Okay.. we all know that men and women are different. It’s the whole Mars and Venus thing. But nothing brings that home quite like asking your husband to sign a card for the holidays. Every time it’s the same.. I give him cards to sign for the family.. I always sneak a peek at what he writes… And every time it looks like this: They do exactly what we ask them to do. Sign the card. I’m honestly surprised I get a “Love, ” out of it. I bet if they had their way, they’d just sign their name. Or even better – first initial, last name.

Look at any pick-up line at school, sidelines at a game or the check out line at a grocery store and chances are pretty high that you’re going to find a mom on a smartphone. It’s the core processor of our lives. We use it to schedule, take pictures, make shopping lists and play Candy Crush and Words with Friends. In a pinch, we use it to ward off a meltdown and make the last 20 miles of a trip go smoothly. We use it to look for ways to save money and memories and Pin to our hearts content.

And by major I mean “Holy Mother Mary of God - batten down the hatches” major – not “they’re calling for an inch of snow”. Would you be ready if the police knocked on your door and said “you have 5 minutes to gather your things and evacuate“? And by ready, I mean your emergency plan and supplies are already in place and all you have to do is swoop them up and get in your car? And not just in place but in place and able to sustain you and your family for at least 72 hours? If your answer was “no” or “not really” please make this a top priority. … read more
I’ve decided that I have enough humorous text exchanges (textchanges?) with my family that I need to dedicate an entire section of the site. And I even have a name… Welcome to Text-as. Added bonus? I get to toss in some love for my family (crap… MOST of my famiy) down in.. TEXAS! Here’s this week’s best text conversation… Really? And just for the record… she did NOT get the pudding or water delivered. And I’m pretty sure she lived. Welcome to my world! And please.. don’t mind the typo. Damn you auto-correct!
