Frisbee Anyone?


No scotch tape was involved in the making of this photo.  The moment I pushed the camera button the Frisbee got caught on a loose puppy tooth. Can't wait for each and every one to fall out of Roxy's pretty little head...she gnaws everything she can get her mouth on.

By a nose...

Go ahead. Open up that box of tampons and take out a couple and shove them up each nostril. And you'll pretty much get the idea of what they pack your nose with after sinus surgery. I haven't been able to breathe out of my nose since my ENT fixed my deviated septum and several other sinus issues five days ago.   Try taking a deep breath, sleeping sitting up or eating a plate of spaghetti while wearing nasal tampons and a large gauze mustache. I'd give anything to yank this stuff of my nose but I have another  f-o-u-r days until my post surgery appointment. Will I make it or will my husband find me passed out on the floor after a failed attempt attempt at nasal tampon removal?

Damn It

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Last night my almost 5-year-old daughter used a profanity. Well, sort of. She didn't drop the F bomb but she did express her displeasure at my husband when he told her before bed he wasn't going to read yet another book to her. So Natalia walked out of the room and right on cue uttered two words, "Damn it".

Made me wonder if she used to sneak downstairs in the middle of the night when she was three and watch back-to-back episodes of "24".

My Favorite Moment of the Week

While everyone's been focused on the kick-ass ladies of the U.S. World Cup soccer team...their younger counterparts were putting the boys to shame off the field...in the science lab.
