Lumberjack and #5 spent the morning playing dinosaurs and watching Elmo while I slept…

Now and Then

September 27, 2012

Then Now   Somethings in life make you step back and pause and think, what just happened here?   I have been having a lot of these lately, especially since the Lumberjack essentially started living with us (he still has his own place, at least till the big move coming up, it’s just that he’s just here […]

Package deal

September 18, 2012

My mom, I love her to pieces but she really has a pessimistic, angry, jaded view on life.  She can take something that most people would see as  a positive, and quickly turn it to a negative.  She was recently visiting and I got 2 earfuls and a half on her philosophy, even though she has […]

Hitch your Wagon

September 18, 2012

Betty and I were having a conversation the other day, about how everyone was telling her she needed to hitch her wagon.  Wagons are large and heavy and hard to pull by hand with just one person, you don’t get very far, you get  increasingly tired and worn out, and there is a long road […]

What does the future hold?

August 19, 2012

I have been thinking about this a lot lately, where do I see myself in a year? In 5 years?  When I am 80 and old and grey?  Honestly I have no idea.  In my past I have dreamed and hoped and set plans, and you know what? I’m over it. The way life is […]

Ex- anniversary? that day you wish no longer happened

July 31, 2012

Mine was the other day and caught me by surprise as I wasn’t looking forward to it, and it no longer needs to be celebrated, but rather could just drop off of the calendar forever and I would be happy.    Normally, when I was married, it was a really stressful day.  A day where […]

Shaving and Waxing oh my!

July 29, 2012

I don’t know when I got so hairy, whether the hair is new and just appeared one day or has been slowly creeping up on me and I just didn’t notice it.  But it’s here now and I spend more time than I want to admit agonizing over it… I see a lady at a […]

Head meet brick wall.

July 12, 2012

So sometimes bad decisions in our past follow us into our present and drag forward into our futures… We go into our day expecting certain expectations, and when things don’t end that way it is extremely frustrating. Especially when we have been through this before, 4 times before, to be precise each time going forth […]

Panty free friday

July 4, 2012

Lumberjack told me it was panty free Friday,it was almost 8 at night. If he had told me earlier I would have gladly participated throughout the day. We were getting ready to head out for the evening with the Green Lantern and Betty to the nicest place in town. I almost fell for it, until […]

A fathers love

June 17, 2012

A father is not a sperm donor, but a man who raised children and shapes them for better. He who teaches them right from wrong, who holds them when they cry, who tickles their little toddler tummies, and gives bandaids on owies.  He who throws the football and drinks tea with teddy bears.  He who answers […]
