Back-To-School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends posted this on Monday, "Um...Did school start?" Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

Road trips are great, right?  The weather is awesome, you roll down the windows and crank the music, and there is no stress at all.  Yay!  That was how is used to be before kids.  And then those little needs - constant needs - change the dynamic of the car for the rest of our lives.

Kids! Mama Got Roped Into Getting Another Pet.

Kids always want a pet it seems. My three daughters seem to rotate the duty of asking for a new pet, even though we have a miniature schnauzer named Harry and he's a good boy and not in danger of losing his role in the family. When I point out that we could just settle in and be content with Harry, they inevitably ask, "Ok, but when Harry dies, can we have a cat?"

I don't know whether to be upset, or just be thankful that they are forward-thinkers who are already planning for the future and setting lofty goals. It's the little things.

I finally caved and bought a fish. I too love aquatic life and supported the girls in their $4 decision to invest in Maddox the Betta. But here's why I'm having pet regret.

This Is Why You Shouldn’t Throw Away Your Old Junk

I'm moving to a new house right now and my whole life is in boxes.  Well, actually, I'm out of boxes and I'm waiting on a friend to respond to my begging and bring me more because she professes to have some sort of connection to the black market of boxes. I'll wait.

I was cleaning out the attic yesterday and ran across this old jewelry box that I had when I was twelve or thirteen and kept into high school.  I opened it up and took out a couple of polished rocks that my uncle Mel made into necklaces back in the day, and then I threw the jewelry box in the trash because it was full of junk.

Then my beloved 4-year old that makes this blog so frequently with her unique antics, dug it out of the trash and said, "Mama look!  Treasures!"
