Front door wreath for Spring: cheap and easy way to pimp your front door!

I'm not a big fan of our front door. I think it's boring. But because there are no windows when you step inside our hallway, there are not a lot of options on improving our front door.

I ordered a Spring wreath on AliExpress. And I think it looks great! How does your front door look? Make sure you don't…

I am the alpha and the omega, the judge and the jury

When you play your trump card, and things don't turn out the way you planned, there's nothing else to do but to try and save face. Insufficient evidence So in the matter of the mystery of the Stolen Bonbons I find that there is insufficient evidence to try and convict anybody. The perp has not come foreward and fessed up. Therefore he or she still walks among us, and shall remain doing so. It's a real bummer. I declare an Unsolved Mystery In light of this I have no choice but to declare an…

Why is there a bath tub on the side of the road?

I was busy making memories to commerate my youngest daughter's birthday, so I was taking the whole family for a walk. As we were walking along, we came across the strangest thing: A bath tub on the side of the road. That's not even what mystified me But the bath tub lying there wasn't what mystified me. It was the way it's was chained to a tree, so no one could take it away. Why did someone throw his bath tub out on the side of the road, but then care enough to make sure it would stay there?…

Lockdown outing during Covid-19

Three of my children have left the nest. But it's not empty, because I still have two children living at home. And because of the Covid-19 pandemic they've been home more than ever. The last time they saw the inside of a classroom was in March 2020! Since then, all lessons have been online. Social outings are not an option either. So I worry about their mental and physical well being. This can't be healthy! It can't be good for young adults to spend all this time at home, sitting behind a…

I quit!

'I'm gonna quit Jan,' I told my son and let myself fall on his bed. The same bed I had just changed. Jan grinned a bit. The work of a mom is neverending 'My work as a mom doesn't pay, it never ends, and I never get to have a vacation. That's why I quit.' And to prove my point I stretched out on the freshly laundered sheets and hummed the first bars of Johnny Paycheck's song: 'Take this job and shove it.' Quitting is not an option I don't think you can quit, Jan said. 'Why not?' 'Well, I…

Mean Mom Syndrome

When we moved to the countryside I finally gave in, and we got two cats. Four years later we even got a little dog. But for many years, I firmly put my foot down when it came to pets. In 2011 I wrote this post about it. Mean Mom Syndrome For years now, I've been denying my kids the joy of having their own pet. Even though I'm not an animal lover, there's no pet on earth I wish to subject to the care, or lack thereof, of my kids. Through the years the kids have resigned themselves to the fact…

New Year wishes: what should I wish for?

It's 2021! A whole new year lies ahead! So I started saying: 'Happy new year!' but then I stopped and thought: 'Wait a minute. That's not very realistic, is it. No one can be happy all the time.' Wouldn't it be better to wish for something that's kind of universal. That will help you get through the good times ánd through the hard times? And then I thought of Epictetus. So here's my new year wish for you! 'I hope you'll find serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the courage to…

The secret of Santa Clause

'Who's cheating who,' sang Charly McClain. That's exactly what I wondered when my 11 year old son told me he found out Santa Clause was just another case of the Tooth Fairy when he was 8. 'I just didn't tell you, because I wanted to get my presents,' he explained. So all that time we thought we were keeping the secret of Santa Clause from him, he was keeping his own secret... That's parenting for you That's parenting for you. More often than not, the joke's on you...
