Moving Day

Do you ever feel like you’re juggling too many balls and if you don’t make a change soon one of them is going to hit you in the head?

(insert “Um, hell yeah, Wifey” here)

While I love all of my balls, ahem, I do feel the need to streamline so that I can work smarter – not harder. With that said I’ve decided to combine residences, pack up Wifey’s House and make all of my posts at Ask Wifey – on one blog.

What does that mean for you? More Wifey. While Wifey’s House is where I let loose a little more, gasp, I’ve been finding that I’ve wanted to share the same things on both blogs (figuring out how to say the same thing differently and sending everyone somewhere else all the time gets a little old), so this seems like the perfect solution.

If you read both blogs, now you have one less stop to make; and if you’ve never been to Ask Wifey I look forward to welcoming you to that side of my world.

To my faithful followers, I appreciate all of the love and ask that you come over to Ask Wifey and hit the follow button there so you can continue to get your dose of Wifey. And, to any new folks stopping by, you’re also invited over and invited to click that lovely little follow button so you can keep up with what’s happening in Wifey’s world, too.

My new forwarding address is:

Can’t wait to see you there.

That’ll be $1 Please

Having a boy has many perks – simple hair, low maintenance shopping and no high-pitch screaming – but when it comes to things like making sure all of your pee lands inside the toilet, boys suck.

Yes, I’m tired of wiping up misdirected urine from the floor, Gasp!, - Miles is only 7 so it’s not like he’s standing that far from the toilet – but no worries, I’ve come up with a plan to fix his little problem.

I’ve decided to start charging him $1 every time he misses the potty and doesn’t clean it up himself. We’ll see if that can straighten him out – no pun intended. He only has a few dollars so for his sake I hope he learns quickly.

What creative ways have you come up with to correct your kids’ minor malfunctions? Do tell, frustrated mamas want to know …

Winks & Smiles,

If you haven’t been over to The BlogRollers to check out my new site and enter to win a $25 Target gift card what are you waiting for? I’m also dishing about being married to a big spender at Ask Wifey. So many places to visit, so little time. Go. Now. Hurry.

Batting Ballerina

No, this is no April Fools’, that’s my multi-talented daughter knocking one out of the park … on Wii … in her ballerina tutu.

Yes, this is what spring break has come to. I’m half way through three weeks of spring break and we’re all still smiling – sort of.

And, yes, she does reading time in her tutu, too.

Winks & Smiles,

Wait! Do you do your ‘do the way your husband likes it? Yup, we’re dishing about hair this week at Ask Wifey. Come chime in …

Another Notch in My Belt

In January when I started my quest to rock a bikini on my 38th birthday I was wearing my belt on the first notch. Not the farthest notch where you have to bypass all the other notches to get to it, but the loosest one, the one that screams, "you can’t get any bigger or you’ll need a new damn belt."

One month ago when I blogged about rocking a bikini on my birthday I had moved comfortably on to the second notch. Well, this Saturday marked a new era for me and my belt. I entered into territory that has never been explored – I put the belt on and fastened it easily in the third notch.

I’m not bragging folks – I’ve punctured belts, and my hand, making my own notches just so I wouldn’t have to go up a size – I’m just trying to stay motivated and maybe motivate one of you, too.

I’ve get less than one month until my birthday and I’ve probably got to slide another two notches if I’m going to rock that bikini – and not scare anyone. Since I’m boycotting the scale notches in my belt, not pounds, are my milestones.

Three down, two more to go…

Winks & Smiles,

Wait! Are you married to a sports fanatic? In honor of March Madness I’m dishing about the top ten signs of a sports fanatic at Ask Wifey. You don’t want to miss this one.
