What just happened???

Greetings to all – it has been a whirlwind of a month. So let me just dive right in. A little less than four weeks ago, P. came home and said, “Guess what . . . “ He then informed me that their battalion was possibly on the hook for an IMMEDIATE humanitarian relief deployment to Pakistan – and he would be on the list to go. After picking my chin up off the floor we started debating the probability...

In the wind

I’m feeling a little lost without P. here. In the wind if you will. Oh yeah, he’s not here. I am mortified that my last post was July 3rd – TONS of things have happened in between. Good things – J. turned three, we’ve had a few sonograms of TootieJoBlair Churundolo – oh yeah – I’m pregnant too (and we like to name our unborn children outrageously terrible things until they pop out). We sold the house (without owing any...

Bobby and his pal Fishing Rob

Last weekend we went camping as a family for the first time (and for you purists out there, we did use a camper, take your disapproval elsewhere J) J. was so EXCITED to go fishing with daddy, and she is absolutely focused when it comes to using her fishing “Rob.” She can often be found in the driveway as the picture of concentration, casting away with her tongue sticking out ala G. Maddox circa the childhood years. It was a...

The beginning of the beginning…

We celebrated our anniversary this weekend. Five years (a jam packed five years!). Our actual anniversary is April 30th, but generally speaking, I am about a week behind in my life so this is actually on schedule. So, in honor of this very special day, and because I did promise a little background, the following is a (sort of) brief synopsis of the beginning of the beginning. April 27th, 1978, P. is born . . . just kidding. Not going...

Happy Birthday Love

So, yesterday was the hubs birthday. I would have actually written this yesterday, but I was too tired from spending his money all day then cooking him a fabulous dinner. (In my defense, most of the money spent was directly or indirectly for him . . . except for JoAnns. There is no possible way to spin that as helping himJ) Anyway . . . in the spirit of getting to know the Huggins middle element, I thought I would...

Daddies have all the fun…

So FYI all you new or soon to be parents . . . daddies have all the fun. While I tell my dear sweet offspring that she may not, in fact, have “cheewos” for breakfast, daddy is busy teaching our demure and proper little lady how to flick boogers out the car window. Daddies have all the fun . . ....

The beginning of the middle…

Because I don’t have enough crazy in my life (and because my email list is getting looooong), I decided we need a blog. As if Alaska wasn’t far enough, we are moving to Germany. So I need a handy place to keep you posted, a way to share my love of all things crafty and fabric, and a super medium to pass the weather along to my shared brain (AKA my sister L.). Voila. Welcome to the life and times...
