The Eye Patch

Hey now…it’s a Thoughtful Thursday…on a TUESDAY!!! So, Thanksgiving is in TWO DAYS.  I hope you’re ready for it.  I think I am.  In fact, at our house, we are having a Merry Thanksmas.  Yesterday afternoon I managed to put the finishing touches on my Christmas decorations, save one. I have one Nativity scene that still needs to go up. The last remaining hold-out on my decorations is a lovely […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

To shop or not to shop?  That is the question.  There is no doubt about it…I am in full-blown-hands-down-four-alarm-Holiday-Mode (as evident by my last post).  I have a boat-load of family coming in next week to celebrate Turkey Day, and I could not be more excited! My television is steadily reminding me through a never-ending stream of festive commercials that Christmas is coming.  So, that brings me to my next […]

I Know It’s Early

  Okay, I know it’s early…but let me explain. First of all, I love Christmas.  That’s it.  I simply LOVE, love, LOVE, Christmas.  I love how most people (there are exceptions to every rule) are in a perpetual good mood.  I love the happy and festive music.  I love remembering the Christmas Story, and thinking about Jesus coming to us as a baby.  I love Christmas movies…even the really terrible […]

My New Normal

So, I realize that it has been over a week since my last post.  I apologize.  I often stand stock-still in the middle of my house, stare off into space, and wonder what in the world I’m supposed to be doing. Why do I do such things? My new normal has me walking…some days running in circles. I had the idea for this post on Saturday night as I was […]

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, […]

Lessons From Leander

I grew up just outside of Austin, Texas.  I now live in Houston, Texas, and my name is Dallas…feel free to insert your own joke here ____.  I figure that I just about have most of the major metroplexes covered.  Why am I telling you this? I grew up just outside of Austin. If I told you I lived in a little-bitty town called Leander, Texas…there are only five people […]

A Pirate’s Life For Me

I spend a lot of airtime poking fun at my kids and their antics…I’ve even been known to point a laughing finger or two at the Man of my Dreams…what can I say?  My family simply provides me with ample material to write about, and quite frankly, telling all of you about it is WAY cheaper than seeing a shrink once a week. Just so y’all know that I too, […]

Be The Adult

I’m not sure why the topic of divorce has been on my mind so much lately…relax…me and the Man of my Dreams are doing just fine!  In fact, today is birthday! Happy Birthday, Sweetie!! Perhaps it is the goodness of our relationship that has me thinking about the countless other relationships out there that are struggling.  It is no secret that both my husband and myself came from divorced homes.  […]

The Super Bug

  So, I have gotten roughly twelve hours of sleep since Thursday…today is Monday.  No, my husband did not take me back to Las Vegas to party like a rock star.  The reason for my lack of shut-eye is much less exciting and much more disgusting. My house has been attacked by this season’s latest Super Bug. Trust me when I say, it is a whopper.  It all started on […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom, Vol. 5

At 6:03 this morning I yelled at my Golden Retriever for basically doing her job, which was barking to alert me that someone was in the house.  Now, the someone who happened to be walking through my living room was my youngest child.  Therefore her bark succeeded in only irritating what little patience I was already praying was going to be substantially more than the day before… It was not.
