Sunday’s Funnies and a weeks re-cap.

It is a beautiful Sunday morning and I am losing myself in my blog this morning as I still haven’t perfected the whole “time -management” in fitting this into my daily insanity called life.

I have tried posting early in the morning but with the kids in school and getting them out the door on time, there is no “me” time unless I wake up at 4 am – which just isn’t happening. Even coffee can’t replace my love for sleep.

I tried to post last thing at night, but the issue with that is after I get home from work,  I help with dinner, chauffeur to dance or some school event, help with homework and actually spend time with my family because we are addicted to The Walking Dead and the fact that my kids love to hang with us old people on the couch is AWESOME. From there, I make my way upstairs to finish little tasks like sign paperwork needed for school, order something for school, create something for school, (see my issue) I am TIRED and really just want to become one with my pillow.

While I lay there, I am thinking about what I would blog about.

My day, how the coffee chat prompt would tie into my day – “show me your brave” Time Out for Mom

what crazy image I captured for the week would make an excellent WW.

Like this awesome magnet my co-worker brought me back from her trip to Vegas!

All while Pondering with  BYG Adventures what show I will lose myself in while I am waiting for this version of an Orange to release season 3.

The next thing I know, my 5am alarm is yelling at me to get up and repeat the process all over again by first feeding all the animals, cat’s first.



So I have decided that maybe Sunday is my day. To wrap them all into one





Create them all at once and then remember to post them the right day.

The issue with that – the prompt tie-ins. I like to live each day. I can’t foresee what will happen. I like to take events from my week and use those in my blog. I know I am not alone in this.

I just need to really figure out the whole TIMING ISSUE. Again, ideas welcome.

Anyway, tell me what you think and enjoy your Sunday!

Comic Sunday

My son gave me the best comic book for Christmas last year and it my downtime I have enjoyed the laughter it has provided me. This book is a pretty accurate depiction of our current household with a teenage boy.

The one I am sharing today is in regard to chores.

In my reality

Follow Friday Four Fill In!

Feeling Beachie

The statements:

  1. I just ____
  2. ___ is _____
  3. If I could, I would ________
  4. _____makes me______


1. I just got home from shopping with my daughter for pants for a school field trip which cost waaaay more than they should have.

2. Winter is here and it’s darn right ugly at a warm 4 degrees.

3. If I could, I would totally play hookie tomorrow from work but sadly, that isn’t a option. Sigh….

4. The thought of holiday shopping makes me cringe because the holidays and retail bring out the U.G.L.Y in people. This is where online shopping has become my favorite!



Tuesday Coffee chat….

Happy Tuesday! I have my afternoon coffee with a little extra sumpin-sumpin and I have my fuzzy slippers on.

Why… Please see below

Today is Coffee Chat with my good friend Rory! Click on this link first. Time Out for Mom

Time out for Mom

Today’s topic – “are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

I have completed the following today.

I went to work for 5 hours and left at 12 to pick up both kids and make it to our dental appointments with a new dentist which I am thrilled to report that EVERYONE is cavity free!!!

Dancing Teeth

We do however, myself included need to do a bit better on the brushing front. I am really good about brushing in the morning because I have coffee and NO ONE wants to smell that including me. I am really bad about the brushing before bed. It just becomes a lot of work to get back out of bed to go complete this 2 minute tasks because the idea of sleep has really already taken hold and I can feel my body letting go.

So I told my kids today when we left the dental office that if we needed to make this a family event at night to ensure everyone is brushing AND flossing we will. You can just imagine what they thought of this grand idea.

Anyway, after we got home I did the following :

Called a guy who turned out to be a kid (maybe not much older than my own son) to come paint  and patch a whole in our garage door for cheap because we haven’t and NEED TO GET IT DONE.

Balanced the checkbook – which of course is pointless and depressing.


Here is what I haven’t done and need to.

Finish a card for the next card swap I am attending in two weeks.

Gone through the amazing family portraits we had taken some time ago, pick the favorites and order the prints and holiday cards.  I seem to always wait until the last minute for this because, well I am just that way.

As for letting things go that I can’t seem to…

My back yard.

I have in my brain this imagery of what I want to see when I walk out in the back yard.

But this is more along the lines of what is reality but still not my yard. (some picture I found when I google’d “empty back yards”

I know that I have a blank canvas and it takes time to make art.

Not really sure what my hang up is only that I am stuck.

I will get there. Can’t say I will let it go, but I will get there.

Happy Tuesday night!


Tuesday’s Coffee – It is the right way to end the night!

Time out for Mom
Tuesday, November 4/14
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Such a fabulous prompt!!!!
I think if one is going to do anything at all it should be done right because who wants to go back and have to do it again.  I am a tad OCD when it comes to how certain things are kept within our home or fighting for hours trying to format a post on my blog because for whatever reason the formatting is all off  (I do apologize if it looks funny – I think I may have broken it) and my brain is done for the day and there are more days lately when I have to tell myself to just …

Yea- I totally went there and you’re welcome.

On the flip-side of this prompt would be the situation my daughter found herself in yesterday at school. Her BFF was in some minor trouble and had asked my daughter to lie for her to cover it up.  My daughter has always been what we like to call our “Honest Abe” because lying has never been something she likes or can do. It literally causes her moral compass to completely FREAK OUT and make her feel like the worst.person.ever!
So she chose do be honest which caused a somewhat small disagreement with the BFF which I later learned that the BFF had cooled and the planets were back in alignment.
(Girls and their DRAMA- make me a tired Mama!)

So doing the right thing has always been something she has proven time and time again, pays off. Her father and I are very proud!

I believe that if we all just live our lives within our ability to make the world a happy place, you cover both sides of the question.
Happy Tuesday!

Ponder me this…

Today’s word is LITTER!

The first thing that comes to mind is the silliness of all the NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN ADS that are littering my mailbox! O…M…G! One more week!

Second – A litter of these adorable creatures!

And long ago, in another lifetime,

I worked as Vet Tech and on my departure of my very first clinic, one of the vets made this cake for me.


Kinda gross but creative I thought…

Happy Thursday!




Tuesday’s Coffee with some Halloween spice!

This weeks topic is “

If you were going to a Costume Ball (and since Halloween is days away), what costume would you wear?
This year them is a flash back to the 80’s!
The hair will be teased and styled high and held in place with our dear friend – Aqua Net!
The clothing will the direct result of  just be digging thru the closet of archives for pieces once thought out – which has made a small comeback.
That will take place in 4 days.

In the past though this has by far been the best costume EVER .

The idea of course goes to my hubby for thinking of it!
