My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:

As I sit down to write this post, I’m both overwhelmed with gratitude and a bit desperate to hold on to the memories of my babies who no longer look like babies. How did they grow from this…

The Love of a Grandparent 1

Few things this side of heaven are more precious to me than to witness the love that others demonstrate to my children. I can’t describe how my heart wells up with gratitude for a child who takes Averi by the hand and leads her up a slide. And then catches her when she decides to swan dive off the top of it. Or a young boy who takes the time to assemble a set of train tracks that JJ can’t quite master. It warms my heart when our babysitter Courtney (Ms. “Corny,” according to JJ) describes how much she misses the kids when we have been out of town. I am thankful for a waiter or waitress who takes the time to interact with JJ when he decides to tell them in great detail about his Cookie Monster Band-Aid.

It’s weird to live in a place where snow just isn’t a big deal. Where we’re from in Georgia, a snow day is almost as thrilling as a Honey Boo Boo sighting.

I have three more Facebook features to introduce to Marky Mark Zuckerberg (here are the first two), and I’m curious to know how many of you think #5 is a social media necessity.

There are very few (if any) things in the online world I desire more than a Facebook dislike button.

My Favorite Emergency Room Story, Strep Test

There was a HUGE surge in traffic to my blog on Friday (the day I published a video all about my trip to the ER), and I can only assume it’s because so many of you were concerned about my well-being and wanted to make sure I wasn’t still suffering from Bleeding Esophageal Verices (henceforth known as BEV). Especially if you’ve recently been to my house because I heard they’re contagious.

Some poor person out there actually suffering with BEV is hating me right now.

Please don’t hate me. Hate WebMD.

They’re the ones who sent me on this wild goose chase.

I can’t even begin to count the number of times WebMD has recommended that I visit the emergency room. It probably numbers in the thousands.

I mean, I could count to a couple thousand, but I don’t really have the energy.

Thursday is the new Tuesday here at Katy in a Corner. I’m giving y’all a How-to Tuesday on a Thursday just to keep you on your toes and coming back for more every day. Also because I’m stuck at home all sick with nothing else to do.

Unless you count watching the kids watch TV as something to do.

Homeschool Dropout, Elephants

I get so excited about the idea of homeschooling our kids (who are now nearly 3 and 1 1/2). I imagine all the wonderful things I can show them and teach them. And then conversations like this cause me to question my credentials:

Have you ever wondered why Facebook isn’t more mom-friendly?

Probably because it was created by a kid whose own mother was still doing his laundry.

Well, there are some things I “dislike” (get it?) about Facebook, and I decided to air out my grievances for you via this here vloggy thing.
