My third boy…

My third boy, Will, is quite the talker. It is kind of cute, but sometimes we just need some peace and quiet. I guess he gets it from my husband, because I have never been a huge talker. Luke, my middle son, who also happens to be my quietest, will cover his ears sometimes and tell me, “Mom, make him be quiet!” Very difficult to do… My husband Mike had an inspiration this weekend while he and my other sons were subjected to this unending commentary by Will on the road. “All right, boys. Let’s play the quiet game! Let’s […]

Not very musical, but I do love music!

All right, so I found out how to post a playlist. Movin’ on up, to the 21st century! Thank you to my music fanatic friend Leslie… As you can probably tell, I love Brad Paisley because he is so “real” and because he is married to the actress in one of my favorite movies “Father of the Bride”. Oh, yeah, plus I like his voice and music. Does he write his own songs? If you know, let me know, ‘kay? I also love Christian music for its inspiration and hope. I do like lots of other music, though. It is […]

Catchin’ up…

Well, it has been about a month now since I last posted. I am quite the undisciplined blogger, but I choose to forgive myself, and hope you will, too. The very thing I feared has come to pass. Our crazy like a fox president has just smilingly forced through a huge “stimulus” package that will bring us ever closer to looking, acting, smelling like socialist Europe. He has already reversed the “no funds for international abortions” executive order that President Bush signed in, and now he wants to overhaul healthcare. What crazy parallel universe am I living in? No doubt, […]

Top things to never do/say to your labor and delivery nurse…

Hey, I have my very detailed birthing plan here. (You are so asking for trouble on this one — it is Murphy’s Law that you will end up with an emergency c/section at three o’clock in the morning, or you will suddenly find yourself humiliated as, at 1 cm dilated, you turn into a raving lunatic who is screaming for her epidural — trust me on this, I have seen it way too many times. Just let things flow naturally and be open to what comes.) Can I have my mom, my mother-in-law, my two sisters, my best friend and […]

If only I could get something done!!

Okay, so I took this week off at work to get my house organized. It’s January, right? “Getting organized” is the second resolution most people go for in the New Year. I bet you already know the first one, right? Ding, ding — you guessed it, lose weight! Yeah, whatever. That one is a lost cause for me — although if I do happen to lose 30 pounds this year, you will see LOTS of pictures of me on this blog. No false humility here… So, here it is, my third day off of work and I have accomplished… Hmm, […]
