I sat here for a couple hours this morning trying to decide what to write about. I have so many topics swirling around in my head, I couldn’t decide which one to go with. Should I blog about the 5-week-old Yorkie puppy we have been dog-sitting for the past week and how sad I am […]

I knew the time would come. I really did. Still, secretly I hoped that maybe, just maybe, I’d be one of the few lucky ones to pass through this era unscathed, admired and adored, like I always was. You see, I have become inexplicably, ridiculously, embarrassingly stupid. And annoying. Just ask my nearly-14-year-old daughters. I’ve […]

The girls’ last Middle School Spring Concert was Thursday night. I had to take Cody and Logan along because Glen wasn’t able to get back in time to stay with them. Since the concert started around Logan’s typical bed time, I figured it would be a rough couple of hours trying to keep them busy […]
Logan was so excited about today’s field trip, he woke up just a bit past 6 a.m. this morning because he couldn’t sleep any longer. When I got up, I had a headache and sore throat, so I told him I wasn’t feeling well and asked him if he would feel bad if I didn’t […]
