One of THOSE Meetings

Happy mid-week!  Are you watching the Olympics? American Idol? The Bachelor? Lost? SOOO much going on TV right now.  And the cool thing is, with Twitter, I don’t have to watch any of it, and I’m still in the know. Except for Lost. But I don’t even think Lost watchers know what’s going on there. […]

Have you ever had one of those days when you shouldn’t be allowed out of the house? This pretty much sums up my February. I think it’s the weather. It has me allajumble. Yes, that’s all one word. Like out of nowhere we get some light snow chances this morning. But did I wake up […]

My Kids Deserve a Grammy

Did you all watch the Grammy’s? I thought they were semi-entertaining. Here’s the rundown. Lady GaGa: I’m not a fan. I was at first just because she was so unique and the songs were catchy. But it drives me nuts how many times she works her own name into her performances. I think Lady G […]

Snow Day Manual: Part Deux

As mentioned Friday, I am SURROUNDED by “snow days are bad!” negativity. The Snow Day Prejudice is becoming an epidemic around here as today marks our seventh snow day. And there are certain unnamed people who are right now at this moment poking pins in voodoo dolls with curly hair and short legs. Thus was […]

Join Hands and Embrace the Snow Day

My friend, Snow Loving Holly and her family on Sled Day. (Used without permission and shamelessly stolen off Facebook) It’s Friday, and much of the South is being beautifully pummeled by a winter storm. Ice, sleet, snow, and sledding. I have today off–Snow Day. This will not be new information to anyone, but I happen […]

My Accent is Fake

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance/Christian Work at Home Moms interviewed me last week. Thought I’d further embarrass myself and share. If you listen close enough you can hear the few moments where all thought CLEARLY leaves my head. It’s almost audible. And my out-of-control twang. George Strait ain’t got nothing’ on me here. And God bless […]

Pigs in the Sunshine

TGIF. I’m so glad to see the weekend. Last weekend was busy, busy, busy. I woke up Friday with my eyeball all cyclopsy, which STRESSED me because I was to be in my good friend Leslie’s wedding the very next day. So I went to the doctor, got some drugs, and went home and said […]

A Quick Pre-New Year’s Post

I need to make this quick because it’s almost New Year’s. And that means I have to get some resolutions and goals together and pretend to be all organized and motivated about this 2010. And what do we call 2010 by the way? 2009 was oh-nine. (Or ought-nine if you’re country. Or my late grandfather.)  […]
