Christmas begins in the Crazy House

We lost again. But then, we always do. The Javelina’s were handed their wild boar asses this weekend in a massacre befitting the big leagues (see photo below, this was while the other team was running; they're an active bunch...). My daughter’s team, and all of the team mothers and fathers, go to... Sign in to see full entry.

Howdy neighbor!!

I don’t know my neighbors, but I get the feeling they know me. They don’t wave hello and seem to look on with averted eyes as I load my brood into the car each day. I think I know why they don't say hello. I don’t like to yell a lot, so when I do yell I do it loudly, on the grounds that if I yell... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cat... and a nice side view of my toilet....

This is The Cat, Alex has named her Caroline. The Cat has turned into a source of unending interest to Taylor; he spends large chunks of time trying to get The Cat to "Dance, Kit Kat, dance!". Evidently, no amount of The Wiggles and Taylor combined can get a cat to dance. Also notable is my complete... Sign in to see full entry.

Mother knows best. And.. I'm an idiot.

Alex had soccer practice today, and it was going to be chilly so I got the stroller and put it in the Expedition; I chose the double stroller and shoved it into the backseat from the only side of the car accessible when it is in the garage (nothing on the passenger side can be opened in the garage,...

With elbows a-waggin', we made our way through nutball land....

In case you were under the impression that you have met all the crazy people in the world, let me introduce you to the two folks I "met" at the Vet yesterday. As my daughter and I sat there with The Cat in a box and waited (waited well past our appointment time- they really are like people doctors!)... Sign in to see full entry.

Specimens and The Gas Station Diet

I have to go to the doctor tomorrow. The Cat needs to be checked for something or other, I don’t understand Vetspeak and therefore am useless to translate their lingo. Catnip whoozits and litter box whatzits… fine. Bring in a stool sample? Sure, I’ll bring a stool sample… are they kidding? I draw... Sign in to see full entry.

The Griswolds do Vegas

My family is heading to Las Vegas (can anyone say that without adding, “Vegas, baby!”?) for a weekend of fun coming up. No, no, no, not ME, just the rest of my tiny family (ma, pa, brother and that woman to whom he insists he is legally wed). They fare better around slot machines and card tables...

The Cat

The flannel sheets are on the bed, the kids are getting into pj pants with feet and the cat is in the bathroom; it must be Christmastime. Only at this time of year would I be so out-of-my-mind wacko to not only entertain the idea of a pet, but to go out and make that nightmare a reality with the... Sign in to see full entry.

Family game night erupts into slapping

Stop what you are doing. Run, do not walk, to the local toy store and purchase the game Slapwich. Yes, Slapwich. It comes in a tiny little lunch box. It is hilarious. I won’t bore you with the details of the game, but it involves slapping a deck of cards in the middle of a table full of players when... Sign in to see full entry.

So.. smoke alarms indicate dinner is done, right?

My husband gave me a night off and made dinner for the family last night. I am the one who usually puts a meal together, and I have become sort of blasé about the process. I don’t read directions or measure ingredients, and I very rarely consult with the cookbook (I make the same meals over and... Sign in to see full entry.
