The Happyish Homestead

A quick update on things over here:

My blow dryer died. I would like to personally thank anyone who has seen me since the 'incident' and have politely refused to take notice or comment about how things are looking.

We have recently instituted Adeline taking a time-out for even thinking of touching Meg while Meg is on the floor. Desperate times, desperate measures.

Meg is crawling. This may not seem like big news to a lot of you, but over here, it's revolutionary (not in a French-guillotine kind of way). Who knew kids could learn to crawl before they walk, instead of the other way around?

The lime (or lemon) plant, you know the one that had more than two leaves, is.not.doing.well.

I made a sewing table from an old, red, salvaged door. In case you are wondering, I will not be posting a tutorial on that.

I was a great mom over the past two days and helped the girls make burp cloths and blankets for their baby dolls, which I'm sure will never get used. I didn't cry, I didn't make the girls cry, Child Protection Services wasn't called....

I'm tired of wiping snotty noses. Where does it all come from?

Bryce hasn't really said, but I think he's getting tired of losing to me when we play Dominion, which is understandable.

I'm working on a quilt, and as soon as I get it done, I'm going to have a quilt-tying party, and by party I mean, the-kids-destroy-the-house-while-the-moms-tie-the-quilts-and-I-provide-lunch.

I'm excited that next year it's Bryce's turn to plan Valentine's Day.

Does anyone know when Glee starts again?

Bryce and I have rented three really lame movies in a row, I think we're due.

If you follow my blog, I post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with a long drought over the weekend. My agent says I have to manage my genius.

Till then,



  1. What's Dominion? Is this some fabulous card game I know nothing about?

    The next new Glee episode is Tuesday, April 13, 9/8c. Sometimes I get on and search for Glee songs and then I sing them at the top of my lungs pretending I'm as good as them.

  2. I found a new blog to read. Its Its called "This is what I do while they sleep or destroy the living room." Thought you'd like it.


You're a valued reader, thanks for your comments, they help keep me sane....
