Extracurricular activities. I never imagined I would struggle with these two little words. And yet. Our girls are six. And still not enrolled in anything. Now, it’s not like we’re trying to raise Olympic Athletes here. We’ve always believed we should let them develop their own interests. Or the same ones. And it’s made sense to begin with the… Read More Ducks in a Row
Our iMac and MacbookPro are approximately six years old. Which means so is my Adobe CS 5 software. Considering all of these have been running like a 1812 Steam Engine and that my need for mobile use of the Creative Suite increases daily, it’s clear it’s time to upgrade. Last week, I went to the mall to compare the MacBook Pro with the Microsoft… Read More Resistance is Futile
Sometime around mid-November, the weather here plummeted into freezing temperatures. I guess we really were having a warm year, because although we weren’t exactly walking around in shorts anymore, I was so wholly unprepared for such an extreme change that my only choice in getting to the store one morning was grabbing Sarah & Ashley’s only winter jackets out… Read More Let it Snow, Let it Snow
Naps here have been a thing of the past for oh, gosh. Three months? Six? That’s one of those things that I really wish I’d written down when it happened, but I hung on to the hope that “My God, they have to sleep ONE OF THESE DAYS, right?” so long that it all got hazy and confused… Read More What Do We Want? Sleep! When Do We Want it? NEVER.
Yeah. THIS ONE. Look in those eyes and tell me that’s not the kind of trouble that grows up knowing how to bite people in the ass without them ever having a clue as to where it came from. She’s gonna be fun.
The fact that Trav and I dated for two years while he attended the New Mexico Military Institute and I never once set foot in the Chapel was something I, well…regretted is probably too strong a word. That it took my Aunt’s funeral for me to see this stained glass wall blazing behind the altar made me as sad… Read More Fire and Rain
Technically, it was twelve degrees outside when this shot was taken. It’s our second Santa-op attempt in as many weeks, and regardless of the amount of happy holiday materials we’ve paraded before her, Ashley has established a staunch no-Claus zone. I have a feeling this may turn out hilariously badly for her at next week’s… Read More Minus One
Even though our Multiples Club has organized a trip to the local pumpkin patch every year since they were born, combinations of illnesses and/or bad weather have kept us from taking Ashley, Sarah & Emma for the past 3 years. (Breaking News: Seattle in the fall is COLD AND DISGUSTING.) This year we finally made… Read More The Pumpkin Great
So. Hey. It’s October. And I was going to do that whole Blogathon thing again – but then I got a gig and built a website in 9 days. There hasn’t been a lot of sleep and my kids are pretty sick of the sight of me at a computer, but while this has probably… Read More Night Shift
