Don’t Hurt the Kroger Person!

A crazy-life update, in all its colorful glory. A lot has happened in the eight months since I last forced myself to write. I suppose I chose this moment to catch up, because, why not. I’ve thrown my hands up, and a keyboard is as good a place as any to land. The hubs is…

Clinic Tour and Tortillas

Today our friend Donna gave the boys a tour of the urgent care center where she works. It was a slow day, so there weren’t really any patients around. The boys got to see how vitals are taken, and got their height and weight and vision checked. They got to see treatment rooms and the…

It Adds Up to a Good Day

Yesterday marked the first day, since we graduated from cheese rolls to soft-taco-no-lettuce, that Isaac ordered something new at Taco Bell. We are now in the era of the Doritos Locos Taco. While out on our errands, we discovered that Office Depot is moving and they are deeply discounting everything. The boys got excited about…

2013 According to Facebook

Since I haven’t yet come to terms with making microblogs, and mostly post the interesting stuff in status form, here are some FB status selections from 2013. As it turns out, I did a lot of photo statuses early in the year, which I can’t easily copy. That’s okay. There is enough fun after November…

The Wish List

Yesterday unexpectedly became a “free” day — one of those lovely days that we don’t have to be anywhere in particular. So, I thought it would be a good day to try a little experiment I’ve been thinking about. However, we ended up deciding to go to Legoland Discovery Center in the middle of the…

Start Your Engines

I’m having inertia issues. It’s been so long since I’ve blogged that I don’t try because the “catch-up” is too intimidating. I have an anal desire to have all the events of interest over time logged, as to forget none of the cute toddlerisms or preschool milestones or family adventures. I shall attempt to let go…

One-Eyed, One-Hand Crying Little-People Feeder

I’m starting the year off with a bang. Friday night, I put my contacts in a case and discovered my saline bottle was empty. I grabbed an open bottle from under the sink thinking it was fairly fresh and squirted some in my case. Saturday morning, I discovered the painful way that the saline expired three years…

Slip and Slide Semi-Fail

We “enjoyed” a gorgeous day last weekend. Most of us were recovering from a bug, but I couldn’t help myself when I thought of a plan. I’d been forever wanting to try to make a slip and slide down the hill in our yard, so I took action. I laid down moving blankets, since the…

Memorial Day Weekend Staycation

We were craving some adventure when the Memorial Day weekend was approaching. We considered Chattanooga and Dollywood as options, but we waited until the last minute…again, to make plans, so hotels were scarce, expensive or crummy. So, we opted to stay a few nights at the Marriott resort near Stone Mountain. It fulfilled the boys’…
