Winter . . . Is Here.

Happy New Year! More than ever, The Holidays (being the entire stretch of Thanksgiving through New Years) . . . The Holidays are nothing if not the Survival of the Fittest. . . . And I am not the fittest. But I (we) managed to limp and drag myself through, anyway. Minion Update: Minion is […]

I Just Lost My Mind

Coco is not the brightest bulb of a dog, but she IS house-trained. (And she possesses a bladder of steel.  If she needed to, she could probably deal with a single outing every 14 hours or so.) (Lest you be too quick to cheer at that, though . . . she can wait all day. […]

Little Minion Charming

A funny little Minion story. This weekend we went down to visit Garm and PopPop. (It had been a while since our last visit.) Well, you know how I love Sephora, and it just so happened that I had bought something online that hadn’t been spectacular, but I was procrastinating shipping it back b/c that […]

Minion Goes to a Wedding

  My cousin got married last weekend.  We were the worst wedding guests. I was actually quite on top of things . . . Minion had stayed overnight at GrannyB’s, and she dropped him off about two hours before go-time.  I’d already checked driving times via the Googles, and I was calling out our time […]

We All Scream for Ice Cream

My voice lessons are still going strong. Nothing remarkable about that, really.  Most weeks see SOME improvement somewhere, but like most things it is also a slow process. I use my microphone and a few bits of recording equipment to get some outside perspective of how I sound.   Obviously this is almost always a […]

Coughing Fit

While unpacking from our trips, I had a coughing fit. It was that lovely sort of ladylike coughing fit which caused me to fear that I would open my eyes after the current cough and see my very lungs on the floor in front of me. I survived, though . . . (Drama-free Pixy) and […]

Whirlwind Week

We had a very busy week leading up to the Memorial Day holiday. There were doctor appointments, beauty appointments, Knobby felt like going for multi-hour shopping trips that left us arriving home worn out (Shopping is hard, yo.), I had my shattered crown taken off and replaced with the temporary new crown, Knobby got a […]

TGI Everyday

Oh, Friday. You seem like you would be the old joyous Friday I once knew . . . but when you’re a housewife mom, and your husband works from home . . . the everyday tends to be . . . every day. Minion won’t sleep any longer.  Or demand less attention.  The house won’t […]

Spring Snow and the Little Stinker

The warm weather and open windows was a fluke. The past few days have leapt down into the 30s and 40s. Last night we went to Target to pick up some milk for Minion, and lo and behold, it was snowing.   Dogwoods in the snow.  That wind was fierce, too. Minion sure does know […]
