Livvy and the Spaghetti Monster

January 24, 2012

The other day, I prepared spaghetti for dinner. As I was waiting for the big stockpot of water to boil, I wrested open the box of “Thin Spaghetti” and placed it on the counter. Being a mom, I then rushed off to accomplish a billion other jobs in the meantime. A minute or two later, […]

Whole Bunch of Turkeys Will Be There

October 22, 2011

Spotted at my local Walmart: Stuffed behind a HUGE display and assortment of stupid Halloween crap (I hate Halloween), the Thanksgiving stuff barely gets any notice. But I saw these turkey hats and nearly keeled over with laughter. The hats play “Turkey in the Straw.” WHAT KIND of looney family would wear a TURKEY HAT?!?!? […]

After weeks of empty promises, I finally made good on my word and took the kids out for a day trip. We endured 2 hours in crazy freeway traffic through our capitol city (Albany, NY) to visit the Olana Historic Site in Hudson, NY, and have a nice lunch along the banks of the Hudson […]

I’m back! I told you I needed a vacation. On very short notice (but in the works for the past ten years), I finally got to visit my brother in Virginia. It was WONDERFUL!!! Oh, it is so good to be back home again (especially after a 10 hour drive, ugh), but we were so […]

Look what we discovered crawling around our yard after the flood. It was a nice surprise. Today’s local news stories are loaded with stories about the yesterday’s flooding. Some folks even found a fish in their yard. I guess the 9 inches of rain we’ve received for the month of April was too much for […]

Yeah, I’m still here. Posts across all my blogs have been slim. Well, more precisely, non-existent! I haven’t had any free time lately. I have a huge scroll of “Things to Do” on my desk, getting longer and longer by the day. THANK YOU to all you wonderful people who supported my daughter and I […]

I got one! I got a Hyundai Sonata!! Isn’t she a beauty?!?! Doesn’t it look like something out of an old James Bond movie?!   We’ve been searching for a new vehicle for about 6 weeks now. It has been difficult finding one in our price range for low mileage… and honestly, the mileage on […]
