Once Upon a Time, I had a blog. . . . . when my kids were still in preschool, kindergarten & elementary school. These are "diary entries" from then. I'm so happy that I documented along the way. These memories and thoughts are precious to me. They'll be mixed in with modern day musings as well. I hope it helps you know that all mothers are both perfect & imperfect in their own ways. . . . . and we're all just doing our best and trying to raise productive, happy humans.

A Look Back at Some Silly Facebook Posts

Dear Diary,  February 25, 2011

(Some of these are so funny to me. . . back when Facebook was fun!) 

Since I had to look way back through my Facebook posts to find the picture of my old (beautiful) kitchen yesterday, I re-read some of my posts.  Starting just over a year ago and going back to when we first bought the house, I found some posts to help you get to know me better. . . with commentary from now. The posts are color coded according to subject if you don't want to read all. Green is about mePink is about Future Fashionista. Blue is about The BuilderPurple is both kids Red is hubbyBrown is coffee, chocolate, food.

In February 2010, I "liked" the Florida Keys.  I'll be there a week and one day from now!  Woo Hoo!!

January 4, 2010--"Gonna try to make home-made pita pockets tonight.  Wish me luck!  I'm addicted to Pita chips!  --  Look!  We found the first time I ever made them!  If you'd like to try, the recipe is on my post here.

January 2, 2010--"Yo, Joe! He'll fight for freedom wherever there's trouble. GI Joe is there . . .GI Joe/Look through the window and who do we see?

The house has been closed up for 2 years.  We WILL be ripping the carpet out asap."-- Um, the carpet is still in.  And if you get really close, it still smells like pee.  Although, we're not sure it's from a cat.
