A forgotten gem:

A couple weeks ago I took Lily and her friend sledding and we remembered that our sleds were at the old house. I went into the shed to find them and came across this sign, a remnant from Lily's club, Fort Feline. My favorite rules are "Don't touch the cats in any way" (wait, this is called Fort Feline, right?), "No sassing" and "No dinking around".

Annie curled up in my minky blanket. She (or Jackie) sleep with me when Dan's at work.

The day I changed the dog's name from Silver to Damn Dog:

{January 23, 2014}

We came home from watching a wrestling match at the high school to find puke all over the living room floor. Of course, she couldn't puke on the opposite side of the room that has laminate flooring. I spent an hour and a half cleaning the carpet and sprinkled baking soda on all the spots. It absorbed all the water and I vacuumed it up a couple days later.

The only problem is that now a have several really clean spots that stand out. If this were our house, we would replace that carpet with laminate flooring in a heartbeat!

The day after the puke catastrophe, Silver pooped in two tiny spots while we were gone for an hour. Later that night after I simmered down, Amelia asked me, "Mama, did you cry when you found Silver's mess?" 

"I wanted to, but instead I said a swear word."


"Something like that."

Lily pipes in, "Ooh, you said the worse one, didn't you?"


Amelia, eyes big and incredulous, "There's a badder word than the baddest word I know?"


I immediately brought Silver's kennel back in from the shed. She now goes in there anytime we leave. Note the laminate flooring. Where she didn't puke.

Keeping an eye on the neighbors:

Weekend bowling in Afton:

We had to stop one frame early to make it into the movie theater to see Frozen. I bowled Amelia and Mack's last frames for them and Lily was like, "No fair!" Especially since they had bumpers and she didn't.

What an 11-year-old does when she begs off church because "I don't feel good":

We're supposed to get another 8 inches this weekend.

Without the iPhone, I likely would not have taken pictures of many of these everyday things. They may not be the greatest quality, but they document our lives, and for that I am grateful.

Dude, we need to live by you so my kids can have pets vicariously through you. Hmmm, vicarious pets. I'm TOTALLY into that - no hair, slobber, peep, poop, or puke. Amen.
