Twenty Years Ago – A Look Back

While searching for some photos to add to a new collage frame the other day, I ran across this old photo. Calling it “old” is strange — I call photos old when I refer to my Grandparents, or my cousins and I when were little kids. This photo though, is a photo that just doesn’t […]

Random thoughts from me – Pie and hearts and thankfulness

I saw my daughter’s heart today. Well not literally. Pie had an EKG and an echo cardiogram this morning. Last Monday, out the clear blue, she fainted during gym class. She said she just felt weird and then everything went black and down she went. This is not normal people! Definitely NOT the call you […]

Random thoughts about my Christmas Tree – {almost} Wordless Wednesday

Sorry I feel wordy today, skip to the pics if you just want {wordlesss}. Our tree is up. I remembered to buy candy canes before Christmas Eve this year, go me! For some strange reason I keep thinking the tree is a heater. I randomly get up and go stand by it ¬†several times a […]

My hubby’s personal secretary

My hubby, Super Genius, is a small business owner. He is really good at his general contractor job and I admire the way he can work with his clients to make sure they’re satisfied with the work that he does for them. Being a business owner also means that you have a ton of paper […]

Random Ramblings from Me – games & laundry

Hello strangers! December and January seem to be my hibernation months! I’ve been such a slacker lately with both the blog and life. It’s starting to catch up with me since I haven’t even been to Jazzercise since the beginning of December, I miss it… but it’s hard to get back into the swing of […]

I am a __________! Fill in the blank

At Jazzercise class my instructor, Ronda, often stops to tell a short anecdote, joke, thought or event in between the aerobic portion and strength training portion of class while we’re stretching. This morning she talked about something that happened during a yoga class she’s taking. Her yoga instructor likes to end each class with a […]

My itty bitty tiny kitchen

When we moved to this rental almost five years ago (has it been THAT long!) I thought the layout was good. Looking back now I honestly don’t know what I was thinking, besides the fact that we had to move, because the layout stinks! My biggest gripe is the kitchen, if you can even call […]

Getting back into the swing of things

Guess what I’m doing? Typing on my NEW computer!! Woot! Super Genius surprised me on Tuesday when he came home from work with the computer I’ve been drooling over! He got a great deal on a HP Pavilion bundle. This baby is about 100x the computer that our old beast was! He also brought home […]

Hello my abandoned blog, it’s me

Life without a computer is very weird. Weird in a not-so-good way most of the time. Weird as in boring as hell. Or, weird as in I am bored out of my skull. I do find that I have lots of time for other things that I’d rather not be doing… like laundry and cleaning […]

Update and a couple of winners!

My computer is still down. the repair shop couldn’t do anything so a friend of ours took it in to work to have a friend of his look at it and see if he can get any of my data off of it. Keeping my hopes up! After we find out if anything can be […]

What’s going on with me? Battle of the Fleas!

Whew!! I had some bloggy plans today but things didn’t work out that way. Instead I spent my day cleaning. I vacuumed EVERYTHING – twice – nooks , crannies and all. Mopped, dusted some, threw about 75 magazines out into the recycle bin, really when am I ever going to look at them again? They […]

Gorgeous pink sunset and an old fashioned yard sale treasure

After a weird weather day a cool and welcome breeze started drifting in. Around 9pm the sky turned a gorgeous shade of pinkish orange and as Pie exclaimed, while running around the yard with her face turned heavenward, “It was like a fairy land” outside! A perfect twilight I would think (Pie thought it was […]
