Step right up

The newest attraction in that amusement park of humanity- climb aboard the Coaster of Karen's Life. The steady climbs of buying a new car, getting a loan approved, sending the kids off to a happy start to the school year. The pulse pounding sudden drops of the pink eye diagnosis for both boys, $1800 worth of repairs for the minivan, and executives who think the deadlines don't apply to them! Hold on tight as the Big Meeting approaches and you spin faster, faster, faster getting materials ready for the printers; only to veer off in the other direction toward the kids and house and furniture being delivered. It's a head rush! And when the ride slows down, stop by the concession stand for some cheesecake or a nice glass of pinot noir. I think you'll need it.

Hi, Nice site. My small site about microbiotic diet is sometimes a pain to keep up with and needs work. Good job!

I love how the spam comment works right into the theme...cheesecake, macrobiotic diets. Yeah.
How was the creme brulle cheesecake?

yeah, I'm amused by my latest spam comment. It's nice to have a change from "Your site is good, but it could be better."

the cheesecake was good, but not mind blowing. I would have been better off with the pinot noir.

I think I'll just go straight to the concession stand and skip the rest.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
