Captain Destructo Strikes Again…

It occurred to me that many of my international readers missed out on Captain Destructo’s summer ordeal.  For those of you who may be new to my circus, welcome, and please don’t forget to check your sanity at the door.  For the rest of you, I know why y’all keep coming back–my life makes your life look life a walk in the park with a fist full of dandelions. Captain […]

A Trustable Template

  We all hope that our children grow up to be strong and independent.  Right?  That’s the end goal.  The finish line is in sight.  They cannot live at home, in my house forever?  Eventually they will leave.  I mean, I moved out and away from my parents’ house.  Eventually, my parents moved out of the state and halfway across the country to ensure that I could not move back […]

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 […]

Crushin’ It!

Yesterday I took Ethan to have his haircut.   Through the course of the appointment, Susan began telling me about her latest adorable addition: Her new grandbaby.  We began to reminisce about all of the years she has been cutting my hair and watching my children grow.  However, she doesn’t often get to physically see my kiddos any more.  My time at the salon is mine! But, Ethan needed an emergency […]

So, I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a crappy couple of days.  Is it Monday?  It feels like it should be Monday.  This Monday has been dragging on and on and on for days… Enough already!  I had a hunch that today was headed straight for the gutter when I attempted to get dressed.  That’s right folks–attempted. The first go-round was not successful.  Repeat: was not successful. Take a good, […]

She’s Crazy

Some people can look at me, shake their head, and say, “She is crazy.” They would not be wrong. Years ago, Waylon Jennings had a song out with a line that went something like this, pardon me while I paraphrase, I’ve always been crazy, but it kept me from going insane.  I believe that to be true.  I think that a little crazy keeps you grounded.  Especially down here in […]

So, last week we had our first Parent/Teacher Conference of the new school year.  Today is Monday, and I am just now recovering enough to jot down a few of the highlights from the meeting that occurred on Thursday. Yeah…it was that good. First of all, let me preface this statement with the reminder that I have three children.  My oldest has moved on to high school–which in and of […]

Well, I’m not dead. Sigh of relief.  I’m just probably the worst stay-home-mom on the planet.  Truth be told, I was SO MUCH BETTER at managing my time when I had no time to manage, than I am right now.  Let that statement sink in for a minute.  Last Spring, while I was still in school, I was up to my eyeballs busy–busy like nobody should be busy–EVER.  I think […]

Pluto

Well, I think this is it.  I have finally cracked.  I knew this day would eventually come, although I had hoped that when it came, I would not actually know it had come.  I had always been under the impression that crazy people did not know they were crazy.  I was wrong.  Let me ask you something: What do you know about the planet formerly known as Pluto? Turns out, […]

Thrown Away

Most of my posts on this site are funny and goofy and poke fun at one, two or all members of my family–I did not intend for that to happen, but they give me so much ammunition that I just cannot help it!  However, today’s post has been rolling around in my head for days…and it is neither funny nor goofy, and pokes fun at no one.  So continue at […]
