Me: Okay. The music is getting louder. It’s time for us to have a conversation. My sister: What is it? Me: If everyone around us starts to dance, are you going to join them? My sister: No. I’m not. Me: Good. Because me neither. Do you see that lady over there? Have you ever done […]

She’s Come Undone

Today is the last day of school. I’ve always preferred the first day of school to the last day. Something about the smell of pencils and the feeling of potential jazzes me much more than the smell of sweat and the possibility of chaos. This morning, instead of going through the circle drive to drop […]

As you know, my orthopedic doctor appointment was scheduled for 9:00 this morning. (Fourteen people just clicked away. That first sentence isn’t very compelling, is it? Here. Let’s move faster.) I shaved my legs this morning. I dropped the kids off at school and hauled it to my appointment so I wouldn’t be late. I […]

The phone rings. I pick it up. Me: Hello? Guy: Angela? Me: Yes. Guy: Hello there! It’s Ben from The Place Where You Bought A Car One Time! Me: Oh! Hi there! Ben: I’m just calling to wish you a happy two year anniversary with the Sonata! Me: Has it really been two years? Ben: […]

The Good, The Bad, and The Adorable

The Good News: I’ve been working on a new wrap. It will eventually look like this. My goal is to make it look like that before October, because the color seems to lend itself well to pumpkin patches and marching band competitions. (I really miss the faded out Levi’s that somehow ended up in my […]

Last Monday I received an e-mail from our pastor asking if I would be interested in participating in our Lessons and Carols Sunday by reading one of the lessons. Because I tend to flip out with this sort of thing, I quickly called Jeff and asked if HE would like to participate in Lessons and […]

You might not know this, but: A lot of things make me cry. Example: I love singing in the car to this song. BUT, when I get to the 2:48 mark? I lose it. AND, when the cat sings, “I know you’re strong”? I nearly have to pull over. (Confession: I just dragged the arrow […]

A few days back, we had lunch with one of Meredith’s friends and the friend’s mom. It was delightful. As expected, the girls decided to plan a play date. (I still hate that term.) Because Friend wanted to meet Scout, we planned the get together for yesterday afternoon at 12:30. (I’ve gone on and on […]

You’ve known me long enough to know that a number of things make me even more anxious than your average overly-anxious bird. My relationship with food is totally cracked. I weigh myself at least four times Every Single Day. If my number goes beyond what is most likely a perfectly acceptable number for me, I […]

Today is the annual Field Day at the girls’ school. Because Jeff is The Athletic Parent and I am The Couch Parent, he took a vacation day to spend seven hours playing outdoor games with the kids. Sadly, yesterday he came home sick with a terrible stomachache and a fever. Because he has an assigned […]
