Summertime. I love it! The days are warmer. The days are longer. After the craziness of spring, it’s nice to have some time to breathe.
This spring we were running ragged. Lacrosse games, dance recital, team parties, class parties, getting ready for graduation, AP tests, finals, grad gifts, teacher gifts, blah, blah, blah. The last [...]
For some odd reason, I hear circus music playing in the back of my mind. And you know what I realize? My life is a three-ring circus. Or is it six rings? It’s a circus because it’s May. The month of May will make the crustiest, most veteran mom want to curl up in the fetal position and bawl like a newborn. I’m not [...]
Its May, which signifies many things to many people, Mother’s Day, end of the year partys, concerts, plays, dreaded tests, and an anniversary or two. As with every other month, unless you are single (and maybe then, too) you are busy, busy, busy, running around like crazy and forgetting about numero one…umm, yes that is YOU! At our house, [...]
Having children can sometimes be like stepping into a cold shower or looking into a mirror. They will shock you by imitating things you’ve done or said, and they reflect your actions in how they look at problems and how they handle responsibilities. Sometimes, it is a refreshingly cold shower, and then you get out and look in the mirror [...]
You know, some blog postings are harder than others. It’s trying to get over that writer’s brick wall that can loom in front of me that makes writing interesting. This month is an easy one.
November is a special month.
Nov. 9 is our Founders’ Day. We are 138 years young. 138 years of women [...]
“Who are these kids, and why are they calling me mom?”
Ha! I love that line. Since fall is in full swing, that is how I feel at the end of the day. But wait, hours before I literally crash my head onto my pillow…while I’m driving said children hither and yon…I remember [...]
Most people accept that Southerners have their own way of doing things, and that we don’t really care about what others think. (If you haven’t watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, you should. It is a very extreme version of this attitude.)We have our traditions, and you can either lead, follow, or get out of the way.
I love football! (and I’m not talking about the kind that has a round black and white ball) It is a way of life in the South. As far as sports go, there is football and then there is everything else that serves as a distraction until football season starts again. Living in Alabama, we are spoon [...]
…they can also be used for jewelry and as bookmarks.
So lately I have been doing a lot of food, and this time I thought I would try something different. Every member in my family has some form of a spoon ring. I think they are absolutely beautiful. To know that you are wearing something [...]
Hopson and I often hear how lucky we are to have such a great family. We have been happily married for over 18 years and have four beautiful, healthy, wonderful, funny, obedient children. Am I blessed? You know I am… way more than I deserve. But I also know it has nothing to do with luck. It has everything to [...]
