Odd Mom Out


School has been out for about a week, and I am exhausted! I miss my children like crazy when they go off to school, but when they’re home all day and looking at me as if I were the Activities Director of their personal cruise line, I start counting the days until September.

And apologizing to every teacher-friend I have.

In all seriousness, the time together has been great. And because they attend a six-week Extended School Year program each summer, I have to make the most of the next few weeks.

Happy Birthday, Karlynne: An Acrostic


Today I celebrate one of my oldest--though she loves to point out that I'm four-and-a-half months older than she is--and dearest friends. 

Karlynne, this one's for you!

My Original "Home G" and I through the years...

God Don't Like Ugly

I spend far too much time on social media, Facebook and Pinterest being my favorite hangouts. Though some content leaves me clutching my proverbial pearls and wondering what’s wrong with folks, I learn the most in the comments.

(And laugh till I cry at the memes. Seriously, some o' y'all need to quit your day jobs and go into comedy.)

And in the comments, I often find the following phrase:

“God don’t like ugly.”

Seven Random Questions with Jess Molly Brown of "Moms on Missions"

Happy Monday, all!

I am thrilled to share this space today with my sister-from-another-mister, Jess Molly Brown, to celebrate the release of her debut novel! In Moms on Missions, when matchmaking mothers try to fix their children's love lives, the results are disastrous, hilarious, and romantic...not necessarily in that order.

Jess and I know each other pretty well by now, but there's always room for seven random questions. Here we go!

1. Someone is making a musical of the past year of your life. What's it called and what's the opening number?

I think… it would have to be called Too Far-Fetched. The opening number is Are You Sh*tting Me? followed by Tonka Bit Me Seven Times Today. My friends say our household would make entertaining Reality TV. As we have neither money nor fame, that seems highly unlikely. But hey, at least we aren’t boring.
