McDonalds Doesn’t Serve Coffee?

Today is Father’s Day. As a rare treat, Handsome Boy and I snuck to McDonalds to pick up breakfast for Handsome Dad. What should have been a simple, ordinary task, turned into a frustrating ordeal. (At the drive-though order box thing) Employee: Generic McDonalds greeting and order request Me: I’ll have a number 4(?) with […]

Handsome Boy’s First Public Tantrum

Handsome Boy had his first public melt down/tantrum this weekend. Now, we’re no strangers to tantrums with Handsome Boy. He is very stubborn and vocal about his needs and wants. At home he has thrown some doozies, but he is usually a bit more reserved in public. We also plan our outings around his schedule […]

It’s been a while

I guess that’s a bit of an understatement. It’s been more than a year and a half since my last post. No excuses, well, other than that I had a somewhat difficult pregnancy which resulted in a very difficult baby.

I love love love love love my TDI Jetta. I love my 40+ mpg. I love getting more than 500 miles on a tank before my gas light comes on. I love knowing that when the gas light comes on I still have nearly 100 miles before I actually run out of gas. But… I […]
