Judgemental, Much?

The other day, I was deep in a FaceBook know, a friend that commented on another "friend's" photo that tagged someone (who's that?) and that someone else's someone who OHMIGOSH we have a mutual friend LET ME LOOK AT ALLLLLLL THE PHOTOS? Yeah, that. Anyway, the "someone else's someone" that was tagged in the photo was about 8...and I was all, " 8?". So, OF COURSE I had to look at that person's page and I went as far as the cover photo, shook my head in disgust that some good-for-nothing parents let their 8 year old have a FaceBook page and promptly left, because "Hi! I'm Mother-of-the-Year. I never make bad decisions. Never fail at parenting. And OH MY WORD. I would never and I mean NEVER let my 8 year old have a FaceBook page." And then it dawned on me. What if...I mean, bear with me here, people...WHAT IF that "someone else's someone" was so proud and in love with her 8 year old da

Real Time...Late April Edition

Remember that one time at band camp a couple of months ago when I said I was (mostly) ready to do after photos of our remodel? Um. Yeah. Seems like I can't get myself to take the dang pictures!!!  Ugh. Anyway...I promise. Soon. I still love our kitchen...even while I sit here tappity tapping away on my computer and it remains a mess from supper. *Yawn* Ain't nobody got time for that!! Listening to my hubby and my biggest girl chat...I love that I'm married to a guy who's an amazing father. It warms my heart to hear them having heart-to-hearts. I can also hear the little three (how long will I be able to call them "the little three"?) outside, playing on the swing set, enjoying the *barely* warm weather. Heard on the forecast today that there is supposed to be snow tonight. Or tomorrow. WHATEV mother nature! I mean, c'mon! We get teased with these brief stretches of beautiful weather and then 40's and snow?! Fer dumb. I'm craving something


Good gracious, you guys. WHEN DID LIFE GET SO BUSY??????? Holy moly. Last time I looked it was April 1st and then I turned around and it's April 15th and we're thick in the craziness of spring sports and talking about summer activities and OH MY GOSH there's like 20-something days of school left!!! One of the things I noticed when I took my school job was how SUDDENLY we were crazy busy and I came to the conclusion that either: 1. I had no idea how much work my husband did in the evenings when I worked at the hospital or 2. Now that I was available as a "mom" and "wife" and "parent" in the evenings, we just GOT busier because, well: I wasn't working evenings anymore, so why not fill them up with something else?! Regardless, it was great timing because it HAS allowed me to get more involved and to have what I like to call a "normal" life with my family. One thing I've taken on, of late, is to chair a big event at my kiddo

Life: An Update

First things jokes here! Just a plain old life update!  Howdy, y'all! I was just thinking tonight, "You know what sound I love? The clickity clack of a keyboard when I'm on a roll and the words are flowing out of my fingers almost  faster than my brain can handle." I love that. And it's been too long...too far in between. I know I still have to do our remodel "after" pictures...I'm still DEEPLY in love with it, but I think my hang up is the two doors we have yet to, well, hang up . ;) Still a decent amount to do before we can wipe our hands of the dust, but we'll get there...and soon! In the meantime, feast your eyes on my barndoor. I closed it for you. ;) I thought maybe it was time for an update on life. It's good. I'm nearing the end of my first FULL year of being a school nurse and WHOA NELLY has it a been a doozy. Between routine fall busyness, we had a pertussis outbreak, followed closely by an influenza outbre
