Topsy Turvy Day.

We’re reaching the end of the first week of TheBoy’s job. And I think the one having the hardest time dealing with the change is me! The kids are completely fine waiting for their dad to come home from work. They see him in the morning, send him off on his day… and run out

Drizzle, LEGO and Star Wars.

It’s a rainy day here in SoCal. Which means that it isn’t actually raining. It’s been drizzling most of the day, heavily enough to ensure that the roads (and my windshield) stay wet, but not enough that you need an umbrella. Which is why I was surprised when on the way home I saw a

The Wired Mom: Facebook and Privacy

Yet again, on Facebook, there’s a slew of copy/paste statuses claiming to protect your privacy. It seems to happen about once a year, and out of the 300+ people I follow, I wind up seeing a fair amount of these. This time, this is the post that’s going around: In response to the new Facebook

New pants. And dinner out.

Last night, on the eve of TheBoy’s first day at his new job (which means, yes, today’s his first day), we went out to celebrate. And to shop. You see, I’ve been after TheBoy to buy a new pair of pants for the last few months. For the most part, we don’t buy new clothes

Mistakes I’ve Made: The Wee Hours of the Morning

We had a lovely Thanksgiving here. The food was ready on time, everything was warm… and a lovely time was had by all! Only I made the mistake of eating all the side dishes, two of which had dairy in them. Usually I (TMI territory here) wind up with cramps and other urgent type digestive

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been a wee bit out of it this week. Sorry for the lack of posts. Last year was a success when it came to Thanksgiving, so far as allergies went. I cooked the day before, making the Little Kidlet’s meal. So we’re repeating that. Right now I’m roasting a turkey breast (which doesn’t seem

This week is a blur.

I know- I said I’d blog about the party… but that was part of the problem. This weekend was a sprint to get ready for the party, and then afterwards, the Little Kidlet got sick. A common cold for my uncommon child. So my week’s been spent running around, taking care of a sick kid…

Can we all just stop being jerks?

I was going to blog about my boys’ birthday party, but I haven’t collaged the pictures yet. So, that’ll be tomorrow. My facebook feed is still full of people bitter that Romney wasn’t elected, spreading memes about what a horrible person Obama is. I’m slowly unfriending the people who don’t seem to care that these

Keurig, I don’t like your ads.

I should say up front that I like Keurig. My parents have a couple (my dad uses one at work) and we used it over Christmas. Everyone enjoyed getting to have what they wanted- from my tea to particular blends of coffee. And yes, my eco friendly parents have the reusable cups that they use

Wardrobe Malfunctions. (No, not that kind)

In looking over my new Instagram profile, I wouldn’t blame the internet for coming to two conclusions: 1. I only have one cardigan, and I wear it every day. 2. I only own three tshirts, but I wear the Star Wars shirt all the time. I have two cardigans, but I misplaced my black one
