3 pieces of business, my dears.
First, my good friend, the gorgeous and talented Super Woman that is Mrs. Chris, is having a book giveaway at her place. It is a beautiful book, and there's a sample essay from the author for your reading pleasure. So if you're interested, pleas… Read full post »
"It's today!", the little girl said.
I'd misread Cinderella's invitation.
I thought I only needed to call
if we could make it to The Ball.
Too busy, I've been, in my own little corner.
Redeemed upon returning,
my proverbial glass slippers amidst chocolate milk promises.
But mine a… Read full post »
I got our tree put up this past weekend. I was so proud that I did it all by myself! Usually the husband needs to help for height reasons, but I thought myself tall and did it alone. That is until it was time to plug in the lights and I… Read full post »
I don't go to church anymore because I still know too much. My father was my pastor until I left for college, and I'm overly aware of the behind the scenes drama and business required to run a church. Daddy is probably the greatest reverend I've ever known, though there is a… Read full post »
I have four sources for music now that I'm a Mama without much browsing time. First and foremost, I trust my brother's taste and customized recommendations. He always get's it right. The next two inspirations come from the artists I've listened to forever, and the random cast off fr… Read full post »
"So...what are we writing about today?"
"Why are you asking us? You know you're supposed to be finishing that piece for Crabby!!"
"I know, but I'm so behind! You guys finished it like a week ago and so I get tired of typing something you aren't interested in anymore."
"Not our… Read full post »
We had simultaneous brain settling so that we could take a nap together yesterday. Not realizing my husband had come into the room, I startled when I heard his breathing. Sleeping next to our firstborn, I smelled his smell and listened as his breath mixed with our babies' and was deep… Read full post »
So, the fabulous Sarah of No Whey, Mama! put together a small Christmas meme to cheer herself up. Seeing as how I'm sick and everytime I try to accomlish something I either drop it or it spills on me, I've given up on writing anything decent today as well.
Favorite Christmas… Read full post »
A captive always of the cold, I now need the warm to feel free.
Winter means windows up, music turned down.
No loud reminders of my true self, no hair to blow in my face.
Mama in minivan with babies buckled in back becomes
when it's warm enough.

This is really more like three posts in one, but, oh well :).
On the 21st I packed up all of our supplies and took Winston to school. Wedensday had been sick the night before, and so all of my prep-work; tracing, cutting, organizing, had to be… Read full post »
The first didn't want to "ask me out" when he did. He was persuaded, unwillingly. But I was so excited I let that information pass me by. If he had waited my entire life could have, technically, been completely different. One night, standing in my Mom's closet with her, she sa… Read full post »
My turkey was done. Both literally and well, literally. I gave up making my own bird about 3 years ago, when my MIL took the year off. Our turkey comes from the Cajun place right down the street; fried and in need of an hour in the oven. My other turkey had… Read full post »
I'm behind in this little project, but which eye if there is room for it?
I'd be sad if I didn't play along, even if I'm too late again! Read full post »
I believe it all started with my Mom watching “Dark Shadows” at her babysitters house as a child. Somehow, that vampire fascination was transferred to me in utero, and fostered later by R.L. Stine and Anne Rice. Passing the heritage on to my children has been successful as well; their fav… Read full post »
:to take shelter.
As a boy decided to be a garbage man.
He could take out the trash.
Now he empties the bathroom garbage, but doesn't replace the can.
Makes his own dinner, but leaves dishes on desk.
4 different nets in our garage.
I want to be caught. hooked mouth. … Read full post »
The season of pumpkins and twilight.
I should have written about melting tattoos and Miss Louisiana.
Fleeting paragraphs, never nail down to the keyboard.
My husband says I talk too much to the 3 year old.
"He doesn't understand logic, he's just a child".
"Mommy, what does grace mean?"
Logically, I… Read full post »
We planted the seeds the second day of summer camp. I wanted the pumpkins to grow with the boys.
They proceeded to take over the entire backward; an ocean of giant orange blossoms just a month ago.
At the first sign of an actual pumpkin, my heart nearly burst.… Read full post »
I decided to go ahead with this post after reading Buckeyedoc's most recent offerings. Here's to ruining someone's holidays...

Although the euphoria Obama’s supporters felt on the night of his election is slowly wearing off, the historical meaning has not. Since Obama’s election win I’ve seen small, passionate groups of people protesting the war on the street, and had strangers speak with such sinceri/… Read full post »
This piece is in response to a fellow Crabbygolightly contributor's recent post on Thomas Beatie.
Though the topic is serious, it was done with a good amount of jest. As Jewel says, "I'm sensitive and I'd like to stay that way". Happy reading...
When I woke up this morning the first… Read full post »
Good Morning! Above is our general plan. We're making banana pancakes, enjoying the goodies our neighbor brought last night, and trying to figure out what to do with 2 large bags of ponderosa lemons.
But first, you have to make sure everyone has at least… Read full post »
The baby is feeding the cat
and I'm starving.
I won't eat until both boys are home.
That was the hardest question.
When home is the nook of his neck,
the smell of their heads,
there aren't songs for that.
Sometimes I forget their Hershey kiss eyes.
Mine can't ever decide.… Read full post »
We all know that Barack Obama is gonna sweep this thing, so I'm not even including him on my feeble list. Also, are we going to have a Sexiest Woman Living contest as well? Because I already have my contenders all lined up. I've read through the other responses as well… Read full post »
