The Start of Another School Year

The kids go back to school tomorrow. Taylor is a senior now and Katie a freshman. You read that right. Two kids in high school. I can’t figure out when that happened. My Facebook peeps are telling me that either I blinked or turned around. Well thanks a lot, friends. Why didn’t you warn me…

Girls' Day Out

Katie starts school on Monday so today we had a Girls’ Day Out. What a great day it was! First were Sunflower Spa Pedicures which were divine. We sat in massage chairs with heated pillows around our necks. Our feet received a sunflower scrub followed by a green tea mask and then wrapped in hot…

TP Update/Foob Brilliance

Remember the Great Toilet Paper Debacle of ’09? I had asked Taylor to look in the hall closet upstairs to see if there was any toilet paper. I heard him open the door and I envisioned him diligently searching so I took his word for it when he said, “no”. Imagine my surprise on Saturday…

Whidbey Island: A Photographic Tour – The Beach

As I mentioned in my last post, I took over 1200 pictures. Some great, some horrible, most tolerable. Don’t worry. I won’t share them all. That would be like going to great Uncle Horace’s house and watching his vacation slides. Great for insomniacs, bad for blog readers. I am going to break them up, though.…

The Party's Over…

Last night I caught the red eye out of SeaTac for a non-stop to Philly where I landed around 7:00 this morning. Which was 4:00 AM to my Pacific Time Zone adjusted self. Thankfully I have nothing to do today other than sleep, readjust and download over 1200 pictures Precious blessed me with. Not 1200…

A Little Teaser

We arrived home from our trip to Arkansas Sunday night and I’m leaving again in the morning for a short girls’ weekend out west. When I get back and have my bearings I’ll tell you all about both trips. In the meantime, here are a couple of collages of things we saw while on the…
