The day is spent and so am I

Just a little note to tell you that I am officially worn out.  This is the last week before school starts and I am running on fumes.  Thus, I probably won’t be blogging much.  I probably will once school is up and running and I have my life purring along.… Read More

Potty time

Pardon me for being a bit absentee this week but we’ve been potty training over the last few days. It dawned on me that Jasper will be starting preschool in a few weeks so we need to get down to business. I haven’t been in much of a hurry because… Read More

We’re back from two fun-filled weeks in the Beehive State.  And when I say fun-filled, I mean overflowing with fun every single day; up-til-1:30-every-night fun; so much fun that being home again is a complete let-down (am I the only one who thinks of breastmilk every time they hear that… Read More

Last week our ward was split.   My neighborhood plus a couple of others were sliced off of the mother-ward and combined with a few slices of a neighboring ward.  It will be fine, but there were a lot of really great families in our old ward.   Anyway, we… Read More

Because I’m a loser

I am the block captain for my neighborhood. Technically I’m the “street captain” since we live in suburbia and there aren’t really blocks, just meandering roads. Since I know how sucky it is to be brand new, I love welcoming new families to the neighborhood, and generally having leave to… Read More
