…but i digress…
a humorous take on my distracted life as a stay-at-home mother and military wife
…and they are ugly. My friends were telling me about these super comfortable shoes called “oofoos,” which honestly sounded made-up to me. I looked them up (Surprise! They are real!) and decided to try a pair. I have to tell you, these rea the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever tried on. And they are SOContinue reading “I got new shoes…”
On the first Sunday morning of the new year, I was going to church with my family. Right away we seemed to run into trouble. When we got there, the church building was shuttered and the parking lot empty. Apparently, the service was online only that day. You know, because of COVID. So we putContinue reading “Happy New Year 2021”
So, it’s been a year since my oldest daughter ET got married. Click for more information on that: (https://christinakosatka.wordpress.com/2019/12/19/so-now-im-a-mother-in-law/) She and her husband decided to go on a tip for their anniversary, and she asked me to come and babysit her kitten, Jellybean. She’s six months old and pretty cute. I figured this sounded likeContinue reading “I guess I’m a kitten’s grandma”
Little Girl (aged 12) came into the kitchen to find a stack of newly-folded (by me) towels on the counter. She was indignant. Her: WHY are you HOLDING the towels HERE? Me: What? Her: There’s only ONE towel in the BATHROOM and it’s DIRTY! And that’s because all the towels are HERE! Me: Okay. Well,Continue reading “An Extra Dramatic Discussion About Towels”
So after the three-plus-months-long homeschool experiment of last school year, I’ve been looking forward to having my kids go back to school IN PERSON. They have given us as parents the option of using a “learn-from-home” model, which of course translates to “you-deal-with-your-own-kid-while-we-force-our-teachers-to-work-with-you-online.” No thank you. That sounds like a nightmare for me AND theContinue reading “These kids had better be going back to school soon”
This was the first Sunday we were able to go back in the church building. We were pretty excited. The church had already informed everyone that masks would be required, and that we would sit distanced from each other in the pews, so we were prepared. When we arrived at the church building and parkedContinue reading “Going Back to Church… IN PERSON!”
Per my previous post about the baby birds who hatched and flew the nest on my front door, we have some news! I noticed an increase in bird poop around my door again, so we looked into the abandoned nest. There were eggs!! It looks like the adult birds even rebuilt the nest a bitContinue reading “Update: More Baby Birds?”
I discovered a nest on my front door wreath with baby birds in it! I was super excited. I taped a piece of paper to the front door to remind everyone not to open it so we wouldn’t disturb the babies. (We usually go in and out through the garage anyways.) The kids and IContinue reading “Baby Birds!!!”
