Remember I said I had pictures that would help explain the start corral hilarity?

Y’all, I cannot EVEN. Continue reading

Yes, I know some of you have seen this already.
Yes, I know it’s unseemly to be so fond of a picture OF MYSELF.

Magically different from how it really was

The Photog was a GENIUS, I tell you

But I don’t normally like pictures of myself.  So, finally having one that I like, I sort of want to paper the world* with it.  And the thing I really like about it, aside from the photog making me look waycrazyprettier than I look in real life?  Is that at the time it was taken, I was actually having EVEN. MORE. FUN. than it looks like I’m having.**

*Apparently my world is damn small, and consists of a Facebook profile, and a blog with 4 readers.

**I KNOW.  The photographer was magical.

Sorta blah being me these days.  Which is not to say I don’t have an awesome husband, and amazing kids, and the best friends EVER.  I do.  And I know it.  And I try to show how much I appreciate them.

I’m just…yeah.  Still that.  Whatever it is. Continue reading

I think I told you that we had a family wedding recently…? When I say “we” I mean 75% of Waltz Family were actually members OF the wedding party.

Guess who got to be one of the flower girls…? Continue reading

Life with a medium large puppy incontinent omnivore is even more chaos than I imagined.



Yeah, I’m speechless.  I think I’ll let the pictures fill out this post with the proverbial 1,000 words each. Continue reading

I don’t know what’s going on with the universe, but wherever I look, cute babies abound.  All over the web?  Check.  At the grocery store?  Check.  At the mall?  Check.  I spent over an hour in Macy’s newborn department last weekend, oohing and ahhing about teeny tiny clothes.  And even though I intellectually knew that I was shopping for shower gifts for pregnant friends of ours, I swear my traitorous ovaries were rioting.  They HURT.  Just from looking at baby clothes!  Okay, fine, also the nomnomnomalicious wee one who was cooing in the infant carrier in her mother’s arms one rack over might have had something to do with it, but still.  I’m beginning to wonder if there’s not some internal coup being staged here.  If perhaps the primordial follicles aren’t starting to get themselves organized, maybe start a union, do some picketing about how no one in the big bad brain bothered to ask THEM if they wanted to be out of work.  Continue reading

It’s Day #2 of no school ’round here, thanks to the blanket of snow that dumped on Tuesday. We’re more than a little cabin fevery, so I was appreciating the quiet instead of doing what a good Mom does when it’s too quiet (wondering what the goats are up to. Duh.)

Goat #2 (coming in to my room, where I am trying [and failing miserably] to get some work done): Mama? Mama, I need headphones.

Me (trying to refocus my attention and not really believing I’ve heard her correctly): Um…you need what? Headphones? Why? Continue reading

So the Christmas Cantata was last night. Goat #1 was “Chicken #1” in the 1st grade play. I can honestly say, 100% objectively, that he was THE. BEST. “Chicken #1” in the history of holiday pageantry. (I can only imagine how great he’d have been if he’d played a goat. Alas, there were no goats in this tale of the Christ child’s birthplace. Horses, yes. Cows, yes. Goats, no. [Which, if you think about it, is crazy. Hellooooooo? Bethlehem? WAY more goats than cows.]) (Also, is anyone else thinking of “Love, Actually” now? I hope he gets to be “Lobster #2” next year.)
