Conspiracy Theory

Conspiracy Theory

I’m not sure who shot J.R. I don’t know all the “grassy knoll” theories. I don’t understand many of Oliver Stone’s conspiracy theories. But I do think the 2nd grade teachers at Savannah’s school are out to get me. In the fall they wanted pictures of Savannah throughout her life for a “time line” project they were doing. I had no time, much less desire to pour through the boxes of photos I amassed before going digital (which, by the…

Turning on a dime

Turning on a dime

When I was growing up, I used to LOVE snow days. They were rare, but every year or two there would be enough ice and snow to get us out of school for a few days..and once when Little Rock received 7 inches we were out of school for close to a week. For our children it’s different. Especially this year. First we were out for seven days due to Hurricane Ike. Today we were out due to a stationary…

Brittany’s Flipping Out…

Brittany’s Flipping Out…

From the time Brittany was very young, she has been doing flips. I signed her up at her preschool for an after school gymnastics program. She spent hour after hour coming home and practicing her head stands. After her first year, her instructor suggested we find her a “more challenging” gym as he felt like she was naturally talented in the tumbling area and may need more instruction than he could give her. So we moved her to our current…

Pride cometh before a lunch…

Pride cometh before a lunch…

I’ve been trying to stay on top of my game these days. You know…things like returning all the kids school library books so the school will stop sending home long lists of Baerg family overdue books, recording all the party information in my calendar so I don’t show up at someones house right on time for a party when it’s actually at Laser Quest which is another fifteen minutes away, and putting up the laundry before someone moves it from…

Darla Stories…9-1-1 Edition, Nashville

Darla Stories…9-1-1 Edition, Nashville

After 3 years of good times in Dallas, Bill up and decided he wanted to go to graduate school. (It was actually kind of always in the plan, but it sounded better to say “up and decided”.) He chose Vanderbilt University as the place to get his MBA and before I knew it we had rented a townhouse within walking distance of the university. It was two-story, but quite small. So small in fact that…I kid you not…once, when we…

A Bugz Life and Real Life

A Bugz Life and Real Life

Tonight was the big Rummel Creek Elementary 2nd Grade performance of “A Bugz Life”. All the kids had really cute costumes….Savannah was a monarch butterfly. You will not be surprised to learn that I had absolutely nothing to do with the making of these costumes. When they asked for volunteers for that job … well, I just lowered my head and intently stared at the floor until they had enough people to do it. I did volunteer to help teach…

Heard at Chick-fil-A’s everywhere…and sometimes around here.

Heard at Chick-fil-A’s everywhere…and sometimes around here.

It’s no secret that Chick-fil-A is one of my favorite restaurants. It has been since I was a little girl and went to Jonesboro, GA to attend Vacation Bible School with my cousin. The owner of Chick-fil-A went to my cousin’s church and they served chicken sandwiches at one of the VBS events. It was love at first bite. I would have joined the church if I could. Didn’t matter about the preachin’ or the music…they served Chick-fil-A and that…

For the love of books…

For the love of books…

I love to read. Always have. And one thing I’ve always wanted to have was an answer to the question “What is your favorite book?” Now I have lots of books that I have enjoyed and some books that I LOVED. I’ve read books that I couldn’t put down and books that I thought were thought provoking or funny or insightful. But I never really had an absolute favorite. Until now. My answer for that question now is a true…
