End table makeover

Awhile back we were given a couple of nice quality end tables that a couple of our girls used as night stands for awhile.  When they moved on to other room arrangements, I wasn’t sure where else they would fit in the house.  I knew I’d need more end tables at the beach house, but […]

Seven Great Ways to Use Eggs

I went grocery shopping yesterday and was amazed to discover that (in our area anyway) a carton of five dozen eggs is only $2.69. I can't remember the last time eggs were that cheap.  That's a LOT of protein for less than $3.  In honor of that … [Read More...]

A message to younger mothers

Join me today at 12 PM CST for my interview with  MyFaithRadio  Website: myfaithradio.com/cf/ ~~~~~ On Sunday during church I glanced over at my 14 year old daughter.  She was sitting on the pew, cross-legged and jeans-clad and barefoot, … [Read More...]

Ring Around The…TV?

We’ve just introduced the baby to the delights of “Ring Around The Rosy”. She will go til I’m dizzy and my knees are complaining from too much “all fall down.” Thankfully she has siblings who are still willing to play even after her momma quits. This afternoon the four youngest were going round and round. […]

And I’m Homeschooling??

OK– I was directed to this by Mommy Needs To Vent. Thought for sure I would get them all right. I mean, I’m homeschooling my kids, for pity sakes– and how hard can 8th grade math be?? But, ack, I only got a B!! The dumb thing is they don’t even tell you which ones […]

True Love

The Queen of Spain is having a contest. She’s looking for pictures of true love. I immediately thought of this one of hubby and me TWENTY-ONE years ago at Prom. Boggles my mind that is was THAT long ago! This year we celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, so it really must have been true love! […]

Beyond Borders

Friday evening it wasn’t quite movie-time bedtime for the kids yet and they were running around burning off their last energy. So hubby and I went on Costco.com looking at living room furniture. Our old couch is really starting to fall apart and we’re short on seating, so we’re looking at possibly spending part of […]

A Couple Things

I wanted to thank y’all for the movie recommends– I appreciate them. Also, since I hinted in a previous post that I was only looking for PG movies, I feel I ought to mention that ‘Beyond Borders’ is actually ‘R’ (for language and violence). We made an exception to our ‘no-R’ rule to see it, […]

Movie Review: Beyond Borders

I found this movie at the checkstand at Walmart for less than $5. Wasn’t expecting much, but was curious about it because Angelia Jolie, a fellow Ethiopian adoptive mom, is in it. All I can say is wow. Not an easy movie to watch. But amazing. I want to talk about it more later. But […]

Movie Recommendations?

Hubby and I are planning on renting a movie or two this weekend. Anybody seen anything good recently (that isn’t R-rated)? We were thinking of Pleasantville, but need more ideas…

Kids These Days

So my 3 teenagers are headed off to Snow Camp this weekend. This morning before my hubby dropped them off at church, he and I went over the usual parental checklist. “Coat?” check. “Toothbrush?” check. “Extra gloves?” check. “Sleeping bag?” check. After about 10 questions along those lines from each parent addressed to each child, […]

Unclean! Unclean!

Why, after one bath and TWO showers this morning, do I still feel the urge to scrub myself? Let’s just say that taking a bath with a baby can be risky. Oh, and the baby learned how to say “poop” this morning. Something about two revolted tub-mates screaming it over and over while hastily fleeing […]
