Making Mommy Laugh

With the economy in the toilet, some desperate folks decided to ... steal all the copper wiring from the community park where the Bear has football practice.

No biggie you say? It's a huge deal now that the sun is setting earlier and earlier. It's been two weeks of shorter practices.

The lights were ALL fixed over the weekend.

The coaches were ecstatic to say the least since we're in the playoff rounds.

My daughter? Here's her reaction...

Prinny: Mom! It's too bright out here!

A first for me

As a kid you come across new things all the time.

You have tons of "firsts" when you're young.

As you get older, it becomes more and more rare to do something you haven't done before.


I did something I'd never done before.




I had a Brazilian.


Even though my life is in turmoil, I went in and had a Brazilian wax.

I'd been contemplating it since the summer. Hemming and hawing but never made it in.

But then I read Amanda's post and just scheduled an appointment.



Did it hurt? No. Not really. There was one split second of pain but the rest was mainly just uncomfortable.

What caused that moment of pain? It was a strip at the very front that's as far south as you can get before you hit your womanly parts.

Do I have a patch? No. I am totally bare.

How do I feel now? It is so strangely smooth. I'm pretty amazed how smooth it is.

Would you do it again? I'm actually paid up front for 12 more visits!


I may have turmoil going on in my life right now but I did something new. Something just for me.

Football continues

My life is still in shambles but at least there's football to keep me (and the kids) busy.
