Being a mother is a blessing. This I know. And I’m truly living the good life – we are healthy and have enough money to not worry too much but little enough that we have reason to strive and be conscious of our choices. We have a roof over our heads and though I might struggle to decide what to make for dinner, there is … Continue reading What I want for Mother’s Day.
I’m linking up with Leigh Kramer to share What I’m Into Lately – the books, music, tv, movies, food, websites, moments in life and photographs that have been making up the backdrop to my life this month.

Yesterday my daughter woke up on the wrong side of the bed. It was like a flashback to 2010 with incessant, incoherent whining that just seemed to linger all day. We’ve all had days like this.

A minute later I realized that I actually had another one already that I kept in the junk drawer because nobody needs two … Continue reading First World Problems #387

Last week was Take Your Kids To Work Day – a holiday that my husband’s place of employment tends to go all out for. We showed up with bells on and did copious amounts of arts and crafts and snacks and photo ops. When we left, I asked my daughter, “What do you think daddy does for work?” “I have literally no idea,” she told … Continue reading Take Your Kids To Work Day: 2015
This week the Top 5 was revealed on American Idol. I’ve had to say goodbye to a few favorites this week (loved Joey Cook and Qaasim Middleton) but overall I’m pretty pleased with how America has been voting. I’ve been voting this year, too, which is relatively new for me as I never really had time to vote before voting closed in years past. They’ve … Continue reading Idol Thoughts: Top 5
