Do you have that certain time of the day where you must. have. a snack? I do. It’s around 3:00 or so. That’s the time of day where I am likely to scarf down a stack of Oreos eat a block of cheese make some bad choices. I don’t know what it is about that […]
It’s Me… Grant. Duh.
I have said before that my marriage is based on love, trust, respect… and the laughter that can come with totally screwing with the other person. Sometimes it is a big thing. Sometimes it’s the little things. Once when Handsome Hubby and I were out to dinner (at a very nice restaurant) we ordered a […]
I had to run into Target over the weekend to pick up a birthday gift for one of Grant’s little buddies. I figured since I was there, I should grab a few gallons of milk too. And a frozen pizza. Oooh, and paper towels. And some juice boxes… As I cruised down one of the […]
My wonderful son Devin. So sweet. So handsome. So smart. Such a goofball…. Last night I made stuffed bell peppers for dinner. They’re fairly quick and easy, plus red bell peppers were on sale for 19 cents each this week and I had plenty to use up. Due to a meeting, Handsome Hubby couldn’t be […]

My kids are all smart. They frequently make dumb choices, but technically they are all very intelligent. That’s why things like this just crack me up: Me: “Mitch, it is supposed to be very hot today… are you sure you want to wear jeans to school?” Mitch: “I have to. I don’t have any shorts.” […]
Last Thursday was Devin’s birthday, and on Friday morning he went to Knott’s Berry Farm with 3 of his friends… 2 boys and 1 girl. Maddie, he assured me, was a friend. Just a friend. Not a girlfriend. I dropped the kids off at 10:00 a.m. and the plan was to pick them up close […]
Handsome Hubby was on the computer visiting one of his favorite sites, Google Earth. HH: “Hey, did you know there is a Grant, California?” Me: “No.” Grant: “I wish there was a Grant, Texas….” (big sigh) What the?
