Ungrateful neighbors & good friends!

Ungrateful neighbors & good friends!

I am all about helping people out when they need it, but sometimes there is a fine line between helping out and being taken advantage of.  And I think that line is being crossed.  I have a neighbor who is notorious for taking advantage of good-hearted people when it comes to watching her kids.  She […]

Coiffed, waxed, & plucked!

Coiffed, waxed, & plucked!

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate rain?!  Especially when I have just been to the salon and gotten my hair done?!  Yuck.  I got my roots done this morning, which was beyond needed.  It was getting to the point where the roots were longer than the blonde.  Okay, maybe that is a slight […]

Grudges

Grudges

I pride myself on being open-minded and forgiving, but I am definately having issues with the ex-husband.  I didn’t think any of the drama with him bothered me any more, but I am beginning to think that I was fooling myself, that it was just a matter of out of sight, out of mind.  At […]

Holy migraine, Batman!

Holy migraine, Batman!

I think the combination of stress plus no sleep has come back to bite me in the ass.  To say that I feel like I have a tribe of dwarves mining in my skull with very sharp pickaxes would be putting it mildly!  My usual homeopathic remedy of cayenne pepper pills are doing nothing.  Aleve […]

It’s about choice and respect.

It’s about choice and respect.

There is nothing I hate more than labels, even though I know sometimes they are necessary.  But labels can be so limiting in someone’s perception of you, or your own perception of yourself.  I hate being put in a box because of what someone labels me.  Just because someone labels you as something doesn’t mean […]

Adventures in yarn,…

Adventures in yarn,…

Sometimes I think I am an idiot! I bought some cheap, but yummy feeling yarn from JoAnn Fabrics a few weeks ago and I have been using it to make a simple v-stitch scarf.  Well, I finished it last night and started putting the fringe on it.  This morning, I picked it back up to […]

My son, the Super Hero!

My son, the Super Hero!

There once was a little-known super hero known as Donovan.  He didn’t wear a cape, but a pair of slightly worn, slightly smell running shoes.  One day, he was running with his posse through the streets of his village for cross-country practice.  As they were running through the side streets, they came upon a car […]

To Syracuse & back!

To Syracuse & back!

Holy hell!  What a day!  Let’s see,… we left for the cleft clinic at 0630, after having drugged the Ty-man with the doctor-recommended Benedryl, an attempt at not having a puke fest the entire way!  It was successful, as he was asleep about 20 minutes into the 2-hour drive!!  I think he finally woke up […]

My cleft palate cutie!

My cleft palate cutie!

Road trip! So Ty and I are taking a little road trip tomorrow!  We are leaving at 0630, so let’s hope Donovan manages to get everyone on the bus at 0700.  They will all be up before we leave, so all should be well!  Ty and I are headed to Syracuse to the Central New […]

Migraines & madness,…

Migraines & madness,…

I broke my cardinal rule of not fighting with Corey while he is deployed, but stuff just boiled over and out it went.  We ended with all the right words, which is important, but getting to the “I love you” wasn’t easy.  I hate fighting like that, especially with him deployed, but sometimes the holding […]
