Anyone Seen My Mojo?

  I am trying… desperately trying. It seems that many of the things I usually love to do… blogging, photography, cooking, reading, etc. are hidden somewhere among a mass of things that stress me out. Those activities that I deeply love to do are falling into the same categories as cleaning my house, paying the […]

Well, Hello Writer’s Block

I have been sitting here, with my computer on my lap, for the past two hours trying to think of what to write about. For two hours, I have been sitting here and nothing even remotely related to food has crossed my mind. Instead my mind has been wandering to far off places, thinking of […]

Fishy Fish Fish

My family loves fish. Well, I am not sure if that is exactly true. My family loves fish that does not taste like fish. If the fish has a fish flavor, the fish is not loved. However, if I can spice up and drown out the fishy flavor of the fish, then the fish is […]

Just Don’t Think About It

I’m going to start this post off with a self-slap to my face, a shake, and a loud, “Kristen…get a hold of yourself!!!”. I need to pull it together, and I need to do so quickly. I have been an emotional wreck this week thinking about my middle daughter, Kelly, starting Kindergarten. I know this […]

Simplicity

Ugh – in the last couple of days, my computer got hit by some kind of virus or trojan or something. I still don’t know what it was, but it caused serious havoc in my world. To make matters worse, I tried to fix it by downloading what I thought was a legitimate spyware program, […]

The Flame

Kids change everything… they really do. We have three young kids and I would not change having them for anything. They are the brightest spots in our lives and I appreciate having the opportunity to be a mom each and every day. I am not going to lie though… kids do change everything. Going to […]

Lists

I love making lists. I think that is one of the reasons 43 Things is one of my favorite websites. It is all about making lists and marking things off. Sometimes (ok…everyday), I’ll even add something to my daily sticky note lists, just so I can mark it off! After finally finishing my “I Will […]
