While You Were At Camp

What’s it like for a mom to have five whole days to herself with no kid around because the kid is at a day camp for the first time?  Allow me to share how my week has been. Monday-  I walked my son in to camp and promptly found his group leader.  I deposited his […]

No More Leftovers

Today is the first day of summer vacation for E.B. and I.  He’s been out of school for almost two weeks already, but Friday was my last day of work. Here we sit, side by side, still in our pajamas (with me sans makeup and hair pulled back) at noon.  He begged me to download […]

Busy May Weekend

I rarely take off work unless I’m really sick or E.B. is sick, but I always set aside two personal days in May to attend a couple of events at E.B.’s school.  With this school year seeming much longer than usual, it felt great to leave work Thursday afternoon knowing I had an extra day […]

Hopefully by now everyone is thawed out from last week’s Polar Vortex.  You would think living in the South, the cold air that we got wouldn’t be all that bad, but even though we didn’t see any snow, the temperatures were pretty brutal.   We had some trouble with our water pipes for two days, and […]

  Happy New Year!   I wish I could tell you I rang in the new year with some exciting, amazing party, but this is how it went down at our house: Subway sandwiches and watching cheesy New Years Eve countdowns on TV.  Speaking of which, I don’t know if I’m just showing my age or […]

Waiting…Waiting…Waiting

E.B. has a cough and his voice became really hoarse on Christmas Day.  I started feeling yucky Friday after a trip to the store.  I’ve lived in Mississippi long enough to know that my self-diagnosis of The Delta Crud was happening, so yesterday E.B. and I headed off to the doctor.  We had a 2 […]
