…but i digress…
a humorous take on my distracted life as a stay-at-home mother and military wife
What would you do in pursuit of snacks? Recently I took a little roadtrip with three of my kids to see their oldest sister ET have her white-coat ceremony at veterinary school. On the way we stopped at a roadside rest station and the kids wanted snacks from the vending machine. I got Little BoyContinue reading “Like that Klondike Bar commercial”
Cats are solitary animals. Our cat, who is named Bunny but we call him Kitty, is used to being the only cat in the house. He is almost 12 years old and has ruled our house most of his life, and he likes it that way. Kitty received a bit of a shock a year orContinue reading “Kitty is at War”
I don’t know why, but my refrigerator is melting. It’s been doing so gradually from the top. I tried googling, “Why is my fridge melting?” but I just ended up with a lot of information about things INSIDE the fridge melting, not about THE REFRIGERATOR ITSELF melting. So what did I do?

I don’t like homeworkContinue reading “I Hate Homework”
I recently downloaded some old-school Taylor Swift to my Spotify playlist and I was listening to it and singing along when I picked up the twins from the middle school. In the passenger seat, Little Girl rolled her eyes and popped in her ear buds. In the back seat I could hear Little Boy tellingContinue reading “I’m still not the cool mom”
I plug my phone in at night near my bed, and usually it’s been on low power mode by the evening since it’s been used all day.
