Happy Father’s Day

I realize that I have been MIA for quite sometime.  My apologies.  The last few months have been rather hectic around my house.  The end of the school year brings something akin to controlled chaos in daily waves of assault on our family, add a couple of week-long out of town trips, and a two-week-cross-country-family-vacation and voila…y’all are now up to speed! I am just now coming up for air…or […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom: Vol. 6

I haven’t done a Confession in a while…so here goes: I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I have come to the conclusion that I like my kids.  I realize that some of you reading this will shake your heads and think that I am a terrible parent for even contemplating to admit anything less than a super-human-level-of-admiration for my offspring. Allow me to clarify. I never said, […]

Flawless, Fabulous, & FORTY

I have been thinking about this post for a while…a couple of YEARS to be exact.  I just had a birthday.  A BIG birthday…a birthday that women deny with just about every fiber of their being. Last week I turned 40. Gasp. Cough. Choke. You’ll be pleased to know that I can now type and actually say out loud the words “I am forty” without crying uncontrollably…just a small trickle […]

Triangles and More

There is a new song circulating on country radio by artist, RaeLynn.  It’s called “Love Triangle.”  The first time I heard it, I found myself a complete and utter mess.  I’m sure many of you are thinking, “Oh sure, another country song about love gone wrong…who wouldn’t cry over that?” While a love gone wrong IS the main theme of the song, the couple in question is not the song’s […]

Oh, Happy Day…

It has arrived.  Let us all take a moment to fully appreciate THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Now, I realize that not all of my readers out there are experiencing this magical sense of euphoria.  Some of your precious spawns will not start school until next week, or even, gasp, until AFTER Labor Day!  My heart aches for y’all. As for me, I have been counting down and marking days […]

But You Don’t Have A Job

Settle in…I got a little long-winded today! So, yesterday was a SUPER busy day in the Louis household.  School is getting ready to start (Moms everywhere said, AMEN)…my husband was preoccupied mourning the loss of his beloved iPhone (apparently even cell phones have mother boards)…and speaking of MOTHERS, my primary source of distraction for the day took the form of my own mother, who was set to arrive at an […]

An Open Letter to my Husband

So, I’ve been seeing these Marriage Challenges on the Facebook lately…people posting pictures for x-amount of days to boost other people’s interest in their own marriages, and that’s all fine and good.  You should boost morale within your marriage.  Go Team You.  But, the first thing I thought of when I saw the very first of those challenges come across my feed was a chain letter from seventh grade…way back […]

Greetings to all of you out in Cyberville!  I trust that your summers are in full swing and off to a roaring start.  Hopefully your summer has been less eventful than mine.  Thus far, we have seen an orthopaedic for a broken ankle and made a middle of the night emergency room run for a ruptured ear drum/concussion from a wake boarding accident…welcome to my life. For the past week, […]

Lock and Key

  So, my mother has been in town for the past week.  All in all it has been a disappointing week—content wise.  My mother has behaved uncharacteristically well.  Turns out, I am a good wife, a good mother, and a decent house-keeper. Who knew? Yesterday we went to the movies to see, Mother’s Day, the new ensemble cast movie that centers around, you guessed it, Mother’s Day.  Some of the […]

My Boyfriend

So, the day before yesterday we had a fairly significant cold front blow through Houston.  I went to work out and was sweating as I walked from my truck to the gym.  The heat and humidity was crazy high for mid-November…even for a native Texan, such as myself.  By the time I left the gym, a mere forty-five minutes later, it was pouring down rain, and the temperature had plummeted […]
