Weekend Ramblings

Raines looked over my shoulder as I was writing this.  "Wow, Mom!  That picture's of Christmas Eve!" he said reverently. Indeed.  This pic was taken by my mom last Christmas.  Not Christmas Eve, but, you know, close enough.  I'm currently in Michigan, sitting in front of the fire, curled up with my laptop, coffee, and chocolate.  Not a bad way...

It’s Movember!

Happy Movember!   (And yes, Mike is using a chunk of my fallen-out hair.)   Mike D. Making me giggle with wildly inappropriate jokes since 1995. Go get your guys checked out, Mamas.  We're not the only ones needed by our kids.   Some fun stuff: I was literally working on a shopping-enabler post of my favorite flannel shirts...when Who What Wear Daily published...

Friday, Friday

What are you guys up to this weekend?  We'll be going to R's soccer game (the cute factor in under-6 soccer is unbelievably high)...and probably do a little outing of some sort.  My next chemo is Wednesday already, so this is my weekend to live it up. Germantown Ave Parents put together a bucket list of 10 Ways to Get...

Friday!

Well, Mamas.  I made it.  I'm more than a week past my first chemo treatment, and tomorrow marks the day that all major side-effects should abate.  (Theoretically, of course.)  Happy, happy Friday.   I feel like I've earned the weekend.  Chemo sucks.  I've been writing quite a bit over on my personal blog, so if you want any of the gory...

TGIF LONG

It's been a tough week, Mamas.  I received my "chemo calendar" and seeing it all there in black and white...wow.  It's sobering.  It's amazing how many drugs are required just to counteract the side effects of the chemo.  I mean...thank goodness, but still.  I'm the type of person who tries to tough out a headache, you know?  These next...

August Friday.

Well, here we are.  August.  How did we get here?  I can barely remember the day of the week these days, much less account for a very blurry July.  (There's a reason they don't want you driving on narcotics, Mamas.  A very good reason.)  Thank you all so much for your continued support, love, and prayers.  I meet with...
Any big plans for the weekend, Mamas?  I'm already craving Tired Hands Brewery's house-made pickles and candied bacon.  Yup - you heard correctly:  bacon candied, served with maple syrup for dipping.  Also?  Everything is locally sourced.  It's our go-to spot for Happy Hour, and low-key enough to bring the kids.  Yesssssss. Earth Day is coming up, and John Master's Organics...
WOOT WOOT Weekend, Mamas!  The last two weeks have been very, very long.  I have been inexplicably sick (with a cold!  It's just a cold!) for over two solid weeks.  This nasty virus has robbed me of motivation, sucked me of enthusiasm, and taken my patience out for a looong vacation.  Grrrrrrr. Even my kids have been attempting to cheer...

Friday Fun

Guess who is missing the beach right about now?  I mean...it's not like I don't like biting, 30 degree winds, it's just tha--  Right.  The drastic change from a freeing beach week to waaay too much "indoor family time" is driving the boys and I nuts.  NUTS!  And we're only half unpacked, so the house looks as if a...
Mamas!  I can't thank you guys enough for the video love.  It's funny, but I almost didn't post it.  I don't know...it just felt so unprofessional.  HA!  Talk about the understatement of the year.  But it was definitely real, so thank you for the support.  We'll try to do more of those.  Also, thanks to One Little Mama and...
