Schooooooolz-out for summer

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life26 Comments

Today's the day. The last day of school for my year-round-school-goin' kidlets. Ahhhh. Feels so good, don't it? I was recently asked what my last day of school traditions are by a nice blog reader, and I realized I basically have none. Not a big deal really, I mean, you know… they are SUPPOSED to finish school each year. Kids … Read More

This dude came onto the scene (the one in the front of the shot, not sure about his teammate in the background.) I, for one, yet representing many, am so, so very insanely blessed that he did. Happy birthday, Coley-mon. We love you like gangbusters. And now you are not the "only kid in America" without a Nintendo DS. Love, … Read More

Does this mean it’s one degree? or two?

Mini Super Fan meets Bill Murray at last night’s All Star Game. Bill Murray is one of the owner’s of the Saints, ergo, Bill Murray at a Saints game makes sense. Or should I say, Bill Murray got to meet Mini?

I have a confession, which is neither deep nor scandalous in any way, but I believe it definitely says something about who I am: there are certain movies that, when they come on the television, I cannot NOT watch. Period. No matter what scene I'm joining in on, be it the first, the middle or the last. I simply cannot … Read More

Aidan’s fastpitch softball season is coming to an end. And I’m actually sad about this. Sad, because, I can be having the worst possible, hormonally-rage filled day ever, but once I’m settled into my brand new red Target chair with cupholder, watching the game unfold, somehow, all the crap just melts away. It’s not that I’m that big a fan … Read More

Now for some gratuitous T & A! (well, some “A” anyway)

If I had a butt like that, I would never NOT wear those jeans. Sigh. Did I mention I used to fit into his pants? Spent some time this weekend editing photos from the past three months for my periodic Shutterfly upload. I use iPhoto to view and chronologically organize my photos as they come out the camera. But I … Read More

Dr. Pavlov, ring that bell

Here's part of my dilemma: 1. I already HAVE a reliable, if slightly ancient and completely uncool cell phone. 2. Have you seen how expensive the AT&T Plans are? I'm presently on Verizon. Oh, Daddy's not going to like that one at all. 3. I will be in the office tomorrow morning, here in Utah. Nowhere near a store, which … Read More

So last night, I capped off a perfect 4th of July holiday weekend by making my annual visit to the ball park to catch a Saints game. Usually, I drop the family off and then have three nice peaceful hours of quiet all to my self. Sigh. That’s the real reason I’m such a huge fan of the game. But… … Read More

And no, I ain’t talkin’ ’bout what comes in the bottle, ladies. First things first: I am taking today AND tomorrow off from work, and let me tell you, as I sit here, in my PJs, typing, with a brisk July morning temp of 49 (yes, you heard me) degrees, with a local time of 7:53 a.m., I am SO … Read More

As I was saying, there are certain pages, that when I go back and look at them, I think: I could just do this, over and over and over, and I’d be good. I’d have things covered. I think this was in an article once, for Simple, a three or four years ago? Maybe? Now, keep in mind: i don’t … Read More
