Pump Yourself Up

Yes, we know it’s a giant petri dish, Pump It Up. They have one in almost every city. Maybe it goes by a different name in yours. There are HUGE, inflatable slides and obstacle courses. It’s fun, but the pain that comes with it is as bad as paint ball. The bruises still create mounds and welts, black, red and blue to match the décor. ...more

Ten

Dear Max,If I were to say I never thought this day would come, it would not sound the way I wanted it to. I never thought anything awful would happen and you would never turn ten, but I guess I just never thought ahead to what would inevitably happen....more

The After

Today is the after day of my wonderful birthday and it was an awesome birth"day".  The morning started with tons of Facebook birthday wishes and a card from The Hubby.  A bit of work at the office and then I was off to go with B to her doctor appointment.  Listening to the heartbeat of our little granddaughter was my birthday present from B and I couldn't have been more thrilled.  That was a quick visit and then home to wait for Sis.  We were going to have lunch....more

My Golden Year

According to They Hubby today I have hit My Golden Year today.  I was born, 56 years ago today, so that means my birth year was 1956.  I wonder what that means exactly, and I have no idea, but It find it interesting. It is going to be a bit of a busy birthday day week.  Last night we kicked off the celebration but eating fish tacos at Full Moon Cafe.  I love those things....more

Hoo boy. I'm turning 40 in 4 days!

It's true. This Saturday I officially take my first step onto... The Hill! My kids are insanely excited and have been secretly plotting things all week, sneaking around the house, making something in the home office, etc. Yesterday they even interviewed me and asked me about my favorite movie, video game, TV show, Muppet, book, etc. I have no clue what they're planning, but it should be good.I'm not too worried about the age thing actually. In fact, I've never been happier or more comfortable with just about every facet of my life, as I am right now. ...more
