The Yellow Brick Road

The Yellow Brick Road

I went to see the Wizard this weekend. Nine times. I’m not complaining. We were exhausted after all those trips, not to mention the practice runs. In the spirit of full disclosure, I didn’t actually make the journey. The Kids did. I got to play Stage Mom. I’m not That Stage Mom, though. I won’t […]

Because I love a list. Especially a random list.

The weather is finally warm. I won’t complain. Many will. Welcome to Augusta. It gets hot. You think it’s hot now? This is nothin’, y’all. It’s May. Just wait until July. If you think July’s hot, buckle up for August. Your brain might explode. Speaking of brain explosions, I thought it was happening to two […]

Augusta Sucks: The most amazing story you’ve ever read

Augusta Sucks: The most amazing story you’ve ever read

Oh! Ha. You’re here. It worked. With flashing headlines and endless tickers across TV screens, and pop-up ads and text messages to distract us from those, it’s no wonder our attention spans are shot. It’s harder to focus. I used to be an avid reader of books. I still love books. It’s a lot harder […]

Right in Our Own Backyard

Right in Our Own Backyard

Field trips are much more infrequent now than when I was a kid. From what I remember, we went on several per year. It was such a treat to eat a brown paper bag smooshed banana and peanut butter sandwich, and my mom always packed a canned Coke, wrapped in tinfoil, to keep cold. Plus, […]

We Got a Puppy

We Got a Puppy

We got a puppy. Yes, he is very cute. He is also a handful. We might be crazy. Ever since Sam, or beloved Weimaraner, died a few years ago, we’ve been thinking about getting a dog. We don’t ever expect to replace him. He was our first. He’d get the newspaper from the bottom of […]

15 in 5 – Golf Edition

If you’re reading this and don’t live in Augusta, welcome to golf week. That’s why you’re here, right? If the weather pans out according to the 10-day forecast, I’m sorry. You missed the perfect weather last week. If the weather people are wrong (and with a 50/50 chance, anything’s possible), you’ll probably notice a fine […]

Free Lunch But Kids Pay

Free Lunch But Kids Pay

Many years ago, when The Boy was four, he went to Pre-K at a church as part of a Mother’s Day Out type program. We loved the program. I could walk my babies to school in our little red wagon. I’m all nostalgic just thinking about it. I can’t think of many things we didn’t […]

Sleepovers are the Pitts

Sleepovers are the Pitts

“Hey Mama, can SuchandSuch spend the night?” Ugh. First of all, if the question is asked in front of SuchandSuch, it’s an automatic no. I think that’s written in the parental code somewhere. Growing up, it was a total deal breaker. In the spirit of full disclosure, I didn’t have people spend the night a […]

Apparently, the U.S. Postal Service is on a hiring freeze. Couple that with an aging workforce with sick and personal days to use before retirement, and you’ve got a bunch of temporary workers wandering the streets with mail. I get it. Are the temps required to recognize numbers? I don’t mean to be a jerk. […]
