Running for a cause

This morning, my friend, Steph, and I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. We did the untimed 5K, so there wasn’t any pressure. We started on the Summerfest grounds and ran to Veterans Park along the lakefront. It was a cool morning, and overcast, but it was perfect for running. The time […]

How old is he???

I wasn’t going to write about this***, but since it happened TWICE tonight, I had to get it out.

Noah has been potty trained for 2 years now. (Now you know where I’m going with this…) He’s (usually) dry all day and all night. I don’t have to help him in the bathroom, at home […]

School days

I just had my first test in my photography class tonight. I was really nervous about it. It’s been 7 years since I’ve had to take an exam! And the last one I took was a doozy-my PT board exam. I wouldn’t wish those four hours on my worst enemy!

Turns out I had nothing […]

I can’t believe I let this happen

Tonight, I had a momentary lapse of reason.

We were at a 40th birthday party for Don, a co-worker of Andy’s. Don and his family are very much into hunting. The front room of their home has about 5 deer heads, a goose, a fox with some bird in it’s mouth, a duck, 2 […]

First days of school

Finally! School has started for the boys! After most of our other friends started last week (and the week before for a few (unlucky :)) friends, it’s been a bit of a waiting game for us. The boys love school, so they’ve been asking, “How many days now?” for a while.

Monday was Caden’s first […]

Where’s Dylan?

I just got done watching the new “90210” on my DVR. Is it weird that I’m totally into it, and I can’t wait until next Tuesday?

But I miss Dylan and Steve and Janet and David…not so much Donna. It’s nice to be back in the old zip code!


On Sunday, we took a family bike ride, and Noah insisted on riding his bike. His left training wheel doesn’t hold very well. We had raised it so he had to balance more, but the screw is loose or something, so the wheel slides back down so he’s riding on it almost constantly. So I […]

Frugal or cheap?

This morning, Noah woke up with a very red eye and a crusty nose. I’m fairly certain he has pink eye. Ugh. Of course it would happen on a holiday! My kids don’t get sick or hurt on regular days, just weekends, after hours, or holidays.

Anyways, I wasn’t going to do anything about it, […]
