I cleaned all day – and my house is in shambles

What’s up with that???  Oh yeah, I’ve got kids. I was diligent today.  Made all three beds, did four loads of laundry.  Swept out all of the bedrooms, cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed the living room three times, cleaned the downstairs playroom, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher.  And yet, I look around – and my dining …

You’d think that I’d be good at this by now… but now that Julianna is mobile, I’ve got to relearn it all.  I also have to reteach Marc and Jessie and introduce Sam to the concept that anything, anytime, anywhere that Julianna could possibly reach – if you leave anything out, she’s going to get …

A night at my house

Sam had started sneezing and coughing mid-afternoon last night, so I was pretty sure that he was coming down with something.  Marc and I, while somehow miraculously managing to maintain a completely happy, loving relationship, rarely manage to sleep alone in the same bed.  Last night was no exception.  I had recorded an episode of …

I’m interesting too – or why being a SAHM is such a conversation killer

I went out to dinner with a big group of people the other night.  I knew a couple of them very well, a couple I knew by sight and some I’d never met before.  And I was the only SAHM mom in the bunch.  It was just odd… so much of the conversation seemed to …

Remember me?

I know – it’s been years since I’ve posted.  There’s been a lot going on – nothing of major, life altering import, but it’s been busy and hectic around here, and it’s hard to find time to check in and blog.  Even now, I’m typing with Julianna bouncing face down across my lap.  That’s her …
