Cousins

We went to my mom and Dad’s last night. They live in a house in Suwanee now, not Roswell, where I grew up. So, I’m not really used to it yet, and it doesn’t really feel like home, like their old house did. Part of their things are theirs from the old house, part of […]

Wherein I Whore Myself Out for Free Cards

Well, not really. Because the cards are so cute! Every year, I say I am going to get my Christmas tasks done early. I say things like: “I will finish Christmas cards right after Thanksgiving.” “I will be done with shopping and wrapping by Dec. 15th.” “My house will be decorated the first weekend of […]

Chamblee Charette Summary

I don’t usually post political stuff, but thought I would post this, since folks might be interested in how this went. I cross-posted this one on The Evansdale Porch, also. You must register to see that discussion. I attended last night, along with three other Evansdale parents that I know of. It started at 6:30 […]

I love her

I watched as Tiller took off full-throttle downhill to the bus stop. Then something caught her eye in the neighbor’s yard, so she darted over to it. She bent over. Picked something up. Stood up, holding a stem with dandelion seeds at the end, then blew them as hard as she could. Watched them fall […]

Jane Austen’s Fight Club

I know. Two videos in a row. Lazy. But this one is so funny! Jane Austen’s Fight Club. No smaller version, so deal with margin issue. Via Baby Got Books. (You should be reading it if you aren’t already. Love it. Unless you don’t like books, in which case you might as well end it […]

Dear Universe

I know you probably think it was funny that i didn’t finish all my work this morning and the kids were bored and tried to kill each other, so I took them grocery shopping, where Tiller proceeded to knock a glass tray of cheese cubes on the floor and it broke, and she cut her […]
