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 […]

In Which I Unleash My Thoughts

Share

Did I tell you about the passport dilemma?  I filled out the application with just barely 6 weeks to spare (and they recommend allowing 4-6 weeks).  I joked that I was half-hoping it wouldn’t come in time.  But since then, I’ve had 20 mile runs.  Twice.  And I would hate for that to have been in […]

A Record of Events (a.k.a. ramblerambleramble)

Share

Olivia did multiplication yesterday at breakfast.  Lunch?  Or was it today?  She was thinking while eating, then looked up and told me, “Three 2’s are 6!”  I was very proud.  And I told her so.  And then she said, “And four 2’s are 8!”  And I kissed her. Josh told Benjamin it was too muggy […]

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 […]

Checking in from Missouri

Share

We made the 7 and a half hour drive in a little over 9 hours, stopping every 60-90 minutes.  I spent most of the ride trying to convince children that, no, they had to stay buckled up while I then simultaneously crawled all over the back of the van doling out snacks and picking up […]

Fall? Already? No! Please! No!!

Share

I have nothing against fall, itself, really.  The weather turns crisp and cool, but in a refreshing way. Like a sip of ice water after a long, hot day. And the leaves are beautiful.  And we have so many of them here.  The colors really are a palette that only an artistic God could create. […]

Never Had This Problem In The City…

Share

Since we moved out here to the middle-of-nowhere to avoid expensive city-rent, we’ve encountered some things we weren’t expecting. Like the orange water. Country water out here is H-A-R-D. So we bought a water softener. Like the moldy walls. The trees here are old and dense. And we live in a valley. Near a creek. […]

Couch Cushion Clutter

Share

Clean out your couch! (Reminiscent of the “Bring out your dead!”, Monte Python-style.) I actually DO clean out the couch cushions at least on a monthly basis. So keep that in mind when you behold the following: That’s right, we’ve got one foam bath toy (the road sign) one letter B one crayon one pencil […]

My Lord God Is Gracious

Share

Even so that he deemed it appropriate to bless me with MY VERY FAVORITE COMFORT FOOD in the midst of a THERE’S-NOTHING-IN-THE-HOUSE-I-WANT-TO-EAT drought.  Observe what I was able to obtain for a grand total of NEGATIVE $1.10 at my CVS run tonight: Ignore the Kashi cereal and diabetes testing kit.  Please focus on the SIX BAGS of […]
