New Year, New Prayers, New Mice in the Pantry

Oftentimes I write this blog at my favorite coffee shop. I seem to get inspired there, for some reason. Maybe it’s the white chocolate mocha that I pay entirely too much for or all the bouncy college girls in their leggings and messy-on-purpose hair that make me feel sort of  almost halfway slightly bouncy (though I can’t pull off the messy hair. And the leggings… just no.) But today I [...]

Hoping in Houses (and other Forms of Hooey)

With the exception of our sweet Fish Stick (who somehow grows more delicious on a daily basis) we are midway through a month of celebrating the births of our entire clan. See? What'd I tell you? Delicious. As I write, Christian is turning 3 and, in his revelry, most likely striking someone somewhere with something. It’s his favorite way to celebrate. Josh’s birthday was the day before Christian’s [...]

This won’t be long. I don’t have time for long these days. The kids and Josh and the dog and I have stuffed ourselves and our gobs of stuff into my parent’s house.  We are so very grateful for their hospitality, but we are on top of each other here and I’m questioning what kind of logic I was using when I brought along 14 pairs of shoes. Josh is [...]

It’s Not About the House

Well, this happened a few weeks ago. First grade. Sniff, sniff.   And then this happened. Fact: They will still let you buy farms even when your hair is really, really greasy. (And your pictures are really, really blurry.) Which equals this: Moving day. More sniff, sniff.  (Also, I had no idea we were so junky. I blame Josh Hall.) And add in Toothless [...]
