The post where I confess to being rebellious

on being rebellious

I’ve never told you this before, but I tend to be a bit rebellious.

Not in big ways.  Not now (although I did when I was younger.  cough.  statute of limitations. cough cough. changed.)

On the outside, I’m a rule following by the books kind of gal.  I have to be – I expect my kids to obey me.  But that doesn’t change me on the inside.

Obsession Confession – Office Supplies

the office supply obsession

A few months back, I made an obsession confession about toilet paper.  I’d like to make a similar confession about office supplies.

I am obsessed with office supplies.

I look forward to late July when the school supply displays go up.  I love the smell of a fresh ream of notebook paper.  I adore color coordinated file folders.  I even kind of like tax season because the stores all have these amazing displays of office supply stuff themed around tax day.

My latest obsession is ARC.  ARC has taken me to either (a) my happy place or (b) a deep dark place from whence I will never return.  The answer depends on who you ask.  I say (a) and my husband says (b).

Let me just warn you that if you have an office supply habit (you know who you are) and you haven’t heard of ARC, then you do NOT want to click on my Pinterest Board devoted to the subject of ARC. Or the one on Smashbooking.  Or the one on Washi Tape.  Just… look away.  

It was enough to make me unfaithful to my beloved 15 year planner brand of choice.  I have no regrets.  NONE!

my kids normally make me laugh, but i'm not laughing

I have to be honest. My kids are NOT making my laugh today.

Imagine me standing here with my hands on my hips. I’m tapping one foot. I have the “mom face” going.  I’m saying

I am not amused.

Yes. It’s Tuesday. The day I normally post a cute story about how my kids make me laugh. I normally make a statement that my kids make me laugh almost every day.

The key word is almost.  Today is… the other kind of day.

Honestly, it’s all my fault. To quote TobyMac,

I need some time with God and a mental vacation.

Sorry, I’m not much for conversation….

(sorry if that song sticks in your head.  giggle.) [Read more…]
