Sometimes something a little magical happens, and it can turn an entire week around in a snap. It rained this evening. By some miracle we actually finished dinner with lots of time to spare, and Birdie asked to go outside with her umbrella. I joined her, and next thing you know we’re laughing in the […]

Spring break. Who’s bright idea was that anyway? In theory, I suppose it’s pretty awesome. But not so much for the parents who get to stay home all week with the kiddos? If you’re in college, hey, more power to you. Go find your way south and have a blast. That was never my idea […]

Are you ready? It’s April Fool’s Day, and if I’m perfectly honest, I kinda hate this holiday. I think it’s probably because I’m too gullible, and I don’t like it when someone pulls the wool over my eyes. Or, it could be that I’m just not a very naturally funny person, so I can never come […]

It’s Easter weekend! We’re planning a low-key affair, but with enough Easter eggs to keep the smaller member of the household quite satisfied. I’m wishing I had some Easter eggs planned for myself, if I’m honest. Anyone know if the Easter Bunny will drop off eggs for older, erm, children? Have a wonderful weekend – […]

It’s Springtime! Close enough anyway, as the Spring Equinox is finally happening this weekend. Birdie has literally been counting down the days, certain that come Monday morning somehow the world will have turned green, sunny, and fragrant with flowers. Unfortunately, here in Minnesota, that won’t really be the case. But hey, we’re on our way […]

March is definitely not starting off with a bang. I’ve talked with several people who all feel the same way: this first week kind of sucked. Things going wrong, stinky attitudes, short tempers, and general discontent. I’m not enjoying it. Apparently, astrologically there’s a reason for it, but I’m not the one to explain it. […]

This week kind of flew by – which in February I consider a good thing, since every day is one day closer to Spring. Which I’m practically hallucinating for already. But the week included sketching some reindeer, making some banana bread, playing with Birdie, skipping my dentist appointment (don’t worry, I rescheduled), and I wrapped […]
