Super Bowl Sunday!

This will be the first post categorized as “Wacky Weekends”. Since my husband is a soldier, he rarely gets time off. When he does it usually falls on a weekend (at least lately it has). That means, our weekends are “family time” where we get to do things with all of us together at the same time.

These posts may not always happen on weekends, unless it’s late on a Sunday night, but a recap of our fun family adventures will be a regular occurance.

Today we’re having our own “Super Bowl Party”. Just us, and the two little ones since Katie is at her dad’s. This is quite a change from last year when the hubby was “down range” and I had a large group of friends over to our old house in Kansas (we moved to Kentucky about 8 months ago – thank you Uncle Sam).

Finger foods, football and relaxing are on the “menu” today. During the game (between commercials), I will probably clip the coupons from the 4 newspapers I bought this morning. Every woman knows the best part of the game are the food and the commercials – does it even matter which teams are playing? And every mom knows to be thankful to eat the food while it’s hot and to even be able to see/hear HALF the commercials!

And now you are going to witness my first “official” MOMentarily distracted moment during my blogging time – the baby just fell asleep so, of course, the toddler has woken up from his nap and is banging on his bedroom door!

Until next time!

Please read my “About” page to learn more about who I am.

It’s 36 days into the new year and I’m finally following through on one of my non-resolutions. I have started blogs in the past, but I always felt like I had to separate out the types of posts I was making onto separate blogs for those that were only interested in reading about certain things. Then, I would forget to keep the multiple blogs updated with any kind of frequency and eventually lost interest.

I recently discovered WordPress which has much more flexibility with style and layout. I can manage categories of blog posts and have a “menu” at the top of my blog pages where my reader(s) can choose what kind of posts they want to read. They can also browse recent posts and even search for a specific topic. When I found this site, I made a non-resolution to create a single blog location for all my future writing.

Since I do not believe in or follow through on “new year’s resolutions”, I have begun refering to my yearly goals as NON-resolutions. It is my sincere promise to you, my reader(s), to update this blog regularly.

I ask you, my soon-to-be-loyal-reader(s), to hold me accountable. If I veer off course in the slightest, please pull me back in! Please use the “Contact” page to email me and take advantage of the comments feature to share your thoughts! Please note that I reserve the right to censor and/or remove any comments that I, or my other reader(s) may find offensive. That includes, but is not limited to: personal insults, direct threats and innapropriate language.

My hope is that this blog can be an informative, yet entertaining distraction for all of us!

Once again, welcome to my MOMentarily distracted life!
