A new venture....

So my sister and I have always talked several times a week, maybe more than once a day...we're always swapping stories about crap our kids did or said that made us laugh, cry, and want to drink heavily all at the same time. Several times one of us would make the comment "We could write a book" which eventually turned into "Should we write a book?" Hence the birth of our new blog: The Daily Epidural

We've invited every mom we can think of to come and join us on this adventure of parenthood. Because if my sister and I have learned one thing in our story-swapping it's, thank GOD I'm not alone!!!

Resolutions, shmesolutions...

I've never been one for resolutions. It always SEEMS like a good idea but I've just never jumped on that bandwagon. I mean, some people spend MONTHS figuring out what they want to change or improve in their lives....seriously? Has shit gotten THAT bad that you need to spend MONTHS figuring out how you're going to fix it? Now I know for some people it's minor things, but the way I see it I'm only setting myself up for disappointment if I purposefully TELL people what I plan to change in the new year. Sure I have things I'd like to change/fix/improve but if I don't specifically TELL anyone this, I won't look like an ass when it doesn't happen :) Kinda makes me sound like a resolutions scrooge (aka: BIG BITCH) but yay for people who make them and stick to them, I'm just not one of those people...

So here's to losing weight, saving money, getting organized, and learning a new skill...hats off to those of you who are successful...I'd say my loose version of a "resolution" would be to update this blog more frequently, but who are we kidding... :)

Happy 2010!

Christmas shopping that is! :) I'm one of the crazies that heads out on Black Friday and got EVERYTHING checked off my list...that makes me happy, now to start wrapping it all!

AND my Santa got me my gift early, a JVC HD camcorder...I'm SO friggin excited! Our old one hasn't worked for a while so we've missed a few months of Ryan which makes me sad but now I'm going to be following that kid around like her own personal papparazzi! :)

So I managed to bring over all of my "super duper ridiculously old" blog entries from one blog and dump them all here! YAY! So now all of my infrequently visited blog posts are in one home!

Ok, that is all...return to your lives...


Can you hear the angels singing? The Hallelujah Chorus in stereo? Since I'm now a stay-at-home-mom/domestic goddess I have a bit more time and can hopefully keep up on this again...we'll see how long that lasts!

Lots has happened since I last visited blogger-land...quit my job, packed up our house, 3000 mile road trip and we're now happily ensconced in southern Maryland! Our neighborhood is amazing; there are kids everywhere, something we didn't have in California and Vince and I have been welcomed into the fold very quickly. We love it! I'm enjoying staying at home much more than I thought I would, but ask me again when it's February and I've been cooped up in the house for days on end unable to go outside :) But for now I love it and am enjoying the time I have with the kids.

Speaking of my little updated picture!

Ok, so that's all from here...hopefully I'll be back tomorrow? Or maybe the next day...

I am soooooooooo excited, Vince and I finally booked our vacation! We will be spending a WHOLE WEEK in Jamaica, just the two of us! Of course after we booked it I had a mini panic attack over leaving the kids for a week (of course picturing Armageddon, earthquakes, fires, name it...) but they'll be fine and have a blast with grandma and grandpa (although I'm not loving the idea of them in my house that long w/o me...lord knows what my mil will do to it while I'm gone)

SO with a week long vacation on the beach comes the dire need to get myself "bathing suit ready" I WILL be wearing a two piece bathing suit on this to get myself looking decent enough to pull that off....anyone wanna motivate me?

What is ONE thing...

You've always wanted to do and STILL hope to do before you die? Morbid, right? Yeah, a little bit but I deal with 12 year olds all day so I sometimes have to fight off the horrible, random thoughts that pop into my head (keeps me sane...or something...)I think everyone should have their own "Bucket List"....

One thing I've always wanted to do and would really really really like to do in the near future is write a book....I'm not talking Nora Roberts smut-style or create an uber-literary empire a la JK Rowling (although how f-ing awesome would THAT be???) But Vince and I have actually talked about writing a children's book together, we've even kind of come up with a little series. AND recently my sister and I are talking about delving into the world of writing together....I sure hope it can happen, but like anything BIG, how the hell do you start??? We're not even sure WHERE to start, WHAT to do first, WHO to talk to, etc...but I hope that doesn't stop us!

So, what is on YOUR bucket list that you honestly think you will accomplish? (and if you know anyone in the publishing world let me
