Meet Princess Peach

February 13, 2018

Thursday: Down to the Humane Society to pick up a turtle. I get this message from Mr Smith… which registers as a green light for dog ownership. This has been building for about a year, and there are a couple kids here who are extremely excited about it. Cute turtles […]

Hot Lava

February 7, 2018

Our lovely giant white tiles turned into lava this evening, just before dinner. No lives were lost because, fortunately, most of the family was already at the table, and the 4yo reminded us that parents had flying powers. Whew! Lucky us! Less-fortunately, the 4yo also informed me that for my flying powers to […]

2 moments

February 6, 2018

I’m only going to describe 2 moments here, so hopefully this doesn’t take 3 hours and 5,000 words. It’s me, though, so I make no promises. There’s a LOT of backstory for the first one.  Y’all know I love the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman like it’s nobody’s business. That’s […]

That Big Red Button

January 19, 2018

I have a great big giant invisible red button. Yes, it’s red AND invisible. This is pretend. I don’t like that it’s there. It’s not as sensitive a button as it used to be. Several things have to stack up in just the right order to set it off, but it’s not pretty […]

Things I didn’t regret

January 16, 2018

One more little blip about last Saturday. When the “crisis” was over, there were some things I noticed that were not on my “if I had just been blown to smithereens, I would have regretted” list. I didn’t regret seeing The Greatest Showman three times. Yup. True story. I didn’t regret the […]
