I say I want to lose the baby weight. Some days, I actually believe that I want to lose the baby weight.
But most of the time, I feel that I’m exactly where I should be a couple months after childbirth. It’s not my first go-round. I remember that the baby weight came off the [...]
Whew! It’s over.
I did it. I posted every single day for a month.
I don’t know how those daily bloggers do it. I don’t even know how those Monday through Friday posters do it. If I haven’t learned anything else, I’ve learned that I am NOT, I repeat NOT a post-a-day type of person. [...]
He does a peek-a-boo around the house every now and again. And even if he’s not in plain view, you can bet your jingle bells he’s spying on you. He’s making detailed notes about your behavior to report back to Mr. Claus, who outsourced the Naughty or Nice List a few years back [...]
Bella dog does this. My first thought was that the cameraman has a tennis ball. Then, I see all that land behind them. They’re definitely herding dogs, and they’re waiting for a command. Border collies are awesome. But, we’re not sitting on 10 acres, so tennis ball it is.
So, I’m making stuffing – two kinds of stuffing. One gluten-free quinoa stuffing, one traditional, comfort-food bread stuffing.
I pick up my phone to check my recipe, and I notice there’s a voicemail. So I check it.
It’s my doctor’s office. The nurse would like me to return her call.
I went [...]
If the view count of this video has noticeably gone up in recent weeks, it’s because my kids are obsessed with this song. They know all the words. And you know how kids are – if they like a song, they want to hear it over and over and over and over…
Hey, it’s [...]
I don’t like to get preachy, but I’m giving myself a pass today.
I’ve come across a number of posts today giving advice on how to avoid overeating on Thanksgiving.
Drink hot tea.
Eat a raw apple.
Fill up on water.
Skip the breads.
Pass on dessert.
I get it – nobody wants [...]
First heavy snow of the season means makes me want to make chili and cornbread. Well, guess what? It snowed big ‘ol snowflakes today, and they blew sideways. I think that counts as our snow season kickoff tradition of chili and cornbread.
Oh, wait…there’s that thing where Mister can’t have gluten, dairy or [...]
I like mornings after the clocks change in the fall. The “stolen hour” feeling lasts for a week or two.
But then the afternoon passes, evening comes, and reality peeks through the windows.
It’s 5:00 pm, and it’s dark outside.
This bums me out.
I don’t know if it’s a need for Vitamin D, or [...]
Yep, I just started making yogurt a few weeks ago. Now, look at me posting about it like I’m an expert or something.
(No, I’m not going to go through how to make yogurt. If you search “make yogurt in a slow cooker,” you get exactly one million bajillion results. I learned how [...]
