Some kind of home bug hit.
We set up a an easier recycling system in the garage.
We had new mattresses delivered today.
We put a TV in the bedroom (haven’t had one in there since Dee was born).
We put together a new DVD/Blu-Ray rack.
Chris got a mini-fridge for the garage to keep his craft beer.
I bought a […]

Or not a relaxing day

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Just reread my Christmas post and it says that tomorrow (which is now two days ago) would be a relaxing day- ha! Chris and I were running all over the place and relaxing definitely did not happen. We had two returns, bought a new mattress, a stop at my mom’s, another stop, my in-laws’, and […]

’twas a good one

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

We had a perfectly lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We were at my in-laws’ last night for the annual party. We finally tore ourselves away at 11:30pm and that was only because we knew we had quite a bit of wrapping ahead of us. Chris was very, very tired so I decided to do […]

The spirit

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Really enjoying the holiday season this year. It’s the first time all year that I’ve felt relaxed and not really stressed about anything. Perhaps having all the crap this year has made me appreciate a bit of boring normalcy and realize not everything is that important.
Or maybe I’m getting too old to give a shit. […]

Holiday House Tour

Friday, December 20th, 2013

I’m participating in a virtual Holiday House Tour put on by Jen on the Edge. It was a natural fit since I usually share photos of our decorations. To see the other houses on the tour you can go to this page.
We’ll start with the front door area.

To the right of the door are our […]

Yeah, I know today is Thursday, but I took pics on Monday and we did stuff. So here ya go.
So the thing about my Daisy is she has never mothered a doll. She doesn’t play house. She doesn’t particularly like babies and has more than once mentioned the only reason she will have a husband […]

Santa came early

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Over the last two days I spent 6 1/2 hours driving my children to and from birthday parties. That is not what I call a good time.
Today Daisy kept saying it was Christmas and eventually also said that Santa left us each something. I didn’t really pay attention but later walked into the living room […]

chain gang

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Too tired to write out a post, but didn’t want to go another day with a blank space. The girls made paper chains the other day, but Tabs told me only to post a photo of Daisy. So here.


Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Realized I totally forgot to add a picture yesterday. I’ll add two today just to even it out.
Not much to report on the day. Daisy has a cold, but on the bright side, it seems like a more normal one for her. Not really severe and likely to be sooner rather than later. That’s […]

the vapors

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

I used to tell people that the only time in my life that I came close to fainting was the day after I got my belly button pierced. I was in the shower and was cleaning it as instructed and then swayed a bit and felt like I might keel over from the pain. But […]
