Fair warning, dear reader, the below is almost as long as a novel, but it'll be an interesting read. Grab a drink, sit back, and enjoy the chaos... Approximately two weeks ago, D (the sort-of-boy-toy, remember him?) asked if I would be interested in going with him and his kids to a sort-of-nearby amusement part… Continue reading Bad Decisions, Chaos and Calamities
Hi there, Catie here! How's everyone doing out in internet land? We're mostly good. I'll be honest it's been a mixed bag for me over the past couple weeks. Good News First: Mr. Paul got a new job!!!!! Yessss!!!! We all knew it wouldn't take him long to find a new job once he started… Continue reading Sunshine and Rainbows – Only Sometimes It’s Not.
So... I went out and got myself a new man-toy. Sort of. D is someone I've known for many years. I first met him when he was my friend's beau, over a decade ago. The four of us, D and J (the friend), and Paul and I would hang out, play cards, etc, and we'd… Continue reading Our (Slightly) Expanded Circle… Sort of
Hi there, Catie here! Welcome to another not well planned out blog post, I have many talents but carefully laid out posts isn't one of them.

Hi There, Catie Here! Can we talk about how much snow we've gotten over the past week or so? It's March, Mother Nature needs to calm down already. I knew Sunday that we were going to get some snow overnight but I think we were all surprised to wake up to over a foot of… Continue reading Currently… A Stream of Consciousness Post
As the title implies, Paul is to blame for what happened. Once upon a time, many years ago, we needed a new car. We went to a local Chevy dealer and we test-drove a four-door sedan. It was a typical family car, fairly good on gas, and plenty big enough for the four of us.… Continue reading It’s All Paul’s Fault
Hi there! Catie here!! So working on being a more frequent blogger hasn't been going so well. What can I say? I have winter doldrums and haven't been following through with much at all really. The big news around here is that within one week both Lena and I bought new cars! I decided in… Continue reading Our Driveway Looks Like a Chevy Dealership – Just The Way Paul Likes It
Hi there, Catie here! Happy Superbowl Sunday, if you celebrate and just plain Happy Sunday if you don't (like us.) What's have we been up to, you ask? Lets see... Lena and Bina thoroughly enjoyed their two week cruise, but I'll let Lena tell you all about it. Paul and I did pretty well managing… Continue reading It’s Been Busy!
Hi there, Catie here! Two weeks in a row, impressive right? I thought it would be fun to do something a little different this week. Instead of a boring super-fun weekly recap I thought Paul, Lena and I could each share a few of our favorite things. I decided to break it down to our… Continue reading The Completely Unsolicited “Things we Love” Post
