Caption Contest!!

It's Friday of a short week. Can't really complain about that, can you?? I'm going to start the Contest up again though I expect the turn-out to be low as I'm still new.

So anywho, here is this week's installment. Winner on Monday. Have a great weekend!!

Mallory's 8 months old!!

Well, here's Mallory, already 8 months old! Some things she's accomplished this month include: Cutting another tooth to make two bottom ones. Methinks she's cutting a third tooth on top as her appetite is down and her hiney is all red. Still doesn't drool like Jenna did.

She's very close to crawling; she'll get onto her hands and knees and crawl with her arms but her legs stay put. So it looks like she lunges.

She's rolling like it's going out of style. And she's fast, too! She can pull herself up to her knees and sometimes to a stand. Last weekend I lowered the crib mattress.

She's wicked fast in snatching something off the table or off/from you. She's got this damnable reach; gee, I wonder who she got THAT from!

Jenna likes to try and drag her around to which Mallory squawks her displeasure rather loudly.

Still not sure why we signed up for the second child.....but we're still smiling, even if it's alcohol-induced!

Once again....

I have lost The Mother Of The Year Award......again. I don't think I'm eligible for nomination until Jenna's around 17. She's 4 right now.

Here's how it all played out.....Steve makes a great chocolate chip cookie with chocolate chunks and white chocolate chips and adds a 1 tsp. of Bailey's Irish Cream for good measure. Adds great flavor, but alas, the alcohol bakes out. Phooey.....

I tried (unsuccessfully) to steal some dough as I was chopping veggies to grill last night. Later on as I waitied for the charcoal to get ready I fed Mallory. Steve gave Jenna the spoon with dough on it and gave me the bowl with a spatula.


About a minute later Jenna casually walks up to me with her alluring smile. Her spoon is clean and I'm scraping the bowl.


"NO!! You have a spoon! This bowl is mine! Get away, vulture!" I'm laughing the entire time.

*ahem* Apparently my humor wasn't appreciated by everyone in the room. Jenna shuffled off to a corner in the kitchen and started crying.

Steve saved the day by consoling her and within five minutes she was on Steve's side, accusing me of not sharing.

Great family values we've instilled.....

A Clean Slate

Well, here I am, blogging about the random and the mundane in my life. I was with Spaces for 2 1/2 years. Then one day a couple of weeks ago I couldn't get into my site. So I emailed them.

They responded 3 days later saying that my site was shut down due to inappropriate material and I hadn't responded to their warnings.

Kinda hard to respond when I never received them.... I emailed them a couple more times about what I posted that got their panties in a bind. Still haven't heard from them.....

Those that know me from Spaces know that I have never published ANYTHING inappropriate. Not even remotely risque'. No, I'm pretty much your run-of-the-mill blogger who blogs about the random and mundane.

I thought about just bagging blogging altogether, but there was this little itch, this little tug, to continue blogging about the random and the mundane.

Believe me; my life is pretty mundane. Oh, I try to make in interesting by throwing in stories about my husband and kids. But I am not a MommyBlogger, nor do I aspire to become one.

Don't get me wrong. I love my kids. But there's more to me than them. In the coming posts I'll introduce them to you.

What I'm most disappointed about with the loss of Spaces is 2 1/2 years of archived posts. There's a lot of history that just went up in smoke. Things like our 10th wedding anniversary, my 411, the Westroads Mall shooting in December, the suicide of my father and subsequent posting a year later, nuggets from Jenna as she's gotten older, the 20th anniversary of the drowning of my friend from grade school, rants about my husband, and just random ranting in general.

Here's my chance to start over and create something new.....but there was nothing wrong with the old.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
