Time

Crossposted at Mothers With Cancer Todd and I will celebrate our 21st anniversary in June. Some days it doesn’t seem half that long and others it seems like our golden anniversary is just a few years away. I’ve been trying to organize all my photographs from the past 21+ years and I can’t help but…

GUESS WHERE I AM

If you answered my cozy couch you would be wrong. However, if you answered the big, comfy green chair which used to be Todd’s but has somehow become MY big, comfy green chair you would be correct! GUESS WHAT I’M DOING If you answered fretting about missing work you would be wrong. If you answered…

About The Weather

Here we are again, wishing. and hoping. and thinking. and praying. Get it? Anyone? No?

Sickies, Weight, Age, and Other Depressing Subjects

I’m almost afraid of jinxing myself by typing this, but since I’m not the superstitious type I’m going to type it anyway. Everyone in my family has been sick except for me. Taylor started it off, to be quickly followed by Katie and Todd. Apparently all those immune system workouts at the preschool last year…

Continuing…

I’m going to see if I can knock out the rest of the holiday saga. Here we go… * Taylor has continued on with his yearly Christmas tradition of being sick on Christmas. Poor baby. I am not kidding. Every stinkin’ year he has a head cold or a sinus infection or bronchitis or something.…
