C Diff Free (Except that it really can be an expensive disease to cure…)

Share

Well hello there! My name is Beth and I’ve been c diff free for… Weeks now.  (I’m bad with remembering details, such as the passage of time.) I faithfully took my $133 (after insurance) liquid antibiotic that was supposed to taste like cherries. (Ha!).  I could have gotten the pill form but that would have […]

Baby Season

Share

Spring is baby season for me.  Or, at least, it has been. Every other year since 2005*, I’ve had a spring baby. 2005, 2007, 2009… And here I sit in 2011 with an empty womb. Granted, it’s been a trying year.  I spent three months separated from my husband, taking care of my mom.  Then […]

I’m Better Now

Share

Sometimes it seems I only post the bad parts of my day. The melodramaticness of this morning passed rather quickly after I posted about it. We went inside.  Benjamin put his hangers in his shirts and then whined about going outside, which I told him was out of the question.  I put all of 30 […]

Sometimes I Just Give Up

Share

Like when I tell my 5yo to look at the overcast covering of clouds and she says, “I do not see any clouds.” I give up. When my 3yo says he’d rather sit on the living room floor staring at the wall than put hangers in shirts so he can come join us outside. I […]

In Which My Brain Uncramps

Share

I have disappeared. I told them to pick up the train tracks and then slipped into the back bedroom and shut the door. I’m all for open floor plans, but sometimes I just need a hiding place. When I’m the only adult around, my brain refuses to stop. My ears are unable to stop listening. […]

The Kitchen Timer Story

Share

Sometimes my kids do things that just make me want to cry. This afternoon, for example, Benjamin (who is almost four) threw my kitchen timer on the floor.  I didn’t see the first throw; I figured someone had simply dropped something.  I was curious when I heard the second throw.  I came in just in […]

I Think I Offended The Garbage Man

Share

For the 17th consecutive week, I forgot to have Josh take the garbage out on garbage day. So when I saw the truck rumble up to our neighbor’s driveway, I grabbed my coat and rushed out. But, rewind, this was a weird morning where Josh was actually here when the children awoke. (Since he didn’t […]

WOPS, Lumps, and Flattery are All Fine Topics, I Promise.

Share

Well, the craziness of the past two weeks is over.  Perhaps I should start blogging again?  Honestly, Between Valentine’s day and this past Sunday, the kids saw Josh that first Monday, the following Friday, Sunday morning for church, Wednesday, Friday again, and then Saturday night for a birthday party.  He was trying to get a […]

Is it Bedtime Yet? UPDATED

Share

Benjamin misplaced his green goblin toy last night. So naturally, today has been an onslaught of “where is the green gobawin? When will we find the green gobawin?” I finally told him not to ask that anymore. I hadn’t even drawn my next breath when he asked it again. So into timeout he went. When […]

Because Rambling About Shopping Trips Can Be Fun

Share

We went to the mall yesterday to combine a $15/50 coupon with a jean sale at Old Navy. After piling all the kids into the car, then out of the car and into the stroller, then through the mall doors that weren’t really created to accommodate double jogging strollers, I found that I hadn’t read the fine […]
