Where in I confess to…….

Nate: Hey mom, remember that Africa project where I have to make food that I told you about? Can you do that tonight, it’s due tomorrow? Uh, YOUR project that YOU were supposed to look up a recipe for, and are supposed to make it yourself? Nate: Yeah, that one. The same one that you […]

Identity Disaster

I have this weird inability to obtain a normal I.D. picture. It’s like all the atoms and molecules that make up my being get all confused at the flash of light omitted by the DMV (or where ever I may be) camera and things, unnatural things, or just down right weird phenomena happen. I actually […]

Indignities of the Male Kind

I like to pull the “I’ve had a baby so suck it up,” card a lot with Matt. Basically, half the time it’s not serious and he’s over reacting, and the other he tends to get hurt/sick at really annoying times. Like getting his appendix taken out 2 days before our daughter’s huge class birthday […]

Of all the Gin Joints in the World {No Ones Getting Laid}

When you go to New Orleans there are things that you just do. Visit Bourbon Street, check. Walk the French Quarter, double check.

Soap, Water, and Irrational Thoughts

My dad used to like to tell this joke about a man and his wife. They had a dinner party and at the end of the meal guest offered to help clean up. The man said “Naw, soap and water’ll get it done..” Another guest chimed in saying there were quite a few dishes, wouldn’t […]

Potato, Potato, French Fry

My mind was completely blown over the weekend. Nate started 6th grade, middle school, this fall. Everyone kept making a big deal about it. Everyone kept asking “how does it feel?” And “are you going to be sad?” I kept saying no, I was just sad he was at a different school than Reese and […]
