Yeah, we are a little weird.

I must preface this by saying I adore my boys!!!  They are my world but they are strange little beings.

There is nothing like having a visitor to your home to notice and shine a light on the absurdity of your family’s life.  I am weird and I know my hubby is a little weird.  Heck, we probably wouldn’t have hooked up if we weren’t both weird.  Odds are we would have somewhat weird offspring (unlike supermodels who mate – their kids tend to be non-supermodelish, “weird” seems to be passed on rather easily).  I just forget how weird we are until there is a witness to the insanity and I find myself having to explain what just happened.  Oddly enough, words fail me and I usually end up just saying, “Yeah, we are a little weird.” (more…)

I am okay, but am I “good”? Social experiment #1.


I have been thinking a lot about what it means to be a good person.  I know the general consensus is that a good person keeps out of trouble and manages to stay out of jail.  This person does not beat people or steal etc. and can hold down a job and feed his or her family. Based on these definitions, I think I can safely say that I am a “good” person. (more…)

Hey, I should be lazy.

I guess I fooled myself again.  I got all excited and giddy thinking about the approaching summer season.  Oooh, I could just feel the sweet summer breezes.  Never mind that I live in Texas where the temperature hovers in the high 90’s and low 100’s. Every year I fall for the hype that summer is supposed to be lazy and carefree.  Now that it is here, shouldn’t I be sipping lemonade while swinging in my hammock all afternoon instead of running around in a frenzy?  Well, news flash!  I am not living a carefree summer.  Heck, I don’t even have a hammock.  If I did, it would probably still be in the box because I have no time to put anything together, much less use it.

Don’t ask me that.

Do I have to answer every question that is directed at me?  Is it rude to not answer questions even if to answer would be no big deal?  I ask because it seems like so many people feel free to ask just about anything these days.  I am not talking about friends and family, I am talking about people I see in line at the store, people ringing up my purchases, and people at work who I don’t even pretend to like.  I am getting rather tired of it so I have compiled the following list for reference in case any one of those people happen to be reading this!  Please, don’t ask me the following things: (more…)

Blood, Sweat, and Tears

Summer is in full swing and the juices are flowing at my crazy house.  When I mean juices, I mean the stuff that oozes from my boys after a long day outside with other boys.  The boys are either falling and scraping or cutting something, hence the blood.  It is hot and the are just dripping with sweat 24/7 here in Texas, and it wouldn’t be a normal day if someone didn’t cry (sometimes that someone is me).

Wow! A girl in the house.

I had the pleasure of having my niece, Brooke, visit me for a couple of days this week.  She is a beautiful 11-year-old. She has big blue eyes and long, thick blonde hair.  Over the last few months she has really changed into a young lady.  She dresses impeccably with the appropriate accessories and hairstyle.  When she visited, I noticed she was wearing lip gloss and glitter lotion.  She even asked me for a razor!  I don’t remember shaving at that age but who knows!  That was a LONG time ago.
