New Years Eve, 2008. And a whole lot of nothing is going on. Kid’s are sickly. Hubby is playing video games. And I’m remembering years of friends and family all gathered together. It makes me sad that we’ve lived here for 4 years and I just don’t have a good connection with anyone. Other than [...]

Well, I still haven’t finished organizing the closet. I was waiting for Craig to decide what sort of shelves to put in there (it’s a big closet) but I just don’t think he’ll get around to it. At least not before I go nuts. So I’ll take care of ordering one today.
The girls are sicky. [...]

Soooo Craig was doing some rewiring of the entertainment systems yetsterday in and around our bedroom closet. I decided today would be a good day to clean out and organize the closet a bit.
Yeah… I’ve torn lots of stuff out of the closet. But as of now I have removed myself to the room in [...]

Merry Christmas everyone! We had a lovely holiday… I’ll post more on that later…
I got Layla for Christmas a kid’s book of poems. It’s called Dirt on my Shirt and it’s by (this is a shocker!) Jeff Foxworthy. (It’s actually a wonderful book. It’s nothing along the lines of his redneck jokes.)
Here is a fun [...]

Today we are in Jersey, where everyone shakes and quivers at the threat of snow and ice. Having lived in Norwich for 4 years now (yikes!) I feel tough, like I’ve seen a thing or two. I’m not scared of that wee bit o’ slush that is coating the ground. You can all stock up [...]

Today, Craigy and I have been “officially” a couple for 10 years! To quote our youngest daughter, “holy moly!”
I can’t believe that is was a whole 10 years ago that we were IMing every night and stuck to each other like glue every where else. Puppy eyes, is the term used most often I believe. [...]

Yesterday I really, really hit a wall of exhaustion. So overwhelmed, I just stood bawling in Craig’s arms 10 minutes before having to leave for church. There just seemed to be so much going on, so much to do, so many people to see, and things to remember and figure out just piling up, up, [...]

Meet Tempy. This is my dog.

Tempy and I have an interesting relationship.
I let her out whenever she wants. She poops on my floor when we go get the mail.
I feed her twice a day. She steals the food off the table when we leave it.
I have provided a couple very comfy pillows and blankets for [...]

It’s raining. And I’m really quite surprised to hear it rain. This time of year’s precipitation usually comes so silently that you just wake up in the morning with a “yikes!” and that’s all there is to it. Except for the shoveling, scraping and shivering, of course. But I’m enjoying the sound of the drip [...]

Well, we didn’t get our big date yesterday. Nor did I get to go shopping at the mall. Instead Craigy and I sat in front of the TV all evening with some sudafed and a box of tissues. Craigy came down with the cold that the girls and I had, and he got it BAD. [...]
