Captain Fussybuckets goes to the dentist!

This morning Daddy, the Captain, and I went to the dentist for our regular cleanings.  Or maybe NOT so regular, since we hadn’t been to the dentist since….last fall, maybe.  We left Baby D home with our good friend and good thing we did, since we were gone for about 3 hours!  Yikes!  

But…the Captain did well!  Check out the pics:

He was kind of a stinker at the end [...]

Dear Lady and Chick-Fil-A,

Dear Lady with a Louis Vuitton handbag, talking on your iPhone and not facing the play area at Chick-Fil-A where your grandson is playing, The place is a madhouse because you and other grandparents and parents aren’t watching your children.  Sure, it’s Family Night, but that doesn’t mean it’s Send Your Child Into a Closed Area and Let Them Go Crazy Night. My (almost) 3 year old wasn’t scared to be in there, but honestly, I was, so I pulled him out.  And the little girl who busted her lip because of the craziness, poor thing, I hope she [...]

Audio Books!

Let’s get the truth out there:  I don’t read much.  I LOVE to read, but I just never can find the time to do so.  I used to love to read in high school, when I had a bunch of free time, but now, I just don’t.  So, what about audio books?  I can listen to them on the way to the store, post office, church, etc, etc, etc.  Or I could listen to them while doing just about anything:  cleaning the house, cooking dinner, or even relaxing before bed.   There is a WORLD of [...]

“English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You!” by Reza Mashayekhi

I was able to review the book:  "English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You!" by Reza Mashayekhi.  This book was written for foreigners and people learning English as a second language, but it is helpful for anyone who speaks English.  It is full of idioms and expressions in the English language.  Some of these I didn't know!


(Are you trying to remember what, exactly, an idiom is?)
