Legacy

I said good-bye to a friend of mine today. She’s moving to Phoenix, Arizona, and well, I’m a bit sad. Good news though, she has a pair of chairs that she has promised me so I have to go pick them up this week. I’ll be honored to have those chairs in my house. She’s a little bit older than…

I Couldn’t Do It, but it Wasn’t Because of Her

I like my dog Lucy, but I don’t like the fact that she does dog things. I mean, she can’t help it, but I wish she could. She’s sweet, but she has bad breath, so don’t get in my face. She doesn’t eat much, but poops a lot. She is obedient, but still doesn’t understand that it’s not nice to…

On Her Watch

There was a time in her life when she loved and hated him. Her father was an alcoholic, but the kind that, thankfully, never laid a hand on her. He loved her and her siblings regardless of the amount of booze on his breath. Her mom was a hot-headed Irish woman with a wit to boot. She grew up knowing…

To Breck and Back

Hello? (Phoo, phoo.) Is this blog on? How is everyone?!?!? Well, I’ve been home for several days and haven’t done boo on my blog here. Maybe it’s just so darn hard to get back in the groove after a vacation that this here blog really fell to the bottom of the list. pardon. We had a great time in Colorado.…

This Might Be the Last Time

I was driving around yesterday and thinking about the little person growing inside of me. As of right now, this isn’t all that fun. The nausea, the thought of two toddlers in another year. Wow. But, then I got to thinking about ten years from now. Boog will be 21, Goose, 19, Monkey 12, and this one, 10. Wow, again.…

What Goes Around, Might Just Come Back Up

Let me just recap my Fourth for you. No biggy, no super amounts of drama or anything, but there are just a few things I’d like to highlight for you. I started as an other normal day. Warm, breezy. Hubs had taken the big girls to go ride the float in the city parade again this year. I think this…

Little Monkey and Her Words

You’ll have to excuse me for a minute. You see, I used to be a scrapbooker, but seein’ as how I’m about eight years behind, I thought I’d use my blog to, at least, put something down in writing and attach a picture that has to do with my youngest. However, there will only be one picture here because this…

I’m Not Really Sure How it Spread

Last week my sweet little Monkey broke out with, what looked like, a couple of canker sores. Poor sugar, didn’t want to eat and grabbed at her mouth when she did eat. I tried to get a good look in there, but being one and a half, she didn’t really get the whole, “Baby, open your mouth and let me…

A Few Bucks is Always Fun

Before you read my boring post on garage sale prep, go out to Travis Cottrell’s web site and take a look see at the up and coming CD! Then go to BooMama for a chance to win one of 20! If hosting a garage sale was as easy as wandering through garage sales then I’d have one every weekend until…

What is it about The Lake?

What is it about “the lake.” I haven’t been to many, but it seems to me that the “locals” like to all have a conference and decide that each and every diner should come with a picture of Elvis, booths from the previous diner that once stood at that very spot, and a waitress names Rita. Now, I’m not knockin’…
