All in the Right Perspective

Father Hugh told a joke a few weeks back. Now, I know what you’re thinking… priestly humor? Come on! But here me (or him) out. It’s a really good joke, and it leads to an interesting discussion in perspectives. Here it is: There was a guy who had a lot of riches. Lots of money,Continue reading “All in the Right Perspective”

It’s National Dress Your Pet Up Day 2022!

Who doesn’t like adorable pups dressed to impress, or at least to put up with their humans?

What is Your Favorite?

We were having a discussion, Child #’s 2, 3, and I (child #3 being home sick from school today) regarding our favorite foods. Child #2 didn’t want to say. I’m like “Why not? Mine is chocolate.” She replied that hers was not. I couldn’t believe it! We come from a long line of incredible chocoholics.Continue reading “What is Your Favorite?”

Things to Pass the Time

What do you like to do if you ever find yourself with free time? For me, I like to read, to sing, or to clean. Clean? You say. Really? Yes. Clean. Now, I’m not saying that my house is immaculate. Ha! Ha! Ha! That’s actually really funny! I feel like I am always chasing afterContinue reading “Things to Pass the Time”

Most Embarrassing Moments

Ok. We’ve all had them. Some of them are mortifying. Others we feel sure we will never recover from. Some of them make us smile (especially if it happened to someone else or it’s been many years!) Some of them just make us shake our heads. I am going to share two of my veryContinue reading “Most Embarrassing Moments”

You’re Mean…I Love You!

Yesterday (and yes I apologize for not writing on my scheduled Thursday!) I was hanging out with my two oldest kiddos. Child #1 hugged Child #2, who immediately struggled to get away. Child #1 then said to Child #2 “You’re mean …I love you!” Now if that doesn’t sum up their entire relationship, I don’tContinue reading “You’re Mean…I Love You!”

Spatchcocked Chicken

What? What was that title? Yes. You read it right. We are going to talk about spatchcocked chicken. You’re doing what to a chicken? Spatchcocking it. Basically, we are taking out the backbone of said chicken, and making it lie flat on the pan/grill/frying pan. What are we after? Faster chicken!!! No, I am notContinue reading “Spatchcocked Chicken”

The Great Deodorant Debate

Here’s a subject I’ll bet you never thought I’d cover! It has come to my attention in our home, that there is a great deodorant debate. Some of us like stick deodorant; others prefer gel; I don’t think many of us have even considered spray. Also, is the debate over men’s versus women’s. Yeah. WeContinue reading “The Great Deodorant Debate”
