The Heat…

  Well, I have thus far survived two nights of being Home Alone.  I am fairly used to being in the house without my husband.  He has to travel for his job almost every week, and the kids and I are left here to mill about and do whatever it is your average stay home mom does…watch my stories at noon, eat bon-bons, drink the bubbly… Yeah, right.  However, being […]

Home Alone

  Many students across the country are waking up this morning reveling in the fact that TODAY is the first day of Spring Break.  My kids are included in that revelry.  In fact, their celebration started yesterday afternoon around 3:00, as they loaded up the suburban to make the drive to Austin from Houston in order to catch a flight to Denver, Colorado.  You see, we live in Houston.  For […]

Thoughtful Thursdays-Borrowed Things

  I want to talk to you about Borrowed Things.  Several years ago, Jeff and I were in Maui on vacation, and had the need for a box fan.  Anyone who has ever roomed with me at a Retreat, knows that in order to sleep, I must have a wind tunnel present.  Hence the box fan.  Thankfully, our hotel was extremely accommodating, and provided us with a perfectly functioning fan.  Well, five […]

Captain Destructo

So, I had this really interesting thing happen last week, and I was totally going to tell all three people that read this blog about it…but then I remembered that I couldn’t properly relay the impact and gravity of last week’s situation until I fully introduce you to the underlying culprit behind all of the antics. Meet Charley: a.k.a. Captain Destructo Isn’t she sweet?  This picture was taken on June […]

Bad Day

  So, I had a bad day…that happened to last all week.  Last Monday was President’s Day, and my children had the day off from school–I did not.  I had the privilege of driving 40 miles (one way) in Houston traffic, which took me roughly an hour and a half, just so I could spend the first hour of my school day with the world’s crankiest professor.  Awesome.  I honestly […]

Practice Makes Perfect

  A few years ago, my oldest son decided he wanted to be the next great saxophone player.  Actually, what he really wanted was the end of the year reward trip that all of the band kids got to take to the awesome water park–but to get there…he needed an instrument.  So…with the incentive of a $25 admission ticket, our entire household was subjected to a beginning band student’s attempts […]

The Blonde Monster

  The original title of my blog was supposed to be The Happy Housewife Diaries.  Did you know that?  No.  Probably not.  I thought it was funny and quirky, and gave the illusion that I was somehow Donna Reed and June Cleaver all rolled into one.  But, sadly between two different publicists and my husband–that idea hit the cutting room floor, and voila! DallasLouis.com was born.  Now, I told you […]

Time Warp. . .

  Do you ever get the feeling that you have fallen through some sort of deep-space-dark-matter-worm-hole?  That’s where I have recently found myself.  Floating in Deep Space.  It was brought to my attention a few days ago that my website had been absorbed into Cyberspace.  Sad face. Check that.  Extreme sad face. I realize that I have been somewhat negligent in feeding my blog.  Somewhat negligent might be the understatement […]
