This was a strange weekend. Very strange, actually, and I’m really out-of-sorts today because of it. Friday night I had a — I feel cheesy and moronic even saying this — so, well, I think I had some sort of demonic encounter. I went to bed at around eleven. The baby didn’t want to sleep [Read More...]

7 Quick Takes Friday!

This Friday would be so much better if I didn’t have the cold from Hell. Seriously. Having a child in preschool is like living with a petri dish of minor illnesses, who likes to snot all over you. It’s awesome. If you’re still reading this after that lovely description, you shall be rewarded with Quick [Read More...]

Daughter of Eve, the Follow-Up

I want to start this post by thanking all of you for your incredible comments on my Daughter of Eve post. It wasn’t exactly an easy post to write; I like to think that my life is a little more together, that I’m thrilled to be a stay-at-home mom, that I find fulfillment in laundry [Read More...]

I Hate Keeping Promises

I make promises all the time. I use the bargain chip of “promise” the way children use the bargain chip of “chubby hug and sweet smile”. This wouldn’t really be a bad thing…except when it comes down to it, I rarely follow through. I’ll always have a very good reason why I just can’t keep [Read More...]

Are We Lying to Ourselves About Lying?

When the Live Action sting was released, I confess that I didn’t watch it. I only skimmed over articles that mentioned it. I know Planned Parenthood, I know their tactics, I know the terrible things that go on there, and quite frankly I just felt like I couldn’t face it anymore. The subject matter, of [Read More...]

7 Quick Takes Friday!

Yay! I love Fridays! And guess what? We’re having the Pioneer Woman’s mushroom and swiss sliders tonight. Oh. My. Yum. They are great. I made them once before, and do you know what’s even better than seeing your husband and minions gobbling up the dinner you made? Having made said dinner in about half an [Read More...]

Ouch, Yawn

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I have two very good reasons for this, and for the fact that this post is probably going to be slightly incoherent and significantly grammatically flawed. First, on Valentine’s Day, I did the unthinkable. I did the thing that most of you do all the time, without [Read More...]

Trying to Write Love

Hands in the morning while the sun struggles through the valiant blinds heavy, flung across our son and me, sleeping yet strong. Fingers curling softly in sleep, each one a thousand pounds sliding my small fingers between them,           your strength surrounds me. Days spent in study, writing, reading,  following Truth on the path to [Read More...]

Sunday Smorgasbord

Again with the Smorgasbord thing. This may become a regular occurrence (it just took me six tries to spell occurrence right), because it seems that by Sunday night my brain flits around like a squirrel on a sugar high. Sienna is a Disaster (Five seconds after this picture was taken, she fell, bit her lip, [Read More...]

7 Quick Takes Friday, plus The Inappropriate Comment of the Day!

Ahhhhh. Friday. Fridays are so much sweeter now that the Ogre’s teaching again. I’m not really sure why because he only teaches on Mondays and Wednesdays and he studies from home most of the time but…somehow they are. It’s a mental thing, I guess. Anyway. Quick Takes! #7 Not-So-Little-Liam is six months old today! It’s [Read More...]
