I was listening to the John Tesh radio show the other night.

He was talking about how women are beginning to earn more than men in a lot of marriages/relationships and what kind of stress that puts on the husband and relationship.

One lady commented that she was the breadwinner in her house and it was so stressful being responsible for all the money and what she wouldn't give to be a housewife and not have to worry about money.

What the...?

If there is such a housewife, I would love to meet her and find out her secret.

I wanted to post an equally snide response to a snide comment a certain politician person made about Ann Romney.

But then this weekend happened.

I live in tornado alley. I woke up Sunday morning and anxiously turned on the news to see what the damage report was from the storms.

I found instead a bunch of he-said, she-said over silly subjects. I suddenly became very tired and disgusted with the news, because when you run outside frantically telling your husband to get out of the car because a tornado has just touched down barely 2 miles from your home, some things just start to sound rather trivial.

Nothing like mother nature to help you put things into perspective.

would you like it cold...or cold?

Being the mom means always eating cold food

as, of coarse, there are always 50 million mealtime emergencies to deal with.

In case you were wondering, cold toast sucks.

the sound of silence

You know what I've discovered solves a lot of my chillun problems?

A ban on talking.

I read an article in this month's issue of Real Simple about how women don't spend enough time on themselves and "down-time." The whole issue is dedicated on ways to simplify your life, save money and time, organize, and find time for yourself.

Which made me think of ways I can simplify my life including the things I already do, like: pack lunches and backpacks the night before, make/prep dinner earlier in the day when I have the energy to clean-up after myself, and keep a pad of paper on my fridge so I can write down grocery items as we run out of them.

Speaking of simplifying, Whitney and I have been talking about this blog. We don't want to give it up, but as our lack of posting shows, we don't exactly have the time to put into it. That's when we realized we didn't have the time because we felt like we had to write big-long-soul-searching type posts every time. Hence, our new changes.

We are simplifying to shorter, more frequent posts. Maybe it will just be a thought of the day, something that inspired us and we want to share. It might be a funny antidote or some crazy thing our kids did and we want to know we aren't the only ones with those kind of kids. We will share tips that help us in our lives and maybe even a recipe or two.

We are excited about our new direction we are taking and hope you as our readers will join on us this new adventure and as always share with us your ideas and thoughts so that we may know we are not alone in this great wide world.
