Coming to Terms

I’m going to come right out and say that some people that might read this post may not relate and some might even be put off by it. Some of the things I’m about to share are things that I’ve always felt I’m in the minority in how I feel and that many people (women …

Blog Hiatus

This is the longest I’ve gone between blog posts in over four years, since I started blogging sometime in 2007. I used to always find time to write, even if just once a week, often so I could collect and package my thoughts, but also so I wouldn’t forget all the moments that come and …

Making It Work

It’s the key to a fulfilled life, and I’m not saying I have it figured out, but we’re on track to get it done. We’ve figured out what our priorities are, and we stick to them. And with that, there is a lot of crap that just doesn’t get done (like a pristine house). Maybe …

My Girlfriend

She loves Mickey Mouse, but especially Goofy. I love how she cracks up at his clumsy attempts to remember how to say “Mousketools,” he can never get it right! And despite my best efforts to instill some Tomboy in her, she loves all things princess more and more every day. She comes home and changes …

Things We Don’t Suck At

Lots has happened, and I haven’t documented any of it on any of my blogs, and I am okay with this. Rewinding, I suppose the oldest significant thing I remember from a …

What is Love?

SAP ALERT!!! This might get mushy. Valentine’s Day is soon upon us and luckily Ronnie and I both agree it’s a pretty worthless holiday. Other than being a fun holiday for Skyler to have a party at preschool and exchange fun cards for her classmates, we won’t make a big deal out of it. We …

Difficult Conversations

They are happening frequently with Skyler lately. She is so observant and curious and doesn’t miss a thing. In car rides to and from work/school, I turn on mindless music out of habit. The lyrics have no meaning to me – I don’t even know them or pay attention, I just hear a rhythm in …

100 Things

My head is swimming, mostly good things. I could probably write a post for each of them, but I don’t have time. So tonight is one of those disjointed glimpses of my reality. Bullet points & all: – I am a darn good cook. I didn’t know that until recently, but it’s true. I’m having …
