What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Many of you know by now that we are helping my brother out.  He is in a rehabilitation facility near us as he overcomes his drug abuse.  Two days before Pie Palooza, things were not good at all.  Everyone tried to offer help, but he was just not in the right place.  Two days after […]

I have now sat down four different times to try and finish this post.  It’s been one crazy month, but we knew that when we were getting into it, and well, here we are!  At the end of January, I found the opportunity for us to take a trip to go down to St. George/Las […]

Pie Palooza 2013

Pie Palooza 2013

What an incredible couple of weeks.  We spent the week before Pie Palooza, cleaning up, organizing, making pies, and getting ready for Dovy to head to London.  Pie Palooza was a smashing success!  I think we had somewhere between 50 and 60 people come through during the evening.  Everything was delicious and awesome and fun.

Even though my calendar doesn’t say that I did anything too extreme this week, I still feel exhausted.  I’ve had to take a three-day hiatus from my intense weight-loss program (counting every calorie.)  I’ve still exercised, but I’ve needed to just relax for a few days to take everything in.  Dovy will for sure be […]

I’ve had sick kids this week.  They are pretty much healed now, but I’m still trying to fight it off.  I’ve been gargling Listerine for five days now in the hopes that the slight symptoms I have will go away and kill the cold. Lots of good news this week!  I lost 3.4 lbs! It […]

Pie Palooza 2012

Pie Palooza 2012

Well, another Pie Palooza has come and gone. To shake things up, my oven decided to stop working on Monday morning when I had 12.5 pies left to bake. Lame. The keypad went out and the lady on the phone with General Electric that obviously didn’t speak English as her first language tried to convince […]

Pie Palooza 2011

The following picture was a test of mommy’s sanity this week: Because, see, the crayons used in this picture were not the washable Crayola kind. How do kids sniff these things out? Did it have to be THAT black crayon? Of course it did. So, the three-year old helped clean it all up… Needless to […]

Husbandless

Busy, busy, busy. This week, I have enjoyed reading Percy Jackson, planning for Pie Palooza, choir, marketing, cleaning – okay, not that one so much – organizing, playing with my kids, and being with my cousins, because my sweetheart was in Boston this weekend! He flew out on Friday to be there for his grandmother’s […]

Strike!

This week has been… fun. Potty training did a nose-dive into the mud. Anjali filled up her entire “Big Girl Bathroom Chart” and earned a new Car, and then promptly decided she was finished, even though we started a new chart with the promise of another Car. Hmmm. Now what? She won’t play with baby […]
