Good Gravy & Four Other Things I’m Grateful for This Thanksgiving

How was your Thanksgiving? Good in every way, I hope, and I can’t think of a better day to for a peek inside my Gratitude Journal. Today was kind of a weird day, but weird in a good way. It was just Paul, Cody, Nick and me plus a few family guests and while I […]

Wordless Wednesday – A Banana Loving Horse, Of Course

 

Sometimes Mondays Aren’t So Bad

Be honest. Do you like Mondays? I mean, I know they generally get a bad rap, but I’ve honestly never had much against them except of course when I’m having a bad one. In that case, it’s totally Monday’s fault for whatever is going wrong at the time. Mostly, though, I’ve always liked Mondays. I […]

What’s on My DVR List Right Now? Hint: We Watch a Lot of Great TV Shows

Do you ever wonder what television shows other people are watching? Either because you want ideas for something new to watch or because you want someone to talk to about the shows you’re already watching?

Today was kind of a weird Saturday. Well, part of it was because it was just Cody and I at home for a few hours because Nick was at work and Paul was at rehearsal. They’re getting so close to opening night, which means the rehearsals are more frequent, more hours, and more stress for […]

This is Autism. Some Days are Harder than Others

Well, would you look at that. It’s Friday again already and just like the last couple weeks I had a plan for today, but then we had a rough morning and I’m drained. It’s only two in the afternoon and I feel like taking a nap, but I’m not going to do that because we […]

Disclosure: I’m a compensated member of the U.S. Cellular blogger brigade, but all tips, opinions, and attempts at humor are my own. I can’t believe I’m bringing this up, but have you started your holiday shopping yet? As in, have you actually bought any presents for anyone on your gift list? If you have then […]

Wordless Wednesday {A Cat’s Perspective} Or the Opposite, Maybe

Some of My Favorite Fridge Staples & How Did Vault Boy Get in There?

So here I am almost to the half way point of National Blog Posting Month and while I’d like to celebrate that fact, I’m also feeling a bit lame with some of what I’ve written so far. Some days it’s hard, especially when you go from basically neglecting your blog (like I had done) to […]
