Stinky

My house reeks.

We are finally in the home stretch of having the lower level completed – only a few weeks left to go. Right now they’re working on staining the wood, and goodness me but there is a lot of wood down there to stain.

Thankfully we’re doing this in April, when I can open a few windows and let the house breathe, and not in the chill of December (when the weather is more like this).

Whenever I think of the word ‘stinky’ my mind goes to the movie Green Mile. They’re all on death row, and the crazy guy in the corner cell starts singing, “Barbeque, me and you, stinky pinky, pew, pew, pew.” Yeah, a little morose. But it happens every time.

Do you connect random things with old movies?

Except for the… [Continue Reading]

  • Snuggle me Snuggly. Snuggle Me Snuggly is one of my family’s favorite bedtime books. I’ve read it so many nights over the last twelve years that we’ve started reciting the entire book page by page without even having it in our hands. Here we go… straight from memory… Not sure if I’ll get all the randomness… [Continue Reading]

  • The other morning, I woke up – and right away it started. The whispers in my head… saying, “You’re not good enough. Your business will never succeed. You’re a terrible mother.” Lies. False words that I allow to creep in my mind, making me doubt everything I know. Telling me that I am not who… [Continue Reading]
