Halloween Eve 14

Halloween Eve

I left work early yesterday with one of those headaches that have you fighting tears, which makes the headache that much worse. It was awesome. I went home and popped about 2400 mg of ibuprofen (what?) and buried my head under my covers waiting for it to kick in. About 45 minutes later I felt well enough to move and by the time the kids needed retrieving, I felt normal again. ALL HAIL IBUPROFEN! I had a million things I needed to do last night, so I sat NikkiZ down at the table with her present from Scout that she...

Don’t Forget! 30

Don’t Forget!

Or – Don’t Let ME Forget! NaBloPoMo starts SATURDAY. That is a crappy day to start National Blog Posting Month, but I heard that Eden’s efforts to change the calendar this year to move November 1st to Monday didn’t work. (Just kidding! No one tried to change the calendar! I promise!) If you’re going to participate, set up an account at the above link. I think there are some issues going one with friend-ing and such, but if you want – here’s my profile. I would love to be your NaBloPoMo friend! You don’t have to set up an account...

Burrito Casserole 29

Burrito Casserole

Today is the day! I can finally announce my recipe and you all can go and vote for my recipe: Burrito Casserole. I’m so terribly nervous about this because let me remind you: I have NEVER EVER EVER done ANYTHING like this before. Now, they posted my recipe on the site but I wanted to put it here to, in order to properly document this milestone in my life. I’ve also uploaded the receipt to prove that my ingredients cost less than $20. I put a few pictures throughout of the process but I’m not food photographer so I don’t...

Point Taken, AndyZ. 14

Point Taken, AndyZ.

We went all last weekend without a pacifier for AndyZ. I never went out and bought one because I didn’t realize how attached he was to it. I thought he’d just find his thumb (like he does at school) or just not even care to not have it. WAS I WRONG! He spent the whole weekend miserable. The fact that I didn’t go buy new pacifiers until late Sunday is something I’m not sure I can even explain in a way that doesn’t say, “Kim’s a MORON.” But I didn’t. And we suffered so. I’m not sure if he’s just...

Just This Once… 24

Just This Once…

I know I said I wouldn’t talk politics anywhere but my sidebar, but I just had to share something very interesting with you all. Please be tolerant of this as it is only a small bit of what all I’ve wanted to write about on this site. I’m not confident in my skills as a political writer so I’ve stuck to what I know best: Poop and Boob sweat. But as it gets closer (SIX DAYS) I found myself looking at the various news organizations’ predictions. I found something interesting. Let me preface by telling you this: I avoid all...
