A nice evening alone.

Most Friday nights David and Rebekah usually come over and visit and we do a whole evening thing we have supper and visit and then after the kids are in bed we watch a movie. It is a lot of fun but sometimes it is nice to have a break. Tonight was one of those […]

I think I am going round the bend.

Crazy. Nuts. Bonkers. Loopy. Call it what you will but the last few days (since Christmas ended) I feel sort of like I imagine it must feel to go insane. Today on at least half a dozen occasions I walked into a room only to realize that I had no idea why I had walked […]

My sneaky sneaker.

This morning Nate awoke before me and came down stairs while Cam came into my room and woke me up. I called down to Nate and asked him to come back upstairs but being 3 he didn’t listen. So I got dressed and Cam and headed down stairs. I could hear him playing in the […]

How do they do it?

Every year for about a decade now I have told myself that this Christmas I will be done early. That I won’t be shopping days before Christmas. That I will wrap things ahead so that I am not up past midnight Christmas eve. And every year it comes down to the wire. This year is […]

Why don’t I sleep?

I don’t have insomnia or anything like that but I do wonder what is wrong with me? Am I insane? Was dropped on my head as a baby? For as long as I can remember and even now as an adult I am horrible about going to bed. It doesn’t matter how tired I am […]

The magic is gone.

Warning not for young children. I am not about to say anything horrible but I am going to talk about Santa and I would hate to make a child sad. In our house we don’t have Santa as a part of Christmas. What I mean by that is he doesn’t bring presents to the kids […]

Today Nate went for his 4th round of botox. He was so good about the whole thing. Unfortunately he had a bit of a cold but they did it any way. Everything went well but he now has a fever and isn’t feeling well either. It was a long day and I am exhausted and […]
