Mom Humor: Of Husbands, Garbage Men & The Word Yes

Mom Humor: Of Husbands, Garbage Men & The Word Yes

Two years ago, when my mom suffered a debilitating stroke that left her unable to live by herself anymore, my husband suggested she move in with us. Knowing that my mom would be requiring a lot of my time, he willingly took on the lion’s share of the activities for our two daughters.

Two years ago, my mom moved in with us. She’d had a stroke and was unable to live by herself any longer. She wasn’t, however, ready to call Shady Pines her new home for the next umpteen years. We had the space and our house had several handicap accessories in place from the previous owners.

Prior to this particular summer, I lived in a very dark time. I lived in a time where I was constantly on edge for fear of hearing the dreaded words, “I’m bored.”

Mom Humor: Pinterest Vs. My Family

Strangely enough, every winter, I get a real hankering to be in the great outdoors. I want to breathe air that’s not tainted with exhaust or staleness. I want to walk away from technology and reflect upon days of yore when 24/7 screens weren’t a thing. I want to cook bacon over an open fire first thing in the morning and I want to drift off to dream while watching the same fire embers slowly fade into ash.

My husband has never been a conventional gift giver. The very first gift he ever gave me he won in a random drawing and pawned it off as his own gift. That’s right, the first gift was a re-gift. It was a tennis bracelet, so I’m not complaining but it was a re-gift just the same.

Ahhh … the annual Christmas card race, um, I mean exchange. It’s a favorite holiday tradition. Beginning in October (or April), I start planning the outfits that my children will wear. I book the photographer. I scour the websites for the best design and I update my card list.

Growing up, my uncle and his wife would host Thanksgiving at their home in Dallas. When we got together with them in Dallas, it was nothing short of proper.
Mom Humor: Cleaning House

Mom Humor: Cleaning House

My girls sandwich the holidays with their birthdays. My older daughter was born in November and my younger daughter was born in January. One might bemoan the fact that we have approximately 10 straight weeks of celebration, but not me! I revel in the fact that we have approximately 10 straight weeks of a clean house.
Mom Humor: Someone Phone Home!

Mom Humor: Someone Phone Home!

Truthfully, I don’t remember the whole ordeal—and that’s part of the problem. I do recall my teenager and I standing toe-to-toe, figuratively, and my drawing the proverbial line that she was not to cross. And then, because she’s a teen, she crossed it. As a result, I took her life.
Summer Is Made for the Last Minute

Summer Is Made for the Last Minute

Back to school time … ahhh! That sweet time when we say goodbye to late mornings and late nights and hello to fruit bars hastily unwrapped and called breakfast as we dash out the door hoping to not get a tardy so early in the academic year.
