Looking for some juice...

Posted by Robin Haws on Monday, February 22, 2010,

That's what my brain is telling me this morning as I try to search for an idea for a blog post.

Where did I put that Creative Juice?

Thought it was behind the milk.

I suppose I'm a little distracted today. I'll maybe be blogging about that distraction soon.

As a writer, there've been plenty of times of "denied access" in my life. When I was younger, I'd turn to other writers and the way they always said it better. Turn to them for inspiration. For escape. For comfort in the thought ...

5 Question Friday

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, February 19, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Friday already? Woohoo! Normally, Friday doesn't mean much. I'm a SAHM so, my days are pretty much all the same. Hubby works on most Saturdays so, Friday is just another day. But, he informed me yesterday that he isn't working this weekend so....Woohoo Friday!

It's been a good week. Got a lot of work done this week. For the most part, the weather was great and the kids were able to play outside every day. The other day when I thought the washer broke, it decided to prove me wrong when I went ...

Sorry about the delay, folks! Feeling a bit under the weather today.

If you want to play along, please do! Grab the button image, link it back here, make your blog post and link up! If you don't have a blog, no worries! Play along in the comments!

Well, last night's episode was pretty good. I'm getting frustrated at the promise of answered questions because it seems that answered questions only lead to more questions! I certainly still have more questions after last night's episode.

Not Me Monday

Posted by Robin Haws on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Not Me Monday 
This blog carnival was started by MckMama. Head over to her blog and see what everyone else has NOT been up to.

It did not go from literally freezing temps to tank top weather and back to freezing all in the span of the last 7 days. That would never happen south Texas! I'm so over the cold weather. I loved when it got cold. Love wearing my cute winter clothes. Love wearing jackets and curling up with comfy blankets. But, after the warmth of yesterday, I'm over it. I certainly didn't buy three ...

First Time

Posted by Robin Haws on Saturday, February 13, 2010,
Something that my hubby says to me sometimes has been rolling around in my head for a few days now.

"Today is the first time you've done today."

I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Online discussions about one thing or another and things that have happened lately in real life (I hate that term. It makes everything online out to be fake.) all have me thinking a lot about perceptions, judgments and expectations.

I think that all three of those things are perfectly normal. Even judgment. Try...

Long day ending in awards...

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, February 4, 2010,
Alright, it's been a whacked out day. I meant to do this award post earlier today but, life got in the way. It's Livestock Show time around here. I'm not sure if this is a southern thing or a Texas thing but, it consists of kids showing livestock and people buying them. That's the basic gist of it. Not super exciting but, we've got nieces and nephews showing animals, aunts and uncles who are a big part of it and our kids love to go watch. So, hubby took a half day and was on his way to the sh...

Big sighs in the house last night.

Sighs of relief. I was convinced that the power would go out, the tv would go out, something would interrupt the night of tv that I had waited for so long to watch.

Sighs of brief understanding.

Sighs of frustration and total incomprehension as the new season of Lost got underway and showed viewers that we know nothing!

I'm not sure where to even begin. I'll premise this by saying that I have no clue what will happen. I may make some guesses and pose some ...

Posted by Robin Haws on Tuesday, February 2, 2010,
**First, let me say that if you don't understand the title of this post then I demand you go out and rent (or totally just buy) The Princess Bride.

I was going to do another post about Lost, what with it being D-Day and all. Then I thought about my dear readers who maybe are not counting down the actual minutes to the show tonight. With that and the thought of all the Lost posts that will inevitably appear once the show starts, I got the ol' noodle crankin' and am going to take a crack at som...

Monday again? Seems like we just had one of these last week.

So, I am not being showcased today on the blog of the Mom-Stuff Community.

How crazy is that?

No. I mean it.

Are they crazy?

Really though. I'm super flattered. The Mom-Stuff community is really cool and has tons of great (and free- my favorite price) resources for moms. The blog feature about me is here. They'll be doing differe...
