Let me tell you what I think

I have all sorts of opinions. It seems like hardly a day goes by that I don’t develop some stance on some issue. It’s amazing what having a mind of your own can do, you know. First off: The Hunger Games. Lord, thank you for making the movie decent. So...

Well THAT got awkward

You know how when you’re having a conversation with someone, and sometimes then there’s a lull? And then seconds become minutes and the longer you both go without saying anything, the more awkward it gets? Well, it’s kind of the same with blogging. The longer you go without blogging, the...

My Take: iPad 2 vs. Kindle Fire

Okay, I tried and I simply couldn’t resist. Yes, when I decided to get the Kindle Fire, I was thinking it would be an adequate replacement for the iPad, which I thought of as too expensive. And before I really get started, I want to give full disclosure. Kile and...

In defense of the Christmas movie remake

This afternoon while trying to kill some time before dinner, we watched “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”  You know, the one starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch.  This movie gets a lot of flack from people who believe it’s a sacrilege against the original Grinch cartoon.  I don’t think this...

Don’t discriminate against my kids!

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have seen that there is a “movement” out there for establishments and such to declare themselves “child-free”.  This mostly pertains to restaurants but I’ve seen movie theaters, stores and airlines mentioned.  This is a loaded issue, folks.  Of course I get it that...

A day or two early: Sayonara 2010

This year was… poor.  I mean, in the grand scheme of things, nothing horrible happened to me specifically this year.  But yet again, I saw a lot of crap happen to other people.  And then my general feeling of malaise not only persisted but seemed to grow and fester and...

Schtuff

We’re counting down the days until we can finally kick DirecTV to the curb once and for all.  And they’re doing their level best to make sure we don’t miss them.  The freezes are getting worse and now missing chunks of the “guide” are a normal and expected occurrence.   This...

Great, Awful and Meh

On the whole, I’d say this weekend was a good one.  No, a GREAT one.  I ask a lot of my weekends, as a rule.  I want relaxation, entertainment, fun and harmony.  It’s hard to have that, every single weekend.  But I think this weekend came close.  Still.. it wasn’t...

Curling my Toes

So it’s a FRIDAY (and thank GOD for that) and I feel the weight of the week being lifted already.  In celebration, I wanted to post something kinda fun and entertaining today.  And since I miss the Friday Eye Candy post over at MamaPop, I’m going to do my own...

The Blessed Hours

My favorite time of any day is after the kids are in bed at night and it’s just Kile and I hanging out together.  Usually we’re watching tv or a movie.  I’m knitting, he’s playing around on his iPhone or laptop.  But we’re together and it’s peaceful and we can...
