Law & Order, Mommy Style

Share

I just listened to a solid thirty minutes of testimonies, debates, arguments, and accusations from my children in a frighteningly realistic courtroom setting (which was really my kitchen while I finished dinner.) Benjamin’s side: Benjamin found a penny on the toy room floor. He then declared that penny to be his. Levi saw the penny […]

Copy-Cat Pamela’s Gluten Free Flour Mix

Share

Honestly, I haven’t done the math to see how much cheaper this is than Pamela’s.  I buy my flours in bulk on Amazon.com using Subscribe & Save to get even better deals.  Surely it has to be cheaper. Better yet, it doesn’t have any baking soda/powder, dry buttermilk powder, salt, or anything else that an […]

I put this on Facebook and then realized I could also put it here…

I want to blog. Yet also sleep. And sleep-blogging would not fare well, for drool would inevitably blow up my laptop, I’m pretty sure. Alas, the hard choices of my life. Maybe in four and half weeks, when we’re done with school, I’ll have time to blog more. But I have a feeling something else […]

Is It Just Me, Or Does “Normal” Change Entirely Too Often

Share

PICTURES BELOW!!!  (For those of you who don’t like lots of words… :-D) I thrive in routine.  My children thrive in routine.  When there’s a big change, it takes me (and them) a couple weeks at best to adjust and find my new normal.  Given this past year… I feel like I’ve barely righted myself […]

Back From San Diego, But Life Ain’t Normal Yet!

Share

So we arrived home from San Diego around 6pm Sunday evening.  We thought life was finally going to be normal – but then we opened up the door.  We found that a window had been left open (by whomever put in the new sink and cabinet in our bathroom while we were gone), the humidity […]

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. […]

Update on My WOPS Status: Oy. Busy.

Share

(If this picture is messed up, I blame the fact that I’m posting this via iPhone.) These are my counters. It’s the aftermath of pizza night. And an indication of the craziness of this past week. Josh wanted to work late on Monday, but I reminded him it was Valentine’s Day and he came home […]

I Want to Come Back

Share

Hello, Blogging World! Nothing like being gone three months and going through a life-changing experience to hinder the blogging bug! I’ve been thinking lately that if all you have to go on is the blog, you might get the impression that I am laying glassy-eyed on the couch, contemplating life without my mom.  But I […]

Avoiding It

Share

I’ve been avoiding the blog. You know I’m not afraid to dig deep.  And this is where I do that.  But I don’t want to dig yet. I know I need to.  Part of me does want to.  But I can’t; not while surrounded by a swarm of children.  When I start this, it needs […]
