Shopping Woes

I really don’t get it. Really. I went to buy some shorts and other hot weather duds as I have an upcoming trip to Hawaii. I figured since its still 90+ degrees in Austin, I wouldn’t have a problem finding...

Procrastination a.k.a. Book Review from Hell - Part I

Wow, so what’s been going on the last month? Where have I been? Or have you noticed the ‘absence’? Actually, a better question is ‘Where has my ‘free time’ gone the last 2+ YEARS? Well, let me tell you. It’s...

Office Space

Finally. I broke into the office to write! Since my husband, son Alec and I returned from our week in Seattle, I've been ousted from my, I mean our, now Christian's home office. Christian's new job (that kept us in...

Medical Malady & Julia's birthday

So, here I am writing again. After a long bloody time. Maybe it was the ‘allergic reaction’ I apparently got that caused hives over 80% of my body. Hey, click here for a pic of the fun. It’s hot. I...

The Sick House

BEYOND PICKY

What kid doesn’t like juice? What kid doesn’t like grapes? PB&J? Not any longer. I need help – desperately. I think I need a Dr. Mom (or Dad) who can help me with a…uh…problem. I’ve done my research on-line, taken...

REALITY CHECK

It’s always good to have yourself in check. You know if your friends haven’t called in a while or you’re avoiding the scale though your clothes may not fit like they used to. Maybe you need to do a reality...

Ambition

I used to have ambition. After doing well in highschool and college, I went to work for a company where I worked very, very hard and was rewarded nicely. Raises, promotions, you name it. Deciding it was time to further...

Stocking Gifts

Ah…Christmas was quite lovely this year. My mom joined us, Alec 'taught' Julia how to open her gifts, we enjoyed a nice meal, drank some good champagne and of course, cracked open our Christmas Crackers, etc. HOWEVER, I was a...

Poop Privacy Hypocrisy

I realize most parents probably don’t go around telling people about their lack of bathroom privacy beefs or that it is 100% certain that 1+ child will always follow you into the bathroom regardless of the business you must attend...

The Last 24 Hours (of hell)

I’ve been preparing for my in-laws to arrive tonight from England. I’ve left the last 24 hrs for vacuuming, buying fresh produce, ensuring the house is straight, laundry done and so on in order to focus on their visit. So,...

Bug Battle Continues - Scorpions

Ah…so I was going to write about my son’s 4 year-old fraudulent birthday ‘party’ last Saturday but decided I’d write about something more titillating first. I don’t mean to beat this bug battle to death but I found a dead...

Box Wine

Though I’ve actually choked down consumed box wine, I have to admit I am a closet box drinker and then only occasionally to make my cheap financially responsible husband happy. I won’t even throw the empty wine box into...

Buy My House

My husband and I have been trying to ‘brainstorm’ ideas on how to get out the financial ruin sticky situation we’re currently in. See, our house has been on the market a wee going on five months now (ouch)...

Starbucks Drive-Thru's. Where are ya'll?

First off - yeah, I said "ya'll" and I'm totally kidding. I really don't say that. Yet. And, I give – who hid the drive thru coffee joints in this place? In Seattle, you certainly don’t have to drive far...

Are you a NON-CRIMINAL

OMFG. I cannot believe the extent NON-CRIMINALS have to go to just to live. I have been stewing a bit lately due to the administrative hell I’ve been stuck in. Without boring you with all the details (I’m sure other...

She Hates Us - Why?

Julia hates us. At least that is what my husband keeps mumbling repeatedly at 3:00am each morning. I said she only kind of dislikes us, HATE is a strong word. I ALMOST wrote a post the first few days after...

General Bitching

Well, it’s official. I’m ready to NOT BE PREGNANT anymore. That’s right. I’m done. I mean it. I’m concerned that if I brush up against a scratchy surface, I will pop. Seriously. I have exactly two weeks until my scheduled...

Poor Peter Cook

Huh. So 47 year-old Peter Cook is SORRY. How sweet. For those who don't know who I'm referring to - Christie Brinkley's cheating husband. Maybe we should all feel sorry for him. He’s “contrite, “sorry” and “stupid”. According to him...

I’m Sorry I’m Not Fat

Oh, o.k. Yes, I’m terribly sorry I’m not fat. What am I supposed to say to those who scream "you’re so small"? I’m at spinning class yesterday and am at the point I can’t hide the fact that I’m pregnant...

Vacation, Ocean & Merlot

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my fav blogs is Busymom.net. Until now! I didn’t read the site over the weekend and if I would have known what was good for me I wouldn’t have read it today. I mean,...

Don't Cry ME a River Sister!

“I ‘have’ to work”. “I’m SO stressed out and would do anything not to work”. “You’re so lucky you don’t ‘have’ to work”. Excuse me? I couldn't possibly have heard that correctly....
