We’re a little over a week past the Olympics, and my family is still recovering in its own unique way. We’re not dealing with shin splints or sore muscles here — we’re dealing with detoxing from TV Overload. It worked out serendipitously for my family that the Olympics aired the same two weeks we were moving MORE »

After some time homeschooling, we’re going “back to school” this year. My daughter will be going to second grade, and my older son is starting preschool for the first time. I’m going to miss homeschool something fierce, but I know my kids will be in good hands this year. We’re year-at-a-time, kid-at-a-time people, as far MORE »
Aside from my weird name, followed by how I earn money from blogging (short answer: I chatted about it with Darren Rowse in this recent webinar), the question I’m most often asked is: “How on earth do you do it all?” Now, I’m not going to go there, really, because we all know that no MORE »
My week has been a shot of crazy. We had barely put the finishing touches on our renovation a few days ago when we moved in yesterday and today. There is stuff everywhere (I’m typing this next to a drill, a zucchini, a can of spray paint, and a crock pot), and I know how MORE »
I consider myself an Olympics fan. I don’t watch with fervor every Olympiad, but when I’m able, I keep it on the TV and try to stay involved. So that’s why I find this long-standing tradition rather surprising: Americans don’t dip their flag in front of the host nation’s leaders during the opening ceremonies, while MORE »
I still remember this one spring evening when I was working on my (then) new blog—Kyle, my husband, was tinkering with the media cabinet, the kids were in bed, and we were listening to the cacophony of big city noise outside our open windows. My blog was a few months old, and I still wasn’t MORE »
We’re on the tail end of renovation our new-to-us house, and it’s crunch time. Our days have been spent painting walls and laying down new floor (the fun, pretty stuff, in other words!), and as soon as that’s done, we move in. Huzzah! This is house makes better use of space than our current one MORE »
From time to time, I thought I’d tackle here some of my most oft-asked questions about blogging, writing, running a blog network, earning an income online, and managing that part of my life with all those other things. You know—raising kids, getting dinner on the table, exercising, having soul-filling alone time, dating my husband, and MORE »
As we’re nearing the final stages of our home renovation, I’m starting to think about decor. I’m jumping ahead of myself a bit, but I can’t help but get excited. We’ve lived in nine homes in our almost ten-year marriage, but this is the first one we’ve owned. And it’s also the largest (albeit still MORE »
The other day, my 7-year-old daughter, Tate, and I were heading to the movie theater to meet another mom-and-girl pair for a little double date: Ben & Jerry’s and Brave. Being a one-car family, my husband was dropping us off before he and the boys went on a Manly Errand (they needed to go to MORE »
