Fall TV Round-Up: A Case of the Thursdays

Back in my day–oh, so long ago–Thursday nights were “Must See TV” nights. People tuned in by the gazillions to see if Ross and Rachel would ever get together. They pined for the familiar setting of the Central Perk ....more

Fall TV Round-Up: Wednesday (It’s just another whiny Wednesday)

Well, now that I have the tune to “Manic Monday” stuck in my head, I’m finding it difficult to focus on my post of the day. Really, fall TV should be every week–just so I have an excuse/motivation to write every day. It’s pretty stinking hot here, so I’ll try to type with as little movement as possible to try to keep cool….or perhaps I should write this with my feet in the baby swimming pool? ...more

Fall TV Round-Up: Tuesday Edition (Yee haw!)

Howdy, folks. I hope y’all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend! I started out my work week with a computer that went kaput ....more

Fall TV Round-Up: Monday Edition (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying about the Week and Instead Just DVR Some Shows)

What’s Up with me: summer 2013 edition

I’ve had a busy summer—filled with highs and lows. I was able to go back to the Midwest and visit my family and watching my daughter play with her cousins on my dad’s farm was definitely a high point. It was so amazing to see her chubby little legs carry her around the immense yard ....more

Taking the first steps…

Once again, life has been busy and I know this post has been a week in coming. In fact, it may not have even come at all; but I talked to my mom on the phone last night and she asked when I was going to post pictures of my front room. I was called out and now I’m posting my clutter ....more

I did it! (kinda)

Well, I think I may have accomplished my goal. Maybe, sort of. Last week, I said I wanted to write a blog post every week day for a week–totaling five entries. Somehow I both accomplished and didn’t accomplish this.   I know I missed a day writing a post. That much is glaringly obvious to me. However, if my calculations are correct (and they are because I have five fingers to count on), this will be my fifth post ...more
