Ollie Broke Himself. Kind Of.

Filed Under: Gifs, Life
Once it was all done, Ollie wanted a picture taken so he could look at his "snitches."

Before Tucker left, he joked about having to spend a week fixing all the stuff the kids and I broke while he was gone. Bet he wasn't expecting me to break a kid. OK. So I didn't break Ollie. Ollie broke himself. Well...I guess the chair broke Ollie but Ollie caused it so it's his fault. Right? You know ...

Single Mom for a Bit

Filed Under: Gifs, Life

Tucker sets sail on a jet plane today for places far away. I know I got off easy when I was a Navy wife. Tucker was never deployed and the longest I was away from him--other than Boot--was when he did an AT in Key West for two weeks; I was a very lucky military wife. Does that mean ...

I Don’t Know What To Title This Other Than Receptionists at Shrinks’ Offices Should Have a Sense of Humor

Filed Under: Gifs, Mental Health

I discovered yesterday that I had overlapping appointments with my counselor and my shrink for today. Called and got the shrink rescheduled for a later time.

Note from Tooth Fairy

Tuesday I picked Cara up from school minus a front tooth. She had pulled it in the bathroom--and didn't even cry--and then promptly lost the thing. This put Tucker and me in a spot since we didn't have a tooth for the "Tooth Fairy" to retrieve and then replace with money. Wednesday was Cara's class's book fair day. ...

Get Happy and Room Cleaning Hipsters

This is what happens when we send the kids to clean their rooms and the playroom: they put on strange outfits and demand to have their pictures taken. Though they look cute and ridiculous, they suck at picking up. Between Tucker and me, I bet we've made at least fifteen trips back to their areas. Each time ...

Matron's Diary

I'm not sure how much this counts as a "diary entry" as much as it's kind of a news/what's been happening kind of thing. I have a job. I don't remember if I announced over here that Josh from Kmart Gamer fame asked me to be the Editor in Chief for his new startup which we're currently calling Project ...

How I Tell If Tucker’s Mad At Me

Filed Under: Life
flying toilet

Me: Are you mad at me? Tucker: {long pause} No. No, why? Me: The toilet seat is up. When you're mad at me you leave the toilet seat up. Tucker: I'm not mad at you! Me: I can't fix it if I don't know why you're mad at me. Tucker: ♪ I'm gonna kick you in the shins... ♪
