Too Hot to Handle

Today is our anniversary. I had every intention of writing this beautiful, poetic, and sentimental tribute to the man with whom I have shared the past 15 years.  I had snippets of the post already formed in my head and was just waiting for the day to come when I could put pen to paper … [Read more…]

Spaced Out

Okay, so I took the kids (and a friend each) to go see “Space Chimps”. There’s 90 minutes of my life (and $16.25 of my husband’s hard-earned money) that I will never get back. Oh, my kids loved it. It had lots of color, lots of physical comedy, lots of unique characters. But the humor … [Read more…]

It’s More, Bueno!

Forget what you’ve been told. History does repeat itself. Lightning can strike twice. And Taco Bueno can massively screw up an order twice in different locations. You may have read the post on Blogospeer about our last experience at Taco Bueno (yes, he called it Taco Bell, but it was Bueno) where we discovered the … [Read more…]

Threads of Gratitude

I realized today that Debily is now in its 12th month of existence. And though it’s not the official one year anniversary, I can say the past 12 months have been a wild ride. I am definitely a different person, living a different life, with a different focus and a different passion for ministry than … [Read more…]

A Sight for Sore Eyes

Since we didn’t purchase a pool membership this year (see previous post), we decided instead to go for season passes to Six Flags.  We have finally reached the point where our passes have paid for themselves and we now start saving money.  Despite the fact that we have closed the park every time we’ve gone … [Read more…]

A Pool of Options

For the first time in eight years, we do not have a pool membership at the Texas Pool for the summer. And yet, here we are, in the throes of the hot Texas summer with no pool membership. Never fear, however, the Great Summertime Pool Adventure of 2008 is well underway. Our first swim of … [Read more…]

In Focus

This post could be considered a public service announcement of sorts. This probably comes as a shock to my two-handfuls of readers. If you’ve been with me for awhile, you know I don’t generally use my blog for PSA’s. I may be preachy, but this blog is generally not my preferred forum for stirring the … [Read more…]

By Popular Demand

I confess, I’m not very good when it comes to making potato salad. I either overcook the potatoes, thereby creating a mashed potato gloopy mess, or I undercook them and end up with a potato salad where the potatoes are crunchier than the celery. Neither option is particularly appetizing. In the 18 years since I … [Read more…]

Night of the Long Ball

Last night’s Home Run Derby is one that is sure to be talked about for years to come.  And the name I am sure will be mentioned most often in those discussions will be Josh Hamilton. He’s no stranger to the handful of us who faithfully follow the Rangers.  His on-field achievements in this first … [Read more…]
