Brotherly Love

I had to document this moment. Today was the “Meet the Teacher” day at my kids’ school. This is the first year my son has to share this moment with his sister. She is now a kindergartner. We went to her room first to make the appropriate fuss, and he refused to be seen anywhere […]

Camping Tried To Kill Us

But we prevailed!! My husband and I recently bumped our heads. It must have happened in our sleep, I’m thinking a giant 2×4 fell across the bed and we never noticed because we went and got a travel trailer. I keep calling it an RV because it’s just easier. When I say the word “RV” […]

Bad Writer

I figure it’s better to have fewer posts than many posts that are babbling on and on about nothing in particular. So, summer. We are in the trenches of summer here. I’ve managed to keep sanity until about two hours ago. I am so in need of school to begin now. Like, now. Some people […]
