Is It Love or Laundry?

It’s February. The month of Love. The month of my 10-year wedding anniversary. And to make it sloppier with hearts, flowers, and that gosh darn love is all around- it’s Valentine’s Day. This is the month that romance is bursting at the seams but the only thing I can really think of is why the hell does my laundry multiply? Instead of roses, chocolate, and maybe even a toss in the sheets (that need to be cleaned) I am trying to figure out if gremlins live in my laundry....more

Snow, Dinner and a Toilet

Yup, doing a double post today.  I've pre-written a couple but since the weather is playing a huge part in my life right now...It is quite beautiful this early, early morning and I'm happy to be all safe and warm at home today.  The Hubby is being a real hard headed guy this morning.  He is pretty determined that he can go work out at Hillcrest (not going to be open!) and then on to the office (where none of our guys are going to be there).  For gosh sakes we can not even see the road out in front of our house for the blowing stuff and the pile up.  He will drive me...more

Everyday is not the same, her sugar levels are never perfect and with puberty knocking on our door it will get worse. Having a pre-teen with type 1 scares me but not as much as having a teenager, yikes....more

Wow! I can completely relate to this post. My daughter is 11 and was diagnosed in October of ...more

The Other Day the Music Died: Remembering John Lennon

I know the day the music died refers to the plane accident that took Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper, but I can't help but think of John Lennon's death as the day the guitar strings went silent. When this man who had helped revolutionize rock-n-roll was gunned down by Mark David Chapman and the world lost one of its great musical poets -- a showman and activist; peacenik and passionate. ...more
