I'm a little late.... but such is life at times... better late than never?  Ok, so I'm messing up this vlog a bit because it turns out I finally got  a blooper too good to miss.  I was all set to answer question 1.) A song that best describes your early 20s/college years…tell us about it. I had all my props.. bottles and bottles of wine for UB40's Red, Red Wine which sums up my college years (what I remember of them.. LOL!) but my daugther pressed record when we we were gettin' our groove on to Pitbull's "Krazy".  I thought she took a still shot.  So funny!  But the song does repeat  "Your Mama she gets krazy... " and so this sums up my life now!  Enjoy my krazy hair flips!  I'm still LOL!

Boys Sleep Over!

Once again I've caved in to hosting a sleepover for my son and his friends.  Three 11 year olds and a 8.5 year old have taken over the house and I've retreated to my room to blog.  It's safe and quiet in here away from the maelstrom out there! 

So this is what I have in store no doubt:

1.) Endless potty jokes and the fart machine for added bonus (why did I buy my son this? Lapse in good judgement... probably had to do with lots of wine!).

2.) The pantry will be scavenged, rampaged, depleted all night long!  All drinks, food wrappers, crumbs, etc. will be left throughout the house.

3.)  Pillows, cushions, blankets will be thrown about, bounced on, used as projectiles and for hitting friends on the head.

4.) There will be running, rough housing, shouting and all out boisterous shenanigans.

5.)  They will traverse the up and down the stairs, in and out of the house, in and out of the refrigerator 50 million times.

6.) Video games and movies are on the agenda til all hours!

7.)  I will pass out LONG before these BOYS ever do!

But truth be told, it's all great.  They are happy and having fun and making memories.  That is what being a kid is all about.  So I'll just suck it up, smile and drink some more wine!

Rockin The Boat Bump!

Finally joining in  on the Rockin The Bump fun.  I was Rockin The Bump aboard our sailboat for both of my kids.  I spent two pregnancies living aboard our boat.  Andrew was 2 1/2  when we moved off and Claire was 2 months old.  I have so many great memories of living aboard with my babies.  Who needs a cradle to rock them to sleep when you have the gentle rocking of the boat and the soft whisper of waves against the hull.  It was a peaceful time, all of us cradled in love and closeness together.  Enjoy!

Pregnant with my son Andrew, born May 26, 2000.

Pregnant with my daughter Claire, born August 4, 2002

About 5 months pregnant living aboard Argo Navis in beautiful Charleston, S.C.

Mama’s Losin’ It

Late but not forgotten.  I was away at the beach with a dear friend.  Now it's "Back to Life, Back to Reality".

The writer's prompt I picked for this week is 1.) Six Word Memoir: Write about a significant time in your life in just six words.

Give Me The Friggin Epidural NOW!

There you have it!
