Stifling Heat, Laundry Flood, and Twitter Fun

Three-day weekends always throw me for a loop, because I keep forgetting what day it actually is.  Today happens to be the last Tuesday of May – can’t believe this year is already closing in on the halfway point. Anyone do any cookouts yesterday for Memorial Day?  We limited ourselves to just burgers on the…

Field Trip Fun-ish, Future Nagging Guest Blogger, Angry Birds Take On Stonehenge

Is it already the next-to-the-last Tuesday of May?  I really need to learn the art of not blinking, because with each blink, time passes by way too fast.  This is also the second-to-the-last Tuesday of Princess Nagger’s school year – today she has the exciting field trip to… wait for it… the local township office….

Mother’s Day Snap-Happy, Network Upfront Disappointments and Mindless TV, Non-Natural Aubrey O’Day, The Hunger Games Enjoyment

Did you all have a good weekend?  More specifically, did all you mothers have a happy Mother’s Day?  The hubby’s still in training on the whole Mother’s Day aspect (I know, 9 years and counting) – he still doesn’t understand why he should make that day special since I’m not his mother.  The fact that I’m…

Princess Nagger really has the Hunger Games bug.  First, she wants to have a Hunger Games themed birthday party this year, complete with some sort of bow-and-arrow event in the backyard.  She’s also trying to decide if she wants to dress up as Katniss or an actual Mocking Jay for Halloween this year.  All I…

May Day Weather and Spicy Racks

Happy May Day…  Or whatever salutation is appropriate for this first day of May.  When we were kids, we used to make paper cone vases out of construction paper and fill them with flowers (from my mother’s garden, naturally) then leave them in various neighbors front doorknobs, ring the bell and run away.  Does anyone…

Scramble Brainy Friends, Dandelion Volcano, Obsessive Song Search…The Usual Mishmash

I tend to have an advanced vocabulary, as evidenced by the plethora of verbiage that tends to spew forth from my mouth.  But I suck at word games.  At least that’s what I’ve discovered after the sovereign Elle from Blue Monkey Butt and the inimitable Impulsive Addict have proven after they’ve gotten me hooked on…

Time Flies, Mother Nature’s Hot Flash, Princess Nagger’s Final Words

I don’t know about you, but it seems the weeks are flying by faster and faster.  Shut up, I heard one of you say I’m just getting old.  Just because they say time flies by faster when you get older doesn’t mean we’re getting old, right?  Tell me I’m right.  Please. So Mother Nature is…
