If You Can’t Take the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen.

I’m not much of a cook. I like to eat, but I really don’t enjoy cooking at all. Some of this stems from the fact that when I was in college one of my roommates gave me a hard time and said I screwed up a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. After she said [...]

Randomness Part 41

Please remember to change your bookmarks and links and bloglines accounts for me. You may have gotten here the old way but (Karen installed a redirect for me, but I don’t think it will last forever. I am now just htttp://sarahandthegoonsquad.com/ – no blogspot. Neat, huh? Wow. Virgin Insurance? Apparently you need this if you [...]

Wah Hoo!

If I got the picture thing to work you can thank Kelly, Laurie and

What is brown and sounds like a bell?*

On Saturday Claudia and I were in Sunglass Hut in the mall. I was trying on sunglasses and Claudia was helping me by touching all of the lenses. At some point she noticed that her father and brother were no longer with us and she said “Where Daddy Ian go?” (She talks in complete sentances, [...]

Letting the Cat Out of the Bag (Literally)

I am patiently trying to figure out how to work my fancy new blog when I hear this crazy noise coming from the kitchen. It was a loud crinkly and thumpy sound. Both kids were in their beds, so I knew it wasn’t them. Then I saw a crazy blue flash run by. It made [...]

Big Dump Truck

I am just checking to see if I know how to post pictures in my new space. Nope. Well, it was a picture of Gabe and The Squad looking at a dump truck. If you are still curious, you can find it here. In the meantime, if any of you guys know an easy way [...]

Hi Honey, I’m Home.

I’m here. Let me know if there are any problems with any of my links or if anything looks wrong. I’ll most likely be changing all of my add ons all this week. Please let me know if you see anything that links to the old site.

Notes from my Blogworld

Small World I’m going to let her tell the story of how we figured this out, but in one of the strangest coincidences that I have ever been involved with it turns out that I went to the same high school as Sharon at It’s Okay, Sweetie, and I have known her brother since 6th [...]

Having a Bad Blog Day

I am completely traumatized. My blog was down for at least 12 hours for no reason. (Thanks to those of you who noticed and asked about it.) I tried to sign up for a WordPress account and now I can’t log in over there, and I can’t get to their tech support without signing in. [...]

The Brad Pitt Butt Traffic Experiment Results

It turns out that people aren’t searching for Brad Pitt’s Butt. Go figure. If this had been the “Doodlebops Without Makeup” or the “Laurie Berkners Boobs” or “Lazytown” experiment it would have been a smashing success. I have had at least 34 hits regarding the Doodlebops naked faces and eight recent hits for Laurie Berkner [...]

Just One of the Guys

I mentioned in my Father’s Day post that sometimes I feel like I fit in better with the guys than I do with the other Moms. Maybe it is because I would rather watch a James Bond movie marathon instead of any movie with Julia Roberts in it (except “Ocean’s 11″, but there is an [...]

WWC Week 7

The words for this week’s Weekly Word Challenge were discipline and comfort. I’ve got nothing for discipline, but here is comfort. COMFORT
