“I realized somebody oughtta make an alarm clock that sounds like a baby barfing. ‘Cuz you know what? There IS no snoozing’.” —Bill Engvall

I generally give you a chance to finish your breakfast burrito before I throw a vomit quote out there all willy-nilly like that, but I figured this was the best way to kick off my post-Thanksgiving wrap-up.

Get it? Burrito. Wrap-up.

[Someone get this comedic genius her own TV show.]

BIG News & BloggyCon

If I’m being 100% honest with y’all, I’d have to say that I reluctantly went to BloggyCon ’14 at Cedar Point this past weekend. Veeeeeeery reluctantly. So much so that I was tempted to call the event organizer and just lay out for her all of the reasons I didn’t want to go:

  1. We just moved from Kansas to Georgia.
  2. My husband will be jobless in approximately two weeks.
  3. I came down with a severe cold the day before we were supposed to leave.
  4. We planned to drive 768 miles to Sandusky, Ohio and back again. Because, you know, we haven’t spent enough time in the car lately.
  5. Cedar Point has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn’t going to be able to actually enjoy myself there.

[Well, that’s a negative attitude. Why couldn’t Katy enjoy herself at one of the happiest places on earth?]

Try not to sing the theme song from The Jeffersons the rest of the day. Just try.

Note: If you’ve never heard of The Jeffersons, you’re too young to read this blog. Please return to your Snapchat. (I recently had to ask a younger individual what Snapchat is, and she SCOFFED at me.)

Granted, I’m even too young to remember anything about The Jeffersons except the theme song. But it sure is a catchy one.

[Seriously? Katy has been AWOL for over a month, and she opens up by talking about The Jeffersons?]

I know, I know. I fell off the grid for over a MONTH with no explanation. Forgive me, but I haven’t quite perfected the art of blogging while juggling children, moving cross-country, and an array of other “issues” that demand my attention lately. One day I will likely share what the last month has entailed, but I’ll leave that for a more appropriate time.

Nothing like a terribly vague post to end a long hiatus, amiright?

I mentioned on my various social media accounts yesterday that JJ, our 4-year-old, wished Brian a very happy “Fodder’s Day.”

Happy "Fodder's Day"

It’s almost like he knew about this blog and that Brian provides me with an infinite amount of fodder for it.

The next time someone asks me what I do for a living, I’m going to pull out the following photo and show it to them.

A Blogger's Life for Me

I’m a mommy blogger. So, I basically force my husband and kids to do fun things with me so I can blog about them.

Super-Duper Parenting Idea

I don’t often have great ideas when it comes to parenting/housekeeping/life in general, but when I do, I have to publish them here for the rest of you to behold. So, if you’re keeping track, this is “Super-Duper Parenting Idea” number . . . sorry, there are so many I can’t keep track. This is probably number . . . let me think. Number . . .

Let’s just start with 1 to keep it simple for everyone.

Basically, in 19 months as a mommy blogger, I have had ONE good, original idea.

I promise I haven’t forgotten about y’all. And I know that I STILL haven’t finished telling you about our trip to Indiana and our surprise visitors. I will do that soon, God willing. But our world became much busier this week when we invited my cousin’s 3 1/2-year-old daughter, Ginlee (pronounced Gin-lee, just like it’s spelled), to stay with us for the summer.

How adorable is she?

If you’re keeping track, we now have a 2-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a 4-year-old sleeping under our roof.

I use the term “sleeping” quite loosely.

Honeymooners & Hoosiers

A few weeks ago, I got an email from a dear friend and former college roommate of mine, Genii. We lived together from 2003-2004 while we studied abroad at the University of Leeds in the UK. Despite our incredibly different backgrounds (she is Chinese), beliefs, and a minor language barrier, we became fast friends.
