First holiday season in our home

By in Family, Main

Click on my cookie-decorating self to see our Christmas 2010 photo album: This has been SUCH a great holiday season so far, for a lot of reasons. 1. This is our first year truly celebrating the season in this house. Last year we didn’t decorate or put up a tree or exchange gifts. It’s been [...]

A Difficult Week

By in Family, Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

Things to be grateful for this week: 1. My mother had surgery and is okay. 2. Jim wrecked his dad’s motorcycle and is okay. 3. This week at work was awful, and it’s over. 4. Writing meeting today with friends was a great outlet. :) 5. I was not on call this week. 6. My [...]

Things Little Brothers Say

By in Family, Main

Yesterday, Max (7) and Ben (6) explained the following things to me: Ben: "I want to learn to drive a car so that I can drive to the store and get [insert name of favorite candy here] any time I want." Max: "I don't want a girlfriend, because when I drive a car, she will [...]

Bean Brain

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Various family members assured my brother Max on Labor Day that we would give him varying amounts of cash if he ate all of those green beans. I even helped him at one point, but he was thoroughly unsuccessful. What a little nerdy ham, posing mid-nosh… He’s going to be quite a handful, that one.

Easter Pics

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Easter was a pretty great holiday this year. I’ve never really been into it since I’m not really into the whole Christ rising from the dead aspect of the holiday, but I spent the morning in a great discussion at Merging Hearts about the origins of Easter (I particularly love the story of Ostara and [...]

Pics – Christmas and Mom’s 50th

By in Family, Main, Pictures

I’ve finally started editing photos from Christmas and my mother’s surprise birthday party for her 50th birthday… funny how moving and then unpacking will just eat away an entire month of one’s existence. It feels really good to be getting caught up this weekend. Click on present-gleeful Damien and Ben to see my Flickr album [...]

Housewarmings and Laura and Beer, Oh My!

By in Family, Main

HOLY CRAP, it’s cold. I’m sitting at my desk (which is no longer under piles and piles of boxes and various non-unpacked rubble) waiting for Laura to call me to pick her up at the airport, because this weekend is… OUR HOUSEWARMING! I am completely psyched, and our house is in really good shape, considering [...]

Surprise! Where I’m Really At This Weekend…

By in Family, Main

So, I posted fake updates over the past two days about driving to and being at a conference in Columbus, because tonight (I should be there right now when this posts) is my mother’s super secret 50th Birthday SURPRISE Party. The whole family convinced her that we couldn’t be around this weekend (my excuse was [...]

Nuggets: Moving, Holidays, Bdays, Kitty, Fireplace, Family

By in Family, Main, Pictures

- Moving is a time during which it would seem a gal is likely to simultaneously want to thank her husband for all the heavy lifting and also strangle him for constantly just being in the way and putting things in the most ridiculous places. – For Christmas this year, Jim and I made boxes [...]

Max & Ben’s First Mac

By in Family, Main, Videos

iMac geekage from my favorite 5 and 6 year olds. :) My little brothers have their first computer, which I’m happy to report is an iMac. I spent Thursday evening setting it up for them and installing all of the games they wanted to play, and we also spent some time doing a video chat [...]

Update : Work, Family, House, Life

By in Main

Man oh man, has life been busy. Those of you friended up on the LiveJournal will see that this is the 4th wordy post today. I have two days off mid-week from work, and it feels like I finally have time to sit and enjoy some reading, some writing, and some reflection on the past [...]

Pics: Damien Damien Damien!

By in Family, Main, Pictures

I’m kind of in love with my nephew, so I have a tendency to take a ton of pics of him when he’s in town with my sis. It really helped on this particular weekend back in October because it was beautiful weather. Click on any of the shots to see the full set of [...]

Pics: Clippers Game

By in Family, Main

Went with the family to a Clippers game in September and took a few shots (not too many, since this was the day I fell down a flight of stairs and busted my tailbone… I was mostly wandering around like an old lady). My sister is definitely quite the beer-sippin’ baller in this shot. ;) [...]

I’m going on VACATION! I took a full paid week off of work (something I’ve never had enough vacation given to me to do at any other job… very new and exciting for me), we have family coming in from Minnesota (my aunt/uncle and their five kids) and my family (10 people including parents, 5 [...]

Prompt: Am I successful yet?

By in Main, Mental Health

Journal prompt: What do you need to feel successful? I know the question is about what I need in order to feel successful, but when I began to think about my answer to that question, I was more interested in whether I actually feel successful right now, and if I do, what is it that [...]

Pics: Sam’s Birthday Weekend

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Took some fun shots last weekend while my sister Sam was in town. Snapped shots of my nephew, my little brothers, the house, and anything else I could point my DSLR at. :) Getting together with family is almost always a great opportunity to take a few shots with the camera, eh? I also finally [...]

Pics: Tee Ball Game

By in Family, Main, Pictures

A couple of weekends ago, I went to one of my brothers’ tee ball games for the first time. It’s amazing how funny tee ball is… no score, very few kids on the team paying real attention to the game, my brothers remaining completely oblivious to where the ball was at any given moment… it [...]

Sebring Firemen’s Festival: Hogs and Corndogs

By in Main, Pictures, Videos

Jim and I rode out to my mom’s to go with my family to the Sebring Firemen’s Festival this past weekend and I made my first couple Harley videos of the season. :) I have to say, that yearly festival was a lot more impression when I was kid… going as an adult, I just [...]

Weekend Photography Fest #2

By in Main, Pictures

In continuation of my photography love fest, the weekend after Fest #1, I spent Saturday at the zoo with Joe and Amy and their two daughters. I wanted to try my hand at taking shots of some new stuff, and I’d always heard that the Akron Zoo is pretty nice (I actually purchased a zoo [...]

Weekend Photography Fest #1

By in Main, Pictures

So, the past couple of Saturdays, I have had a FANTASTIC time taking pictures and seeing family… you know, the kind where you have no idea how so much great stuff got crammed in and you feel like it’s been three days instead of one? I had a couple of those days in the past [...]

FOP and Jim vs. Cleveland Browns

By in Main, Videos

Jim recently played with the FOP charity basketball game against retired Cleveland Browns players, and Max and Ben (my little brohams) attended. I’m not entirely sure who won the game since it was a charity game for fun, but there were a lot of people, Jim signed autographs (holy famous, batman!) on basketballs, and Max [...]
