

The five minute timer is set… uncut and unedited writing to commence. Friday we handed over the keys. Jason and I drove to Warner Robins to sit in an attorney’s office and sign our house over to its new owners. This was the first time we had met them. Sue and Ray. What a lovely […]

I’m slap full of anxiety. You know when you pull back one of those pull-back race cars to the point that it won’t pull-back anymore? You’re building up the energy for it to GO. Then you put it on the table and let go. That car zooms off and uses up all that energy as […]

… you’ll think of an amazing kick ass topic to write about at 3am (since you exchanged one for people filling out your survey), promise yourself you’ll remember it, and then – don’t …. as soon as you vacuum or mop the floor, the cat will puke and the kid will decide to crumble goldfish […]

This year, Jason and I started a new thing with Henry at night. We got the idea from someone in our Sunday School class and I don’t even remember who. I guess it doesn’t matter. There are sites all over that talk about it so it’s not really their idea! Anyway, we ask him after […]
