{SQT} Here’s A Comment, So Comment Back Maybe?

I sat down last night at my computer to type up a {pretty, happy, funny,real} post, when I realized yesterday was Thursday! Gah! Guess that means I’ll have to cram all the blather of a Seven Quick Takes with the photo sensibilities of a {p,h,f,r} post. Two great tastes that taste great together.  *smush* Plus […]

My Buckets Overfloweth or A Gallagher Harvest

From our deck, we are able to look out across acres of protected farmland. It’s a wonderful view that lures us into thinking we’re back amongst the fields of Lancaster, minus the manure smell. The family that farms the fields rotates crops and every year we anxiously wait to see what will spring up. This […]

{SQT} Insert Smiley Face Where There Is A Frown

I contemplated skipping SQT this week because what could possibly top seven things about my new clock? But here I am, neglecting the children again and wracking my brain for seven things that can somehow reflect my week without making me seem like a whiney momasaurus. Prepare the fail button. 1.  My house is loud. […]

Pinning All My Hopes And Dreams On…2012-13 Curriculum

  August messes with my head because, on one hand, I’m all “Yay, we’ve finally wrapped up another school year! No school for a month!” while on the other, I’m completely “Aaaaa! Only a month until we start another year of school! I need to write up lesson plans and completely overthink how and why […]

Looking Back And Moving Forward; Blogging Lesson Plans?

Six months ago on February 21, I decided more than six hours of sleep a night was overrated, and jumped head first into the competitive sport of mommy blogging. I registered a domain and designed a site despite not being entirely certain what I would write about on a regular basis. Would people really want […]

{SQT} The Clock

1. Cue angelic choir, part the heavens, enter in the streams of golden sunlight, BEHOLD THEE TIMEPIECE OF YE GODS; Your eyes do not deceive you. It’s a German beer stein, pipe, accordion, Tudor house wall clock. AND as a bonus it has Roman numerals, which we love cause we’re traditional. This is the only acceptable […]

Why You Will Not Want To Carpool With My Family

Monday evening Tony and I were sitting outside chatting about our days when I enthusiastically shared with him the description of a handicap van I saw in a hospital parking lot. We’re looking to upgrade to an even larger handicap van/truck/bus/semi-truck in order to transport our whole family once Teddy gets his wheelchair in the next year. […]

Summer Ramblings Of The Blah, Blah, Blah Variety

Did you ever have that feeling on a Monday night that your week was shaping up to be one of the longest yet one of the fastest weeks in you life? Like you would feel all 168 hours of it in the marrow of your bones, yet you would see and remember none of it […]

{SQT} Seven Things You Should Know About SMA

  Since starting this blog, I’ve only briefly mentioned the disease that afflicts my two youngest sons. If you’ve spent any time with me here, you’ve read about wheelchair crashing and hospital stays, but only as they relate to our everyday life. I’ve shied away from talking too much about Spinal Muscular Atrophy, or SMA, […]

{MMD} Perspectives on Life and Love

Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy is hosting a Perspectives on Life and Love blog carnival I couldn’t resist joining. Maybe the recent wedding put me in an extra sappy mood, or our approaching anniversary or it could be my attempt to make amends with the hubby for a recent post that doted on shirtless surf […]
