I've had writer's block for about 2+ years now. Not because I don't have anything to say, it's just that there is always too much to catch up on for one post and I never know where to start, so it feels overwhelming. But  I  want to be able to pop in and blog occasionally without the awkwardness, so I'm just going to throw it all out there and see where we land.

Ten on Tuesday. Buckle up. 

1. Tonight when I was eating dinner, I think I inhaled a piece of rice. Not into my lungs, like up into my nose somewhere. I'm pretty sure it's still there. Can your body absorb a piece of rice through your nose? I'm hoping yes because I haven't had to confess to a doctor that I have something up my nose since I was seven and I really don't want to start now. 

2. There was a time in my life *cough*last year*cough* when I felt bad for moms who told me they homeschooled. I couldn't wrap my brain around how they could wear that many hats and get everything done and not go a little crazy. God thought that was funny, so he made me a homeschool mom. 

3. I'm pretty sure that any blog posts that come down the pike from me in the near future might be homeschoolish in nature. So, apologies in advance and no hard feelings if you unsubscribe. 

4. Rowan is 7 now (I know, time flies) and he's been heavily hinting for months that all he wants in the world is a dirt bike or a guinea pig. He follows this up quickly with, "And since I know dirt bikes are way too expensive and probably not safe, I will be very happy with my guinea pig." I'm not sure if that was some sort of jedi voodoo he pulled on me or what, but here we are 36 hours till Christmas and I have a guinea pig living in my closet. Rowan is going to have a hard time wrestling it away from his dad, though.

Why is he in a bathtub, you ask? Why WOULDN'T he be in the bathtub is my response.

5. Speaking of my husband-- he's decided to become a beekeeper. I thought maybe this was a passing fancy, so I picked up bee library books to show my support... next thing I know there was a bee hive being delivered to my house and all kinds of beekeeping paraphernalia. I'm still trying to catch him in his bee suit so I can take a picture, but he's wily and thus far has eluded me.  

6. I was looking through pictures on my phone trying to decide what to include in this post, and found this inexplicable picture of Sarah Palin with random bearded dude. I've puzzled and puzzled until my puzzler was sore, and I still have no clue where it came from. That makes it funny...and weird... seriously, those are some sassy pants and shoulders. Where did this come from?!

7. Remember these cute stars I bought in 2010

This is the first time EVER we have gotten them hung as I originally envisioned for Christmas. My husband did it all on his own and he did good. 

8. I recently read this book to the boys as part of our homeschool curriculum. It was a booger to read (hard dialogue, lots of voices), but it lights up my day when I hear them discussing Pooh Bear and my youngest two are in an unspoken bouncing competition. They each want to be crowned Tigger because  the wonderful thing about tiggers is he's the only one.

9. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!

10. I'm too tired to think of a tenth thing for this post. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!


  1. Oh girl, I love your Grinch quote tie in! Seeing J in the tub makes me think of photos you would see of moms after they have a water birth and that just made it all the more funny to me:)! Your stars look great and I am bummed that I never made it past your entry way to see how you decorated when I was last at your house so I could see them in person, oh well ;)! Maybe you will delay in removing your decorations just for me. Your Sarah photo is classic, your kids must have snapped that one while they had your phone or something ;).

  2. AND SHE'S BACK!!!!! I have all kinds of warmth and happiness filling my heart right now!! YAY! Sorry about your rice sinus.

  3. Happy New Year Kira!!! Lots of fun reading this post :-) And those Christmas stars look Brilliant! (good job J!) I am also so impressed with the scrolling instagram thingy! I'm sure you are going to tell me "it was easy" but no matter what, your technical skills never cease to amaze me!

  4. I've missed reading your blog posts! Looking forward to more :)

  5. Obviously I'm behind in reading blogs, but just wanted to say how nice it is to see you here. My sister, mom, and I still quote Pooh to one another. Books read aloud by moms are the very best kind. Happy 2015.


I adore reading your comments; they bring sunshine to my day. Thanks for reading!
