The Whole Story

As our flight from Grand Cayman to Atlanta took off, my usual flight ritual of praying for a safe flight, a sober pilot (perhaps an air traffic controller that was not napping), a little confession-just in case, and wondering how on earth the electronic headache reliever/massager made it into Skymall, didn’t take place like it usually does. My only […]

Open Door-Slammed Shut

February 22nd was my last post. I hadn’t realized that it had been that long since I had blogged but I had good reason. Morning Sickness. For the past 6 weeks, I could not think clearly or focus on small words and even the light of the computer made me want to puke. I wasn’t walk […]

…And One Door Opens. Yep, The Big Reveal.

Remember my last post about one door closing while another one opens? This one here. Well, I’m ready for the big reveal: There is so much turmoil, for many of us, surrounding our figuring out what “God’s plan” for our lives entails. I have, on many occasions, called out to God and begged, “Just reveal […]

One Door Closes…

I saw a license plate holder today that said, “I make plans… and God laughs.” Well, God must have been doubled over belly laughing about what I thought His plans were. I was so sure! I was so, so wrong. Yep. God has big, big plans for the Zimfam. -Cue the door closing. All the […]

Happy Birthday Justin Timberlake

Perryann was a huge NSYNC fan when she was 7 years old. She had an undying love for Justin Timberlake. She told me once that she loved him so much, it hurt her chest. A little too young for chest crushing love, yes. Possibly an unhealthy infatuation not squashed by her mother, uh huh.  But […]

The Best Advice That I Have Ever Received: Wear a Bra

My husband and I played a game last night where he wrote six questions on little pieces of paper and we picked them out of a hat, of sorts –well, it was a soap dish but not one we were currently using. The aim of the game was to answer the question with the first […]

She Said I Had A Goatee

I’ve been on a blog break for the past few weeks and it has been awesome. Not worrying about blog things, like self inflicted deadlines or whether ever single quirky thing that happens would make a good post, has been lovely. Oh, I haven’t stopped worrying about “things” just not the blog. I figured jumping […]

She Says She’s “Saving It”

Gracie has decided that any money she get she is going to save-for what she hasn’t said. She just doesn’t want to spend it. Her idea of saving is moving it from place to place. It started in her wallet, then moved to her backpack and now it is strewn about the house. I picked […]

We’ve Got A Sugar Situation

Gracie was out of school for three days last week. Hence, the reason for my not posting since Tuesday. I decided to try for a three day run at Mother of the Year-self proclaimed, of course. I crowned myself MOY on Friday with a cupcake from Sprinkles after an excursion to Huntington Beach.  I planned […]

Stuff My Mom Was Right About

and a few things she wasn’t: Right about: You can’t see the dirt if you’re not on your hands and knees. But the baseboards look fine from up here. Wrong about: Crossing my eyes did not make them stay that way.  And getting hit on the back while crossed didn’t work either. Right about: The […]
