Mr. Fix It hates having his picture taken, so of course I take it as often as possible.  I’m sorry, but for some unknown reason he thinks he’s not good-looking (whatever!), and I just feel the need to prove over and over (and over) that he’s wrong.  I have one hot husband!  Don’t you agree?

No Distractions

While I was making printable incubation records earlier this week, I decided to revamp my household planning pages – and I thought I’d share them with you also.  I call this my No Distractions Project.  Not too long ago I was reading this book, and on the first day it asked that we make up… Read more »

J Bear 4 Prez

My baby is a politician.  I’m not sure if I should be proud or go into hiding. He came home a couple of days ago and told me he wanted to run.  I was a little nervous about this plan.  I was never involved in school politics.  I don’t have a clue how to campaign… Read more »

J-Bear (name changed) is the baby of my family – although he is 12 years old now, and looking more like a teenager every day! J-Bear is such a fun kid.  He enjoys all things retro.  His iPod is full of classic rock (The Beatles are his favorite).  He loves to learn old games and… Read more »

Meet J-Ella

The next person I’d like to introduce to you is my daughter, J-Ella (name changed). (Senior pictures by Clear Lens Photography.  If you are near Atlanta, they are amazing!) When she was little I used to tease her by singing “J-Ella, Dressed in yella, Doesn’t wanna, Kiss a fella” and she would say “J-Ella, Dressed… Read more »
