Well, Maddie is gone… Hank is at work, and I am left to my own devises (and a large supply of chocolate milk and goldfishes, which, if you haven’t heard, are SO delicious) so I’m going to write some crap… So I haven’t given you any parenting tips for awhile, and by parenting tips, I […]Read more "Devon… Mother of the Devil"
*sigh* Ok, has anyone out there read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne? My mom got it for me for Christmas and I was pretty excited to delve into the “secret to a happy life”. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone… so if you plan to read this, you should definitely avoid my comments […]Read more "The Secret… book review"
Is it just me, or do other people think they can make pretty much anything they sell now a days? I hear myself saying an embarrassing number of times while in stores and shopping online, “Hell, I could make that…”. I should just fork out the money instead of trying to make it myself because […]Read more "Crafty Christmas"
So I have Christmas on the brain already. I’m trying to become a better person this year, as far as gift giving goes… not that I haven’t been a decent giver in the past. I’ve always tried to personalize gifts, making things for loved ones and buying gifts that I think would be pleasant to […]Read more "A lesson in goat giving…"
So I had my first real outing since, hell, since I got knocked up, I think. I went out for some drinks with Sarah and 2 of her friends to a nice karaoke bar in Worthington. I decided against wearing my usual frump-wear and stuff myself into something nice (with the exception of my grannie […]Read more "Long story about how I’m an IDIOT… and YOU can be too!!!"
So, my cousin has been suggesting that we start a t-shirt business since she got a fleeting glimpse of my previous creations for Roman (such hits as onesies that say…”Get Dad… I pooped”, and “Nurse me!!”) and since Hank and I are working on a welcome home onesie for Joe’s return home from Korea (read […]Read more "You steal these ideas, I will sooo sue you… ;)"
I’m guessing that our house was once inhabited by giants. I know this because every single preexisting nail hammered into our walls is located about one foot from the 10 foot high ceiling. Not that I have a problem with giants or anything, but it creates a few small problems when I hang a picture […]Read more "a little bit about interior design…."
So today I’m going to talk about what a class act I’ve become. I realized what things have progressed to when during my break (yes, Roman sometimes gives me breaks) I was sitting outside, reading Real Simple magazine hoping they have tips this month on how to get your hair washed more than once a […]Read more "Classy lay-day…whoa whoa woah… she’s a layday!"
So parenthood is great. The baby is awesome and my new best friend. As far as I go, however, I have been scotch taping myself back together since giving birth and I’m not too sure how well I’m pulling it off. I have to wear these fun little plastic cups in my bra to keep […]Read more "Romie’s my homie…"
I probably have only a few minutes… ack.. make that seconds (he stirs) before he summons me for the next feeding, but that’s okay because I have nothing to bitch about. Well, with the exception of all my girly bits hurting like all get out, but that’s a given, I suppose. Roman Enrique Dane Ortega […]Read more "He’s Heeeerrrreeeee!!!!!!"
