Stream of Consciousness Sunday! {Aha!!}

I woke up to a screaming child this morning. I fed the kittens, changed their pants, and set them free in the living room. After coffee, an excitement has settled in. I figured it out. The past week has been an energy draining and emotional eye opener. I think I hit on something Friday and…

Random Musings

So, this was a fun week! By fun, of course, I mean ridiculously emotional, stressful to the point of spontaneously groaning, and that my children chose the wrong week to discover the power button on the TV, how to climb the recliner, and “the screaming stage”. If I ever wished that “Uncle” meant something to…

Bad Days Get Better

Today is just one of those days. The burden is heavy and there’s no real relief in sight, only in promise. I’m having to dig deep into my faith bucket and to let God provide refuge from this storm. There are many problems with no immediate solutions. There are chores, but no energy. There are…

Stream of Consciousness Sunday! {Rumors}

I’m pissed off today and venting. You’ll excuse me. Yes? Consider it an open letter… We all know the anatomy of a rumor. Someone sees or hears information they don’t understand, they make an assumption, and then they tell someone else, then that person tells someone, and then four people later, it comes back to…

Bent… Not Broken

I heard this song on the radio this morning that really spoke to me, and I thought I’d share the lyrics with you. (Pardon the ain’ts, they drive me nuts, too.) Group 1 Crew – He Said So your life feels like it don’t make sense And you think to yourself, ‘I’m a good person’…

iPPP: It’s Drawestin (among other things)

I got an iPhone for BIRTHDAY and to say that I’ve been having fun with it is an understatement.  For one thing, I can actually text, which is such a huge bonus, I could cry. My Droid took it upon itself to collapse the keyboard every time I finished poking in a word. Let me…

Random Musings Friday!

Linking up with Shana at Fumbling Towards Normalcy!  * Nobody likes to be wrong, but sometimes it happens and then I, personally, crawl in a hole and hide until the red face wears off. So this week, one of my Facebook friends inquired about grilling. I am not a grilling master by any stretch of…

She Tried It! {The Reuben}

A couple of months ago, Kelly, from Dare to be Domestic, wrote a post called “She Tried It” and mentioned that she’d never tried a Reuben. Coincidentally, I’d never had one either, and so a challenge was born. We decided to try the Reubens “together”, you know, as together as one can do something with…

Hump Day Happy!

FIRST!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAROLINE!  I hope today is as fantastic as it should be! You deserve every bit of BIRTHDAY fun! As far as Aprils go, this one doesn’t suck! I had a fantastic job interview on Monday, and like dating, I’m now in the two day wait. Today is day two. I have no…

Able April

    I had a pretty short list for March also known as BIRTHDAY month. (In case you missed any of the obnoxious posts last month.) The goal was simply: Do something for ME. So, I did. I had my hair cut and highlighted, I finally met one of my blog friends, Julie and painted…
