Thirty-something wife of one & mother of two. Okay...maybe that qualifies as mother to three?? (Kidding...honey.) Instead of writing about my dreams & aspirations, I will write about my dreams of how every night of the week at least one of the 3 additional people in my household wake me from my very precious sleep to tell me something very unimportant. I love coffee. I love cake. I dislike waking up to a messy kitchen and I really dislike my #1 monkey becoming a pre-teen or my #2 monkey becoming WAY TO OLD. I have these new silver strands of hair (okay, they're not that new....) and I am having this crisis of if I should keep them or let them go. See, not high-tech stuff people.

Michelle

Who am I?  Good Question.  I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, a sister, a sister-in-law, a niece, an auntie, a cousin and a granddaughter.  I am also a friend, an employee, and the person who is driving the electric car 10 mph below what you want me to.  I am the…

The Hubby

This is hubby. He happens to be in the witness protection program so I cannot show his real face.  Hubby is the most patient man there is.  I am not actually quite sure how he deals with the shenanigans that happen in our household each day.  Between the pre-teen dramatics and the never-ending-is-that-poop-or-chocolate debates, he…

M.A.C. (Moms against candy), I am in.

as posted on perfectduluthday.com To bank tellers, store clerks and post-office-counter workers (especially if you’re a woman who’s, like, 60): Don’t ask my children if they want candy. And while you’re at it, and even though it’s far more appropriate, don’t ask me, in front of the children, whether they may have candy. If it…

How to embrace your crazy, chaotic life

I read this and just related with it so much that I couldn’t help but post this!  I feel like this is so much a typical day in my life (not the young 20 year old…the one with the 2 kids).  Sometimes I wonder the same thing this woman does.  We just go through our…

A Full Day…Alone.

I just spend a 6 hour day alone.  I called into work, dropped my kids off (one at school, one with daycare friends), picked up a brown sugar & cinnamon latte to sip and came home.  I got to blast my music, eat a pizza at 10am, clean with whatever stinky cleaning products I want…

Guilty Pleasures….

I love dance music.  Worse. I love teenage dance music…the kind that my #1 monkey is into lately.  I mean the kind that for years I couldn’t stand, but suddenly love….Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kesha, Black Eyed Peas, that new song with Eminem & Rhianna….most of you respectable people probably haven’t heard of these people…

The Current Phase of the Moon Tonight: Waning Crescent

Date night #2 well under way (in fact, almost done, sob!) Tonight we did all that we dreamed of doing last week but fell thru…had a nice glass of wine, went to eat at our favorite thai food restaurant and settled down at our favorite melting pot coffee shop, once again.  Very nice! We have…
