“The law is viewed as a business these days–and not as a noble profession. Law firms are operated as banks.” Bobby Lee Cook, ABA Journal March 2009. Even sadder, considering the current state of our banks.

So this is what internet addiction looks like. It’s around midnight and I’m typing this on my cell phone in the pitch dark of the guest room at Bryan’s granddad’s house in Auburndale, Florida. We’re having a great time aside from the internet withdrawal. They have service, but it’s dial-up … and once you go […]
Alright, I think I’m sufficiently removed from this to now reflect on it here. Remember several posts ago when I whined that Karma crapped on my keys? Yeah, well there’s a visual I’ll never use again. On Friday, the kids and I were at the state fairgrounds setting up a information booth/table for the local […]

The other day I posted an entry about The Girl’s new blog. Now Boy Genius has been saying he wants to “blog” too. So, today we changed The Girl’s Fantastic Blog to The BB Blog (it still requires permission because they’re both my babies). Their entries are just a couple of sentences about their days, […]
Ugh! I got a speeding ticket today! I haven’t gotten a ticket in YEARS (like 10, probably)! This sucks. We’ve already been stressing a bit about money, since we’re now paying rent plus our mortgage payment on the house we can’t seem to sell in Tennessee. And now this! I cried…and not to try to […]
“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.” – Guildenstern of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard
A friend posted this on our local mommies forum and, though it took me awhile, I went through the questions with The Girl and Boy Genius. (Bryan swears that he did this same thing with the kids months ago and emailed it to me, but I’m not convinced. Besides, it’s fairly likely their answers are […]
Every day when I pick The Girl up from school, she proceeds to tell me all about her day. Her stories are typically very detailed and pretty entertaining, considering the perspective of an 8-year-old. I’ve been telling her that she should start writing her stories down. She keeps a journal at school, and I’ve read […]
Today (well, actually “yesterday” officially now) was a “lazy day.” Such are few and far between in a world full of kids and dogs, etc., but oh so precious! I slept until 9:30!!! It’s really quite unbelievable to me. I woke up several times to look at the clock, shift pillows or blankets around, let […]
