why so complicated?

October 29, 2009

just wondering….what do large families do for Christmas gift giving?  Just trying to draw names seems to be too complicated for us.  What the heck?

And, should everyone agree on a system or people just do what they want?  I’m ready to head out of the country to celebrate this year.  Less stress. 🙂

I’m just so excited to see U2 again.  That’s all I have to say.

Took a dive…

August 17, 2009

into the generation gap.  “H” asked if I had ever heard of Ann Arbor.

I said I was pretty sure it was a city in Michigan.

He then gave just a slight eye roll and said, “Mom, it’s a band.”

Mini smiled and told me to “go with it.”


alien or daughter?

August 4, 2009

Driving with mini the other day we were having a casual conversation about school.  She mentioned taking a logic class this year because it would look good when she applied for colleges.

She’s either growing up and realizing school isn’t where you go to catch up with all your friends OR she’s been cleverly replaced by an alien look a like.

I was proud of the thoughtfulness no matter who it was sitting beside me.

I’m so grateful for cousins.  Mini and H had a great time with the Texas clan this past week.  Tatiana will be there next week after a brief stint here with the fam.

Paul’s mom and dad put together a photo album for each of the girl cousins to remember this week for years to come.  What a great idea.

I missed mini.  We have one day before she heads to Nebraska for a week with my parents.  sigh.

Two Weeks

June 25, 2009

for two weeks I’ll be missing my mini-me as she visits Texas and Nebraska family all by her lonesome.  ugh.  She’s not suppose to grow up this fast.  She is such a joy to be around.  Paul’s and my family love to have her come visit and spend quality time together.  I just miss her so much while she’s gone. 😦

cleaning coffee…

April 22, 2009

from off of the ceiling.

Yeah, only me.  I can’t even blame my kids.  The cup dropped off the ironing board (ok – I knocked it off) and it landed right side up.  Whew, or so I thought.  The impact actually caused the coffee to leap straight into the air, hit the ceiling and mostly land back in the cup.  ugh.

Which brings me to my next complaint…who the heck invented the popcorn ceiling?
