Random Bits

None of these are long enough for a separate blog post all their own, so they are having a lesson in sharing. Speaking of sharing, my boys share a room.  And almost every morning they wake up ready to brawl, waking the rest of us with the sound of their fighting.  I say “almost” because […]

Going To Lighten the Mood Some

Via my facebook feed between 1 and 2AM Tuesday into Wednesday. DO YA’LL KNOW HOW AWESOME IT IS TO HAVE THE CAPS LOCK ON YOUR KEYBOARD STUCK IN THE ON POSITION? WHAT’S THAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOUR ANSWER OVER MY YELLING. WAIT, YOU SAY YOU DON’T? WELL NOW YOU MIGHT. ALSO, CONGRATS ON NOT BEING […]

Fears

I think I am finally starting to realize why I haven’t been reading blogs much anymore. So many (not all) of my favorite blogs are written by women who have lost babies/children or who have extremely ill children, who weren’t necessarily born so.  Honestly, they often are some of the most passionate and even well […]

Hair Today, It’ll Be Gone Tomorrow

It is no secret that hair and I don’t get along.  I can’t stand to have it brush against my face and/or neck.  I’d grow it out and wear it up/back, but ponytails. clips and headbands give me tension headaches and migraines.  So?  I cut it short.  Really short.  Actually, using the word “cut” is […]

First I need to say this for the world to hear. I could not do what my husband does. Which is good, because he’s so good at it he doesn’t need competition. In return, he couldn’t do what I do. Which is also good, I enjoy being the working parent. We are both where we […]

Books

I have a pile of books from the library I’m been slowly working on. And I refuse to return any unread so I keep renewing them. I mean, this has been my project all spring. It was a serious mountain. And just as it started to be gone, I went back and checked out another […]

Today Did Not Go As Planned

The plan for the day was to sleep in, shower, dress, make-up, leave the house at noon, be at park by half past noon, and then play the afternoon away. My mom was going to meet us there after church with the boys, since they spent Saturday night with her. 15 minutes before we leave […]

This Just In…

Our obsessions and compulsions start because we want to stop the anxiety.

This Just in…

You know it’s a good day at work when the phrase, “Hey Karen, we need your OCD over here!” gets said more than once.
