All is Calm, All is Bright

It’s that time of year again! I posted this one last year but it deserves a re-run because there’s been an addition in my neighborhood that can only add to the holiday festivities. Below is the original post called The Lights that Light the Lights: I can tell my neighbors are feeling the holiday spirit … Continue reading

Almost Wordless Wednesday: Spring Break

Holding My Ground

Like everyone else, our house is coming down from the sugar high of the holidays and we’re trying to get things back to normal — that is, IF my house was really filled with normal people :). One of the things we did this weekend was to sort through my son Jake’s closet and clean … Continue reading

I can tell my neighbors are feeling the holiday spirit when I take my dog Winston (aka Stink Monster) for a walk. I started to notice it a couple of weeks ago but it hit full-force the weekend after Thanksgiving. Everyone started putting up their lights and decorating outside their homes.

A Christmas Story

I absolutely positively LOVE the movie A Christmas Story. I’ve even been known to quote lines from the movie like when I was having my Pure Unadulterated Mommy Rant here. I don’t need to tell you this is great holiday movie — and if you haven’t seen the movie, shame on you! Go rent this … Continue reading

Welcome to this year’s Thanksgiving post. I’m trying to wrap up everything today so I can take a few days off for Thanksgiving. I have no words of gratitude wisdom, no thoughts about the things we should be thankful for and nothing to add to my Transformation Moments section. And no, I will not be … Continue reading
