(StatePoint) With the holiday cooking season upon us, more Americans are worried about becoming sick of an annoying relative than they are of getting sick from the food on the table. But a new survey indicates that their relatives should be the least of their concerns, as more than one in five Americans (22 percent) […]
Ahhh, the Holidays…… The Thanksgiving turkey comes out of the oven golden brown, with an enticing aroma that fills the entire house. All the china is in pristine condition and not a single piece in the set is missing. The family is gathered for holiday pictures, the children are poised perfectly; hands to themselves, not […]
I know, I know. It’s Valentine’s Day. I just thought I’d take a moment to remind you of this post I did a year ago today. It’s easier than typing it out again, and I think I said it pretty good the first time. :) Happy Singles Awareness Day AND Happy Valentine’s Day!
Two of the most common new year resolutions have to do with health and finances. Many people have weight loss as a number one resolution. I’ve never been big on making my own new year resolutions. I’m not even sure why. Fear of failure is probably the biggest reason. That’s the same reason I don’t […]
I’m not sure what brought up the subject, but last night Andrew started talking about Christmas and Santa Claus. He looked at me kind of confused and said some people say Santa Claus isn’t real. I thought I was going to cry. I am not ready for him to stop believing in Santa Claus. I’m […]
I’m not a big prankster, but Andrew learned about April Fool’s Day at school yesterday and spent most of last night letting me know he couldn’t wait until today because he was going to play pranks on me. It never dawned on me until a half hour before school let out that I should come […]
Yesterday somehow I came across some information on Singles Awareness Day. Basically this is a day somebody made up to coincide with Valentine’s Day as an alternative for those of us who are not romantically involved. I laughed about it. Showed it to my friends. Made a big deal about it. And wished everybody over […]
Christmas in California I got home from California Wednesday night. We had a great time! I’m so glad we were able to go. Andrew barely left my mom’s side the whole time. It was as good for him as it was her. It was good seeing my grandparents again. I always have a hard time […]
Dear Santa, I’ve been a good mom all year. I’ve fed, cleaned and cuddled my children on demand, visited the doctor’s office more than my doctor and sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground. I was hoping you could spread my list out over […]
Andrew and I went to the mall last Saturday, and he sat on Santa’s lap. Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas and Andrew wouldn’t tell him. So Santa said, “Will you leave me a note?” Andrew said yes. LOL He’s such a nut. Here he is with Santa. Merry Christmas!
