A Little Bit of Ben and a Tiny Bit of Jerry

Katie and I were at the grocery store the other day and saw these tiny, little Ben & Jerry’s containers, complete with their own plastic spoon in the lid. They were so cute so we, of course, had to buy a couple. Supposedly they’re one serving, but I thought the regular size Ben & Jerry’s…

It All Makes Sense Now

While at the grocery store this morning I saw a woman wearing a pink bandanna on her head and a pink breast cancer bracelet on her wrist. I was drawn to her – being of the same sisterhood and all – but I debated whether or not I should say anything. Then I remembered when…

All Our Goings On

Tonight was the high school band’s banquet and dance. Of even more importance – tonight was the night Taylor met his girlfriend’s father for the first time.

HAIR'S THE DEAL

I am in the midst of a parental dilemma. Taylor has hair issues and I’m trying to be a good mom, letting him be himself. **rolling eyes** He’s 15-years-old and likes his hair on the long side. The front of his hair slants down over his eyes and he’s constantly doing the Shrek 2 Prince…

Blog Buddies are the Bomb!

(Do people still say that??) Anyhoo – I great big THANKS to all of you who had such gracious comments for me on my less than chipper post. I’m a little on the embarrassed side because that was the first post on my blog for quite a few people. I really, really, REALLY hope they…

Petri Dish Additives

I now have two more things to add to my ever-growing list of physical complaints. I have developed patches of itchy rashes in various places on my body and I started another bleeding episode. Seriously. I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to. Which I don’t. I’m not feeling particularly brave or strong or…
