I love this post, Jon... I need to bronze it for my girls. Reminds me that you haven't dropped any posts off at Ten to Twenty lately, either... ;)

I think I finally snapped. Or maybe, I'm just a little tired of trying to be the vigilante mom who gets stuck in traffic while some moron parent blatantly ignores the "No Left Turn" sign. I'm sure my poor kids... Continue reading

I know :( I'm really struggling with the fact that they're halfway out of the house. Of course, the fact that they now have no college fund will probably keep them here longer, so maybe I *am okay!

I'm not sure where I was.. perhaps buying a baby shower gift (don't get too many of those invites anymore) or maybe even a birthday present. But as I was walking thru the aisles of "little" toys and clothes, it... Continue reading

I'm with you.. it's crazy the "expectations" that they have. I remember wanting a lot in middle school but good God not like this.

Anyone who has been to my house and seen M's room, knows that she isn't exactly a housekeeper in the making. No matter how I beg, plead, threaten or bribe, she just will not keep her room in any resemblance... Continue reading

I have friends who I swear live by that rule. Really? BBO? So obnoxious. It's better to accept and THEN if a bbo came along, bail with some eloquent excuse.

Who? What? Well, naturally celebrity abuse would lead to cemetery abuse.. because all celebrities end up in the cemetery, right? One of my other faves was Princess Diana's.. of course I was all defensive because PD didn't die from these means!! Then I read her "tombstone" and couldn't decipher what they wrote but it boiled down to a long trail of gibberish that resulted in Di dying.
Don't you love driving around at Halloween time? The scary houses... funny giant cats, ghosts and goblins?! They're great! I have also always loved taking the 2 younger girls to their elementary school where the school grounds are covered in... Continue reading

You never know exactly when it happens. It just does. From the day she started school, your daughter has always had a big circle of friends and plenty of play dates. Then, one day it just seems that she doesn’t... Continue reading

M went to a birthday party in PA where a parent did that... I thought my friend was going to lose her mind. There are sadly, too many instances where parents do these things. I wish I could say they were clueless but we all know that in most instances, they just don't care.

Is unfortunately, usually, their parents. One of the things that I noticed pretty quickly when we moved back to this area is that in the South people tend to live by the rule of "do as I say, not as... Continue reading

Oh Kelly.. Now I really feel like I'm feeding her to the wolves.. :(
Interesting that I stumbled upon this article today as it was a discussion in our car on the way to school this morning. We still don't know how to protect kids in cars, poll says We know that the rule... Continue reading

I take advantage of it and make all the things that he hates but the girls LOVE. For instance, tonight's request was Chipped Beef Gravy. Steve wouldn't be caught dead eating it so we have to wait til he's gone...... Continue reading

Having spent several years in an industry that served those in the disaster recovery and business continuity community, this is a really great article Jon. How cool is it that a little breakfast nook has a plan so ironclad that it can rock with the big boys like HD and WM. Just goes to show you don't have to be "fancy" to be a big player.

Another moment that I can't let pass without pointing it out! This one jumped out at me because anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Dolly Parton (yes.. I really do) and I don't know how Dolly would feel... Continue reading

Now see.. I should have sent her every year and I could have written my own book. Of course, I'd have to put the picture in there that she drew that showed her happily sitting at the campfire just for contradiction.
I have never suffered from PMS. Ever. Until about 2 years ago. Then, seemingly overnight I became a wicked, nasty person at least once a month. How is it that I managed to escape my entire life without suffering from... Continue reading
