31 Sure Fire Ways to Screw Up Your Kids

Posted on

Raise your hand if you’ve ever gone to counseling. If you didn’t raise your hand, it’s not because your parents were perfect or that you actually have your schtuff together. You either didn’t raise your hand because: you’re lying; you didn’t hear the question; you were raised with strict religious, intellectual, or spiritual shaming messages […]

Recycle Those Pillowcases, Girls!

Posted on

I’m a thrifter.  I love thinking outside the box and have been recycling, or upcycling, or repurposing old clothes or sheets or parts of clothes for a very long time.  Once I made Emily and myself skirts from a pair of Jason’s khaki’s he had cut off…and I’ve even stooped to make myself workout shirts […]

Your Peacock…Your Peacock!

Posted on

Let me see your peacock!I couldn’t resist. Unfortunately I’ve heard the song.  I have another post for another day regarding my affection for Katy Perry, but not today. Let’s just say, since I don’t really know what I’m doing before I go into a project like this, unfortunately I’m not able to write a DIY […]

So, along with Ryan’s page of translated words, one thing that he says regularly is, “Nice,” as in, “Yes,” “Nice, I like what you are thinking,” or “Totally!  Now we’re tracking, Lady!” It’s pretty much my favorite thing, along with “Peas” and “Deek Doo” which translate: Please and Thank you! Without further ado, here’s the […]

Some Friday FUN!

Glass Class

Posted on

For my 40th birthday in January, Jason and Emily gave me a gift-certificate to do a glass sculpting class.  Seriously, this was the most thoughtful gift I’ve ever been given. Jason knows I am a huge fan of glass blowing and glass work.  Whenever Dale Chihuly specials are on PBS the channel turns no further…I […]

My Little Lover

Two exciting things happening in this picture:  One, Ryan is sitting at his big boy table, and two, he’s practicing blowing his own nose.  (Em’s old Jenny Lind table and chairs.) Ryan and I have been heading out on bike rides in the mornings.  He thinks his sister’s hand-me-down helmet is pretty cool (hula dancer […]

A Funny

Posted on

(Photo: What’s Cooking in America) After dinner Em was searching the freezer for the stash of chocolate chips. As she was going to shut the door a bag of walnuts slipped off the top shelf. In her 9 year old way, she tried to shut the freezer door while the walnuts fell in mid-air instead […]

Go Green

These are some veggies I’ve been juicing lately.  I couldn’t rotate the picture for some reason, which is annoying, I know, but what has stood out to me the most as I’ve juiced one or two times a day is how colorful the foods are and how great I feel.  For some reason when I […]
