{SQT} First World Problems

This week I’ve been dealing with the greatest of all first world problems; no internet. Okay, I’m still technically able to get online through my neighbor’s unsecured wireless network but only the desktop can pick up the signal, and not reliably. That’s meant no photo uploads or downloads and no video streaming. And normally we’re Read More

I Borrowed Your Seven Quick Takes

I’ve been at a loss for what to write for a ‘Seven Quick Takes’ post for a couple of weeks now. No cohesive theme has jumped out at me and lately I feel like I’ve been summing up my weekly goings on with my ‘Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real’ posts on Thursdays. But everyone else around Read More

Sweaty Summer Hand-Wringing Broken Into Seven Quick Takes

I don’t even know if these really qualify as seven quick takes since they’re all related. Can Jen disqualify people for not keeping things distinct and succinct?  If she asks, let’s all pretend I’m following protocol mmmmmkay?

Seven Quick Takes of Absurd Random Proportions

How long ago was it that Jen mentioned people who always have themes for the SQT? Last week? Two weeks ago? Yes, that’s usually me. Trying to be organized, with all my loose ends tied up, at least here on the interweb. However this week I’ve been unable to maintain a train of though for Read More

If you are feeling lazy and need a pick me up, I suggest you head somewhere else.  Like HERE, HERE and HERE. Instead, I present you with my demotivational advice. You’re going to feel Read More

I’m Thankful for…Seven Quick Takes

Last weekend the last two healthy kids in the house finally succumbed to illness. I was forced to accept the fact that some well laid plans for this week  just weren’t going to happen. I pouted and vented and got a little teary eyed. But my husband, rock that he is,  gave me a pep Read More

{SQT} Under the Weather

I thought the Easter aftermath couldn’t get much worse than two sprained ankles in a single day followed by a sick baby. But unfortunately, because I even let that thought cross my mind, fate laid the smack down on me by allowing a virus to infiltrate my kids. Despite telling myself, and my husband,  repeatedly Read More

{SQT} Bullets to Balls.

I did a bit of traveling with the family recently and thought I’d use my first foray into the ‘Seven Quick Takes’ meme by mentioning seven things people put on their vehicles which mystify me. 1.
