What’s My Motivation?

Filed Under: Life

I'm probably the only person who's going to find this ironic but I'm writing about my lack of motivation. I've been up since 6:30 or 7am. I've had my laptop either in my lap or close by the whole time and I've written eleven words for Sims 3 Gamer. And it's not like what I'm writing about is ...

Happy 200, Charles Tanqueray

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Recipes

As many of you guys know, I used to write a Spirits blog for b5Media and, well, now I don't. But that doesn't mean I have quit loving awesome drinks and that also doesn't mean I have stopped receiving information from my Spirits contacts. Case in point: did you know March is the month of Charles Tanqueray's birth. Yeah. That ...

Cara’s First Chapter Book

Filed Under: Life

Cara and I started on her first "chapter book" last night. I just got in this book to review called The Lost Children [affiliate link] and Cara latched onto the book like a leech on an armpit. She quickly informed me that I was going to read the book to her at bedtime. In fact, she ...

Political Fairness is All I Want

Filed Under: Uncategorized

My general rule with regards to writing is if I can not get a theme or idea out of my head then I need to write it down. Fairness in politics has been on my mind a lot here recently. Since I'm on my laptop for the majority of the day and TweetDeck is almost always running, ...

Weird but Cute Kids

Filed Under: Life

My kids are weird. And yes, I am stating the obvious...especially when you take into account these pictures. They got these "glasses" at my friend Alana's son's birthday party and while I'm pretty sure they've long since been thrown away, for a good three hours, those glasses were the coolest things my kids had ever seen. They put ...

The Mom Dance

Filed Under: Uncategorized

If you came to our apartment today - and I don't suggest you do that since I'm still in my pjs - you'd see a towel on the top of every door. It's not that we lack towel racks...it's that we have children who refuse to leave their doors open. And putting a towel over the door requires ...

Two Videos More Interesting Than Me

Filed Under: Life, Tech/Videos/Video Games

Nothing new has really happened around here. I stayed off of the internet for the most part this weekend - I even took a break from Sims3Gamer.com. With all of the politicking that was going on, I just didn't want to listen to it. We talk about politics enough around here as it is without having to ...

Sleep Already, Toddler!

Filed Under: Life

Oliver has been doing this weird thing where he wakes up around 3am and then screams bloody freakin' murder until someone comes and gets him out of his room. Granted, I realize we've conditioned him to do this since we have repeatedly followed the same routine of blindly stumbling into his room in the dark and ...

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Filed Under: Life

Happy Birthday, Jessica! And if you're not Jessica then don't worry about that part. It's also Saint Patrick's Day. I'm not Irish and I know next to nothing about the sainted Patrick other than he was Irish...and a saint. And something about wearing green and drinking green beer. Oh. And making rivers green. Sounds like my kind ...

Question of the Day: Where’s the Other Shoe

Filed Under: Life

I was a girl about town today because of a dentist appointment and during my journey, at four different stop lights, I saw four different single shoes. These weren't sequential stoplights like someone had extra shoes in their car that just had to be thrown out at each red light they hit. Random stoplights and random ...

American Culture is to Blame for Bad Schools

Filed Under: Life, School
Chalkboard

Education and learning are two things we value in this household. We also value things like bacon, really good coffee and hours and hours of sleep but believe that last one is kind of like a leprechaun - mythical. Sunday morning was a lazy morning. We had planned on getting random groceries and then going to the creek/park ...

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

Filed Under: Life

You know that part in Snow White where the EVIL Stepmother is all like, "Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who's the fairest one of all?" Remember that part? Cara has her own version. And it sounds like she's asking "Who's the weirdest one of all?" Though it would be a tough contest in this household, I'm going to ...
