Praise Be To The Lord Of The Flies

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 12 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Buzz around, see what you think, then click on the links at the end of this post for a peek into some other homes!

*A cursed bug has decided to make it's way through our house this week. It started with Girl Child, then it hit me. Now it is attacking both The Hubs and Lil Bit. So far, Boy Child hasn't gotten it, but we will see what happens.
I hate stomach bugs!

*Speaking of Boy Child, I mentioned last month that he started soccer this year. He had his first game on Saturday. I was so proud!! He did awesome and his team won 3-1!
It's a touchdown! Oh..wait..I mean GOAL!

*It's suppose to be Spring, right (more on that later). Naturally, when the warm weather hit (for all of 3 seconds..again, more on that later), we fired up the grill and did us a happy dance! This is what we had one day...
Oh yea....

And another day....
Yum, right?

*Kentucky made it to the final game of the NCAA championship (I hate basketball, so I don't know the proper name for this....). They lost. I live in Kentucky, so I had some fun with all my friends who were disappointed. This picture was shared and an argument started because the guy said I didn't make it (I totally did!)
Almost had it....

*We went to my niece's birthday party at a skating ring and I got a picture of my kids and her together. I compared it to a picture I took almost 4 years ago....
My how they grow!
My how they've grown!!

*So, the coolest thing happened. If you are a reader of this blog, you know that one of my friends, Marcia from the Menopausal Mother is someone who's life I love reading about. Her family is the coolest! Well, she went to a writing convention in Dayton, Oh and just happened to stop in the town just south of me here in Kentucky. The next morning, we met! She's the first person I've met from the blogging world. How cool is that?!

me (r) and Marcia from Menopausal Mother!

*Remember how, up there, I talked about the weather? Yea.....this can only be talked about using pictures.
Yea, our forecast....

Okay, that's all I have this month! I'm sure my friends have some better posts for ya....                          Baking In A Tornado                                  The Rowdy Baker                                Just A Little Nutty                                          The Momisodes                          Spatulas on Parade                                   The Sadder But Wiser Girl                          Follow me home . . .                 Stacy Sews and Schools                            Someone Else’s Genius                                Impoverished Vegan                             Juicebox Confession                                         Go Mama O

Suburbia in The Country

I was recently given the chance to read and review a hilariously funny book full of haikus. 

I know. Funny. Haiku. Same sentence?

But it's true. 

As with any woman (I assume anyway), I have had this urge to live in the burbs. You know how the story goes.....a nice house on a nice lot with a white fence and 2.5 kids, all that.

Well, let me tell you right now, after reading Peyton Price's "Suburban Haiku", I am extremely happy that I DON'T live in the burbs. Because, while it made for some serious laughing, it also made me cringe. 

This book gives you a glimpse of what life is like in Suburgatory. Peyton gets through it with laughter and probably several bottles boxes of wine. Her genius shows as she scales down all that life throws at her to 7 perfectly hilarious syllables. That takes serious skill and talent.

Whether you are laughing, crying, or snorting a long with her poetic humor, Suburban Haiku is sure to offer you something that will make you say "Holy hell, that is so true!"

Suburban Haiku is just about everywhere, but here are some links to help you find your way.

You can also find Peyton Price contributing over at NickMom!

Check it out. I promise you, you WON'T be disappointed!
