So, I don’t really cook. Even with a recipe, things usually turn out not quite right. Edible, but probably not what the end product was supposed to taste like. But ya know what? A family of 4 is expensive to feed; especially when 3 of them are male and 2 of *those* are growing.

So, Daddy and I have talked about it and it’s been decided that I’m going to cook more. I have the approval to comb thru cookbooks and the internet and find stuff to cook. Daddy will buy what I out on the grocery list and according to him as long as we still grocery shop at Walmart, it’ll be cheaper than eating out most of the time.

It’s a good thing I have aprons!


Fun Stuff


Everyone loves vacation! And most people, including me, dream of weeks upon weeks of unending vacation time. I mean who likes to work? But one of my favorite things to do is to take just a day or two off during the work week.

I can spend time with myself since the Kiddos are in school and depending on the day of the week, Daddy might be asleep (he works nights). There’s no line at the nail place, Starbucks is relatively empty after 8:00 and movies are less crowded! Also, the yarn store…..on the weekends, *everyone* is there. During the week, it’s much less crowded and hours can be spent there if I want to. And sometimes I do – cause I adore the yarn store!

Today, daddy and I are having lunch with our Dear Friend. Tomorrow, Eldest Male has a mid morning scrimmage and we are going to watch. Huzzah for mid week vacations!!

And Life Marches On


Daddy has resumed chatting with his harem. (Technically not a true harem, since he doesn’t own them and they don’t live with us – more like a collection of women around the world that he chats with on varying levels). And I’m handling it much better this time around.

I can’t really say what changed. But I feel more centered and loved. Sexier and confident. *shrug*. I’m not sure that the why really matters. I mean, it matters to ME, but Daddy doesn’t really care why. He’s just glad that I’m handling it like good property should.

Mysterious new gig from a few months ago is no longer new but is *still* rather mysterious. It’s kinda fun!

School is fixing to start here and football practice has already started….. Which means that instead of being a hormonal teenager, Eldest Male is now a hormonal, exhausted and extremely surly teenager. This is the number one reason why I don’t like football.



My Eldest Spawn is 18 next weekend. My Youngest Spawn is 9 this weekend. Middle Spawn believes that at 16, he possesses the Wisdom of the Ages (I’m pretty sure I did too at that age). Daddy and I have been together 13 years this month.

Where did all the time go? It’s moving do fast!



I have a migraine. I would nod, but that would hurt my head. I don’t get them often and when I do, I generally run for the closet and stay there while occasionally asking someone to decapitate me.

Why am I blogging? A sane person might ask that. I’m not bad enough to stay home from work today – cause I still have color vision and can see from one eye. The eyes take turns cause they’re nice like that. And the pain is located just on the right side of my head.

For 2 days I’ve been battling this damn thing. I wish it would either:
1. Go away
2. Act like a normal migraine

That’s not so much to ask, right?
