Alone Time

Alone Time

This weekend my family took a quick spur-of-the-moment trip to Austin.  Sadly (*ahem*), I had a doctor’s appointment and couldn’t make the trip.  My husband wanted to know if I minded them going without me.  I told him I didn’t mind at all, and that honestly, alone time had its appeal.  (A LOT of it!)

I'm Still Here!

Okay, so I’m the worst blogger EVER, but I am so thankful for Mama Tutu’s patience with me.  First, I am more of a talker than a writer anyway…….maybe I should do a podcast?!?  Raise your hand if you’d like to see a Mama Train Podcast. :) The truth be told, I have PLENTY of […]

Ramblings

The blog has been neglected this week.  For good reason – we were out of town on a family vacation and Amanda is pregnant and has three boys – two of them who are 2 – so she has a permanent excuse for not blogging more often. So, it’s the end of a long day, […]

The Good Wife

When I was *cough* very young, and a bride-to-be, there was an article circulating that was said to be from a 1950s textbook called “The Good Housewife.” In fact, it was read at one of my bridal showers – by a preacher’s wife – and we all got a good laugh about how ridiculous it […]

Pregnancy After Infertility

So most of you know the story. In the fall of 2000, Ryan and I decided (that is so funny to me now; as if we had any control over the matter) to start trying to have a baby. We got pregnant during the summer of 2001 and lost the baby early in the first […]

I Think I Need a Reward Chart.

I’m a “carrot” kind of gal.  Dangle a carrot in front of me, and I’ll work to get it.  I’m not going to lie, I like recognition.  Like, really like it.  I mean, come on, let’s be honest… who doesn’t like to be told how wonderful you are?  We all do.  I’m competitive at heart. […]
