Frankie Says, RELAX!

What, you don't have one of these? In my next life, I want to be a cat. Not MY cat, because, well, he's already used up 3 of his lives and, well, you know. Aaaaanyway. The point I'm trying to make (and yes, I'll get there, eventually) why do cats always seem so gosh-darned relaxed? [sound of crickets chirping] Unless, there's a dog around. Or, kids. Oh, and something bigger that can, you know, eat it, well, that would be REAL bad. Aaaaanyway. All it takes is one look at MY cat, all curled up on a chair, or snuggled... Read more →

The Seven Years of Mommyblogging and Happy Everything!

Almost 3 years ago, I watched my oldest daughter leave the house, for the first time, as a freshman in high school and I thought to myself...PHEW!...1 down and 3 to go! Heather's 8th Grade Formal This year, Heather (she's my middle girl) celebrated her last year of middle school by attending the 8th grade formal. Glen's 5th Grade Graduation Glen (my only son) graduated 5th grade and is officially now the 3rd Thompson to hit the middle school...in 5 years. Happy 9th Birthday, Hopey Aaaand, my youngest daughter just celebrated her last year, before hitting double-digits and was SO... Read more →

Have You Thanked A Mom Blogger, Lately?

If I've learned anything, in my 7 years of blogging (besides, the fact it's not a good idea to change from one hosted blog site, to another, before backing up your archives, der!) the most important take away is: The words I write (or, choose to publish) really don't matter, unless I've touched someone, in a positive, or negative way. Hopefully, in a positive way, because, well, I don't know of anyone who blogs to feel bad about stuff, on purpose, nor would I want to. So, when my friends Cooper and Emily over at TheMotherhood.com asked me if I'd... Read more →

Hump Day: Breakfast of Champions (i.e. Holy Hannah Montana, It IS the Week From Hell, Week!)

If you have a kid graduating/promoting/stressing over her hair for the 8th grade formal/and/or, celebrating a birthday, this week...then, you know I meant the Pepto Bismol, right? Wake me up when Monday comes!!! © 2010 This Full House Blog Read more →

You Know You're From Jersey When...

On the 174th day of our school daze my true love sent to me...an email that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the our 10th grader's finals, 8th grader's graduation, 5th and 3rd grade promotions, or the fact that Hope is turning 9 years-old on Wednesday (i.e. my youngest's last year in single digits) oh, and the fact that my camera AND my beloved HP laptop are fubar...YO! [inhales deeply, exhales in total denial] So, how DO you know if a person (like me) is REALLy from Jersey? Besides, the fact that I know how to order a pork roll... Read more →

The Boy Who Lived, Without
A Bedroom Door?

Hopey's puppet of a mean principal that's supposed to be a clown (says, she was told to think out of the box) displayed at the coffee counter (or, caw-fee, if you're from Jersey) Last week (I think) our school district held a book fair at our local Barnes & Noble and my two youngest children were invited to read their persuasive writing pieces. "So, what's yours about?" My almost-9-year-old daughter wrote about being tall enough (FINALLY!) to experience her first ride on "a real roller coaster" during a visit to Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ last June. "Aaaand, what... Read more →

Secretly, Secret Vlog

Secretly, Secret Vlog from Liz Thompson on Vimeo. This is what happens, when you go to work and one of your kids "accidentally" finds your Flip camera and attempts to video tape one of her sisters "not on purpose," of course! [snort] Such drama, eh? Love that she mentions my blog: "Do you think I survived, or do you think I died (i.e. she got busted and her sister killed her) leave your answer on ThisFullHouse.com!" Can't wait to see what happens during their summer break, if it EVER gets here, I mean! © 2010 This Full House Blog Read more →
