It's one of "Those" days. It was already going to be a busy day - especially in the afternoon. That was before the oldest sons bus didn't show up and before I discovered one of our cats isn't putting weight on his hind foot. So now I'm waitin... Read more

After dinner tonight my husband and I decided we would go for a walk as a family. The 8 yr old was not happy. He was even more unhappy when he couldn't talk us out of walking the 4 half loops in our neighborhood. If we walk the perimeter of ... Read more

Our house sets to where a lot of the neighbors leaves blow into our yard and our next door neighbors yard. The best thing I can say about it is raking and bagging up leaves is good exercise. We usually mulch the leaves and put them on our gard... Read more

Have you ever noticed how things seem to get scheduled all on the same day. I have 4 meetings today. None the rest of the week. It seems to keep happening that way. Makes for a busy day.... Read more
It's light out!

It is light out! While I will miss the daylight at the end of the day, it's so nice to see it this early. It makes getting the younger one up easier. It's still dark out when the older child has to get up for school but it's getting light by ... Read more
