Black Friday Stresses Me Out

Hows the Black Friday shopping going? I love saving money, and I use coupons on almost everything.  If it's not on sale or I don't have an extra 20 percent off coupon, I don't buy it. Unless it's coffee.  Gotta have that at all costs. I've already messed up this money-saving adventure called Black Friday, and here's how.

Anyone Else Invited To The Ex’s House For Thanksgiving?

This is my second Thanksgiving as a single lady.  My ex and I ended things in the summer of 2013, and with three kids it's been important to us to get along and maintain a good relationship, and let it evolve into something new.  We're both much happier apart, an although we weren't right for each other as spouses, we genuinely care about each other and have been able to find places for each other in our lives as we move on.  And I'm going over there for Thanksgiving!  Is this a good thing?

A Birthday Girl Who Doesn’t Eat Cake, And Other Random Thoughts

Well here it is...my birthday, and the reason 9 and 17 are my favorite numbers.

Birthdays are good excuses to measure progress and set new goals I think, kind of like New Year's Eve only I'm the only one who's doing it today.  Unless you're a Virgo too, and in that case you're probably making your own thoughtful list, you independent, analytical, reliable, observant, perfectionst, you.  Happy Birthday to you.

Does The Tooth Fairy Come If You Literally Lose The Tooth?

 

If you have a 6-year old like I do, chances are the tooth fairy makes regular trips to your house.  Where does the he/she get all that money? The tooth fairy leaves on average, $3.70 per tooth. Sounds cheap, but these kids have more than one tooth, ya know?

Finley lost another tooth last night on the way to softball practice, and that led to an unexpected meltdown.  Here's why.

First Day Of School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends said just now, "Um...Did school start?"  Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

This Is Why You Shouldn’t Throw Away Your Old Junk

I'm moving to a new house right now and my whole life is in boxes.  Well, actually, I'm out of boxes and I'm waiting on a friend to respond to my begging and bring me more because she professes to have some sort of connection to the black market of boxes. I'll wait.

I was cleaning out the attic yesterday and ran across this old jewelry box that I had when I was twelve or thirteen and kept into high school.  I opened it up and took out a couple of polished rocks that my uncle Mel made into necklaces back in the day, and then I threw the jewelry box in the trash because it was full of junk.

Then my beloved 4-year old that makes this blog so frequently with her unique antics, dug it out of the trash and said, "Mama look!  Treasures!"
