XX

Today, Big Daddy and I have been married for twenty years. That is a crazy sentence. I’m going to write it again. Today, Big Daddy and I have been married for twenty years. In the time leading up to today, I’ve thought about what I’d write here because I have tended to write here when […]

People, let me tell you ’bout my best pen!

Let’s lay it all down. I love stationary. I always have. No kid really looks forward to the end of summer, but when a whole paper grocery bag of brand new school supplies were coming my way, I maybe didn’t mind so much. I remember being 8 and falling in love with a particular perforated […]

Muscle Memory

Five below is selling cat’s cradle strings. In rainbow colors, of course. When the Princess and I went to pick up a few things for our upcoming beach vacation they were at the register and, of course, I impulse purchased one. A few years ago the Princess and I tried to teach the girl scout […]

If I could re-write our wedding vows and present them to myself to say to you 19 years ago, they’d look like this: I, Jamie, take you, Big Daddy, to be my husband. To have and hold on to as tight as possible and to freak you out a little bit when I ask you […]

Happy July, Ya’ll!

When you last heard from me, we were in depths of snow days with April looming ahead. In the past three months, Big Daddy has had an employment change, the Princess graduated high school (I know. Our baby!), Littlebit finished fifth grade with all A’s and Baby Bee managed to hit the honor roll for […]

And then it snowed–AND the menu plan

We had our millionth and eight snow day last week. This time, it was legit. The snow fell fast and deep and heavy and Big Daddy drove me to therapy and we were both surprised with how bad the roads were. Big Daddy has given up clearing the driveway, which is fine for him but […]

Easy Instant Pot Corned Beef (no cabbage)

Apparently it’s St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow? No, I know that it’s St Patrick’s day tomorrow.  Admittedly, we aren’t into St. Patrick’s day very much.  We’re not really Irish.  I don’t like being packed into a bar with a thousand of my not so closest friends. But, one thing we all get behind is a good […]

Binge Watch Post Mortem-The Mortified Guide

One criticism I see about Netflix is complaints that they aren’t getting as much “good movies” these days.    That could be true.  We’ve been long time subscribers (back when basically everything was on Netflix on the roku because they hadn’t hammered out those rights yet).  In any case, in my opinion, whether or not Netflix […]

Reducing Screen time–and the menu plan!

I have a love/hate relationship with my iphone. I love that little monster like woah.  I love having the world at my fingers.  Literally.  There’s no song I can’t listen to, no book I can’t read, no directions I can’t find.  As someone who loves information, there’s something magical about having all of time and […]

These Kids Today

I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. I do that sometimes. Sometimes I’m too far in my feelings for something to make sense. Sometimes I’m trying to describe a bunch of feelings that you can’t easily put words to. Sometimes, I’m not sure if I’m ready to post something I know could be […]
