Renewing Mercies…A Little Each Day

Starting over from scratch…sorta

Mama Grizzly Bites The Principal


I got a little pissy at Ava’s principal this morning…Here is my rant. I will of course edit it before I send the actual one, but this is my rough draft.  Names “adjusted” to protect the innocent and keep me from getting sued.

To Do List


I don’t like the term “Bucket List”, I’d hope that I can get some of this stuff before I have run out of time and while they may be things I want to do, they aren’t things I have to do before I kick the bucket. Read the rest of this entry »

I Want It NOW!


Strong willed child or spoiled child, apparently according to the great wisdom that is some random Mom’s website that I can’t think of but spams my inbox daily.  Ava’s behavior checked 8 out of 10 of their indicators for a spoiled child.  Great.  Awesome. F—. Read the rest of this entry »

What Are You Doing New Years Eve?


Once upon a time I spent New Years Eve in New York City.  I mean I had fun with Kim looking for everyone we were supposed to have met up with, but overall in terms of how the movies present it, it wasn’t like the movies.  Last year (2011) was kind of a big let down for me in terms of New Year’s Eve.  This time around, I had no big expectations of popping the bubbly at midnight and kissing my husband.  I opened a bottle of champagne when my kids went down for the night at 7:00ish pm, stuffed myself with less than spectacular pastries while watching the movie New Year’s Eve…and was in bed by 10:30.

Vacation – All I Ever Wanted


I’ve been wanting to put thought to blog for a couple weeks…but it just seemed so inappropriate to whine about the insignificant annoyances here, while back home on the East Coast there were those without power, trapped by falling trees and swooshing waters and NICU babies and other fragile human beings needing to be carried down flights of stairs in hospitals without electricity to power their little giraffes (that’s the name of the incubator Ava was in as a newborn…for a little 411).

You’re So Vain


I was chatting with a friend tonight and amongst the spiderweb of conversation, there was something that struck me (of course, something that I said, not that I heard) “If I could go back 10 years, I would tell my 28 year old self to throw out the brownies instead of eating the whole pan.” Read the rest of this entry »

So I Married A Grown Up


It’s a bit late, but it’s been brewing around in my brain for a bit, I suppose we could call it a french press and pay homage to the Rondeaus and Brunettes in my lineage…or we could just call a spade a spade and I could own up to procrastination. Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Birthday to Mommy….Happy Birthday to Meeeee


Ah, 37…you were nice to me, even though I’ve been talking about turning, *gasp* 38 for like 6 months.  I feel like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally  “…and I’m turning 40!!!”  “When?”  “Someday!”  40 will be nice, I would like to go on a cruise…we should start saving now.

Seriously? Seriously


I think I’m going through Grey’s Anatomy withdrawals.  Oh, to find out what happens after the plane crash…will Derek lose his hand, and how dare they kill off Lexi?  She was the best one!


Alrighty, on to the slenderizing progress…I mean, 25 pounds? Come on! Totally unfair. Read the rest of this entry »

Go-ing Doooooowwwwwnnnn


Ah Aerosmith, I do love you long haired old guys from Massachusetts.  Thank you Steven Tyler for leaving American Idol and taking J.Lo with you so I don’t feel I have to watch it anymore.  Also, thank you Mariah Carey for joining the judging panel, to cement my decision to stop wasting time watching that show.
