Family

We went to St. Louis over the weekend.  One of Dan’s brothers and his family were in town for a few days, so we took the opportunity to see them, as they live quite a distance from us.  It was fun to see everyone and we were happily surprised that a) we were able to […]

Green

In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, the kids didn’t have to wear their uniforms to school today.  I had to rush around this morning (’cause, you know, I like to plan ahead), after getting very little sleep last night, trying to find green for everyone.  Or orange.  (???) I did pretty well.  Everyone had green […]

Rules

Yesterday morning I had a doctor’s appointment.  Thankfully, Bert* gets to use sick time to cover the kids for me when this happens.  My appointment was early, so Bert took the kids to school so I could get a shower in beforehand. Bert has taken the kids to school before, so (despite my control-freak nature) […]

Weekend Roundup

January 12th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Adventures, Dads, Home, Moving, Parenting

This weekend was an unusually busy one. We kicked things off with the whole, dog bloat-kid puking thing late Friday night.  That was fun! On Saturday it snowed.  Again.  A lot.  A FOOT.  I had thought that we’d already seen as much at one time that we’d see.  Ha.  Oh, and we’re due more this […]

The Full Monty

September 8th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Family, Moving, Parenting

Our neighbors might not think so, but I’ve really been trying hard to keep it under wraps that the Clampet family that has moved into Casa Amarilla here in Chicagoland. Despite my efforts, though, I think we might be leaving too many clues. Like all the yelling that goes on with four little kids and […]

Casa Amarilla

September 4th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Family, Moving, Rougher days

Sounds pretty, doesn’t it? Don’t forget to roll those l’s when you say it. I figure I need a pretty label for this house. It sounds nice and warm, sunny and happy. Something to combat the dark cloud hovering above us. Which Will. Not. Go. Away. Each time we see some blue sky peaking through, […]

To Laugh or to cry…

…That is the question. There’s a fairly new show on HGTV where people who are thinking about buying a house spend the night in it first to try it out. Right. Like anyone is going to let you do that. Plus – what a hassle, right? Well, I’m starting to see the brilliance in that […]

Here it is

August 24th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Family, Moving, Parenting

Okay. So, here it is. Our big yellow house. It definitely needs some work, but it’s not a fixer-upper, either. Lots of room for the kids. Our first order of business is a new kitchen and we’ll hopefully get started on that in the next couple of months. After that, it’ll be a little here, […]

Fitting In

August 22nd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Family, Moving, Parenting

Well, we own it.  Finally.  It’s not perfect, but we’ll make it perfect for us. We all went to the house this morning to look it over before the closing at 11.  Since there is NO WAY we’d be dumb enough to take the kids to closing, I signed over power of attorney to Dan […]
