My hand after Carpal Tunnel Release surgery

Friday I had my first major panic attack complete with cold sweats, racing heart rate and general freaking the hell out.  When I had my emergency induction with Cara back in '06, a nurse with about as much skill with a needle as a lobotomized polar bear on crack (LPBoC) shoved an IV into the side ...

I have lots of feels tonight, people so you're basically going to serve as my best-friend/therapist/sounding board/something. Just listen. Err...read. And if you're feeling all TL:DR, you can get to the main point by clicking here. This is a rather long, ranty, gif filled post of awesome but I know some of you can't handle ...

happy anniversary

Welp, yesterday was Tucker and my anniversary. I don't remember what year the blessed event occurred; I use Sophie's age (minus two one years) to keep up with the quantity of years. I figure if I remember the month and day, I'm doing pretty good. And normally I do. Except for this year. Correction on my math: Apparently I'm only supposed ...

Erupting Volcano

I'm hot. IT IS 85° IN MY HOUSE RIGHT NOW! Yes, I am sweating. Yes, Sophie the Wonder Pit Bull refuses to remove her geriatric self from the tile floor. Yes, everyone is at everyone else's throats. It is tons of fun up in here. I've been so proud of us for not turning the air conditioner on ...

NaNoWriMo 2012: Let's Write and Be Awesome

I've been sitting on almost 30,000 words of a book for the past year. I know I need to go back in and add some stuff to the beginning and I'm lazy and then have a tendency to edit because I feel I need to reread what I have written so I'm familiar with the ...

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

Everyone has their way of winding down from the day. Cara and Ollie like to freak the hell out for no reason cause they get punchy when they get tired so they wind down by driving us crazy. Sophie does this weird slurpy, licking thing and it's just...yeah. Sophie, stop that? I sit on the back ...

The Dog Didn’t Eat Cara’s Homework But She Might As Well Have

Filed Under: Life

Part of the "required gear" for kindergarten kids is a sign on their backpacks with their name, who is picking them up, make and color of car and the adult's phone number. I worked one up in Photoshop and had Tucker print off multiple versions we could change out if she was walking or if ...

Cara After School 8.28.12

We have officially made it through our first week of kindergarten and we're all in one piece. Life has gone on. None of us have been stumbling around like zombies in search of juicy brains. I'm just as surprised as you. Yesterday was the first day Cara was excited about school when I picked her up. Entire ...

Garden Update Bug Edition

Filed Under: Garden

The garden has become somewhat of an epic fail. Correction: what's doing awesome is REALLY doing awesome and what's sucking is REALLY sucking. The purple basil is something I'm proud of. I managed to raise one plant from seed and the second plant came from me pruning the first. I don't use this type in cooking--I have ...
